The general public has spoken as well as Wall Street today after the announcement of the not so thrilling iPhone 4S. The device is still not 4G/LTE or WiMax compatible and there are already other Android devices that have 1.2ghz and 1.5ghz dual core processors, which of course are faster than the A5 processor in the iPhone 4S.
The Samsung Galaxy S II trumps the iPhone 4G in many ways. Take screen size for instance. Screens are measured more than just diagonally. Screen size benefits scale by area (length x width) which gives the Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T 42% more screen area while the screen size on the Sprint and T-Mobile versions come in at a whopping 58% more.
The Galaxy S II is faster…
On AT&T the Samsung Galaxy S II is 50% faster with AT&T’s 21mbps HSPA+. And on T-Mobile the Samsung Galaxy S II is three times faster on T-Mobiles 42mbps HSPA+ network (the iPhone 4S is not going to T-Mobile).
The Galaxy S II is the thinnest and fastest smartphone design with the fastest network speed on each of the networks carrying the smartphone. And of course the Galaxy SII has a much more open ecosystem. Here is a comparison chart of the two devices released by Samsung this evening:
