Samsung U6 player review

Samsung continues to release playdrives - simple players with built-in USB. The idea is the same as in U5 - a little humor, a little sport, a nice price - and go ahead, conquer a niche. Let's understand what has changed compared to U5.

Design, construction

A lot has changed since U5. The body shape has become less playful, we have such an angular little thing without a hint of romanticism. Although, this does not apply to color, in this case we can observe pleasant pink shades - girls will really like this, but I doubt it for boys.

It is gratifying that the case is made of metal, the material pleasantly cools the hand and inspires confidence (there was plastic in the U5). The assembly is good, there are no squeaks and backlash. In the photographs and in real life, I saw two versions of the player, one is pink with white plastic, the second is completely black. Obviously, I prefer the second option. More colors will be added over time. High-quality plastic is used, on the upper end there is a 3.5 mm jack, a reset button, a microphone hole, a groove for attaching a strap. On the bottom is a retractable USB. Downloading files is extremely convenient if you have a laptop. But if the system unit is under the table, then this action will turn into horror, a USB extension cable will save you.

The small display has been changed to color, cover art is supported, now it makes some sense.

Device dimensions 86.9x26.7x12.3 mm, weight 34 grams. The pocket will not pull.

Management

Next to the display is a convenient and large enough joystick, it is pressed gently, everything is in order with that. At the end - Hyundai power / lock button, start recording button and back button, everything is quite logical. The diagonal of the CSTN-display is one inch, the resolution is 128x64 pixels, it is well readable, due to this, the use of the player does not cause problems.

Memory

Two modifications will go on sale, 2 GB or 4 GB of memory, when connected to the MacBook Pro, there were no problems with transferring files.

Opening hours

The claimed battery life is twenty hours, in reality the player works less, about seventeen and a half hours. The time for a full charge from a computer is about three hours, I had an idea to plug the U6 into a plug with a USB connector, but I didn’t risk it. Although, perhaps, this is quite a good way to charge such a player.

Music

Playback of files in MP3, WMA, Ogg, FLAC formats is supported, cover art is displayed during playback, you need to use the upper and lower buttons of the joystick to adjust the sound - only thirty points of adjustment, it is impossible to listen at the maximum. Headphones, as in the photographs, are not included in the package, there will be a simpler model. The player menu has standard filters - artists, albums, songs, genres, playlists, recorded files, music browser.

You can turn on SoundAlive mode in the settings, it can be automatic, normal, and so on - in fact, this function allows you to get something like "sound around". I don't really like these things, but someone will appreciate them. Right there, in the settings, change the playback mode, playback speed, skip the interval, turn the “tag” on or off.

The sound quality, of course, is very dependent on the headphones. Not a very good model will be included in the kit, in order to achieve a positive result, I would advise you to change the accessory. In principle, I only listened to MP3 on U6, the quality is quite good - I won’t find fault, it’s the most for everyday use.

Additional Functions

There is a radio with recording capability, plus you can activate the voice recorder at any time you wish. Recording in MP3 format (128 Kb / s), the quality is not bad if the player is located close to the sound source. It is best to keep it next to your mouth.

Fitness - everything works the same as in U5: first you need to choose your weight, daily goal (how many calories you plan to lose), after that exercise - walking, yoga, cycling, running and so on. There is a record of the results. In general, if you wish, you can use this function.

In the settings, you can choose your character, the so-called "popcon" - he will meet you when you turn on the player, run with you, and so on. I liked little Cthulhu the most. And there is also a very cool Beeline logo - I did not hesitate to make a video on U6, there is also about "popcons", do not miss it. Yes, you can even draw the character yourself!

Conclusions

In retail, the player will cost about two thousand rubles (1,790 rubles), maybe a little cheaper. It will be on sale very soon, let me remind you, two models - two and four gigabytes.

I liked that the case became metal, instead of a USB cap it became a “flip-out”, a color display, support not only MP3, but also FLAC, convenient control. Inexpensive, practical and versatile, there is nothing to complain about. Unless, it would turn on faster.
