The Galaxy S runs circles around the Iphone 4. Ive owned the Captivate on ATT for about a week and it is by far the best smart phone I have ever had. Currently playing Street Fighter 2 Turbo on SNES emulator while streaming Avator from phone in 720p to my 42in HDTV all without even having to root it. Tethering to the netbook Im writing this on now for free with EasyTether(still got my unlimited data from Att). Now that is what you call multitasking. The screen is unbelievable, you really have to see it in real life to appreciate it. I dont take many pictures with my phone but the Night Mode on this phone might be a viable substitute for a flash. All in all I agree 100% with this review. Some of you Apple folks really dont know what you're missing out on.
Work supplied everyone with iPhone 4's today and I currently have a Galaxy S as my personal phone so this article really grabbed my attention for obvious reasons. However there is a clear bias towards the Samsung in this article as half their scores and opinions are honestly outrageous when you compare the phones side by side. I must admit I thought I had done the right thing getting a Galaxy, bigger screen, amoled, no antennegate etc... But it is just chalk and cheese. The screen is just so responsive, the UI so much quicker and the overall feel of the phone is far more fun. The app store is brilliant in comparison and the only thing I have missed today is my widgets :( Antenna issue hasn't hit me yet though, so you may get an unhappy review from me later on if it is as bad as they say!
Anoymous, 12 Aug 2010Guys, I think Samsung Galaxy should win. You can see how many advantages of that phone compare... moreTethering is not about phones. Both support tethering, just AT&T asks us to pay something more. The biggest problem of iphone is that they force me to choose AT&T!

Honestly - iTunes? Thats why I do not want an iPhone
iTunes is the worst and slowest thing ever
thats all I hear is problems with people syncing or using a new computer and nothing works or they lose all their music or something
iTunes is garbage and the reason why I will never use iPod/iPhone
I prefer to drag my media to sd card and/or internal storage without having to use that error prone piece of garbage iTunes

I cant compare those 2.
I-phone 3GS official price in India: Rs.40750/- (No freedom of having choose your own operator! The sales girl @ istore actually told me that I was "entitled" to use iphone only in case I was using it with specific Operator, which means to me that I have to change my 12 years old cell number..what the....)
Samsung Galaxy I9000S price: Rs.28500/- (factory unlocked!)
Seriously the people who think a apple ipod has the best quality sound should just try out creative zen or the microsoft zune's. IT IS FACT THAT YOU GET SHYT HEADPHONES WITH A IPOD. How can many people with that shyt....could even know what amazing sound quality could be?
The clarity and bass sounds so dull on a ipod!
a simple way to show you guys how a ipod sounds like is to load up winamp on your pc on normal equalizers then switch it on ROCK and hear the clarity with great bass.

I have a MacBook pro, and hoped that itunes would be more acceptable on a Mac than on windows. For me, it doesn't. I hate iTunes so much compared to other media library programs, such as the excellent jriver media player, that I have made up my mind that I won't use it anymore. Which means that I'll have to ditch my iPhone 3G, and not upgrade to the 4g. So soon my next phone will be the galaxy. Mainly because of iTunes. Many may like iTunes, but tastes differ and I find it incomprehensible that apple forces me to use a particular program for my music library.
Guys, I think Samsung Galaxy should win. You can see how many advantages of that phone compare to Iphone 4 ? This phone is just great, btw this is their specs. When looking into the apps, Samsung Galaxy is totally wicked. With Wifi tethering and many others, this phone deserve to WIN !
(GO SAMSUNG) but, I don't hate Apple. Their products are just fine.
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2010Oh please, the ip4 sold almost 2million units over a weekend, so don't boast about your samsun... morethe diffr is that samsung wave wasnt launched in america japan uk france and other big countries. they where launched in small countries. if you look at the number of peple it was released to samsung sold relaticly more.
