  • Excerpt: The Samsung Vitality combines smartphone features such as email, internet access and easy data transfer with a new music service, a 3.2MP camera and video recording capability. These features make the Samsung prepaid cell phone the best on the market if you're looking for top-of-the-line functionality with zero service-plan commitment. The Samsung Vitality is a touchscreen phone with shiny cherry casing.
  • Pros: This pay-as-you-go smartphone has oodles of high-tech features and exceptional access to apps.
  • Cons: Music, internet, email and games makes this phone more expensive than basic prepaid models.

Samsung Vitality (Cricket Wireless)

PC Magazine
22 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The Samsung Vitality ($149.99 direct) is essentially the same phone as the Samsung Admire ($99, 3 stars) we reviewed on MetroPCS. That means it should be a decent, entry-level smartphone for users looking to save money with an inexpensive plan on Cricket Wireless. The Vitality features a 3.5-inch, 320-by-480-pixel glass capacitive touch screen, which is pretty standard resolution for lower-end smartphones.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Admire is a decent, midrange Android smartphone for taking advantage of the inexpensive monthly plans on MetroPCS, but there are better options available.
  • Pros: Runs Android 2.3. Inexpensive monthly plans.
  • Cons: Mediocre call quality. No 3G (or 4G). Low-quality camera.

  • Conclusion: Mnie jednak najbardziej uwiodła kultura pracy tego notebooka. Jest idealnie cichy i prawie w ogóle nie wytwarza ciepła, dzięki czemu komfort pracy na R720 należy do bardzo wysokiego. Nie zmienia to jednak faktu, że Samsung R720 jest laptopem ze średniej półki, który na pewno nie zawiedzie swojego właściciela.
