    hi friends i am a 16 yr old boy hunting for a new phone(a smartphone at that).i have shortlisted the samsung galaxy s and the htc desire.please help me out.

    P.S.-this phone must serve me good for at least 4 years as in my country there's no subsidy offered by service providers on smartphones with locking,plans etc.so i must get my money's worth.

    read the system comparisons and watch videos on Youtube before you eventually get ur mind made up.

    Find the difference and decide whether any of them aredeal-breakers for you. That's what I did.
    Desire ---------------------Galaxy
    Camera Flash ---------------None
    A good screen --------------The best screen
    Sense ----------------------Touch Wiz
    Proven updates -------------Not so much
    Decent build quality ---------Plasticky
    Led Notifications ------------Nope
    Looks original ---------------Looks like an iPhone rip-off
    Crap battery ---------------Average battery
    Usable mobile gaming -------Dedicated GPU
    4 gig memory card ----------8/16gb hard drive
    Many recommendations ------Many warnings

    That's pretty much what made my mind up but each to their own and I imagine you will get biased results posting this in a Desire forum.

    There's already a large thread on this forum with an almost identical title. Search for it and have a good read.

    Personally i read all the reviews i could find on the net & ended up deciding on the desire, but the galaxy s wasn't out when i got my phone.
    There are loads of pros & cons for each phone, if you are prepared to go the rooting road then you needn't worry about how quick the updates come.
    Samsung have got a poor reputation for follow up care, there again i am sure you can find quite a few would say that about HTC.
