Question [Q] X10a or Captivate?

Hey guys, Since ATT just got the X10 I was wondering which is better. My contract expires in a few days so I have some time to see which I like better. Right now I'm using an iPhone and hating it. I want something with android.

I love SE, I bought an original X1 right out of the gates, so I'm leaning a bit towards the X10 but I'm seeing that it might not have any additional benefit over the Captivate other than the awesome camera.

Help please? I travel a lot and will be going to college soon so I need a phone that will keep up with me, all day.

If you're going to be using your phone outdoors a lot, get the X10. Samsung has the better screen, but it's OLED so when you're outside, it maybe really hard to see. But X10 screen is good as well. If you're concerned about aesthetics, I think X10 is the best looking phone there is, otherwise go for the Samsung.

The x10 is a great phone but if the captivate is anything like the galaxy s then i would go for the captivate.

i am also looking at the two phone and also iphone 4 when my contract is expiring.

Things I like about the sony is the physical call and off button. Also, I think the phone has higher res camera and also 2 camera.

I think captivative overall has a better hardware: 802.11n, larger storage space, better music playback software, bluetooth 3.0. android 2.1

I know sony will upgrade to android 2.1 or maybe 2.2 and samsung is coming out 2.2. So I think the software is not a major issue now.

hard to make a choice between the 3 phones.

Once they reduce that capital letters SAMSUNG logo in front, I'll recommend it. But for now, I'll say go for White X10, cool design...
Smartphones In Use:
White SONY Xperia Z
White Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos
White SONY Ericsson Xperia X10

No its Super AMOLED and its very visible outside in bright sunlight.

To the OP, just determine what you need in a device and use them both in the store. For the record, the Captivates GPS is broken and there is no camera flash. The Captivate has features that the X10 doesn't have. However the X10 will receive some of those features in a future update such as 720P video recording and Android 2.1. The Captivate has these features out of the box. My advice is to do some research online and dont rely purely on our recommendation.
