Review: Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T
The stock Android browser does a fine job on the Captivate Glide. The Captivate Glide's high-density display helps make web sites look good, and they are delivered and rendered quickly on the phone. Even under somewhat poor network conditions, the Captivate Glide's browser performed consistently well.
The Captivate Glide offers a wide range of user customization, thanks in part to the TouchWiz user interface skin. As noted, it has seven home screen panels, dozens of widgets, plenty of wallpapers, and tools that make adjusting these settings easy.
The Captivate Glide from Samsung adds a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to the familiar look of Samsung's Galaxy phones. It is fast, svelte, and has a great display.
