Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G

It's been a long, long time since we've seen the words "Galaxy S" without a II folowed closely thereafter. But that's exactly what we have here in the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. Don't let it fool you, though, it's got 2011's specs -- better known as Galaxy II specs. And for what it lacks in hardware prowess, it makes up for in network speed, as it's able to lock onto TMo's 42Mbps network. Otherwise? It's fairly unimpressive but should serve as a capable beginner smartphone with a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display, dual-core Snapdragon processor at 1.5GHz, and a slew of preloaed apps.

Still no word on when it's coming, other than "later this year."

We've got hands-on video and pics after the break.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G hands-on

Unfortunately it is starting to look like those of us who don't want a huge phone will have to settle for something with dated specs. My Galaxy SII 4.3" screen is almost too big some days but I can make it work. My girlfriend's 4" Atrix 4G screen seems easier to use for things like typing. I don't want to have to use both hands for everything. Remember the Incredible? It was a decent phone and had a 3.7" screen. But apparently bigger is better. I guess I'll possibly have to consider a *gag* iphone if I want to stay with a smartphone but not have a 4.7"+ brick in my pocket. Or a Razr.

Yea sometimes my SGSII feels too big at times. My matrix was perfect and I would go back if the screen and camera wasn't so bad.

I like the phone but technically it is just a "beginner" Android smartphone. I mean think about ti....could I go from my Nexus S running ICS to this NEW, faster Samsung? Probably not or at least not without disappointment. I mean come on T-Mobile, I've been with you guys for 12 years so I'm not going anywhere but I need a HIGH-RANGE, Android phone running 4.VANILLA!!! Please get a flagship phone

Android Central needs to stop giving coverage to high-end devices still being released with Gingerbread. There is no excuse for manufactures to be releasing phones with that old OS. 3 months since it release, almost a year since it's announcement. And the phone isn't even set to release for months.

Such a joke!

Personally the Note is not too big for me. In fact I don't want to own a smartphone with a smaller screen than the Note.
