There’s nothing particularly exciting about the Galaxy 551 in terms of styling or features but Samsung’s first QWERTY messenger droid to work on European networks...

Summary: The Samsung Galaxy 551 is one of the relatively unknown Samsung Android phones out in the market today. This mid-level smartphone has a feature that’s quite rare in Android phones available locally, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Summary: The latest Galaxy to hit the Indian shores, Samsung Galaxy 551, is expected to start a movement towards low cost Android smart phones, which feature a full QWERTY keypad. The Galaxy 551 is a bar shaped phone with a slider QWERTY keypad, and is contrived entirely from plastic.
Conclusion: While it doesn't have the excitement that the Samsung Galaxy S has at first glance, the tech specs under the hood certainly look to make up for it, suggesting this should become one of those solid performers for Samsung.
