Review: Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE for Boost Mobile
The Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE offers a lot of value for the dollar. It costs $130, which is higher than the $49 - $99 price points for most Boost phones, but far less than today's flagships, which Boost sells at full price of $450 - $600. That $130 gets you an attractive handset that makes quality calls, offers solid network performance, and has just enough battery life for most people.
Samsung's TouchWiz user interface still feels heavy-handed, but it offers a lot of flexibility throughout. For example, the extra options in the phone app are a nice touch. The messaging and media apps run the norm, but I wish the Snapdragon 410 processor provided a bit more horsepower.
The camera held up better than I expected it to for this class of device. It's not going to help you win any photography awards, but it does well enough for most daily photography needs.

In short, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE is worth a look if you want a good all-around phone that won't break the bank.
