Samsung Prevail


In the years since the first Android device debuted, we've seen dozens of forgettable handsets running Google's now-ubiquitous software. The Samsung Prevail would fall into that category, too – were it not for some tempting pricing. It costs $180 with...

Samsung Galaxy Prevail (Boost Mobile)


The Samsung Galaxy Prevail has an elegant design and a surprisingly decent camera. It's eligible for Boost Mobile's reduced-rate plan.

Boost Mobile turned off the Prevail's Android 2.2 hot-spot capabilities. Also, call quality could be better.

The Samsung Galaxy Prevail marries sophistication with good value to become Boost Mobile's best smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Prevail (Boost Mobile)


The Prevail runs a mostly stock Android build, without a manufacturer overlay. The phone syncs e-mail, calendars, and contacts for Gmail and Microsoft Exchange accounts, and works with many other popular e-mail accounts. Android Market offers access to...

Good set of features and performance for the price. Fantastic plan pricing. Free, built-in TeleNav GPS. Responsive UI (given the lower-end hardware). Good looking

Limited video codec support. Hardware not up to par with the latest Android devices. Screen is a little cramped for typing. Poor video camera quality

A worthy competitor to the LG Optimus line, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail gives Boost Mobile users a lot of Android-powered goodness for their buck.

Overall the Samsung Galaxy Prevail is a great little addition to Boost Mobile's line up and a great entry level smartphone for customers looking for a cheap smartphone. Like the LG Optimus C, it is a bit late to the market, and with no real...

Review: Samsung Galaxy Prevail (Boost Mobile) review


The Samsung Galaxy Prevail for Boost Mobile is the first Android smartphone to utilize Boost's CDMA 3G network (provided by Sprint). Dan Seifert tests it out for us in this review.

Android 2.2 Froyo ecosystem, good battery life, decent still photos

Samsung Galaxy Prevail Review Part 2 | PhoneDog


The Samsung Prevail may not be the most interesting device around, but it's a big deal for Boost Mobile customers who've long been waiting for a decent Android smartphone to call their own. The specs on this one are pretty standard: 800 MHz ...

"Worked Great at first"


Love the phone at first, by now I HATE this hunk of trash!

Easy to use

To many pointless apps that pretty much do that same thing installed that take up space. Major problem with charging phone. Even when phone is not plugged in a charger, it will still say its charging. Which runs out the battery even faster.

Internet, email, Office, call and voice clairty. The GPS is outstanding and the camera provides very good pictures.
