Engadget Review

The Blaze 4G is a good handset that stops just short of greatness. Once it falls to a lower price, it'll be an excellent choice for those unwilling to splurge on top-shelf features.

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is an impressive device with great ergonomics and speedy performance. Apart from some issues with the display, it is also built very well. ... the experience is only that much better if you can take advantage of the high-speed data services while on the go.

The processing power behind this phone makes it a great option for just about anyone who wants a new phone on the cheap(ish) and doesn't want to sacrifice too much ... Couple this with T-Mobile's speedy HSPA+ network and you have a well rounded phone that could be considered the Galaxy S II mini.

Phone Scoop
The Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G is a really solid effort from the Korean smartphone maker. As previously mentioned, it doesn't aim all that high, but it hits the mark where it counts. Aside from perhaps the weak earpiece and speakerphone, there's almost nothing about the device that falls short.
