Samsung I9000 Galaxy S vs. Apple iPhone 4: Collision course

06 August 2010
It’s not like you’re out of options. Here’s one. Another one would be to get a friend’s iPhone 4 and another friend’s Galaxy S, put them on a table, close your eyes and… tell your friends to bugger off. Or you can do it the old-fashioned way. Flip a what...

Reasons why the Galaxy S wins and why Android wins overall:

- Better UI: Yes apple, the iOS is simply all your apps scrambled together.

- Flash Support: Play things right out of the web instead of having to download an app for it.

- Decent calling. What a phone should do in the first place.

- Real Multitasking: The ability to run apps in the background and not have a simple historic for it.

- Open Source: You can hack your Android and they could care less. While jailbreaking iPhones ruins your guarentee with Apple.

Honestly i tried both of this phone because i own a samsung galaxy s (and a galaxy gio), my sister an iphone 4.
Apple made an awesome phone really. Perfect design, solid build, perfect warranty marketing, perfect applications on the market...Anyway most of people buying an iphone just because it's a fashion product almost the 60%. (we know that come on).
I don't complain at all, but apple in my personal opinion would to sell to their customers a phone without any defect, The perfect smartphone, but this is really impossible at the moment. Always in any product like this nobody is perfect. Remeber that!
Like cars,videogames,cameras,videocameras, laptops everyone have pro and cons.
The famous Antennagate really exist (you need a bumper), the proximity sensor same (you have to upgrade IOS but not solve at all the issue)Sometimes the screen during call dosn't lock.
My sister paid 650 €uros a lot lot of money...and you have to be careful with this iphone..is not very hard to broke the glass... Apple have to sell a bit cheaper in my opinion the iphone because is not perfection.

And now have a look at samsung..Who was samsung 5/6 years ago??(nobody) they made tv's, vacuum cleaner, veary cheap phones...and have a look now, what they do in all this years, its just incredible.
Please don't say samsung copy apple or or the opposite, because apple copy the technology too but with style...
SGS is not the perfect device, is not the ultimate fashion product, but it work without any major issue...(for example battery drain fast..ok..but you know? you can replace the 1500mAh to a original 1650 mAh samsung battery. apple you can't do this).
And what about the price? I mean new, and second hand...is less than half price than an iphone... you have the same features.
Ok apple have a resonably good warranty...but warranty is not all , if you broke a samsung you don't wanna kill yourself because you can find some good bargain online new and not new...
what about if you broke iphone (650€)?...if you buy a second hand one, you have to spend at least the same money as a new...that's why i belive in samsung.
Anyway i like iphone 4 it's a surprising product, but the price for what it offers is not justifiable.
At this point I would prefer buy two sgs with the same money as an iphone4.
cheers

sgs s are always a leap ahead in technology implementation...
apple in inovative technology.

I think for me. The most telling story is that we hardly hear about the sgs any more.
It's all about the sgsII. Yet we still hear about the ip4. So yet another iPhone killer
has fallen by the wayside, forgotten by its army of rabid fans. They're going dirt cheap
on eBay as the ill educated masses try desperately to build up funds for the next pile
of plastic crap that they'll be convinced wipes the floor with the iPhone.



And no, this one won't be outdated in two months. Honest.

Hmm I wonder if the fool who stated that samsung wouldn't release a replacement
any time soon is still on here.

the two of these are wonderful phones with wonderful features.The sgs wins on not having to pay for music and games and basic phone calls and messaging while the i phone wins on screen brilliant games on app store screen and user expierience.I own the two of these phones but i would just give the i phone the edge

samsung galaxy s i9003 is a great gadget.
user friendly, cheap,amazing apps.(android 2.2 froyo),4 inch display,
it comes with sesor which helps while ur in a call,in built 4gb....
therefore, with due respect to apple i phone 4..i prefer samsung galaxy s as its easily avilable, cheap(in compare to apple iphone 4)
so, my pick would b samsung galaxy s i9003

I think that samsung I good option bcoz its cheaper and samsung is having gr8 company support for warranty. Its best anriod with super amoled display with card slot. Without breaking SIM CARD we can insert it into galaxy phones. Its easy to upload and backup also we can backup our contacts in memorycards also.bluetooth can be paired with any type of phones.and many more stuff so samsung is better.

actually I think that Samsung Galaxy S has more advantages than the Iphone 4 company, because:
1- its relatively cheaper (that makes a large change in sale)
2- it has a better screen being Super amoled and all.
3- not so complicated when youre trying to make a call
but the Iphone 4 has the advantage in materials and apps
and the samsung galaxy S is not fragile, I have one and dropped it over 6 times and each one was on either the road or tiles (not on the rug)
so I give my full support to this review, because I find it quite accurate.

htc desire is the best (after the 2.2 froyo update, and 2.3 gingerbread is just around the corner)

So dear readers Imo Gsm arena ppl should not make this big+ for samsung,ok samsung has great phones epic ones but I had from Sony-Ericsson to iPhone many phones in hands and the problem is:If u want a good camera-phone get Satio no phone on earth can beat that phone ,btw gsmarena guys get a grip on your nokia favorite+,trust me in real life situations no way N8 can outdo a Satio,keep in mind SE has and prob will always be the company with the best camera phones(except sharp,but then again sharp not on EU market),If you want free applications and more custom shit get an android(Galaxy S) if you want a slick phone with good durability balanced and with more atractive games get the iPhone so depending on your needs chose you phone
