Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G Review
Despite some minor flaws, such as the crackly tones heard on our caller's end and through the speakerphone, it's still tolerable enough to carry out conversations. Through the earpiece, however, there's not a problem with the distinct voices we're presented with.

Signal strength is hardly a concern with this one, as we didn’t experience any dropped calls or major fluctuation during our usage in the greater Philadelphia region.


Battery:

Even though it pumps enough juice for us to get through a solid day of normal usage, power users are more than likely to connect it to a power source at least once through the course of a day. So yeah, it's pretty much average with its performance.


Conclusion:

If you can somehow see through the boring design of the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, you'll find a superb Android smartphone that manages to be a good device in the mid-range category. In this day and age, it seems that the sweet spot for mid-rangers tends to be at $100, and at $150 with a 2-year contract, some might think the Relay 4G to be overpriced. Instead, we find it fitting knowing that it's one of the few Android smartphones being released nowadays with a fantastic keyboard – plus, some of the cool software features found with Sammy's flagship. Therefore, if you desperately desire something with a great keyboard, you should keep this in contention at the moment.
