Samsung Captivate Glide Review
27 September 2013
Excerpt: Samsung announced Samsung Captivate Glide in US. It seems that Galaxy series is going to be a super vital tonic for Samsung mobile industry. As we have already observed that Galaxy S2 is being loved by Smartphone lovers all over the world and it is being preferred over iPhone4 by a majority of high end mobile users. Samsung Captivate Glide is a super solid sliding QWERTY Android Gingerbread Smartphone having a 4.3 inches large capacitive touch screen.
The Samsung Captivate Glide Combines Best of Touchscreen and QWERTY
30 September 2012
Summary: Additional comments: Document editor and file manager pre-installed. Stereo Bluetooth. No radio. Corning Gorilla Glass for excellent scratch resistance. Touch-sensitive controls. All plastic. Very similar to the GS II without the branding. Camera provides touch focus as well as face detection; full editing software provided. Sound player allows MP3 and MP4 files. Expectedly, Google provides functional integration package.
Summary: Right now, the Samsung Captivate Glide is your best choice on AT&T if you want Android plus a physical keyboard. It offers solid performance with a bright display and strong audio. However, the flat keyboard on the Glide doesn't provide the best tactile feedback, and the phone offered below-average battery life on our tests. Plus, you don't get 4G LTE, so this handset isn't future-proof.
Good phones with good keyboards are few and far between — is the Captivate Glide the one you've been waiting for?
15 December 2011
Summary: If you can’t wrap your mind (or fingers) around the idea of relying solely a on-screen keyboard, you should absolutely buy the Captivate Glide. In effect, the phone is a slightly smaller, much thicker Galaxy S II — a very good phone — with a QWERTY keyboard underneath. The keyboard is good, too, or at least as good as a keyboard can be on a phone this large.
Pros: Solid keyboard, Overall zippy performance, Good call quality
Cons: Poor noise cancellation, No LTE or Android 4.0, Unimpressive screen, Incredibly slow camera
Conclusion: After seeing nothing but some stellar Android smartphones back-to-back, like the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II and the 4G LTE Skyrocket , it’s hard to imagine the Samsung Captivate getting some credible recognition following those two. Surprisingly enough, it’s able to establish its own identity by proving to be a commendable solution with its useful physical keyboard.
Pros: Reasonably priced, Fast HSPA+ speeds, Useable physical keyboard
Cons: Below average 720p video recording, Flimsy build quality, Paltry internal storage
Samsung Captivate Glide – the Galaxy S2 with a QWERTY keyboard is finally here
24 November 2011
Conclusion: Overall, the Samsung Captivate Glide is a great addition to the list of Android smartphones – having the Galaxy S2 with a QWERTY keyboard is pretty awesome, and if you need a good phone for everyday work or even entertainment, you should definitely check it out.
Conclusion: This device is surprisingly high quality. There were only two moments when I had my doubts, one of them being when I put the battery in for the first time since the back cover is so very very thin, and the other when I first started to hit the power button and realized I'd have to find a new way to hold the handset because the slide-out keyboard wasn't held nearly as tight as it was on other recent keyboard phone models from other manufacturers.
Conclusion: For hardware QWERTY lovers looking for Android love on AT&T, the Samsung Captivate Glide is a solid pick. This mid-range phone has plenty of power for average users and the Super AMOLED display is as always super-colorful and bright. We wish the keyboard's keys had more travel; it's a bit like typing on a hard rubber mat, but the keyboard is roomy and serviceable.
