Samsung Propel Pro
Iím really excited to get to do a review on the Samsung Propel Pro. Most people may not get this feeling, but when I look at the slick design of this phone, I just get that excited feeling in the pit of my stomach. Itís as if Iím looking at this beautiful piece of technology that looks as good as it works. That may sound a bitÖ over the top, but itís the truth. Not too many phones actually make my jaw drop and just marvel at the beauty of the design. This is my review of the Samsung Propel Pro, which is probably about one of the best looking phones Iíve seen in a long time.
When it comes to the actual design for features, it really isnít that revolutionary. The keyboard slides down and exposes a full QWERT keyboard for fast access. It has the main trackball that you use in the middle to navigate. If youíre unfamiliar with that, itís quite typical of how a computer mouse works. You just roll your finger on it to navigate through the options and get to what you want. The design is slick with a nice dark color and a silver trim on it. I really like the look of it.
Here are some of the main features of the Propel Pro:
ē Web Browsing Capabilities
ē QWERT Keyboard
ē MP3 Player
ē 1.3 MP Digital Camera
ē Microsoft 6.1 Standard
ē Pocket Office
I think of the best features that is included on the phone is the ever versatile Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard. I know a lot of people give Microsoft a hard time, but when it comes to cell phones, it is miles ahead of the competition and offers a purely superior product. One of the main things that this operating system gives you is compatibility, which is hard to find in other phones.
The Samsung Propel Pro has some software that they call ďPocket OfficeĒ. I like this because it is a package of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Note and a PDF viewer. This is a great package to have on your cell phone because it turns it into a virtual office outside of your computer. Just think about the fact that it has PowerPoint on the phone. You can actually create PowerPoint presentations while youíre riding the bus to work in the morning. I think that is absolutely amazing.
The phone contains the new WAP 2.0 browser, which supporters all the new types of web page standards. That means websites will look exactly like they will on your computer. It contains the mp3 player, so that you can listen to music. The digital camera on the phone is 1.3 megapixels, which isnít exactly a ground breaking type of camera, but for the type of phone it is well within the range of taking decent pictures. With a card slot that allows you to add up to 16GB of additional memory, you can save a lot of pictures on the phone.
It contains all the standard features that you know a phone should have. That means it has Bluetooth 2.0 capabilities and also USB access. One feature that isnít on all phones is WiFi, but youíll be happy to know that it will pick up WiFi connections. That means you have the capabilities of finding an internet connection practically anywhere you go. Itís capable of running up to 3G speeds, so youíre going to get speed with it.
The screen on the Samsung Propel Pro is a standard 320◊320 pixel or 2.55 inch screen. This is a pretty decent size in between not too big and not too small. What you might find surprising is that the phone only weighs 137 grams. Thatís pretty light for a phone like this.
This is another phone that is going to be made available by AT&Tís wireless service. The estimated cost for the phone is around $150. For the particular features on the phone, I think that price is actually quite cheap. Compared to other phones, you wouldnít get anywhere near the same quality at that price. I personally think that the Samsung Propel Pro is top quality and it serves people best that need a way to transport the office to their phone.
