Review: Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G for MetroPCS
The Attain 4G is stuffed full of MetroPCS applications. Some include: M Studio, MetroNavigation, Metro411, MetroWeb, MyMetro, and VirtualCard. Some of these can be deleted, some cannot. There's still enough space left on the Attain for you to download your own applications.Bluetooth
The Attain 4G supports mono and stereo Bluetooth headsets. I had no trouble pairing with either. Sound quality through mono headphones made using them nearly worthless. I mean, with the phone all the way up and the headset all the way up, you might be able to hear conversations, but I doubt it. Calls routed through my car were also terrible. The Attain also connects with computers and/or other phones for pushing files around.Clock
The Attain 4G offers the standard Android clock on the lock screen, which is visible when the device is first woken from sleep. It's a nice, large digital read-out that's easily visible everywhere except under direct sunlight. It can't be customized, though.

The Attain 4G includes Google Maps and MetroNavigation. Google Maps and its Navigation and Places features make for a powerful set of tools when it comes to routing directions and discovering nearby points of interest. The trifecta of these applications means there's no excuse to get lost nor to find a great place for dinner. Of course, its effectiveness is dependent on a strong network connection. The Attain 4G's GPS radio performed very well in most circumstances, and was able to pinpoint my location to within 15-25 feet most of the time.
