Samsung Galaxy Beam i8530

 

The Samsung Galaxy Beam is more than a mere phone; it's your own private cinema too.

Projector works really well in darker rooms, Supplied with two batteries, Reasonably attractive design

Very expensive given the spec, Screen and camera could be better, Runs an older version of Android

At a first glance, the Samsung Galaxy Beam features the generic smartphone appearance we have now become accustomed to. Do not be fooled. Samsung's latest smartphone sheds a light on ground breaking technology, sporting a projector module that shines...

Samsung I8530 Galaxy Beam preview: First look

 

You don't see many of those around. Perhaps you're looking in the wrong place. As always, we're glad to be of service but, no, the Samsung i7410 didn't ring any bells. It was the good old Phone Finder again.

Review Samsung Galaxy Beam (GT-I8530) Smartphone

 

Dried-out Gingerbread? The Samsung Galaxy beam is a middle-class Smartphone with an LED projector. Sadly, the operating system is the old Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. We will find out if this device is a relic of the past or is still relevant today.

Good Workmanship, - Decent Performance, - Fair amount of accessories, - Great viewing angle stability, - Long battery life, - Nice projector feature, Samsung delivers a secondary battery which increases the time the phone can be used significantly, and...

Display is not very bright, - Outdated operating system, - Power adapter makes noise, - Modest cameras, - Rattling speakers, A brighter display. That would make this phone into a well-rounded package without any major flaws. Samsung could also offer...

Samsung Galaxy Beam Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Beam functions well as a smartphone, and has a decent projector. If you are in the market to invest around Rs. 25,000 on a smartphone, there are better options available in the market. But if you fancy a projector on your smartphone,...

Good performer, Good build, Projector works well, has nice extra features

Native video format support not wide enough, Not so great display in sunlight, Unattractive colour scheme
