Review: Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T
The software dialpad pops up when the phone button is pressed. From there, it is easy to access the call log, favorites, and the main contact list.
The Captivate Glide for AT&T includes the same Samsung "Buddies Now" home screen widget found on other recent Galaxy-branded smartphones. It lets you populate home screen panels with links to up to nine buddies. It loads up a full-screen carousel with the faces of your nine top friends. Scroll through the list for easy access to calling and messaging tasks.
If you want to look at a buddy's entire contact card, simply press their face and you'll be taken into the contact application. This app can be used instead of setting a handful of contact shortcuts to the home screen.

The full contact application is the stock Android version. When viewing contacts, swipe them to the right to call them, or swipe to the left to send them a message.
