Sprint ID Samsung Transform Sanyo Zio LG Optimus S Ravine  

The Samsung Transform is the most plain of the new Android bunch, but it's also the most powerful, with the faster, 800 MHz processor. This didn't exactly translate into speedy performance, in my hands on time. I saw some significant lag on the pre-release version I got to handle. The Sprint ID interface added some interesting features, and the branded ID Packs have a lot of potential, but the interface changes slowly. Plus, I encountered some stalling and long lag times on the interface, as you can see in the hands-on video I attached to the Sprint ID tab.

The Samsung Transform is still a nice piece of hardware. The keyboard is large and accommodating, with big keys and a lot of space. The phone also features a front-facing camera. Unlike the more powerful Samsung Epic 4G, the Transform won't use Sprint's WiMAX network, so even Sprint reps seemed skeptical about using this phone for video conferencing, at least over the data network instead of Wi-Fi. But the camera is there, and for self-portraits at least, it should prove useful.
