AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Appeal wraps Android 2.3, a keyboard, and a 3.2-megapixel camera into a reasonable $150 package.

The keyboard buttons are fairly spacious and the keys themselves are responsive. Still, they didn't quite line up with my fingers, and I found typing to be at times slow and uncomfortable. (Of course, everyone's fingers are different.)

The usual touch-navigation options and TouchWiz interface are Galaxy Appeal mainstays.

I do really enjoy the gently textured soft-touch coating that makes the phone easy to hold.

The QWERTY makes the Galaxy Appeal a little thicker around the middle, but that's normal for handsets with physical keyboards.

The device is rather generic, but there's a certain comfort in familiarity. You know what you're going to get with a handset like the Galaxy Appeal.

The camera didn't blow me away with its shots, and it also lacks flash and auto-focus, so you'll need plenty of ambient lighting and a steady arm. Note the brownish cast to this studio shot, which was set up indoors with professional lighting.
