Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) This Philips Android Connect MP3 player is a viable alternative to the more expensive Apple iPod touch 8GB (4th Generation) - Black - Current Version as a multimedia player and app platform. I also have an iPod Touch and HTC EVO (Android), so will make some comparisons in the body of the review. Here are my observations:

Pros -
+ Good Sound; using both the internal speakers and headphone jack, the sound quality is as good or better than the iPod
+ Good Display; good video quality
+ Good Web Browsing; easy to navigate
+ Good Earphones; the included earphones are much better than the pair that came with the iPod Touch
+ App Support; runs most of my favorite Android apps, including Angry Birds, Plants vs Zombies, Kindle, Pandora, and YouTube (loading the "Amazon Appstore" gave me access to all of the apps I already bought for my... Read more
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) With Apple selling so many iPod Touches, I'd think the options for Android equivalents would be larger. Well, Philips has entered the arena. If you are not a fan of Apple this is an adequate alternative.

When I opened the packaging, I was surprised at the size of the Connect. It's a bit over twice as thick as my iPod Touch and a bit longer. It seemed heavier but I weighed both of the devices and the Connect is 112 grams vs. 105 for the iPod Touch. That's probably not enough to truly tell by holding the two players. Call it a wash. The screen on this is 3.2 inches vs. the 3.5 of the Touch. That is noticeable. The Connect has an FM radio receiver built in, which works fine. The Touch doesn't. The big omission is cameras. The Connect doesn't have any, so no video conferencing or snapshots.

While the screen of the Connect is a bit smaller, it's bright and crisp. The Connect comes with a couple of demo movies. They look good. The screen is nicely sensitive to touch. I... Read more
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) I should explain that I am accused of being a senior citizen by some and I do qualify as being one behind the curve when It comes to electronic gadgets. I don't have a smart phone or an I-pad etc., etc. I did break down and buy a Kindle Fire which is very simple and I almost have that one figured out.

And now for the Phillips Connect. At first I was a little frustrated, but got over most of that when I downloaded my first app. and found that about the same as for the Kindle. Downloaded a video and was on my way, I think a little patience and taking time really makes a difference.

I do some walking, decided to put on the earphones, put the Connect in my pocket and head out while listening to some rather lively was just great. To me the sound is terrific and has plenty of base for a "beat" to walk with.

Watching Netflix is slightly challenging as the picture is rather small, but it is private and I can go off into my own world and watch... Read more
