The Samsung Galaxy Admire 2 is a fine little phone. The hardware is the thinnest or lightest, nor of the highest quality, but the Admire 2 offers a lot for the money. It is well put together and has a classy look with plenty of appeal. I found the screen to be pleasantly surprising, and voice quality over Cricket's network was quite good. Battery life was also impressive.

I like the Samsung Galaxy Axiom's design, battery life, and price -- all positive traits that make me inclined to recommend the phone to the carrier's customers. However, the Android 4.0 smartphone's two biggest deal-breakers for me -- the call quality and data performance -- are still in the air as far as I'm concerned, since I wasn't able to truly test them in the carrier's own realm.
