    Samsung Galaxy Prevail doesn’t have too impressive specifications, but you will definitely like this handset. It offers CDMA2000 1x 3G network with a speed of 2.4 Mbps. The Bluetooth connectivity is v3.0 in the Galaxy Prevail with A2DP as well. Disappointingly though, Prevail doesn’t support WiFi connectivity.

    Coming in just Obsidian Black colour, Samsung Galaxy Prevail has a great 3.2 inch display; with 320 x 480 pixels screen size and good quality, retaining the reputation of the displays in Samsung Galaxy series handsets. Even with low end specifications, the User interface in the handset is pretty responsive. The performance is decent and pretty cool for its price.

    All it lacks is a secondary camera, WiFi, and poor video quality for the 2MP primary camera. The video codec support is also limited and video quality is not that impressive, although you will have a positive opinion about the image quality. Samsung Galaxy Prevail can be yours for an affordable price of Rs 10,000/- approximately.
