3.5 Inches screen and 512 mb of ram??? even if gets more score at benches than GSII when you dont have enough screen to browse and enough ram to run applications smoother i dont see the reason why the fuss! Dont forget that GS2 is much lighter with bigger screen so that you can even enjoy games more. Faster GPU with smaller screen? no use here either? not to mention about the customisation android OS offers . Wait and see the next few models samsung has to offer . This whole fuss will stop in no time

If all is working smoothly and without a hitch, it would not matter if the processor was single core, dual or even quad. It would not matter if it had 512MB, 1GB, or 2GB RAM.

Audi engineers are now working hard to reduce engine sizes across all its cars. Their 4 cylinder cars are producing performance equivalent to 6 cylinder cars in the same class. This is the same philosophy, where the engineers have their focus on the performance and efficiency.

So what if the ram is 512? Didnt argue on theoretical numbers, Go for real time performance,and Iphone still the way faster and smoother then any other 1Gb ram phone.

I wanted to pre-order one in the first 24 hours but my perants did not want to buy it over the Internet because they said it was not safe to buy over the Internet so they want to wait on till it was released and buy it from the store.

P.S
I want the iPhone 4s 64gb white, it does not matter what carrier
I am 14 years old

What is the point of putting Dual CORE proc. if you can only have so much apps processing at the same time and then you will get bottleneck? Especially when you can play some heavy games and open some other heavy apps, if you open bunch of them, it will freeze because of lack of RAM. I will wait for new iphone that has at least 1GB of RAM same as SGS II or Nokia N9! This one just waste of money to be honest with you. I have iphone 4, I had iphone 3GS, iphone 3, and will not go for this one for sure.

Mac os Lion has been run on an Atom proccessor is such a lightweight O/S so 512MB of ram on the iphone 4s equates to about 4GB of RAM on an sgs2.Cant comment on Meego yet altho its a powerfull computing platform.

Why there is no RAM in specifications? Is it because there are only 512MB and they are ashamed to show it? For me it is a deal braker! What is apple think? They probably laughing on the way to the banks!!! I am getting Nokia N9 at least it has true multitasking and 1GM RAM. Thank you very much!!!

> In reply to Duel @ 2011-10-10 15:42 from p77p - click to readWhat do you expect??? 4S has much more powerful NEWER Dual GPU Graphics PowerVR SGX543MP2. Where are you coming from. Samsung Galaxy SII has single core GPU ARM Mali-400MP GPU. The Samsung has a Exynos 4210 SoC, which contains a 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 dual-core which in terms of raw processing power is ahead of the 4S has a A5 SoC consists of a Cortex-A9 dual core 1GHz...

You That score is mighty impressive for GSII. If GSII had the same GPU as the 4S it would trump the 4S. Besides the nexus prime is coming soon with an already better exinos chipset over Apples A5 & it will have the better dual GPU over the 4S, plus it will have the larger SUPER AMOLED PLUS 1280x720P pixels. I am telling you that you were not being very fair with the benchmark results in your stupid statistical analysis is not helping to explain the REASON to both Android user or Apple Users. Therefore I reason as you being an APPLE BIASED fanboy.

Apparently apple talks raw performance over android fans specs sheets. Well err, no apple users find out the real truth why. Only because it has a better GPU. Come on, this is ignorant insult & completely unfair comparison - the two technologies. It should not have been done. I am outraged by you doing this. lol

Seriously.

I have always been an iPhone lover and have in thenpast bought all the iPhones when they came out till the iPhone 4s. I also admit that some of the things iPhone lacked were standard on a lot of other phones. To me the iPhone 4s is a no go for several reasons but the main one is the screen size which I was hoping it would be larger and the choice of amazing phones out there now. I have also bought quite a lot of HTC phones in the past and got bored cause of thenamount of htc phones that were released all being the same. I finally went and got the htc sensation xe and I have to saynit has everything I am looking for in a phone which I believe truly surpasses the new iPhone 4s
