Samsung GT-B7510 Galaxy Pro Android Smartphone
3 February 2014
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.
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...
Conclusion: So, if you're after a messaging phone, you want it to do cool stuff like tether, play music well and offer a greater selection of apps than a BlackBerry, all at a low price point, then the Samsung Galaxy Pro may be for you. Sadly, there is a compromise in the form of the screen. Its low resolution and lack of multi-touch puts it below other Android handsets specifically for tasks like web browsing and picture viewing.
Pros: Good price point, Comfortable QWERTY, Well connected
Cons: Poor screen resolution, Lack of multi-touch, No flash
Conclusion: Mobile phone camera has become an essential aspect for the users. It comes as a great handy to click any interesting moment on the move. When you plan to buy a new handset, you definitely watch out for the camera features. Samsung Galaxy Pro includes a 3.15 mega pixel camera, which may not be as superior as the snappers of the other high-end smart phones. However, this camera is quite decent considering its target market, which includes the entry-mid range users.
Summary: If you're after a good-value handset for calls and email, you can pick up the Galaxy Pro for only £130 on prepay, but be prepared for a disappointing display and mediocre web browsing - you might not want this handset on a two-year contract.
Pros: Nice keyboard; Android operating system; decent value on prepay
Cons: The small, cheap display means the multimedia features are disappointing
