Samsung SPH-M900


The phone features a 3.2-inch 16M-color AMOLED capacitive touch screen and a 3.2 Megapixel autofocus camera. Compared to Sprint's version of the HTC Hero, the device offers a left-sliding QWERTY Keyboard with Search Key and four-way navigation with arrow keys, faster processor and more available user-accessible memory. Opposed to the HTC Hero, the device comes with two cons: the battery is lower capacity, and the touch screen does not offer multi-touch support on the hardware level.

Software-wise, the Moment offers a suite of Mobile Google services, including Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Calendar, and Google Talk. Samsung added Moxier Mail (POP/IMAP Support, Microsoft Exchange access) and Nuance VoiceControl as added-value software to the default Android 1.5 build, but otherwise, the phone is identical to the T-Mobile G1's interface (Android desktop with no modifications.) Carrier provided apps include NFL Mobile, NASCAR Sprint Cup, Sprint Navigation, & Sprint TV.

A custom version of the Samsung Moment was released to the Washington, D.C./Delaware metro area with Mobile TV reception: a pilot program of the Mobile ATSC standard is underway in that community, and the Samsung Moment was modified to include a Mobile TV antenna and external jack for an exterior antenna. At this time, this version of the Moment is exclusive to this Public Field Test.

Originally running Android 1.5 (Cupcake), as of May 2010, an official update to Android 2.1 (Eclair) has been made available via Sprint's Web Site. As of June 25, Sprint announced via Twitter that they will not be upgrading either the Moment or the HTC Hero to Android 2.2 (Froyo). Currently, JIT from Android 2.2 (Froyo) has been ported to the Samsung Moment and Spica by Antibyte of Samdroid.

A working Android 2.2 (Froyo) kernel and multiple ROMs have successfully been ported to the Moment via a collaborative effort at SDX Developers.

As of the latest Android 2.1 build DJ07, the Samsung Moment, the Samsung Intercept, and the Samsung Transform (all based on the same SoC) do not include support for OpenGL ES 1.1 or 2.0 (in Android 2.2) despite hardware support for it. A community led complete rewrite of the g3d drivers is in development. Samsung Moment and Intercept users have also been reporting issues of data and airplane mode lock up over the CDMA network while using various browsers, streaming software such as Youtube and Pandora, and even randomly for seemingly no reason. The data/airplane mode lock up also prevents making voice calls and forces user to restart the phone to have connections restored. Enabling wifi radio while using CDMA network makes the issue more frequent. GPS has also been a "hit or miss" feature on the Samsung Moment, as some devices have perfectly working GPS, others have semi-working GPS, and yet others have completely dead GPS altogether.
