Why? You made a stupid, biased comparison. The Xperia Ray has Android 4.0 which the Galaxy S doesn't, so it's significantly faster. It has metal frame and a better plastic in the back. Why wouldn't have an Xperia Ray a GIROSENSOR? The points are nonsense. And the camera is way more better in the Xperia than the Galaxy's.
I would like the Sony xperia ray because it's faster than galaxy and hd.
Well, there's a lot of misinformation here. The biggest ( that was a positive surprise for me ) is that my Ray downloads at a stable 6Mbps, both alone and in tether-mode and as Wifi hotspot, it being a single file or multiple files or torrents.I wonder where you're pulling these facts from, as they are dead wrong. EDIT : it also uploads at 3Mbps.
Galaxy s comes in two versions 8 and 16 GB so change that to 8/16 GB instead of just 16. Galaxy s has no camera flash. Galaxy s has tv-out throw the 3,5 mm jack and you kan buy a micro usb to hdmi cable that works with the galaxy s not 100% if it works with i9000 but i think so sense it works with other versions of galaxy s.
Hi Sejonhewo, our site compares every phone against every other phone, we strive to have accurate information on each phone.  Thanks for pointing out those issues, we'll get them fixed up!  I'm a bit insulted though that you have called me a retard.
Galaxy S have wifi hotspot to and do not have camera flash. Retard that did this comparison should read more about the devices.
Galaxy S have video output to tv, tard!
