Pump up the Bass
With the basic introduction over, it's time to load up some tunes.
There are a number of ways to get your music onto the phone, either using a card reader and dragging/dropping files straight on the card, using the connectivity cable to drag files into the directories like a memory stick or using Samsungs own media manager to set up playlists and manage folders. The final option is to use windows media player to manage the music. The device can be recognised as a portable device and thus you can synchronise playlists and drag and drop songs onto your phone.
With the multitude of choices available, it's easy to find a method you like to get the tunes on your phone. The Microsoft fanatics have media player, the geeks have the file system access for drag and drop audio pleasure and everyone else can just use the software provided.
With our tunes loaded up, it's time to see what the speakers can do. Hands nervous and sweaty, I slide the phone down to reveal the Bang & Olufsen twins while the screen reveals its sexy media menu.
Picking a song at random from the list, it starts to play and the speakers deliver a good range for their size. Turning up the volume to max, the speakers produce a decent volume that means people up to about five meters away can hear what you're listening to clearly in a public place.
After playing a selection of songs and messing with the equaliser presets, I can conclude that the speakers are without a doubt powerful and clear all the way up to the limit of the volume control, with no distortion like you would get on most phones.
However, the speakers still lack any kind of bass to them which does no favours for the phone as a mini boom-box. This is not a fault of the components, however, but of the sheer physics of the situation; there is no way to fit a decent sized speaker into a phone without the inherent problems of power, volume, size and a large magnet.
