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. There are a few things that prevent the Captivate from being 100% awesome, though. Find out where it falls short.
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.
Hands-on with the new Samsung Galaxy S series phone, including the Captivate for AT&T, Fascinate for Verizon, Epic 4G for Sprint, and Vibrant for T-Mobile.
The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a heavy-hitter that trounces much of the competition. This Android flagship from the world leader in smartphones struts its stuff with pride, despite several pain points that hold it back.
The Galaxy Note8 is Samsung's ultimate flagship for 2017. The Note8 takes the attractive design language from Samsung's own Galaxy S8 and pairs it with one of the largest screens and best cameras available.
The LG K20 V is one of the least expensive Android smartphones available from Verizon Wireless. This low-cost handset features basics such as a 5.3-inch 720p screen and entry-level Snapdragon 435 processor from Qualcomm.

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.
Fast way to toggle swype/regular keyboard?
BUT, as far as a quicker way to change input types, whether it's the browser or a text message, t...
connecting to PC??
After some research, i downloaded Kies, but once I got it running, it said an update was available and then the update took 10 hours to finish and i had to go to work.
i've uninstalled kies and the drivers multiple times, pulled the battery of the phone, and any other norm...
I would just like to point two things out
