    I just got this phone yesterday. It is my first smartphone and I’m in love. It does everything and more that my 4th gen Ipod does (except has Android). Its super fast on the web and switching between applications. The camera seems good. The flash is blinding at night! Haven’t played with the video yet. I love how you can speak almost every command instead of typing. You can write a whole text message with your voice! The GPS is great too. And with Boost, everything is included in your plan so you don’t have to worry about data charges. The best thing for me though is being able to stream Pandor in my car! It’s a great phone! Buy it 🙂

    Best Android I’ve EVER Owned! (And LOVE the ‘Shrinkage’!), November 6, 2011

    I’m new to the prepaid world, but not new to smartphones. For years now I’ve been buying & selling Android & Apple phones on eBay to avoid renewing my contract with other carriers, all so I could have the latest and greatest gadget in my pocket. Preparing to pull that stunt once more, I decided instead this time to give Boost Mobile a try, and chose the new Samsung Transform Ultra. My expectations for a cheap phone on a prepaid carrier were low.

    To my absolute surprise, the Transform Ultra has so far proven to be the BEST Android handset I’ve ever owned (and just to be clear, in my case that means it beats out the MyTouch 4G Slide, G2, Droid 2, Droid 2 Global and LG Revolution).

    I think the biggest difference must be the Gingerbread operating system, as the one thing this phone does not do (and ALL of the others did) is crash constantly. But aside from that, the Transform Ultra is also surprisingly smooth & snappy, not laggy and frustrating like all the other Android’s I’ve owned. I was expecting less for such a cheap little phone. The keyboard is also awesome, especially for those (like me) that really, really prefer buttons: good layout and nice button feel (though I must say the space bar button is a little weird as you have to press down either side of it, not the center of it).

    There are some less than awesome aspects: Battery life, for instance, isn’t great, but I’ve yet to own a smartphone that didn’t require me to tote an extra battery around. The phone also feels just a little cheap overall, but then again: it was cheap. Finally, tapping and dragging (to rearrange icons on the home screen, for instance) doesn’t work well on mine. I suppose it’s also worth mentioning that Sprint’s 3G service isn’t exactly blazing fast.

    So there’s that. For me, an Android phone that doesn’t crash & force close, has a great keyboard and comes on a carrier that will drop my monthly bill by $5 every 6-months is a no brainer. I feel like such a sucker for having paid almost $100/month to those other carriers for much worse hardware.
