I purchased this after my earlier model Samsung was water damaged. For it's specification it is miles ahead of it's rivals. The ipod Nano has less features yet costs a good £20 more, so you're just paying for the brand name. The storage of 8GB is perfectly adequate for storing large amounts of Songs, Pictures, videos and games. This MP3 player has it all including a radio tuner which is often missing in most MP3 players in this price range. The sound is the real selling point here, crisp and clear with a beefy bass sound it is perfect for any type of music, from Opera to Rock. There are numerous equaliser settings and a setting you can adjust to suit your sound. Another great feature is the ability to watch movie files on the player. You can even download shows straight from the BBC iPlayer service straight to your player. With Games, a subway route planner, voice recorder and other nifty features this Mp3 player is head and shoulders above others in it's class and really easy to use.
I generally do rely on samsund products and this is no exception. My neice was dying for it so I couldn't say no. If I were to buy something like this for myself I probably wouldn't be that fond of it since the screen is pretty small but my eyesight isn't the best. But for a child or young teenager I think this is great. I wouldn't watch videos either on this but that won't stop kids from not doing it. The touch buttons give a stylish touch to this music player. As well as being a music player and video player it can also be used as a radio, this for me is a bonus point if you are on a long journey or need to relax by yourself. The battery life is also great it seems like you never have to charge it up for a week at least. Overall I coouldn't ask for something more ideal, for my neice maybe not for me though it does make travelling more exciting.
