Iphone 4 or samsung galaxy S - Page 2

post #11 of 22
iphone 4 is a great phone but its too late. Galaxy S seems to be a good phone but is way too old.the iphone 5 is coming soon so wait for that. you should wait because remember you will have this phone for at least 2 years(depending on upgrade time of ur network) so its not worth getting a 1 year old phone when you will be forced to keep it for 2 years. get at least the latest technoligy=iphone 5

They are the same. it's just a matter of preference. Now, How to make a choice. Go for the one with a higher resale value. I will go for iPhone if you're getting it free. I just sold an iPhone 3g 8Gb for 178 bucks. That's almost a 3 year old phone. If your gonna buy it, I'd go for which one is cheaper. Coz both OS can do what the other can do.

As an Apple shareholder, I highly encourage you to buy the Iphone. I don't own one and don't really see the hype being merited, but your purchase would help the bottom line
Edit: To the above poster claiming Iphone5 is coming soon, I literally laughed out loud. Can you share your secret information? The exact question regarding a newer Iphone was rebuffed at the last public event, so I'd love to hear your source.

I also just got an iPhone 4 on Verizon, I almost bought the same phone but I just didn't like it all.
The camera is much better, the touch screen is flawless, the screen/picture is spot on, and the build quality is higher. [doesn't feel like cheap plastic]

If you like to tinker with your phone you'll probably enjoy the GS more.

Galaxy S. Excellent phone for tinkerers out there, massive support for kernels and custom ROM's. Doing the ClockworkMod recovery is easy, and new lagfixes will literally shoot the Galaxy's performance up in benchmarks.

Take the iPhone 4 only if you are able to jailbreak it. ( Free apps , free tethering , themes , etc...). You won't regret it , it's fluid , it has nice games.

The Galaxy S is also a good alternative , but personally to me it doesn't feel as good as an iPhone.. ( fluidity and general experience ).

I'd bet massive sums of money it will be shipping within exactly 3 months from now (before June 26)

Source, they do the exact same thing every year. Yearly cycles are exceptionally easy to predict, they happen at pretty much they same time every year
