Review: Samsung Captivate
Phone Scoop takes the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S — the Captivate — for a spin to see how well it performs. The display and battery life are amazing. How do the rest of the features hold up?

The Captivate is the finest Android device to become available from AT&T. If you're looking for solid performance all around, you can't go wrong with Samsung's top-of-the-line Captivate.

Since the Samsung Captivate and Vibrant are so similar, many parts of this review are identical for both the Captivate and Vibrant. The Body, Three S's, and Wrap-Up are all unique, but most other segments of both reviews are the same.

You must have the Application Menu in customizable mode. Do this by opening the Application menu (with the bottom right home screen icon), then hitting the physical option menu button on the phone, finally click view.
