A number of weeks ago Samsung was kind enough to send us two Galaxy S smartphones -- the AT&T Captivate and the T-Mobile Vibrant. At first glance both handsets are just simply beautiful -- with a very clean design. The Super AMOLED 4.0" screen is just simply captivating. I think I watched Avatar -- on the T-Mobile Vibrant -- at least three times. Avatar comes pre-installed on the Vibrant -- no such luck on the Captivate.
You will quickly notice that the Vibrant is considerably lighter than the Captivate. This is simply a design aspect and does not suggest that the Vibrant is a poorly constructed handset. I actually appreciated the fact that the Vibrant was lighter. As far as what network had the better experience -- T-Mobile or AT&T -- I had better reception with T-Mobile. That may have something to do with Magenta's next generation -- HSPA+ network.
Zev Green does a very nice job in reviewing both handsets:
