In this article, I give you my quick review of the Samsung Galaxy Beam smartphone, which could be characterized more as a mini projector than as a classic smartphone. The main feature of this phone is that it allows users to display and share multimedia content anywhere on large projector screens. The essence is in the spontaneous exchange of photos, videos, and other digital media with family or friends. All materials will be “stored” on walls, ceilings, or some other improvised flat surfaces, which allows easy access to all potential participants in the exchange.
The Galaxy Beam has a built-in extremely bright 15-lumen projector, which allows users to have a good time whether the “projector” is outdoors or not. The picture is quite sharp, and the exchange is easy and fun. The device itself has a dedicated application that facilitates the selection of content and activates the design in a few simple steps.
You can use this smartphone as you wish. It is up to the users to use it in the room, outdoors, to use it as a home cinema. Together, with the help of a 5MP camera, you can create a slideshow and view photos you have taken with your loved ones, on a trip, for example.
Regardless of the fact that this phone has unusual features, it has not lost, or gained, in dimensions, so the Galaxy Beam has a thickness of only 12.5mm. There’s also Android 2.3 Gingerbread which runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor. It has more than a good 8GB of internal memory, but also an incredible 2000 mAh battery that will provide complete freedom for the duration of the “design”.
