Samsung Galaxy S vs iPhone 3GS: Size Comparison Pictures

Considering the amount of times people have mistaken the Samsung Galaxy S we were holding for an iPhone 3GS, we figured we might as well put the two together side-by-side.

On with the pictures.

Front View:

Okay, so admittedly, they do look a bit similar. Especially from the front view. The Galaxy S looks like a bigger brother, thanks to it’s 4″ Super AMOLED screen (at 480 x 800 pixels) versus the 3.5″ TFT screen on the iPhone 3GS (at 320 x 480 pixels).

The Galaxy is is quite a bit larger too, at 122.4 x 64.2 x 9.9 mm, compared to the 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm of the iPhone 3GS. It is however a bit slimmer,and lighter (Galaxy S is 119 g, iPhone 3GS is 135 g).

Back View:
