Review: Samsung Galaxy Prevail
The Samsung Galaxy Prevail is a solid little phone. It performs well on all the benchmarks, such as calling, battery life and messaging capabilities. The hardware is perhaps a little vanilla-looking, but its good controls and nice feel make up for that.
It comes with bare-bones Android 2.2 Froyo, and in my book that's a good thing. Sure, it may not have the whiz-bang features of HTC's Sense or Motorola's MotoBlur, but that also means far less bloatware and annoyances. With the Prevail, it all just works. What it lacks in stock software can easily be assuaged by the Android Market.
Beyond the device itself, the Prevail's best feature is its price: $180 with no contract. You can buy it free and clear for less than two Franklins and you still get the benefit of Boost's CDMA (i.e., Sprint's) prepaid service. That's a win-win.
