Samsung Propel Pro | Review

Samsung Propel ProOverviewWhat’s good: Battery life, shape, call quality
What’s bad: Cramped keyboard
IntroductionThanks to devices such as the Apple iPhone and the Palm Pre, 2009 has been unofficially coined as the year of the smartphone, and each manufacturer has worked to keep with the demand or new devices. Samsung is no exception, launching a broad range of new devices just in time for the summer shopping season. The Propel Pro has taken the popular form factor of the Propel, and morphed it into a device that's acceptable in the corporate world. Design & FeaturesRealizin... Full review

Novel form factor and nice autofocus camera

from MobileBurn

While it may not quite replace the BlackJack II in my mind when I think of the perfect Windows Mobile messaging smartphone, the novel form factor and nice autofocus camera should certainly give BlackJack owners something to think about when it's time to pick up a new device.

With its solid design and good overall functionality, I have no qualms awarding the Propel Pro a "Highly Recommended" rating. It's definitely a smartphone to consider if messaging is your thing, though with the low price of the Nokia E71 and E63 smartphones, it has some real competition right now.

Samsung's Propel Pro does WinMo 6.1 about as good as it can be done without any super fancy overlays

from Engadget

Earlier this month at CTIA, AT&T launched quite a few new phones into its lineup, one of which happened to be Samsung's sophisticated, college-educated Propel Pro. For a smartphone, the design is quite unorthodox; rarely do you see a WinMo handset that looks more like a square than anything else and can easily double as a mirror for the fashionistas. Engineered specifically for those who favor texting but can't afford to live without the luxuries that come with owning a bona fide smartphone with a bona fide data plan, the Propel Pro caters to an interesting niche.

I miss my black jack ii

My pretty pink blackjack ii died after about a year and a half, and the Samsung i627 was the manufacturer's replacement. First of all, they only had "silver," which is actually "black." So I was very disappointed that I could not get a) a black jack ii or b) a pink phone at all. As others have said, the battery life is a joke. I had to charge my black jack ii every other night. With the same use, I have to turn this phone off because the battery is dying before I even get home. Very annoying. Why even have a cell phone if it's going to be dead when you could need it most (late at night)? The picture quality is comparable to the black jack ii. The reception is worse than the black jack ii. I am in the same spots in my house trying to make a call, and it gets dropped. It doesn't seem to have a notepad like the black jack ii did--am I missing something? Sometimes it takes my having to manually delete all 3 of my email accounts for my text messaging to work. W. T. F. The instant messaging function gets an error message I've never seen before and it makes a horrible LOUD beeping noise, I guess when the reception gets lost? Which is ALL THE TIME. I am going to try to get a different phone, but who knows how that will go. This phone is a LEMON. If the phone WORKED, it wouldn't be so bad. I like the operating system. Less

I am going on a week with the replacement to my BlackJack. At&T insurance offers this phone as the replacement. First experience is third party apps are not supported, NOT SUPPORTED!? I was able to find a security patch online to unlock this feature, cool. I use Google email, contacts and calendar, after downloading the Google app, the graphic display for the Google toolbar was distorted and offset the front screen. Speed of the phone dropped about 20%. Result, uninstalled the app and use Google sync. My wife has a Samsung SGH-a707 (3+ yr old phone) we live 1/2 mile from a cell phone repeater, her phone has 3 bars, mine hobbles in and out with one bar. Are you kidding me? Even when outside I only get 2.5 bars, I have yet to see full bars on this phone. The battery life fully charged with two calls of around 8 minutes talk time was dead by 9:30PM. When I was receiving emails to the phone by 6:30PM it died. What is this the Apollo 13 phone? You have to toggle applications on and off to make it through the day? I must be fair and say that the slide out feature of the phone is solid, the phone itself looks and feels great. Screen resolution for its class is an upgrade from the BlackJack series. However Samsung designers should have propelled this design to the trash. After reading other reviews of this phone, I wonder how AT&T expects me to stay with their network by sending an Achilles heel replacement phone that has obvious design issues? Avoid this phone and live a better life. Less

I got this phone because when my Blackjack II started malfunctioning and eventually played out this was the replacement phone via AT&T phone insurance (Blackjack phone is also discontinued). Personally I believe this phone is simply defective! The "z" key would only type the letter "s"--even after a soft-reset that fixed the problem for only a day. Then reset back to the letter "s". I also found that the phone doesn't always wake when u push a button if it's in sleep mode. The download ringtones are extremely low. I have had several missed calls due to poor volume. Like other users, I found the joystick to be kinda jumpy & imprecise. You get better at it with practice; however I still sometimes end up in a screen--or about to make a call--unintentionally. I also found the battery life to be ridiculously bad--just read about using the task manager to make sure all programs are ended and I'll have to try it--or maybe it's not even worth it at. Lastly, there is no way to transfer all the data from one phone to a replacement. Sure, all the contacts and calendar information can be synchronized over, but everything in the 'notepad' function and favorite websites have to be manually entered. I use the notepad function heavily and this has been a major pain. I am on my 3rd replacement phone going on my 4th! I refuse to accept another one of these. They are simply poor quality. Less

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

This is the worst phone I've every owned. I rated it one star only because there is no zero star or negative rating. Battery life is dismal... Charge it in the morning, and it is dead by 6 PM.

This is the worst phone I've every owned. I rated it one star only because there is no zero star or negative rating. Battery life is dismal... Charge it in the morning, and it is dead by 6 PM. The Bluetooth is very unreliable as well. The "keyboard" lock is useless, as it unlocks itself any time it connects to Bluetooth, or if any alarm sounds. This causes frequent "but dials" and unwanted disconnect. Samsung and AT&T support for this phone also sucks. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! Less

It has everything I could ever need out of a phone, full keyboard, lightweight, a nice color, calendar, games, SMS, ect.

Overall good phone, sliding lock for a windows phone is a big plus, no need to unlock and lock phone with buttons. Bigger screen then blackjack 2, nicer look. Feels good in the pocket. Gps works instantly with google maps, unlike blackjack 2 which takes about 5 mins. Voice caller id is a big plus for me. Makes up for the stuck increasing ringtone bug. Negatives include phone reception not as good as blackjack 2, battery life shorter, and issue with bluetooth routing on my 06 acura tl, voice does not come thru speaker when dialing out. workaround would be to turn handsfree off, then hit speaker button on car, then turn handsfree back on. also bluetooth connection to your car will unlock the buttons on the phone. workaround would be to manually lock phone while driving. one more issue, two tier security means no one has app unlocked this phone yet.
