Samsung Galaxy SII vs. iPhone 4

When it comes to smart phones, there are only two which are the most popular, the iPhone 4 and the new Samsung Galaxy S II. They are both great performing smart phones, but which is better, we will found out in this post.
So , lets start with the dimensions.

Samsung has 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5 mm which makes it's screen 4.3 inches and only 8.5mm thick.
The iPhone has 115.2 x 58.7 x 9.3mm  which makes it's screen 3.5 inches and 9.3mm thick.

So the Samsung is chosen the winner of this round.

The next round is about performance.

Samsung has 1GHz Tegra 2 dual core CPU and 1GB RAM which makes it faster than
iPhone which has only 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and 512mb of RAM.

So once again the Samsung is the winner.

Now about storage and camera.

They both come with built in storage of 16GB or 32GB, but the Samsung has the ability to expant that storage memory with a microSD up to 32GB more. So with all those High Definition videos and High Quality images, you sure need that memory.

As for the camera ,

Samsung has 8MP rear, 2MP front, 1080p video capture while
iPhone has 5MP rear, VGA front, 720p video capture.
The Samsung has the kind of front camera that even laptops are jelly of.

And the last and most important round, the OS:

Samsung runs on Android OS (2.3) GingerBread
While iPhone runs on iOS 5.

Android is far better than iOS 5 and the main reason for that, is that it's open source, which means that everyone can contribute to make it better, and they already did, and it allows you to make it just the exact way you want it, you can change anything you want. The iOS 5 is very limited, you can't change anything, you may only change the walpaper or the theme, but you can't add widgets like Android.

So with all these said, it is clear that the winner is Samsung Galaxy S II.

I haven't got any of these phones, but based on online research, I made this post.
