Review of the Samsung Conquer 4G – Sprint! – The Samsung Conquer 4G is the 25th 4G device to hit the market. But that’s not what makes it notable. It also is the only 4G Smartphone so for to be launched at a price tag lower than $100. This price is almost half of the other 4G devices that begin at $200. As expected with the budget price tag come some necessary trade-offs. The screen has lower resolution and the processor is single core. But in spite of that the Samsung Conquer 4G is pretty well stacked with features and the Android Smartphone is an unbelievable value for money. If you want 4G speeds without having to spend a fortune on the phone this is the cell phone for you.

Unlike the other 4G devices by Sprint, the Samsung Conquer 4G sports a lightweight design. Its dimensions are 4.57 X 2.38 inches and it is .46 inch in thickness. The medium size is a nice feeling instead of the heavy touch screen devices or the extremely small phones. The cell phone also offers support for pinch to zoom and an accelerometer that is built-in. It has a swipe keyboard which is extremely responsive. The navigation is smooth. You can also customize the UI by using SprintID.

Physical Features of the Samsung Conquer 4G

Some physical buttons are available for menu, back, search and home functions. The volume rocker is on the phone’s left side and the camera activation and capture button is on the right. Main camera is in the back and there is another smaller one of 1.3 MP on the front. You get a memory space for 32 GB with micro SD card. The phone is also compatible with Wi-Fi, has Bluetooth and also has a USB port. The CPU is 1 GHz processor. You also get various messaging facilities such as IM, Push Email, Email, SMS and MMs. The Samsung Conquer 4G uses a standard battery.

Summary of the Samsung Conquer 4G

The best part is that the Samsung Conquer 4G is quite inexpensive while offering 4G capabilities. Another advantage is the 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and a front facing camera that allows video calling. You can also get the mobile hot spot capability. On the negative side it has a lower screen resolution. Camera and speaker quality is also poor. So, if you are willing to sacrifice some high-end features, you will get the 4G experience at an affordable price.

The Samsung Conquer is going to be a very popular phone, mostly because it is a less expensive phone, but it is still snappy and has 4G. I know that because it runs on Android, there are thousands of apps that can be downloaded. I am a big movie person, so being able to stream is a must. The app that I use on my Galaxy S is the DISH Remote Access app. I love this app because it lets me stream live TV and recorded shows from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver to my phone anywhere I am. As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using the DISH Remote Access app for a long time and I know it will work wonders on the Conquer!

Good post! The specs for this phone look great, but like you said it is a more affordable option so isn’t as good as other smartphones. I love Android phones, they do everything that an iPhone phone can do as far as I can tell.

Gustavo, while it’s great that they offer the 4g capabilities surely in this day and age a better camera should be standard. Although for $100 not a bad phone to have around for the clumsy.

I agree with you Peter. But I believe that the Samsung Conquer 4G is intended more for people looking for something simple.

I know quite a few people that would rather bring the old dull phones back and rather not care about all the smartphones buzz going on these days.
