Excerpt: I have to admit that when I first saw pictures of the Samsung a766 Propel I thought it would be just another texting device, however, after testing it out and playing around with it I really love it!
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: Propel (SGH-a767) get the word out The SAMSUNG Propel™ is the slider that makes communication easy.
Excerpt: Samsung has solved the whole portrait vs. landscape form factor debate with the Propel. The Propel, officially the SGH-a767 and available from AT&T Wireless for the bargain price of $79.99, is a 2.33-inch wide slider – the perfect width for a breast pocket. By making the phone wider, there’s more room for a wider screen, and a wider QWERTY keyboard, without having to turn the phone on its side. This ridiculously simple “duh!
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
Review of Samsung's SGH-a767 Propel QWERTY messaging phone
1 December 2008
Excerpt: Looking for all the world like one of its Windows Mobile smartphones, Samsung has designed the A767 Propel to be a solid entry into AT&T's line of messaging phones. Marc Lynde tests it out for us in this review.
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. The Propel's multimedia experience is a bit hobbled by the lower resolution screen and unimpressive video quality, but music playback and gaming are very smooth and enjoyable.
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: Este modelo da Samsung oferece um design slider, com teclado QWERTY deslizante. Mas não sei quanto a vocês, mas eu particularmente não sou muito fã de QWERTY deslizante para baixo. Um estilo “sidekick” ao meu ver é uma solução muito mais agradável tanto visualmente, como em conforto na hora de digitar.
