1. FM Radio is for listning to MUSIC
2. support for multiple formats caters to MUSIC
3. no dependence on iTunes also speaks of convenience while transferring MUSIC
4. Its about usability and practicality of your music player
oh and btw.. there is same audio quality when using an external amplifier(only SLIGHTLY deteriorated when using earphones)
To the one sided people, most especially apple die hard fans, ur so funny.. If you are so sure that iphone is by far the best, then why are you even here?! I mean why even bother visiting this site?! I can clearly sense threatened fanatics. Really, if ur so sure then i guess u shouldn't even care what the reviews are... It depends on the preferences of people... the comparisons are for those who are neutral and would really wanna see the difference of the products.. it's not even plastic vs whatever iphone uses. it's the whole package being compared.. being similar touch screen smartphones.
This comparison is really one sided. When talking about audio player, we are talking about music! And why the hell does Samsung Galaxy gets a higher score than iphone 4? Is the audio quality of Galaxy better than iPhone 4? NO! Then how on earth could it get higher scores? Haih....

Get your fact right... LOL
Jake, 06 Sep 2010The difference in smoothness is amazing. The Galaxy S is nowhere near as smooth as the iPhone ... morei agree that in term of smoothness of the OS.. ISO4 has an advantages over android phone compare to iphone4 but not iphone 3G or 3GS.
talking about flash light for camera.. yes samsung galaxy S does not have a flash light.. but as you mention... its "android Fan" who complaint.. and android has lots of dffierent phone which carrys a fash light much better than its iphone....
Well one more thing to add.... Android phones are file sharing friendly... i don't like the feeling of my friends sharing video clips thru bluetooth in front of me while i am sulking on my thumb thinking why my bluetooth can't work with theirs... thats why i changed my 3GS to Samsung Galaxy S
naved, 06 Sep 2010if u see closely to other company's products every company is trying to copy apple....galaxy S... moreLook it's not copying. Let me explain this by an example, Nokia made the first phone with internet capabilities Nokia 7110. Now after that several companies released phones with internet...that doesn't mean copying that just means market is evolving. Motorola, Nokia, Ericsson have contributed in this process and now Apple is contributing to this.
For those who claim Galaxy is Plastic, I differ, it is only the battery back is, rest of it do not feel like plastic. A removable battery is anytime superior to builtin.
I have not seen iPhone 4 though I am using iOS 4 in my 3GS, I can say they both are equally good and bad in certain areas. Since Apple controls both hardware and software, the experience is expected to be better (and only mobile phone they have) whereas Samsung has many varieties catering to various market segments which is adapting an open source OS will definitely have its own advantage as well as disadvantages.
Jake, 06 Sep 2010The difference in smoothness is amazing. The Galaxy S is nowhere near as smooth as the iPhone ... moreso choosing restricted smoothness which seriously undermines how u use the phone, is better than plain smooth powerful functionality :) ?
for how long did u actually use a galaxy s?
galaxy s is as smooth as the iphone my frn :)
i operate them both pretty often.. my frns have both the phones
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2010Don't know y ppl compare iPhone 4 with others copy cats!!because maybe to a lot of people, the iphone is such a disappointment in so many ways i guess?!
NAVED, 06 Sep 2010CHILL DUDE!!ok most of the iphone parts r made by samsung? nd this is not called COPYING right... moreHistory lesson.
2006 Apple copies the prada and F980 for the iphone 3g
20010 Samsung copies the iphone 3gs for the galaxy S
fair fights imo
The difference in smoothness is amazing. The Galaxy S is nowhere near as smooth as the iPhone 4. Android is a great OS and has a lot of potential...but at the moment, the iOS is so much better to use. Yes it is not very customizable but that problem is solved by easily jailbreaking the device.
And the iPhone 4 is much better as far as hardware goes. So it beats the Galaxy S in both hardware and software. And the music player and the camera as well. (Funny how some Android fans criticize the iPhone 4 by saying there is no xenon flash or even a double LED flash...the
Galaxy S doesn't even have a single flash!)
I would use the iPhone 4 over the Galaxy S any day.
i dono wat u ppl are arduing about. this comparison shows tat the galaxy s killed the iphone 4. n thr was one thing wich wasnt compared n tat is the gaming capabilities of the phones.
the iphone 4 uses the power vr SGX535 14 MPolys/s, 1Gpx/s@200MHz
the i9000 galaxy uses SGX540 28 MPolys/s, 1Gpx/s@200MHz
this again shows that the samsung outclasses the iphone 4 in terms of graphics. both have the same processor and another plus point is the display on the samsung has rich vibrant colours. irrespective of what u apple fanboys say u cant deny the fact tat the apple iphone 4 is nuthin compared to the samsung galaxy i9000
NAVED, 06 Sep 2010CHILL DUDE!!ok most of the iphone parts r made by samsung? nd this is not called COPYING right... moreso the question is will you just dismiss galaxy s because it APPEARS like iphone4 and the menus LOOK the same? :) in spite of having done away with the iHassels of the iPhone?
NAVED, 06 Sep 2010CHILL DUDE!!ok most of the iphone parts r made by samsung? nd this is not called COPYING right... morefor a fact... iphone4's screen is BRIGHTER than GALAXY S's... so it is not the other way round.. there is a big power hungry illumination source behind the screen which makes it brighter which is not the case with amoled technology which requires no illumination from behind and the pixels themselves emit light
the result is blacks are blacker and colours are sharper
super AMOLED is a better technology..
better colour reproduction and saturation compared to iphone4's screen..(blacks are blacker.. you have to have a look at samsung wave or galaxy s for this, just open the peacock feathers picture on the devices)
and the above comes with lesser power consumption too :)
declaring that iphone4s display is better because of just the resolution is a bit naive. because at usual viewing distances (about 1 feet to 1.5 feet) the pixalation is not noticable (at least the older iphone having a res of 480x320 it was not) SGS has a resolution of 800 x 480 which is adequate.. plus the screen is Larger too :)
and if you are going to watch a movie(which usually are 16:9 aspect ratio) on ur iphone or galaxy s then SGS has a aspect ration of 15:9 which means that there are very 'THIN' black lines on the top and bottom of the playing movie.. which would be too thick on the iphone4(kind of 13.5 : 9 aspect ratio, do the math) (less viewing space on already smaller screen!! the high pixel density is not being put to good use here dude :).. waste of screen space )
now i leave it to your wise intellect.. to decide if that crappy buzzword RETINA is really worth it :)
i know that it is so fine that human eyes wont be able to distinguish pixels from distances greater than 1 feet but galaxy S pixel density is pretty high too. and in overall usability i think it actually beats retina which is based on the older lcd-tft technology :)
P.S- dismissing off a phone which shows the Day light to iphone.. and is a serious rival.. as a piece of plastic is non sense..
iReality :D, 06 Sep 2010none of the parts inside the iphone are from apple? and apple borrows heavily from firms like ... moreCHILL DUDE!!ok most of the iphone parts r made by samsung? nd this is not called COPYING right?? at least iphone is not copying the designs like samsung!! nd u better know that galaxy S quite looks like iphone but with bigger screen nd 3 BUTTONS at the bottom.......everybody is talking abt the galaxy S screen...yeah big deal....iphone's retina display is like super AMOLED BUT with much better sharpness nd CLARITY...galaxy S only have screen with higher brightness nd contrast...DATS IT
naved, 06 Sep 2010if u see closely to other company's products every company is trying to copy apple....galaxy S... morenone of the parts inside the iphone are from apple? and apple borrows heavily from firms like samsung for whats running under the hood.. so does this make them unoriginal copy cats? :)
agreed that samsung copied the UI from apple.. but ever wondered that why apple is not suing them(apple has tried to sue google and HTC mind you)? its because u wont want to upset ur favorite supplier :) samsung have just removed the iHassels :P from the iPhone :) and we have a winner in Galaxy S :)
one which just lets you use your phone the way you want it, and not the way jobs wants you to :)
so trusting an idiot, overlooking your benefit and over paying for a 1ghz processor and 512mb ram just to run ONE app at a time(and believeing it to be multitasking because a moron says so) doesnt seem very prudent, does it?
if i would buy a phone for my 60 year old uncle who just knows how to operate some computer and needs a phone which just makes stuff simple(though not efficeient) then i would buy the iPhone
and to someone who actually has more than half a brain and is more tech savy, iPhone would be the dumbest choice! so stop uttering bull shit that galaxy S is a cheap piece of plastic
when it is lighter, has a better display, does ACTUAL multitasking, plays videos on the fly without bothering with the iFormats :D( and did i hear about being able to make PHONECALLS WITHOUT RUBBER BUMPERS too somewhere) :D
Samsung, company that sells fridges and air conditioners. you won't see me with a phone of that brand guys.
iSasa, 04 Sep 2010Yes, a lot of you against the iPhone, but none say why samsung so strongly resembles the desig... moreif u see closely to other company's products every company is trying to copy apple....galaxy S is nothing but like iphone look alike...it completely looks like iphone..like the metal rim around it,the design....etc etc but made with plastic nd seriously it does look cheap.....samsung have gone for quality materials since they r asking this price for this plactic....nd then the ipad...when it was previewed...people were saying its useless,another apple crap blah blah blah..nd now when samsung,toshiba nd even viewsonic r making ipad look-alikes..then those r good to dem then ipad....i mean wtf
