Samsung I9000 Galaxy S vs. Apple iPhone 4: Collision course - read the full textIt’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...

well i look at this way, the galaxy is such an awesome phone and great bit of tech. they forgot to put a flash on the camera. bit like having a car without a steering wheel. having siad. its just a 3GS clone. in every sense. but at least its a good clone.

you can connect to PC without Samsung KIES !

you need to do this: Settings > Applications > Development and turn on USB debugging.

now you will need the drivers and you will find the drivers here:

If you have tonnes of money, then have both of them.
Else forget the bulshit i phone (with lot of restriction of using i-tunes and the same machine e.t.c................!!!!!!!!!!!) and simply go for SGS (like plug and play for all the machines and most of he applications you probably use are for free, un like the shit i-phone).
For usage of all the applications one can, both the sets have enough, keep on trying them and never master before these phones becomes out dated.

Iphone 4 vs Galaxy s head to head comparison:
1) No flash on iphone!!---galaxy s/s2 wins, i want flash on my phone as i cant work without it.

2)No external Memory on iphone!!----galaxy s/s2 wins

3) Screen is the best on iphone, but super amoled looks like a painted picture.-----Draw here

3) No User file organisation--its good for first world countries like US but for third world like india its bad!!--
RESULT:Draw,as choice to organise files manually depends on preference as both itunes and kies suck bigtime, itunes sucks for india only, but kies is a horror!!---so in USA go for itunes.

4) app support: if u love cracking games and using apps without paying, go for android. If u pay for apps definitely iphone, never seen so many apps at a place, in any other environment!!

5) battery: power users need to replace battery, hence galaxy wins in this department

VERDICT: if u want to play videos, buy a galaxy s
if u want to play games buy an iphone
!!!!!!!!!IF U WANT A VERY GOOD PHONE-wait for an iphone with flash and customizable folders and a removable battery.

I think that iphone 4 is a better phone.I know that SGS is cheaper but come on iphone is iphone.
For me the both phones are great but if i have to chose one phone i definitely chose : iphone 4

Btw. I have an Iphone 4 , but my dad has an SGS and my sister too ( I know the both phones very well )

After I try both phone and review their functions, I found out Iphone is very smooth if compare to SGS, Iphone totally win in reaction, phone design very fashion and gaming+application very high quality. But SGS win on impressive large screen, amazing homescreen (Iphone interface is fast and simple but start bored when I using 10 minutes) and a lots of free software. For me I considered to buy Iphone4 but small screen make it looks suck and the price not worth it. If Iphone5 can use large screen and support flash, I sure buy it.

Normally, both of them is almost same level in all aspects. Cant just use a simple word to say which one is totally better than the other one. Apple fans sure has the bias to say Iphone is the best but it obviously has a lots of common defects. Hope Iphone5 will improve it.

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 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 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.
