I like the Samsung Transform. I think it’s a good solid phone with a great keyboard, great sound quality, and very good battery life.

Samsung Transform from SprintThis device has a good screen and is responsive enough, but it falls short in the entertainment area, specifically with grainy video quality, an underwhelming external speaker, and a weak camera with poor quality zoom.

Its current price of $150 after rebate is slightly high, but not too bad.

The Transform is a good choice for someone who is more phone-centric, who talks (and texts) a lot, and needs excellent voice quality and a great keyboard. If you want a media powerhouse, though, the Transform probably isn’t the device for you.


  • Excellent call quality
  • Very good battery life
  • Excellent keyboard
  • Google Maps Navigation is solid and a pleasure to use


  • Somewhat thicker and heavier than comparable phones
  • Barely adequate camera with poor quality zoom
  • Underwhelming external speaker
  • No bundled microSD memory card
