Practical, good-quality physical keyboard

from Digital Versus (5 years ago)

The Samsung Galaxy 551 does everything better than the Bada version of this handset (Wave 533). It's more responsive, it can play DivX files, photos are sharper, it has 3G and it still has a good-quality full physical keyboard. For a 'free' mobile with a contract deal it's not a bad choice.

The Galaxy 551 opens the door to the exciting world of Android with a whole new level of performance

After a number of CDMA QWERTY messengers deployed stateside, Samsung’s intentions are clear – continue to serve an underserved niche. There’s nothing particularly exciting about the Galaxy 551 in terms of styling or features but Samsung’s first QWERTY messenger droid to work on European networks won’t suffer from lack of attention.
An affordable smart messenger will be a great option to consider for many current feature phone users. The Galaxy 551 opens the door to the exciting world of Android and you don’t have to wait to get Froyo. With a complete connectivity package (Wi-Fi N, HSPA, GPS) and a great QWERTY keyboard, it’s a whole new level of performance.
As usual, the new territory is duly signposted: some are quick to frown at the TouchWiz user interface but it does help brand-loyal users feel at home. There are small but important novelties here - such as the new and improved task manager and upgraded notification area with rotation lock.
The Galaxy 551 enjoys access to both the Android Market and the Samsung Apps repository. The WQVGA screen resolution won’t let you fully tap the Market’s potential, but the handset wasn’t meant to be the ultimate multimedia device in the first place. On the other hand, Samsung will surely offer some free apps and updates through its own service.
Currently the Galaxy 551 costs about 230 euro, which certainly is a competitive launch price. The competition is there but we guess that Froyo will make the difference where necessary. It is not a phone to get excited about – but you’d be wise to keep an eye on it. With the right kind of support from carriers, it might be a smart buy. Whether or not it’s your first smartphone buy.

The simplistic, unpretentious design of the compact QWERTY-laden

The interface is snappy, smooth and functional, while the physical keyboard differentiates the Samsung i5510 from the existing Froyo pack.

If you prefer touchscreen only, have a look at the Galaxy 3, or, alternatively, if Android with a keyboard does it for you, the Motorola MILESTONE 2 hears your pain, but at a higher price. The rumored MSRP for the unlocked Samsung i5510 is the affordable 200 euros ($270), and it is ready to appear on Vodafone in a short while.
