    Excellent Upgrade 0

    Excellent upgrade on VM/Sprint’s 4G LTE Network I recently got tired of listening to my wife complain about how slow the VM/Sprint network was, and about how she couldn’t get service inside of her work (a metal building). We both have Evo V 4Gs and I’ve been mostly pleased with mine, and she liked hers except for the service, but for her the service was a killer. She was about to go out and get an on-contract phone from one of the big carriers, and she was prepared to spend alot of money on it. We have been on VM for a couple of years now and I’ve been fairly pleased (impossible to beat the value, IMHO) and I really didn’t want her getting tied up in a contract with a phone that would end up being obsolete halfway through the contract. And then I saw the new Galaxy Victory using Sprint’s 4G LTE network. I did a little research and found that they have 4G service in our area and are currently upgrading their network, so I went ahead and got her this one as a gift…She loves it. It solves all of the problems she was having with the 3G service. We have Wimax in our area too but there is simply no comparison between the 4G LTE and the 4G Wimax (with the Evos), much less 3G. The 4G LTE works in her work building, the Wimax doesn’t, and the 3G is slow there. Using the Speedtest app I have been able to consistently clock in anywhere from 12-17 mbps download speed with the Galaxy Victory, and I haven’t found a spot yet in our city that doesn’t get 4G. In comparison, the Evo V 4G maxed out at 7.7 mbps, with typical speeds in the 2-3 mbps range. Page loading isn’t instant on either device, but it is VERY fast on the Victory, usually anywhere from 2-5 seconds. The Wimax is much better than 3G obviously, but coverage is very spotty and unreliable, and it gets blown out by the 4G LTE. Typical 3G speeds in my area were usually about 300-500 kbps, so the 4G LTE is typically anywhere from 25 to 60 times as fast as 3G. There is no comparison, and it is immediately noticeable. The 4G LTE just takes it to a whole new level.The phone itself is snappy enough with 1GB of RAM and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Not top of the line but certainly fast enough for anything short of very high-end gaming. The onboard storage is a bit thin at 4GB with only about 1.7GB of user storage, but it does have a microSD slot and with a 32GB card in there (cheap nowadays) there is plenty of room. Note that Apps2SD doesn’t work on it, so you really are limited to that 1.7GB for your apps. But it should be plenty of space for the large majority of users. Just get a storage card for your music, movies, pics etc and leave the phone storage for apps and you will be GTG.The GPS seems perfectly adequate. It was able to acquire a fix within about 5-7 seconds consistently, and with 4G the maps load very fast. It gets a fix indoors fairly quickly as well. GPS Status app showed me getting 17 satellites indoors in an upstairs room when I checked it.The camera is nothing to write home about, but it’s not terrible either. Seems to be a bit picky about what sort of light it takes pics in. With adequate light the pictures come out clear and fairly crisp, in a dim room the flash, while illuminating enough to get a picture, seems to blur things a bit. The camera is perfectly functional and pics are usually decent, but if you’re buying a phone for a great camera look elsewhere. (ETA – a little more playing around with the camera and I am more impressed; while still not a great camera it is definitely serviceable. It does have about a 2-3 second shutter delay though, my only real gripe). If you want a great camera then you probably ought to be reading reviews for cameras…Call quality sounded really bad the first phone call I made, but after that it sounds just fine. I had read about that same phenomenon in a review somewhere, but it seems a problem with activation or adjustment, and it resolved itself almost immediately. I can hear others fine and they can hear me fine. Also, the speakers sound perfectly fine (for phone speakers) and I have not experienced any problems with audio quality as reported in another review.The phone comes loaded with Jellybean, Android 4.1.2 OS. If you’ve used ICS then you will be right at home with Jellybean, and it seems to run a bit smoother. With Jellybean and 4G LTE this phone is pretty much future proof (as much as any phone can be, I guess), so no need to worry about it quickly becoming obsolete, it will be GTG for at least a year or so, probably longer. Having Google Now and S Voice (slightly redundant) are nice, too, and the S Beam / NFC is neat if you know someone with a compatible phone.My wife and I both prefer smaller phones. I am not at all interested in carrying around one of those little tablets that they call phones nowadays like the Victory’s larger cousins, and I prefer something iPhone-sized without the Apple in it. The Victory is perfectly sized. The 4.0″ screen is just large…
