You may remember Aamir Khan endorsing this phone, boasting about the phones 3D Surround sound feature. Although I didn't really find the feature spectacular, what I did like was the sound quality of the phone, which was on par with the usual high standards of Samsung. The phone has stereo loudspeakers tucked under its dual slider design and a unique semicircular touch wheel design for navigating through the music player.

The phone supports a wide range of formats, which can be further expanded by third party applications that the BEAT 450 supports, thanks to the Symbian S60 platform on which it runs. The phone also supports Bluetooth stereo headsets and has a built-in FM radio. Priced at Rs. 11,000 the Samsung BEAT 450 is a really good music phone.
