Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch

Samsung delivers a 5 megapixel shooter with touch input for T-Mobile. The TouchWiz user interface works well. Find out if the other features do, too.

For T-Mobile customers feeling a little left out of the touchscreen phone craze, now there is something to get excited about. The Samsung Behold has arrived with a five megapixel camera and Samsung's wiz-bang TouchWiz user interface.

Like the PHONE!

I like this device mainly because it's simple. If you are looking for a superior data phone that does it all, don't buy the Behold. This device is a phone first and a PDA second. For a starter item its perfect, the camera is great (the preview on the phone does not do the pictures justice, load them onto a computer and SEE how good they are!), the touchscreen is great and works well with the keyboard (though t9 is stupid turn it off), also the music player works perfectly!

Hope it helps!

You CAN zoom very quickly.

To zoom quickly with the camera, just TOUCH somewhere on the zoom bar/meter.
Um can someone just delete my post. I thought zooming was done that way but i just tried it and it didnt work. sorry.
The phone sucks
Well, if anyone cares, I know why I thought you can zoom by touching the meter on the screen. It's because you can do that when looking at photos - but not when using camera.

Almost Totally Awesome

This phone is really cool...except for the LOUSY web browser. It's really too bad. I hope there will be an update.
That can easily be hacked. It's not the browser it's T-Mobile's proxy that causes it to be awful. Check out the Samsung forum over at HoFo for answers.
