The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G offers a pretty 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, Android Gingerbread, a solid 5-megapixel camera, a speedy 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and T-Mobile's faster HSPA+ 42 speeds. We found call quality was also quite good.
The Galaxy S Lightray 4G is big and bulky and has a slow processor and old Android OS. Its Dyle TV service offers only four channels.
Questionable display, loads of preinstalled apps
Display not the sharpest; Heavy on T-Mobile apps and widgets; Lacks HDMI output
Lackluster 720p video recording, Running Gingerbread out of the box
Cannot remove many preinstalled apps, No Ice Cream Sandwich.
Too much preloaded crapware, Older version of Android
The Blaze 4G's promised data speeds didn't always deliver during tests, and the chassis looks a little plain.
