The basics

Meet the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. It's a mouthful, but the features don't lie. The phone starts you off with a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and 4G speeds on T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. It also has a 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Check out the full review.

Camera

The 5-megapixel camera seems really solid.

More memory

The phone comes with a 4GB microSD card preinstalled to go with its 4GB of internal storage. You can expand up to 32GB.

Camera test

I took all images using the automatic settings. While images have been resized, they're otherwise untouched. This indoor photo of a skylit room was taken from the floor above.

What's with the lighting?

The light sensor seems thrown off in this photo of CNET podcast producer extraordinaire Stephen Beacham.

Flowers

Colors look great in this outdoor shot, but I could use more detail on the flower petals themselves. This is probably a job for macro mode (photo taken on automatic settings).

This indoor shot drew a lot of one CNET copy editor's cubicle buddies into its orbit.

S-s-s-studio

This standard studio shot could definitely be sharper.
