Samsung Beat DJ Review
17 June 2011
Excerpt: Time now for a Samsung Beat DJ review. The Samsung M7600 Beat DJ is, as you’d expect, a music phone. As it’s a Samsung phone, there are one or two things it absolutely must have: a feature-set as long…
Excerpt: The phone itself is slightly reminiscent of 2005, when, thanks to the PEBL, curved, oval-ised phones were all the rage. Put that aside, though, and you’re left with some very 2009 audio features, thanks in part to Bang & Olufson, who provide the speakers. If you’ve ever lamented the fact that your phone is not a set of DJ decks, this is clearly the phone for you. What we like The Beat DJ has one string to its bow, and that string looks a bit like Tim Westwood.
Conclusion: I’m in two minds about the Samsung Beat DJ. It’s not a great phone, but it is different from many of its competitors. It has a huge range of features, but a poor user experience. It’s music features are best in class, but the way you get to access your library of tunes isn’t! Difficult to recommend, but difficult to hate as well. I guess that makes it a 7/10, if only for effort!
Summary: We never experienced any problems with the call quality the Beat DJ provided us with. On top of that its ring tones sounded loud and clear in most environments; the vibro alert didn’t disappoint us either.
Among all other things, the phone offers fast contact search, Fake Call and some other welcome features.

Excerpt: If there’s one market that’s currently flooded with products, it’s the world of mobile phones. This makes it a bit of a conundrum for manufacturers to come up with a product that stands apart from the crowd. In response to this dilemma, Samsung have really pushed the boundaries of innovative convergent technology with their latest handset, the BeatDJ M7600. Not only is it a phone, but it’s also a mobile DJ unit. Nice!
Excerpt: Whilst much of the mobile phone world has been going mad for smartphones and packing handsets with in more features that see the consumer edging its way into what was traditionally business territory, Samsung seem to have made a move to diversify. The M7600 Beat DJ is typical of this move, a handset focused on music. We got our hands on the new phone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona for a First Look.
Pros: Build quality, unique, Shazam integration
Cons: Small screen, some features likely to have limited appeal
