A great Mid-Range device from Virgin Mobile which is great for the average user and exceeds expectations in some places, but lacks in others.

The Samsung Galaxy Ring is a powerful Mid Range device from Virgin. While the RAM is not as high on devices such as the S4 or the HTC ONE the Ring has a 1.4 GHZ Quad Core Processor which is good enough for the average user. The screen is a little blurry when you move items on the screen to fast but the screen is great in Low Light Conditions. Sadly the device lacks in build quality and is cheaper than the S3 mini (which it is based on). Also the Ring lacks any 4G radio, NFC, IR, or S-Beam but does include Bluetooth 4.0.
The internet is very dependent on the 3G signal of wherever the user is and in many spots will make you use Sprint's very slow 2G network.
The camera is very, very mediocre at best and lacks some of the recent additions Samsung has added to their devices.
The Galaxy Ring runs Android Version 4.1.2 (Comes with 4.1.1) and is very snappy and will keep even the speediest of users happy.
The battery on the Ring is sadly sub-par and keeps a charge for 8-9 hours on average usage (BUT the back is removable, so when a extended battery is released you can use it.)
In conclusion the Samsung Galaxy Rings feels like a much faster (but less well built) than the device it mimics the Galaxy S3 Mini.
