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.

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

Samsung Captivate Glide Review

Phone Arena
24 November 2011
  • 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 (AT&T)

CNET
21 November 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Captivate Glide is one of AT&T's most powerful QWERTY smartphones, and at $150, it won't cost you an arm and a leg. However, the ultraflat keyboard may be more hindrance than help to all but the most dedicated keyboard enthusiasts.
  • Pros: The Samsung Captivate Glide has high-end specs like AT&T's HSPA+ speeds, a dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and 720p HD video.
  • Cons: Samsung commits its typical plasticky sins with the Captivate Glide, and the phone is slippery despite the textured backing. The keyboard is too flat, and call quality was variable.

Samsung Captivate Glide review

SlashGear
17 November 2011
  • 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.

Samsung Captivate Glide Written Review by Sydney

phonedog.com
6 October 2011
  • Summary: If you love having a physical keyboard, there are few options out there. There are even fewer options if you want a quality, high-end phone. The Captivate Glide is an excellent all-around smartphone, but it fails in perhaps the most important area, the keyboard. The physical QWERTY is simply too wide with keys that are too flat with not enough travel and feedback.
