iPhone built a reputation on being simple and easy to use, and having everything you need. It's also kind of a status symbol to own an Apple product...... the biggest drawback is you are limited to using iTunes. So no downloading mp3's or avi's - you are stuck with the Apple movie and audio formats (unless you jailbreak/hack your unit) and absolutely no flash games or movies. Samsung (as well as any newer Android device) are just as easy to use and you aren't limited in the media you download and play. Also, new Android units are DESIGNED to be hacked (simple to put in Root mode) for modding. Samsung is great, but I prefer my HTC.
