Do you want to sell or trade your Samsung Galaxy S Relay?
Yes? Good, you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in or trade up.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
Being one of the few smartphones with a full QWERTY keyboard, you can say the Samsung Galaxy S Relay is sort of a rare species. While the price tag doesn’t reflect a rare commodity, the S Relay could be a gem for a select few.
Looking at the specs, the Galaxy S Relay is a mid-ranger phone. That’s even more evident by its cheap plastic body. While the material is cheap, the construction is robust, sturdy, and thick. Accompany that with rounded corners and soft material in the back, the S Relay feels sturdy as well as comfortable in hand.
The S Relay has a very nice 4-inch Super AMOLED display. It’s pumping out a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels with a pixel density of 233 PPI. Considering the age of this phone, the display is clear, bright, and the colors are vibrant even by today’s standards.
To reveal the full QWERTY keyboard, simply turn the phone 90-degrees to the left and push up. While the keyboard makes the S Relay a little chucky, you still get the best of both worlds. If you need to send a quick message, the touch screen will suffice. But the keyboard really shines when typing long messages or filling out online forms.
You’ll find the keys are very spacious. There’s enough room for a dedicated number row and a few punctuation keys. There’s also dedicated keys for launching voice commands, text, and email. If you prefer precision typing, you’ll love the responsive and tactile keyboard that the S Relay offers.
Other external features include a volume rocker on the left and a power button on the right. On the top, there’s a 3.5 mm headphone jack and the bottom has a micro-USB charging port. Behind the back cover, there’s a microSD card slot. It can add up to 32GB of expandable storage in addition to the 8GB memory onboard.
Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy S Relay is running the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As yummy as that sounds, the OS looks more like the much older Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, looks can be deceiving. The S Relay has all the functionality of Android 4.0.
Features include multiple account logins, Google apps and services, Maps Navigation, and a plethora of apps waiting to be downloaded at Google Play Store. There’s also Motion Support, which provides an unsalt of gesture actions. For example, you can place your phone face down to mute a call or pause multimedia from playing.
Other features include a music player, clock, calendar, and calculator. There’s also a host of third-party apps such as Facebook, Evernote, Dropbox, Lookout Security, Slacker Radio, and Telenav GPS navigator. Some Samsung apps include Media Hub and S Voice, which launches apps and system settings by voice command. It’s similar to Siri.
You can’t expect too much from a 5MP camera, so I’m not going to be harsh. For what it is, the camera takes decent shots. It’s barely good enough for casual photos. So don’t make the mistake of thinking the S Relay can replace a regular camera. But you'll still find the pictures satisfying enough. Some camera features include face tagging, smile shot, and panorama. You can also adjust resolution, white balance, and timer. And there’s plenty of effects and scene modes to toy around with.
Don’t even think about posting selfies on social media using the S Relay. The 1.3 MP selfie camera won’t do you any justice at all. However, the front camera is still useful for video chat. While the selfie camera is bad, the S Relay shoots pretty decent videos in 720p at 30 frames per second. The video quality is clear, sharp, and smooth.
To wrap things up, the call quality is best in class. Calls are crystal clear with no background noise, muffling, or distortion of any kind. This goes both for the earpiece and speakerphone. The best thing about the speakerphone is that the calls have a loud, clear, natural sound. There were practically no echos doing the call test.
Now that we got the review out of the way, let’s discuss your selling options.
There’s two available deals for your Samsung Galaxy S Relay. You can choose to:
Sell Samsung Galaxy S Relay for cash or
Trade in Galaxy S Relay
If you want cash return, this option is for you.
Preparing to sell your Samsung Galaxy S Relay is pretty easy. Just follow these steps:
● Transfer all your files to another device or an external storage device
● Make sure you remove all passwords and give access
● Restore your phone to factory settings
Done! That’s it.
Now you can sell your phone.
If you don’t want cash, you can trade in your Samsung Galaxy S Relay instead.
Just follow the same steps listed above.
When you finish completing the steps, trading your phone will be a cinch.
That pretty much wraps everything up.
Now it’s all up to you.
Will you sell your Samsung Galaxy S Relay for cash, or maybe you’ll like to trade it in for something else of your choosing?
Either way, make sure you get the best deals and services by using sites like Gimogo as a medium for trade.
