A Pebble With Earphones
The all new Samsung YP-S2 is a 2 GB MP3 player that is possibly one of the smallest we’ve seen. The design resembles ice.
The player has a few buttons on the underside that are used to control the player. There is no display to indicate track number or any other information. The only indication is through a flashing light on the top of the player.
Most of the confusion that new users will find will be due of the lack of a display. Modes are changed by holding down certain buttons, and the display light changes accordingly. Users will need to first look closely through the PDF manual to understand all of these controls.
The music quality through the supplied earplugs is alright, and there is nothing unexpected from it when played using other earphones. Even though this is such a tiny player, it can easily drive full-sized headphones just fine.
The biggest problem with the YP-S2QB is that it is extremely slow when it comes to transferring files. 500 MB of files took close to 10 minutes and 40 seconds which is atrocious.
The supplied CD contains the manual for the player and Samsung Media Studio 5. The software is a pretty good media player, syncs with the player and has a whole load of other features such as creating playlists, burning and ripping discs and downloading podcasts. The price for this 2 GB player is just Rs 2,750 which it makes it pretty affordadable, even though it doesn’t have all the features of a typical compact PMP such as an FM tuner, for example. If you want more in terms of features, spend a couple of hundreds more and you will have many to choose from.
