@Yen: I'd rather have a not nice looking phone with massive functionalities than having a n00b phone which looks nice but doesn't do anything. And looking normal = thieves will not be interested either (unless they are pro's :P)
when is it going to be available in the uae!!!!! somebody please respond.
the phone specs is powerful. design wise, doesn't really stand out from the crowd. it's just like an ordinary phone when being carried around.
Ordered my Galaxy Beam straight from SG today. Most likely get it early next week. Will be able to do some testing by then.
I look forward to people posting the poential best quality they can get of this phones camera quality, 720P video & image links of more videos & images, as the images I have seen so far look blurred, or cropped to a smaller size. It would be nice to have a clear 720P video of some music playback on those stereo loudspeakers on the BEAM or what would be better an accurate comparison of loudspeakers vs Wave or 5800. Now that would be cool!
Samsung must release this phone over in the UK, because there must be plenty of people who are interested. Sadly if this thread is anything to go by the population, we really need some reality check statistics & need to know how many pople are buying this phone. This thread needs to attract more people like the N8, Iphone4 & the Galaxy S. Singapore may decide whether it does well & decide whether it gets to the european countries including UK.
SO here is hoping that this phone does well & we look forward to the new reviews, demo vids, 720P, images, loudspeaker tests, because there are imaging enthusiasts, video enthusiasts, music phone enthusiasts or those complete multimedia enthusiasts that would like to know if their element of interest is worth the buying of the product. For instance I bought my 5800 because it had great sounding loudspeakers, this matters to some people & makes or breaks buying the phone.
STEREO SPEAKERS ARE MY INTEREST SINCE I'VE OWNED MY 5800XM I CAN NO LONGER DO WITHOUT FAIRLY LOUD BASSY STEREO LOUDSPEAKERS IN A MOBILE PHONE!
I know there are mixed perceptions with all phones. I saw someones blurred pictures of their bird. Although blurred the quality seemed to be good quality with no noise so maybe just need to enable Macro mode (close up).
This 720P video seems pretty stable, at least as good as samsung wave & galaxy s as far as I can tell. It looks promising & will probably please most people. Once I've seen some more 720P videos, images, then I will be able to make up my mind whether the quality is good in my minds eye.
I've heard from daniel at Tech65 (Gear65) that the BEAM's stereo speakers aren't that loud for playing back movies through PICO projector. But you are bound to need external speakers anyway for that. If the stereo speakers are 65dB, then they are bound to be excellent at least better than the 5800 I own. I have to say I love the sound on my 5800, just hope the Beam retains the same bass & is bit louder.
