I Purchased this phone from Maniacstore last month for Rs/-15,490.
They sell the ROGER version from canada.ie samsung i927R captivate glide.
It is an awesome phone and I was very happy with the buy until 1 month after which the phone got locked and asked for some codes to open it. I got in touch with the Maniacstore guys who told to ship it back so that they can unlock the phone and send it back.
The catch is very few couriers take electronic items and that too prices are expensive.(Bluedart-Rs 2300)Other local couriers dont accept electronic items.when you take the total cost in to consideration then it became more expensive and i am not sure when it will lock itself again. so guys check these points before you buy phones from anyone.
abhi, 16 Nov 2012hey.. please suggest me.. so that i need to buy this phone... available at maniac store for Rs.16490... if interested get it and enjoy
excellent photo quality.
Wifi connects quick.
u can play HD games smoothly without any glitches.
audio quality is just fine and incredibly loud through its own in ear headphones.
battery life 2 days.
display is just awesome!
and so many other good stuffs
the only bad thing about this phone is the battery cover its toooooooooooo much thin,it can easily break.
and one more thing i would've preferred charger and usb cable separate.
At last got this phone and it rocks in many area. In spite of being android its battery backup rocks. I was able to play all high end games flawlessly. Device is silky smooth. Very happy with my glide.
can we play all hd games in this mobile.. pls answer friends.. i have never seen a video in utube showing game-play of this device
Sean, 16 Dec 2011IMO it looks like a copy of the N900's design =/Well now I believe I has been find my new smartphone (captivate glide) since the best Nokia N900
you know other better option to change N900?
Ali, 20 Sep 2012Thank you so much for your kind response,it was so helpful. My last question is about physical... moreGlad i could help you
As you said the captivate glide has capacitive keys compared to the physical keys that the xperia pro has
The downside of that is that you cant unlock the phone with those key they only work when the screen is on
A feature that i loved in the xperia is the ability to be unlock pressing the home key
In the captivate glide you will have to use the power key or (if you are using a custom locker as i do) the volume keys
I miss the feeling of a physical home key and the advantages that it gives but i get use to it
Besides that there is no physical camera button like the xperia but given it size most of the time was not useful to me
Was so close to buying this, but then found out it doesn't work on UMTS 900 which is needed for 3G on O2. Can anyone confirm this, has their unlocked Captivate Glide been working on 3G in the UK?
what sim card fits in this? UK
Theres only mico for iphone 5 and micro for iphone 4?
no mini sim?
all android high end phones like the galaxy i927 are the best in the world. they pack lots of high tech features and can readily suppliment your laptop. imaging tranfering a 1gb movie to a galaxy tab 10.1 through my galaxy i927 in less than 5mins using wifi direct. now, that's real technology. hey! u can't get this from most other OS's. I am a veteran when it comes to mobile. i'ld advice every one in the world to go and get android devices.
I seen this in the phone store yesterday when I went to get mine fixed. And it is a REALLY big phone!
The best cellphone i have ever used.. guys here believe it or not but its my 78th cell phone till date... and really its the best i have ever used.. best battery backup, camera, screen clarity and everything is just mindblowing.
