I HATE THIS PHONE!!! I'm actually going back to a "dumb" phone after this nightmare.Rebooted several times thru boost mobile.Battery life sux. Overheats during a five minute conversation.Apps freeze.3G is slow.Internet virtually non-existant.Touch screen freezes.Takes pics of whatever ,wherever randomly.Can't end a phone call. And the list goes on.Worst POS i have ever owned in my life..DO NOT BUY !!!
I've had this fone for 9 months. No complaints except for the internal memory. they really should've made this with at least 100mb more. Not alot more but it makes a big difference
On month number 8. This phone has gone through more than other androids would and still works like a charm. An excellent purchase.
Dannynitro, 24 Mar 2012I just ordered this phone. Did I make a mistake?Yes, you made the wrong decision. This phone has very little internal memory and can not support but a few apps. I hate it.
i've had mine for 9 months and have had to send it off to samsung to repair 2 times! the first time it was dropping calls and had no service after boost master reset it, the second time it froze and wouldn't work at all. and now it says it's charging when there is no charger connected. i wouldn't recommend this phone, it's truly been a pain to send it away for 2 weeks or more especially when i depend on my phone for my job
I love it the battery could be better but as for speed and efficancy its great i love the meomory, battery gets warm and takes awhile to charge its loud dont like the single tones message sounds but overall its a good phone and i would reccomend it.
The galaxy prevail is a great phone but the battery dies out extremly fast
Samsung Galaxy Prevail is an Android smartphone with 3.2" display. It is part of the Samsung Galaxy family and its model number is sph-m820. It is sold exclusively by Boost Mobile. It has 2MP camera, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and supports up to 32GB microSD memory cards. It is powered by a Qualcomm 800 MHz MSM7000 chip. It shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo. Through firmware updates, it now runs Gingerbread 2.3.5
Battery is a 3.7v Li-ion, 1500 mAh, model EB504465VA (Which is also compatible with the Samsung Acclaim r880, Samsung Craft r900, Samsung Indulge r910, Samsung Intercept m910, Samsung Replenish m580, Samsung Showcase i500, Samsung Sidekick 4G t839 and Samsung Transform m920.)
I guess Samsung changed the Prevail later in production. Mine is a month old today. It came with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. It has WiFi as I use it on my router at home. The battery gets warm sometimes, but never hot. A full charge with heavy use last all day. The phone has never locked up and is very quick. Network performance is great here in Tulsa. I think I would be insisting that Sprint / Boost update my older Prevail.
HATE this phone. I can start the day with a full battery and by lunch it's dead, even with limited use, such as texting on and off. The phone freezes almost every time I open an app or make a call. And it overheats whenever I'm doing anything but light texting. The phone is slow as heck and lags like crazy. I've had it for five months and intend on replacing it as soon as I can, as it's performance deteriorates a little more each day. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.
