Samsung Admire (MetroPCS)

Phones
-Hi, Kent German, section editor for cnet.com. Today, we'll take a first look at the Samsung Admire. The Admire is a new phone for Metro PCS. It's a pretty simple design. It's basically user friendly, functional, but this is gonna have a lot of really high end features. One thing you there, however, is the phone didn't have the best audio quality. Audio tend to cut up a little bit if time. So, you really have trouble hearing me. So, it doesn't have the best audio quality, but let's get down to the design. As I said, it is pretty simple. It does have this red texture here on the sides, It gives it a bit of a comfortable feeling in the hand, also there's a bit a texture on the back. I wouldn't wanna drop this phone a lot of times on a hard surface. The phone is little heavier than it looks, a little over 4 ounces, dimensions are pretty average. So, looks easily in a pocket or back or anything like that. It does have home screens that of course you can customize in usual android fashion. The phone is running Gingerbread, so that's a nice phone especially on a basic phone like this just came out, but it is good to have all the features of Gingerbread. Down below, we have 4 physical controls. These are to use. They are tactile. I could feel it. So, you could find them by feel. On the back, there's a 3.2-megapixel camera lens and a small speaker. The speaker doesn't have the best output. It made the speakerphone kind of unusable app choice especially when is resting like this and the music quality on an external speaker is pretty poor, so you definitely wanna use headsets when you're talking about listening to music. Now, the phone has all the basic features you should expect from and android phone as I said, although it does have a couple of extras. This is the first device that we've seen from Metro PCS that comes with access to the carries new rhapsody unlimited music service. So, you get unlimited access to almost all of rhapsody's catalogue. It is free, but it does require Metro PCS at $60 per month unlimited data and calling plan. So, keep that in mind. Another unique feature this phone has is Metro PCS has virtual card service. Once you sign up, there's no minimum and it should be pretty easy to manage. So, all in all, I think the phone has a lot to offer as far as features go. The design is user friendly, but I just with that call quality was just a little bit better. I'm Kent German and this is Samsung Admire for Metro PCS.
