Dedicated android music device? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Samsung used to make their Galaxy Player series, which is like you describe: an android version of the ipod touch. Sadly it was discontinued, and does not run the latest firmware (gingerbread!). I remember that the screen wasn't anything pretty either. It was really low resolution.

Really, a phone is the way to go. Used or new.

I can confirm the sound of my Note 2 is really good and nicer than my old S2.

I love my Note 3, and I find my GFs Note 2 (even though it's US variant) to be quite good, too. I especially love that Samsung allows the use of DAC via USB OTG as well.

Is this even a thing?

Are you seriously looking for a dedicated android device for music???

Why not just buy a cheap phone and get a bluetooth speaker

Android has a whole bunch of really great music apps (my favorite is PowerAmp), hence why he wants an Android device.

He doesn't want to "just buy a cheap phone and bluetooth speakers" because those sound beyond awful and would defeat the whole point.

Not sure about current devices, but I know that there is a Samsung Galaxy player. Ones I know of are based on the GS2. But, as already stated, phone of your choice.. turn airplane mode on (you can activate wifi while it is enabled).
