How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Price cuts have made this Android-powered portable media player, which once cost $70 more than a comparable iPod touch, a potentially viable option. Now available for about the same price as a touch, it includes an FM radio, the ability to add extra storage via a microSD card slot, GPS, and, of course, a much larger screen. That big screen makes it a little bulky, and most people will probably still prefer the touch (or the Galaxy Player 4.2), but if you're looking for something smaller than a full-size tablet, but with most of a tablet's features, the Galaxy Player 5's lower price makes it at least worth considering.
