Which means the processor+RAM+Video processor are on the same chip vs. separated chips in the Samsung. This means Apple saves board space and can therefor make the phone smaller while keeping the same specs.

How can you rate the iPhone's mp3 player less then the Samsung's mp3 player because of iTunes? iTunes is a very good mp3 organizer specially on the mac. All that Samsung has is Kies. The worst software ever written to sync a phone. Yes you can drag and drop music on the Samsung but you still want some software on the PC/Mac to organize and tag you mp3's. The fact here is Samsung has none and iPhone has the decent iTunes. And if you drag and drop you have to remember what is already on the phone or always drag everything.

For me the iPhone should win mp3 by a mile. The best quality output and a music organizer compatible with it. The Samsung has a decent mp3 player but still is miles away from the beautiful high quality iPod build in to the iPhone. I know what I'm talking about. I traded my Galaxy S for an iPhone 4 because I was hugely dissatisfied by the mp3 player in the Galaxy.

Oh and to speak about build quality: the screen of my Galaxy had to be replaced after only one drop. The glass was shattered in pieces! My iPhone hasn't been dropped yet by me luckily but I believe the glass will also break. So for both I think it's better to not drop them.

All in all I think this comparison is way to much orientated to let the Galaxy win. But then you take the conclusion that the iPhone is the best? This is very confusing. For me the reviewer of this story has a Galaxy. Because of that he want's the Samsung to win to justify his choice. The fact is however that both are very good phones and it's better to read the individual reviews on this website. They will give you a better and less colored idea of the goods and less goods about this phones!

Nice review GSMA, but if one looks closer, it seems like a comparison of SGS with iPhone standard, where iP is made to look bad but in the end it scores better... Yes, it's hard for me also to understand.

I won't buy Samsung products anymore in the future. I was so disappointed with my first Samsung - the i900-Omnia. Extremely bad Wifi reception, extremely inefficient as modem, very bad touch response, average organizer, camera, video recording, etc.. oh well, this site had fooled me into trying that very bad product! Marketing at its 'best'!

Hey guys, i'm Using iphone 4 and jailbroken fully modded! Jailbroken iphone 4 is better then Samsung galaxy S! You can do anything you want after jailbroken iphone 4 you can even watch divx movies like samsung galaxy s and you can download torrent music, pictures, movies and much more you can also add a Full Movie on your iphone 4 and u can make a theme which looks same as samsung galaxy s, aswell.. Other phones cant make a cool same theme as iphone 4 .. iphone 4 users should check in youtube! What jailbroken iphone 4 can do! If Steve jobs make an iphone 4 same as jailbroken then it kills lots of phone! I know lots of my friends have jailbroken too and is so useful and cool! You can do anything which other phone cant.. you can even download iboot to boot your iphone 4 to android but is not much safety cause now is in beta version. So iphone, ipod touch, ipad jailbroken owns lots of phone! You can also put shake to unlock, change buttons, like double tap status bar you can add what it can do like mine is double tap status bar then it goto sleep mode no need to press the button.. and you can also take a picture with volume button if bored with the screen button so is so useful and other phone cant change button to your own... Like my iphone can change music pressing up-down and down-up next and pervious music! And then put the silent mode and back to normal mode which i have changed it to pause and start the music! You can also put up-down volume to unlock your iphone! And anything you wanted. So 1 thing Apple stuff is sucks because steve jobs dont join hackers to make a great iphone! So i like iphone 4 more then other phones. 1 thing i need to say is itunes is not good! It lagging and stucking but now i can use my iphone like other phones just put music on your folder then respring thats it!

I have a Samsung Galaxy S and I love it. I'm sure the iPhone 4 is an awesome phone as well. But I need to say one thing about this has to be one of the most biased reviews I have ever read! It's so funny how they purposely ended the review by suggesting how there is "no winner" but it's obvious by their tone throughout that they are in favor of the Galaxy S.

I think this quote from the start of the review should be enough evidence:

"Itís Androidís finest against the iPhone but thatís how we tend to look at it on our side of the pond. The truth is, there are meaner and keener droids out there.

Anyway, thereís enough firepower here even without the US heavyweights"

LMAO!!! "Our side of the pond"?? "US heavyweights"???? Biased much??!!

I think its a shame that the guys who wrote this review sat on the fence so much with their "Wrap Up". One way or the other, one of these phones is a little better than the other even if people use them for different things. Time will tell !
