Advantages: Compact, great looks, useful features.
Disadvantages: Tiny screen, may be too small for some.
If you have read my reviews in the past you may have come across the one I did on the Samsung YP-P2 2GB version. I am very much into Samsung as a brand and not just because I trust their technology. Yes, their products have great features and offer the latest technology at the best prices, for me though it has to be the looks that do it for me. Samsung have some of the sleekest looking gadgets out there, DVD players, mp3 players, CD players, TV;s - you name it, they do a sexy version of it!
Following up my Samsung YP-P2 is the very capable Samsung YP-U6 with a 4GB storage capacity. If you have seen previous MP3 players from Samsung this one very much carries the same design features. The rounded edges, yet again that sleek and sexy black finish and overall this MP3 player is aesthetically beautiful to look at. Priced at around £30-40 the Samsung YP-U6 is competitively priced in comparison to the Apple models it competes with.
As with most MP3 players this one can effectively double up as a storage device as you can connect it easily to your laptop or PC and play MP3 files direct through your desired workstation. The YP-U6 has a number of interesting features. An FM Tuner may come as standard on most MP3 players, but a voice recorder certainly doesn't! The voice recorder is simple to operate and files can be transferred as simply as a music file can. Samsung claim 20 hours of battery life, which is always taken with a pinch of salt as a rule, but I wouldn't argue if they had said 12-15 hours. A stopwatch is another feature that isn't normally seen on such a device - not one this small anyway. This comes under the 'Fitness Mode' as does the calorie counter and vocal alerts which aid you with getting into shape!
The YP-U6 supports MP3, OGG, WMA and FLAC file formats and has the standard 3.5mm audio output jack. Weighing in at around the 37gram mark it is very compact indeed, and the dimensions are around 87mm x 27mm x 12mm. The only downside for me would be the screen. As I am used to the generous touchscreen of my previous player I don't appreciate the 1" CSTN display at 128x64 pixels. At this price, though, can you really argue that the samsung YP-U6 isn't upto the job of satisfying your needs on the go?
Summary: Value for money, great looking MP3 player and one that will keep you interested for a while.
