Samsung Galaxy Beam review: stay for the projector, but nothing more

Unless you absolutely need a pico projector, there's no reason to splurge on a device with lower-end specs when your money can be best spent elsewhere.

Pros
  • Projector works wellExcellent battery lifeSolid and sturdy build
Cons
  • Runs on obsolete build of AndroidLow-end specs don't match professional needs
