Phone manufacturers are realizing many people love having a physical keyboard and there are very slim pickings of full QWERTY keyboard smart phones on the market now. The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G is a fast, power-packed phone with a 5-row QWERTY keyboard. The Relay 4G measures 4.96 by 2.56 by 0.53 inches, has a soft-touch finish and curved corners, with the result being a comfortable, compact phone that easily fits in a pocket. The keyboard makes the phone a little thicker than the fully digital smart phones, however, it's not that much of a difference. The 4-inch display has 480x800 pixel resolution Super AMOLED and looks great. For a mid-range phone it has exceptional detail, color saturation and viewing angles.

The Relay 4G runs on the T-Mobile 4G LTE network and combine that 4G speed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8260A dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, it loads web pages and apps extremely fast. It runs on Android ICS, but still has the capacitive back and menu button on the bottom, as well as a physical home button. The physical capacitive buttons on the below the screen were taken away with ICS and it's nice to see manufacturers bringing them back again. The Relay 4G also has an NFC chip, a 5 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, MHL adapter, Wi-Fi hot spot, and Wi-Fi calling.
