Samsung Conquer 4G

The Samsung Conquer 4G is Sprint's 25th 4G-capable device but the carrier's first 4G smartphone to launch at less than $100. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread device is priced at $99.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate and will be available starting August 21.

Features

Given the price, you are giving up some higher-end features like a dual-core processor, high-resolution display, and better camera. However, the Conquer 4G still offers a lot, including 4G support, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a front-facing camera, and a next-gen 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

Design

The Conquer 4G measures 4.57 inches tall by 2.38 inches wide by 0.46 inch thick and weighs 4.1 ounces. On front, you get a 3.5-inch, 320x480-pixel touch screen, which isn't the sharpest compared with today's advanced displays, but still clear and bright enough to get the job done.

Picture quality

Picture quality could have been better in low-light conditions. Though objects came out clear in pictures, the overall photos looked dull with washed-out color.
