Samsung Galaxy Reverb (Virgin Mobile)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Reverb is a solid midrange Android smartphone for Virgin Mobile, but it's a little too expensive for what you get.

Nice display. Runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Good battery life.

No 4G. Average processor. Price is a little too high.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The Galaxy Reverb comes with 1.95GB of free internal storage, along with an empty microSD card slot on the left side of the phone. My 32 and 64GB SanDisk cards worked fine, and the phone is compatible with a large...

Samsung Galaxy Reverb (Virgin Mobile) review

 

Samsung's $249.99 Galaxy Reverb is hard proof that smartphone options on prepaid carriers are getting better every day. Sold by Virgin Mobile as its current Android flagship, the compact handset features a good-size 4-inch screen, a nimble camera that...

The Samsung Galaxy Reverb is compact, has long battery life, Android 4.0, and packs a removable battery.

Clad in plastic, the Galaxy Reverb's design is far from luxurious and its lack of 4G is a letdown.

If it wasn't for the HTC One V, the long-lasting Samsung Galaxy Reverb would be Virgin Mobile’s best Android smartphone.

"Oh man, what a disappointment!"

 

AWFUL...DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Nice pictures.

battery lasts maybe, if I am lucky, 4 hours. apps close on their own, not the apps, they work fine on my 3 year old Samsung Captivate! old phone works much better! Blank screen happens too often! No problem with Virgin Mobile service.

"Worthless phone and worthless company."

 

I wish I didn't waste my money on this phone. I will be buying something from another company once I can afford to. I have read tons of reviews about samsung's terrible camera's. I had a 5mp camera on a HTC phone which was 20 times better than the 5MP...

You can make calls.

Phone is dead by lunch. Back light stays on constantly. The camera is worthless, actually goes out of focus when trying to do a mobile check deposit. Samsung just wants to reset everything as their way of helping. Avoid!!

"Awesome phone - I love it!"

 

I tried the pitiful HTC EVO V 4G before this one. I previously had the EVO 3D through Sprint and loved that phone. Whatever happened to it in the transition really messed it up. The only way to make the errors go away was to alter the phone, and I...

Easy to understand, fast, vivid picture, changeable fonts, I love everything about this phone.

Touchscreen keyboard is somewhat small, not a dealbreaker. No audible reminder notification area to remind you of voicemails/messages (except for the emergency messages). There is an LED light however. Need better, tougher case.

"Pretty good phone for the price $99."

 

A pretty good phone for the price of $99 but really wish I could power the screen on from the home button.

Beautiful display, good cameras, pretty fast.

Power button to screen on, can't store apps on the SD care, customer service issues, mobile ID pack, text bubbles.
