Samsung Continuum vs. DROID X, DROID 2, Incredible, Fascinate

We just posted the “Top Things to Know” for the Samsung Continuum over at Android Life, but we also have this sheet which shows how the device compares to the rest of Verizon’s lineup of top Android phones including the entire Droid family.  Wondered how its “Ticker” matches up against the Droid X, D2, or Incredible?  What about the Fascinate?  Here you go.

Update:  We’ve just posted a comparison sheet to the rest of the Galaxy S lineup over at Android Life.

Cheers money!

    Samsung is also world class brand no issue but droid is droid,it have so many functions and droid announce always new functions based on latest technologies….

    I hate my new droid. NO FLASH rly?? I asked VERIZON specifically if it had FLASH and she said YES. no mlb??? omg I’ve been totally misled. I have the new continuum, apps SUCK no flash… hello verizon, welcome to 2011

    The difference between ROM and RAM is here http://www.diffen.com/difference/RAM_vs_ROM , and 8GB ROM on a smartphone is 100% Unnecessary. Also, why make a phone without HDMI out?? IDK… How about, because I don’t store my movies on my phone? I store them on my PC, PS3, and BRDVD discs? The only valid argument here is, why no upgrade to 2.2 with flash on some of these phones… hummingbird proc or not, 1ghz is fine for browsing flash.

    FTR, OMAP vs Hummingbird vs Snapdragon… the difference is ALMOST (note, I said almost, not entirely) irrelevant given the nature of 98% of apps on the market are based around a shitty 512m processor… I can run pretty much every app flawlessly on my overclocked 2.2 Eris.

    Single vs. dual LED…. whoopdy-shit. :P

    Also, the price between these devices is massive. You get the Continuum for a whopping $30, the Incredible for $99, the X is now going for $99 in a lot of places now, but is generally $199, and the new TB is now $250.

    It’s all about price-point, and what you’re willing to sacrifice… being mostly poor, I’m willing to upgrade from my OC’d Eris to a Continuum with a smile on my face… but I would kill for a TB :P

    If you like to be connected all the time, the Samsung Galaxy S Samsung Continuum has a ticker screen. …Well,,whatever ,for me droid rocks….i love droid life…

  • Lhard753

    Whats TBA mean for the Galaxy S Devices considering Adobe Flash mean?

    • Mdub_22

      To Be Announced…..

      These Droids are not the ones your looking for.

    Your chart is incorrect. The Sprint Samsung Epic ships with an internal 16GB Micro SD card.

  • http://www.dannydemicheleblog.com/2009/07/danny-demichele-video/ Danny DeMichele

    The Continuum will probably get the Froyo update after release, but those thinking of buying it will have to make do without Flash 10.1 support for now. It also has a 5 megapixel camera compared to the 8MP one on the Droid X. Hopefully Verizon will give us better reasons why the Continuum is a worthy option compared to their other lineup of smartphones

    The Droid 2 should be a Beast of a phone to rival the EVO but sadly not. The Droid X is a Beast for right now, unitl next year that’s what I am waiting for.

    This might also be interested in our Samsung Galaxy S comparison between Samsung Epic 4G vs Vibrant vs Captivate vs Fascinate..Thanks

    Comparing the GPUs, the Galaxy S's smoke anything out there. They both have 512mb of RAM.Not only does it have Allshare with DLNA sharing, you can also buy a Micro USB-HDMI cable that does the exact same thing.

    Ypu can create a controversy only but actually there is no comparison between Samsung Continuum Vs. DROID X, DROID 2…

    The Hummingbird is the BEST CPU out there right now. It's even better than the 2nd gen Snapdragon, and that's far better than the OMAP.

  • http://www.yourpennypinchingsourceonline.com/2010/08/check-out-trent-jordan-vancouver.html Trent Jordan

    Not only does it have Allshare with DLNA sharing, you can also buy a Micro USB-HDMI cable that does the exact same thing. HDMI is absolutely useless on a phone. I doubt you've even used it.

  • http://www.linkedin.com/in/dannydemichele Danny Demichele

    Droid x is better than the fascinate, the 4.3 inches is noticebly bigger and super amoled is better, but its not true color the color is to vibrant for its own good.

  • http://www.ProfessorProsperity.com Professor Prosperity

    Samsung pulled the original 2.2 update and they've been working on optimizing 2.2 for non-Snapdragon Cortex A8 processors so that the Galaxy S's will see a good performance boost.

    incredible has a 5MP camera.. not 8

  • jeremytheindian

    HAH!

    Secondary Screen Size – 1.8″ N/A N/A N/A N/A.

    I don't know if I am feeling the whole secondary screen thing, but I thought this was funny.

  • Cpdavis120280

    I think it is a little odd that under the droid x for additional storage it says “no”. I have a Droid X and my memory say 16gb card and 8gb on the phone.

  • steve

    Why would anyone buy one of these Samsung phones unless they are incredibly cheaper?
    -No Android 2.2
    -Flash TBD
    -1 Gig humming bird, Why? The Droid X has been out for several months and has a 1Gig OMAP which is faster.
    -Less RAM
    -No HDMI out (why even bother making a new phone without HDMI out?

    • jeremytheindian

      The Droid X was just too hefty for me. Why do I need hdmi out? 2.1 is fine with me for now. The 1ghz hummingbird is smokin…. and I got it for a penny on Amazon.

    • Stephen D

      Wait wait wait…what? The Hummingbird is the BEST CPU out there right now. It's even better than the 2nd gen Snapdragon, and that's far better than the OMAP. And comparing the GPUs, the Galaxy S's smoke anything out there. They both have 512mb of RAM.

  • Stephen D

    The Fascinate trumps them all! The D2, DX, and DInc are certainly great devices though. The Continuum kinda sucks.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      why because of the screen? can you say 2.1, and no flash?

      • Stephen D

        Yes, and the processor and GPU as well. It also has hardware acceleration codecs. You can download a Flash for 2.1(full Flash, not Flash Lite), the 2.2 market, Gingerbread Youtube, and it's still faster than any 2.2 phone(except the G2.)

        EDIT: Also, 2.2 will be here in a matter of days. Samsung pulled the original 2.2 update and they've been working on optimizing 2.2 for non-Snapdragon Cortex A8 processors so that the Galaxy S's will see a good performance boost.

        • One_ina_milli

          Enough of this ! Droid x is better than the fascinate, the 4.3 inches is noticebly bigger and super amoled is better, but its not true color the color is to vibrant for its own good.ill take the droid x
          - bigger screen
          -micro hdmi
          -8gb on board memory
          -2.2 present! Not when 2.2 is played out
          -and the build quality is far superior than the fascinates build, nobody wants to hold cheap plastic

          • Stephen D

            The DX's screen looks like crap next to a SAMOLED. Especially when you compare black levels. You can buy a Micro USB-HDMI Cable that does the same thing. And I couldn't care less about having an HDMI port on my phone. There's also DLNA with the Allshare app. 2gb is plenty of onboard memory. Android apps don't take up a lot of space. 2.2 is coming very soon. November 11th is the rumored date. I'll give you the build quality, but the Galaxy S did pretty well in the drop test. Buy a case if you don't like the build quality.

  • Towelie420

    My droid x shames 'em all!

  • 1bad69z28

    Guys, All I see are the same specs and tired phones, except for the Droid X the Droid 2 is being remade as part of some agenda to capture other markets. The Droid 2 should be a BEAST of a phone to rival the EVO but sadly not. The Droid X is a Beast for right now, unitl next year that's what I am waiting for.

  • jeesung

    now we need a tutorial on Hummingbird vs. OMAP vs. Snapdragon. is 1GHz on one better than 1GHz on another??

    • Stephen D

      Hummingbird>2nd gen Snapdragon>1st gen Snapdragon>OMAP.

  • One_ina_milli

    droid x is best phone for verizon.

  • Mrkylelovett

    and the winner is………….. THE FASCINATE !!!

    • Goatfish

      No. Droid X! FASCINATE has 2.1, No flash,smaller screen,and less ROM an RAM. Any Casual person who looks at this chart will say notice that the Droid X has the best everything. Unless they really beleive verizon homepage and Vcast are a must!

      • Stephen D

        The Fascinate is getting 2.2 this month, with more optimizations for non-Snapdragon Cortex A8 processors, so it'll be better than any out there. And it's already faster than any 2.2 phone, with the G2 being the exception. I'll take a .3 inch smaller SAMOLED screen over a bigger but washed out LCD screen. And, they both have 512mb of RAM.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000158705891 Gavin Spencer Marty

          droid x doesnt have a snapdragon cpu

          • Stephen D

            I know, it has an OMAP 3630. I meant HTC phones. They get a bigger performance boost due to the Snapdragon's having things like NEON float point instructions or whatever, and Google built 2.2 to run better on that. It's one of the reasons they get such high Linpack scores. Samsung wanted to work on optimizing 2.2 for the Hummingbird, and 2.2 for the Galaxy S's will have optimizations that phone like the D2 and DX don't.

      • jeremytheindian

        Sorry boss, but the blacks on a Droid X LCD look grey next my Fascinate S-AMOLED.

        • Revrant

          And colors on an AMOLED look like Super Mario Brothers compared to a crisp neutral LCD.

  • bobo

    Verizon, nobody wants your V Cast with Rhapsody and no one wants their browser to default to your homepage.

    These are Android phones, not Motorola RAZRs…

    • Ivan

      I cant express how much I agree with you. I cant tell you how badly I want to throw my phone in the toilet when I see VZ Navi or City ID on my DX. Hell, every time I mount my phone to my pc, VZW website pops up, filling me with rage. VCast, VZ Navi, and Blockbuster can die in a fire…

      • Sprotthedestroyer

        Exactly

      • Mdn5024

        if you root your phone, you can get rid of the apps, and to get rid of the vzw popup, just connect your phone, right click on the icon in the notification tray, and select dont do anything when its connected

    • HTCdev760

      good thing none of that shit id default on there phones right? lol and evcen if it was default with any verizon phone its super easy to change delete/ remove.

  • "grandmaster flask"

    Droid x has 8 gb built in…might wanna correct that tidbit at the very end

    • kellex

      Tell Verizon. :P

    • http://al-bickers.myopenid.com/ Alan B

      Isn’t the 8GB on DX classified as ROM instead of additional memory?

      And, I can’t imagine what the difference between ROM and “additional memory” would be, maybe someone will enlighten me.

  • Cgmartin33

    Am I taking crazy pills or does it claim the Droid X doesn't have 8gb on board storage?

    • kellex

      It's definitely a VZW type-o.

  • Michael_NM

    Ticker update: Droid X will continue… uhm… to WIN! :-)

    • bobo

      Yeah, as soon as I find a nice man-purse to carry it around in.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

    the droid x and 2 are still the best on there. i mean come on, 3.4? thats smaller than the iphone 4 screen. and why wont samsung release there phones with froyo? thats a big fail.

    • Mr.Joe

      I think the addition of the 1.8″ screen is supposed to make up for it. Even though I'd rather have it be combined with the 3.4″ screen.

  • qmartman711

    Browser default page? Why the heck would that be of comparison..If anything it should be a comparison of default search engine- bing or google. I would love to meet with the marketing team that comes out with these charts, the last chart, they claimed the Incredible came with swype…

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      yea i know. they had me thinking they released that latest Dinc with swpye and they didnt.

  • EC8CH

    But will it have VZ navigator preinstalled???

    • Muddy B00ts

      Oh man, I hope so, that was my favorite app on my Storm! /sarcasm

  • Darkseider

    I think the funniest part is the “Exchange Active Sync” line where they all say yes. So far anything I have tried running Froyo whether it be HTC or Motorola does NOT work with Exchange 2007/2010 and Active Sync. The only solution I have found is the tried and true Touchdown. Now if anyone knows anything different and cares to tell me how to get the built in email client to work it would be GREATLY appreciated.

    • jutley

      I am syncing my Droid X (and Droid before that) with my Exchange server. I have two employees also with DXs syncing with Exchange. We are all using the native app.

      • Anonymous

        iirc, it can handle the basics, but it really depends on the Active Sync settings the server is set for.

  • durangojim

    I see the screen res on the Continuum is the same as those with other larger screens. This might satisfy people who are concerned about pixel density.
