+ 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 EVO), but see "Cons" below
+ Responsive Touch Screen; no lag issues at all, unlike other lower priced devices I tried in the past
+ Integrated FM Radio; a nice feature, especially when traveling
+ Easy Network Setup; was connected to my home Wi-Fi in minutes after unboxing
+ Good Battery Life; very pleased with the longevity playing music, games, etc
- Small Screen Size; slightly smaller than the iPod Touch and much smaller than the EVO
- App Support; does not support all apps, most notably "Netflix" (installs but crashes, Philips Tech Support indicated they are working on this issue)

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 added my own MP4 movie by side loading and it played perfectly.
Android ran quickly. Apps started up fast. The screen changed orientation quickly. The keyboard is responsive. The Connect walked me through setting up Wi-Fi and connecting to Google services. Wi-Fi reception seems about the same as with the Touch, not spectacular, not terrible. The Connect has a lot of apps preloaded, including Songbird for music, Audible, Rhapsody, YouTube, Android Market and so on. Songbird is an adequate music player, though it lacks touch volume control. I had the same frustrating half hour with the connect to that as I experienced with my LG phone when trying to connect to the Android store. I got it done, but it isn't the seamless/painless experience that Apple delivers.Read more ›
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 music....it 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 alone with little interference......I really am starting to like this thing.
I know this review is totally lacking in tech lingo, if I were just a little younger I don't think it would be the case. I can thoughtfully assure anyone in about the same place as myself that you can figure this thing out in no time and really enjoy what so many others do. I know it has more features that I will find, but for the ones I have used so far I is just a wonderful thing!
I hope, if you get one of these, you will be as pleased as I. It amazes me how much you can do and enjoy with such a small package.....oh, I do have wireless high speed Internet, so possibly I'm not awfully far behind my grandson.
