Samsung Galaxy Appeal review: A budget QWERTY GoPhone

A slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Android 2.3 characterize the off-contract Samsung Galaxy Appeal.


AT&T and Samsung may have just announced the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate, but another of the pair's Android smartphones goes on sale today.

Like the Exhilarate, the Samsung Galaxy Appeal features Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a reasonable price tag, but the similarities end there. The Galaxy Appeal is a $150 prepaid phone, for one, which means there's no contract commitment.

For another thing, it's also the owner of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which will appeal to those who prefer to type out messages than tap them.

Check out the video, photos, and pros and cons in my full Samsung Galaxy Appeal review.
