Every breath of fresh air in the mobile industry is now at a premium. I am not concerned here with 4-core processors or the giant screens. About the right – typical – technical innovations increasingly difficult, so very happy I took to be a review of the new phone from Samsung, which brings one, but a very interesting new feature: the projector. And if the projector is in the outside of the phone, something interesting? Feel free to continue the review 😉

[Nggallery id = 185 template = techmaniak] At the beginning of the review I must admit that the weight is felt Beam'a Galaxy. Less than 150 grams is a lot, but for me this was the state of things was an advantage. I prefer to feel the phone in your pocket than to worry about whether the "skinny" is still there. 😉 Samsung opted for a combination of plastic, rubber, for the device has also been changed a little bit distinctive design, which for several years has been distinguishing corporations. Yellow band entered the device adds a bit of style, a brilliant idea was also transferred to this very distinctive element of all your buttons. Due to the built-in DLP projector, rear wall unit has become slightly convex shape, but it does not affect the quality of the equipment. Is very good.
Samsung has put on display with a diagonal of 4 inches made in standard LCD TF technology. It is a pity that there was no room for even the older generation AMOLED-a, because wyszłoby this device only for good. It must be fair to say that the picture quality is optimal and the response to touch leaves nothing to be desired. I think the 4-inch display will be for most of you are very comfortable for everyday use.
Actually, the batteries, because the included charger i find the cache .. second battery. This ingenious solution that effectively solves the problem of carrying out the entire presentation on a single battery with a capacity of 2000 mAh. It should be give to Samsung, the Galaxy Beam is able to emit an image from a DLP projector continuously for up to 3 hours. This is a very good result. In everyday use the device without any problem will be able to withstand two or three days of work. As for the multimedia aspect, the one film lasting about half an hour deplete the battery capacity by about 35-40%. This is a very good performance.
[Nggallery id = 187 template = techmaniak] Samsung Galaxy Beam is running the aged has Android 2.3 Gingerbread, additionally supported by the author's TouchWiz overlay. Due to the amount of RAM (768 MB) can be assumed that the unit qualifies by Samsung to update, but it is known that in the case of Korean corporations never quite know whether a product will get a new version of the system or not. On the test machine everything worked very smoothly and fluently, often repeated, that TouchWiz is a very friendly and intuitive environment, so it is this time. Software is not much different from that which we find in other phones of the manufacturer, of course, novelty is dedicated to the projector soft DLC.
[Nggallery id = 189 template = techmaniak] The amount of options is not too extensive, but far enough to enjoy a high comfort of use. We can focus the image, change the orientation, some room to maneuver also gives QuickPad function, where we can find a simple drawing options, color selection or function pointer. Make a good impression too short presentations, which can be found in the device is also very easy to display videos and – for example – Youtube.
They work pretty well. Dual-core processor is easily able to haul Blood and Glory, the new Rayman is Angry Birds, of course, Star Wars. Comfort of playing on a 4-inch screen leaves nothing to be desired. Of course, the migration of the larger unit at the beginning may seem confusing, but after a few hours of a man barely notices a difference. And if to this we add the ability to track game on the wall, using the projector, then there is no talk about. 😉
device's Wi-Fi network quickly and easily connects with them. Standard 802.11b/g/n ensures a pretty good rate of data, which should satisfy even demanding geeks. Browser does not show any tendency to slow down the action, well able to cope with the elements embedded in Flash. It should be a very good compliment to Samsung optimization of network services. Dopowiem only that the integration of the mobile phone with Facebook and Twitter, did not give any reason to complain.
Samsung Galaxy Beam can easily deal with video files, even those in HD. For added comfort, I recommend immediately and install MX Player Codec Pack, which translates into increased comfort, watch videos, including also those that need to be supplemented with subtitles. Somehow the sound leaves much to be desired, the unit plays loud and clear, despite the fact that the location of the speaker seems to be a bit awkward.
tested the device at an angle of coverage of all four operators acting on Polish territory. I can admit that the Galaxy Beam is firmly signal exhibits no tendency to losing it, the caller always hear me well, despite the fact that the phone (as well as several GSM networks ) does not offer support for HD Voice technology. In crowded places need to have a little more carefully listen to the caller, but the increase in volume of the device effectively reduces the problem.
4-inch screen and support for Swype keyboard from the beginning ensures a proper, high comfort typing text messages, both in portrait and landscape. Due to the fact that we are here for the aged Android 2.3 Gingerbread voice dictation limp body of the message, especially the latest Android 4.1. However, if you are fans of "standard" writing a message, the Galaxy Beam does not give you many reasons to complain.
5-megapixel camera accompanied by LED illuminate correctly deal. It is clear that the pictures taken in low light does not go out or come depleted, but on a daily basis the solution proposed by Samsung works quite well. There should be no cause for shame when you show your friends on the projector pictures from the last trip. [Nggallery id = 191 template = techmaniak]
Samsung Galaxy Beam quality video captures 1280×720 px at a rate of 30 fps. I must admit that I was hoping with the fact that your little "wymięknie" during the filming of the video, that finding any large amount of noise or glitches. None of these things. Video looks good, nothing more, nothing less.
Summary, evaluation and review
Samsung Galaxy Beam is to some extent a revolutionary phone, which – in my opinion – brings to the industry a lot more than even SGS3. It's an interesting device with pretty good technical specifications and authentic news that could make the world boring presentation of a new, more compact dimension. ill largest machine is an aging operating system, the average (but sufficient) mode photo / video. Galaxy Beam in the company of a new Note can human is certainly an interesting option for business and it seems to me that it is precisely in these categories should be treated this phone first and foremost.
