Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G Review: Affordable LTE, but Bundled With Bloatware


The Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G, which debuted at CES 2012, is a contract-free smartphone that runs on MetroPCS's 4G LTE network. At $250 without a contract (as of January 30, 2012), the Attain is one of the most budget-friendly LTE phones currently...

LTE without a contract ; Camera performs well outdoors

Specs can feel a bit outdated ; Lots of bloatware

The Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G suffers from too much bloatware and dated specs, but it's still one of the best phones in MetroPCS's lineup.

Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G (MetroPCS)


MetroPCS may be the nation's fifth-largest carrier, but it plays in its own league. That's a fact I can appreciate when comparing its no-contract, 4G LTE phones to those on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint (T-Mobile has 4G, but not yet the LTE standard.) The...

The Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G is an eye-catching Android 2.3 device that runs on MetroPCS' 4G LTE network. The camera took admirable outdoor shots, and the smartphone won't break the bank

Unfortunately, the network isn't always the fastest or most reliable. Call quality was a mixed bag

Samsung's middle-of-the-road Galaxy Attain 4G has a nice price and attractive design for MetroPCS customers; but those seeking true LTE speeds should choose a different carrier.

"Don't waste your time and moeny!"


Cute little phone, good processor speed

Awfull! Battery will not last more than 2 hrs, even though the phone is not being used! I purchased it 1 week ago and guess what? I'm returning it as soon as the MetroPCS store opens Monday.

"Biggest Disappointing Rip-Off EVER!!"


The purpose of writing this review is to get the REAL TRUTH out there!! When shopping for new phone service, I went to MetroPCS because I thought I'd get a deal and save money (I was wrong). I asked about the battery life for the Samsung Galaxy Attain...

Has a wide-array of user features, apps, capabilities.

The battery life is HORRIBLE, The MetroPCS network and customer service are remarkably horrible, I spent $347 for a new phone and service. This is about $100 more than the latest iPhone through AT&T or Verizon.

"Unlimited Everything on a very capable phone = AWESOME"


This is a great phone if you're like me... Not worried about having the latest and greatest phone, because you have dedicated equipment for everything.

4G (Not blazing, but fast enough to STREAM good quality video), Dual Camera , Fully customizable...

Browsers crash(Dolphin and MetroWeb - Firefox has been stable but it's slower), Camera quality in low light or movement. Video quality.

"Upgraded from Samsung Admire to Attain, it's amazing!"


So I upgraded from the Admire to the Attain 4G. I was so sick (even in Boston) of Facebook being so slow and boy was it worth it!I did a lot of research and decided to get the Attain since I like the 3.5" screen size and the phone is so sexy! I just...

4G Coverage, Screen brightness & flow, different android gingerbread theme, back&front camera, really fast phone with no lag, 7 home screen pages, wallpaper doesn't stretch, lock screen is nice, descent battery life, can use internet while on phon

Change from Android keyboard to Samsung keyboard? Which will take a little getting used to, but nothing to be so crazy angry about.
