The battery is not that bad. I was using one at partial life and testing the Hd recording, trying to get wifi, and surfing the web for the main part of the couple hour period and didn't get low battery til the end. When you use so many features it will be drained. Yes try to get a li poly one deffinately. Also just have a back up and u will have more than enough juice. my only complaint is one speaker that is not to loud
Thanks Erasto, i got one today and will see how long does the battery last. i checked other places on the internet as well. The other guys too say the same thing as you do but the Vibrant battery is very very bad.

I am going to find the same out tomorrow if the LiPo battery is of the same dimensions or not

Erasto, 03 Sep 2010I own one of this phones and I'm amazed of how long the battery lasts compared to my previous ... more Same issue,if its an issue, here. i told my wife it seems to take long to charge, but still its freaking amazing how long it can last! im planing on grabbing a couple of spare batteries,since my corporate % gets them half off! although i hardly have a chance to waste the freaking battery regardless of online radio,wifi,bluetooth all on!

Bobcat, 02 Sep 2010Can some1 tell how to put music from computer to my Captivate? Ive download it Double twist bu... moreYou have to ensure that you are choosing the right place to store it. The captivate internal memory is viewed as an SD card by itself, and then if you have an external memory card, it is viewed as a separate place to store. You have to hook it up to your computer and the first removable drive that comes up is the internal memory. Try choosing the external memory. That is the only frustrating thing about this device is that both the phone and the actual memory card seem the same when browsing in the phone.

I have used my phone as music player through a trip and talking and battery went for about 8 hrs. Recharging does take several hours. I usually do overnight recharge.
Bobcat, 02 Sep 2010Can some1 tell how to put music from computer to my Captivate? Ive download it Double twist bu... moreQuite simple, first you would have to install the software and drives from your phone to your PC. This is the only way for you to be able to open your music player and download music. If you are running Windows XP, it should detect the phone right away. There are 4 sets of drivers that need to be installed. You can download'em from www.samsung.com AT&T does not ship the phone with software or at least mine came without it.
Once installed, just go about your normal way as any other USB device. Open the phone icon, then scroll and find the player and transfer your files. I have additional micro sd where I store music on my phone.
Can any user let me know as to the exact talk time achieved and a throw some light on the battery usage status and the charging time?
I an using a Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile) the battery is pathetic. I barely manage 24 hours with 6 hours of tak-time and no internet usage at all. Plus it takes 4 -5 hours to get fully charged.

... moreSorry, I didn't realize GSMArena did that kind of thing to links.
To find SuperRooterExtreme, just search for that on Google, and it'll be the first link. Or you can do what DroidforEver said too.

The case of this looks a little more sturdy than i9000 Galaxy S, but has no radio. I think the only let down of the European version, which I believe is the standard samsung version is the case.
