Default Review: The Samsung Captivate Glide For AT&T

One of the first things you notice when you pick up the Captivate Glide is how light it is. Itís not the thinnest phone youíll ever see, but even with a four-row QWERTY keyboard in tow, the Glide feels comparable in weight to an iPhone 4S. Itís lack of heft is due in large part to its plastic body, and while it definitely helps keep the ounces off, it doesnít do much to give the device a sturdy feel.

Take the Glideís rear, for example. Much like on the Focus S, Samsung has fitted the battery cover with a nice grippy textured finish. Pop that bad boy off though (be careful!), and youíll be looking at an incredibly flimsy piece of plastic. My jaw would clench whenever I had to remove or install the thing, as I was afraid I would accidentally damage it.

When the Glide is closed it feels solid enough, but that soon changes when you slide the keyboard open. The slide mechanism leaps into action with little provocation, and thereís a little bit of play between the screen and keyboard halves. Itís a fairly minor gripe, but a more solid slide could have gone a long way in making the hardware feel more robust.
