Unlock Samsung Galaxy Avant
Unlock Samsung Galaxy Avant – Prepare to be unimpressed by this phone’s standard specs but pleasantly surprised by its amazing prize. Also known as “T-mobile’s (almost) free phone with kitkat” the Samsung Galaxy Avant is Samsung’s latest release in the affordable segment on the market for people looking to get the latest android version, and all of the main features of a modern smartphone, at almost no cost: If you get it with a contract, the first month it’s 0 dollars, the following will be $9 for the 2 year usual deal. The unlocked version is $216.
With a screen size of 4.5 inches, qHD resolution (540×960 pixels at 245ppi) this phone is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini
, or maybe you can think of it as a slightly modified version of the Galaxy Core LTE (SM-G386F)
. Perhaps is so similar it’s hard to tell what’s different. Maybe the software, because you won’t be checking for updates franticly with this one as it already comes with Google’s latest operating system, Android Kitkat 4.4. Of course, Samsung always includes its launcher on top of it, Touchwiz, so if you have been using a Samsung phone you’ll feel right at home.
The design carries everything over from the Galaxy line: the screen takes all of the front space. Over at the top, Samsung’s logo and the speaker’s grill. Next to it, the front facing camera for video conferencing and, of course, those selfies. On the bottom center, the physical home button, surrounded by the menu and back buttons. This are capacitive, not software. On the back, a modest 5 megapixel main camera capable of recording 720p HD video, aided with an LED flash, the loudspeaker and samsung’s logo again. On the left side, the volume rocker. On the right side, the sleep-wake button. On the top, the standard headphone jack and at the bottom the usual micro usb for charging its 2100 mAh battery.
On the inside an NFC chip, and FM radio. The main processor is a 1.2GHz unnamed chip, and the RAM amounts to 1.5 GB, not bad. Internal flash memory is 16GB, again, nothing wrong with it and it has a micro HD slot, which is great.
This is a 4G LTE Phone so you have the latest cell connectivity with great network speeds too. It also has T-mobile Wifi Calling technology, so that’s nice.
All in all this is a standard phone that can do everything a phone needs to do without any glaring omission and even with a few nice touches that will tell you “hey, you saved money AND you got LTE and NFC. What the heck, they throwed in FM radio too”. So even though the screen’s resolution isn’t super sharp and even though you have a very limited camera, you still have a fairly powerful phone that will disappear in your pocket and feel comfortable in your hand. To put it simply, you won’t be impressed and you won’t be disappointed.
