Excerpt: I’ve taken a look at the Propel before here , but this is a different colored one and we’ve got it for a special reason! Take a look at the unboxing video, still pictures and specs/features after the jump… Here’s the unboxing video, followed by the specs/features and then you’ll find still pictures:...
Conclusion: The Propel has a great (and hopefully soon-to-be-imitated) form factor, an above-average music player and camera, and plenty of other extras, all for a great price. But a bad LCD screen, missing earbuds and lack of 3.5mm jack nearly ruin an otherwise well-designed phone.
Pros: Great form-factor; good camera and music player, QWERTY keyboard; push email
Cons: No 3.5mm headphone jack; headphones not included; poor LCD screen
Conclusion: It looks great, it’s easy to use, call quality is excellent, the battery life is very good and it even takes good pictures. So if you’re looking for a basic phone that’s got some great qualities and features I can easily recommend you take a look at the Propel from Samsung.
Pros: Excellent call quality, Easy to type on keyboard, Good battery life, Overall a very good and useful phone, Decent still pictures
Cons: Video camera is low quality, Fairly large phone
Conclusion: The Samsung Propel is a good voice and messaging phone with support for most AT&T services like Video Share and multimedia features. Combine that with 3G support you and are getting a lot from a feature phone at mid-tier pricing.
Pros: Good keyboard with effective backlight. Phone has lots of internal memory to store music and messages and the microSD card slot plays nicely with high capacity cards. Video Share support is a plus for users who enjoy the service.
Cons: GPS needs a little tweaking. CV doesn't have good quality.
Excerpt: The Samsung Propel is a sturdy QWERTY slider (say THAT five times fast!) that puts texting front and center. While QWERTY keypads are usually found on smartphones, Samsung uses said keypad effectively on the Propel to enhance and expedite text messaging.
