I would not recommend anyone to buy this phone now until samsung fix the hand at "Andriod" screen issue.
I have to run to my local Singapore samsung service center to have the software reflash twice within a week of buying this phone. It always occur when you power off and power on the phone. I met many peoples at the service center who were there with the same issue. This is not an isolated case.
Anyway, I had enough of this problem and I am going to sell off this phone. I must say no other phone I have bought ever made me ran to the service center twice within a week of using it. In summary, it's a feature pack phone with a crappy phone software that will get corrupted and hang at startup.
I have bought the phone from Starhub for less than a week as I was very impressed with the features of the phone.
However, yesterday, I have tried to lock the SIM with password. I shut down the phone and on it again. I encountered the "stucked at Andriod screen" issue too. I have leave the phone on for the whole night and the screen is still stucked at Andriod. I wonder if Samsung has done a proper product test before marketing the phone and I wonder if Starhub has reviewed the phone before bringing it in.
If IPHONE 4 has poor signal, then this phone has no signal at all! Actually I am utterly disappointed.

Please break it... moreI received the phone and it worked fine for one day, it then locked itself and would not go pass the android start up screen. There seems to be an error on the unlocking codes these sellers are using?
that said, the one day I used it was fantastic
I just talked to a carrier of this phone in the united states and they told me that unfortunetly it will only use 2g in the states.. Not too sure what the difference between 2g and 3g are..? Is the speed that much faster on 3g?
Gooster, 05 Aug 2010I had the same issue.... loved the phone but locked itself the next dayWhat do you guys mean by the phone locked itself or the phone locking pattern? Please break it down to me and other potential buyers who have no idea what this is all about. Thanks.
GSM Arena - Please change it from your site that beam is available. None of the dealers have any clue, when its gona be launched or stocked in UK.
I almost had eaten their brains to fight n get this phone at the moment.
Have mercy on the dealers, as there may be many more like me, i hope.
Absolutely my next handle, BEAM-capability is so Star-trekkie, AWESOME ;-)
Peter, 04 Aug 2010Really? The pattern unlock might be the cause of it getting stuck? I used the unlock pattern f... moresearch the forum sg hardware zone. big thread for discussing the beam there. the common censor is that the unlocking pattern causes this freezing issue. dun touch it!
Im from the united states and am really considering one of these samsung beams. Just wondering how impaired, or if at all, the phones 3g data on at&t sim card would be? Does anyone on here own an unlocked samsung beam, and if so, does it run slow? Thanks
This phone is definitely a major contender is 4 iphone the only thing I know is the capacity of the media. Apple iTunes is easy to download video and music applications and everything, how does a media player, visual and functionality than the iPhone, and formal supports.
