Nice Comparison guys.

I own both Galaxy s and Iphone , i had to switch from iphone due to signal issue and other stuff like :

1- Android is a free world you just can do what you whant
2- Galaxy s offers more than apple in term of user experience

don't get me wrong iphone 4 is a good device , but the issue is with apple its not improving the most important thing in a mobile which is telephony and messaging , compared with their other features.

bottom end

Galaxy s is v.good
iphone 4 is good

I like SGS but the occassional lag particularly if you use it in rushy way, I don't like that, it seems like the operation system is not mature developed before they launched this phone. Second is the model and material used for this phone, it looks way too cheap, the plastic battery cover even thinner than a cracker.
Third the battery life. Besides that it is quite good.

there isnít a perfect smartphone out there. Thereís always something for anyone to love or hate. What makes the iPhone so special is that it takes love and hate with the loftiness of a royalty.still the number 1 in the market

I is always Capital. Ask Mark zugerberg why he is not using Android phones? He loves his iPhone. iPhone user segment is always premium.

More applications than you can imagine wins over android market any day of the week. While Samsung did a good job with Galaxy S in many ways it has a long way until it beats Apple's App store. To those that say "android market has free apps" app store has plenty of free apps as well there are also thousands of $0.99 apps which is as good as free in my book. iPhone 4 is best until apple releases a better one.

I-Phone = Locked to I-Tunes for updates and sync, buy applications and using apples propriety interface.
Samsung = Open OS and free upgrades. Applications are free and interface can be customized.

Decision = Easy.... SAMSUNG Galaxy S...

Sorry Apple, you might have had the idea first, but locking your system to just your hardware has lost you a reasonable market share...

Think about it, Apple is alone. Android has big companies like htc, motorola and samsung trying to develop the best smartphone and all they can do is come 2nd best or copy apples' ideas and still not be as good.

The antenna "problem" is probably solved in the new verizon iphone 4. So how are anti iphone people gonna make fun of the iphone now?

I think the people who work at gsm arena are anti apple. I agree there is alot of basic stuff that apple can improve, but there is no way in which any other phone has a better touch screen. Iphone also gives the best photo browsing experience. The music player is based on the ipod!

I can go on like this forever and keep on giving reasons why the iphone is better than any other smartphone around...

i dont care about this crazy test. iphone is the best mobile phone in the planet.. and it will be
i want to have apple phone in my hand, and i hate to have somegthing in my hand that is like the previous version of iphone.
it is one year that samsung starts sucking apple phones, apple ipads and apple ios.. it is just copying and the thing that is imprtant is : WHO MAKE IT FOR THE FIRST TIME? and the answer is steve jobs and his company.

> In reply to Sanjeet Singh @ 2011-01-22 20:36 from uw@u - click to readhmmm... i don't think iphone4 is superb against samsung s. in hong kong, i bought my samsung s at 4988 hk dollars. iphone4 has the same price. but just because the iphone4 phones had higher sales than the samsung galaxy s, they try to jump up the price to 6,900 hk dollars. i tried to compare both of them and it showed very clearly that the samsung galaxy s had much more of the advantage in terms of display, user friendly, weight, upgradable "external memory", processing speed, etc.. people buying iphone 4s doesn't seem to know what the potentials of what a samsung s is all about. they just purchase iphone 4 because its the "in thing" .. oh well.. too bad. my suggestion : try to browse through youtube.com and search for samsung galaxy s vs iphone 4. thats where you will see all the difference. btw, samsung galaxy s is in android 2.2 version now. more faster than the 2.1!
