Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G review: T-Mobile's QWERTY slider falls flat
The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, T-Mobile's newest QWERTY slider, offers snappy performance and good battery life, but the uncomfortable keyboard is a dealbreaker.
- Good everyday performanceComfortable gripSolid battery life
- Flat, nearly unusable keyboardWeak cameraCheap, overly branded design
We first heard rumblings about the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q slider back in August, and what stood out most -- apart from the rumored Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and HSPA+42 connectivity -- was that long-winded moniker. Interesting, then, that Sammy should re-brand the T-Mobile device with a name that does nothing to clarify this handset's identity: the Galaxy S Relay 4G. That jumble of words aside, this phone offers a five-row QWERTY layout, a dual-core S4 chip and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, all for the moderate price of $150 (with a $50 mail-in rebate). Is this slider the best T-Mobile has to offer? Join us past the break as we give the Relay the full run-through.
