Default Samsung R1 GMP3 full Review

Hey, Here is my review of the R1.
Even if you don't understand french, you can look at it, there are 2 videos, more than 80 pictures and a comparison with the P3!

Google translation

The R1 is a good mp3 player in the whole but the new features are not as good as the others. Beat DJ feature is a useless gadget, hardly funny and the TV out is not very good. Besides, the firmware is not perfect yet: the UI is not smooth, there are still some bugs and above all the DNSe control is disastrous, which provides a very bad battery life. But the R1 has a very good audio quality. No reencoded movies can be easily watched even if the screen size is a bit too small for feature films. And the bluetooth feature may be very practical in some cases. But numerous features are similar to the P3. So does it have a raison d'Ítre (whaouhh a french word )? One has to admit the R1 has no real arguments to stand out from the P3. Actually the R1 is a P3 but a little smaller and with less features. That doesn't keep it from being a good mp3 player but the P3 will likely put it in the shade!

Good points:

* Audio quality
* Supports many audio codecs
* Finition
* Good size
* RDS and recording FM radio
* Support videos without reencoding
* TV out
* Sold with in-ear-phones (in France)
* Bluetooth

Bad points:

* No tactile buttons for playing controls.
* Non standard USB connector
* Gadget or useless features (Beat DJ, calendar)
* TV out quality and video cable in option
* Average battery life and even disastrous with DNSe enabled
* Bad transfer rate
