Review: Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G for MetroPCS

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  5  

The Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G is a decent little phone. It does most things well, though it stumbles badly in a couple of places. The hardware works very well and still manages to look modern. The screen is good and battery life is even better.

The Attain 4G offers a good software experience with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has just as many tools as today's leading devices, and delivers great images and video from the camera.

However, I have serious concerns about the Attain 4G's network performance. Even under strong coverage, the device had a hard time connecting to and using the network properly. Voice quality was terrible, and the Attain was prone to dropping calls more often than any other phone I've tested in recent memory.

If your a fan of pre-paid services and have solid MetroPCS coverage where you live, the Attain 4G could be worth considering if you're a heavy data user and don't care much for voice performance, but I'd only buy this device if MetroPCS's LTE network is available in your area.
