While Samsung Galaxy S is under HTC’s flagship Desire Smartphone, so it carries the same looks of the HTC smart phones and weighs 118 grams. The iphone 4’s stainless steel band (which also doubles as the phones antenna) is definitely fascinating. Moreover, at just 9.3mm thick, it’s claimed to be one of the world’s thinnest Smartphone’s. Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S has an all-plastic body, which is unsatisfactory given that it’s an A class Smartphone.
