Samsung Galaxy S vs Apple iPhone 4: Smartphone showdown

Which is the better phone -- Samsung's Galaxy S or Apple's iPhone 4?

Samsung's Galaxy S is challenging Apple's iPhone 4 in the smartphone market.

Samsung's Galaxy S is challenging Apple's iPhone 4 in the smartphone market.

Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S has an all-plastic body, which is disappointing given it's a premium smartphone. The menus don't look as polished as the interface on HTC's Android smartphones, though this remains a personal preference. The iPhone 4's stainless steel band (which also doubles as the phones antenna) is certainly intriguing, and at just 9.3mm thick, it is one of the world's thinnest smartphones.

The Samsung Galaxy S may hold an advantage over the iPhone 4 when it comes to multimedia. Though the iPhone's iPod integration is one of its outstanding features, the Galaxy S supports DivX and Xvid video files. On the downside, the Galaxy S lacks an LED flash for its camera.

The Samsung Galaxy S is currently available exclusively through Optus, but will soon be available on Telstra and VHA. The iPhone 4 is available through all four Australian carriers — Telstra, Optus, VHA (Vodafone and 3) and Virgin Mobile.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
