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 processor, 3.2-inch display, 2 MP camera - but it also has a good price. The Prevail costs $179 with no contract.

After testing out the Prevail, it turned out to deliver exactly what it promised. There were a few problems with lag and some glitches, but you pretty much get what you pay for with this device. In this two-part review, Sydney goes into detail about different aspects of the phone - the display, the camera, the battery performance, etc.

Part 1 of 2.

Sean White I work and get great pay and I use boost this is by far the best phone they have and I know its more to come I'll definitely be getting this because their motorola i1 had become useless for me but for $45 a month unlimited everything I can make alot of phone calls without being worried about my bill being spiked +$5 phone insurance so in covered

Emmanuel Castro Anh Tuan Le, are you joking? I like this phone, is kinda cool for those that don't have hundreds to spend a month on this endless pits we come to call carriers.
Matthew Scott Kirby
Matthew Scott Kirby You don't have to be homeless to go with boost. The way the economy is now, people go with prepaid carriers so they don't have to pay a phone bill that is outrageously pricey. Just throwing that in, but of course every one is entitled to their own opinion. But i watched the review by Sydney and i actually liked the phone. It looked nice, but the camera is a drag. Wish it could have been better. I think im going to get this phone, because i want an android, and considering im one of those "homeless" people this is just the right price for me.
Darryl Mouzone
Darryl Mouzone I'm happy with the phone I have now and no fanboy or troll that makes a lame biased comment can change that.

Anh-Tuan Le Samsung=Apple copier. Because Apple invented the smartphone and touchscreen. Apple also invented the computer and the laptop. Apple also invented the TV and music players. Where would this world be without Apple?

Luis Robles Figueroa
Luis Robles Figueroa The company plans are so cheap that they can't give a super phone. Specs n price gotta meet what they are offering for plans.
Cyr Parlapiano
Cyr Parlapiano I guess but being a galaxy phone they could have made it better maybe Atleast a 3.2 mp camera. 2 is quite on the low end the rumor touch has a 2. And an 800 mhz processor is ok but with it being a galaxy phone it really could of been a 1ghz considering sammy is in the works of a 2ghz dual core processor. For the price of 180 your better off getting the optimus v for 20$ more in my opinion unless you need the ultd minutes the extra 25$ against the beyond talk isnt worth it. We will see Whats really better when somebody roots and gets an overclockable kernel and pushes it past 800 which is where my brothers optimus is pushed too. And i also got cm7 on it which is gingerbread so we will see in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to xda for info. Thats jus my $.02
