Review: Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T
The Captivate Glide runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with Samsung's TouchWiz. The system software is identical to that which is found on the Samsung Galaxy S II, and Galaxy S II Skyrocket.
The Captivate Glide has seven customizable home screens, which is more than enough to cram full of apps, shortcuts, and widgets. Though the home screens can be viewed in landscape mode (when the slider is open), the widgets may not function or look right if you put too many on the screen. The main menu defaults to a basic, alpha-order grid layout, but it can be set to an alpha list, or set to a user-customized grid.
TouchWiz lets you adjust all of the home screens at the same time. Pressing and holding the home screen brings up a new dashboard that lets users customize each of the home screens from one spot rather than adjusting each screen one-by-one.
The user interface was quick and light on its feet. It never felt bogged down or slow. I was able to jump from app to app and screen to screen with zero delay. With a dual-core processor under the hood, it has plenty of power to get things done and it performed well no matter what I threw at it.
