At A Glance

Sony found the right balance between big enough for video and gaming and not too big to hold and carry comfortably, but the device's fixed storage and nonremovable battery limit its flexibility.

With its generous display, expandable storage, and thin-and-light design, the Galaxy Player 4.2 is a solid option for anyone looking for an Android-powered media player.

Samsung's Galaxy player 3.6 provides a lower-priced, Android-powered alternative to the iPod Touch, but its screen and audio quality come up short.
