Let's get straight to the projector. It works. It's impressive for something that's on a phone. And if you step back, it give you an image that's 50 inches. I used it to watch a few YouTube videos beaming it on my wall at night but with one soft lamp on. It was fine. Obviously it's better in pitch dark. The 15 Lumins Pco projector beams out from the top of the device. You hold it like a remote. There was a stand with the phone but unless I'm misting something placing the phone into the stand beams the image up on the ceiling at a tangent! There's a dedicated projector button and a projector app for a few settings including a Rotate which you'll need. The brightness of the projected image is separate from the phone's own screen and you will need to just keep it on max all through. You can beam anything from the hoe screen to photos to videos. But there is a bit of fiddliness involved despite the button.
Samsung obviously thinks the novelty of the projector is enough to sell the phone because it doesn't seem to have bothered to put in anywhere near the newest version of Android. Gingerbread is now 2 versions old and while we may think Jelly Bean is expecting too much, what's up with not putting in Ice Cream Sandwich? But well, Samsung is bringing out other phones apart from the Beam that are also only on Gingerbread. If I'm not mistaken, the S3 is its only ICS phone so far.
You'd be right in worrying about battery life if you're going to be projecting stuff around a lot. So, they give you two batteries. That's a nice touch. But other aspects are not so thoughtful. Why just 8 GB of internal storage when you may want to store videos ad presentations to beam?Read more ›
The battery life is surprisingly good, better than my iPhone was, even when projecting. I've watched up to one hour long videos and it's only brought the battery down by 1/3 or so. It came with an extra battery, but I have yet to use it!
Someone else commented negatively on the 5MP camera, but it's enough for me; I'm a photo buff, and if I want hi-res I'll use my DSLR. This is awesome for snaps that you're just going to upload to Instagram or whatever.
