First Look: Meet the prepaid Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G

1:09 /

With its 3.2-megapixel camera and 1GHz processor, we understand that the Galaxy Admire 4G from MetroPCS is an inexpensive entry-level handset, but we still can't help being disappointed that it ships with the dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.

Hello everybody, it's Lynn La from CNET here with the Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G from MetroPCS. With its 0.47 inch profile, this entry level device is a little on the thick side, but it has a compact frame and a 3.5 inch HVGA Gorilla Glass display. Its 4G LTE enabled with hotspotting capabilities and comes equipped with a microSD card slot. In addition, it's powered by a 2.1 ampere-hour battery which roughly translates to a reported talk time of 3 hours. Now unfortunately, the phone ships with the dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, which is disappointing, since there are already a couple on newer Android versions released. The handset runs on a 1 gigahertz processor and features 1.38 gigs of internal memory. On the back is a 3.2 megapixel camera and on the front is a VGA camera. If you're interested, the phone is currently going for $99 and requires no carrier or contract. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been MetroPCS's Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G.
