camera and colors are better on samsung. sanyo java and audio stats are slightly better. i hear the samsung freezes sometimes too. sanyo has speakerphone and looks better. with the sanyo, when the cheap faux nickle gets scruffed, you can replace it for $20 (maybe they'll make leather faceplates)...the samsung will just gradually look uglier and uglier while the faux nickle/pewter gets scruffed.
