A friend asked the Lazyweb for help with Samsung Galaxy phone vs iPhone. Here’s my response:
I’m very happy with my Android Samsung Galaxy S. I’ve had it for almost a year now. My last phone was an iPhone 3G. My Samsung had a short battery life so I got a backpack battery for it; it’s a bit large but now no battery problems.
It took a while to get used to the Android. Some of the apps it came with aren’t as good as the stock iPhone apps. IE the calculator app. But there are free and cheap calculator apps that kick the iphone’s calculating ass.

My vmail and email now belong to the Google, and I like it better than Steve owning them.
Android runs Flash in the browser. And it works great. That says just as many bad things about Apple as good things about Android.
I didn’t root my phone and I don’t feel I need to. There is just 1 tiny thing I would change if I were to go to the trouble of rooting the phone.
Your next phone should be an Android.
Oh but I have to say, the iphone 4’s High Dynamic Range camera takes pretty effing awesome pictures.
