Samsung Behold Review

0. phoneArena posted on 30 Dec 2008, 01:35

The TouchWiz interface invasion has finally reached T-Mobile who is receiving their first taste with the Samsung Behold. Samsung is intent on marketing their spiffy looking interface to win over consumers looking to make the jump into an easy to use touch phone. The device lives up to what our neighbors overseas were treated too earlier in the year...

really good review. i'm sure u guys agree with me that this phone is better then the eternity. i dont understand why u guys kept saying the samsung eternity instead of the samsung behold a few times in the review. haha i think u guys should put this phone as second place in the t-mobiles top camera phones. not the Nokia 5610. i really think u guys should review the samsung gravity and the motorola rokr e8.

oh and i forgot to say that the Behold was the first touch wiz phone available. delve was the first available for pre order online but the actual first was the behold. then came the eternity, then delve and lastly the omnia.

It's crazy saying it "only" shoots QVGA video. I can count the number of phones available in the U.S. on one hand. Oh, and that's 320 x 240 pixels more than what the iphone shoots.

Okay, this is what it says: "We were quite disappointed to find that it only supports a maximum resolution of 320x240."

I wanted to say that while the Behold is a really nicely designed phone and has a lot of features, it has a lot of design or software flaws that discredit it such as a "driving" profile setting that is supposed to activate the speaker phone when a call is answered in that mode, a call alert setting of "melody" which gives the "increasing melody" setting no matter where it is set to, a speed-dial entering system that takes only a mobile phone contact with no option for another multiple listing phone number and many other flaws that a true phone techy could find and see. Samsung claims they can fix my Behold by me sending it back to them for a so-called software or memory refresh but, what about all the people who have this phone and don't know about the flaws and how many people can and will send theirs in for repairs. Can't Samsung initiate a software update to correct the problems? You tell me!
