Samsung Galaxy Beam review: Home cinema

At the end of our review, it's perhaps fitting to return to the highlight of the Samsung Galaxy Beam - the projector. We found its performance pretty good for the casual media sharing, though the low brightness and the uninspiring resolution hardly make it a great work tool. It's pretty clear that the I8530 Beam was aimed at youngsters rather than professionals and that seems like the more reasonable approach.

The projector alone is enough to put the new Galaxy Beam in a niche of its own and it's really hard to compare it to any other devices on the market. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support
  • 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • 4" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit PLS TFT touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels), Scratch-resistant glass
  • Built-in 15-lumen DLP nHD projector
  • Android OS v2.3.7 Gingerbread, planned Android 4.0 ICS update
  • No Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box
  • All plastic construction
  • Feeble loudspeaker
  • NovaThor U8500 is the least powerful of the dual-core offerings on the market
  • Thicker and heavier than mid-range competition

A projecting piece of kit: but will it leave you beaming?

All-in-all, we're a little pushed to find more than a couple of random things you might need a projector for. You could go old-school and make people sit through a literal slide show of your holiday snaps.

Or you could possibly be out in the middle of nowhere with nothing but a sheep to project a film onto the side of. read more →

  • Good battery life
  • Projector capability
  • Decent camera quality
  • Additional battery
  • High cost
  • Projector needs darkness
  • Screen terrible in sunlight
  • Niche market appeal

Samsung Galaxy Beam Review

It is fascinating how Samsung's researchers managed to stuff all these LEDs inside the small projecting unit in the Galaxy Beam, and still achieve a watchable picture that can be blown up to 50”, as if you carry your own big-screen TV in your pocket. Naturally, the resolution and brightness can't replace a TV experience, but under the right circumstances you can definitely enjoy a movie or two on the go together with many other people sitting nearby. read more →

  • Built-in 15 lumen pico projector
  • Large capacity battery plus a spare one in the box
  • Camera pictures oftentimes come with a yellowish overcast

Samsung Galaxy Beam review (unlocked)

Despite weak software, the Samsung Galaxy Beam's bright projector pushes boundaries, and strong smartphone features make it a worthy standalone device.

Just because you can fit a projector into a phone, does it mean you should? There are certainly instances when it would be convenient to magnify your cell phone screen for all to see, but just how often someone would need or even use the projector on the Samsung Galaxy Beam is up for debate. And if you don't use it, does it make sense to carry it around?. read more →

  • The Samsung Galaxy Beam comes with an integrated pico projector, a dual-core processor, 720p video capture, and a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen.
  • The Galaxy Beam's projection software needs some work, the 5-megapixel camera sometimes blurs indoor shots, and the build is thicker and heavier than many of today's phones.
