Review: Samsung Behold
The Behold, like many other Samsung touch-based devices, uses touch resistance technology for the screen. So far, this is Samsung's best implementation. I had very few false positives or misfires with the Behold. I would recommend that each user take a minute to calibrate the touch screen and find the haptic feedback setting that suits you best. Quite honestly, I have grown to dislike haptic feedback and prefer that the phone don't vibrate every time I touch it. I turned the haptics all the way off and was very happy. The icons and widgets on the screen are developed for your finger (and not a stylus), so interacting with the Behold's screen feels very natural.
There's a new touch panel technology in town, and it's coming to next year's phones with flexible displays. Sensel makes touch panels that have the precision and multi-touch capability of today's capacitive touch technology, but are better suited to the flexible displays coming to phones this year and next.
The OnePlus 6 is the company's latest attempt to convince you that ultra-pricey flagships are unnecessary; why spend $800 to $1000 on a phone when you can get one that's nearly as good for just over $500? The 6 is an attractive metal-and-glass device that has the latest design from OnePlus, the latest specs from Qualcomm and others, and the latest Android software from Google.
