Samsung Behold II (T-Mobile)

CNET
31 January 2010
  • Summary: Of all the Android devices, the Samsung Behold II offers some of the most powerful multimedia features, but its high price tag is a major turnoff.
  • Cons: The phone is expensive, especially compared with the competition. The TouchWiz interface isn't all that useful. Runs Android 1.5.

Samsung Behold II

MobileTechReview.com
28 December 2009
  • Conclusion: We love Android and we adore Samsung's vibrant AMOLED displays. But we could do with a little less TouchWiz on top of Android: it slows down the phone and it creates confusing redundant functionality. But if you're a Samsung feature phone user upgrading to your first smartphone, you just might appreciate the familiarity of TouchWiz. The phone is solid, well made and has one of the better cameras on the US phone market.
  • Pros: AMOLED display, very good camera., Wonderful AMOLED capacitive touch screen, solid build, feels good in the hand. Very good camera, good GPS and WiFi for fast data when 3G isn't available.
  • Cons: Too much TouchWiz on top of an already capable Android, occasionally sluggish., Sluggish at times, TouchWiz hinders more than it helps.

  • Summary: BUY the Samsung Behold II I feel comfortable enough with Android to say that it's presented in a solid package on the Samsung Behold II . And while many might like the fact that there are loads of third-party apps available, it really doesn't need that many. You could could spend more time enjoying the beautiful screen and battery life rocking out to a nicely connected life.
  • Pros: Outstanding AM-OLED Screen, Long Battery life, Solid suite of built-in features
  • Cons: Patched-together, inconsistent UI, Weak on business apps, Screen is a fingerprint magnet

Samsung Behold II

LAPTOP Magazine
2 December 2009
  • Summary: Priced at $229, the Samsung Behold II is the most expensive Android phone on T-Mobile, and it’s far from the best. It doesn’t offer the type of social network integration that other Android phones offer, such as the Sprint HTC Hero and T-Mobile Motorola Cliq, and it’s noticeably slower. While you may miss the AMOLED display, for $199 we recommend you check out the Motorola Cliq with its Motoblur user experience and full QWERTY keyboard.
  • Pros: Beautiful AMOLED display, Unique industrial design, Good Web browsing speeds,
  • Cons: Expensive, Slow UI, TouchWiz makes Android less intuitive, No social networkingaddress book integration,

Samsung Behold II SGH-t939 (T-Mobile)

PC Magazine
23 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Samsung messed with a good thing by over-designing the Behold II's Android UI; it's a decent Android smartphone held back by sloppy programming.
  • Pros: Sharp, responsive touch screen. 5-megapixel camera. Good battery life.
  • Cons: Sluggish. Buggy. Samsung's TouchWiz UI is a pointless disaster. Yet another forked Android build—this time for no reason.

  • Excerpt: (1 items) The Samsung Behold II smartphone is the latest device to join T-Mobile’s growing army of Android phones, which includes the T-Mobile G1 ( ), the T-Mobile myTouch 3G ( ), and the Motorola Cliq ( ).

  • Pros: Stunning AMOLED display, Excellent camera
  • Cons: On the expensive side, TouchWiz feels a bit cluttered

18 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Samsung’s Behold II is the most impressively ugly Android phone in existence. The custom interface is so bad, so gaudy and so confusing it turned my brains into ooze.
