Christmas has come and gone, and despite the financial crisis we are in, I think people will agree when say this honestly has been one of the best holiday season in years! Maybe it’s because of my nephew’s first holiday with the fam. It could’ve been the 12 hours of good basketball on T.V. Christmas Day, or maybe it had something to do with the the good weather, the three bottles of vodka, a pair of extremely loud and clear portable speakers and a the new Samsung Behold I was given! Either way, I know I have to share this with you…without the alcohol, of course.

First thought when opening gift box: “Another pair of small speakers. I bet they aren’t that loud or clear”. I hate being wrong, I really do. Aside from the super expensive Bose mini speakers that retail for $700, I guarantee you won’t find another set of speakers this compact, loud and clear. They’re ideal for road trips, hotel parties,or entertaining crowds in a small space because of its vacuum bass expansion delivering size defying sound. Compatible with all music players, computers—basically anything with a headphone jack. No batteries necessary, it’s rechargeable by USB connection I really don’t see how they could make this contraption more convenient. The iHome Capsule is a true attest to the saying size doesn’t matter!

Now for the next gift I kinda knew what was in store for me and man was I excited. The Samsung Behold, it’s better than your Instict of iPhone for the following reasons: Its smaller than your phone, your phone doesn’t have a 5.0 megapixel camera and it doesn’t offer a Fave 5 service, exclusive to T-mobile. And if that’s not enough, there are even more features which make Behold worth getting. The next few features come in handy for someone such as moi… a world traveler. Allow me to explain. When traveling, I always like to use cash instead of credit card—no paper trail for people trying to track me down. Anyhow, I’m always converting money in my head because, when you’re a tourist, people try to pull a fast one on you, over-charging and such. I haven’t got to baller status where I don’t need to dollar count just yet.

The Behold has a currency converter that solves that issue international ‘extra-taxation’ as well as a length, weight, volume, area and temperature converter. This comes in handy because the rest of the world uses the metric system except for stubborn America, and I didn’t pay attention in elementary math. So sue me! The Behold is arguably the best phone out on the market right now and without a doubt the best present you could get anyone in need need of a new phone.

It would be unfair for me to not share this with you guys, but what you choose to do with this info is all up to you… I suggest you use this info for your benefit!
