if apple doesn't come to Sprint this might just be the transition I'm looking for.

Maybe they made a deal, they can make a phone that looks like the iPhone and they (samsung) will supply Apple with the 4 inch super AMOLED screens for the 4G iphone.

Sounds about right.

no surprise here, samsung have been quite uninspired for a while it seems. at least it has android on it so it can be themed away from that boring iphone replica home screen i guess.

I like the text feature where you slide across the keyboard and it types what you slide. I also like that GPS feature where it shows you on the screen the locations and how far they are away as you turn around places drop off and new ones appear.

I actually think Apple is going to use that 4" Super AMOLED in their next iPhone. Where Apple excels though the most is in software, that's going to likely be the most exciting part of iPhone 4.0

Notice how even 3 years later, their immitation iphone looks uglier than the real thing.
I think it's quite possibly the most blatant iPhone clone that a genuine phone manufacturer has made so far. :(

At least Morotola, HTC, LG and SonyEricsson have had some kind of originality in their designs, and I agree, ugly to boot!

I didn't think it were possible to have a more boring springboard than the iPhone but Samsung really captured it and elevated the level of boring to new heights.

I know which one I'd prefer, The Galaxy S. yes, Samsung have obviously skinned Android to make it look iPhone esque but hardware wise the Galaxy S tramples the iPhone. Have a look for the review videos on YouTube, the screen is amazing :eek:.

Right, better hardware always reflects better user experience.
