    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Pros
    Stunning Super AMOLED Display
    Thin and lightweight design

    Cons

    Can't install third-party apps
    Performance can be a bit sluggish

    Bottom Line

    The Samsung Captivate has a dazzling display, a bevy of multimedia and social networking features, and a killer camera.

    "Overall, I was pleased with the Captivate's call quality. My contacts' voices sounded clear, with ample volume and no background hissing or static. I had pretty good reception and coverage all over San Francisco."

    He likes the call quality in comparison with the phonearena review.

    So pretty much, the major con would be mediocre photo quality- which may possibly be improved with software improvements?

    Definitely getting this phone.

    My thought is that Froyo will deal with any imperfections, like TouchWiz.

    And yet the article talks about how the camera didn't really stack up against the other phones they compared it against.
