The Impulse 4G is part of new generation of low-end smartphones. Features that were once saved for high-end devices are now making their way down to low-end budget-friendly devices like the Impulse. The Impulse has features like 4G HSPA+ for data, a camera capable of capturing 720p HD video, and Wi-Fi Hotspot capabilities.

In this unboxing video, Sydney takes a first look at the Impulse and gives her first impressions of this new Android smartphone in AT&T's line-up.

Facebook user no, I think low end Android devices need to go away, period. Android hardly runs well on high end devices. In the end low end devices will end up doing Android more harm than good

Zach Cline Smartphones are not hard to comprehend to begin with so k wouldn't buy anyone this pos.
Stanley Valon
Stanley Valon I think people are forgetting that "FIRST TIME" smartphone user its pretty inexpensive and performs well considering last year it was all about 720p and a fast processor (800 next gen probably)
Zach Cline
Zach Cline Nope. Like the one guy said. -You get what you pay for.

Joe Gates They all have the generic Android OS and will cost $2000 over 2 years. Might as well spend a little more and get an iPhone 5.

Thomas Benjamin Robbins Why would anyone consider buying a low end smartphone to begin with? If you're going to be investing every month towards data, why would you bother? I never understood why anyone would get a Moto Citrus, LG Ally/Vortex, Pantech came out w one for ATT. I get it but why not save up and get the Bionic, Evo series, even the newer BBs would be way better
