samsung_galaxy_prevail

Samsung Galaxy Prevail is mid range Android device consisting of feature set that is impressive enough for the phone in this price array. Running on Qualcomm 800 MHz processor, 382 MB RAM and display resolution of 320×480, this phone is sensible choice. There is no eye opener attribute as such, but still it’s worth buying this stuff. The phone is quite light weight (only “3.9 oz”) and is comprised of small form factor with black finish.

  • Available on Boost Mobile on nationwide Sprint Network, one of the best mobile phone service providers.

Cons

  • Image or picture quality of display not that good due to low screen resolution.
  • Since screen size is smaller (only 3.2 inch), the pop out keyboard is little cramped.
  • Phone response is not that fast i.e. if you tap a key or launch an application, then it takes pretty sometime for application to get launch actually.
  • Inbuilt keyboard sensitivity not that good, in the sense that it sometimes recognizes one key taps as two.
