    This review is from: Samsung T959 Galaxy S Vibrant 4G Unlocked Phone with Android OS, 5 MP Camera, GPS and Wi-Fi – Unlocked Phone – US Warranty – Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    This is an amazing phone! I purchased this to replace my Blackberry 9700 because it was starting to act crazy. It got to the point where the phone would freeze when a call came through only to unfreeze when the caller hung up. Finally fed up I chose to get this device. Originally I was not interested in this phone because I was still scarred from the G1 experience and wanted nothing more to do with Android. After my friends found out I was intensely looking into the HTC HD7 they worked diligently to change my mind and steer me back to Android. This smartphone does everything and more. I will be as detailed as possible about this device.

    Packaging

    When I received the package I found that it was very well put together. The box, of course, was open because the dealer needed to remove the sim card and to unlock the phone. Otherwise the phone was pristine and looked like I had ordered it from Tmobile. The items that were included was the phone, travel charger extender, data wire, battery, 16 GB micro sd card, Samsung premium in-ear earphones, and the manuals. One thing I did not like about the charger was that there is not a wire attached to the travel portion so you have to always use the data cable to charge the phone. This looks like it’s the norm for this line of phones, so no quality loss on behalf of the dealer, just simply Samsung’s poor designing. The back of the phone is a little flimsier than I would like, but that’s all opinion. The weight of the phone is not heavy at all but is so sturdy that one would think that a metal back would make it a little classier. I have the Samsung Behold as well, much cheaper than this phone, and it has a really nice metal-like back on it. Overall, however, the packaging was very professional.

    Screen

    The screen on the phone is a four inch super amoled screen. The colors are very vibrant and crisp with no visible pixelation.

    Network

    I have Tmobile unlimited prepaid service, which is $70 a month. I had absolutely no issues in getting service started. I live in an area where my blackberry constantly stayed between edge and 3G, never fully 3G service so I had no high hopes for this device. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I installed my sim that the indicator was telling me that I was on the 4G network. I have been on this network all day and it has not dropped bars and has remained a steady 4G so I am thrilled about that. The HSPA+ service definitely works and the connections are extremely fast. No issues in that department.

    Email Setup

    I had a little difficulty setting up my email addresses on the phone. I tried fruitlessly when I first turned the phone on to activate my yahoo accounts and the server kept stating that it was not available and could not process my request. I gave up for a few hours and tried again and it did connect. If email is important to you, it may be a slight headache to activate but will run smoothly when it’s actually configured. I found that I needed to set up a gmail account in order to use the Marketplace. While it is not necessary to have a gmail account to access the OS upon first turning the phone on (like the G1), you should take into account that to use this feature you will have to create an account. I still have not synced my student email to the phone because it’s asking for features I do not have (domain). In comparison the Blackberry 9700 allowed me to sync my school account with no issues and never asked for a domain. I just input the email address and password and off I went. This is a slight annoyance but not the end of the world.

    Messaging

    Messaging is pretty standard here. The setup and the color scheme makes it enticing to look at and operates beautifully. There are two keyboards on the phone: Swype and Samsung. I am not much on swyping because I kept making mistakes and that is slightly agitating. I changed the keyboard to Samsung standard and my headache of texting went away!

    Call Level

    I found that there were no issues on the calls that I placed. I heard no static, the calls didn’t drop and that’s all one could ask for. This phone does support WiFi calls. I made a few calls on WiFi and also found no issues in the quality.

    Bluetooth

    It took me less than a minute to sync my Bluetooth with this phone. The phone found the device in about five seconds, found the password OTA and entered it for me and then connected. I was shocked at how fast and effortless it was.

    Browser

    The internet browser is really decent. I was able to go to every site that I attempted with no issues. This phone has adobe flash embedded in the browser so therefore you are able to view video’s within various websites without the video’s being attached to YouTube which is really nice.

    Battery Life

    The battery life on this phone is excellent, as far as I can…

    Good Phone with Many Set Backs, August 12, 2011
    By 

    This review is from: Samsung T959 Galaxy S Vibrant 4G Unlocked Phone with Android OS, 5 MP Camera, GPS and Wi-Fi – Unlocked Phone – US Warranty – Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I’ve been a loyal tmobile customer for as long as I can remember and I’m a huge fan of the android line. Prior to this phone, I’ve owned the G1, the MyTouch (several versions), and the G2. This phone is definitely more refined. It has a great user interface, a nice sleek and clean look, and what would be very user friendly if it wasn’t for a few painful setbacks. The memory on the phone does not clear itself so you are forced to restart the phone quite often in order to gain access to many features. the camera (photo and video), youtube videos, media players, almost none of your media will simply not work and display an error message until you restart your phone. This can be quite annoying. One of the luxuries of having a smart phone is to be able to simply whip it out anywhere during conversation to show someone something or to capture a moment. We live in a fast paced environment nowadays and this phone simply cant keep up with that. The fact there is no flash on the phone is also a huge setback for me, as I enjoyed that feature on previous models.

    Best android in the market my opinion., February 7, 2012
    By 

    This review is from: Samsung T959 Galaxy S Vibrant 4G Unlocked Phone with Android OS, 5 MP Camera, GPS and Wi-Fi – Unlocked Phone – US Warranty – Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    After a few months of having the phone in my possession. I decided to write a review, the phone itself is very slim, and portable. When comparing the the galaxy 4g with the newest iTouch. The galaxy 4g is way lighter than the iTouch. In my opinion its a very important factor because it isn’t heavy or bulky in my pocket. Sometimes I have even check my pockets to make sure it’s there that’s how light it is.
    ** Battery Life**
    The phone comes included with a 1650 mah battery a usb cable and the usb adapter for wall charging. A full charge takes usually about 1hr to 1hr 30 min, and it last me about 1 1/2 day to 2 full days. Normally I use the phone to check my email several times throughout the day, surf the web, send an average of 6 calls per day and several texts.
    ** LCD ***
    One of the good things about the phone is it’s LCD. It has 4in screen it appears to be better than the iPhone’s screen. It’s bright and full of color, ideal to watch movies in HD.
    **Camera**
    The phone came with a GB microsd card meaning you can store thousand’s of pictures. The galaxy has a 5mp camera for decent photographs but it lacks a flash. So when taking pictures at night I suggest you stand near a light post so enough light is provided.
    ** Internet***
    Internet is super fast on T mobile’s 4g network. You can also surf the web using any WiFi network without worrying of going over your data plan limit. When connected to a network the phone also has a feature for Wifi calling, so you might not have service for but WiFi calling will use the network to produce the call. Beware that WiFi calling uses your minutes in your plan.
    *** Call Quality***
    Having this phone for nearly a 9 month period and not a single dropped call. Love this phone I’ve had several friends complain on how their iPhone has too many dropped calls but my galaxy 4g hasn’t. I can hear the person on the other end nice and clear.

    The only defect with this phone is it lacks a flash that is why i decided to give it a 4 stars and not 5. Nowadays who carries a camera with them? Most phone’s have them.
