Review: Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G for T-Mobile
The Relay has a 4.0-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, and uses Samsung's Super AMOLED technology. I was able to see far more individual pixels than I'd like, given the screen's size and resolution. I'd go so far as to call it sub-par when compared directly to other Samsung devices using similar screens. Pixels or not, it is plenty bright and is clearly viewable when outdoors.
The Relay maintained a solid connection to T-Mobile's network during my review period. In both strong and weak coverage areas, it remained connected and able to make calls and surf the web. During my tests, the Relay never dropped a call, but it missed several and wasn't consistent at connecting calls on the first attempt. Though data always worked, it was noticeably slower in areas with poor coverage.
The Relay is an excellent voice phone. The quality of calls was quite good. I found them to be clear of noise, and pleasing in tone. The earpiece volume is amazingly loud. I was able to clearly hear calls despite some really loud music and raucous conversation in the background. Ringtones and alerts were loud enough to be heard in most environments. The vibrate alert is excellent.

The Relay's battery does pretty well. It makes it through an entire day with no problem, and that's about all I really need from a smartphone these days. There was consistently enough battery power left so that I wasn't worried about running out before bedtime. You're safe from 7AM to 11PM, no doubt, and probably until the next morning, but not much beyond that.
