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.

The Samsung Galaxy Prevail is the latest entry level smartphone from Samsung, set to be released for Boost Mobile in the United States. Featuring a modest 800 MHz Qualcomm processor and Android 2.2, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail hopes to capture the lower...

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 ...

"HATE phone! Comes w/unwanted apps I cannot uninstall."

 

With that said, I love Boost Mobile's affordable plan(s). I have been a customer since 2010. The only thing that would make me leave Boost: not finding a phone that works well on Boost and is not programmed with apps I am forced to keep.

It still works after 2 years, and has had no significant tech problems.

This phone comes programmed w/very many apps that cannot be uninstalled or moved to a SD card. Therefore, there is hardly any memory to install apps that I want and forget about the updates.
