I have both a 3G iPhone and a Samsung Vibrant; the Vibrant is, hands down, the better phone.
The screen resolution is far better than the iPhone. It is lighter, and has a 'swipe' keyboard.
The Vibrant can also be used with Wind Mobile; the iPhone cannot.
While both phones are lovely pieces of technology, I think the Samsung definitely has the edge on the 3G iPhone

The i9000 galaxy s has better battery, but vibrant has 16gb + 2gb out of the box, more capacitive buttons, and some t-mobile crap preloaded. It also comes with the sims 3 game preloaded if it interests you
hi!just bought this phone unlocked, everything is fine however gprs/edge doesn't work. i have data on my older phone and im using the same sim. i have already configured the apn settings, still nothing. Is it because of the phone because it's from t-mobile? help! thank you!

Fahad, 07 Oct 2010Hi every one I m fahad I m having a problem with the phone I m using vibrant from bell canada ... moreYes I know what you mean, and its actually not a problem. The thing is that andoid 2.1 only allows a maximum of 300-something of ram, but once your phone is running android 2.2, you will have all 500mb ram at your disposal. For being an american, your english is kinda lame
I thought the Vibrant worked on the 4G network, 14.4mbps? Can anyone clear this up?
anonymous, 15 Oct 2010Can anyone tell me where I fan get this "GPS Fix"? Phone is great but I can't get... moretype in vibrant xda in your google search box. I have different Rom and I get GPS lock in about 5 secs. Oh did I also tell you about battery reconditioning? All day use and still got about 60% at 5 pm. That's the beauty of android phone.

A secret: I just rooted the Vibrant last weekend and installed one click lag free and VOILA, GPS lock is within seconds via 3G, compass works like a champ, fast and dead accurate (compared to a watch compass) with a very nice app compass in 3D (can view even the phone is vertical or flat horizontal ;)
I am SOOOOO HAPPY with the 2.1 Eclair now even don't want to think of the upcoming Froyo). Battery life is GREAT now! WHOOHOO..
3vilhomer, 10 Oct 2010i tested with a x10. both using tmobile 3G and both phone just restarted. so the GPS is starti... morecompared to old Nokia 5800. Galaxy S can't get a GPS fix in downtown Amsterdam (GPS only, no A-GPS), yet Nokia has no problems.
Too bad that this Samsung has nearly useless GPS.
