Anonymous, 07 Aug 2010Lost? No winner was proclaimed. And we are not mad either. We're just pointing out how bias... moreThe review is not biased, if you want biased review go to engadget, they did not even compare the Super-AMOLED contrast to the IPS-LCD like gsmarena did, all they did was comparing the pixel density because they don't want to show that steve jobs was being dishonest when he claimed IPS-LCD or what he dubbed as "Retina" is better than Super-AMOLED but so far other reviewers have proved that Super-AMOLED is superior and they did various tests on youtube too. As for the Camera, i Think the iPhone has more advantage due to the LED flash which Galaxy S sadly lacks. The OS is no longer an issue since Android has more than 100k apps and now developers are making apps for both OSs so it depends on the user to chose whether Google or Apple. They both have the same processor. I wouldn't pick either, Id wait for the HTC Ace as is going to be like the EVO 4G but on GSM connectivity.
when u r samsung user, u 'll want to defend samsung is the best. And same goes for apple user. So, this comment session gonna be a big fight.
I use omnia and i8910HD (currently still using). I am not apple user, But I already ordered iph4. coz I dun want to make another mistake again. I've played with both iph4 and galaxy-s in stores. THats all I can say.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2010Lost? No winner was proclaimed. And we are not mad either. We're just pointing out how bias... moreGosh, does apple pay your salary? Why are you so sore about the others conclusions? None of your points are that valid, over saturated pictures are worse because you can't do nothing about that with a photo edit software, and low light pictures with led flash?? Come on, led flash is only good to use as flash light, otherwise they are more a pain than a real advantage. And about the video call, it's embedded on the galaxy-s too, the difference is that you can pick another alternative!! Hardly a let down, in my opinion. And the app store??? Android is mostly free! Isn't that an advantage for you?? Please... And maps??? You have basically the same alternatives for both! Just go to the apps store and pick one!
I bet engadget isn't biased to you right??? The score of the iphone is totally ridiculous on their review, but whatever...
oh, and by the way, apple confirmed that iphone 4 loses more calls than 3gs, so who's being biased here??? Biased and childish, if you're that happy with your phone, good for you, but don't ask for the rest of the world to be blind with you just to help you to justify your choice!
iPhones may be feature rich; but for the price they are quoting, to get an iPhone is not justifiable. iSheeps wont complain about the Antennagate issue since they are holding their iPhones as their Boss said. If he had told to hold their phones in the inverse position also, they will buy the iPhones and hold it like that. Whatever the reviews are iSheeps will always buy iPhones and iPhone haters will always buy other phones and curse iPhones. :)
Samsung Vibrant, Iphone Killa!!
There's no phone Rilla!!

sad people, 07 Aug 2010a good review. Im wondering tho why are people getting so mad that iphone4 lost. I mean comeon... moreLost? No winner was proclaimed. And we are not mad either. We're just pointing out how biased this review is. No one is taking away anything here from samsung. Some of the aspects noted here about the galaxy being better than the iphone is true. Like its display's better contrast ratio with deeper blacks, among other things. But the ip4's advantages seem to have been deliberately missed out. Like in the camera review for example. They didn't bother doing low light photos. Why? Because the galaxy doesn't come with a flash? They gave credit to the galaxy's videocalling advantage being able to videocall either by 3g or wifi, but how about the ip4's advantage of facetime out of the box without the need for apps, and the facts that it does work smoothly and much more stable than any videocalling implementation out there. The iphone clearly has a big lead as far has the apps stores are concerned. They said it themselves, yet they gave the iphone 9 points and galaxy 8? Just 1 point? Come on. As for web browsing, they recognized the galaxy being faster than the ip4. True. But only on wifi connection. They did not bother with 3g. Why? Because the ip4 beats the galaxy in speed on 3g connection. Why didn't they bring up inconsistencies and poor implementation of the galaxy's gps and navigation implementation? Because the ip4 edges it out in that department especially with the ip4's gyroscope integration with its maps.
There's actually more ip4 advantages that they deliberately missed out to make the galaxy shine more even when they didn't really proclaim it a winner. How about them bringing up the ip4's antennagate issue and leaving it at that and giving the ip4 a low score when the truth is, the ip4 has lower dropped calls rate according to at&t's OFFICIAL report, and the fact that the ip4 also has better reception and call quality than the 3gs. And they just gave it a 4? Come on. I don't mind a close fight, but this is just too biased. Be fair and honest. That's all we're saying.
To those that, have commented that the antenna issue isn´t a serious issue, it is one of the most serious issues for a cellphone, because what´s the most basic function of the cellphone? It is to make calls. And to some people that keep telling that they can't make drop phone calls, it is because the problem isn't where the signal is great, it is in places where the signal isn't very good. I'll give one example of other subject: If you buy a car(a pricey one) and it function normally
, but in 2% of the time it won't function, would you find it acceptable?
And I'll say one fact that happened in my country(Brazil:
Apple may be banned from sellin iphones in less than 180 days, in my country, because to sell officially in Brazil, the Company has to offer repair support, even after the warranty is expired, or is caused by bad use(of course the custommer has to pay), or the company must have another company that will offer the service officially.
My appologies if I wrote something wrong, but english is not my primary language.

is it that ur reason to denied the review.
just another men with kid mentality and attitude.
Jackson Melling, 07 Aug 2010There are no Apple haters here, there are only Apple PEOPLE haters. The reason Apple is hated ... moreExcuse me? Go to other articles like the n8's or evo's. See if you can see iphone users going there to mock those devices. Maybe one or two. But go to any iphone4 articles in here and read the comments from all haters from all other users. Iphone haters even post more comments than iphone users, and you have the nerve to say that the iphone is hated because of its users? Iphone users mostly don't even bother with these websites. Also, iphone users are mostly respectful and ethical with the way they write.
a good review. Im wondering tho why are people getting so mad that iphone4 lost. I mean comeon just cause apple releases something doesnt mean other phones arent better. Lets be honest here. APple advertises video calling as if it were the newest feature and only they had made it. JUst actually read the review and then comment. SAmsung has been around in the phone business for a long time. Give them atleast a little bit of respect. THEY CAN make a phone thats better.
seems like most of the iphone fans boy already been brain-washed by steve...what a shame...
what a bias review.. clearly u guys are trying to make out samsung galaxy is a better phone but really it an't. Not to say iphone is better by much. They both have pros and cons but most parts of the review favours the samsung over the iphone anyway.. not much of a review to me

owh man..u know nothing about what u say.
the spec has been list by @Pika is not just in paper.
is has been tested and bechmark in real life.
u can read the review in phonearea, comparison between Apple-A4 and samsung-hummingbird.. the result seem suprise, Apple-A4 is far away behind to compete with samsung-hummingbird..
shamo on u techii
There are no Apple haters here, there are only Apple PEOPLE haters. The reason Apple is hated so much is not because of their product but because of their fans.
Drop the arrogance and smug attitude then you and your beloved products may get some respect.
thank you gsm arena for having the balls to tell the truth.
techiii, 07 Aug 2010Wow I can see lot of apple haters here, the unlock code and jailbreak is out now freedom from ... morewhat ure saying is that just because all of the features are listed in the iphone ( the ones u mentioned), it must mean that other phones cannot have equal or better specs. I agree fully with the whole review. Iphone is overpriced and as you said "hardly". LOL my 5 year old phone hasnt had a dropped call yet.
Pika, 07 Aug 2010@techiii
Hardware wise, the galaxy S is a BEAST.
The "Apple A4" is actually a sa... moreAgain what u are seeing is papers when you actually use Samasung galaxy s realistically in your hand the 720 p hd video is jerky with low frame rates, further more
even in terms of games and graphics samsung will never be tested at a full potential coz android cannot handle high end games, and big developers will not use android for their development coz there is no money there,
I just wanna tell u after testing Samsung Galaxy s, is just another Android phone, people using Htc desire or smasung galaxy will not feel any difference realistically, these android phones comes and go after sometime, as any other brand will take out a higher spec android phone and people will forget Samsung galaxy s, its true coz the competition is so high.
Iphone 4 is better in benchmarkings by the way
But at the end of the day, I think the iPhone4 is more desirable than the Galaxy S.
If both phone is on the table for you to pick...I could honestly say that the iPhone4 will disappear twice as much as the Galaxy S.
Yes. Truth hurts.
