Samsung Galaxy Rush review:

 

Just because a phone isn't large or expensive doesn't mean that you can't get some of the best that Android has to offer. That's the message Boost Mobile seems to be wrapping into the Samsung Galaxy Rush, a petite package with Android 4.0 Ice Cream...

The Samsung Galaxy Rush has Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a nice, petite design, and a front-facing camera.

A slow processor, poor photo quality, and creeping 3G data network are part of the Galaxy Rush's drawbacks.

Android 4.0 and an affordable price help make Boost Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Rush a decent no-contract option, but lower-end specs are disappointing nevertheless.

Samsung Galaxy Rush (Boost Mobile)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Rush is an inexpensive way to get Android 4.0 on Boost Mobile, but you won't forget that it's a budget smartphone.

Good call quality. Runs a mostly stock build of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Middling performance. Low-res display. No 4G. Cheap look and feel.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The phone packs 1.91GB of free internal storage. There's also an empty microSD card slot on the left-side panel, in which my 32 and 64GB SanDisk cards worked fine. Music sounded good through Altec Lansing Backbeat...

"Not happy at all."

 

Will return it to the store.

Is there anything to say?

This phone does not allow you to move the new downloaded apps to the external sd card. This limit the available space in the internal memory and then the amount of apps you will be able to download. The sd card is only for media storage...
