Samsung has ditched its usual DNSe sound modification suite for a new system called Sound Alive which lets you select profiles from a 5 x 5 grid with compass points at Treble, Vocal, Bass and Instrumental. It's a simple and effective system, and you can access a variation of it from the video playback screen too.
The music player is just dandy
The list of media codecs supported includes Ogg, MP3, Flac, AAC, WMA and WAV, audio along with H.264, Xvid/DivX and WMV video, though the last won't play DRM-encrypted BBC iPlayer files.
Other things the Galaxy won't do are sync playlists from an MTP media player, play gapless albums gaplessly, handle video subtitle files, or record from its FM radio.
DNSe out, Sound Alive in

What happened to.....
....decent capacity music players ?
I have a Creative Zen Vision M 60gb music player.
What happened to the 'do one thing, do it well' devices, rather than trying to get one thing to be average at lots ?
I am in intrigued by Cowons big 160gig player, but that is about all there is on the market right now.
If this Samsung f is the future, then we will end up paying for a lot of 'stuff' that is really just not needed.....
The ability to use Winamp on this device is tantalizing. Winamp has a lot of the things the reviewer found irritating, as well as sync over wifi, radio, etc.
wanna try it!
well, nice player! One of the first I would say, there will be better, more efficient and slim, more faster and more beautiful)) Personally I think that this device might beat iPod touch on several fronts. As to be more precise it has micro-SD slot for extending inner memory, you don’t need to use iTunes to download any music contents on your pmp, and very simple and convenient usage of Android Market which definitely will lover consumers to buying it, as well as GPS modile and FM-radio. Though defeating Apple stuff seems very difficult))
Orange San Francisco is £89.99 in Argos.
My mp3 player died last week, so guess what I'm treating myself to? Pick-up tomorrow.
The icon is for Samsung's pricing department.
Wow! you utterly convinced me with a whole series of well reasoned arguments that it's a bad buy, but then award it 65% ? From the write-up given surely it's in 35%-45% territory.
