Samsung Galaxy S2 vs iPhone 4S comparison continues. Tech experts say both have some advantages over the other. Apple and Samsung fans have very divergent views on the two phones
Samsung Galaxy S2 has been named as the best phone of the year by T3. This happened when Apple’s latest smart phone iPhone 4S is set to hit the market two days from now. In preparation for the launch, Apple has released iOS 5 amid great enthusiasm among its users.
Samsung Galaxy S2 has been in the US market for less than four week now and people are loving it. In fact the phone has impressed tech nerds so much that there seems to be developing a pro and anti iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S2 fan groups.
A reader says, “Commenting from my android based samsung captivate that I have used and loved for the last year. After watching and waiting I am going to get a new galaxy s2 since after months of promise once again apple fails to release even an attempt to keep up with the android phone market. I used to use an iphone 3g and hated it. The only iphone that was a class leader, if it could be called that, was the original and even that sucked. Android os is a much faster and easier to use os than itunes”.
Another reader has this to say, “I’ve had Apple smart phones for the last several years. Super easy to operate, very functional, very well integrated with Itunes. Nice size phone to fit in your pocket also. Was ready to upgrade to the iPhone 4S but then I got a hold of the Samsung Galaxy S2. At first the Android OS was a bit overwhelming. I mean when you’re used to using such simple products as Apple develops you get a little overwhelmed with all the settings/options on the Android os. But after using it several different times in the AT&T stores I was hooked. This phone friggin flies! It makes the Apple products seem like they are years behind in technology. The screen colors on the Samsung are intense, saturated, and just beautiful. The resolution isn’t as insanely crisp as the iPhone 4′s but it is so close it’s barely noticeable. The menus just zip along. The dual core processer in this phone is a game changer. The gps mapping is fluid when resizing as is opening and using any APP- not sticky or hesitant like the iPhones. I also love the Equalizer and Sound effects for music which are non-existent on iPhone. There are just so many more ways to “tweak” your settings and customize your Android phone. Its awesome! Oh and web browsing- this thing flies on a wireless connection. No waiting for pages to load”.
