MetroPCS gets slightly upgraded Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G

For MetroPCS and Samsung, it was time for an upgrade. Last year they launched the Samsung Admire, a value-based Android handset that was targeted for the back-to-school market. Yesterday they announced the release of the sequel, and it gets a few upgrade. The first comes in name, where the Samsung Admire becomes the Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G. The name begets the 4G LTE upgrade. Also along the ride is the processor, which gets a boost to 1GHz, and the screen, which is a slightly bigger 3.65 inches. It is also compatible with Joyn. The Admire 4G is nothing that will blow you out of the water, but it can still provide value given its price of $169. It is available on MetroPCS’s website and retailers nationwide.

    So sad Samsung I thought you were better than this. The only thing worse than the call quality is Metro PCS’s “customer service.” I tried to use this phone to start a contract with Metro but after many attempts trying to call them (while in the middle of a city that is supposed to have excellent coverage) I could not activate the phone. The calls were either to broken up to hear the person or the volume (even turned all the way up) was to low for me to hear the other person and they could barely hear me. To make matters worse Metro has no exchange policy. I discovered this after being sent to their corporate store to be talked down to by the manager where they sent me to the web address that was on the receipt of my online order. That website did not exist either. I finally I was allowed to talk to their internet department who told me there was no exchange policy but they would have a customer service agent call me back. After 3 days they have not even done this. In summary stay away from Metro but more importantly don’t waste your money on this phone! Samsung should be ashamed they normally put out quality products.

    For those in the Know & For Those Who want to Know,WHY WOULD SAMSUNG & METRO PCS DROP ATTAIN SCH-R920 iF IT WAS NOT BANNED?OR was it considered a POTENTIAL THREAT to Galaxy S3? “‘There are two things to consider when buying any phone: the handset itself, and the network to which it’s tied. For 200 bucks, the Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G is a pretty nice package for a midtier Android phone: it looks pretty good, it has two decent cameras, all the Android perks, and 4G LTE support’”,per Jessica Dohlcourt ,Senior Writer C-Net.Not Mentioned is the REALLY GOOD HD PLAYBACK RESOLUTION(800X480P)Why Would they Drop this phone like a hotrock unless it is Either Banned by Apple OR it was Dropped to Protect Galaxy S3 Which is $500.00 Plus,REMOVE THE COMPETITION??!!!!! Would SOMEONE “WHO KNOWS”, SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS VERY DISTURBING SUBJECT?
