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. For the right user, the Continuum would be perfect with the exception of Bing and the limitation of Android 2.1. Based on those two caveats, I must deduct two points from the score.
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 . We also wish that you didn't have to enter account information more than once for services such as Facebook and Twitter.
