I have a couple of standardized disclaimers to make here.The first is that this is exactly my second smartphone review, (also involving the Android OS) and I must say that I’m already developing preferences. One of those preferences is for a...

If you’re on Verizon or unattached, the Continnum is a good choice for Android if you're focused on immediate functionality over long-term support and theoretical freedom. Priced at $100 with a new contract, the Continuum is not just fast and...

There's a lot to like about the Samsung Continuum, especially if you're more of a texter and a surfer than a talker. While the voice quality tests were somewhat disappointing, and there was a weird crash when I first tried to set up Wi-Fi, the...

Although this is a Galaxy S phone, there’s a significant difference in hardware between the Samsung Continuum and other Galaxy S phones. (The most obvious being the smaller screen size to make room for that ticker display, of course.) The phone is...

The Samsung Continuum is a great phone overall, but I’m not to sure about the second smaller screen. Yes it’s nice to have the updates right there for you at all times, but I have to wonder if just a larger screen would have been better...

The Samsung Continuum’s ticker is a great feature, and it’s surprising that something similar hasn’t been released before. When playing games or browsing the web, just take a glance at the ticker and you know what time it is without...

If you like to be constantly in the loop with your news feeds and social networks, you might find the ticker display useful. Once we pared down our feeds, we certainly did-and we loved the fact that we could control our music via the display. But if...

We've been talking about the Samsung Continuum for a while now. We were able to get a hands-on with it before it released, so we've hashed over the hardware, and I don't think there's anything more that can be said about TouchWiz. This...

You have to give credit to the Samsung Continuum. It's got an awesome screen and some successful design innovations. But it looks like the designers, in the process of simplifying the interface, have managed to mess up the e-mail software. Samsung...

The Samsung Continuum is an odd duck. It's certainly nothing we'd ever imagine hitting the smartphone market by force, and it almost seems like the addition of the ticker panel airs on the gimmicky side of the spectrum, rather than being an...

The Samsung Continuum joins the Verizon Wireless network as another addition to the popular Galaxy S line of Android smartphones. The one thing that allows the Continuum to stand apart from other phones in the line is the fact that the Continuum has...

It appears that Samsung is truly trying to make their Galaxy S line of devices for everyone. If you desire a sAMOLED screen but have been turned off by the large 4” screens, the Continuum may be for you. It’s great to see Samsung offering...

The Samsung Continuum Android smartphone on the Verizon network takes a radical approach to extending battery life by adding a second, very small 1.8-by-5-inch front-facing screen. The second screen can display the time and a scrolling ticker with...
