Review: Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile
The calling and contacts applications on the Blaze don't appear to make any significant changes over previous Samsung Android phones. The features work identically to most recent phones we've seen from Samsung. The software dialpad pops up when the phone button is pressed. From there, it's easy to access the call log, favorites, and the main contact list.
The Blaze includes the Samsung Buddies Now home screen widget. It lets you populate home screen panels with links to up to nine buddies. If you want to look at a buddy's entire contact card, simply press their face and you'll be taken into the contact application. This app can be used instead of setting a handful of contact shortcuts to the home screen.
