Can the Galaxy possibly conquer the iPhone 4? We take a look at which phone is the better value

Samsung has been providing quite a few top-class handsets recently, covering Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile and its own Bada platforms.

The Samsung Galaxy S promises a lot - taking the competent Galaxy and making it faster with a stunning screen.

However, Apple has its new competitor on the block in the form of the iPhone 4.

Can the Galaxy shoot the iPhone 4 off into space?

Screen:
The Samsung Galaxy S features a 4-inch, 480x800 pixel super-AMOLED color screen.

It's massive and sharp and we'd say it's the best feature of the Samsung Galaxy S, and probably the best smartphone screen out there.

However, the iPhone 4's 640x960 pixels, 3.5 inch Retina display with a glass, scratch resistant cover, is absolutely stunning too.

The larger, crisper screen of the Galaxy S gets our vote though.

Verdict: Samsung Galaxy S

Camera:

The Samsung Galaxy S features a 5-megapixel camera mounted on the back. There's no flash or an anti-shake filter, or video calling as there is on the iPhonr 4.

The Samsung's camera does allow for video recording in HD though, although we're not sure how handy it will be without a flash in low light conditions.

The Samsung Galaxy S also features a secondary camera on the front for making video calls.

Samsung's cameras traditionally produce stunning photos, so we can expect lots from the Galaxy S.

Along with the 5-megapixel camera on the back with LED flash, the iPhone 4 packs in a VGA camera on the front to allow for self-potraits and FaceTime calls.

The more powerful camera on the rear even supports HD video recording, at a resolution of 720p at 30 frames per second.

We see the flash as an advantage here because it means the iPhone is prepared for any low-light situation.

Verdict: iPhone 4
