Samsung Galaxy Beam Review Price and Specifications
As the name suggests Samsung galaxy beam has something unique to offer in terms of beam projector. Yes you have got it right, Samsung has got a device which has built in projector which displays pretty much anything happening on the 4 “ inch display of the device . You can project a story for your children or presentation in your office or just watch videos by sliding the on/off switch buttons on the left side of the handset.
Out of the box the galaxy beam comes packed with 1GHz dual core processor and 8GB internal memory with 12.5 mm thickness. It looks quite sturdy but does not count itself on heavier side either. It’s the inclusion of projector that has made the device a little chunkier and gave an elevated look at the end of the device. The orange stripe surrounding the handset adds a chic look to the device and provides it with a unique identification.
The 5 MP rear camera with LED flash light renders good quality images on the screen with 480X800 resolution. However the failure to include AMOLED display have compromised with the image quality that gives blurred and shaky image when projects the images and videos on walls and ceilings. The crispiness and the quality of the image are lost when projected on the wall.
Another disappointment came with the OS that supports Android 2.3 ginger bread and not the latest ice cream sandwich version which restricts many android fanatics form using this phone. So, the Galaxy beam again constraints itself from the advanced android third party applications, affecting the utility and usability.
The battery life was the life saving feature of the device which would let you watch videos 3 hrs off the battery which is commendable. Watching the videos in low light surroundings of dark room give you a good viewing experience. So definitely the beam has no use in broad light outside.
To ensure you reap the maximum benefits of the so called projector (which can also be used as a torch), the Samsung galaxy beam comes installed with few projector apps. I loved the doodle utility which lets you draw/write anything on the screen with your fingers while giving a presentation. It also allows you erase it immediately without interrupting the content view for long. The pointers serve great purpose for pointing anything important or drawing attention which again enhances the use of projector.
While projecting, the brightness, color and volume are controllable with the astonishing capability to zoom pictures and videos up to 50”. The speakers deliver excellent sound factors while watching videos making it a very good affair to watch videos in group. With the quality audio quality and video playing capability, the folks have another good reason to grab it.
So the Samsung galaxy beam successfully delivers something unusual that not only proves the courageous and innovative factor of Samsung but also provides enough reason for it to receive accolades from competitors. Samsung however promises to check the limitations of android ginger bread with an up gradation soon.
