Experience ultra-fast 4G connectivity and the latest Android operating system without breaking the bank with the affordable Samsung Conquer from Sprint. Powered by a 1 GHz processor and the Android 2.3 OS (aka, "Gingerbread"), it also features Sprint ID--an intuitive way of customizing Android content. The sharp, beautiful 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen is perfect for playing 3D games and watching movies.
The affordable Android-powered
It runs on Sprint's expanding 4G network, offering simultaneous voice and data connectivity and download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, the phone can still connect to 3G data services in areas not currently served by Sprint's 4G network (learn more about Sprint's 4G network below).
The phone also includes Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking plus Mobile Hotspot capability for sharing your 3G/4G connection with up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously. The Conquer offers dual cameras--a 3.2-megapixel camera on the rear for capturing photos and video clips and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for on-the-go video chats over 4G and Wi-Fi connections. Upload, share, and store pictures with Photobucket, Facebook, MySpace and upload videos to YouTube.
Other features include a 2 GB microSD memory card (with expansion up to 32 GB via optional cards), Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, GPS for navigation via built-in Google Maps and location-based services, access to personal and corporate e-mail, and up to 6 hours of talk time (see full specifications below).
Android Gingerbread Operating System
The Conquer runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation. Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming email and then switch back to the game without losing your place.
A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The Conquer also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day, including Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps with Navigation, Google Calendar, Picasa, and YouTube. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.
Easy uploading to your favorite photo sharing sites.
The Samsung Conquer weighs 4.2 ounces and measures 4.57 x 2.38 x 0.46 inches. Its 1500 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 6 hours of talk time and 23 hours (9.5 days) of standby time. It runs on Sprint's 4G network as well as the 800/1900 CDMA/EV-DO Rev. A frequencies.

Top Customer Reviews
+ Perfect size
+ Hardly any pre-installed bloat (450MB of 512MB internal memory available upon first use, compared to ~300MB on the EVO, which had tons of crap pre-installed)
+ Good performance, almost identical to the EVO, which means it is responsive with no lag
+ Boots up VERY quick
+ Excellent build quality - the back side is a textured, almost rubberized-feeling plastic that provides great grip
+ Physical camera button
+ C H E A P !!!
Cons (pretty much echo what the expert reviews out there say)
- Screen resolution a bit too low. Colors are still great and the brightness is excellent, but you can definitely see some pixelation on smaller icons.
- Camera is only 3.2MP. This was not a huge issue for me, since I use a better digital cam for any pics that matter. And actually, I've found that if you tinker with the settings, this phone takes quite nice photos. The physical camera button has a half-press to focus feature, which adds to stability when taking shots.
The only other thing I'll mention, that is not a + or -, but just an observation, I had grown to like the HTC Sense interface.Read more ›
Start with the processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655. Just a year ago, users were exited to be the first to try it out. It's the same processor that powers the HTC Evo and Thunderbolt. Now, it is entry level, as all flagship phones run on dual core processors.
But regardless what processor a phone has inside, what matters is how it performs running multiple apps and services. The Conquer can handle it all. It doesn't have to run a graphics-intensive HD Super AMOLED screen, so it focuses on what's running in the background, and stays connected to the network. I am impressed with how much more accurate my location is in Google Maps/Latitude compared to a Sprint CDMA 3G phone. With Sprint's 4G network, my location as seen by others is more accurate. I am no longer being shown as being in a river or harbor.
Call quality is top notch. Headphone audio quality is also excellent. Put in a 32GB microSD card, and you might want to use this phone as your primary MP3/AAC music player. You'll have to charge it at your workplace if you do so.
The screen is plastic, but it is capacitive. That means it responds perfectly to your touch. Scrolling is smooth and accurate. You won't miss a glass screen, so long as you keep this phone in a pouch or bag pocket when not in use. Keep away from coins and keys, of course.
Sprint and Samsung worked together on a very smart feature - 4G auto sleep. If you're not downloading an app or web page, or uploading a photo to Google+ or Facebook, the phone switches off the 4G radio.Read more ›
+ Smaller size (same as iPhone) is more "pocketable" and easier to handle.
+ No lag on screens - very fast!
+ Plenty of reasonable priced accessories.
+ Camera is surprisingly good and autofocus works very well.
Battery life, as with all smartphones, could be better but I carry an extra battery. I have a nice Samsung charging stand that charges the spare battery out of the phone.
It took awhile before I could root the phone but a one click method became available and rooting was dirt simple.
After 5 months I'm still very pleased with this phone. Not sure if it will be upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich but I'll hang on to this till it's time to upgrade to Sprint's LTE network.
