Default Samsung P2 Opinion Thread

So I had an idea to stop all the "how does the P2 compare to ______?" threads. This is it.
I just want you to post here how you feel about the P2 so when people wondering that will know where to go instead of make a whole new thread!

What I think:

Pros:
- Superior Music Quality<---------------|
- Nice touch response
- Durable to some extent
- Long battery Life
- the amazing thing called Bluetooth
- DNSe --------------------------------------|

Cons:
- Samsung Media Studio isn't that great, but still serves it's purpose (still, there are alternatives)
- Lack of BlueWaves anymore
- Because of the P3, P2's aren't getting much attention

What I think:

Pros
- Superior sound quality
- Bluetooth is handy for those who need it.
- the DNSe EQ is really good and can improve sound alot.
- Durability is good
- Touch screen is really good and dont need to press hard.
- movie quality is very good. widescreen is nice.
- perfect size / easy to use / looks awesome

Cons

- EP-370 earphones that come with p2 dont suit it. pretty shitty.
- Battery life only refers to low sound volume. so it isnt going to last as long as the 30hours its supposed to get.
- Not as loud at max volume but does not get distorted so i dont think thats much of an issue.

Overall : top player, fun and easy to use, looks cool, sounds amazing, fun to watch movies on it because it gives you a surround sound effect on a widescreen . But does need better earphones.

The positives of the P2 will be the same for most people. Where the P2 does things well, it generally outweighs the negatives eg sound quality. So far I don't see anything to add, but the cons, well that's another story, Hammy...

Cons:
Can't use custom EQ with BTooth
Can't use the radio with BTooth
Touchscreen is still a tad laggy.
Not loud enough.
SMStudio is terrible.
Accessories? What accessories!?!
Aside from Suduko the available games are horrible.

I can live with the above cons BUT the negative that I'm not dealing with for the third and last time (as my warranty is expired) is DEADPHONE JACK.

I don't treat my players roughly, I don't lift it by the headphone cable. In fact, I have a Z5 that stills works perfectly. DPJ is clearly a result of terrible design or manufacturing quality. I have a friend who bought the P3 a few weeks ago and all I told him was I hope they fixed the DPJ problem. As good as the P3 sounds when I make my next purchase in the next month or two I'll probably switch to another brand.

It's too bad, cuz when the P2 works, it does it well.

Samsung should take a nod from Microsoft (RROD) and extend the warranty to cover DPJ only issues.
