Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S)
Phone Scoop Review
Jul 18, 2010 by Eric M. Zeman
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? read review ›

My OS: Vista 32bit
Good display both inside and outside
Size & weight are small enough that I donât notice it in my pocket.
Standard headphone output, holds micro SD cards
Overall operation ( DROID)
Droid 2.1 (on the newest phone out there!?!)
Short battery life
NO support from either AT&T or Samsung ***NONE***
No way to sync to Outlook 2007 without installing Exchange server or hacking the phone or installing buggy 3rd party USB drivers.
Must download apps from online Market, unless you hack the OS and void warrantee.
Micro USB port ( not the standard small USB)
Heat from usage is a bit high.
Multiple AT&T apps run without intervention of user, further draining battery and RAM. (I can at least control my WM6 phone.)
I would have given this phone a higher rating, but due to significant lack of support by either the manufacturer or retailer, Iâm bringing mine back. I'll wait until something better comes along. In the mean time, I'm going back to my HTC Tilt.
Note* I never even got far enough to try my Blue-tooth, so no comment.
