Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review
7 January 2014
Summary: 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 4G on T-Mobile tries to take a different path, allowing users who aren't looking for the biggest and fastest to still get a phone that has something better than budget-level performance and specs.
Pros: Good performance for this price range, Crazy fast HSPA+ download speeds
Cons: Too much pre-loaded crapware, Older version of Android
Conclusion: The HTC Sensation 4G like the HTC One S, packs a 4.3-inch qHD resolution display. It features a slower 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, but features an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. The shortfalls of the Sensation 4G are its smaller 1520 mAh battery and VGA-resolution front-facing camera. Like the Blaze 4G, the Sensation 4G runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Summary: If you're looking to get performance out of your phone without breaking the bank then the Samsung Blaze 4G is the phone for you. It's basically the Samsung Galaxy S II wrapped up in a smaller, more...
Review of the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (T-Mobile)
31 March 2012
Conclusion: The Galaxy S Blaze 4G has a lot going for it—near perfect ergonomics, beautiful display, very fast network speeds and a very nice camera. And at $119.99, there's no question it's a solid device that is an excellent choice for many purchasers. I really wish they had stepped back the processor in favor of more battery life and sped up that camera. You can decide how important those issues are to you.
Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (T-Mobile) smartphone review
29 March 2012
Summary: One glance at the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile and you might think that Samsung kidnapped some of RIM's industrial designers before it created this smartphone. Visual similarities to the two and a half year old BlackBerry Bold 9700 aside, the Galaxy S Blaze 4G packs thoroughly modern features under its skin, including a very fast dual-core processor and support for T-Mobile's speedy 42Mbps HSPA+ network.
Pros: Fast performance, great size, fast data when available
Cons: Questionable display, loads of pre-installed apps
Conclusion: 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 relatively future proof. The smartphone however, is far from perfect. Its Super AMOLED screen has remained in 2010.
Cons: 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
