Samsung Galaxy Pro 3 Stars

« Back to reviews Samsung Galaxy Pro

Look and feel

The Galaxy Pro feels plasticky and features a rather strange back cover. While we like the keyboard, we can’t get over the fact that the Pro looks like a cheap BlackBerry copy.

Ease of use

The Galaxy Pro doesn’t run on the latest Android version, but it does a good-enough job. The QWERTY keyboard is user friendly but the screen is a disappointment.

Features

The connectivity on offer is great, including A-GPS, Wi-Fi and HSDPA. Plus you can download your choice of 400,000 apps on offer in Android Market.

Performance

The screen is disappointing both in terms of its resolution and size, so you won’t get the best experience when playing games or watching video.

Battery life

Most smartphones run for about a day on a fully charged battery, and the Pro is no exception.

Pros:
Decent keyboard; Android OS; good value.
Cons:
Watching movies and playing games is disappointing on the small screen.
Rating:

Final verdict: 3 Stars

The Galaxy Pro is decent value if you want a handset for emails and calls, but don’t expect much of a multimedia experience with the small screen and average web browsing.
