Good phones with good keyboards are few and far between — is the Captivate Glide the one you've been waiting for?

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: If you have been waiting for a decent Android phone which allows you to use a physical keypad, you might try the Samsung Captivate Glide . Albeit not a razor-thin phone, this Android phone is rather sleek and perhaps even sexy. It succeeds the Epic 4G and looks like a cross between the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy S II.
