Review: Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile
The Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G is a really solid effort from the Korean smartphone maker. As previously mentioned, it doesn't aim all that high, but it hits the mark where it counts. Aside from perhaps the weak earpiece and speakerphone, there's almost nothing about the device that falls short.
The hardware is a great compromise in terms of screen size vs. usability. It connects well to T-Mobile's network and runs for at least a day. The system software is flexible and leaves plenty of room for personalization. It has plenty of power and speed, and media apps all do a solid job of keeping you entertained when you're not busy scheduling soccer games and happy hours.
In a world full of smartphone extremes, the Blaze strikes a good balance, and in so doing, finds an identity all its own.
