Review: Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G for MetroPCS
The Attain 4G uses the stock Google calling and contacts applications. From the home screen, press the phone icon and the dialer pops open, plus the usual options. The Attain offers haptic feedback when you dial numbers on the touch display. Call features include mute, speakerphone, add a line, etc.
The Attain 4G will import all of your Google and Exchange contacts if you have them. Adding Facebook friends is optional. Contacts can hold innumerable phone numbers, email addresses, notes, and so on. The Attain doesn't have any nifty contacts or calling widgets for the home screen; only the stock tools are available.
