Website Reviews: 

"The Samsung Transform has the potential to be a solid Android device at $50 or perhaps even $100 if the issues get ironed out, but we can't imagine paying the $150 Sprint's presently asking for a buggy, hamstrung HVGA smartphone. As it stands the phone has the price, bullet points and styling to deceive customers into thinking they're getting something akin to an cheaper Galaxy S experience -- even if that isn't Sprint's intent -- but in its current state it's much, much farther than $50 behind the current crop of $200 smartphones, and we honestly believe you'd be better off saving those pennies rather than buying something you might regret."

"With midrange features, the Samsung Transform is a solid choice for an Android smartphone. Clear call quality is a bonus, but the Sprint ID profile service isn't for everyone."

CNET, October 2010

"The Samsung Transform is best suited for those with multiple personality disorders, or anyone who likes to alter their mood within the mobile landscape. It's one of the first phones to highlight Sprint IDs, which are specified profiles that suit the type of mood one happens to be in, like Entertainment, Business, Navigation, and more. The Samsung Transform is also a hardcore social networking device, which we feel is its prime characteristic. The Transform has a front-facing camera for video chat, 3.2-megapixel main camera, awesomely roomy slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.1, and a few other hot traits that we'll get to later on. If you don't live near a 4G zone or just don't need the power of an Epic 4G or EVO 4G, then the Samsung Transform might be your ticket."

Info Synch, December 2010

"The Samsung Transform falls short of what I would wish for in a mid-range Android phone, mainly because of the software’s roughness around the corners. There are just too many good low to mid-range Android phones out there to consider a phone that right off the bat seems a bit slow and unpolished."
