  • LhTI iPhone 4S beats hell out of galaxy s2 in browser test (updated test without flash) 1,5ghz galaxy is little bit slower but normal galaxy s2 performs very badly, it looks very slow :)

All i need to say is this:

Kinda funny that all of the Apple boys are believing higher FPS is better lol.

Because in this case it's not.

What makes the difference at all really is the pixels. I think the size only makes a fractions difference. And yes the Gs2 is nearly perfect

No flash content,No radio, 3.5" screen how can you even compare this thing with SgsII.It does so well on the browser mark because it doesn't have to render flash

There's plenty of sample photos now in internet and i have to say 4S have very good camera, Sony and Apple did a great job!!! Very sharp natural looking photos. Not candy colours like iPhone 4.

Screen is still too small so I don't care about those specs. Only thing I like is the camera though

Other than that, of course, we can wait, more and more benchmarks will come eventually. I am sure that there are pros and cons to the iPhone 4S. In general however, it does look to be an impressive upgrade to the iPhone 4.

Important to note though, even if iPhone 4S broke every speed record, suddenly included Flash, helped to bathe you in the morning, developed Bluetooth file transfer, made breakfast and even tucked you into bed at night, there will still be some who can find a bad thing to say about it.

What is important is that you buy a gadget that suits you, and your needs. this may be Apple, Android, WP7, whatever. Make it your choice, not someone elses.

I'm no fan of Apple but for once I have to say I am impressed with this phone's hardward.

HOWEVER... these results seem almost too good to be true. How can we be sure these screenshots are genuine and not just made up?

@Anonymous: You don't believe me. Fine. Go try it on a friend's Galaxy S II with Dolphin browser. I'm sure it'll be at least as fast as the iPhone 4s.

At the end of the day these javascript benchmarks don't show that much. Surprised at the number of people saying that iPhone 4s is faster than all Androids based on JUST these benchmarks.

Omg! I wonder how Gsmarena tested SGS2 benchmark. I manage to get 87k-90k in browsermark,2k-2.2k in sunspider with a lousy 3g network.

You guys do know the source is Anandtech right? They are very unbiased, and are very critical of Apple even, when necessary. I would rather put my belief with them and their testing methods, rather than some strangers on comment sections.
