Samsung’s Continuum expands their Galaxy of smartphones
20 March 2011
Excerpt: I have a couple of standardized disclaimers to make here. The first is that this is exactly my second smartphone review, (also involving the Android OS) and I must say that I’m already developing preferences. One of those preferences is for a hardware keyboard.
Conclusion: I must inform anyone reading this review that Continuum is a rather poorly executed concept from Samsung. From the weakly implemented and inherently flawed ticker display, to the sluggish performance; the Samsung Continuum is not a phone that I’d recommend if you have other choices at the same...
Conclusion: With that being said, for the right person looking for a smaller, more pocket friendly Galaxy S smartphone — the Samsung Continuum could be the perfect handset. Unfortunately I am not that person, and I suspect an overwhelming majority of Android users would tend to agree.
Conclusion: If you're a social networking butterfly or are addicted to news feeds, the Samsung Continuum is for you. The timely status and news updates that wake only the Ticker display will leave you tickled.
Pros: Fast Android smartphone with high end specs., Pro: Fast, high end specs, Super AMOLED display. Narrower than other Galaxy S phones which is a plus if you have small hands.
Cons: Main display too small relative to its high resolution, still on Froyo OS 2.1 (an update will come some day)., Con: Main display is a bit cramped, Ticker isn't a great step forward in technology unless you're an information and social networking addict. Phone is slippery, Android OS 2.1 won't win...
Summary: Hey look it’s another phone review! Today for review I’ve got the Samsung Galaxy S Continuum from Verizon Wireless. This phone is sleek and nicely made, it features dual screens, one is the main screen and the other is a smaller rectangular ticker style so you can always have instant updates.
Pros: Bright and beautiful screen, Second screen for constant updates, Fast and responsive, Phone is sleek and well made, Easy to use
Cons: No sure about the second screen, Verizon junk installed, It uses Bing
Summary: The Samsung Continuum is the new Samsung Android phone that joins the Galaxy S. It offers a secondary ticker display which is very useful as it can multitask. Yet it requires some tweaking so this in turn says that it won’t appeal to everyone.
Cons: + High resolution sAMOLED screen, + Ticker screen is a great feature, + Thin and light, + Bright LED flash, + Great battery life, - Cramped onscreen keyboard, - Low amount of RAM limits multitasking, - Call quality (likely due to hardware), - Limited application integration with ticker
Summary: Samsung has pushed the Android envelope with the Continuum. The ticker not only saves time; it can also help you kill time. However, you'll sacrifice both performance and screen real estate versus other $199 smart phones, including the 4-inch Samsung Fascinate and the 4.3-inch Droid X .
Excerpt: The Samsung Continuum joins the Verizon Wireless network as another addition to the popular Galaxy S line of Android smartphones. The one thing that allows the Continuum to stand apart from other phones in the line is the fact that the Continuum has an independent ticker display.
Summary: The Samsung Continuum is the latest Samsung Galaxy S phone to be released on Verizon. Featuring a unique 1.8 inch Super AMOLED ticker screen below the main display, the Continuum offers a new way to view and use smartphones. Is the ticker enough to make the Continuum worth it?
