Samsung Galaxy Player 50 Android PMP
Smartphone sans phone?
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
