I'm looking at getting my first smart phone and I have been wondering about all of these things as well, so I love this thread. This is all 100% new to me. I think for me it is going to come down between the Samsung Galaxy and the iPhone 4s. I've heard a lot of amazing things from a lot of people about the Galaxy, and looking at comparisons online, it really seems like the better phone and that's where I'm leaning towards, but I know how to use an iPhone a tiny bit better, so I'm still not sure yet. :/ Does anyone know what the newest Galaxy model is? Because I probably won't be going for the absolute newest one, but a generation before.
