Samsung Transform Ultra (Sprint)


It's rare for parent carrier Sprint to show a handset after one of its MVNOs, but that's exactly the order of arrival for the Samsung Transform Ultra, which first debuted on Boost Mobile in early October, about three weeks before the handset became...

Like its twin on Boost Mobile, the Samsung Transform Ultra has an uncluttered Android Gingerbread interface, a front-facing camera, and a fair price tag

The keyboard on the Samsung Transform Ultra could rise a little higher, and camera quality could be improved

Folks looking for a phone with a QWERTY keyboard will find in the Samsung Transform Ultra a reliable midtier device, though $20 more could nab you an even better phone.

Samsung Transform Ultra (Boost Mobile)


When Sprint first introduced the Samsung Transform a little over a year ago at fall CTIA 2010, the most remarkable thing about the Android QWERTY slider was Sprint ID, the carrier's experimental attempt to let people pick thematic startup profiles for...

The uncluttered Samsung Transform Ultra has a pleasing design, a front-facing camera, and runs on Android Gingerbread 2.3. It also carries Mobile ID, which some people may appreciate

As far as keyboards go, the Samsung Transform Ultra's is a little flat. Its camera quality is also pretty poor

The Samsung Transform Ultra is a worthy QWERTY handset to join Boost Mobile's Android lineup. Mobile ID offers something different, but not everyone will want it.

Samsung Transform Ultra (Boost Mobile)


The Ultra is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 MSM8655 processor. Benchmark scores can't touch those of the latest dual-core Android devices, but Boost doesn't carry any of those. This phone should be just fine for most needs aside from very...

Solid performance. Fantastic plan pricing

Low-resolution screen. Mediocre voice quality

The Samsung Transform Ultra gives Boost Mobile users a powerful, keyboarded Android smartphone to take advantage of the carrier's inexpensive plan pricing.

Samsung Transform Ultra Review


We first saw the Samsung Transform Ultra debut on Sprint's Boost pre-paid network, but now the midrange handset has made its way to the post-paid side of the business. The specs remain the same - notably a 1GHz Snapdragon S2 processor, 3.5” display and...

Good build quality ; Physical keyboard ; Smooth performance

Spacebar is a bit flimsy ; We’d have preferred a higher resolution display

Samsung has done a good filling the mid-range Android slot in Sprint’s lineup, and the Transform Ultra is a worthy successor to the Transform. It does not set out to make any radical changes, just offer better overall performance than its predecessor....

Samsung Transform Ultra will arrive on Sprint for $80


Samsung are all set to unleash the Transform Ultra on the Sprint network. It will pack interesting features such as a 1GHz processor, a 3.5-inch HVGA display screen, about 512MB RAM and 2GB storage and Android Gingerbread to put it all to good use. The...

Giving a Boost to Smaller Carriers - Samsung Transform Ultra Review


The Transform Ultra is Boost Mobile's first ever Gingerbread powered smartphone. Following on the heels of the Samsung Galaxy Prevail, the Transform Ultra is another Android device manufactured by Samsung. It's more of a redone version of the original...

Overall the Samsung Transform Ultra easily ranks in as an 'Average' level smartphone for the entry to mid-level market. The market that it's aiming for is still relatively lucrative and while there are some competitive smartphones in the market, the...

"Poor support from Boost and Samsung"


Don't buy this phone. It fails with overheat, burnout, and poor support. I am sending it back a 3rd time in only 5 months.

Android, small, works when it works.

Overheat problem, failure to repair, low quality camera and screen. Iffy reception. Sprint ID is kinda dumb.
