  2. Data sheet

While playing the Samsung, unlike a real DJ booth, always just a piece, but after all, DJ can be with the beat actually scratch so the virtual disk under the virtual needle scratching forward and move back.

Also waiting for the beat DJ with other tricks such as pitch or tempo changes and Hall effects and offers the possibility to record the DJ’s own deeds. This is a nice gimmick, the phone itself is a toy which alone the view shows in the equipment list but definitely not.

That fails not quite as extensive as at the two rivals in the test field, for example, wireless LAN is missing. The UMTS model dominates but also fast data reception via HSDPA, shoot photos with 3.2 megapixel resolution and locating a GPS receiver – overall a colourful mix of multimedia including fast Internet connection is under the hood.

Music player with 5.1 sound

It is essentially the mobile but a music specialist, which comes with everything you would expect from a good player. Above on the housing a 3.5 mm jack for headsets can be found, along with a stereo headset and a USB data cable for the micro-USB connector one comes with large memory card 2 GB.

About a small slide left, protecting also the display if necessary from accidental input, the music player can be at any time call. It offers delicacies such as the ability to switch to 5.1 sound, if there is a matching headphone.

To the equalizer settings, there are eight bands, which can be increased or lowered. To control the complete touch screen available is, for quick scrolling through long lists of music can be turned to a virtual wheel.

Rich colors, good menu navigation

The beat is controlled by DJ via finger across the 36 x 61 mm large screen. He has a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and stands out due to the AMOLED technology used by Samsung with rich colors. The touch screen responds reliably.

Overall, the menu on the touch-sensitive display is tailored to. Say: The menu entries are sufficiently large to sure taken by fingers; your own buttons are displayed for common operations, which are not always self-explanatory.

To quickly to get to important features, Samsung opts for widgets, which can control the music player running in the background. The greatest weaknesses: Scrolling through long lists remains somewhat cumbersome as typing text on the virtual keyboard of the phone.

Weak reception

Even though the mobile phone not really noble acts and visible as noticeably dominated, plastic processing in order, each Jack is well protected. Why the beat DJ over the competitors but some drops at the end, is also on the bad transmission and reception quality.

Those who opt for the beat DJ, should be not only willing to engage on the touch screen operation, but are also primarily in areas well built with cell phone towers.
