There was a comparison about Google and OSM a fow years ago. It showed 
that even on some non-European countries (e.g. Africa) a lot of citties 
are mapped better in OSM than Google: at least at that time there was no 
financial benefit for the commercial map providers to map all these 
places. Maybe this improved a little bit, but I don't think so...
