Hey AdeptZero, Sorry I took soo long to reply. Thanks for the link. The phone looks awesome. Too bad Samsung haven't made an updated version of the Galaxy Beam for the American market as yet. China soooo lucky....lol. The rest of us...

Battery is quite good, specially with the separate docking charger. Plus spare battery Purely entertainment phone For picture taking, don't expect it give depth images. No zooming Overall rating: 8/10
