The Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 ARE different!
4.0 -- Better panel, probably a Super LCD (or Super Clear may be Samsung's name). Deeper color, holds color and black levels at wide angles.
5.0 -- Convinced that it's a VA-type panel, based upon shifting gamma at near black. Viewing angles, while wide, suffer from a slight color shift (see what happens to blue) and the black level deteriorates.
4.0 -- Good maybe slightly better than the 5.0?
5.0 -- Good
4.0 -- 1200mah, user replaceable, no life info, remaining battery shown as a percentage
5.0 -- 2400mah, user non-replaceable (so they think), slightly over 12 hours, remaining battery shown as a bar.
4.0 -- Brightness can be changed during play
5.0 -- Brightness cannot be changed because the firmware thinks its stuck in auto brightness mode.
4.0 -- No LED Flash
5.0 -- LED Flash.
4.0 -- Must remove back cover to access slot. The back however, is user removable -- there is a fingernail slot at the bottom.
5.0 -- Must open small latch to access slot
4.0 -- has small sliding cover for microUSB
5.0 -- no cover for microUSB
4.0 -- Volume rocker on left, on/off on right
5.0 -- Volume rocker on right, on/off on right
4.0 -- jack on top
5.0 -- jack on bottom
Update: Sound issue with 4.0 may have been my mistake, clarified 4.0 back removal.
