First Look: Samsung Continuum - Pocket-lint


Second screen lets you see notifications, Twitter messages, and the like, Wi-Fi hotspot option

Plastic feels cheap, home screen cluttered, do you really need two screens?

We were unimpressed with the Samsung Continuum overall since it is not being released with the latest Android 2.2 OS. Despite this let down, we were driven to give this phone a fair chance. From the moment we picked it up, we noted the cheap and...

Samsung Continuum Review - PCWorld


When we first heard about the Samsung Continuum ($200 with a two-year contract from Verizon), we were skeptical but intrigued. Does a full-touch smartphone need a secondary "ticker" display? Ultimately we found the ticker display more useful than...

Secondary display can be useful

Search and Maps powered by Bing, not Google

The attractive and speedy Samsung Continuum’s secondary ticker display can be useful, but it isn't for everyone.

Samsung Continuum (Verizon Wireless)


A clever ticker display that streams social updates, news, and more helps this Android phone stand out in the crowd.

Samsung has pushed the Android envelope with the Continuum. The ticker not only saves time; it can also help you kill time. However, you'll sacrifice both performance and screen real estate versus other $199 smart phones, including the 4-inch Samsung...

Samsung Continuum review:


The Samsung Continuum is just the latest in the company's Galaxy S series of Android phones, but it stands apart from the rest with its secondary ticker display. To be honest, we initially thought the display might be more of a gimmick than a useful...

The Samsung Continuum features two displays; the smaller ticker window is a great tool for quickly accessing information and multitasking. The smartphone also has a 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera with HD video capture. It offers full wireless...

The smaller screen makes for a more cramped typing experience. Ticker display currently isn't available for third-party apps. Runs Android 2.1, and Bing is set as the default search engine. You can't uninstall preloaded apps and services.

More than just a gimmick, the Samsung Continuum's secondary display is a useful management and multitasking tool, but its constant flow of information might not appeal to everybody.

Samsung Continuum (Verizon Wireless)


The Samsung Continuum adds a cool secondary display to a petite Android phone.

Small and light. Feels well-built. Ticker display shows useful information.

Mediocre voice quality. Redundant social-networking and e-mail clients. Ticker can show old data.

Samsung Continuum Review


A few months ago when the Samsung Fascinate, a Galaxy S smartphone, was released for Verizon, it was the first device for the carrier to sport a Super AMOLED display. Now a new Galaxy S-branded model has hit the streets, just in time for the Holiday...

Samsung Continuum Review


Samsung previously piqued my interested with it's Galaxy S Fascinate, so I've been excited to give the Continuum a try. The Continuum is much like the Fascinate except it has a 1.8” 480×96 AMOLED “ticker” display underneath the main screen for...

Samsung Continuum Review


The Samsung Continuum is an Android OS smartphone with an unusual design built around two Super AMOLED touchscreens, as well as a set of other high-end features. Jen Edwards brings us a review of this device.

Super AMOLED screen really shines ; Secondary "ticker" display is surprisingly handy ; Quick and responsive

Voice quality is less than desired ; Video quality also could be better

Samsung Continuum Review


It is currently available exclusively from Verizon Wireless for $200 with a new two-year service agreement

Super AMOLED screen really shines ; Secondary "ticker" display is surprisingly handy ; Quick and responsive ; Good external speaker ; Camera produces good shots, if you're careful and/or skilled

Voice quality is less than desired ; Video quality also could be better

While the voice quality tests were somewhat disappointing, and there was a weird crash when I first tried to set up Wi-Fi, the phone performed very well in all other respects. It has a slim shape and a light weight so it's easy to hold, it has two...
