So that is the reason that makes Samsung, as the biggest competitor of Apple, decide to make the contender for iPod Touch, and it’s called Samsung Galaxy S Wifi, an Android device that also doesn’t come with phone functionality, just like the iPod Touch.

Offering users with much better experience than iPod Touch, Samsung Galaxy S Wifi looks great as a small WiFi tablet, because the screen size of this device sits between the screen size of smartphones and computer tablets. So this device could be another contender for iPod Touch in the future.
Okay then, this time, I’m about to show you 7 great things that could make this device as a great contender for iPod Touch.
1. Much Bigger Screen Size
One of the great things about Samsung Galaxy S Wifi is definitely its bigger screen size than iPod Touch. If playing games on iPod Touch is already a great experience on the 3.5 inch screen, then the 5 inch screen of this device will bring you much greater experience than on the iPod Touch.
2. It’s an Android, not iOS
It has become the true fact that Android users don’t get along really well with iOS users. Both sides always have something bad to say one to another. That’s why, for some people that don’t really adore Apple products, they will be proud to have Samsung Galaxy S Wifi in their pocket because it’s not an iOS device, it’s an Android.
3. Wide Range of Supported Apps on Google Play
Having been injected with Android OS, v.2.2 (Froyo), then it automatically gives users with wide range of applications and games across Android platform, which has quite huge collection for games, and it’s still growing until now. The great thing about this aspect is that you can get a pleasing experience of playing games on this small tablet, thanks to its 1GHz processor.
4. Much Better Battery Life than iPod Touch
iPod Touch has been really popular with its poor battery life, unlike the sibling, iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, which have powerful battery life. Many users of iPod Touch experience that in the heavy usage, mostly for gaming, iPod Touch, even the 4th generation, could only last around 3-4 hours in the long run, which is really bad if this device wants to be categorized as gaming device.
Fortunately, you don’t get that experience on this device. With the absence of phone functionality, which means no 3G or GSM whatsoever, the battery life of this device is improved to the next level and makes it better than the battery life of iPod Touch. It’s stated on reliable sources that Samsung Galaxy S Wifi could last around 60 hours in music play, while iPod Touch could only last around 40 hours in music play.
5. It Supports Adobe Flash
The most popular weakness of 2 Apple products, iPod Touch and iPhone is the absence of Adobe Flash support on both devices. Thus, creates limitations to run Flash-based programs or applications. The worst thing, iPod Touch and iPhone cannot even open Flash-based element on its pride web browser, Safari.
Luckily, on Samsung Galaxy S Wifi, the users can be happy to hear that this small tablet has already been armed with Adobe Flash support, allowing them to open any Flash-based programs, especially on the web browser.
6. It Supports External Memory
The other let down of having iPod Touch in your hand is definitely the fact that it doesn’t support external memory, which can be a pain in the butt for the users every time they want to insert new media files or anything on that device.
Luckily again, you don’t need to face that kind of experience because on Samsung Galaxy S Wifi, you are already given with 8GB/16GB internal memory on board, with the additional support of microSD memory card, which is expandable for up to 32GB. So you can put many things on this awesome device and the most importantly, in a really simple and easy way.
7. Great and Attractive User Interface
Apple is always strict when it comes to the use of attractive user interface on iPod Touch or iPhone. So if you finally decide to buy iPod Touch or iPhone, then you will also be forced to stare at the same exact static and boring user interface in a really long period of time (unless you jailbreak it).
On the other hand, on vast majority of Android devices out there, especially Samsung Galaxy S Wifi, in the default, you are already presented with a gorgeous looking user interface called Touch Wiz UI, where you can put new widgets and float them around the given Homescreen as many as you want.
Wallpaper can also be changed with more attractive photo if you are bored with the default background wallpaper. So everything on this small tablet is customizable, which makes it really addictive to use in the long run.
Well, those are 7 great things that make this device better than iPod Touch. So what do you think? Do you agree with the list above? Or maybe you have other opinion regarding the list above? If so, feel free to share yours on the comment section below.
