Samsung Galaxy Discover comes to Cricket Video Transcript
Hey, everyone. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET here at CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas. This is the Samsung Galaxy Discover, a new phone for Cricket that will be coming out this summer. As a Cricket phone, it is preinstalled with Muve Music. That is their music service for every phones and some other phones as well, and that gives you unlimited downloads for anything that you wanna hear, songs, ring tones, whatever. This is an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone. Interestingly, it runs stock Android and not Samsung's usual TouchWiz interface. It's fairly low-end, more of an entry-level device. It looks a little bit like the Samsung Galaxy S3. It's thicker, but it does have the sort of brushed finish on the back and this nice neutral color. This phone has a 3.5-inch display and a 3-megapixel camera. There's no LTE on here. No front-facing camera, pretty much just the basics. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET. This has been the Samsung Galaxy Discover, and you can find all of our CTIA coverage at CNET.com.
The LG Optimus C is an entry-level Android smartphone for Cricket Wireless.
The fabled Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon is here! Is the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich phone for the U.S. as slick and fast as they say?
CNET Asia gets a First Look at Samsung's newest Android phone, the Galaxy Nexus. The big-screen, feature-packed phone runs on Google's new Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
Snapping up the Huawei Ascend was a good move for Cricket Wireless. The Android 2.1 phone is a solid entry-level phone for a great price.
The entry-level 4G Android for AT&T's Aio Wireless balances features and a no-contract cost.
The $129.99 Samsung Galaxy Discover for Cricket Wireless serves up Android Ice Cream Sandwich without a binding wireless contract.
The $199.99 Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the first Android smartphone to rock Ice Cream Sandwich has finally come to Sprint. It's virtually identical to its Verizon sibling except this handset will eventually connect to Sprint's 4G LTE network and also offers support for the Google Wallet mobile payment app.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus wouldn't be much without Ice Cream Sandwich, but when it's combined with the latest version of the Android OS, you end up with a sleek and powerful smartphone.
Sprint's version of this debut Ice Cream Sandwich phone has something that Verizon's doesn't.
With its 3.2-megapixel camera and 1GHz processor, we understand that the Galaxy Admire 4G from MetroPCS is an inexpensive entry-level handset, but we still can't help being disappointed that it ships with the dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
Samsung Galaxy Discover (Cricket Wireless) Review
The good: The Samsung Galaxy Discover has Muve Music downloads, a removable battery, and an SD card slot.
The bad: The Discover suffers from slow processor and data speeds, short battery life, and poor call quality.
The bottom line: The Samsung Galaxy Discover is an affordable prepaid Android choice, but weak call quality and short battery life make the Kyocera Hydro a better Cricket option.
