Though the streamlined iPhone experience has won many fans, Apple's closed platform means the iPhone 4 doesn't offer the same flexibility as smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S II. The iPhone has an inferior notification system to Android phones, and it doesn't let you customise and display live widgets on your home screen. By the same token, the iPhone interface and overall user experience are far more polished than what is currently on offer from Android phones.
The Samsung Galaxy S II Android phone will launch in Australia in May or June, and should be available through Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. Pricing has yet to be announced.
