Icant wait til my contract is up so I can upgrade. The battery life is awful on the captivate even eith ur stettings on all programs disabled. Not happy at all nbecause the poor battery life dimineshes the features I do like...
Captivate is pretty good. ive had it for more than a year. the camera is amazing, so is the video. the screen and the speaker is really loud when playing mp3.the screen size is i think the perfect size for a smart phone. 4.5 inch for me is too big. less than 4 inch is kind of small.
I bought one when they were first released and loved it. The first ones as with anything new had various glitches that they have since fixed and the newest Captivates are amazing phones! I will never own anything other than a Samsung phone with the Android operating system!
GJ, 06 Dec 2011Can anyone tell me is it possible to use skype on this phone ? Thank you.It had never worked untill I Updated the android system. After using KIES to update the android system it worked perfectly.
people.. please stay away from odin to flash this phone.. i had a bad experience with odin flashing this phone and now my phone is hard bricked..
Amazing phone, have had it for one year so far and no problems at all. Battery life is great if you install a task-killing app.
singh.., 28 Apr 2012i read it in the specification dat it doesn't have radio...is it so??The Galaxy S (GT-i9000) has a FM tuner chip in it that the U.S. Captivate (i897) does not.
There are rumors involving hacking the bcm4329 chip which the Captivate does have. Unfortunately, the FM tuner functionality of this chip can't be accessed or enabled for the i897.

Other phone lines do this also such as Motorola to slow down the battery draining. It's a power saving mode built into a lot of smartphones and androids because of all the power they eat up. You can easily make an adjustment that will fix this. Just run the app called Captivate Keep Alive and the problem should disappear.
I would not suggest this phone to anyone. I have this phone at the moment ant it gives me so much trouble. The mp3 player skips, ringtones skip, it force closes on many things, the loud speaker is going out, and the reception is getting worse. Take note that this phone has been in an otterbox all of its life, and the only time its out is to take the battery out after it has frozen. Do not get a samsung captivate or any samsung smartphone.
