Samsung Beat (Music Phones Under $50)

Samsung Beat for T-Mobile Cell Phone Review - Manufacturer - Reviews - WirelessInfo.com - Cell Phone Reviews and Wireless Plan Ratings

 

The Samsung Beat is pretty easy to sum up: entry-level plus some music capabilities. Those who are looking for exactly that will find that the Beat does a solid job as a phone and provides decent music capabilities. In particular they'll appreciate the...

The Beat is another phone that makes an educated consumer's choice easy: it has a very specific demographic. If you need a professional device, look elsewhere. Likewise, if you're looking for an iPod competitor, you won't find it here. The Beat will...
