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

 

The QWERTY slider hasn't exactly gone the way of the dinosaur, but it's definitely approaching giant panda status. That is to say, it's become rare for a major device manufacturer to output anything other than candybar touchscreen smartphones. And why...

Beautiful 4-inch Super AMOLED display ; Long battery life ; Lightweight build ; Spacious QWERTY keyboard ; HSPA+ 21-capable

Overpriced for mid-range tier

The Captivate Glide carries on the legacy of Samsung's Galaxy S II, delivering a quality experience with the addition of a workable, slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

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 (AT&T)

 

AT&T has plenty of smartphones, but it doesn't have plenty of keyboarded smartphones. Sure, there's the Sharp FX Plus (Free, 3.5 stars) and the RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 ($49.99, 3 stars), but neither of those devices are particularly cutting edge....

Solid keyboard. Fast performance. Beautiful screen. Great battery life

Limited docking options

The Samsung Captivate Glide is the best keyboarded smartphone available on AT&T right now.

Samsung Captivate Glide (AT&T) review:

 

AT&T's portfolio of 4G QWERTY smartphones was looking fairly thin before it added the Samsung Captivate Glide. Sure, the phone runs on the carrier's HSPA+ 21 network rather than the 4G LTE network that AT&T is rolling out, but speeds will eclipse 3G,...

The Samsung Captivate Glide has high-end specs like AT&T's HSPA+ speeds, a dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and 720p HD video.

Samsung commits its typical plasticky sins with the Captivate Glide, and the phone is slippery despite the textured backing. The keyboard is too flat, and call quality was variable.

The Samsung Captivate Glide is one of AT&T's most powerful QWERTY smartphones, and at $150, it won't cost you an arm and a leg. However, the ultraflat keyboard may be more hindrance than help to all but the most dedicated keyboard enthusiasts.

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 - QWERTY-powered Android for AT&T review

 

The Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T is a fairly unique device in Samsung's extensive U.S. smartphone line-up. Featuring a 4-inch display and a 4-row QWERTY keyboard, the Captivate Glide has many features borrowed from both the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II...

Snappy performance, bright, colorful screen, friendly user interface

All-plastic construction, lackluster video recording

The Captivate Glide offers an attractive package for those who want a powerful smartphone, but aren't satisfied with a virtual keyboard for their text input. While the Captivate Glide has a few faults, it offers a mostly-positive experience, so read on...

Review: Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T

 

Samsung delivers a winner in the Captivate Glide, an Android smartphone that includes a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for the messaging minded mobile user.

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...
