SAMSUNG GALAXY S2 VS IPHONE 4: SIZE AND WEIGHT
The Galaxy S2 measures 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.49mm and weighs in at 117g, while the iPhone 4 measures 115.2 x 58.7 x 9.3mm and weighs in at 137g. Samsung claims the Galaxy S2 would be the world’s thinnest smartphone at just 8.49mm and the feather light 117g as well. But, the iPhone 4 is a bit better than the Galaxy S2 in width and height.
The Galaxy S2 has a 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 800×480 pixels, while the iPhone 4 sports a 3.5-inch Retina display with 960×640 pixels. We see that it’s true the Super AMOLED Plus is one step better than the older Super AMOLED, but when people take a look at the pixels size only, the iPhone 4 is still the better one. The Galaxy S2′s display would still steal your heart with its large screen, anyway. Moreover, the new display of the Galaxy S2 offers a better contrast, better outdoor visibility and lower power consumption than iPhone 4.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 uses dual core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A9 Processor with Samsung Orion Chipset and 1 GB RAM, and the iPhone 4 comes with Apple A4 and 512MB RAM. This is what the Galaxy S2 wins over the iPhone 4, even though there’s no clear proof to show what’s going on graphically with the double RAM. For sure, the CPU built within the phone is a super fast processor that is able to run multitasking.
The Galaxy S2 has an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, along with the 1080p video capture. The iPhone 4 is a bit lower at this point, offering a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera, with 720p video capture. Do you still need another bullet to hit the iPhone 4? It’s all obvious that there’s an unbalance battle here. And, that’s not enough! The Galaxy S 2 also includes plenty of great technology such as Smile Shot, Beauty Shot, Panorama Shot, Action Shot and Cartoon Short too.
There’s 16/32GB storage offered by the Galaxy S2, and its sports a microSD too, while the iPhone 4 only comes with 16/32GB storage without microSD. The microSD you can get on the Galaxy S2 can be mentioned as a big plus to hit the iPhone 4. Effectively, you can store twice as much on it, and thus all your 1080p videos and 8-MP camera would fix it best.
The Galaxy S2 offers WiFi, NFC, 4G, Bluetooth 3.0, DLNA, WiFi tethering, and new HDMI technology, while the iPhone 4 only gives users WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 and 3G network. Again, this is what to beat the iPhone 4. The 4G network, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC technology are the form of the latest connectivity features should be installed to a new top smartphone.
The Galaxy S2 uses 1650 mAh battery type, and the iPhone 4 has 1420 mAh battery with 10 hours of video watching. The Galaxy S2′s battery is definitely bigger than that the iPhone 4, and it sounds natural because the dual core CPU would use lots of energy, while the large screen do the same.
The Galaxy S2 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, while the iPhone 4 uses iOS 4.2. You can customize the Android OS, and you can’t do it with the iOS. You can get full Flash-enabled web browsing on Android, and the iPhone 4 shows the edge when it comes to applications. In short, the iPhone 4 is still the better one while both offer multitasking. The Game Center on iOS even gives special advantage compared to what Google has to date.
The iPhone 4 is still the most expensive phone, more than anyone else, while the Galaxy S2 offers a lesser price tag than the iPhone 4. Of course, it is the biggest advantage people would find on the Galaxy S2. With those incredible features and facilities, the Galaxy S2 would find its own easy to win the market’s heart then.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S2 VS IPHONE 4: CONCLUSION
Is there still anything to say? Are there still more words to comment? The Galaxy S2 is an absolute king of the smartphone of today’s market. It is a really impressive to proud of, let alone the capabilities of the phone even beat the iPhone 4 mercilessly.
