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.

Tim Vinzant Android over windows every time. Microsoft can't stop make phones. I have no confidence. They have enough trouble keeping their operating system going.
Devin VandeVelde Windows phone is the smoothest operating system out there.
Orion Pax No WP7 or iOS will beat my rare white 32gb Galaxy Note with 64gb MicroSDHC... Never. They are always limited with space restrictions.

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 ..
