I have a confession to make that will shock most of you that think of me a tech savvy blogger- my phone is dumb! No, seriously- I haven’t upgraded to a smart phone yet which is why I was so excited to be able to review a top of the line smartphone from Sprint.
Sprint Force Review:
The Sprint Force features Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 4-inch WVGA 480×800 touchscreen display that keeps the user connected, entertained and productive. Offering access to the Sprint 4G LTE network, Sprint Force offers a rich Web browsing experience.
So there it is in Sprint hi tech lingo! Let me give it to you in easy to understand terms. I found that the Sprint Force was very much like using my iPad except the screen was a smaller and I could call people on it!
Let me tell you what I liked about the Sprint Force:
- The Screen: It was large, the images are very clear, and the color is great!
- The Camera: I guess I should say cameras since Sprint Force has dual cameras. The 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto-focus, LED flash and video capture takes great quality photos. Not only that but I can actually get them off of my camera by just plugging in into the computer with the same cord I use to charge my phone (by just detaching the electric box from the cord). This is a huge innovation to someone still using a not smartphone like me and it means you always have a real usable camera on you for good quality photos you can get onto your computer and develop if you want to. Plus, the Sprint Force a 1-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat- I remember when that was such a futuristic idea! LOL
- Scout GPS Navigation: This came in handy a few times. I just typed in my destination and it found it super quick and gave me voice directions as I went and showed a map too. Loved that!
- Useful Apps: I loved having the weather for the week right at my fingertip. I didn’t even have to type in weather.com and go searching for the day- I just hit the weather icon app and it shows the week for me on the screen! I also made good use of the gmail and twitter app.
- Fun Apps: My daughter hopped right onto Google Play™ and with more than 600,000 apps, millions of songs and books, and thousands of movies she found plenty of stuff to entertain her on the two hour drive to grandma’s house.
To sum it all up, I enjoyed the smartphone experience. It really is so much more than a phone. It helped me do biz away from home, provided entertainment for my kids, helped me get places, and let me take great photos when I didn’t think to bring my camera. I was impressed by the Sprint Force to say the least!

I was provided with a Sprint Force to use in the hopes that I would share my honest opinions. I received no monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
