Couldn't care less about them anyway.
Summary: I was so excited that Samsung realesed their Galaxy S phones the time that they did. I was up for an upgrade from my crappy Samsung Eternity and ALMOST bought an iPhone 4.
I had been always been proud of the fact that I have NEVER owned an iPhone. I tried my best to get around it but I almost couldn't because the iPhone is AT&T's best phone. (Not to mention I hate everything Apple) For months, I have been very intrigued by Samsung's new line of phones called the Galaxy S. Weeks before my upgrade, I keep reading that AT&T's version of the Galaxy S was hitting the day before my upgrade date. I was so excited!!
This is seriously the best phone I have ever gotten. You can customize EVERYTHING on this phone. It runs Android 2.1 and it is not locked-down like the iOS. It is literally a PC in your hand. The Google Voice Search is amazingly accurate. Samsung's Super AMOLED screen makes colors stand out. It's something you have to see for yourself to tell the difference. The battery life is really good especially if you put the Advanced Task Killer on the phone that kills programs running in the background. I highly recommend you download that app because you will be amazed on how many AT&T bloatware opens up when you turn on your phone and there is no way to delete them off the phone.
I would gripe about the phone not having flash and a front-facing camera but I won't. I have lived this long without either of those features and couldn't care less about them. (Not to mention that it has Nightmode for the camera and that works just as good and sometimes better than a flash.)
If you don't want to be a tool like everyone else who has an iPhone, the Samsung Captivate is THE alternative of the iPhone 4. Not only is the Captivate faster than the iPhone 4 now, once Android 2.2 Froyo hits this sucker, there will be not contest between the phones. iOS 4 will be obsolete in a couple of months. BUY THIS PHONE!!!
