Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G unboxing
Are you a T-Mobile customer that thinks the Samsung Galaxy S II is simply too big for you to handle? Well then, you ought to look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. Although it’s technically still a part of the original Samsung Galaxy S series, it has been upgraded to make it seem as if it were part of the Galaxy S II line. We’ve had some hands-on time with the device back at Mobile World Congress, but it has landed in our front door ready for us to really check out what it has to offer. For those interested, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G will be arriving on March 28th for the 2-year contract price of $149.99.

In typical fashion, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G sports the usual packaging we’ve come to accept with most devices on T-Mobile’s lineup. Hardly surprising, we’re presented with a snazzy looking image of the smartphone right in front, while the rear holds some of its main features – more on that later. Inside, nothing is out of the ordinary as it’s packaged along with the usual assortment of documentation, microUSB cable, wall charger, and an always useful microSD card adapter. Honestly, for the price, we can’t be too upset because it’s the usual items we’ve come to find with all devices in this day and age.

Right away, we’re a bit taken back holding it for the first time. Well, it’s blatantly obvious that it’s a typical Samsung made device – being all-plastic and all. However, what’s impressive is that it’s extremely compact in size for a smartphone bearing a 4” Super AMOLED display. Even more, when we place it next to an iPhone 4S, it’s barely noticeable that the Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G is a tiny bit larger. As for the rest, it features a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, 5-megapixel auto-focus rear camera, 720p video recording, front-facing camera, 1,750 mAh battery, HSPA+ 42Mbps connectivity, and the latest TouchWiz UI running on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Looking from the front, the bottom of the phone have the round up design. which look like the exhibit 2 :D, but the upper part does look different
Looking from the back, the upper part have the curve on the top, which really look like Exhibit, but instead of nothing, Exhibit has a camera located there.
They look different, I know that, but it reminds me of exhibit 2 4g though it's not exactly the same, even the spec, it seems like an upgrade device of Exhibit 2 4G ^^!
Excuse me for my English if there is any grammar mistake :D :D!
