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 (T-Mobile)

29 November 2009
  • 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.
  • Pros: The Samsung Behold II boasts a vibrant AMOLED capacitive touch screen. The smartphone includes more-robust multimedia capabilities, and its 5-megapixel camera takes excellent pictures. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support are all included.
  • 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 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
