Samsung Vitality SCH-r720 (Cricket Wireless)

The Good The Samsung Vitality is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread device with a good size touch screen and Cricket's signature Muve Music music-access plan.

The Bad Low audio and speakerphone volume make it harder to talk. The Muve Music microSD card leaves little space for photos and video. Battery life is also rather poor.

The Bottom Line The Samsung Vitality is a competitive midrange Android smartphone that complements Muve Music's potential.

The experimental plan was great in theory, but it debuted on the chunky and unremarkable Samsung Suede, and ran into launch delays.
