T-Mobile has always offered its customers distinctive, cutting edge Samsung mobiles and the Samsung Behold is no exception. With an attractive candy bar design that would rival the Samsung Omnia and LG Dare in a beauty pageant and a 3-inch touch screen with a responsiveness that would even be passable in iPhone country, the Samsung Behold is a triumph of both form and function. The TouchWiz interface lets you customize the Home screen of the Samsung Behold and access diminutive “widgets” that let you pick a song, take down a note or peek at your calendar without interrupting your other tasks.
Behold comes with the impressive bevy of features that loyalists have come to expect from Samsung mobiles. With a 2,000 contact phone book which includes entries for birthdays, addresses, anniversaries, websites and other notes, you’ll never be late to a surprise party ever again. The camera offers you a generous 5.0 megapixels with four different resolutions for stills, three shooting modes and a maybe useful smile detector that takes a picture once everyone’s pasted a grin on their face. There’s also a flash and some basic photo effects and features, such as brightness, white balance, color effects, anti-shake, backlit mode, self-timer, auto focus, exposure metering and four quality settings. The camcorder shoots in two resolutions and can hold up to 180MB of video on the internal memory (expandable to 16 GB with microSD card). Multimedia messages are limited to 4 minutes in length, but standard videos can go much longer.
Though the Samsung Behold lacks WiFi capability, it does have a full HTML browser. Scrolling can be done through the touch screen and pages can be zoomed in and out with the press of a button. Again, the full QWERTY keyboard comes into play for easy URL typing and bookmarking. With support for T-Mobile’s 3G network, browsing is quite swift, with only seconds of load time for most webpages.
At the end of the day, the Samsung Behold is great for its 5.0 megapixel camera, rabbit-like 3G browsing speed and fetching design.
