Samsung M3200 (GT-M3200 / Samsung Beat s)

 Samsung M3200 Discontinued
26th September 2008

The second of Samung's "Beat Edition" phones after the M3510, the Samsung M3200 (also called the Samsung Beat s) is a lower midrange slider phone designed for music playback.

The M3200 is a GSM-only device with a 2 megapixel camera, 2" 240 x 320 pixel display, a microSD memory slot, Bluetooth 2.0 and a USB 2.0 connection. To be honest, these aren't really the M3200's strong points, because it is primarily designed for music playback.

 Samsdung M3200 Beat bThe integrated music player supports MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC+ and e-AAC+ audio plus various types of digital rights management (DRM). Audio playback is enhanced with the addition of a B&O ICEpower amplifier, Samsung's Digital Natural Sound engine (DNSe), Shazam's "Find Music" application and an automatic equaliser function. On top of this, the M3200 has an FM radio with RDS. In addition, the Samsung M3200 has a 3.5mm audio jack and dedicated media control keys.

Size and weight are unremarkable at 101 grams and 97 x 47 x 17mm. Talktime is quoted as a maximum of 7 hours with up to 16 days standby time and 21 hours of music playback.

Although the GT-M3200 Beat s can establish some pretty good credentials as a music phone, it doesn't have much to offer other than that. The rest of the phone is a little mediocre - the specifications aren't too great and it lacks the fashionable looks of, say, a Sony Ericsson Walkman phone.

According to the information we received from Samsung, this is a GSM 850 / 1800 / 1900 device which would indicate that it is for use in the Americas rather than Europe. If this is the case, then it's no great loss. Samsung say that the M3200 should be available sometime during October 2008, although no pricing or exact availability has been specified.
