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.
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.
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.
