Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile Hands-on [MWC 2012]


Tucked away inside one of the side events here at Mobile World Congress was T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. While the device has already been announced, we haven’t had a chance to play with it for ourselves until today. It’s a nice little mid-range offering that should be perfect for those who want to ease into the smartphone game.

The device is thin and light, and unlike a lot of other mid-range phones (Samsung included) it actually looks very good aesthetically. The device’s backplate has a premium-feeling mesh finish which transitions into a nice glossy exterior near the top. Samsung doesn’t do anything risky with the design, and it’s for that I thank them.

As for functional specs, we have a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, a 5 megapixel rear camera which can shoot HD 720p video, a front-facing camera, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Android 2.3 with TouchWiz, plus a lot more.

For $150 on a two-year contract, it’s not the greatest value but with a slight price drop here and there it could be an attractive offering. Look for this one sometime in March. Our hands-on video is above and find some images of the device below.

[Note]: The rep we spoke with mentioned the device had a 3.5 inch display and a 1GHz single-core processor. In actuality, the device has a 4 inch Super AMOLED display and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The discrepancy in the video is due to the lack of a spec sheet at the site of the hands-on. We have corrected the errors in writing.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

      1. I agree, I’m a lot less anal about errors when I know the editors are running on Red Bull and unicorn wishes.

  2. I’m sure this will rapidly increase the time it takes for Samsung to develop ICS for all of its other phones. From what I hear, the more phones you have the less time it takes to upgrade them.
