All told the Iphone 4 is better than the Galaxy S, because it's one of the few high-end gadgets that are actually good for day to day use.
The Galaxy S is too big for a pocket, and dosen't have a flash. Foto options are not an option during a party, but a flash on auto is. And the best way not lose your phone is to.. put it in your pocket. The Iphone 4 is built for the average consumer, not just for a geek who enjoys having 1000 options to play with. The Galaxy S is great, but too great for the average joe.
k the iphone will not have a higher resale value than comparatively to the old iphone say a few years after its release, reason being the conceopt isnt new anymore, there are plenty of more capable handsets out now than ever, increased competition, increased choice, plus the design blunders(antenae problem) and lack of upgradablity of the iphone 4g will lead to its demise early no doubt next year when 4g is roled out globally iphone will be a relic

I M brand neutral...i hv nokia5800 now, but i cannot comment on other features..BUT...samsung galaxysi9000 has got the best screen in mobile phones....way ahead of iphone4....miles ahead. Anyone will wish to throw his iphone 4, nokia5800,htc...etc etc after seeing the superbly stunning display of sansung galaxy s i9000, u must see its screen before deciding for any other phone.i hv lost my sleep after seeing it...just saving money for it !!!
the reason why we must buy iphon e4 because of the logo. it does not matter if you can not make a call. thats the most important thing and thats the reason why iphone 4 is the best phone in the world athe the moment you guys are funny.
U just got unlucky, 26 Aug 2010My company got 200 Iphone 4 as a company upgrade, i did all the transaction and its been a mon... moreWho on earth so unlucky to have TWO consecutive hardware faulty iPhone4 in two days? Don't tell me I am the only one trying to return. Please try yourself to call the iPhone4 Return hoteline number : 1800-6927753 yourself and you will know how long you have to wait. That line is really hot and jam pack with people wanting to return. iPhone4 quality is nothing better than the China unknown brand made at the street.
It appears that Apple become so proud on their success on 3G and iPhone4 must have many fundamental design flaw.
Bad Product + Bad Service = Bankrupt
That is where iPhone4 is leading Apple
BTW, I have collected Samsung Galaxy S which I looked down previously..In fact, this is Fantistic and way better than iPhone4 overall.
iPhone4 looks nicer at the first impression and brand image which lead me to wrong decision last week and now I wish to share my iPhone4 bitter experience to the potential users.

The only reason some people manage to sell them for 600$/700$ right now is because of the "OUT OF STOCK COME BACK LATER sign at AT&T".
its a joke, 27 Aug 2010your math dosent make any sense, coz nobody will buy samsung galaxy next year for $300, right ... moreAre you dense ?
The 300$ galaxy S you speak about are used. The lowest brand new galaxy I can find in LA is 375$ atm and even if you call the guy at this price it's already sold, all the 300$ ones are either models with problems or missing the package and accessories (read stolen phones rofl).
If you think you're going to sell a year old iphone 4 16bg 600$ when I see today 3 day old 600$ ip4 32gb for 600$ you're going to be disapointed next year.

If you added a 32gb micro sd to your SGS (costs you 100$) you can add 100$ to your resell value, those things lose no value as they got lifetime/10 year warranty.
So let's herpderp.
New iphone 4 32gb => 299$ with contract => resells 500$ after a year.
Total cost : 299$ - 500$ = + 201$ in your pocket.
Samsung SGS 8gb => you can find the vibrant at 99$, or the captivate at 49$ on amazon with contracts => So thats about 149$ with the micro SD => resells for 300$ after a year + 100$ of micro SD => 400$ after a year.
Total cost : 149$ - 400$ => + 251$ in your pocket.
Who spoke of resale value ? Even if the galaxy S resale value is 250$ next year or the iphone 4's 550$, which are realistic expectations, it still has as much "real" resale value than the iphone4.

I do the same thing with my mbps, in the end it only costs me 300$ every two years to upgrade my mbp, which is cheaper than most laptops over 5 to 10 years.

next year the iphone 4 will be worth what the 3gs is worth right now, what is it ? 400$
Why ? because the iphone 4g will be out at 600$
Phone devaluation depends on retail price. Resale value is holding strong as the initial price isn't all that high for such a beastly phone.
SGS retails at 500$ => reselling for 400$ right now 300$ next year if mint condition.
Iphone 4 retails at 700$ => reselling for 600$ right now 400$ next year if mint condition (that means you had the internal battery replaced for some $$$ to apple because over a year a li ion battery loses 40 to 60% of its capacity depending on pocket's heat).
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2010So your saying that if the product is expensive its better? LOLyes iphone 4 is better and I paid $199 for a contract price and after a year I will sell it for 3 times more than what i paid, I phones does keeps its resale value, and samsung galaxy u pay $199 for contract price and they are selling for $300 unlocked on craigslist right now, forget about selling it after year, u have to plant a tree for charity as no one will buy Samsung Galaxy for $100, its very true there is no resale value for these android devices.

My new 1st iPhone4 display black out and over... moreMy company got 200 Iphone 4 as a company upgrade, i did all the transaction and its been a month and we didnt even face a single problem, actually truly speaking I have yet to see a dropped call on my Iphone 4, all the employess got lucky as we got Iphone 4 upgrade, working flawless without a doubt.
It was my complete mistake to chose iPhone4.
My new 1st iPhone4 display black out and over heated on the 1st time charging. I've got a replacement of 2nd iPhone4 but it is also keep resetting and hangup and service center offer to replace the 3rd iphone. Both faulty iPhone are confirm hardware problem. I don't belive i am too unlucky on earth...it is definitely the design flaw. If you still think iPhone4 is best, good luck to you. When you hold (especially with left hand), the signal also drop from 3 bar to 1 bar. This phone must be the terminator for Apple.
Worst still, the service.......I decided to change to Galaxy S but there is pushing and blaming each other between Apple Service and Singtel (carrier) Service. The fact is that once you buy iPhone, you are in a Deep-Sxxx and impossible to return. I was told by Telco that I have to return to Apple but Apple accepted first but after 5 days delay, Apple told me to return only to Telco. They told me only accept return for Signal Reception drop issue only after I have been waiting for the return process. Not only that, I have to wait 40 minutes to get through the iPhone4 return number (1800-6927753 option 5) whenever I need to call. I need to talk to 5 different people from iPhone and none of them follow up and the DEAD iPhone is in my hand for one week and I am stuck in between the Apple - Telco pushing each other.
It was a long story..Singtel telco finally accepted me to exchange with Galaxy only after I have told them that I will publish the issue and to write to CEO. I will share my experience to wherever and whenever possible. I do not hate any mobile before but APPLE iPhone4.
