Samsung Transform

 

At first glance, the Samsung Transform on ($150 after new two-year contract from Sprint) looks like the Samsung Epic 4G's younger brother (also on Sprint). Both phones sport a slide-out keyboard and a front-facing camera. But once you actually hold and...

Runs stock Android 2.1 ; Sprint ID useful for new smartphone owners

Unusable front-facing camera ; Limited storage

First time Android users will appreciate the Transform's, but experienced users should save their money for a more powerful phone

Samsung Transform (Sprint)

 

This Android phone changes personalities with a tap and features a comfy keyboard, but is it worth the price?

We like the idea behind the Transform--a smaller, less expensive Epic 4G with an interface you can easily personalize with apps. However, the Sprint ID packs take longer to download than we'd like, and then there's additional work involved. Plus,...

Samsung Transform (Sprint)

 

For a phone claiming to be transformative, we were certainly hoping for a roster of more unusual features in Sprint's new Samsung Transform. What we get instead is a very decent midrange Android smartphone with a medium-size touch screen, a slide-out...

The Samsung Transform has an attractive design with a front-facing camera. The phone is comfortable to hold and has excellent call quality.

The Samsung Transform's battery life is short, and Sprint IDs take minutes to load. Our model lacked a music store.

With midrange features, the Samsung Transform is a solid choice for an Android smartphone. Clear call quality is a bonus, but the Sprint ID profile service isn't for everyone.

Samsung Transform (Sprint)

 

The 3.5-inch, 320-by-480-pixel, glass capacitive LCD is standard for midrange Android phones. It wasn't the brightest or most colorful I've tested, but it looked good. Dialing numbers elicited haptic feedback from the panel, but it was a sluggish...

Punchy voice quality. Sublime QWERTY keyboard. Useful Sprint ID customizations

Somewhat sluggish. Short battery life. Heavy. Poor voice dialing

The Samsung Transform features Sprint's nifty new ID interface, but don't expect the performance of a high-end Android phone here.

Samsung Transform Review

 

When the Samsung Transform was initially leaked it was postulated that the device would be another Galaxy S variant, possibly an all-touch device to go along with the Epic 4G. However, it transformed into a mid-range Android device with a side-sliding...

Samsung Transform raises the bar for mid-range features

 

Samsung's Android phone sports a great keyboard, but has some bugs Fashioned after the Samsung Epic 4G (*Est. $150 with contract), the Samsung Transform serves as a cheaper mid-range device. "It fits nicely into a pocket, but you probably won't forget...

Excellent physical keyboard, front-facing camera

Slow to respond at times, adequate (but not great) screen

Samsung Transform Review

 

The Samsung Epic 4G has been a big hit for Sprints high end users but to expand their market Sprint has released the Samsung Transform. The Samsung Transform is the newest addition to Sprints lineup featuring Android 2.1 two cameras and Sprint ID....

Overall the Sprint Samsung Transform is an average phone. Aiming for the mid-tier market, the Samsung Transform does have the features, but to compete with the higher end phones, the Transform does not have a chance. With the still buggy Sprint ID...

Sprint Samsung Transform review

 

A surprisingly decent entry-level Android phone Take the Epic 4G, slim it down and slow it down a tad, and you've got the mid-level Samsung Transform on Sprint. Hang on, hang on. Keep reading. That's ...

Just know what you're getting: A mid-level Android phone that should do you just fine if you're looking to get into the Google ecosystem -- but one that won't be getting any faster with age.

Samsung Transform Review

 

It is available now for $150 with a new two-year service contract, and after a $100 mail-in rebate

Excellent call quality ; Very good battery life ; Excellent keyboard ; Google Maps Navigation is solid and a pleasure to use

Somewhat thicker and heavier than comparable phones ; Barely adequate camera with poor quality zoom ; Underwhelming external speaker ; No bundled microSD memory card

The Transform is a good choice for someone who is more phone-centric, who talks (and texts) a lot, and needs excellent voice quality and a great keyboard. If you want a media powerhouse, though, the Transform probably isn't the device for you

Review: Samsung Transform for Sprint review

 

The Samsung Transform is an Android-powered smartphone for Sprint that offers a reasonably display and a full QWERTY keyboard, but at a price that's a bit more friendly than the company's Epic 4G flagship. Todd tests it out for us in this review.
