Review: Samsung Replenish
The Replenish uses the the stock Android media player. It is bare bones, but it does get the job done. You can sort through your playlists, artists, albums, and songs easily enough, and album art comes through properly when tagged to the music. The media player can be sent to the background while you do other things such as browse the web or check Twitter. It goes without saying that the music player has a decent widget for the home screen, as well.
There are no third-party music applications preinstalled, though they are easy to find in the Android Market.

The Replenish has minimal video play back features. Only the stock Android YouTube player is on board out of the box. You'll need to download third-party apps to handle side-loaded video content. The small screen, however, doesn't make for the best playback device.
