Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G ReviewSamsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G 8
For voice calls, we’re happy to report that the Blaze 4G delivers a robust experience in almost all aspects. Specifically, voices on both ends of the line are filled with clear and distinguishable tones without any evidence of any static noise in the background. However, its volume output is a tiny bit lacking with its earpiece and speakerphone, but nevertheless, we’re still able to comprehend voices. Did we mention that Wi-Fi calling is available as well?
During our time using the smartphone, it’s able to maintain a solid connection to the network with signal strength normally hovering around at -69 dBm in high coverage areas.
Strengthening its appeal even further, the 1,750 mAh battery tuck inside its body is able to provide us close to 2 days of battery life with light usage. In contrast, we’re also able to edge out a single day on heavy usage as well. Already, we’ve been impressed by a lot of things, but this is simply icing on the cake.
Good things are still found in small packages. In fact, that’s essentially what we find with T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as it’s able to impress us in so many ways. To tell you the truth, we weren’t expecting a lot out of this one, especially when the Samsung Galaxy S II is out there floating around, but it’s evident that the Blaze 4G is a wonderful alternative for those who prefer a device that’s more compact – without sacrificing the goods in the specs department. Taking into account its $149.99 2-year contract price, it’s price reasonably enough to justify it standing close to its highly touted sibling in the Galaxy S II.
