    I need a new cellphone but im stock with Bell canada, There is only 2 choices of android phones right now. The samsung galaxy s or the htc desire z.

    Ok i want a cell with froyo/flash ( right now the sgs doesnt have it in canada ) and i am not shure if i want to root my phone or w8 till samsung release the update. But i am not shure about the desire z to i dont really need the keyboard and i dont trust the hardware.

    So sgs = super amoled, no keypad bigger screen, good cpu
    but no froyo

    desire z = froyo , ok screen, hardware so so, and sense ui and only a 800 cpu but its a gen2

    Should i go with the desire z or the sgs

    Or i should wait till the nexus s or the new dualcore /tegra cell in 2011

    Personally, take this with no bias- I would go for the SGS. There are already Froyo leaks officially from US carriers so Froyo WILL be available soon for our buddies up north. I know Samsung has a bad name sometimes as it pertains to software but the hardware on these SGS's are insane.

    Take my opinion for what it is, my opinion. Regardless of what you choose- it's a good choice. I've heard the Desire Z is a great phone too. SGS is a media and entertainment powerhouse. The Z with it's keyboard is great for people who text a lot.

    I seriously think you answered your question. Get the galaxy s - they will release the froyo update very soon. It is out for t-mobile users in the USA so it is only a matter of time.

    If you want to wait and get the newest thing out there get the nexus s (but be careful in the first 3 weeks it will be a nightmare)

    when something new gets released you will see bugs flying out of the damn phone and after that it will be just fine. :)

    I ve read ( on the forum ) that there s a lot of lag with the sgs, with 2.1 and also with 2.2 if its not root. Is it true ?

    "Lag" is subjective. I have a friend using an old G1 and swears that the app draw scrolling is as smooth as my cousin's Evo. If I were you, I would go into the store and look at it for yourself. Samsung added it's one task manager into the ROM, so all you do is clear the RAM once a day and it's fast as hell. If you can't be bothered to do that, just install ADW launcher and it gets rid of Touchwiz and it will be faster.

    Personally, I like TWiz more than Sense.

    Most often then not, if the store wants to make a sale- they will pull one from somewhere for you to play with.
