You should probably just buy the Galaxy S II. That’s our opinion, anyway, after playing with Samsung’s new Galaxy S 4G Blaze for T-Mobile. It’s a solid device, don’t get us wrong, and we really like the build and industrial design, but its hardware specs aren’t that impressive. Plus, it’s a brand new phone and it’s one of the few at Mobile World Congress that aren’t running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Pretty lackluster, if you ask us.
The device sports a 3.97-inch Super AMOLED display with a 480 x 800-pixel resolution that isn’t as sharp and impressive as the HD screens we’ve been seeing here on the show floor. Other features include a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p HD video, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. We’d hold out for the better quad-core or Android 4.0 devices if we were buying a smartphone right now, though, so you may want to pass this one up.
