The Samsung Behold has gone through some changes with the sequel version of the handset. Now powered by Android (Samsung's first such handset for the carrier), the Behold II has been transformed into a smartphone. The touchscreen has grown from the 3 inches on the original to 3.2 inches on the sequel and the latter's AMOLED screen blows away the original's display. At the time the original Behold was released, it was T-Mobile customers first experience with the TouchWiz UI. Touch Wiz is still a feature on the new Behold II as is Wi-Fi and a 5MP camera that sports AF and LED flash. After an Instant Discount of $220, the Behold II will cost you $229.99 with a 2 year contract. If you want to use the "Even More Plus" plan that allows you to pay off the phone monthly, that works out to roughly $22 per month over 20 months. Remember, the non-subsidized price is used for the latter plan.
While the original Behold was a featurephone known for the TouchWiz interface and the premium (at the time) 5MP camera, Samsung has seen the future and it is smartphone and Android based. The Behold II is a much different animal than the first-gen unit and this time around should be able to attract those customers seeking a device that offers many features with a brilliant display and a friendly UI.Samsung Behold II Specifications
