Review: Samsung Behold
The Behold can access applications from third-party developers through the main menu. Users can browse through games and other applications from the phone. Many require subscriptions or payments, which can be billed to your account.
The Behold supports mono and stereo headsets, as well as other Bluetooth profiles. Pairing with both mono and stereo headsets was easy. Sound quality through the Bluetooth headsets was very good. I was actually impressed with the quality of music playback through stereo Bluetooth headsets. I didn't have any interruptions or weird noises. The Behold also pairs with PCs and other devices for pushing files back and forth.
Checking the time with the Behold is as easy as pressing a button. When the phone's screen is locked, simply push any button on the phone. You'll get a message telling you that the phone is locked. Below that message, in a large digital read-out, is the date and time. The Behold easily replaces a wristwatch for quickly telling the time.

The Behold is pre-loaded with TeleNav's navigation service. I found that it worked quite well.
The Behold has voice-recognition software from Nuance. This was a hit-or-miss experience. Quite often, uttering "load the web" ended up launching voicemail. The software lets you perform a set list of actions without having to dive through the phone's menus.
