Is it worth upgrading from Sam Galaxy 3G to 4G

I currently own a Galaxy 3G and find the internet slow. I do a speed test and usually cant get past 1m, and the upload speed is faster than the download speed.
also the battery does not last more than a day or 2.
I can get a new Galaxy 4g for about $50.
Is it worth the upgrade ?
please let me know what you think .
thank you in advance.

No kickstand...

...bummer. Many saw this as a mere gimmick. But, I actually found it quite functional.

Screen Dimensions on 3D

Is it just me, or does the screen look narrower and taller on the 3d than the EVO?

Samsung Galaxy S 4G or Vibrant??

I bought three used Samsung Vibrants off of Craigslist in the past month and I just noticed that the one I have been using looks allot like the 4G version. They all have the two "eyes" located to the left of the speaker but, the one I have been using has what appears to be a camera hole to the right just like the 4G. Is it possible that I bought a 4G phone? The software says that it is a Vibrant but, I wanted to know if perhaps the phone could have been flashed that way? Is there a way to clone the 4G software and install it on my phone if it is in fact a 4G? I keep looking at the supplied photos and the Vibrant does not show this additional camera hole on the right, only the GalaxyS 4G. Are there variations on the Vibrant model?

What OS is the Galaxy running?

The reason I ask is that I have bought a few used Vibrants on Craigslist and I have one that looks different than the rest. The "normal" ones all have the eyes on the left of the earpiece that turn the screen on when you pull your head away but, the "odd" one has what looks like a camera hole on the right of the earpiece. The other two do not have this. I haven't actually seen the new Galaxy S in person to compare but, thought maybe someone "flashed" this phone wrong and could only get the older Vibrant OS running again. Any thoughts?

Came out with already old Froyo version

It really gets me when I see that T-Mo phones still keep coming out with Android ver. 2.2 even though 2.3 Gingerbread has been out since last year. How long will it take for T-Mo to update this to 2.3? It would have been much better to come out with it in the first place.

TINY internal memory

I retract my previous statement about wishing I had waited for this instead of getting my Vibrant. I am at limit with my current memory using the included 16 gigs and 2 gig micro sd. There's no way the 4g could handle my kind of usage. Rolling Eyes

Just an Upgraded Vibrant!

Why would T-Mobile offer this version of the Galaxy phone series when Samsung is about to launch the Galaxy S II shortly? The new phone offers the new dual-core Orion processor, NFC, 8 mega pixel camera, and,1080p video capture. While the S or should we call it the Vibrant II has the Cortex A8 Hummingbird 5 mega pixel camera with 720p video capture. Will we see the newer version of the phone later this year? How about calling it the Vibrant Extreme!

T-Mobile needs to step up its game and become an industry leader and offer the latest phones withe the newest features.

Correction on the battery

Great mini review Eric, but there is one falsehood in your review. The Galaxy S 4G actually has a bigger battery, one of the biggest I've ever seen at 1650, compared to the Vibrant's 1500. Might want to correct that.

iPhone - Tmob

OK, when the iPhone came out, I still had my Dash, the one BEFORE the 3G Dash. Then I picked up an Original 4GB iPhone and unlocked it. It's been great! Now it feels long in the tooth because of the network speeds. My iPhone still connects at EDGE speeds. The S 4G looks like a fantastic Android model so I think it's upgrade time.
