First look: Samsung GT-i5510

 

Samsung had a rough start to its entry into the world of Android. Handsets were either uninspired or underpowered, however with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S earlier in the year the Korean company managed to change all that producing a handset...

Keyboard, Android 2.2, 1Ghz processor

Not as sexy as the Galaxy S

Samsung Galaxy 551 Android phone

 

Android smartphones with physical QWERTY keyboards are a rarity compared to their touchscreen keyboard counterparts, but Samsung is keen on offering t...

Full QWERTY keyboard ; Reasonable outright price ; Most functions and features of Android

Limited internal memory ; No Flash support or live wallpapers ; Modest processor

The Samsung Galaxy 551 combines a full QWERTY keyboard and Google's Android operating system at a competitive price.

Samsung Galaxy 551 review: Value line

 

The Samsung Galaxy 551 is something that should have happened a long time ago. This is not to say that the form factor was out of favor with Samsung. But it took a slew of CDMA messengers to finally see a QWERTY side-slider to land in Europe.

Slide-out full QWERTY keyboard ; Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support ; 3.2" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of WQVGA (240 x 400 pixel) resolution ; Great QWERTY keyboard ; Android OS v2.2 with TouchWiz launcher ; 667MHz...

Glossy plastic is a smudge magnet and scratch-prone ; No dedicated camera key ; No Adobe Flash support ; No live wallpaper support ; No secondary video-call camera ; No DivX/XviD video support out of the box ; No document viewer

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...

Samsung Galaxy 551

 

The Galaxy 551 is way overpriced for what's on offer. It delivers a decent, if buggy, smartphone experience, and the keyboard is good but you needn't spend this much for a comparable device.

Excellent QWERTY keyboard ; Android delivers great smartphone features

Cheap, plastic feel ; Some software instability ; Crumby camera ; Expensive for what you get

Between Samsung and Telstra, someone has set the price of the Galaxy 551 way too high. Whether you choose to pay AU$480 outright or AU$59 per month, the Galaxy 551 just isn't worth it. The keyboard is excellent and Android 2.2 does offer loads of great...

Samsung I5510 Review

 

At the IFA 2010 expo, a Samsung i5510 was spotted, boasting Android 2.2 and a physical QWERTY keyboard, in a fairly slim package. Now we have a review unit of the device, and will put it through its paces so you can judge how TouchWiz 3.0 and Froyo get...

Samsung Galaxy 551 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy 551 got its design from the Corby line but more elongated to accommodate the standard 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display.

Samsung Galaxy 551 Reviewed

 

A review of the Samsung Galaxy 551, we take a look at the phones design and user interface in the first part of our review on the Samsung 551.

The Samsung Galaxy 551 is like a Ferrari with wooden wheels, or a 5 star restaurant with paper plates. As promised we took off the makeup and discovered that perhaps this model is not as beautiful as it appeared at first glance.

Samsung Galaxy 551 - Android Messenger

 

Because of Android's impressive user interface and overall functionality, most of its phone models are touchscreen. Rarely will you see a QWERTY on slide phone. The most well-known of its type is the Motorola MILESTONE, but not because of its features...

Great for heavy messaging

Build not solid, average only processing speed

The Samsung galaxy 551 is not monumental or anything, but it is still a good phone particularly for heavy messaging. The phone doesn’t really wow. It’s a portfolio phone and targets few people of specific preference. Android makes up for its...

Samsung Galaxy 551

 

Here comes Samsung with yet another phone in the Galaxy line. This time it's in the form of the full QWERTY Samsung Galaxy 551.

With a 3.2 inch screen and a full slide out QWERTY keyboard, the Galaxy 551 is a nice mid level Android phone for all you enthusiasts out there. Expect it to drop sometime in November.
