Default Which is better: Samsung Galaxy S2 or Iphone 4s?

Don't know if this question has been asked round here,
and I was in the business of lookin for a new phone awhile ago
to replace my SE W580i. So thought this could help people
decide which of these phones to get, in case they are looking
for a new phone themselves....

Lets try to make fair comparisons here,
and state your point of views and experiences as to why
you think one phone is better suited than the other.
As most people (not all), cannot afford more than one smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S2 (includes Skyrocket) vs. Iphone 4s
Samsung vs Apple
Android vs iOS.

Which is better in your opinion?

*Wish there was an option to include a poll in this thread

its all about preference really. The SG s2 is an AWESONE phone. I suggest you get anything other than an IPHONE unless your getting it CHEAP. The new iphone will be out sometime this year.

I have the S2 and it is awesome. Iphone is just a fad. Just like Monster Beats...tons of other headphones that are cheaper and way better. Its a fashion thing. The ones who actually go into detail on the specs know that the majority of android phones are superior to any iphone out there. Also no 4g on the iphones.

Fashion thing or not, you have to love the iphone's long battery life. The thing runs at least double over most other phones.

Default i got the refurbished galaxy s2 for $10.50 !!!

@ att's website - i bought a refurbished galaxy s2 for $10.50 !!!

Samsung Note releasing end of February on AT&T. 5.3" screen and 2,500 mAh battery. iPhone 4S and GS2 will bow in shame once again.

Have inquired about updating the 2.3.5 Gingerbread android version
on a Galaxy S2 to Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS),
only thing is, it's very tricky, and am not entirely sure if it's already
actually released and allowable by Samsung to do so on the S2.
Heard alot of bricking stories by owners who tried to update to ICS.

But having said that, ICS is by far the best Android platform on the market.

@ unkown5454: Indeed. But hasn't it already been released some time ago? The Samsung Galaxy Note N700? Or are you talking about another model that is coming out, I haven't been aware of yet?
The Galaxy Note is an awe-inspiring device. A hybrid (Phone + Tablet = Phoblet). But really really expensive though....

Look at my flag...not your side of the pond. Sure, I can buy it unlocked and ship it to my country, but I am talking about a carrier branded device. Also, the Samsung Note available now does not have LTE frequencies and the USA release will.

The price of the phone should have no impact on what phone you buy. The contract is where you should place your focus. Similar to printers/ink.

@ Unkown5454: I am aware of your flag, which my flag is a part of (former US Trust Territory, which is still governed and run by the USA in some way, much like Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam...), but that's irrelevant. Sure the branded version (AT&T) will come out this February; although it already has trumped both phones in the global market place; and probably be at a much cheaper price than it's unlocked $699 counterpart. There is an LTE version of the S2; Skyrocket released last November/December I believe, which is the phone I had decided to get.

@ AmazonStealth: Yeah, but for some places, like where I am from. There aren't any contracts on phones. We use GSM Sim cards and buy prepaid load cards. I wish we had the option to get contracts on phones with carriers, helps save on new phones.

Well the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core chip is beginning to make its rounds. HTC and Sammy already have the devices coming very soon ...I am patiently waiting!

Qualcomm is making some ripples with the Snapdragon S4 quad core, but not ready for commercial production.

Battery life depends on lots of major factors. How much use of the battery on any giving day and the condition of the battery. Also on the technology of the battery. Some batteries use a more advanced chemical formula to give better energy storage.

But it has been proving many times on many battery benchmark tests that Iphones beat almost all other smartphones. And no I am not a Apple fanboy, their too expensive for my taste.

Iphone all day .....LOL @ iphone is a fad..... Iphone has more & better apps ......

unlike Android apps that always crash and behave weird most apps on Android need a google account and sim card.......

iphone doesn't need a google account and you take out your sim card and all the apps work on wifi

IMO iphone all day........
