This unboxing seems a tad odd to me. Only be cause the black iPhones didnt come with the felt cloth....did we get ripped off for a price of cotton? Lol

I don't know why that's pathetic. They came up with it and made it really popular, so I don't see why they shouldn't patent it. Same goes for the pop thing. Screen keyboards on other phones didn't even have that till Apple added it. At least that goes for America I believe. (why couldn't we just start off with all the phones that Japan gets...)

Color balance was way off while shooting video's as well. Read GSM Arena's comparison of the Galaxy S and iPhone 4 and you'll learn all about how images and video turn out to be not very good with the iPhone 4.

funny, i actually purchased the captivate and the video and the photos cannot compare to the iphone's. If you wanna try it out, the samsungs are only selling for 300-350 without contract on kijiji right now.

Captivate does an average job with photo quality. I had it for a week and compared it head to head with my N97, and my N97 proved to have a MUCH better camera. I expected that honestly, but you would think Samsung would give it a very good camera seeing how it's a high end device and all supposedly. HD video was good, but nothing that really impressed me. I did however really like the fixed focus which allowed for recording objects from 6" away without being out of focus.
