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. 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.

Samsung Behold II Review

2 December 2009
  • 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.

Samsung Behold II SGH-t939 Review

20 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Trying to avoid a me-too Android phone – a growing problem for Android handset makers – Samsung seems to have made alterations for the sake of differentiation more than for improvement. Some of these changes, like the horizontal app menu drawer orientation, and redundant swirling Cube interface, are merely annoying, rather than detrimental. But if texting and social networking are paramount to your T-Mobile phoning desires, you want the Cliq.
  • Pros: 5-megapixel camera, 30 FPS half-VGA videos, Bright and colorful AMOLED screen, Long battery life, Wi-Fi
  • Cons: Awkward horizontal app drawer orientation, Redundant app menus, Overly-sensitive microphone, Poor video resolution/display

Samsung Behold II Android smartphone review for T-mobile USA

17 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Samsung's Behold II for T-Mobile USA sports a gorgeous AMOLED touchscreen display and a fine 5 megapixel autofocus camera, which make it an Android phone to notice. But Samsung also gave it the TouchWiz treatment, and that causes some problems. Read our full review to learn more.
