Samsung Galaxy review: Value line 551

Thursday, January 27, 2011

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

Android debuted on a full QWERTY phone, but the Messenger was never meant to be the dominant species. Galaxy 551 is pragmatic to accept and live with it. Samsung himself knows better than expecting the market to embrace more QWERTY Messenger skill and size of the Motorola milestone or HTC desire Z.

Galaxy 551 well stay out in the way of heavyweight Droid messengers. But some of the omissions of its spec sheet is surprising. In view of the QWERTY keyboard, a document editor would've made sense but the phone actually does not have a document viewer to begin with, although Samsung's traditional fast codec support has been affected by cost savings. The bottom line is obviously to Froyo, Wi-Fi and a QWERTY keyboard is more than enough for the money you spend on Galaxy 551.
