Ticker display

The unique aspect of the Continuum is its secondary ticker display at the bottom of the phone. Measuring 1.8 inches, the window shows you basic information, such as time, date, and weather, and also acts a notification system and real-time newsfeed. You can activate just the ticker display by touching the sides of the phone at the bottom.

Design

The Samsung Continuum is smaller than the rest of the Galaxy S models. It measures 4.9 inches tall by 2.3 inches wide by 0.5 inch thick and weighs 4.4 ounces, making it more comfortable to hold and slip into a pants pocket.

The Continuum's primary screen measures 3.4 inches and is Super AMOLED.

Picture quality

Picture quality was quite good. We were happy with the sharpness of photos and color reproduction. However, the flash can be a bit powerful at times.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
