Samsung Continuum Review - PCWorld

 

When we first heard about the Samsung Continuum ($200 with a two-year contract from Verizon), we were skeptical but intrigued. Does a full-touch smartphone need a secondary "ticker" display? Ultimately we found the ticker display more useful than...

Secondary display can be useful

Search and Maps powered by Bing, not Google

The attractive and speedy Samsung Continuum’s secondary ticker display can be useful, but it isn't for everyone.

Samsung Continuum (Verizon Wireless)

 

A clever ticker display that streams social updates, news, and more helps this Android phone stand out in the crowd.

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...

Samsung Continuum (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Samsung Continuum features two displays; the smaller ticker window is a great tool for quickly accessing information and multitasking. The smartphone also has a 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera with HD video capture. It offers full wireless...

The smaller screen makes for a more cramped typing experience. Ticker display currently isn't available for third-party apps. Runs Android 2.1, and Bing is set as the default search engine. You can't uninstall preloaded apps and services.

More than just a gimmick, the Samsung Continuum's secondary display is a useful management and multitasking tool, but its constant flow of information might not appeal to everybody.

Samsung Continuum (Verizon Wireless)

 

Smaller and rounder than your average Android super phone at 4.9 by 2.3 by 0.5 inches (HWD) and 4.25 ounces, the Continuum is clearly designed for people with small, precise fingers. It's made of black plastic, but it feels solid and expensive. The...

Small and light. Feels well-built. Ticker display shows useful information

Mediocre voice quality. Redundant social-networking and e-mail clients. Ticker can show old data

The Samsung Continuum's secondary display has potential, but the software on this petite Android smartphone needs some fine-tuning.

A few months ago when the Samsung Fascinate, a Galaxy S smartphone, was released for Verizon, it was the first device for the carrier to sport a Super AMOLED display. Now a new Galaxy S-branded model has hit the streets, just in time for the Holiday...

Samsung previously piqued my interested with it's Galaxy S Fascinate, so I've been excited to give the Continuum a try. The Continuum is much like the Fascinate except it has a 1.8” 480×96 AMOLED “ticker” display underneath the main screen for...

The Samsung Continuum entered the Android scene on November 11th, quickly becoming the world's first dual-screen Android smartphone. Priced at $199.99 on contract at launch, the Continuum was the latest addition to the Galaxy S collection, and with it...

At the end of the day, the Samsung Continuum is a niche handset, designed to appeal to the Android community looking for a fresh take on the Galaxy S line up. Choosing between the Verizon Wireless Samsung Fascinate and the Samsung Continuum depends...

Review: Samsung Continuum

 

Samsung spins Android with a rare dual screen design.

Good form factor ; Clever Ticker display ; Capable 5MP camera with 720p video ; TouchWiz handy for newcomers ; Inexpensive for the speed and features

Forced use of Bing ; Samsung slow on Android upgrades ; Outperformed by 2011 phones ; Main screen may be too dense for big-fingered owners

Hardware, design, and feature setBefore we begin, it's a great idea to read our Fascinate review. You'll get a lot of the core experience of the phone from this review and can compare it against the Continuum.In the hand, the Continuum feels

Samsung Continuum Review

 

It is currently available exclusively from Verizon Wireless for $200 with a new two-year service agreement

Super AMOLED screen really shines ; Secondary "ticker" display is surprisingly handy ; Quick and responsive ; Good external speaker ; Camera produces good shots, if you're careful and/or skilled

Voice quality is less than desired ; Video quality also could be better

While the voice quality tests were somewhat disappointing, and there was a weird crash when I first tried to set up Wi-Fi, the phone performed very well in all other respects. It has a slim shape and a light weight so it's easy to hold, it has two...

Although this is a Galaxy S phone, there's a significant difference in hardware between the Samsung Continuum and other Galaxy S phones. (The most obvious being
