The good: The Samsung Intercept is a solid first foray for Virgin Mobile into Android territory. The phone brings with it a 3.2-megapixel camera, a great QWERTY keyboard, 32GB expandable memory, and the Android 2.1 OS.
The bad: Photo quality on the Intercept could be stronger, the screen could be larger, and the dimensions could be sleeker. We found the optical touch pad too small to be truly useful.
The bottom line: The Samsung Intercept is one of the most advanced and priciest phones for Virgin Mobile, but it's an excellent addition to the carrier's lineup.
