bylarwe Oct 29, 2010
22 Helpfuls 23 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Beautiful screen. Good battery life. Fast. Good speakerphone. Easily hacked.
Cons Terrible GPS performance. AT&T adds some annoyances.
Recommended it? Yes

As of October 2010 the Samsung Captivate SGH-i897 (carrier-named version of the Galaxy S) is definitely AT&T's flagship, and most desirable, Android phone.
