Exactly what i needed...and wanted.

Posted on: February 10th, 2010 by Christina P

The good: Good design, comfortable in hand and pocket, VERY customizable, durable, you can set it to lock upon sliding shut, AMAZING battery life (about 2 full days for my device) The bad: Middle button goes to Internet. The speaker phone could be a little louder.Summary: I've had the phone for a few months and it works great. The middle button does go straight to internet, however you can set the phone so that it automatically locks when slid shut and that helps control any unwanted browsing. I was looking for a phone that was a bit more high end but I didn't need a smart phone and I didn't want to pay for a phone that would come with a bunch of apps that i don't use. This device does carry more than average apps though. It has GPS and yellowpages, a nice music player with xm, and 1000 available address book entries. It is an all around great phone. I've even dropped it a few times and it still works smooth, even the slide is still smooth.I worried that this phone might be too bulky but it is not. Im a pretty small girl person with small jean pockets and it still fits in the pockets. it is not too big in my hand nor does it look like im talking on a cell phone from 1999.

Pretty Nice...

Posted on: June 27th, 2009 by Daniel C.

The good: Full Keyboard, Firm Slider, Nice Colors, decent camera,micro SD expandible, and Music Player. The bad: Battery Life, Screen Quality, Speaker Volume, and Small Keys. Summary: Long Story short, My other phone broke. Since i had the incurance, i got a free phone as my replacement. They ofered me the Sony Ericsson W580i; or the Samsung Propel (A767). Since i had nevr had a phone with a QWERTY board I desided to go with the Propel; Im glad i did. While waiting for my Propel to come in the mail, I desided to go to the ATT store to check out the W580i. It felt really cheap, and as I said, it didn't hav the QWERTY board. Then, I felt right for choosing the Propel. When I recieved my replacement in the mail, I opened it up, and popped in my SIM and Micro SD and it worked really nice! Started texting right away (I am a HUGE txtr!!!!); that wuz nice. The shortcut button on the side is handy. And, the phone is not to heavy, and not to light. If you text alot like me, the battery will last you bout a full day. Speaker could be a bit louder as well. So... If you like the fact that u hav a QWERTY, you want a basic-med. end slider, and like simple navigation menus... This is the phone 4 u! Hope this helps!!! Go Noah!!!

Great Phone!

Posted on: February 8th, 2009 by blackzmage lopez

The good: slim, not bulky, doesn't feel cheap, fun, easy to useThe bad: Too easy to access internet: some people dont want it, Battery: it drains quick but this can be fixed.Summary: This is a really great phone. I was comparing this to the Pantech Matrix, but overall, the propel is more suited for me. Its not too big, fit good in my pocket. The speakers are good, Camera quality it good, decent pictures. Calling is great too.I would recommend this phone.

Good job Samsung - best design out there! This style will be copied by other phone makers!

Posted on: February 1st, 2009 by Denah Miller

The good: Size - Not too big or small and it is slimmer that a deck of cards, not heavy or bulky; as a woman it fits easily in my hand;Qwerty keyboard - lighted keyboard;Ease of Use;Screen size is easy to see;Features are great; purchased at ATT for around $80 with a 50% special that they had and still get a $50 rebate from Samsung. Not bad for $30. The bad: The outer case colors are fun but for a more professional, business look, I would have a preferred gray or silver colored trim too as an option. Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted a new phone. I love my Razr3xx and was quite surprised of this phone. I was apprehensive of the slider design but not anymore! It seemed sort of cheaply made at first but that is not the case. It is a very functional phone. I do not need a PDA type device so I was pleased to find this is the next best thing. The qwerty keyboard is great. You can talk without having to open the slide without a headset and it connected to my bluetooth effortless. I am not sure of battery life as I have been playing with it a lot for the last 2 days. Battery was cited as an issue with the Razr before I purchased it but I was able to go 3-4 days or so before having to charge it. I am not a heavy phone user or texter so I am sure if I use it a lot I will have to charge it daily. I strongly recommend giving this phone a try. The design is a refreshing change. I hope this is a style and design that is copied for a while on the market with all of the wireless providers. Samsung nailed it with the design!

Posted on: January 29th, 2009 by Allie Cronin

The good: quick, easy texting,great look. The bad: Usually end up on the internet when not meaning to, because the internet access is very simple to accidentally hit.Summary: This phone is really nice, I love the large screen and qwerty keyboard. It holds up nice to any throwing about, if you are clumsy. A lot of space for pictures and messages, really great!!!

Great Phone

Posted on: January 7th, 2009 by Anonymous

The good: Easy to use, great camera, good picture quality, screen brightness, fun to useThe bad: bulky at timesSummary: I read so many reviews before buying this phone, and I was scared because so many people complained about the battery life. I am glad I didn't let that defer me from buying the phone because I have had no problems with the battery life at all. I just charge it every night.This is the first phone I have had with a keyboard. And have been able to get used to it very quickly. I usually think of myself as having large fingers, but have had no problems at all with the size of the keys. It has a slim design and does fit in a pocket very well, even small pockets. The screen is very big and clear. Overall I am in love with this phone.

Samsung Propel

Posted on: November 29th, 2008 by Anonymous

The good: Easy to text on, fun to use, sleek look.The bad: Battery life is not that great.Summary: Ever since i saw the commercial, I had planned on getting this phone. once I actually had it in my possession, I was surprised that i was even more satisfied. it was worth the money I paid for it. It was quite convenient since my old phone was also a samsung, so I was used to the format of the phone. this phone is very pleasing to use and pleasing to the eye.

Propel

Posted on: November 3rd, 2008 by Angelica Martinez

This phone is awsome, it has all the features you need with out the complexity of trying to figure it out, its user friendly. menus are easy to read and adjusts to your liking. This phone makes texting a nice and quick way of typing all you want. Web browsing is fun, quality of this feature is more then i expected. I highly recommend this phone if you want the features of txting and web browsing without the extra non-used features a blackjack or blackberry phone offers.
