Anonymous, 20 May 2012how to update it to gingerbread?? Dude! Do some research first before you comment. The gingerbread update had been released already a few months ago. It's much more faster and compatible with most apps with the upgrade. And i must say it has superb battery life.
Two year old operating system with no plans to update.
Forget Ice Cream Sandwich - it doesn't even have Gingerbread.
No support from Samsung either.
Get an IPod Touch instead!
Now I just got disappointed by the cost-benefit relationship of the Galaxy Player 5.0. For little ($40) more you can get an unlocked AT&T Captivate from Amazon which works just fine with my carrier.
Tom Bishop, 09 Apr 2012Checkout custom roms on galaxy player at xda. ICS/CM7/CM9 are out already. Now that's something worth trying. I really wanna buy this. Taking the words from another comment "at 200 bucks it's a stealth".
Has anyone tried the "SanDisk 64GB Mobile Ultra MicroSDXC" on this gadget yet? I know the card is supported by the GNote ans the SGS2 when formated into the phone. Since the card is $67 and the Galaxy 5.0 is $198 on Amazon, $265 sounds like a sweet deal for a WiFi mini tablet with 72 Gb storage (maybe about 68 Gb user accesible).
Is there a compatible stand with the tablet?
Can you listen to music without headphones?
Just remember this is not a phone this is more like a mini-tablet, the screen is as good as the new super AMOLED and the game support is great, Modern Combat 3, shadowgun, DeadSpace, Hot Pursuit are games that works just perfectly with no lag or problems, the speakers are louder and cleaner than my mini-stereo it has it's disadvantages like the customization or finding an alternative rom, but if you want a "portable console", music, a GREAT camera, and the louder speakers you've heard this samsung is fot you
JUst updated it to gingerbread 2.3.6 by using samsung kies and battery life is better, no issues and it is much more faster than before
mamun.xpb, 08 May 2012i m watching on this review page that,it has no edge,no gprs,no speed.is these crroct?internet... moreThe Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 has no phone. Internet access is very good using WiFi and it can be used for Skype, video streaming and everything else you might use your internet connection for. It's a bit like the iPod Touch in many respects but much bigger. It also has many other uses and is a brilliant device.
i m watching on this review page that,it has no edge,no gprs,no speed.is these crroct?internet is very essencial for every phone user.
This is really amazing. Satisfies me..i'll be keeping this item for long for sure...better than itouch and ipad..
this device is amasing . it costs less than an ipod an yet is waaay better. i had an ipod touch 4g and this device blows it away. the baterry is incredible , a full day of gaming without a problem ! and the display is fairly nice . for 200 bucks its a steal !
ars0577, 23 Mar 2012Hi There, Me also having trouble to scan wifi. Its happening since two days. I try my best to... moreDisconnect your router and modem and wait ten seconds to reboot.it's a froyo glitch
i saw this being sold for 418 us dollars and thats a bunch of crap. it is double the price of the ipod here in zim but ipod has double its specs but half its screen and the store selling it is a samsung store what a brand. the s2 goes for 800 dollars and the s5570 mini for 350. samsung has become all about profits with their cheap quality plastic phones and i am dissapointed being a former samsung fan. am going to apple!!!!
