iPhone 4 vs. Galaxy S: Extreme rally challenge

Our lovable and eccentric British chums at CNET UK have made a lighthearted head-to-head video pitting two of 2010's hottest cell phones--the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S.

Actually, maybe "lighthearted" isn't the best description of their test. Completely "off the wall" might be a more apt summary, as they've conducted the entire grudge match while being driven around in a rally car by professional World Championship Rally driver Dani Sordo. Maybe all that tea's finally gone to their heads.

Despite the chaotic setting, the test begins in a fairly structured manner. First, they try to discover whether the iPhone 4's predictive text feature is more accurate than the Samsung Galaxy S' fancy new Swype system.
