They liked both AT&T handsets, but preferred the capacitive button layout of the Samsung Focus, liked the metal back of the Captivate, and interestingly confirmed the Internet Explorer worked more smoothly on the Focus than the Android browser, the same result as found here. They found performance otherwise the same on both handsets, and concluded:
If Samsung keeps on producing fantastic devices like the Samsung Captivate and Focus, there is no stopping them from creeping up to the top spot in the global scene. Even though they sport opposing platforms, the results in various categories are in fact relatively similar â€“ and that’s why they’re both wonderful solutions in the smartphone realm. However, consumers that are shopping around right now are going to need to weigh the benefits offered by both platforms since they have their own unique perks. Windows Phone 7 is the newer of the two and employs a straightforward experience that’s supplemented by its consistent responsiveness. On the other hand, Android 2.1 on the Captivate still manages to impress with its personalized look, equally responsive feel, and depth of features akin to any mature platform. All in all, you really can’t go wrong with either of them!
