    I'm sure this has been done to death but I'm faced with this decision this afternoon.

    T-Mobile UK are letting me swap my Galaxy Portal for either a Galaxy S or a Desire (for a bit of cash) and I need to decide which to go for. I'm very torn. They claim they're paying the same for each handset so it's the same deal whichever I go for.

    In my mind:

    Galaxy S:
    'More Expensive' phone (at the moment)
    No one I know has one (a few Desire's around)
    Bigger/Better screen

    Desire:
    More solid construction
    Sense is nicer than Touchwiz
    HTC are much better at supporting their phones (O/S updates).

    Someone help, please!

    Good choice of phones mate and a hard decision. Think you have answered it above though, The Galaxy S is more expensive, is not as well built, Touchwiz is aweful and Samsung support is terrible...Only one choice mate.

    I've had my desire for about a month now and it is stunning! Sure there is the odd thing that could do with tweaking but thats the great thing about Open Source, someone will develop something and then it will be integrated into a future upgrade.

    Hope whichever you choose you enjoy :D

    The sensible side of me says Desire but my irrational side says Galaxy S.....

    I know quite a lot of people with a Desire already so it would be nice to have something different - but then different doesn't mean better!

    Galaxy is worth a lot more so take that, sell it then buy a Desire. You should get your outlay back and with some left over.
