Photo shoot of HTC Magic & Samsung I7500 shows comparisons
CNET Asia some how managed to get two of the highly anticipated Android devices to do a side by side photo shoot. Both the HTC Magic and Samsung I7500 posed for the camera to show off to the world their appeal. In one of the photos, the I7500 was running an early firmware version that made the AMOLED touch screen look dimmer than what it should be. So the image taken does not give an accurate representation of what the final product will look like. Nonetheless, we know that AMOLED screens are superior in terms of color levels and brightness. HTC's Magic looks to be slimmer between the two in terms of dimension, but the I7500 will be packing a 5-megapixel auto-focusing camera with flash. It's not to say that the Magic won't be outdone with its 3.2 megapixel camera. Either way, these two hot Android devices are sure to make a splash when released.

Do Android phones have a patent for ugliness? I'm not a big fan of the dare, instinct, storm, pre, etc; but at least they are not butt ugly. What's up with the arrangement of buttons on the HTC Magic?

well the htc magic looks way better than g1... kinda reminds me of the vzw htc touch... and that samsung i7500 looks pretty solid and great... i don't know if it's just me, but one thing for sure... it's not butt ugly...

I feel the design for the HTC is a little bit awkward. The buttons and the the phone's curves just don't seem right to me personally. The samsung is more robust but it reminds me of nextel/boost mobile. But those are just my opinions and maybe I was a little extreme in my previous comments.
