Phonearena is getting annoying with all this Iphone crap. How many articles are they gonna post? What about combining all the crap articles and making a big one? P.S there is no need to compare, from the moment it was announced you already new that the sgsII and bionic had this tiny phone beat. c'mon man

So that is why Apple refused to give an iPhone 4S sample to Samsung...they were ashamed...

What a disappointment !!... iphone4s A dual-core? And only 1Ghz! How many months has the android dual-cores on the market? ... And even better and faster than this? (like good "old" galaxy S2) Only this? ... Same design, same screen ... disappointment ... after all who innovates? Android seems to be, with decent sized HD screens, better dual-cores, tons of continuous innovation...better wait for the Nexus Prime or Galaxy S3! Android rules!

Taco: I respect you for having the guts to post here in light of all that has transpired today. However, I cannot agree with your assesment. The 4s is a huge let down. The SGII and Droid Bionic have this offering beaten from the very start. it is so ironic that for the past couple of weeks you have been proclaming along with The Miz that the Iphone 5 was going to sipe the floor with Andriod. It seems that will not be the case and as a former Iphone users who was counting on something more innovating then this from Apple I have to give the battle to Android. I will now be awaiting to see What Google and Samsung will announce next week and as far as I am concerned I belive the Nexsus prime will wipe the floor with the 4s . The fact are there ther is no denying the 4s will be a mid range phone by December.

Honestly android fanboys please tell me what is the difference that makes those phones better. BTW I have the att gsII and I assure you, its nothing but a smaller infuse with slightly better specs. What I'm saying is, all I hear is screen size. For instance we bought the gsII with its crazy specs but in a month it'll be outdated. Yet y'all call them isheep but iPhone fans aren't the ones constantly waiting the next 2 weeks for the next phone with a faster core and a 5 inch screen. I said it before and I'll say it again. Buy the phone that makes u happy because Google like apple could care less about any of us.

well folks. This can't compete against the beast (gs2). All i want to see is the 10 out of 10 score phonearena is going to give it

Yeah, well why are ppl already talking about the Note, Nexus Prime, Holiday, etc. Like I said, Android makers outdate their own phones. Samsung will release another phone with 1.5 gb of ram, 1.5 dual core processor, 5.5 inch screen and no 1 will be talking about the gsII anymore.

all phones will be outdated every 6 months, that is the nature of technology, tre. the iphone is starting at the BACK of the pack, instead of the front of the pack where it normally tries to place itself. Thats what everyone is laughing at. You talk about how the SGS2 will be outdated shortly. Well the SGS2 is a way more powerful device than the iphone4s, so what does that say? Its also cheaper, comes with more features, bigger screens, ect. So its a much much better deal. The i4s placed itself into stupidity. If they launched this phone at say 100-150 for the 32gig model, there wouldnt be as much laughter. Apple really thinks too much of themselves and too little of their customers to think they can just peddle whatever they want at insaine prices.

Okay let us hope that the overall feature of the upcoming Nexus Prime will become a more epic failure (as if that would happen) so that the Three iMusketeers can have their sweet revenge (dream dream dream all i have to is dream. . .)

Galaxy SII BLOWS the Ip4S with specs

Phone arena guys, There is a typo error about the weight of Galaxy S-II in article above. 116 grams = 4.1 oz not 4.9 oz

Obviously Apple is behind Android. They had no idea what to do without copying Android. However, apple still looks better and feels better in the hand; that´s about its only plus.

first notice how they stuck the old iphone between the other two to compare. they dont tell you the actual mAh of the battery and they tried to make you feel better with no 4g by saying 14.4 Mbps but fail to give the 5 Mbps upload. Apple is sidestepping the truth yet again. HUGE FAILURE APPLE........HUGE

I'm disappointed with Apple. I resolution thought they were going to bring something that made me regret my SGSII choice. Guess I should be thanking apple, I can now sleep well at night knowing I definitely made the right decision.

lol seeing all these hateful comments are funny...Im sure the iphone 4s when its officially out will beat all android phones in every real testing. When the iphone 4 first came out there were a bunch of haters like now, until real tests shut them up. Specs dont mean everything, have you compared a macbook pro to another laptop that has little higher specs? guess which one was faster/ better....the pro

Now come on truth181 that's just blind hate against android. There is no phone out that even comes close to the Galaxy S II's performance and specs it's so fast that even phonearena said that they couldn't make it lag at all. And the iphone 4 at the time had some of the best hardware out last year however, this year their hardware is at par and in some instances sub par to what is currently out there (ex. no NFC chip and can't get full hspa+, only gets 14.4mbps) So it's a good high end device but face it hardware/spec wise android has finally caught up and makes just as good devices.
