Review: Samsung Propel
Propel has a great (and hopefully soon-to-be-imitated) form factor, a handy QWERTY keyboard, an above average music player and camera, above-average talk-time battery life, speedy Web access, and plenty of other extras, all for a bargain price. Propel is perfect if you're less a talker than texter and you can't stand multi-tapping. But you get what you pay for – or, more accurately, you don't get what you pay for if you like to converse and/or listen to music. Poor voice quality, the poor LCD screen, no way to program a non-listed email domain, no included earbuds and no 3.5mm jack are all unfortunate deal breakers.
