I posted my review of the Samsung Behold II for T-Mobile USA earlier this afternoon. A real mixed bag on this one. I like the hardware quite a bit, especially the camera and the AMOLED display, but the software leaves much to be desired.
There are some real wonky text input bugs, for example, and the TouchWiz homescreen is just a flat out fail. Some of the stuff that Samsung added to Android works pretty well, or at least well enough, but the homescreen just doesn’t cut it. It has all of the same problems that other TouchWiz devices have – it’s hard to keep organized, counter-intuitive, and it offers nothing that the standard Android system doesn’t. The new 3D cube “menu” is awful, and certainly not worth the loss of the search button. Change for change’s sake, I suppose.
But it’s not all bad. The new notification system is nice, and I like the real profile support and the nice music player, too.
The two videos from the review are available after the jump, but if you want to learn all of the details, jump over to MobileBurn.com for the full Samsung Behold II review.
