Not much to compare it to.
I like the phone well enough - I think it's probably better for me than other newer phones but my last phone was a Nokia 2330. Compared to that phone the Captivate glide has about half the battery life and is twice as large. Compared to a Samsung Edge or iPhone it seems have a longer battery life but I hardly use the thing either. I do like the mechanical qwerty keyboard.

Great Sleek Phone!!
The phone is a great value with no major problems so far, with the exception of the poor battery life. It seems that it will only last me a day, unless I use it a more frequently. In that case it's about 12 hours if I'm lucky. However, that may be just because I bought it used (refurbished) so I might need to actually purchase a new battery, but I'm not positive about that. A very nice android OS & internal memory/RAM, and the QWERTY slide out keyboard is really great if you prefer type-texting. The keyboard is a little flatter than I was hoping but it just takes some getting used to. The back cover is a bit flimsy, so best to get a phone cover for added protection! [I don't know what small form factor means, so I put no.]

Has a physical keyboard
My wife likes this phone because it still has a physical keyboard that slides in and out. When her phone broke she wanted the same phone again. This is a "smart" phone, but it has limitations.

Good though not as up-to-date as new phones.
I like this phone a lot. Being 2015, the programming is a little old so not all apps work with it and it can't read new emos, but overall, it's great. The camera works well, though the front-facing camera isn't as good as the one on the back. I like the glide, though the letters are spaced out more, so I don't use the function at all as much as I did on my old phone.

Excellent Smart Phone w/ Physical Keyborad
Bought this phone to replace a lost phone. Was amazed at the excellent condition. Have been using this model for over a year now. It's a great phone especially for those who like a physical slider keyboard. It will upgrade to the latest version of Android. Works well, nice design, sharp display, good but not great camera.
