The Samsung Propel has a slim design and comes with a slew of multimedia and 3G offerings.
The Samsung Propel has a rather flat navigation array and the keyboard felt cramped. We were also disappointed by the lackluster display.
The Samsung Propel has an impressive high-end feature set, but we were disappointed by its design.

The Bottom Line:
I recomend you BUY this product, because, not only does it meet the majority of ones phone related needs, but also because it's pretty!
Most people look to cellphones as accesories. To some, our phones are our doorway to civilization and society. But for those of us who view our phones as good function and good fashion, the Samsung Propel serves as the standard.
I have been using the Samsung Propel (In green,) for quite some time now. This phone has yet to dissapoint me in a way that would make me doubt the product. You should see, as I list the positives and negatives, what few there are, that the Propel is a reliable, buyable phone.
The Samsung Propel's initial pro is its appearance. While I would certainly agree that a phones shell may not always accurately reflect it's internal quality, I would contend that looks are important. Our world is built on aesthetic pleasure! The product was originally released in four standard colors: A deep red, A soft navy, A vibrant green, and a White and Red duochrome. The green phone; I speak of this color in particular, because it's sitting next to my keyboard currently; is backed with a simple, but interesting geometric pattern. The detail seems unecessary, but I believe it ads much deserved personality. Even if you don't like it, It gives those of us who spend a great deal of time taking pictures of ourselves, something to look at while the shutter snaps.
While we're on the subject of photography, I would like to discuss this phones camera. I was greatly surprised at the quality this 1.3mp camera produced. Not only were the images satisfactory, but the settings with which you can take a photo were quite pleasing as well. With timers, color and light filters, and a variety of fun extras, this camera will do the majority of your photographic endevors good justice. This phone served as my primary camera for at least six months.
Because this product seems to emphasize an air of quality experience, It is not likely to dissapoint in regards to programing. The Propel's operating system is an efficient one. Very rarely did I have any issues locating, adjusting, or studying any of the phones tools; This is particularily important to people who may share my disdain for unfamiliar, unfriendly softwear.
Just as the softwear sates the starving soul of the common cellphone owner, The hardwear is premium, as well as tasty! Thumbing at the keys, I am happy to find that the keyboard is set up similar to the standard qwertys. Letters and a majority of commonly used characters are in the proper corresponding places. The keys are spaced adecquitely, and the fact that the phone DOES have a full keyboard makes conversation through text and email proper, civilized, and timely. Thought, those characteristics are all subject to those who's thumbs type the words.
These keys are protected through method of sliding cover. The large screen slides down to protect the meat of the phone, as well as lock it. This helps to keep from accidentally presing buttons, and works quite well to put at bay the threat of an unitentional call from the pants or purse.
As far as data transfer goes, The Propel is equiped with an external microSD port. I've dealt with many a phone that required me to
I've had the Samsung Propel for less than a week already and I like it very much. My previous phone was an LG Shine - a very competent phone itself - but I wanted a QWERTY keyboard that wouldn't break the bank. This phone has 3G, a MicroSD slot, a compact design, and of course the QWERTY keyboard. The screen is bright, the camera is adequate.
Call quality is great, much better than the Shine it's replacing. Even my MP3 ringtones are clear in quality.
The phone uses AT&T's proprietary software which is a bit quirky at times. Navigating the system is a bit cumbersome sometimes due to the number of keystrokes required, such as when sending an SMS message. Also, the contacts list only displays at most two contacts at one time which makes browsing relatively time-consuming. A saving grace of this phone is how you can customize it - the functions of the four buttons on the circular D-pad can all be changed, and you can really utilize the custom "My Menu" on the left soft button to circumvent a lot of navigating.
The keyboard itself is pretty good. Granted, it's not a Crackberry and it can get a little cramped sometimes, but you get used to it pretty quickly. Four days in and I'm pretty happy with it but I'm still not typing very fast yet. The trick is to use the tips of your thumbs for greater accuracy.
The phone is pretty solid. I haven't dropped it yet but I'd expect it to hold up okay, but not as well as the Shine seemed to. I will be getting a Body Glove case for this phone once my Shine sells and with that I'll be much more confident.
Overall, it's a great starter phone for those who want a QWERTY phone with 3G compatibility. If you do a moderate amount of texting like me, it's great, but if you're a heavy texter and phone-typer in general, you may want to consider a phone with larger keyboard and better internal software. But then again, you're looking at a much higher price than what you'd pay for this. It's great bang for the buck.
I really like this phone. Much better than a flip phone. If you want a smart phone get one( Driod or Apple). This phone is good as a phone and for texting. My first one lasted 6 years of hard use. I bought one to replace it on Ebay and it lasted a couple of weeks (I got my money back) I now have a i5, but still like the simplicity of the Propel. I will get another because for most stuff it's easier to use. If you are looking for a phone for phone and texting this works well. I am concerned that my second one lasted only a couple of weeks. I took the old one apart and there is a very thin ribbon cable that ties the keyboard with the screen the rest of the electronics. I think that this the weak point in the design. No need for a data plan on the Propel (screen is too small and 3G is too slow.) I enjoy playing with the apps on the smart phone, but the cost is not worth it.
NOT A PDA!
Can create multiple contact groups, and name them.
Can only text 10 contacts at once.
Battery doesn't last very long at all.
I coach Boys and Girls High school soccer. I need to be able to text 80+ people, or just one or the other team. Or just the team and parents. My Blackjack, would not allow me to select multiple, so I hated it. I had to save a draft, to be able to "Reply to all" or it would be 30 minutes of me entering names. This phone gave me the option of creating a ton of groups, but I found out quickly that it will only send to 10 at a time. So now I have to send 2-3 seperate messages just to get the word out to 25 players. I am still looking for the phone that will do what I want.
We now own two of these phones. Love the style and look of phone. A little complicated in navigating around to find the point you want to be at and book isn't thorough enough on how to operate all functions of the phone but i'm sure we'll get it with practice. Works great. Has lots of features with instand access to messaging, contacts with one button. Wish buttons were a little bigger for the fingers, its harder for men with big fingers to use. Camera works well but wish it was made with higher pixels. would recommend this phone to others.
