Well, I have a Samsung Galaxy S (8GB, but it's also possible to have it with 16GB, however once Froyo comes up, I will use the external memory more).
What I like:
1. Screen unlock pattern (on a matrix of 3x3 points you can select whatever pattern you want for unlocking the screen, so strangers may have a hard time looking in your phone).
2 Speeeeed.
3 swipe.
4 Great display.
5 Great camera.
5 The "Layers" application (let's you see in space POI's around you).
7 You can play DivX movies "out of the box" (I like this when I travel).
8 Good battery life (due also to economical proc and display).
From android market:
9 Find my phone app.
Minus points:
No web flash in standard browser (but to be solved with Froyo; also there is a android marked browser who has it).

> In reply to John @ 2010-06-30 05:56 from vG4e - click to readI believe this phone is better for the following reasons:

- It weighs less, it's also thinner and bigger.
- The screen on this is magnificent and more larger than the HTC disire.
- This may not have flash, but it has HD video that the desire doesn't have. I think other versions of the Samsung Galaxy S might have flash, so if that matters to you, get the version that has a flash.
- The screen and menus look better, they also have a new text imput that's called 'swype', which can make you type much more quicker
- There are more specifications and installed applications such as: (This phone)
ayar. - Social networking integration
- Digital compass
- MP4/DivX/WMV/H.264/H.263 player
- MP3/WAV/eAAC+/AC3/FLAC player
- Organizer
- Image/video editor
- Document editor (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF)
- Google Search, Maps, Gmail,
YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, Picasa integration
- Flash Lite v3.1
- Voice memo/dial/commands
- T9
- Layar (unless that's for all androids)

(Desire):
- Digital compass
- Dedicated search key
- Google Search, Maps, Gmail
- YouTube, Google Talk, Picasa integration
- MP3/AAC+/WAV/WMA9 player
- MP4/H.263/H.264/WMV9 player
- Facebook, Flickr, Twitter applications
- Voice memo

I'd also say this phone and the other version of this phone flog the desire for design too.

Is this phone good or is HTC Desire good.

I have never used a Samsung ph in my life, but nw since I am planning to get an Android ph, I would like to decide between this and Desire.

SE X10, no way, lotz of flaws in it, so no SE.

Cheers!!

AT&T version is not going to have led flash. Supposely when the rumors were spilling before they were confirmed. The T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint version of the Galaxy S is suppose to have led flash. Now the Verizon and Sprint version will be the one having led flash. So AT&T and TMobile won't have flash in their version of the Galaxy S. Which I think its gay, don't mind that there's no FFC but led flash...come on...even the low budget phones have led flash. Give Tmobile galaxy S their led flash!!! haha

The richest man in the world CARLOS SLIM runs telecom in Centrsl America.
The archaic AT&T model of demanding to run a credit report before you can have an iPhone on their network shows how stupid they are.
They have driven me to the Android platform.
Principal always prevails.
