I dont know why people keep saying a GSII has much better specs then it is much better overall and much faster.

The difference is the OS people. Samsung uses Android which is resource heavy and ill-optimized. The iOS used in iPhone is very well optimized and doesn't require a powerful hardware to run. iOS 5 runs smooth even on the old iPhone 3GS. What does it have? A mere 600 MHz processor, 256 mb RAM, thats nothing! But see how fast and smooth iOS 4 or iOS 5 runs on that. That should explain the thing in all. Compare it to Android 2.3. It can never run smoothly on a 600 MHz processor with 256 mb RAM.

Better specs dont always mean better performance. Its the OS which utilizes the same specs more efficiently that makes a difference.

And Apple, seriously, the iPhone 4S is excellent, but the screen? All we wanted was atleast 3.7 inches! And about the price, I need not say anything else...

would happily trade my sgs2 for this but wont because of screen size it should have came with at least a 4 inch screen it would have at least stood out from the iphone 4 a lil bit better

Great Apple! I'm hoping not to change the design because that is the perfect design i ever seen and Samsung trying to copy as much as they can (shameless). I will be going to buy this phone as it is better than other phone. Of course there are no 4G all around the world we don't need 4g. Photo from iPhone is perfect, i don't care how many pixel but i can give the best image.

I phone 5 was supposed to have a a-5 chip inside the phone and far better graphics.this is all i phone-5 was supposed to get with full hd capability. but i think people here are going only with the name of the phone.

are you all so blind this is not supposed to be whole new product this is just the better version of the worlds best phone at the moment it not might have all the fancy specs that htc and samsung have but both companies know that its the one there both trying to beat. the iphone 4 was already better in terms of design and usabilty this has just made it even more future proof. apple dnt have to play catch up they set the trend and everyone else follows. apple might not have all the high end specs but there devices work so well together that it creates a much greater experience all round.this is the iphone 4s not the iphone 5!!! when the 5 lands thats when something special will happen with the mobile world. again.

and for the record i dont own an iphone 4, i own the smasung sgs2 and wish samsung would focus all there energy on making 1 perfect phone rather than mass producing loads of low end and shitty phones aswell.
