iPhone 4S vs Samsung Galaxy S2 | Comparison
Yesterday, Apple announced iPhone 4S which although has nothing to do with Android Platform but they still compete with other Phones in same price range and specs. So, we will consider comparison between Samsung Galaxy S2 which can be said as Flagship of Android and Apple iPhone 4S.
Considering that so far nobody has tried the iPhone 4S , we will use the data so far available to make a comparison as accurate as possible on the specifications.
Comparison of specifications between iPhone 4S and Galaxy S 2
Let’s start with the processor, which is usually the main reference for all manufacturers. With the iPhone 4S, we find new processor that includes dual-core A5 but no trace of speed, but is rumored to be at 1GHz . In Galaxy S2, there is dual-core processors at Samsung Exynos 1.2GHz or Snapdragon Qualcamm 1.5 GHz.
RAM and Internal Memory
In terms of internal memory, we are in doubt but if rumor is to be believed then it is maintained at 512 MB, while Samsung model brings 1GB of RAM. Then there is the detail of internal storage, where Apple opts for versions 16, 32 and 64GB, while Samsung offering 16 and 32GB but with the option of extending it through cards microSD.
The comparative information on the screen is difficult to determine, because of the 4S iPhone remains the same as the previous model of type IPS LCD at 960 x 640 pixels with 3.5 inches. Many users of iPhone were waiting for a reasonable jump to 4 inches. Samsung has managed to leap further and we have the new Super AMOLED Plus , although it retains the 800 x 480 pixels to choose between 4.3 or 4.5 inches . This weakness comes from the operating system Android because, until it reaches Ice Cream Sandwich , you can not take advantage of higher resolutions of 800 x 480 pixels.
Another novelty of the iPhone 4S is the new camera back to 8Mpx accompanied LED flash and front camera for video conferencing type VGA. The camera of Samsung is also rear 8Mpx with LED flash but the camera front reaches the 2mpx . Maybe the new lens system of the iPhone 4S deserves a mention, although the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc already had a slightly higher-spec camera.
With both manufacturers can record video type Full HD 1080p , but make no mistake, because what is important in both cases is the optical sensor and a compact size can not achieve this quality.
All this technology requires a battery, which in the case of 4S iPhone remains internal non-removable, without specifying size. Meanwhile Samsung continues to respect the rules and batteries are removable and capable of 1650 or 1850mAh.
Final Thoughts on iPhone 4S vs Galaxy S2 comparison
The summaries that we have gathered, finally concludes that Samsung Galaxy S II surpasses the iPhone 4S specification, although such final valuations are a bit out of place for expert users, who often choose smartphone very closely primarily by the operating system and then by the specifications. In this way the comparison is only for people who just are interested in having the smartphone to fully function and offer more with given specs.
However we must stress that Apple is the mistress of all their design smartphone like Samsung , but also to develop all the guts of your operating system, in addition to the basic applications of the terminal, in addition to submitting to a control comprehensive than those presented by third parties.
In this section Samsung can only bring your customization layer on the operating system developed by Google , plus some of their unique applications, so that detail in part would be at a disadvantage. Perhaps this could be one of the reasons that has been rumored to be seeking to develop its own operating system- Bada.
Let’s not forget that on October 11, it will be turn of Google and Samsung again where launch of Nexus Prime is confirmed. We will also see comparison between iPhone 4S and Nexus Prime so stay tuned with us. I am sure, the specification would be again surprising after the launch event.
