Samsung Admire SCH-r720 (red, MetroPCS)

 

The Samsung Admire marks another step in Android's continued march onto phones from prepaid carriers. Made for MetroPCS, the Admire isn't long on features, but it offers more than enough to keep you occupied for both a little play and some work. The...

The Samsung Admire has a simple, straightforward design with enough features to keep you busy and entertained. We appreciate the support for the Gingerbread OS and the access to MetroPCS' new Rhapsody Unlimited Music service

The Samsung Admire had variable call quality with low volume and occasional audio cutouts. We had problems with the speakerphone in particular

The Samsung Admire offers the accessible design and functional feature set that you'd expect from a starter Android phone, but call quality wasn't up to our standards.

Samsung R720 review

 

There's very little to fault with the Samsung R720. Attractive and packing decent components, it offers excellent value for a desktop-replacement laptop. Its 3D graphics performance is its only real weak spot, but it still offers enough oomph to keep...

Looks great for such a large laptop ; Excellent keyboard

3D graphics performance isn't particularly brilliant

Conclusion The Samsung R720 is a great-looking desktop-replacement laptop with a good all-round specification. It's not quite in the same league as the similar Toshiba Satellite L550-113, but it's about £100 cheaper and the only real difference is its...

You might not be able to tell from the picture, but Samsung's R720 is one seriously big laptop. If you're looking for something portable, there are many better choices available.

Samsung's latest desktop replacement has a huge, high-resolution 17.3in display - and a tiny, tiny price tag

Expert review by:

Samsung R720 17.3in notebook

 

Great value 17in laptop, that's not averse to a bit of light gaming. Pity there's no 802.11n Wi-Fi though.

The 17.3in screen looks good and, despite Samsung's decision to go with a Pentium Dual Core processor, the R720 returned some decent benchmark scores. Perhaps most surprising was the 3D performance afforded by the Radeon HD 4330 graphics card. Yet...

Samsung - R720

 

With a price tag of £599, Samsung's R720 sits in the budget desktop replacement sector. Going by looks alone, though, it certainly doesn't come across as being a budget laptop. Open up the lid and you're ...

At £599, the Samsung R720 packs in a lot. Sure, the Pentium Dual Core processor might put some people off, but the fact is it really doesn't impact performance too much. And although the Radeon HD 4330 graphics card won't be up to high-resolution,...

"Great phone."

 

I like the phone. It is laggy at times, and usually doesnt load youtube videos more than halfway, but this is probably based on the Metro network in my area. Doesnt load any faster with wifi on which is a huge downfall, and wifi on takes a toll on...

Battery life

Can be laggy at times.

"Good smartphone that won't break the bank! Great value!"

 

This is my first smartphone, overall I like it. Although there is the downside of low internal memory, for $49 I really can't complain. This is an excellent deal. If you're looking for an inexpensive yet decent smart phone from Metro PCS, I'd recommend...

-Decent Processor

-Although it's a good camera, it has no flash

"Works for me"

 

Most of the negatives I've read about this phone don't exist for me, such as battery life. Sure it ain't greatest, but I get better life than 3 hours. I have to charge it once a day. No deal breaker. Then again, I use the internet lightly because I am...

It does what I need it to do, Email, Facebook, Twitter. The voice recognition works pretty well. I was impressed.

Not many, really. Speed is a little bit slow, but that is to be expected in a low end Android. But, when connected to a wifi network, speed is decent.
