Samsung Captivate Glide review

theverge.com
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Reviewing the Samsung Captivate Glide right after the Samsung DoubleTime is a study in contrasts. The DoubleTime is outdated, slow, and ugly, while the Glide is modern, fast, and sleek. The natural successor to the Epic 4G, the Glide is a hybrid of the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II — it has a nice 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, an acceptably recent version of Android, and though there’s no LTE it still connects to AT&T’s HSPA+ network.
  • 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 - QWERTY-powered Android for AT&T review

MobileBurn
22 December 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T is a fairly unique device in Samsung's extensive U.S. smartphone line-up. Featuring a 4-inch display and a 4-row QWERTY keyboard, the Captivate Glide has many features borrowed from both the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II families of smartphones (though it carries no Galaxy branding of its own).
  • Pros: Snappy performance, bright, colorful screen, friendly user interface
  • Cons: All-plastic construction, lackluster video recording

Samsung Captivate Glide (AT&T)

CNET
6 December 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.
  • 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

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

12 September 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Good hardware keyboard, solid performance.
  • Cons: Key travel minimal on keyboard.
