Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G review: Thumbs wanted
7 October 2012
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G adds a much desired hardware QWERTY keyboard to a package of specifications, which have been long tried and tested though not exactly in this combination. The dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset is one of the leggiest around, while the TouchWiz-ed Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich has proven to be a great combination in the Galaxy S III flagship.
Cons: No dedicated camera button, The screen is let down by its PenTile matrix, 5MP camera does not fit the rest of the hardware or the price tag, Large amount of non-removable T-Mobile bloatware with zero functionality, The smartphone is hardly a looker
Summary: For a mid-tier smartphone running Ice Cream Sandwich, the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G is no slacker. Its Snapdragon S4 allows for smooth and fast performance, and battery life is none too shabby. Sure, the 4-inch WVGA display isn't tops and the camera is underwhelming, but $150 doesn't buy you the stars. What it should buy you is a comfortable, reasonably fast device that fits in well with your texting and photo-taking habits.
Pros: Good everyday performance, Comfortable grip, Solid battery life
Conclusion: If you can somehow see through the boring design of the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G , you'll find a superb Android smartphone that manages to be a good device in the mid-range category. In this day and age, it seems that the sweet spot for mid-rangers tends to be at $100, and at $150 with a 2-year contract, some might think the Relay 4G to be overpriced.
Pros: Fantastic keyboard, Smooth performance
Cons: Boring design, Terrible photo & video capture
Excerpt: Smartphones with large touchscreens are sleek, but nothing beats the tactile feeling of having an actual keyboard. Fortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G combines the best of both worlds. Using a slide-out keyboard, this smartphone gives you a full five-row QWERTY keyboard, but don't let that fool you into thinking this is an old-style phone. The Relay uses the incredibly smooth and useable Android 4.0 system to surf the web and download great apps.
Pros: The slide-out keyboard offers a physical typing experience and gives more screen real estate to the phone.
Cons: Very few of the pre-installed apps are actually useful.
Excerpt: Surgiram detalhes sobre o novo integrante da Família Galaxy S da Samsung. O modelo que já havia mostrado as caras anteriormente como modelo SGH-T699, agora recebe o nome comercial de Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q , e embora a aparência do aparelho ainda seja um mistério, vazaram alguns detalhes sobre as suas especificações.
