Just got this phone late last week and I love this phone. Watching movies on the cealing while in bed is great. Its a bit slow but once you overclock the Beam to 1ghz it is definitely snappier. I was using my wife's iPhone 4 before the Beam. iphone 4 beats the Beam in every category except two thing: Projector and FM Radio.
Amit listen carefully SAMSUNG BEAM is not going to be relased in india uk or any other country, ist old it smells and you will never see it or touch it, maybe on the poster or magazine. SAMSUNG abandoned this phone like your mum did you.
I got what you said dear macro
but it's possible to make it not heavy,a little heavy is not important i think(Up to 300g is good)(Max)
As far as I C my previous witten has been omitted;hehe
i'm from india so my relative will buy this phone for me frm uk so can u tell is there anyway to do software updates this phone because this mobile at present is not launched in india and there no software update or warranty is provided by the service center
lol @Canopus....love d specs but cud put in android as the OS but your dream phone may way 400g...to fit all that in a phone and make it ultra thin takes some serious engineering......
but I agree with what u said none of the phone manufacturers produce "total products" or in this case a phone that has all the specs that you want..its just soo unfair!! Ohh and I've been searching for this phone all over and i really thing i cannot get it now!
ok , this phone might be the best phone ever but it's not released yet and if so who knows how much is it gonna cost ?
The Omnia HD is the best and besides it's very affordable
Does anyone know when or if this phone will be updated to froyo? Also, can this phone handle adobe flash 10.1?
Simon, 22 Sep 2010Yes it is not as responsive as the Galaxy S even after the overclocking :p But if it was just ... moreSure I can imagine beam 2 but first wouldn't it be nice if people can actually get beam 1?
This damn phone is nowhere to be found...aaaaaa
i think this is a complete phone
its written that this phone is available but it didnot have videos like unboxing and all this ..
can some one tell me what its price and when it will be in the markets ( middle east or anywhere else )
i really like this phone and its my dream phone .. thanks..!!
summoner, 21 Sep 2010I'm finding it pretty slow and I wish there was some community to start working on firmware / ... moreYes it is not as responsive as the Galaxy S even after the overclocking :p But if it was just as fast what will be the point in buying the Galaxy S haha
I Imagine a Beam II out in a year or so with dual core 1.5ghz hehe
This Samsung phone reminds me why I work, I don't care if it is not as fast or as thin as the latest phones out there ...I just need to experience having this phone & it does not matter the cost!! This phone just different..
All I want to know is if this phone will be upgradeable to Froyo (android 2.2)
Simon, 21 Sep 2010@Arturas - 8MP camera with flash. Surely these stats alone will make it quite a decent camera.... moreI'm finding it pretty slow and I wish there was some community to start working on firmware / froyo :(
qwertyqazza, 19 Sep 2010this phone did not appear in south korea first,it was released in singapore for unknown reason... more@Arturas - 8MP camera with flash. Surely these stats alone will make it quite a decent camera. Is got a 720mhz stock cpu and 374 ram. These numbers tells the speed it not too good. But after you root it and then overclock it to 900mhz it is pretty good. Speed matching stock N1 and Desire. Which are 1ghz snapdragons with 500mb + ram.
@ qwertyqazza - What are you smoking? It is a pico projector not a full power projector that lets you project in daylight. Perhaps in 5 years or so pico projector can be powerful enough... Is basically for use in a dark room with a small audience. Projects up to about 60''+ with good details.
@Angry jeffrey - You are spot on here. Doubtful the Beam will get any updates in the form of Froyo anytime soon (if ever). Prolly rather release Beam II than a froyo.
@luke - Dun buy from Starhub, it is a rip at 1199 SGD. Just get it at a regular phone shop in SG for about 900ish.
Could anybody tell me the price of this phone at starhub. I am in the uk and will b in singapore for a day in november and would like to buy this phone with no monthly subscription. I cant find out on the starhub website as it says this phone is unavailable from my country any help would be good. Oh and would i be able to change the phone to english
