Mobile World Congress 2014: Samsung Galaxy 4G

1:26 /

Samsung's Galaxy sequel brings 4G to the Vibrant-like handset, but it will only run Android 2.2 at launch.

-Hi, I'm Kent German. I'm Senior Editor at CNET.com. I'm here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. I wanna show you the Samsung Galaxy 4G. This is a new phone for T-Mobile. So, it's in the Galaxy S Series. So, it looks a lot like some of the Galaxy S phones we've seen: got a rectangular candy bar design, it's really thin, very light in the hand actually. It almost feels a little too light but I would be a little careful with dropping it, you know, banging it around. It does have some chrome edges, has a little bit of a lip here on the bottom, but that doesn't make any difference really to how it feels in the hand. You have 7 homescreens that you can customize with your widgets, folders, shortcuts. It is running Froyo, so it's Android 2.2. So, it does have a 5-megapixel camera. It's gonna have all of the features you'd expect from Android phones. And then, up at the top, we do have a second camera that is for video calling. It has a full web browser. It does have a virtual keyboard since there's no physical keyboard. It can do HD video and it does support T-Mobile's HSPA Plus Network. So, that's not working here in Spain, but of course, you can get it in the United States. And, you know, there's argument over whether that really constitutes 4G, but it is very fast, and it's nice to see another HSPA Plus product for T-Mobile, especially something that has this great display and it's really vibrant, and a lot of these features. But overall, pretty good Android phone, great for that 4G experience as well. I'm Kent German here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with the Samsung Galaxy S 4G.
