Improving battery life on Android devices is pretty easy anyway. I have a task manager app that automatically closes unused applications, and since I rooted my phone I have another app that downclocks the CPU whenever I put the phone to sleep.

So far it looks like the galaxy s may beat out the iphone as the partner believes all the istuff is icrap (she even thinks iPods are stupid and iStuff is a way to point out snobby spoiled kids).

I guess it's useless to debate after this kind of infallible logic

But please, post some kind of review of the Galaxy, if you do get it. We need to hear more reviews from owners!

I wouldn't call Apple products crap, some of those products are actually great, through overpriced, like the Iphones.

I try to argue to her that the iPod isn't a piece of crap and its a nice media player but that doesn't even get through to her. At least i'll never have to worry about her wanting a mac in the house.

Don't know what i'd write for a review for the galaxy s provided i get it.

You can also look at the Samsung Wave, it's cheaper, but much less app and Bada is less polish than Android.

Well many people can't keep a phone for 3 years but if you care a bit about it probably many all the phone will do the trick. Exeption for LG chocolat series they are big crap:).
