Review: Samsung Galaxy Prevail
The Prevail comes with support for multiple Exchange accounts, Gmail, POP3 and IMAP4 email from just about every vendor there is. For the most part, all it takes is a username and a password to sign up. Both Exchange and Gmail will also marry your contacts and calendar to the Prevail, which is convenient.
The Gmail application is the most powerful of the email clients. It is so natively entwined with the way that Gmail works online that you hardly feel like you're using it on a phone.
The stock SMS/MMS application works well, and displays messages threaded in a conversation style. On the instant messaging side of the coin, Google Talk is built in, but nothing else. If you need access to Yahoo, AIM, or Windows Live, you're going to have to search the Android Market.

Social networking appears to be the forgotten red-headed stepchild on the Prevail. First, Facebook isn't installed. This is a no-brainer. It should be there, end of story. The official Twitter application isn't installed, either, but Twitroyd is. Twitroyd is OK, but I much prefer the official Twitter for Android application.
What does the Prevail have on board instead of legit social networking software? Hookt. Hookt is a dating, chatting, flirting application that requires you to individually scan through 45 (FORTY-FIVE!!!) pages of terms and conditions before you can use it. Preposterous.
