Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System

The Samsung Galaxy Reverb runs the Android 4.0 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.

The new Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to nine friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:

Face Unlock

You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).

And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.

Home Screen Folders

Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.

Multitasking

Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.

Voice Input

The new voice engine in Android 4.0 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

By S. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER on February 10, 2013
Virgin Mobile has always been a great value, delivering acceptable phones and service at a far lower total cost of ownership than the big contract carriers. Low cost coupled with much more flexible terms, from being contract-free, makes these carriers worthy of consideration for all cell phone consumers.

The downside to Virgin Mobile, is that the phones that they offer are always about a year behind the current, cutting edge offerings. This remains true, however being a year behind is mattering less and less now that smart phone technology is reaching a plateau. I'm not saying that the iPhone 5 is not better than the iPhone 4S, that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is not better than the Samsung Galaxy S2, or that 2012 HTC Evo 4G is not better than the 2010 version of the same phone. What I'm saying is that the improvements are far more nuanced now, in 2012, than they were in 2010 or earlier. Getting a phone with last year's technology is not as big of a deal now as it once was, especially when you look at the cost difference.

This phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 4G is obviously not the newest version of this phone available. If you want the very newest and best, you won't get that on Virgin Mobile or any other budget priced contract free carrier. It is however very adequate, and by far the best phone ever offered for this low of a total cost of ownership.

I have had six different Android phones on Virgin Mobile, including the HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Triumph, Optimus, etcetera. I bought this phone in November 2012 at Radio Shack, the day that it became available. I still have an HTC Evo 4G in our family, but personally have been using this phone for over a month now, quite heavily.

This Samsung Galaxy S2 4G runs Android 4.

I changed to this phone from the Motorola Triumph and it was a good choice. The triumph is a great phone, but this phone is superior in many ways. The screen's resolution shows more vibrant colors and the phone's processor is quite faster. Also, the picture quality is much higher on my new phone ( takes pictures as well as my actual camera!). The battery life is also about three times longer, which comes in handy when I'm away from the house all day. Overall, the phone is easy to use and worth the cost in the long run.

So a couple of weeks ago, I finally got fed-up with my old phone (the HTC EVO V 4G). It was laggy, the battery life was dreadful, and the camera on it--even though it was a 3D camera and claimed to be "high quality"--sucked. Heck, ONE scratch on the lens part of the camera made it so the flash function added a greenish hue to every picture I took; I could basically not use my flash. Just imagine my frustration, especially considering this happened just a couple of months after owning it.

What sucks is...when I bought this phone, the white, standard version of it was sold out, so I was forced to purchase the titanium version of it. Aside from the color, they're the exact same phone. Not too big of an issue, I guess.

After having the Galaxy S2 for a bit, I can honestly say that this is the best phone I've ever owned(inb4 "iPhones are the bestest!!1!") No, they are not. I own the latest generations of iPad and iPod Touch and I can honestly say that I hate the iOS platform with the burning, fiery passion of a thousand suns. But that's a conversation for another time.

I've owned several phones while being a member of Virgin Mobile - The Samsung Intercept, Motorola Triumph, Kyocera Rise, HTC EVO V, and now the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Since I've had it, not once have I had an issue with the battery draining rapidly, the screen ALWAYS moves as quickly as I swipe it with no input lag. This thing is basically--as numerous reviews I've seen say--a mini supercomputer. Plus since Jelly Bean is now out for the Virgin Mobile of the Galaxy S2, the phone is even better than it was before. What more could I ask for, aside from it turning into a Transformer and assisting me in taking over Earth?

I would definitely HIGHLY recommend this phone to those who are looking to purchase, especially if you're as tired as I was of scouring all over the place for the perfect Virgin Mobile phone.

This is the best phone Virgin has to offer at the moment. Was trying to wait for the SIII or something with Jelly Bean on it. But looks like Virgin taking their sweet (pun intended) time getting Android's latest OS.

The phone is a bit lighter than i thought it would be, but no denying it is a gorgeous piece of kit. Feels really solid in the hand, although the extra width is taking a of getting used to, feels like it wants to slip out of your hand.

The activation process was a bit more cumbersome than just turning on the phone and running the activation module, maybe because i was a current customer. Had to call Virgin customer support. The rep was professional and quick. Five minutes about all it took to get the activation completed. All my contacts and other android stuff was soon available.

The SII screen is wonderful, the extra real estate makes a huge difference. Have to reconsider getting a Kindle now, the kindle app renders content so clear, can hardly see needing another device to read ebooks on.

Still only a few days into owning this thing and my only complaints, so far, is the spottiness of the 4G coverage. This is what Virgin (Sprint) is charging you extra for, so needs to be much better.
