I have the Captivate. Battery life is not in the same class as the 9700. I've been playing with the settings to see what improves it. I'm going to try not using wifi at all and see what happens, hear that is a big drain.
Battery aside, I like the device, display is great, form factor is great, Android is great. If your looking for an ATT Android device, I would wait for a decent HTC device. The touch UI of HTC is nicer then the Samsung interface. I had the Aria for a few days and preferred that interface. The Aria was simply too small for me.
From what I've read, 2.2 is very close for the Galaxy S series, so hopefully the battery life will improve.
