Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Review Video

I just got Samsung Galaxy Proclaim delivered and I'm going to do a quick review/unboxing video so you can get a quick look at it right away. I'll be doing a pretty in-depth review at SamsungGalaxyProclaim.net - you can find a link to this site in the description.

This is a brand new phone that came out approximately May 12th, 2012 for Straight Talk and Net10. It's a pretty big deal since it is the first smart phone from either of these prepaid services that works on the Verizon network.

I'm literally just getting it out of the package today so I can't tell you too much about how I like it, but I'll do my best.

Here's the startup sequence.

So here you have the phone, it runs android 2.3 (gingerbread). It's running a 1 ghz processor with 512mb of ram, and it is pretty snappy so far.

It's a 3.5 inch Gorilla Glass touch screen, which is the same size as the iPhone and iPod touch as well as the LG Optimus Net and Samsung Galaxy Precedent. These are a couple of previous Straight Talk and Net10 Android devices.

There are only two hardware buttons on the phone - on the left side is the volume rocker, and on the right is the power/unlock button. Having that button on the side is kind of unusual - most phones have it somewhere on the top. This isn't a problem, but it is different.

The "home row" of buttons - menu, home, back, and search, from left-to-right - are touch screen buttons rather than physical keys. This allows for a cleaner look.

A couple of quick notes here - the back battery cover is somewhat beveled and made of a fairly hard plastic, which makes it feel a little slippery and insecure in my hand. I prefer the more "rubbery" feel of the back of the LG Optimus Net.

It's also pretty light weight, which is something I like but others might say it feels cheap.
Well, after just having a few minutes to try out the Proclaim, I'd have to say that it does very well in terms of appearance and performance. I'm still getting used to the feel of it, though as I stated earlier I do prefer a phone with more grip on the back.

Other than that, I'm sure I'll have a lot more to talk about in future videos. If you have any questions for me or want to learn more, please visit my Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Review site at SamsungGalaxyProclaim.net
