Galaxy S Vs. iPhone 3G
So as most of you know I went from the iPhone 3g to the Galaxy s.
Well it's now time to tell you the problems I have had and what I have liked about it. I am not considering this a review, but a comparison from the 3G to the Galaxy S.
I have read and heard that the GPS on the Galaxy isn't that good, in my one time use of it I had no problems, but as I use it more I will update that.
The internet speed of the Galaxy S was blazing fast even on Edge, but now I would say it's roughly the same as the iPhone4, and not that much faster than the 3G.
I like how the texting looks on the 3G better, but the Galaxy S is more consistent in sending messages, only one failure and I was in pretty much a dead zone so I considered it reasonable. Although texting on the Galaxy seems to be easier and the auto-correct gives more options than the iPhone does.
The Email on the Galaxy is quite horrible, I am getting spam that dates back to 1969, I never once had that type of issue with the iPhone. Actually just as I typed this I got a Email from 12/31/1969. The iPhone sends emails a little slower, but I would take it over what the Galaxy is offering.
The camera is way way better on the Galaxy than the iPhone, but it also has around 3-4 mega-pixels if I remember correctly. Also I can take videos now without having to jailbreak my phone which is nice. I haven't taken any videos yet, but I may take one when I go to the dog park just to test it outdoors.
Multitasking is great, I never knew what I was missing out on with the iPhone. But ever since I got the Galaxy I jail-broke my iPhone and have multitasking on there, but it goes unused now.
All in all I would choose the Galaxy S over the 3G and 3Gs. But I did have the pleasure of borrowing my friends iPhone 4 for roughly 48 hours and I would have chosen that if I had the chance again. From what I have read on here and heard on the news I thought the iPhone 4 would be a huge failure, but the Galaxy S has more to be worked out than the iPhone.
So for anyone who is going to upgrade to a smart phone follow this order of phones which are all in the same price range roughly.
iPhone 3g<iPhone 3Gs<Galaxy S<iPhone 4.
I hope this comes in handy for someone, and if you have any questions or would like me to test anything else just let me know.
