    UI Auto Rotate That’s because Android always knows which way is up! lol….. You can even use your phone upside down and the UI buttons rotate with it! ^_^

    My brother has the Galaxy, I have the iPhone 4S and I like it much better. The Galaxy is a plastic bomb that feels cheap to me, it also doesn’t react like the iPhone.
    So iPhone 4S without a doubt.


    1. Wait, how can your friend have it, if it hasn’t even been released? Are you sure you’re not talking about the Samsung Galaxy S? That’s an old phone by now, this is the Galaxy NEXUS – to be released either 17th Nov or 2nd Dec, depending on which source you believe.
