Review: Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G for MetroPCS

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  4  

The Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G mostly succeeds. It is a solid little phone that gets nearly every feature right. The hardware, though somewhat thick, is solid and easy to use. I wish the display were better (and bigger, for that matter), but it really is a good phone for the price. The Admire passes the signal, calling, and battery tests with above-average marks for a MetroPCS device.

The only significant flaw I can find is the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. It’s old and outdated. Google offers a much-improved version of Android, you just won’t find it here. Android 2.3 works, no doubt, but even pre-paid smartphone customers deserve a more capable platform. That said, the software the Admire has performs just fine.

For those with a limited budget, the Admire offers a lot for its $170 price tag. Such a phone can't deliver everything, but the Admire 4G comes pretty close.
