T-Mobile introduces the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G


Im pretty sure Sprint is the only carrier with a Galaxy S II AND a Galaxy Nexus. Not to mention like 6 other super phones they already have....

Sprint doesn't announce stuff at ces you have to wait in til May CTIA Wireless 2012 don't worry there will be plenty of new phones for Sprint

whats the difference? i swear if this one has a hd screen im gonna be fucking pissed. i was just laughing at the skyrocket user about at&t releasing the skyrocket hd and here i was thinking i was safe

Its the same crap they pulled with the original Galaxy S Vibrant. They released the Galaxy S 4G a few months later. The Vibrant community wasn't happy.

Tmo and ATT need to stop releasing a phone and then re-releasing the same phone with "HD"... THis is getting ridiculous. Verizon did the same thing with the Razr Maxx...smh

Screen is "Super AMOLED" not "Super AMOLED HD." I don't see how this is any different than the Galaxy S II Titanium on T-Mobile. Looks really similar and both are 4G (42 mbps HSPA+). I honestly don't see what the difference is.

I was wondering about the same thing. Why would someone get this and not the Galaxy S2? Maybe for the extra "media features." It would have been better to get the G Note.

From what I can tell, it seems more like a Samsung Galaxy S 1.5...this phone doesn't have NFC or even the "Plus" title.

T-mobile is really giving their customers the shaft in phone selection compared to....everyone else. And all these other international phones are leaving out a T-mobile band, so the only option is ATT.
