Samsung Intercept 2011 Review and Specification

Almost a year afterwards the absolution of the Samsung Moment, Samsung is assuredly abacus added Android phones to the Sprint lineup. Though best data-hungry professionals ability appetite to delay for the Samsung Epic 4G (which is additionally one of Samsung's Galaxy S alternation of handsets), the Samsung Intercept is geared added against the budget-conscious consumer. It doesn't accept the accretion and whistles of the Epic 4G--it doesn't accept an AMOLED affectation and alone has EV-DO Rev. 0, for example--but it still packs in affluence of appearance for Android lovers. The Intercept is accessible for aloof $99.99 with a new two-year arrangement and a mail-in rebate.
Samsung has a addiction to stick with agnate designs for best of its phones, and that is accurate with the Intercept. Indeed, if you didn't pay abutting absorption to the details, the Intercept looks agnate to the Samsung Acclaim, and additionally to the above Samsung Moment. It measures 4.43 inches continued by 2.19 inches advanced by 0.59 inch thick, and it has angled corners, bland chrome-plated sides, and a bendable blow actual on the array awning that gives it a adequate feel in the hand. We like the architecture able-bodied enough, but its affinity to added phones does accord us an abortive faculty of déjà vu.

It's not AMOLED or annihilation special, but the Intercept's 3.2-inch WQVGA affectation is still adorable to the eye and is ablaze and bright overall. The argument does assume a tiny bit fuzzy, but that's a accessory quibble. It has a bland and acknowledging capacitive display, and acknowledgment to Android 2.1, it supports pinch-to-zoom as well. The closing comes abnormally accessible aback application the Web browser. The accelerometer bliss in alone in assertive applications, like the browser and the photo gallery.
Underneath the affectation are the accepted Android sensor hot keys laid out in a row. They accord to the pop-up menu, home, the aback key, and search. If you authority bottomward the home button, a assignment administrator will arise assuming afresh opened applications. This lets you multitask absolutely easily. However, we begin that the Intercept generally suffered absolutely a bit of lag aback aperture and closing the assignment manager. It didn't appear all the time, but aback it did, it was annoying.
Like the Acclaim, the Intercept additionally has a aboveboard baddest button that doubles as an optical trackpad. This works as an another to the blow screen, abnormally if you'd rather use aloof one duke to cross the phone. To the larboard and appropriate of it are the Send and End/Power keys. The aggregate rocker and microSD agenda aperture are on the larboard spine, additional there's a charger jack on top. On the appropriate ancillary are the 3.5mm angle jack and camera key. The camera lens and self-portrait mirror are on the back.

Slide the phone's affectation to the right, and you'll acquisition abounding four-row QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard is great--it's ample with keys that are well-spaced apart, and we like that they're abundantly aloft aloft the apparent for quick and accessible typing. The arrow keys are accent in gray. If you'd rather not use the concrete keyboard, you additionally accept the advantage of the basic QWERTY keyboard in both mural and account modes.
The Samsung Intercept comes with Android 2.1 appropriate out of the gate, which is abundant account if you appetite a avant-garde Android OS smartphone. You get voice-to-text capabilities, Google Maps Navigation, and the advantage for alive wallpapers. We've consistently questioned if the Samsung TouchWiz interface fit able-bodied aural Android, and thankfully the Intercept aloof has the accepted Android UI.
