Samsung Galaxy Reverb Available for Pre-Order on Verizon from August 29

August 23, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The mobile world is filled with handsets that come contract-free. The latest one to join the fray is the feature-rich but moderately-priced Samsung Galaxy Reverb, which will be rolled out from Virgin Mobile.

With a price tag of $250 with no contract, pre-order for this baby is set to start from August 29.

Like its brothers in the industry, the phone runs Android 4.0 and is powered by a 1.4GHz CPU. It also offers a 5-megapixel camera and a 4-inch touchscreen. In addition, there is also a 1.3-megapixel front imaging sensor and 4GB of internal memory.

The Samsung Galaxy Reverb is a close match to the HTC One V. Both phones come with Android 4.0 ICS, S2 CPUs (though the One V uses a slower 1GHz chip), and smaller screens compared with other monsters on the market. The only demerit that can be attributed to the phone is the plastic construction that feels not worthy.

The Samsung’s AMOLED display has much better contrast. Of course the One V’s lower $199.99 sticker price is a good argument to choosing HTC’s device over the Galaxy Reverb.

With Bluetooth 4.0 managing the file sharing aspects nifty, this device features three buttons on board, just like the Galaxy S III. The 768 MB RAM accompanied by 4GB of ROM offers sufficient support for carrying out operations at a reasonable speed. The handset features a touchscreen display of 4-inch with WVGA resolution just like the LG Cayenne.

Considering all the aspects of this phone do you think it’s worth every dime it costs? Do let us know.
