Aaron takes an in-depth look at T-Mobile's newest Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G.  Technically, it's not a Galaxy S II, but it packs some similar features like a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 3.97-inch Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, front-facing camera, a 1,750 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with TouchWiz 4.0.  It's priced very reasonably at $149.99.  Is it worth considering?  Part 1 of 2.

Maxi Fabián I'd like to give a try to Windows Phone but the version 8 that is coming out soon i guess.. I use Android so far, i'm getting a bit tired fighting with Force Closes and Random Lag .. I'd like also see how well the Galaxy S3 performs running Android 4.0 but i'm curious about Windows Phone World.
