i've got this phone and its a great phone but one issue i found is the battery life, it doesn't last that long. I charge it almost every other day and i barely use it.
i left it overnight and it lost 25% of the battery, no apps or background apps were running. gps, wifi, bluetooth, etc were all off too..
performance is great, has good apps, screen is awesome. just wish the battery life is a little better.
desisuy, 17 Dec 2010I bought Nokia N8 early this week, great phone, great camera and call quality. Personally I am... moreI did the same. I had Captivate before then I bought N8 and I am a BIG NOKIA fan. And N8 not bad at all but something just not right with this phone. Now I'm selling my N8 and going back to Captivate.
cannot believe that some of u guys still go for Symbian, it just has too many hiccups and although the n8 might be a good phone with nice camera and all, a smartphone nowadays are made by its apps, and just there we can see why Symbian is going down and losing their shares in the mobile industry. gps might be good on nokia, but if I want a good phone, I'd rather buy a seperate gps before killing myself with Symbian, until meego comes maybe. Apart from all this, Give nokia respect for not jumping in the same cart as all the other manufacturers. I wont settle for nokia, because I love android, which is currently taking over the mobile market. stop fussing and ask normal people about phones, go do proper research, there are many companies testing the phones for us. compare these phones on these sites and then decide
faraz, 16 Dec 2010Im considering buying this phone or Nokia N8. What do you guys think I should get. thank youI bought Nokia N8 early this week, great phone, great camera and call quality. Personally I am a big fan of Nokia but somehow N8 is not as good as it was suppose to be. Today I returned N8 and bought this Captivate and I gotta say this phone is awesome, definitely over N8. I luv it.

venkata sudheer, 05 Dec 2010Hi Nokia N8 Fan,
No offence but what the c*&p are you talking, Symbian has less than 900... morefor your information, N8 HAS gorilla glass and can do everything you just mentioned, it can play divx/xvid out of the box too which not all androids play it.
anyway, it's nice phone but as always no secondary camera and the GPRS just class 12 not 33 with its camera only 5mp
IF lG optimus one is getting a update to 2.3 then its a matter of time that it will be announced for Captivate as well ...as this has much better hardware to go with the ...
imo i897 looks more chic than i9000
will definitely go for i897 instead of i9000
fadz, 07 Dec 2010I want to know if this phone is upgradeable to android 2.3? i have no idea,even the samsung company keep hesitate whether want to keep Galaxy S update anot. . .
