alteredstate's review of the Samsung Galaxy Prevail / Precedent

Prevail...or Pre-Beta?

I got this phone for my girlfriend to replace her LG Optimus V. The LG was unable to send text messages from certain locations. Knowing the Prevail was on the same network, I took a chance and it paid off. Sort of. The phone did prove to be able to send and receive messages in locations the Optimus V was not. Unfortunately as soon as we paired her bluetooth the problems began. The phone became extremely slow and started freezing up. Had to pull the battery. Once the bluetooth was turned off it got better. Not sure if the bluetooth was the only issue, but until this is addressed and an official fix is provided, I would wait on this phone if you need to use a bluetooth. If no bluetooth, it might be fine for you now. Maybe.

Pros:
Decent call quality

Works where another comparable Android would not

Decent camera with adequate lighting (2 vs 3 mega-pixels for a cell phone is irrelevant unless your taking pictures for National Geographic or something)

Cons:
Freezes with bluetooth

Too little internal memory

Unfortunately as soon as we paired her bluetooth the problems began. The phone became extremely slow and started freezing up. Had to pull the battery often. Once the bluetooth was turned off it got better. *** UPDATE *** Phone eventually became practically unusable even without Bluetooth. This is a really bad phone even for entry level and I would suggest a different phone.
