Looser Paul, 09 Aug 2010you dont know how to use a phone...never buy any other phone ever in lifeI would like to think that I do know how to use a phone, I've had a HTC Desire, Hero, Palm Pre, countless Blackberries and more Nokias than I can count. Oh and I've had three iPhones. I think that I qualify as knowing how to use phones, as for you I couldn't possibly comment.

How about realizing this: The iPhone4 is a good phone and so is the Galaxy S. They both have apps that people like and want. That is, if you could wrap your brain around such a concept?

Just accept the idea that some people want a phone with games and a few other useful features, and others want a laptop replacement with a billion poorly implimented features, since they never leave their mothers basement anyway.
Android is for the latter group.

Every new games will come out on the SGS android as well as Iphone why ?
Because the Iphone powervr graphic processor (powervr 545) is capable of 30 million triangles per second.
The SGS one (powervr 540) is capable of 90 million triangles per second.
For your information a PSP is 30 million triangles per second.
Samsung sold the crappy powervr to apple, and jobs was glad he ordered them, so that he could sell crappier GPU chip (rebranded powervr 545) to his worshippers at a phenomenal overpricing.
No this is not an error Apple bought powervr 535 and rebranded them "apple powervr 545" to make them look more powerful than the samsung new powervr 540.
Shame on apple for selling what is as powerful as a powervr 535-37 as a powervr 545.
That said the powervr 540 is what allows the Galaxy S to run ANY game THRICE faster than the iphone 4. Hell the SGS can even run playstation games under emulation PSX4droid app. rofl...
This guy plays Final fantasy with a remote controler through wiwi on his galaxy S wired to his HDTV
Try doing that or any other crazy technological stuff on an Iphone...
iphone 4 is for kids and stupid grownups only.. i can prove it.. any college graduate who bought an iphone4 should be ashamed.
who wants to have a debate with me? ill surely own anyone who tries to just like how SGS owns IPhone4.

These days, no manufacturer tends to go for the quality, but for the number, that leads to big sales at first and then when users see the problems of the different terminals they don`t buy them anymore. If there where no problems with the handsets the selling would still continue to increase. IMO. I would choose the SGS everyday, over the iPhone 4. The only thing I like about iPhone 4 is that they have more support from game makers, for example Street Figher 4, although the SGS would run the game without problems, the game makers will not make a version for SGS, wich is stupid. But overall, SGS is the one for me.
samsung is not very reliable
i have star and touch mechanism is out of order with no reason
it happened to most of people
you cant copmpare any touch phones like apple .

A much more reasonable comparison of the video player would have been to compare the time it took to load the test video into the Galaxy (no conversion needed) to the time it took to get the same into the iPhone (convert into a compatible format, load into iTunes). Case closed.

How about 5 years and it is still working? Still saying Samsung mobile are prone to be defective within a year?
Please, if you have not owned a Samsung mobile don't make assumptions. If you do, maybe you didn't take care of your phone that well.

It seems to me Galaxy has better hardware and it actually works as a phone. What is there left to compare? (i dont use android myself. Maybe in a year or 2).
Wow are people talking about resale value? Are you guys serious? How can resale value be a positive thing? How many phones do Apple make? Currently, only three. Now compare that to Samsung Mobile. How many phone models do Samsung sell? A lot!
Why is Samsung Galaxy S resale value is lower than Apple? Because Samsung keeps on releasing new phones every now and then with improved and better specifications. Therefore, the market price of the already released phone falls in Samsung brand as it trumps down their specs.
Apple iPhone on the other hand? They make a new phone every two years or so. So they can control the market price to whatever they want because no new phones will be coming out sooner. That is why resale value is still high. Furthermore, iOS can only be found in Apple products. If Apple opens up the iOS to other phone brands, I'm pretty sure the price of iPhone will be adjusted to the other competition that uses iOS. But guess what? Only Apple iPhone and iPad is using iOS.
Iphone's music player lost out to galaxy simply because of itunes. Meh, that should come under connectivitiy. On the other hand i have windows media player on my pc as standard and find it utterly ridiculous to installed itunes in order to transfer music. To me, it's utter junk thats not needed. Drag and drop in usb mass storage mode would eradicate this problem. Apple just finds ways to lock people in. Itunes has decent features but not everyone needs it.
