Android Phone Reviews
Samsung Focus vs. Samsung Captivate

Key Differences

  • Operating System: The Captivate runs on Android, a graphical interface developed by Google that has a growing following by consumers. Google developed Android to be open and easy for developers to create new applications, and there is a large market of free or low-cost apps. Windows Phone 7 was developed by Microsoft and it should be considered a proprietary system, much like Apple’s iPhone operating system. All three operating systems — Android, iPhone OS and Windows Phone 7 — are targeting the same users who want highly visual, easy-to-use phones from which they can handle both work and life requirements.

    can i easily switch my sd memory card from my samsung impression to either the captivate or the focus?

    • yes but it needs to be a micro sd card

    • You can use it in the Captivate but not in the Focus. Windows Phone 7 doesn’t “officially” support micro SD cards. So, if you use the card out of your Impression it will be reformatted for Windows Phone 7 and all data will be lost off of card. If you just want to use it for the storage it will work. If you have media on it you want to keep then, the Captivate is the best choice for you. Hope this helps!
