Excerpt: The Samsung Indulge may seem like a run of the mill smartphone from MetroPCS, but the interesting fact is that it is the first ever 4G LTE smartphone to be released. While Verizon works on advertising their 4G LTE smartphones, MetroPCS has gone and released...
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Indulge is the first 4G LTE Android smartphone available on the market. That means that while all of Verizon’s customers are waiting for 4G, you prepaid MetroPCS customers can already enjoy all of the 4G good-ness you want. Not bad for the fifth largest wireless carrier in the United States. The Indulge is a fantastic device, even without the 4G speeds, but LTE just makes it that much better. MetroPCS is rapidly expanding their 4G network.
Pros: Good call quality, Useable QWERTY keyboard
Cons: MetroPCS’ 4G LTE is much slower than Verizon’s 4G LTE, Display is low quality and looks washed-out, Plastic construction feels cheap and flimsy
Summary: For those who want 4G service but hate being locked into an expensive two-year contract, the $399 Samsung Indulge on MetroPCS' network is worth a look: Not only do you get next-gen data speeds, you're paying a lot less than you would with the major carriers over two years. Unfortunately, you'll have to put up with a low-resolution display and short battery life. And, when you're not in range of MetroPCS' 4G network, you'll get 2G data speeds. So is the Indulge worth it?
