  • 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.

Samsung Admire SCH-r720

CNET
16 August 2011
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: The Samsung Admire had variable call quality with low volume and occasional audio cutouts. We had problems with the speakerphone in particular.

Samsung Vitality SCH-r720 (Cricket Wireless)

CNET
9 August 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Vitality is a competitive midrange Android smartphone that complements Muve Music's potential.
  • Pros: The Samsung Vitality is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread device with a good size touch screen and Cricket's signature Muve Music music-access plan.
  • Cons: Low audio and speakerphone volume make it harder to talk. The Muve Music microSD card leaves little space for photos and video. Battery life is also rather poor.
