The Samsung Vitality has a 2G EVDO network supporting the following frequencies; 800, 1700, 2100 and 1900. In stark contrast to the Admire, full 3G functionality has been restored. The EVDO rev.A speeds are relatively fast, you also get the staples of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and of course microUSB 2.0.
The phone runs on a single core 800 MHz Qualcomm MSM7630 processor, with an Adreno 200 GPU and 215 MB of RAM. The fully accessible internal memory is capped at 200 MB. The phone has a decent amount of bloatware, most of it third-party, and very little from Cricket. Other than MuveMusic, MyAccount and Storefront, you are left in peace.
Now for the 3.2 MP camera, which is a bit better then the Admire's. Pictures still look like they've been taken in the middle of a fog, but the strong overpowering presence of the color white has vastly diminished. While the color bleeding effect is light and barely noticeable. Pictures turn out relatively sharp, with a good amount of detail. The variety of modes is still the same, you get three shooting resolutions, 4x zoom, scene modes, spot metering, five white-balance settings, color effects and geo-location. No flash.
Videos turn out nicely as well, they appear stable and with much less pixelation then before. You can shoot videos at 24 FPS (frames per second) in either MP4 or 3GP formats.
The excellent musical file support for the excellent Android stock player once again makes an appearance. As a recap the phone can play MP3, WMV, AC+, OGG and many others.
The video player once again can only handle 3GP, MP4 and M4V formats, at a maximum resolution of 640 x 480. Though you can leave several apps running in the background this time -- the video player can handle a good deal of stress.
As for pre-installed apps, you get -- ThinkFree Office which offers limited document viewing and editing options. Google Books, GTalk, Google Maps with voice navigation, YouTube, Google Places and finally Google Latitude.
