Samsung Galaxy S 4G

I must say that this phone is the best phone made by Samsung I have ever owned. For a long time after owning several Samsung phones, I would not buy them for a long time, but this one is the best ever. Coming from the Sprint HTC EVO, Blackberry Bold, HTC Hero, HTC Touch Pro 2, I highly recommend getting this phone if you are looking for a phone that costs less than dual core phones, but does the same thing.

Pros
Super AMOLED screen
Good battery life and power saving features
4G is HSPA + that WORKS (4G was a joke on Sprint)
VERY, VERY FAST DOWNLOAD/UPLOAD SPEEDS
This phone DOES NOT BURN A LOT OF BANDWIDTH, unlike HTC devices, so you can be a heavy user as I am, and not burn your data cap limits
Very clear call quality
Speaker is loud and clear
Phone ringers are loud and clear
16 GB memory card
Ability to move apps to card
Phone has a call reject list that accurately blocks unwanted callers built into the call function
Camera takes beautiful pics even without a flash
Video is crystal clear and movies play clear
TouchWiz interface does not interfere with the overall Froyo 2.2 Android OS experience, compared to Sense UI on HTC devices that overpowers Android OS

Cons
Comes with too many pre-loaded apps you cannot get rid of
Internal memory is less than 1GB with all the apps preloaded in the phone
When the battery is low, the screen automatically dims and it can be annoying at times
Lack of Gingerbread update (COME ON SAMSUNG)

The Cons of the phone are tolerable. There is no perfect phone, but this one comes close to it. Way to go Sammy!!
