Samsung Intercept Review

Samsung Intercept

Performance and Conclusion:

Call quality was very good with the Samsung Intercept.  We had no issues hearing callers and they sounded clear and natural.  They commented that this was one of the better phones we have tested and said if there was anything to complain about it was a slight tininess, but that was nitpicking.  The battery is rated at 6.4 hours, nearly an hour higher than the Samsung Moment which didn’t come close to hitting the mark.  In our testing we were came up just short at 6.3 hours, which is still fine.  It should hold up to a day of usage without much problem, which is what a smartphone needs to do.

With a little tweaking the Samsung Intercept is a very solid mid-range Android device.  While there are some disappointments such as the lower resolution screen and lack of Rev. A, the Intercept makes up for it with a good keypad and a comfortable overall design.  The Intercept is certainly no HTC EVO 4G or Samsung Epic 4G, but rather a mid-range Android device that will deliver a lot of performance for half the price of these top-tier beasts.  With a pink version and a price tag just shy of $100 dollars we envision it being a strong seller in Sprint’s lineup.
