Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE (Boost Mobile)


The Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE is a reasonably high-quality, affordable smartphone on Boost Mobile, but it's outflanked by even lower-priced competitors.

Good build quality. Some helpful software additions.

Relatively pricey. Mediocre camera. Average display.

Camera and Conclusions Samsung managed to include an LED flash with the 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, but it doesn't do much to improve things beyond the Moto E's flash-less shooter. Images taken in bright outdoor light look well-balanced and...

Samsung Prevail


In the years since the first Android device debuted, we've seen dozens of forgettable handsets running Google's now-ubiquitous software. The Samsung Prevail would fall into that category, too – were it not for some tempting pricing. It costs $180 with...

Samsung Galaxy Prevail (Boost Mobile) review


When we first heard the rumors of a new Samsung Galaxy phone for Boost Mobile, we envisioned a handset very much like the Samsung Mesmerize for U.S. Cellular; in other words, the next clone in the black, ultraglossy Galaxy S line. To Samsung's credit,...

The Samsung Galaxy Prevail has an elegant design and a surprisingly decent camera. It's eligible for Boost Mobile's reduced-rate plan.

Boost Mobile turned off the Prevail's Android 2.2 hot-spot capabilities. Also, call quality could be better.

The Samsung Galaxy Prevail marries sophistication with good value to become Boost Mobile's best smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Prevail (Boost Mobile)


The Prevail runs a mostly stock Android build, without a manufacturer overlay. The phone syncs e-mail, calendars, and contacts for Gmail and Microsoft Exchange accounts, and works with many other popular e-mail accounts. Android Market offers access to...

Good set of features and performance for the price. Fantastic plan pricing. Free, built-in TeleNav GPS. Responsive UI (given the lower-end hardware). Good looking

Limited video codec support. Hardware not up to par with the latest Android devices. Screen is a little cramped for typing. Poor video camera quality

A worthy competitor to the LG Optimus line, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail gives Boost Mobile users a lot of Android-powered goodness for their buck.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE for Boost Mobile


Samsung churns out another entry-level Android handset for Boost Mobile's prepaid service. The Galaxy Prevail LTE is an updated handset that improves upon its predecessor's specs while maintaining a low price point.

Samsung Galaxy Prevail Review


If you are in the market for an inexpensive Android device, you might want to check out the Samsung Galaxy Prevail. The Samsung Galaxy Prevail is only $180 on Boost Mobile.

Samsung Galaxy Prevail Reviewed


The Samsung Galaxy Prevail is the latest entry level smartphone from Samsung, set to be released for Boost Mobile in the United States. Featuring a modest 800 MHz Qualcomm processor and Android 2.2, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail hopes to capture the lower...

Overall the Samsung Galaxy Prevail is a great little addition to Boost Mobile's line up and a great entry level smartphone for customers looking for a cheap smartphone. Like the LG Optimus C, it is a bit late to the market, and with no real...

Samsung Galaxy Prevail Review by Sydney


I said this a few times in the video review for the Prevail and I'll say it again here. In all areas, the Prevail is about what you would expect. It's an inexpensive mid-range smartphone from a prepaid carrier. Yes, it did lag sometimes. Yes, the...

Android 2.2; stock Android (if you're into that); good battery life; appealing hardware design; good price

Occasional lag and freezing; poor camera quality

Samsung Galaxy Prevail Review Part 2 | PhoneDog


The Samsung Prevail may not be the most interesting device around, but it's a big deal for Boost Mobile customers who've long been waiting for a decent Android smartphone to call their own. The specs on this one are pretty standard: 800 MHz ...
