More RAM does use slightly more battery. You being a self titled expert in the field would know the workings of various RAM types, such as DRAM and SRAM right? Errrrrrrr no, clearly you know absolutely nothing. DRAM actually requires a fairly small amount of power in general and an increase in RAM would make a very insignificant change. Further to your Apple loaded clairvoyant space brain that immediately gives you more knowledge on every subject than anyone else, you of course would realize that one of the biggest battery drainers is the screen, and by that, not just the size, but the pixel density and resolution. Seeing as Apple have just upped their resolution quite a lot, (despite there being no visible change to 99.999999% of the population), there will be a much greater drain on battery from that end of the device. Seeing as I feel like I'm the only one who can be objective on this subject, and not turn into an Android fanboy, I'd like to point out that a device should suit the user based on personal preference and not some quest for social status like this knob cheese Doctor Thomas Cockend seems to suggest. If I was you, I would consider various devices. Small Android devices, midrange Android devices, larger Android devices and the iPhone. Personally, I prefer Android devices since switching my allegiance from Symbian, but that doesn't mean I don't respect iPhone.
As for some of the other dog shit that people are posting, I think you muppets should go and do a bit more research before you...
a) Trust benchmark results.
b) Trust numbers (errr, im stupid bigger means better YAAAAAAAAY).
c) Trust journalists.
Agreed that ios5 do not need that much ram to work..but it could do better with more. especially with a bigger camera, and save ios developers headaches of handling low memory issues.
Generally i am not impress with this phone. only impress of ios5.
i have 4s & s2, but i like s2 more, s2 make my eyes feels better, i won't get tired.
It has been more than 1 year since 1've had both android phones and iphone. Comparing email downloading in both OS. Iphone/Ipad email downloading is faster compared to android phones. Quite surprising, iphone with lower ram can download email faster.
Unfortunately, I can't use the iphone due to it smaller size and limited video format. Actually I prefer a phone with full PC functionality. Windows 7, Windows XP phone should be good.

Anonymous, 19 Oct 2011How does Iphone with only 512 MB of Ram and 1GHz CPU will outperform SGS2 with 1GB RAM and 1.5... morei have used both and apple isn't kidding with their claims. I own a Galaxy S2, and i used my friends' iPhone 4. the i phone is way better. i don't know how or why, it just is. Use it, u'll see the difference yourself.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2011have been playing with Siri for 2hours, search for location and businesses doesn't work in Aus... morei have had n8 and sold it 2 weeks ago mostly because of poor image quality for a 12mp compared to my previous phone Sony Ericsson c905 in terms of clarity and quality of the image when zoomed in. Iphone 4s can't be worse than n8.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2011Microphone stopped working after one day! Urr! Cant even place calls on speakerphone? Just happened after one day and you would rather post here first before even sending back to shop? Sound fishy to you? It does to me. Apple would replace your phone if there was a hardware defect, as do other companies. And if you really don't like it, you can get your money back.
Lol seriously, its like a bunch of babies in here. Don't you know your consumer rights?
its ram 512..... Sheet. Sgs2 is 1gb. But sgs2 boddy is plastic and have some problem. Again iphone 4s is very costly.... So i hope iphone 4 is the best....

Anonymous, 19 Oct 2011How does Iphone with only 512 MB of Ram and 1GHz CPU will outperform SGS2 with 1GB RAM and 1.5... moreThe same way Intel chips have the same clockspeed, yet are faster than previous generation chips. lol basic CPU knowledge. The only way to compare is by using benchmarks.
The iPhone 4S is one of the fastest smartphones on the market currently, but when combined with iOS, it is just unbelievable.
More and more people are finding this out, as this tech journalist who is an Android owner writes:

Where in the world is that?

At this times where digital technology is so advanced, graphs could easily be altered that will make your favored device looks faster. Seriously speaking, those specs really matters.
Iphone 4S VS. Samsung Galaxy S2 drop test. Click or copy/paste the link and see for yourself:
It is hard to tell that you can never ever drop your phone during your period of ownership. No matter how careful you are, phones still suffer an average of about 2 to 3 drops in one year. So better yet, choose a phone equipped with a shatterproof scratch resistant glass.

Voice command at androids work totally different than the Ios . It is totally waste to compare two different thing ....Lets compare swype with regular touch screen typing on ios does it make sense ?

as always i used say since im using both platform. Android has no quality compare to ios,its a waste..!
