iPhone 4S, Galaxy S II Comparison Strike By Samsung

It appears that old Samsung is now taking the fight to Apple by way of making a comparison between Apple’s newly unveiled iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S II and releasing to the tech world a graphic of the comparison only 24 hours after Apple’s announcement.

According to the guys over at Slash Gear, the graphic shows a true comparison between the two smartphone with the Android smartphone making it quite clear that their Samsung Galaxy S II is in the lead over the iOS smartphone in more than a couple of points and that the iPhone 4S does indeed lag behind.

The differences between the two rival handsets kick off with the dual core processor, which come out roughly the same, while when it comes to network, Samsung is quick to point out that the Samsung Galaxy S II is a 4G device while the iPhone 4S is 3G.

Screen size is again a big winner for Samsung with the Galaxy S II packing 4.3 or 4.5-inch while the iPhone 4S retains that 3.5-inch, and something the iOS faithful were hoping was going to change with the next generation device, although when it comes to display resolution it goes the 4S way with its Retina Display and 960 x 640 as opposed to 800 x 480 on the Galaxy S II.

Cameras on both devices come out roughly the same, as does 1080p video although Sammy does stipulate theirs is “high profile.” Weight wise the Galaxy S II is the winner again weighing 4.3 ounces while the iPhone 4S weighs 4.9 ounces.

Price is also a factor in the comparison with Samsung’s Android Gingerbread handset costing $199 and $299 and Samsung stipulates without memory limits, while the iPhone 4S comes in at $199 for the 16GB, $299 for the 32GB, and $399 for the 64GB.

All in all I figure Samsung is basically trying to point out that the Samsung Galaxy S II when compared to the iPhone 4S gives more to the potential customer, and probably goes a little way to help Samsung in the continuing legal battle between the two smartphone giants.

  1. Fairly clear who you favor with your last line in the article. Anyone who isn’t biased writing a review would probably have a Facebook account, not a Google + account. You also completely leave out Siri, iCloud and the fact that the Apple camera is better. Throw in gyro stabilization for their 1080p recording and the camera beats the s2 in that arena. People should really wait to do these reviews until the product is in hand and can actually be compared. Samsung wins with 4g and screen size. Although, 14 Mbps download speeds are nothing to ignore. I can’t think of really anything you can’t do in regard to streaming that would need to be faster than that. I stream just fine at home on my wireless N using Roadrunner Turbo at 8mbps clocked. At what point do these download speeds become irrelevant?

    You can throw around stats all day, but if in the end the product isn’t as polished and usable … then who cares. People don’t like apple because their products always have the fastest, newest chips in them … and despite all of Samsungs frantic plagiarism they still don’t seem to get that.
