The original article linked says 4.6'' screen so I don't know why Phone Arena's article says 4.3''.

That's because they are taking into account the status bar on the top and the three soft buttons on the bottom, which are not counted as part of the display as these always remain on the screen to serve as navigation keys. Honestly who cares it is still one amazing ass screen.

thankfully apple just set the bar for the next OS update so low, i dont think android could trip over it by accident with whatever it brings to the table.
i bet they are really gonna have to worry about that new "send snail mail from the phone" feature from iOS.. thats game changing!!! lololol

I just read the new iOS5 updates and ummm there is a disparity.
Music player is 10x better.
The camera is 10x better.
The voice capabilities are 3x better.
Software is 3x better.
It has a neat task list unlike android.
Android is going to have to bring the pain in software. It can when with a notification bar forever.
Also they stole the deep twitter integration from windows phone 7.
The cloud is already a part of android but can use a lot of work.
I think they are holding the iphone5 out until they get LTE and real 4g.

lol, how funny the uninformed are.
Apple's bread and butter is their music interface, so it'd be a bit embarassing if this wasn't the case.
That remains to be seen. MPs are not everything and the SGS2 has an awesome camera. If the Prime has the rumored lens, nothing before it will be able to come close to it.
Siri is a Beta.
Task list? Like an app list? That is iOS in it's entirety.
iOS 5 was a catch up update. It revamped and added things that other OS's had for ages, and did almost nothing else.
