One more budget android phone, this time for our friends at MetroPCS. Called the Samsung Admire, code SCH-720R, it packs in a decent 800 MHz processor and comes with 3.5 inch WVGA screen, Android 2.3 gingerbread with Samsung’s own UI TouchWiz v3 atop it, 3.2 megapixel camera (no front facing camera), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, etc. That spec-sheet on Android would generally cost you around $300 and it should be no different here too but sadly, we don’t have the official word on costing right now. And if 2 yr deal is what you want, we guess $80-100 is what MetroPCS would burden on your credit card, which is fine.
Samsung Admire just got a pic leaked (above) so those who were planning an entry level android phone on MetroPCS now have visualization too to support their want. We’ll say, spec-sheet is cool for the price you’ll pay.
Fun fact, the 3.5 inch phones on Android are the budget ones, which is what iPhone offers you! Agreed, the other items of the spec-sheet are inferior to iPhone but anyway, Samsung’s challenge to Apple lies in 4.3 incher Super AMOLED Plus display and 1.2 GHz dual-core processor boasting super phone, Galaxy S 2, not the Admire!
