Review: Samsung Galaxy Prevail

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  6

Browser

The Prevail comes with the stock Android browser. It's a good browser, and running over Sprint's EVDO network, it performed well in most of my tests. I noticed a few data speed problems when the Prevail had a weak network connection, but otherwise the browser is just the same as any other Android 2.2 phone.

The Layar augmented reality "browser" is also on board, but it's not really meant for web browsing. It is used with the camera and augmented reality apps that overlay content on top of live video camera images. The problem is, there are no augmented reality apps included, so why is the Layar browser there? Weird.

Customize

The Prevail can be customized as much as any other stock Android device. Five home screens leaves plenty of room for users to modify the look and feel of the device. It doesn't offer any fancy themes or modes, such as what's available on the HTC Sense phones, but it offers enough to make most people happy.
