Samsung Intercept Review
24 September 2010
Excerpt: Thinking about purchasing the Samsung Intercept? While the phone does have some positives going for it there are some performance issues. Read our full review to find out if this is the device for you.
Summary: Using the
was a big drop down for me after using such high-end models as the Samsung Captivate. But something happened as I talked with others about this model. Many people remarked on just how much better ithe screen was than their current mobiles. And to be true, a 3-inch
with nice looking icons looks a lot better than some of the interfaces found in feature phones today.
The other aspect was the size of the Intercept and the keyboard.
Pros: Good keyboard, Loads of bundled software
Cons: Problems with buttons on front, A touch large
Conclusion: The Samsung Intercept offers a newer version of the Android OS and loses the excessive version of TouchWiz found on the Samsung Moment. Beyond that, the Intercept isn't an upgrade at all. In fact, the Moment has a better display and an equal camera. The Intercept's raison d'etre is to entice budget conscious buyers and feature phone owners to move up to Android. And it is indeed a solid entry/ mid-level smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard and the power of Android 2.1.
Pros: Android 2.1 and a hardware keyboard., Android OS 2.1 with all the Google goodies. Solid build and decent looks.
Cons: Bland display, oddball resolution., Display is grainy and not super touch responsive. Odd resolution. Sometimes bogs down.
Summary: For consumers looking to upgrade from a feature phone and dip their toes into the Android waters, the Samsung Intercept is a decent choice. Just remember that, as a $99 device, it's not going to have any of the bells and whistles of, say, the $199 Evo 4G. Among Android phones in this price range with slider designs, we actually prefer the Motorola Devour ($79), which has a slightly larger and higher-res screen and better camcorder (despite it's older 1.6 OS).
Pros: Solid slider design, Comfortable keyboard, Good battery life, Inexpensive
Cons: Small screen with low resolution, Doesn't support EV-DO Rev A, Awkward keyboard layout
