iPhone 4S VS Samsung Galaxy S2

The comparison of two of the most inclined/ advanced smartphone have long been anticipated. Of the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S2 which is better? Want to find out? Then lets have a look....


Samsung Galaxy S II  Uses a  Dual Core 1.2 or 1.5 Ghz processor while the iPhone 4S uses an A5 Dual core processor

The Samsung Galaxy S II phones has Exynos 4210 SoC processor clocked at a frequency of1.2 Ghz Cortex A9 dual core processor with GPU acceleration that is supported by ARM Mali 400 MP. The iPhone 4S is powered with A5 SoC consisting of Cortex A9 dual core processor and a powerful PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU.
Talking about the Samsung Galaxy S II phone, the processor is much faster than the iPhone 4G. The iPhone is however, much more faster than the Samsung Galaxy S2 where graphics acceleration is concern.

Operating System
Samsung Galaxy S II  uses the  Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread while the iPhone 4S is run by the iOS 5 operating system.

The main deviation comes in the operating system provided by both the phones. While Android is flying high and Samsung doesn’t leave the Galaxy Series handset, the Galaxy S II phone with TouchWIZ 4.0 has broken the records and it’s the best Android mobile phone to possess. Android OS is liked by everyone because of its open source and easy customization. It’s pretty straight comparison, the iPhone 4S locks you with iOS 5 which is completely revamped with message notifications, new camera app and other changes. The Android 2.3 looks stale when compared to iOS 5 . However a clear-cut comparison between the best operating system depends on the preference of the users whether to go for open source or be with iOS.

                                                           Display Screen

Samsung Galaxy S II has a  4.3 inches Super AMOLED Plus display while the iPhone 4S  has a little smaller 3.5 inches IPS LCD display

The Galaxy S II phone has WVGA 4.3 inches Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen display with a maximum resolution of 800 x 480 pixels while the iPhone 4S has 3.5 inches IPS LCD touchscreen display with 640 x 960 pixels resolution. The iPhone 4S beats the Galaxy S II phone in terms of pixels and resolution but Galaxy S II with the 4.3 inches large screen plus amazing Super AMOLED display providing higher colors and contrast ratio is the better in terms of Display.


Samsung Galaxy S II –has an 8 mega pixel rear and 2 MP front facing while iPhone 4S also has an 8 mega pixel rear camera along with a basic VGA camera on front
The statement above speaks for itself, it is evident that both phone’s main camera which is the rear, are similar.
However, the Samsung Galaxy’s 2mega pixel front camera is way better than the iPone that is just using a basic VGA front camera. This in turn doesn’t mean that iPhone camera is unsuitable, not to forget that iPhone 4S has a custom ISP design which has the feature like Face recognition using Facetime, Hybrid IR filter and auto white balance.
Both the phones are able to record High Definition video at 1080p at a resolution of 30fps but iPhone records much better videos than its competitor. In turn, it doesn’t mean that Galaxy S II camera is crap; it has one of the best cameras among all the Android handsets in the market.


When it comes to Apple they always go for fixed memory which determines its price. iPhone 4S is available in 16 GB, 32 GB & 64 GB models with no external storage. On the other hand, Galaxy S II provides 16 GB of internal memory and it can be expanded further up to 32 GB in size using the microSD card slot. This means that iPhone has the ability to have bigger memory since you can chose to purchase a 60 gb  iPhone while the Galaxy has a maximum 32 GB. The Samsung galaxy would be however, better than an iPhone 4S 16GB.

  Network & Speed


Accordingly the specifications Galaxy S II clearly emerges as the winner as it has 4G WiMax capabilities. Along with that the HSPA+ connectivity provides you a top speed of 21 Mbps. You would be disappointed if iPhone 4S is just providing 3G HSPA speed of 14.4 Mbps only.


The iPhone 4S has a dedicated camera button, which is absent in Galaxy S2. However, Galaxy S2 comes with rechargeable battery where iPhone 4S doesn’t and it is also clear that iPhone 4S weights 0.6 oz higher than its competitor.

With all been said, I implore you to decide which is the best of these phones is. They are both two great phones and I think that the Galaxy is slightly in front. Leave you comments below please.
