Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review


Maybe you've noticed, maybe you haven't, but the Galaxy S 4G no longer exists at T-Mobile. Just one year ago, it replaced the Vibrant -- the

Robust performance ; Long battery life ; Beautiful design ; Clear call quality

Bloatware galore ; Price

The Blaze 4G is a good handset that stops just short of greatness. Once it falls to a lower price, it'll be an excellent choice for those unwilling to splurge on top-shelf features.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review: The middle man


The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as the far too long name suggests, is yet another incarnation of the original Galaxy S. Sure, it has grown an extra CPU core, to go with its 42Mbps network connectivity, but at the end of the day, the newcomer packs a lot...

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixels) resolution ; Android OS v2.3.6 with TouchWiz 4 launcher ; 1.5 GHz Scorpion dual-core CPU,...

No dedicated camera button ; The screen is let down by its PenTile matrix ; It is March 2012. Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread out of the box does not cut it anymore ; Ridiculous amount of non-removable T-Mobile bloatware with zero functionality

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G packs enough functionality to keep every potential Android user, who thinks that a screen over 4" in size is too big happy. It is well built, fast, and pocket friendly. It's also got some powerful hardware that makes it...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (T-Mobile)


The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is an equally speedy alternative to the Galaxy S II if you're looking for a fast T-Mobile smartphone in a more manageable size.

Powerful dual-core processor. Fast HSPA+ 42 speeds. Comfortable size.

No HDMI out. Noticeable stippling on display.

The Blaze 4G shares some motion-activated controls with the Galaxy S II, such as the ability to flip over the phone to mute the ringer or any other sounds that are playing. There's also a tiny strip at the bottom of the home and app screens that allows...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G: Slick, Speedy Phone Suffers From Bloatware


In a world where smartphone displays are getting more and more gargantuan, the 3.97-inch display on the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is refreshingly compact. Not everybody needs a 5.3-inch display on their phone (Galaxy Note, I'm looking at you!), and...

Smooth, fast performance ; HSPA+ 42 is fast ; Good camera

Cannot remove many preinstalled apps ; No Ice Cream Sandwich

The Galaxy S Blaze 4G has an appealing design and performs excellently, but the experience is marred by an abundance of bloatware--that you can't remove.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review


In the past year, Android smartphones have increasingly fallen into two distinct camps: large-screen phones with outsized specs and smaller phones with poor performance. The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze...

Good performance for this price range ; Crazy fast HSPA+ download speeds

Too much pre-loaded crapware ; Older version of Android

It's not going to turn any heads — except for people who do double-takes when they realize it's not a BlackBerry

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (T-Mobile) review


Samsung retreads some well-worn turf with the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile, a Galaxy S phone by design, but with much more power under the hood than the original, thanks to its 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, 1.3-megapixel...

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G offers a pretty 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, Android Gingerbread, a solid 5-megapixel camera, a speedy 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and T-Mobile's faster HSPA+ 42 speeds. We found call quality was also quite good.

The Blaze 4G's promised data speeds didn't always deliver during tests, and the chassis looks a little plain.

With the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, you're looking at a solid midrange Android smartphone that packs a punch, and has a reasonable initial price tag. T-Mobile customers wouldn't go wrong with the handset, especially if they don't want to pay top...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Review


This week the brand new T-mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G goes on sale with T-Mobile's own brand of 4G connectivity and a Qualcomm S3 dual-core processor under the hood. This device represents what was fantastic throughout 2011, what's going right...

Here in the Galaxy S Blaze 4G you’ve got a step between the Galaxy S II line and the original Galaxy S line. If you’re looking to spend just a bit less than you’d otherwise be dropping on the hero Galaxy S II line here on T-Mobile, this is your winner....

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Review


In typical fashion, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G exhibits the usual design characteristics akin to Samsung's stable – meaning it's all-plastic and very lightweight. Interestingly, it actually looks similar to the BlackBerry Torch 9860, because of the...

Compact design ; Peppy performance ; Great calling quality ; Above average battery life

Lackluster 720p video recording ; Running Gingerbread out of the box

Good things are still found in small packages. In fact, that’s essentially what we find with T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as it’s able to impress us in so many ways. To tell you the truth, we weren’t expecting a lot out of this one, especially...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Review


The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, available exclusively on T-Mobile, is a mix of the classic Galaxy S and more recent Galaxy S II. As a proponent of 4-inch smartphones, the 3.97-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display fell right into my wheel house and I was...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Review: Blazing Fast


While it may look like another rehash of the old Galaxy S, under the hood the new Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G packs blistering speed, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and lightning fast 4G. Does the rest of the device measure up? We take an in-depth look.

Slim and light ; Good screen ; Great battery life ; Fast processor ; 4G

Lots of clutterware ; Below-average camera ; Slightly higher price than comparable devices on other carriers

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G makes for a fairly good Android phone. Is it worth your $150? I would give it a conditional yes. Of all the major carriers, T-Mobile probably has the scarcest options in terms of good Android devices. Compared...
