For what it’s worth, we’re content with the images produced by the smartphone’s 5-megapixel auto-focus camera – though, they’re not particularly super sharp. Well, it does the job for things like outdoor scenery shots, as it delivers some pleasant visuals worth looking at, however, it miserably fails in low light conditions. Aside from its slow capture time, you’ll need to have a steady hand when taking images in low lighting, or else find images that become blurry looking.

Likewise, the Blaze 4G’s 720p video recording isn’t the sharpest in the barn, but rather, we’re distracted most by its over-sharp appearance – with details being on the soft side of things. Overall, its lack of fine detail makes it appear muddy in appearance, while its audio recording doesn’t do justice with its muffled sound. Still, it does move swimmingly at 30 frames per second, but don’t expect a whole lot beyond that.

With the TouchWiz music player on board with the Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G, it’s nothing particularly captivating, especially when it’s a tad bit on the conventional side with its presentation. Placing our attention on its audio quality, its volume output is average – though, a tiny bit of strain is evident at the loudest setting. However, there are a variety of equalizer options to adapt its quality to specific genres.

Thank primarily to its luscious looking Super AMOLED display, it delivers the goods to keep our attention when it comes to watching videos. Playing our test video that’s encoded in DivX 1920 x 1080 resolution, it’s spectacular to watch thanks to its vivid colors, sharp details, and smooth playback.

Unfortunately, there’s no physical video-out function available with the device, but instead, it offers the untethered experience with DLNA functionality with the AllShare app.

Windows phone is the latest trend today and Nokia Lumia is the best smartphone today. The proven windows phone with the trusted Nokia Hardware is a superior example and as always nokia sells all teh models of the windows phones at the lowest price. comparatively samsung is selling ugly models and designs with poorer battery at even higher prices.

Perhaps because I am used to one other Android phone, myTouch Q, that I consider a bad phone, and before that one, a non smart phone I liked, T-Mobile Tap, I really am impressed and like the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. It has good sound, even speaker. I can listen to music on the speaker without getting peeved off; although it has wonderful sound on ear buds and stereo Bluetooth headset. I do use non stock music player and video player. The latter which really uses the Super AMOLED screen with good effect.

Its battery lasts longer than my awake day, longer than the specs say, even for talk time, but I must confess that I've fiddled with it a bit. Even before I fiddled with it I liked it.

It has every thing I like in the S III, most, without the pricey tag. I plan to get the S III when I can afford it and a custom case for it. Several of my friends have discovered that it's not wise to carry an S III in a pocket, whereas I have carried the Blaze naked in a pocket around the house. I have dropped the naked blaze on carpet and wood floors with the worse to happen, the back popped off.

I dont recommend dropping it.

I recommend a D30 molecule case when out and about with it.

The Blaze is fast. At home I dont use the usb cable to exchange files; I use wifi, it's easier and fast. It has so many ways to exchange files with my desktops. I plan to try it with my old 1400cs.

Instead of the extended battery I elect to carry two extra oem batteries; it's easy to change batteries and the Blaze has fast startup. I want to avoid any possible problems.
