    Attack of the Show is going to review the Samsung Captivate on G4 at 7p.m or (4.pm eastern)

    I predict they will give it a 4 out of 5 simplt because of flash..
    because thats what they gave to the Verizon version just because of the lack of flash...

    but who cares about flash? it deserves a five

    I really don't care about the flash because I prefer to use a dSLR camera for photography and yes I carry it everywhere I go just like my Capt. LOL

    You should see the the flash on the Motorola RIZR, that shit can really blind you. But yeah, most other phones fail and the flash only shines for about a feet or two ahead of you.

    They really should just advertise the flash as an anti toe stubbing light for late night runs to the bathroom. Thats pretty much all I want it for anyway.

    The Verizon version actually does have a flash. Its the tmobile version that doesn't have it. Also they gave both the Vibrant and Captivate 5 out of 5

    Well, the iPhone doesn't have a removable battery, so ha! When my battery dies, I just put in a new one, allowing the charge time on my phone to be...0.00, or I guess however many seconds it takes me to open the back cover and put in a new battery.

    they showed it on friday they gave it a 5 out 5 mostly because the price on amazon is $60
    as for the flash I dont really care either it has alot of settings to make up for no flash. from my experience with recent phones.. pictures with flash never look good anyway

    You'd think people had never heard of a "flashlight" until smartphones were invented...

    Could anything with no working GPS really deserve 5 stars?

    Flash isn't just used for pictures. It helps with video as well. Not having flash is lame in 2010. Not having a front facing camera is lame as well.

    These shows are useless. They evaluate phones based on specs and 20 minutes of playing rather than actual usage and research of user opinions/complaints.

    they gave the vibrant a 4 out of 5 just because it didnt have a flash. the vibrant and captivate are basically the same thing. they have the same amount of memory, same processor, same screen... though they didnt mention that the vibrant can be a hot spot and that the captivate cant..
    so therefore i thought the captivate was going to get a 4 out of 5 too.
    i think it deserves a 5 out 5.




    i never buy my phones from at&t.. with their dumb mail in rebates...its as if im lending them money.

    ^^

    They actually gave the Vibrant a 5 out of 5. What are you talking about lol? Anyhow, they will be reviewing the Epic on Monday and as we know, it has a flash and ffc. But I'm sure they'll find something to criticize the phone (price tag, $10 4g tax, invisible capacitive buttons) ;)

    The find it with everything they review including iphone.

    if you saw they gave the vibrant a 5 out of 5 then im mistaken..
    i get confused on the models that arent the captivate haha (i know the epic has the keyboard)

    the fascinate must of been the one that recieved 4 out of 5...

    4G is just smoke and mirrors..in previous episodes they stated that 4g coverage is very very rare and not many cities have it because the 4g coverage is so tiny. They also stated that people are getting charged for something that rarily gets utilized... not many people ever get to use it...

    p.s: one thing i dont like about AOTS is that Olivia Munn Doesnt do the show anymore..I wonder what shes doing now?? they made the show awesome
