Review: Samsung Galaxy Prevail
The Prevail runs a stock version of Android 2.2.2. Aside from the presence of Boost-branded apps and content, it appears to be completely unmolested Android.
The Prevail has five home screens that users can customize with application shortcuts, widgets, and so on. A number of Boost apps are on the various screens out of the box, but they can be tossed if you don't want them there.
One thing I saw for the first time was a "Welcome to Android" widget. Basically, it's an instructional widget that teaches users new to Android how to operate and use the home screens. After running through it once, I removed it from the home screen. Android virgins might find it helpful.

The rest of the system performs just as you'd expect Android 2.2 to perform. The main menu has a simple grid with the apps listed in alphabetical order. There is no "list" view. To alter most settings, press the menu button below the display, which brings up all the tools needed to adjust the Prevail's behavior.
How does the Prevail's 800MHz processor handle Android 2.2? Just fine. The system responded quickly to all actions, and it never stalled out or crashed on me. Screens transitioned smoothly and applications launched swiftly.
