Conclusion

With a much better screen than the Galaxy Player 3.6, and more compact and portable than the Galaxy Player 5.0, the Galaxy Player 4.2 represents a comfortable mid-point for those seeking the “Goldilocks zone” of a good iPod Touch-style device at a reasonable price.

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2Although it’s true that you can step up to a more powerful 7-inch Galaxy Tab for just $50 more, the Galaxy Player is portable and convenient in ways that a tablet never will be, being easily pocketable or tucked into a purse or glove compartment. And while it seems a little cheap at times, it delivers a full Android experience for a lot less than what a smartphone would cost you, and that alone will make the sale to a lot of people.

Pros:

  • Good value
  • Solid feature set

Cons:

  • Weak camera
  • Casing is cheap and prone to smudging

Bottom Line:

A strong media player that doubles as a decent device for many other things, even if it’s not the prettiest thing in the world.
