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!
Summary: T-Mobile originally offered the Samsung Behold II for $230 when it debuted in the fall of 2009. As of this writing, in May 2010, the Behold is available for significantly less: T-Mobile is now offering the phone for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
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.
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.
Excerpt: The Samsung Behold II is a Google Android-powered smartphone designed for a chic look but containing powerful features. Antoine Wright brings us a review of this device, which is T-Mobile's[...]
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
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.
Excerpt: A Samsung ataca novamente, e depois de implementar o Android no Samsung Galaxy, agora chegou a vez do modelo Samsung Behold II ganhar o sistema operacional do Google (versão 1.5 Cupcake), e ainda, com a interface TouchWiz e alguns aprimoramentos na sua interface!
