Enough with the iPhone 4 comparisons, Im tired of hearing what the iphone has over this phone (or any other) or not. Its not trying to be, mimic or operate like a stupid iPhone. Some of us never owned an Iphone in the first place, nor want to. Every phone review that has to compare to the iPhone is biased and garbage. Please reviewer give us a honest review for once.

Agreed! Its like comparing a supercar with a speedboat. Even though both are vehicles, they still are two completely different things and there should be no reason for compare or contrast. This whole IPhone thing going on needs to stop because, this craze has gone to far. I've met people who would get this phone and not even known how to turn it off. I even talked to someone once who told me "I want to get that phone that you can see the person you're talking to on the screen" (It's incredible how marketing can make such an impact)...There is more fish in the sea, and to be honest with you I prefer a phone that would not drop so many calls. I don't want to talk about this "phone" anymore, so reader, if you reply to this message I apologize f...

If you're tired of hearing about the iPhone, then I certainly understand your frustration, but it is a relevant comparison in this case.

I wouldn't say it's comparing a supercar and a speedboat, more like comparing a Lexus with a Mercedes.

"Every phone review that has to compare to the iPhone is biased and garbage"

It was compared to the other Galaxy "s" phones;

" only Samsung Galaxy S phone in the U.S. with the slider option"

It was compared to the "droid" line-up on Verizon;

"makes it a nice contrast to the more masculine Droid phones"

It was compared to the EVO 4G (many many times);

"or the sharper Evo 4G"

It was compared to the Droid 2;

especially on the Motorola Droid 2

It was compared to other Samsung phones using the TouchWiz interface;

"Samsung has created better music player designs for other TouchWIZ phones in the past,"

It was compared to ALL 1GHZ smartphones;

"This is the worst camera I'v ...

This was a good review. I agree it was filled with valid comparisons against other phones in it's class. However, I think the OP is upset because the comparisons to iPhone were basically how the Epic isn't as good.

When you consider how ridiculous iPhone Fanboi's (not that you are one Rich) act in that they literally refuse to admit that anyone could build a phone as good, if not better, (in some ways) it makes those who despise iPhone a bit defensive.
