Got a few minutes with Samsung Vibrant 4G -- erm, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G (http://www.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-s-4g) -- and guess what. It's the T-Mobile Vibrant (http://www.androidcentral.com/samsung-vibrant) all over again, with a new battery cover, a new 4G radio to take advantage of those sweet HSPA+ speeds, a bigger (1650 mAh) battery, Inception instead of Avatar and ... That's about it.
Otherwise? Same phone, for all intents and purposes. And that's not a bad thing,

Not correct. Take a look at your internal memory. Vibrant has 16Gb. Galaxy S only has 1Gb. It also currently has a memory problem which doesn't allow it to show the correct available memory after you uninstall the bloatware. Most people are showing around 150mb free. You will have to install most apps to your SD card. This could make it slow, and it is a problem with any apps that need a widget.
