Review: Samsung Captivate
AT&T has stuffed the Captivate with a lot of unnecessary bloatware. There are probably a dozen applications stuck on the Captivate that are useless and will go unused by most customers. This wouldn't be a problem if you could delete the bloatware. You can't. As with the bloat AT&T left on the Motorola Backflip, the bloatware on the Captivate is there to stay.
It clutters up your menu and eats away at memory that could be used for other applications. This would be a bigger issue if the Captivate didn't offer such a large amount of memory for applications. It's more an annoyance than anything else, but still.
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.
