Apple iPhone 4S vs Motorola DROID BIONIC vs Samsung Galaxy S II T-Mobile

Interface and Functionality:

Fortunately, all three devices are at the cutting edge of technology thanks to the speedy dual-core processors running inside of them. Without a doubt though, the iPhone 4S provides us with the most responsive performance – albeit, it’s not as tested as the Android devices with its simplistic platform experience. On the other hand, the two Android powered smartphones are undoubtedly fast with their executions too, especially when some of the more graphically intensive live wallpapers out there test them. In any event, they’re all very peppy with their movement and barely exhibit bouts of lag or slowdown.

In the never-ending quest of finding out which platform experience is valued the most, it’s always going to come down to what is most important to you – since each one has their own unique characteristics. Clearly, the beauty about the iOS 5 experience found on the iPhone 4S is the fact that it’s simplistic, uncomplicated, and absolutely responsive. For all of its finesse, there’s no running away from its extremely limited personalization. Conversely, that’s not much of a problem with the Android smartphones seeing they offer plenty of it with their live wallpapers and useful widgets. Between the TouchWiz UI on the Samsung Galaxy S II and the customized MOTOBLUR experience of the Motorola DROID BIONIC, we’re digging the polished look of Motorola’s offering – mainly because of its eye-catching presentation.

When it comes to typing up messages, all three smartphones offer a wonderful and hassle-free experience with their wickedly responsive keyboards. However, considering that Samsung Galaxy S II has the largest display, its on-screen keyboard is more spacious with its layout – thus, reducing any mistakes as we type. Nevertheless, they’re all more than usable in typing up long passages of text.

Even though the iPhone 4S continues to excel in offering us a sensual web browsing experience, which has been a staple since the first iPhone, both the Samsung Galaxy S II and Motorola DROID BIONIC are able to exhibit a similar joyful experience.

Unlike the world phone capabilities of the iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S II, the Motorola DROID BIONIC is only limited to domestic usage. However, what separates it apart from the rest is that it’s equipped with 4G LTE connectivity to literally knock the socks off its competitors in the data speed department. If web browsing and data speeds are most important on your list, you won’t be disappointed by the lightning fast speeds being pumped out by the DROID BIONIC – it’s significantly faster in every way.
