Although we’ve been talking about the Samsung Epic 4G for the past few days, which is probably the most notable iteration of the Galaxy S family, we also managed to get our hands on AT&T’s iteration, the Samsung Captivate. While it lacks some extras that the Epic 4G offers such as a front-facing camera, 4G connectivity, and a slide-out physical keyboard, it sports a slimmer lightweight design. Let’s not forget that it still sports the rest of the goods including Samsung’s flagship Super AMOLED display technology, Android v2.1, Swype text input, TouchWiz, Media Hub, a 5 megapixel camera, and HD video recording.
The Captivate also comes packed with 16GB of storage with support for microSD card expansion. With a 32GB microSD card, users can have nearly 48GB of total storage. On the other hand, the Epic 4G only offers 1GB of internal storage, bringing the total to just a mere 33GB with a 32GB microSD card. Other embedded features include a panorama mode, Bluetooth 3.0, microUSB, WiFi, and TV Output.
As always, we have a bonus. This time around, we lined up the Samsung Captivate with the Samsung Epic 4G, both of which are Galaxy S devices. While the Epic 4G looks great, is lightweight, and feels great to hold, the Captivate offers a sharper, slimmer look. Naturally, that’s mainly due to the lack of a slide-out physical keyboard. We’ll also line these devices up with Verizon’s Fascinate, another Galaxy S device, as soon as we get our hands on it.
