What can be said about the Samsung Beat that I didn’t already cover? It’s a tiny music-centric phone (aren’t all phones music-centric these days unless it’s a smart phone?) and as far as those go these days it’s not bad. Heck, you even get a 1GB microSD card. I like that you can keep the music player in the background and still access the music functions while not in the player. Bluetooth stereo is a plus, but it’s becoming standard these days and I beamed tracks, videos and photos to my laptop just for fun. The daintiness of the device will probably appeal to females more than males. Call quality is fine on both ends. The 1.3-megapixel camera takes adequate pictures in JPEG format as well as taking video in 352×288, 320×240, 176×144 and 128×96 resolution. You can even adjust white balance.
Is this review sounding a bit drab? Are you tired of reading reviews from a jaded prick? Think you can do better? Keep reading to find out how.
So here’s the deal. Sign up here and Samsung will pick a random group of consumers to review the phone and have it published right here on The Gear. You’ll be the coolest kid on the block and have one of the hottest new phones from Samsung. Do it!
