If that's true, that's great! But I haven't seen anything that suggest that's no longer the case.

I think the new iphone will probably feature a larger screen (3.7-4) the A5 dual-core chipset, 8-megapixel camera, and it will be a global phone. Possibility's are being thinner, having more RAM, and possibly LTE(probably not though)

As an iPhone 4 owner, I am inclined to (possibly) agree that the Galaxy S II is better than the iPhone 4. I can't say for fact, since I have not had the Galaxy S II in my hot little hand. However, the Galaxy S II is currently the only Android phone making me think twice about staying with Apple forever.

Saying that the Galaxy S II is better than iPhone 5 and 6 is just a silly fandroid comment with no basis. I'm excited about the 5 and 6 and what they will bring. I'm also excited about the Galaxy S III (or whatever it'll be called).

There don't have to be sides...Can't we all just love technology, in general?

What I struggle seeing is what sets the Galaxy s II from all the other Android devices. Android phones are basically just a blur in my head.

My quick list of Galaxy S II likes:
- TouchWiz 4.0 makes it simple to add widgets to the homescreen (if you're into that).
- NFC - I think this will be a great feature standard on all phones (Google wallet, exchange info with vendor, dinner reservations, etc.)
- 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus screen, bright rich colors
- 1080p video and good quality 8MP stills
- Very thin phone
- MHL port - single port for USB/HDMI
- DLNA support for compatible devices
- Very snappy 1.2GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB memory
- 16GB and 32GB internal flash memory (upgradeable with microSD of course)
- Very good battery management to easily last a day (possibly two)
- No gimmicks, just a beautiful, powerful "future-proof" device

Btw. Android's market share declined for the first time. Reason is, Verizon's adoptation of the iphone4. Analysts claim that android's market will continue to decline when the ip5 comes out. More android users on Verizon will be switching. The ip5 will be available to a couple more carriers as well, which will cause more android users to switch to the iphone :)

You mean this?:

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Android-lost-market -share-in-the-U.S.-last-month-according-to-Nielsen s-smartphone-survey_id19193

In case you didnt read it or dont plan to let me help you:

"The latest Nielsen survey on U.S. smartphone use is in and the Android OS slipped 1 percentage point to a 36% share since March. That is the first drop in Android's slice of the smartphone pie in recent memory."

Now pay attention....

"The Apple iPhone was unable to take advantage of Android's drop as that device also lost 1 point and weighed in with a 26% share of the U.S. smartphone market. BlackBerry reversed recent trends and tacked on 1 point to hold a 23% stake in the U.S."

You talking about this, right?

Nope. I am talking about this :)

http://www.bgr.com/2011/06/21/android-u-s-market-s hare-slides-in-march-quarter-as-iphone-gains/

"Android’s share slid from 52.4% to 49.5% in the first quarter, its first sequential market share loss in any region since the second quarter of 2009. Wolf attributes the dip to the launch of Verizon Wireless’ iPhone 4; Apple’s U.S. market share ballooned more than 12 points to 29.5% in the first quarter."

Why are you so anxious to see Android decline? You are taking Android's success way too personally.

Whats funny...articles about Android losing market share has popped again recently...but NO analyst or pro Apple, iPhone folks are mentioning the decline the iPhone had too.

I wonder why......

Or maybe the sales have dropped because its an old phone still overpriced and having inherent faults,and an os which hasn't changed in 4 years due to fanboys believing apples hype that it changes everything again again again including their nappies

Ummmm, it's android's market share that's declining, not the iphone's, lol. The iphone's market share is growing ;)
