Samsung Galaxy Pro Review: In Depth
18 September 2011
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Pro is a mixed bag; we love the feel of the Qwerty keyboard but struggle with the positioning of the keys. We like that the Pro loads web pages and Google Maps quickly, but think that the low resolution screen lets it down in this department. Compared to the HTC ChaCha (more up to date OS, higher res screen, better camera) the Galaxy Pro doesn’t impress and we can’t see it holding its own against the forthcoming BlackBerry Curve 9360 in the Qwerty...
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Pro GT-B7510 is an attempt to take on the BlackBerry market direct, and for us it's not a success. If you want both Android and a proper keypad, handsets with sliding QWERTY keyboards do the job better. Otherwise, if texting, emailing and editing documents is still the key factor, we'd still be tempted by RIM's BlackBerry Bold.
Excerpt: The term is ‘Touch and Type’ and although it may have been coined by Nokia, but it’s a term that’s stuck and frequently pops up when talking about handsets that offer both Touchscreens and keypads for input. Samsung’s Galaxy Series also has a ‘Touch and Type’ option with their Galaxy Pro Android Smartphone and here’s what I think about it.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Pro's keyboard is undeniably fantastic but, otherwise, this Android phone is disappointing, with its screen being particularly poor. Its low price and half-decent camera are some compensation, but there are better phones to be had.
Cons: Terrible screen; doesn't run latest version of Android; incompatible with some apps and games.
Samsung Galaxy Pro – like the Blackberry 3G 9300, only better – user review

Conclusion: The Galaxy Pro is definitely better overall, and if your business does not use BIS or BES (which also cost a lot) already, it would make a better choice than the Curve, for sure, especially considering that it will be priced lower!
Samsung Galaxy Pro vs BlackBerry – Samsung Mobilers
28 July 2011
Conclusion: Unfortunately, I do not have the years of experience of using and owning a BlackBerry to go into a detailed comparison, but as you can see, they two mentioned here are very similar from a quick overview. Each has their own advantages over the other (when comparing similar form factored devices), and I feel that it (mostly) comes down to which mobile OS you prefer and how important it is to have a touch screen.

Excerpt: Smartphones featuring portrait QWERTY keyboards are a fairly untapped market, mostly dominated by the BlackBerry. Samsung has now made another entrance with the Samsung Galaxy Pro, following in the footsteps of the Motorola Droid Pro. But is having a...
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Pro is one of a rare kind - an Android phone with a QWERTY keypad. This phone will definitely appeal to those who text/IM/email a lot, and aren't very comfortable with a touchscreen only phone. The Galaxy Pro has a pretty sleek form factor, and the keypad is extremely comfortable to use. But be advised, the display is a bit of a disappointment. If watching a lot of videos is included in your smartphone usage diet, this one isn't for that.
Pros: Sleek form factor, Android device with touchscreen with physical QWERTY
Conclusion: There is a very exciting handset very similar to this that I had a look at just the other day called the HTC Cha Cha and it is so much better overall compared to this, so I would say if you have a little more cash in your pocket then I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Pro B7510 is not a phone to stun and impress. It sure is the first Android messenger by Samsung but not likely to have a prominent place in the company’s lineup. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though – the first thing for the Galaxy Pro to worry about is finding its right audience. There are phones that can’t escape the Blackberry-wannabe label. But the Galaxy Pro has a solid argument against that – Android.
Pros: 2.8" 256K-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) resolution, Full four-row QWERTY keyboard, ARMv6 800MHz CPU, 270MB RAM, 180MB of user-available storage, Android 2.2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz 3.0 UI, Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n with hotspot functionality, GPS with A-GPS connectivity; digital compass, 3.15 MP autofocus camera, QVGA video recording @30fps, microUSB port (charging) and stereo Bluetooth v...
Cons: The QVGA screen looks bad and limits the choice of apps, Portrait homescreen ported to landscape takes some time getting used to, QVGA-only video recording, No shutter key, No Adobe Flash support in the browser, No secondary video-call camera, No ambient light sensor, No dedicated video player app, No multi-touch, Android 2.2 Froyo, instead of latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread
