Samsung Galaxy Express (Aio Wireless)


The Samsung Galaxy Express is the cheapest LTE-enabled option on Aio Wireless, but it's a pretty dated Android smartphone.

4G LTE capability. Inexpensive. Reliable and consistent experience

Dated design and performance

Never heard of Aio Wireless? You're probably not alone. Aio is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that offers low-cost service plans that tap into AT&T's nationwide network. The catch, if you can even call it a catch, is limited phone selection...

Samsung Galaxy Express Review


When carriers offer a smartphone for free (or $1) on contract it often means that the device has some problems. It's usually a warning sign to steer clear. That's not always the case, though. Samsung's Galaxy Express on AT&T is one of those nice, cheap...

As powerful as a Galaxy S3 ; Compact, lightweight design ; Bright, colorful display ; Long battery life

Too many AT&T apps ; Low screen resolution ; Poor speaker quality

You get a decent display, comfortable and attractive design, good performance, and speedy 4G LTE.

Samsung Galaxy Express review: Jelly Bean Express


The Samsung Galaxy Express represents an interesting mix of features. The latest Jelly Bean flavor, the impressively fast processor, the LTE connectivity, the spectacular 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, and the Galaxy S III looks are all...

Quad-band GSM, 3G, and LTE support ; 21.1 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.5" 16M-color Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution ; Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX ; 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm...

No dedicated camera key ; Preinstalled video player lacks DivX video support ; Poor low-light camera performance ; WVGA resolution wears thin on the 4.5" screen

Throughout our examination of the I8730 Galaxy Express, we've touched again and again on the dual-core processor under the hood. We've seen quite a lot of Samsung devices with the latest of Android on comparable screen sizes, but it's really the Krait...

Samsung Galaxy Express ( AT&T)


Though the Samsung Galaxy Express looks uncannily like a junior-size GS3 , the handset is actually a midlevel phone with a bargain price.

The Samsung Galaxy Express runs on 4G LTE, has good call quality, and a decent 5-megapixel camera.

The Galaxy Express is preloaded with too much bloatware and its screen has a bluish hue at certain angles.

With its reasonable $100 price tag, AT&T's Galaxy Express' solid performance and respectable specs are a good deal -- but pass it up if you want a more powerful camera.

Samsung Galaxy Express Review


Lag-free smooth Android Jelly Bean experience, Spacious 4.5-inch display

Low-resolution screen, Camera is a compromise

Finally, we can confidently say the Galaxy Express is a very solid mid-range device. It comes with two compromises that you have to take into account. The first one that we are ready to forgive it is a 480x800-pixel screen which works out to a sub-par...

Samsung Galaxy Express I8730 Review


In a sea of Ice Cream Sandwich-powered phones, is Jelly Bean and the Samsung name enough to give the Galaxy Express I8730 an advantage?

Samsung Galaxy Express Review: First Look


"It's a great mid range phone. Size is just right for my hands and inside pocket. Good battery life. Your are paying alot less than S3 yet have most of S3 features, it's steal. Running on Jelly Bean is fast and fliud."

The Express is set to arrive in the UK sometime in the first half of the year, meaning that it could touch down once the likes of Three, O2, Vodafone and LIFE Mobile have joined the 4G party.

Samsung Galaxy Express review


Running on Android 4.1.2, the Galaxy Express boasts the kind of specs you'd expect from a modern middle-of-the-pack smartphone with a dual-core CPU, 4GB of onboard storage, a 4GB MicroSD included, and a passable display.

At the end of the day the only thing that really impressed us was the battery life, which just meant that it was able to frustrate us for longer before needing a recharge. Samsung has made some great phones, but the Galaxy Express is not one of them.
