captivate vs other u.s. galaxy s phones?
Ok, so I have been happy with my captivate since launch... can get pretty laggy sometimes but overall I have been happy. On Halloween my gf broke her phone so she had to get a new one. She decided to upgrade to the Fascinate(shes with Verizon) because she liked my phone so much.. I have played around a little with hers and I have to be honest hers blows mine out of the water... Everything is MUCH snappier, apps load like a snap. I would say takes an average of 5-10 secs for a app to open on my phone and bout 1-4 on hers. I ran some side by side stuff, opening last.fm and starting a station, her 1st song was 30 seconds into it before my song stared.. I ran a benchmark, hers ran through the whole test in about a minute.... took mine 6 minutes.. she has zero lag, why is this? also I noticed that looking at the Memory and she always has about 9000kb more free then i do..
Is it just the fact that mine was a launch phone and hers is brand new? am I missing something because after messing with her phone im feeling a little ripped off.
Dont get me wrong I still like my phone alot but after seeing hers I cant understand why hers seems so much more.... polished.
Also I noticed she has some of the features that captivate is supposed to be getting in the 2.2 update... color system icons etc..
