Samsung Captivate Glide (AT&T) Review


Right now, the Samsung Captivate Glide is your best choice on AT&T if you want Android plus a physical keyboard. It offers solid performance with a bright display and strong audio. However, the flat keyboard on the Glide doesn't provide the best...

Bright AMOLED display with vibrant colors, Solid overall performance, Good audio quality

Keys feel flat, Relatively short battery life, Camera a bit slow, Sluggish "4G" speeds

Samsung Captivate Glide review: Thumbs ready


The Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T Wireless is long overdue. The market is brimming of dual-core Android devices and the slide-out QWERTY packing Samsung Captivate Glide has only just arrived.

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with WVGA (480 x 800 pixels) resolution ; Android OS v2.3.5 with TouchWiz 4 launcher ; 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2...

All-plastic body ; No dedicated camera button ; Lack of Galaxy S II branding, despite the eye-poking performance and software similarity

Samsung Captivate Glide review


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 The DoubleTime is outdated, slow, and ugly, while the Glide is modern, fast, and sleek.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...

Solid keyboard ; Overall zippy performance ; Good call quality

Poor noise cancellation ; No LTE or Android 4.0 ; Unimpressive screen ; Incredibly slow camera

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

When it comes to releasing new devices, Samsung and the rest of the manufacturer bunch doesn't always aim for the top of the ladder – case in point, the Samsung Captivate Glide, a dual-core smartphone with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display and a slide-out...

This certainly isn’t the Galaxy S II, but it’s pretty darn nice. Take a look at the brief comparisons in the videos above to other devices on AT&T right this moment, then see if you’ve got any other questions you’d like to ask and ask them in the...

Samsung Captivate Glide Review


Before rushing to judgment, don't let its model name fool you for one bit, well, that's because the Samsung Captivate Glide isn't merely a rehashed device with a physical keyboard. Rather, it's a transitive smartphone that's tastefully modernized,...

Samsung Captivate Glide Written Review by Sydney


In a world where smartphone manufacturers battle over a few millimeters to earn the title of having the thinnest smartphone, there's just no place for a phone with a physical keyboard. The added bulk isn't as attractive as a phone that's a mere seven...

Beautiful Super AMOLED display; TouchWiz 4.0 with a newly refined look and feel; HSPA+ device; speedy performance with little to no lag; great battery life

Poorly designed physical keyboard; dull and uninspired hardware design; HSPA+ speeds were disappointing

Regardless of how well the phone performs in other areas, the main reason you're interested in it is probably the keyboard. The keyboard was poorly designed and difficult to use; therefore, I wouldn't recommend the Captivate Glide.

Samsung Captivate Glide


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...

Samsung Captivate Glide review


It seems that lately Samsung has been trying to cover all levels of the smartphone market, and with most carriers too. With the Samsung Captivate Glide they've done just that over on AT&T. Along with the Doubletime and a few other phones they have the...

Overall I’m actually pretty pleased with the Captivate Glide for what it is. Not a top end flagship phone but definitely better than mid-range. It has a surprisingly decent feel that doesn’t seem too cheap and is as close as you can get to a Galaxy S...

Samsung Captivate Glide Video Review Part 2


Expert review by:

Samsung Captivate Glide SGH-I927


The Samsung Captivate Glide can be thought of much like a Galaxy S2 with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, though it doesn't get to carry the Galaxy S2 badge.

Physical Keyboard, Great Battery Life, Snappy Interface, Dual-Core, Vivid Screen

Only 1GHz, AT&T Bloatware, Slow "4G," Flimsy Battery Cover, Only 720p Recording

Recording through the front facing camera also leaves much to be desired. Rather than utilizing anywhere near the full 1.3MP it has to offer, your limited to just 640x480. Next Page: Media
