Good form factor, Clever Ticker display, Capable 5MP camera with 720p video, TouchWiz handy for newcomers, Inexpensive for the speed and features.
Secondary "ticker" display is surprisingly handy, Quick and responsive, Good external speaker.
Phone is sleek and well made, Easy to use.
Forced use of Bing, Samsung slow on Android upgrades, Outperformed by 2011 phones, Main screen may be too dense for bigfingered owners.
Voice quality is less than desired, Video quality also could be better
No sure about the second screen, Verizon junk installed.
Search and Maps powered by Bing, not Google, Narrow display makes typing difficult.
Small main display, Ticker causes some performance lag.

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...90

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...70

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...-
