First Look: Samsung S3 Slim

1:17 /

The Samsung S3 Slim MP3 player is a solid option for budget-minded users with an eye for design and an ear for audio.

[Music] ^M00:00:04 >> Jasmine France: Hi, I'm Jasmine France, senior associate editor for CNET.com. I'm here today with the Samsung S3 Slim. This is a very sleek and stylish player from Samsung that comes in a variety of color options: You have green, red, blue, white and black. It only comes in a 4-gigabyte capacity for 79 dollars, so that's actually a really good deal for a Samsung player. It offers really great sound quality, and it comes with a fair array of features although we were a little disappointed to see that Samsung has cut out a couple of features that we really were liking, like the built-in Bluetooth and the voice recorder. However, you do get an FM radio and you have video playback capability as well as photo support. Unfortunately, videos must be transcoded through the Samsung software, so that's a bit of a bummer too. It does have a touch-sensitive control panel in the front. You just have to like touch it together to light up, so there's no talk tail feedback, or anything that can be a little bit of a pain for some users who requires having an extra step to get the buttons to light up and then press it to get the response that you want, but it's quite accurate. It's definitely a flashy interface. It might not be for everybody. We haven't really noticed a hit on battery life; but again, it has a very sound quality and it's only 80 dollars, so if you're looking for sleek and stylish flash player, the Samsung S3 could be just one for you. I'm Jasmine France for CNET.
