Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G

 

More Info Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G bringing keyboard, longwinded name to T-Mobile September 19th Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G shows off all sides, sticks with new name Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q may be renamed to equally awkward Galaxy S Relay 4G We first...

Good everyday performance ; Comfortable grip ; Solid battery life

Flat, nearly unusable keyboard ; Weak camera ; Cheap, overly branded design

The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, T-Mobile's newest QWERTY slider, offers snappy performance and good battery life, but the uncomfortable keyboard is a dealbreaker.

Maybe you've noticed, maybe you haven't, but the Galaxy S 4G no longer exists at T-Mobile. Just one year ago, it replaced the Vibrant -- the carrier's first Galaxy S handset -- and now the Galaxy S 4G has similarly felt the cold embrace of Father Time....

Robust performance ; Long battery life ; Beautiful design ; Clear call quality

Bloatware galore ; Price

The Blaze 4G is a good handset that stops just short of greatness. Once it falls to a lower price, it'll be an excellent choice for those unwilling to splurge on top-shelf features.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review: The middle man

 

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as the far too long name suggests, is yet another incarnation of the original Galaxy S. Sure, it has grown an extra CPU core, to go with its 42Mbps network connectivity, but at the end of the day, the newcomer packs a lot...

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixels) resolution ; Android OS v2.3.6 with TouchWiz 4 launcher ; 1.5 GHz Scorpion dual-core CPU,...

No dedicated camera button ; The screen is let down by its PenTile matrix ; It is March 2012. Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread out of the box does not cut it anymore ; Ridiculous amount of non-removable T-Mobile bloatware with zero functionality

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G packs enough functionality to keep every potential Android user, who thinks that a screen over 4" in size is too big happy. It is well built, fast, and pocket friendly. It's also got some powerful hardware that makes it...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G: Slick, Speedy Phone Suffers From Bloatware

 

In a world where smartphone displays are getting more and more gargantuan, the 3.97-inch display on the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is refreshingly compact. Not everybody needs a 5.3-inch display on their phone (Galaxy Note, I'm looking at you!), and...

Smooth, fast performance ; HSPA+ 42 is fast ; Good camera

Cannot remove many preinstalled apps ; No Ice Cream Sandwich

The Galaxy S Blaze 4G has an appealing design and performs excellently, but the experience is marred by an abundance of bloatware--that you can't remove.

In the past year, Android smartphones have increasingly fallen into two distinct camps: large-screen phones with outsized specs and smaller phones with poor performance. The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G on T-Mobile tries to take a different path, allowing...

Good performance for this price range ; Crazy fast HSPA+ download speeds

Too much pre-loaded crapware ; Older version of Android

The Galaxy S is back and beefed up for T-Mobile's 42Mbps HSPA+ network, but is it enough of an upgrade?

This week the brand new T-mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G goes on sale with T-Mobile's own brand of 4G connectivity and a Qualcomm S3 dual-core processor under the hood. This device represents what was fantastic throughout 2011, what's going right...

You can grab the new Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G from T-Mobile right this second on their [online store for $150] after a $50 mail-in rebate and a 2-year agreement.

Samsung retreads some well-worn turf with the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile, a Galaxy S phone by design, but with much more power under the hood than the original, thanks to its 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, 1.3-megapixel...

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G offers a pretty 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, Android Gingerbread, a solid 5-megapixel camera, a speedy 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and T-Mobile's faster HSPA+ 42 speeds. We found call quality was also quite good

The Blaze 4G's promised data speeds didn't always deliver during tests, and the chassis looks a little plain

With the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, you're looking at a solid midrange Android smartphone that packs a punch, and has a reasonable initial price tag. T-Mobile customers wouldn't go wrong with the handset, especially if they don't want to pay top...

We're big fans of HSPA+ 42; even if it's not technically "next-generation 4G" the way LTE is, real-world speeds tend to match up nicely in both cases, even if LTE is still faster in ideal conditions. Both are blazing fast as far as we're concerned.

In typical fashion, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G exhibits the usual design characteristics akin to Samsung's stable – meaning it's all-plastic and very lightweight. Interestingly, it actually looks similar to the BlackBerry Torch 9860, because of the...

Compact design ; Peppy performance ; Great calling quality ; Above average battery life

Lackluster 720p video recording ; Running Gingerbread out of the box

Good things are still found in small packages. In fact, that’s essentially what we find with T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as it’s able to impress us in so many ways. To tell you the truth, we weren’t expecting a lot out of this one, especially...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, available exclusively on T-Mobile, is a mix of the classic Galaxy S and more recent Galaxy S II. As a proponent of 4-inch smartphones, the 3.97-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display fell right into my wheel house and I was...
