  • Diego!

    Ugh, it’s horrible!

    It looks like a Blackberry Phone.

    What the heck is going on @ Samsung? With the “original” Samsung Galaxy S, they copied or let’s say, “were inspired” by iPhone’s design.

    With this Captivate, they are sure “inspired” on a Blackberry’s design.

    I think they should hire a new cellphone designer and please, that guy has to bear in mind that people want flash in their phone’s camera. Thank youuuu
