Boost Mobile introduced today what it calls its first CDMA smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail. The Prevail is a teensy little Android smartphone that is sure to entice the pre-paid crowd.
The Prevail is a small, slab-style phone, and has a smallish (3.2-inch) touch display. It's not the thinnest handset ever, but it is small enough that it is comfortable to use, hold, and carry about. The display isn't the largest or most pixel-dense, but it looks good for what it is.
The shape is somewhat boxy, but the soft-touch paint job really feels good in the hand. The corners are far from sharp, but there's still enough girth to let you know that it is there.
The controls along the edges — volume toggle, power/lock key, etc., all worked well on the handful of units we tested at the event. They were easy to find and had good travel and feedback.
As for the user interface, the Prevail runs stock Android 2.2 Froyo. The Prevail runs an 800MHz processor, and felt very speedy. In the few moments that I spent playing with the phone, it felt zippy and fast, and I noticed no lag at all. All the typical user interface elements were there and worked flawlessly.
In sum, the Prevail is a decent little phone that is more than worth its $180 price tag and measly $50 voice/data plan. In other words, for the money, you can do a whole heckuva lot worse.
Hands On with the Samsung Galaxy Note8
Samsung is back with the Note8, a wholly reimagined handset when compared to the disastrous (and fire prone) Note7. This year's Note smartphone takes cues from Samsung's existing Galaxy S8 devices thanks to the Infinity Display with curved edges.
Review: Samsung Galaxy J7 for Boost Mobile
Samsung's mid-range Galaxy J7 finds solid footing among Boost Mobile's smartphone roster. This Android handset brings a lot to the table with a 5.5-inch screen, 13-megapixel camera, and Android 6 Marshmallow.
Hands-On: Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge
Samsung trotted out two versions of its flagship smartphone for 2015 and took them in a new direction with respect to design. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge boast the highest quality materials and build we've seen from Samsung.
Hands On with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+
Samsung's new flagship phablets are here and they are impressive. They adopt the high-quality design of Samsung's S6 smartphone and toss in a number of compelling new features to help give them their own identity.
Anyone know the answer to this?
But I don't get it.. I have an HTC Hero with an older processor and it has flash. Maybe this will change later on.
I will start off the mature discussion of this phone by saying
As a Boost customer, I'm actually excited about this baby...
