Galaxy S vs iphone 4

more pics for screen comparison

More videos comparison:

Haven you bought the right phone?

Galaxy S Samoled vs iphone4's rectina

1.) True black (infinite contrast ratio) vs iPhone 4 CR at 800:1. Black is black on Super amoled but grey or washed out black on rectina.

2.) 1 MICRO seconds Refresh rate vs 25 mill seconds aka faster image response time, no ghosting

3.) Infinite viewing angle vs varying degrees of brightness at different levels without losing colours.

4.) Emissive display has better color reproduction vs transmissive displays

5.) OLED doesn’t need a back-light so you will actually have more battery life watching movies and galaxy s has a 1500mah battery compared to iphone4's 1420mah.

6.) Larger screen 4 inch vs 3.5 inch. Bigger for you to your fingers on.

Galaxy S hardware vs iphone4's hardware
sgx 540 GPU (90million triangles per sec) vs sgx 535 GPU (28million triangles per sec)
1GHZ A8 Cortex processor vs underclocked 800mhzA4 processor(made by samsung too)

Able to insert a 32GB sd card on top of 16GB on the galaxy s vs unadd-able 32GB ip4

SWYPE (very very VERY relaxing way of inputting text with 1 finger) vs tedious tapping

HDMI out via cable or wirelessly through dLNA certified devices vs well idk

Widgets and live wall paper on your galaxy s vs Dull folders on the apple's home screen

Galaxy S screen aspect ratio is 15:9 while iphone4 has 15:10, which means when fitting a 16:9 wide screen video you will experience a thin black line on rectina in top. The image area gets lesser on the iphone4 if your video has subtitles.

An unrooted galaxy S is as free as a jailbreaked iphone4. And you have to jailbreak iphone4 to get freedom on an average of once/month.

Galaxy S do not have the death grip

ip4 cracks on first drop, gorilla glass is much tougher than the one on ip4

Too many people carrying a ip4, you are not unique if you have one

Galaxy S is lighter

Flash 10.1 on galaxy S vs erm idk

Internet tethering right out of the box for galaxy s via wifi (can connect up to 3 devices including your laptop) vs erm idk

How to stop my download on Galaxy S? There isn't a cancel button on the notification bar!

Simple, just switch to flight mode and the download will be canceled. If in any case do you want to delete the file that has been downloaded by accident, you can either look for it under your sd card> download folder or going to your internet browser> menu> more > downloads and a download history will appear, clear them from there.

Why is Galaxy S keep getting drained off it's power?

You can avoid this by downloading an advance task killer from the android market. Set it to every 30 mins kill off all applications and free up memory. Remember you must also disable the "allow background data" options from the settings. Avoid using applications that has Ads. Lower down your screen brightness. You might also want to download "APNdroid" from the android market. This is a very useful app that allows you to toggle between non gprs and gprs data xfer mode.

Installation instructions:
1) use the adb to install the .apk files (inside the zipped download files) -> more info at first post of this whole blog.
2) the rest of the files in the zipped download files are actually the data files. Extract them to your sd card so that in the end the path where everything gets dumped in will be like this eg. sd card:/gameloft/games/nova/ These data files are somewhat preloaded files so that you dont have to download any stuff from the internet to enjoy your games.

Take note that the directory is gameloft/games not gameloft/game

It is recommended that you use a download manager to download the files if they are moving at snail pace because sometimes the connections drop.

How to install non market .apk games on Galaxy S ; ADB (Android debugger bridge) ; How to use ADB to install games ?

Want to play free games on your newly bought android phone? You have came to the right place!

Follow my instruction closely and you will be on your way to pleasure!

Important Things you need/need to do!:
1) usb cable to connect your phone to your pc
2) usb driver cd that comes alone with your phone package
3) Android SDK
4) Check phone settings: menu>settings> applications> tick "Unknown sources" then go to "development", tick "USB debugging".

K here are the instructions>

step 1: After you have downloaded the Android SDK, unzip to a folder. eg D:\android-sdk-windows\

The tools to install the games onto your phone is called ADB (Android Debugger Bridge), is inside the Android SDK zipped file and it runs in MS DOS mode, therefore do the following steps so that you can access it in your ms prompt:

Right click My Computer for Properties> Advance tab > system variables > path > edit > variable value > key in the file directory of your "tools" folder. eg D:\android-sdk-windows\tools

remember to add a semicolon in front as a separator between other paths !

After all these just press OK.

step 2:
Install the usb driver to your pc with the usb driver cd that came along with your phone purchase.

Connect your phone to your pc via the usb cable.

check whether your usb driver is working by looking at here. I hope you know the way to device manager because I am not going to go into that:

Now you are connected!

step 3: now the time has arrival to carry out your installation

IMPORTANT Now you need to make sure your sd card in your phone isn't mounted when connected to your pc. To check if it is mounted, drag down the message notification panel at the home screen (the panel that shows new unread messages which you can access by tapping and dragging from extreme top to bottom at the android home screen). Sorry I can't provide any screenshot for this but I believe my description has been obvious enough.

Make sure that your SD card is unmounted!

Games are installed by those .apk files. Here is one game which you can download for demonstration purposes : Angry birds

Put it in a folder on your pc. eg d:/apk

Let the installation starts!

follow closely
on your pc go start>run>cmd>ok

A ms prompt window will pop out, if you cannot access cmd, then make a google search on how to enable it.

type the following to install:

adb install -l [Full path of the apk file][apk file name]

the -l is L not i

eg. adb install -l d:/apk/viv.tehbirds.apk

Then woot! if your installation is successful, you will see something like installation success on the ms prompt.

If you got an error that says " error: device not found ",
it means you NEVER follow my instructions carefully ! Re read again then.

Some games require downloads from the internet, and if your version of .apk is outdated, you will not be able to play the game. Treat is as a piracy protection from the developer and find another! Please try not to rename the .apk files because download won't work if you do that.
