Review: Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE for Sprint

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  6  

The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE performs just as a $99 mid-range phone should. It gets most features just about right, falls short on some, and doesn't really excel at any.

In my mind, the biggest red flag was the laggy performance in the user interface that I saw. Slow software gets old really, really, fast and often left me frustrated and tapping my foot impatiently. With limited access to LTE, the slower data speeds I encountered along Sprint's not-so-super 3G super-highway left me longing for Wi-Fi, and the inconsistent phone calls had me asking my friends and family to repeat themselves too often.

But the camera works just fine, and the multimedia functions are as robust as any other Android smartphone. Add to those the working class grunt of the Android 4.0 messaging tools and you've got a decent little machine.

It might help the Victory's cause if it had perhaps a bit more personality, but I don't hear any victory marches ringing out for this phone.
