    So minus the whole SprintID thing, how do they compare. Specs are very similar.

    3d graphics?

    Are any games "choppy"

    With the Intercept, on Angry Birds some of the graphics aren't visible and come up as blank white screen, is the Transform the same way?

    How's battery life (with GPS and WiFi off)?

    So far, when I have tested it with wifi and gps off, I have gotten a good 30 hours out of it. Mind you, I have 2 apps running.
    Biggest battery drainer is the Fancy Widget, which I turned off.

    The battery seems to be decent...Angry birds (damn addictive) runs smooth....checked gps status i was able to connect to 10 satellites within 2 seconds.

    In regards to Angry Birds: On level: 1. Poached Eggs> Section 2> Level 21. How does that level run? On the Intercept it's choppy as hell.

    I was contemplating the Intercept up until the Transform came out. Perhaps the biggest step up for the Transform is the screen resolution. At 480x320, that's 60% more pixels than the Intercept's 400x240. I'd heard some things that future Android features won't work on lower than 480x320 - not sure how true that is, but it's something to keep in mind. It will also affect the clarity/resolution of text, images, etc.

    Also, now that the Transform is the most recent "mid-range" Samsung phone on Sprint, I would expect updates to come out sooner and for longer into the future than the Intercept.

    My wife just switched from the moment to the transform...Angry birds does run a little smoother but the graphics are the same exact way they were. Any stationary brown items on each level show up as white!

    Ok hands down the Transform. I had the Intercept and that was the worst experience I have had.

    Good to know guys. I was going to get the intercept for my girlfriend this week but after reading this I'm thinking twice. Does froyo on the intercept help any of these issues at all?

    I have had the Intercept since the mid October 2010. What a great device, or so I thought. When I first got the phone it had Android 2.1 Elcair on it. I had a few apps and the default browser I was using was Dolphin HD. I had ZERO complaints.

    However, since recieving the 2.2 Froyo update, I am now on my 3rd intercept. I found a way to flash it back to the stock 2.1 but there is no way (that I could find) to not update the phone to 2.2.


    Intercept with 2.1 -- Great, Best phone I ever had.

    Intercept with 2.1 -- Crap, Worst phone I ever had.

    If the Intercept with 2.2 Froyo was my very first impression of Android I would have taken it back to the Sprint Store and probably went with a Blackberry.

    I am taking back my replacement device today an trading for a totally different one.

    Deeply sorry about your Froyo problems, trust me Froyo was made to make the phone so much better than 2.2 it just doesn't always turn out that way with Samsung devices :s
