Comparison has already started between Samsung Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S. But many say that in specs the next gen iPhone scores heavily over Nexus Prime
Samsung Galaxy Nexus is going to be the next big thing for tech nerds. It is touted to be the first smart phone coming loaded with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and hence among the best Android smart phones available in the market.
But notwithstanding the fact that it is the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smart phone, it is not going to be the best when it comes to specification. Though Android fans would say it will be the best performing Android phone due to the better and improved operating system, specs are not even as impressive as Samsung Galaxy S2 that was launched close to six months ago.
October 27 is being very impatiently awaited by Android fans. For them this would be a day when Samsung Prime will come loaded with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system that would be very competitive against the just released Apple’s iOS 5.
But notwithstanding the euphoria surrounding the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the Galaxy Nexus, the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich may not be as impressive as iOS 5. So far there are no indication that it may offer something on the same lines as iMessage and Newsstand.
People are very impressed with the new iMessage that comes loaded with the iOS5 and allows users to communicate (send and receive messages) from their Apple devices. An iPhone user can send messages to another iPhone users almost free, the same way it happens between BlackBerry users.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Prime comes with a far bigger screen and far thinner than iPhone 4S. It is certainly amazing how Samsung has packed such powerful features in such a thin smart phone.
iPhone 4 S meanwhile has created records of sorts. It will be very hard for anyone to break its pre-order records. More than a million units were sold within 24 hours on the very same day when it went for pre orders. I am sure only an Apple iPhone can break this record. Android phones have fans but the fan base is spread between three to four manufacturers and the user base is divided among them.
iPhone 4S specs

8-megapixel camera, Autofocus, Tap to focus, Face detection in still images, LED flash, Video recording, HD (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio. Front camera with VGA-quality photos and video at up to 30 frames per second
Samsung’s next smart phone Galaxy Nexus will come loaded with 1.2 GHz OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor. It will have 1 GB RAM and 32 GB hard disk. It will have 5 mega pixel camera capable of making HD quality video. I am not sure why Samsung has not given it an almost mandatory 8 mega pixel camera. 1.3-megapixel front camera could have easily been improved to at least 2 mega pixel camera.
