Samsung Intercept Review

Samsung Intercept is a Sprint carrier with the Android OS. Sprint had released 3 other Android phones in the recent past – Samsung Moment, HTC Hero and HTC EVO 4G. These smartphones were premium devices. However, the Samsung Intercept is a mid-range phone. It feels good to hold this phone as it weighs only 139g and measures 113 x 56 x 15 mm. The TFT touchscreen display of the phone measures 3.2 inches and has a display resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and is capable of displaying 65k colors. It has also got accelerometer feature for automatically rotating the phone when you hold it horizontally or vertically.

Below the display of the Samsung Intercept are present four capactive keys. There is an optical joystick as well as send and end physical buttons. On the right side of the phone, you 3.5mm audio jack and the camera key whereas the on the left side you can find the volume controller and the microSD sot. The microUSB charging port is located at the top. The 3.2 megapixel camera is located at the rear. At the bottom, you can find the speaker.

When you slide the display of the phone in a horizontal manner, you will be able to make use of the four-row QWERTY keyboard.  The size of the keys is big enough and is very user-friendly. The phone runs on 800Mhz processor but we noticed lagged many times during the usage. The Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 is powered with Android 2.1 and its notification drawer gives you quick access to WLAN, Bluetooth, Silent and Vibrate mode. The phonebook allows you to integrate contacts with famous social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Other apps present on the phone include document viewer, YouTube, barcode scanner, Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, etc.

The phone supports playback of XviD files but failed to play DivX files. The music player is nothing special and the sound through the loudspeaker and earphone is okay. The 3.2 megapixel camera without flash fails to take good images in the low lighting conditions. However, when there is good light, the images are bright and clear. The Dolphin Browser HD present on Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 is a full-featured browser and is very easy to use.  You can connect to the web on 3G Rev.0 which gives a speed of 153.2kbps. The stand-by time of the standard Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery is up to 300 hours and it gives a talk time of over 5 hours.

  1. Whatever you do: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!! It’s a rip off no matter how much you pay for it. It’s the worst droid in the market for sure! I regret immensely: Bad pictures, bad call/sound quality, no battery life, terrible phone set up; unresponsive screen; sluggish to say the very list… and the list goes on… Bottom line: not worth it! Samsung should either recall it or refund the user’s money!!! What a shame.

  2. Worst phone I have ever owned in my life. Battery lasts about 2 hours max on a good day. That’s with normal use and wifi off. This is the 3rd Intercept I have exchanged and they are all terrible.

    Very slow processor and very unresponsive. Locks up constantly and has to be rebooted. This phone shouldn’t even be considered a smart phone or in the category with other droids. It is pretty sad when you have to recharge your phone every 2 hours throughout the day just to use it.

    I have owned $7.00 cell phones that worked better than the Intercept. Also I can’t count how many times this phone has just turned itself off in the middle of a call with a full battery. All 3 of my Intercepts have done that, so I know it’s a common problem with this phone and not just the one that I own.

    Sometimes you have to push a button 3 or 4 times before it responds. When you slide or drag the window there is always a delay and it stops constantly. This phone has the worst internal storage and memory around. At least half of the apps from the Droid market malfunction on this phone. On a normal day this phone will freeze up on me anywhere from 5-15 times, to the point that I have to open the back to take the battery out before I can restart.

    I really wanted to like this phone, but as it turns out, it’s by far the worst phone I’ve ever used. To say it is frustrating is an understatement. The problem is its poor response. Frequently during daily use it is unresponsive. Especially after a phone call. It might take up to twenty seconds for the controls to respond. This is not acceptable!

    I am a certified computer technician. I work on and repair all makes and models of computers. I embrace technology and understand it. But I will never understand this phone! I have no interest in “rooting” it either. It should just work….but it does not. And please don’t tell me I have “too many programs installed.” I don’t have any. In fact, I’ve done a hard reset on this phone-twice-running only the factory installed programs and STILL it is totally unresponsive.

    I also find no correlation between what is running in the background and how the phone behaves. Every time I use the device I clear out whatever programs I’m not using at the moment. But it seems this does not make a difference. The phone has a mind of its own and it will behave any way it wants to, RAM or no RAM

    If you go to cnet reviews you will see that over 80% of all the genuine reviews for this phone have 1 star or less. Samsung should be sued and should be put out of business for passing off a phone as bad as this to the consumer. BUYER BEWARE: If you do buy this phone it only comes with a 30 day warranty and everything will work great until the second month you own it……..TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT

    I regret buying this phone. But I’ll keep it until my carrier comes out with another model that I like, then I’m gonna just trash the Intercept. I don’t have the heart to sell it to someone else.”

    Pros: makes a good paperweight.
