Mainly its styling and hardware, such as the impressive Super AMOLED screen and 1GHz Hummingbird processor

from PhoneArena (over 4 years ago)

When it comes right down to it, there’s a lot we like about the Samsung Fascinate, mainly its styling and hardware, such as the impressive Super AMOLED screen and 1GHz Hummingbird processor. But at the same time we feel that the software, mainly the TouchWiz UI, is holding the device back. While... More

The Samsung Fascinate is a phone that might just push too many buttons

from Phone Scoop (over 4 years ago)

First, there's Bing. Then there's the social networking integration, which was buggy for me and felt half-baked.

From where we stand, the answer is an obvious "no." It's not that the device isn't a solid phone or a reasonably capable Android representative... More

The phone hardware is pretty good!

from Gizmodo (over 4 years ago)

The Fascinate is a sad emblem of what happens when a carrier's worst instincts and moneylust run unchecked (those big branding deals are worth millions). Piled on top of the occasionally horrific aesthetic liberties Samsung's taken with Android, it's an abomination. And yet, these things are totally... More
