Samsung Galaxy S

The Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi is one of the best music players to be found on the market and it seems almost an insult to describe it just as an MP3 player, which is essentially what it is.

It’s also possible to make free internet calls using the Qik application which comes pre-installed on the device, take pictures with the built in camera which has a number of features including easy touchscreen settings, flash and different picture settings.

As it uses Google’s Android operating system, the Samsung Galaxy S 5.0 allows you to access bundled Google services such as voice search, Google Maps, Gmail, Google Talk, YouTube and much more.

Not forgetting what this device was actually manufactured for, music on the Samsung Galaxy S 5.0 is powered by its maker’s own audio signal post-processing technology that makes for impressive sound performance. Music comes alive and is brilliantly clear and can be tuned to suit your ear even finer with the 6 different presets.

Samsung’s unique technology optimises this mobile devices so that  you can feel like you’re in a cinema with the ‘virtualizer’ feature that turns two-channel sound into a 360-degree, 3D experience.
