Samsung Captivate From AT&T

Category: Cell Phones - Date: June 12, 2011

AT&T is widely known as the carrier for the iPhone, but die hard Android fans can call AT&T their home with the Samsung Captivate. And since it runs on Android you can download any of their 80,000+ apps in the Android Market to enhance your smartphone experience.

Visually, the Samsung Captivate sports a 4 inch screen which is bigger than the 3.5 inch iPhone 4 but smaller than the 4.3 inch HTC Evo 4G and Motorola Droid X. This Super AMOLED screen has a 800×480 resolution for extra wide viewing. The size and weight is comparable to an iPhone4. It measures 2.5 inches wide, 4.8 inches tall and is 0.4 inches thick. It weighs in at a mere 4.2 ounces.

There is a 5 megapixel rear camera but no front facing camera. The 5MP camera does not have flash which is a big downside since the camera becomes useless in dimly lit situations. Some nifty features about the camera are the available scene modes that are commonly found on point and shoot digital cameras. There is also a panorama mode which allows you to stitch together pictures to create a larger shot. The Captivate shoots videos in 720p HD which can possibly replace your Flip mini.

This Android powered smartphone has a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and has 16GB of memory (expandable with a microSD card to 32GB).
