Samsung Behold II SGH-t939 (T-Mobile)

PC Magazine
1 April 2011
  • 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.

John's Samsung Behold II video review

4 October 2010
  • Excerpt: In this video, I take a spin around the Behold 2 and decide it's time to make some changes. Behold's hardware is decent but the Cube has got to go. Stay tuned for the next video where Android's ability to be customized makes all the difference in the world!

Expert Review

14 June 2010
  • Summary: The was a straight-forward messaging phone from T-Mobile. But the newer Samsung Behold II is an advanced, Android-based smartphone -- so different from its predecessor that you might never know these two phone were related at all. And that's a very good thing.

Samsung Behold II

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.
  • 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.

Review: Samsung Behold II

18 December 2009
  • Excerpt: The marching orders are in: Google’s Android Army is on the attack! T-Mobile is adding the new Samsung Behold II to its Android ranks, which already include the G1, the myTouch and the Cliq.
  • Pros: An all-around reliable phone with fantastic talk time of 4 hours and 52 minutes. Mini-USB port makes file transfers a cinch. Feels surprisingly light at 4.2 ounces. Easy-to-use D-pad makes a decent alternative to touchscreen navigation. Ships with 2-GB memory card. Built-in GPS and Wi-Fi keep you...
  • Cons: Menus are confusing, inconsistent and ugly. Unlock key is far too recessed to be of practical use. Touchscreen seems to attract more fingerprints than competitors. No good can come of that spinning cube.

Samsung Behold II Review

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.
