I am not an iphone owner nor an android phone I have a nokia 6303i which is very cheap , but I don't know why many people are posting comments of hating to iphone and prefer the Galaxy S 2 . I don't understand why someone will read a complete review of 11 pages for a phone that they already know its disadvantages and they already hate and then say it is bad . If the phone was bad as you say , why do you even mind reading its review . As for me if I don't like a phone i wouldn't mind even knowing its specs . I may be not an owner of an iphone nor a galaxy S 2 , but I have seen both phones from my friends who own them and compare them in my hands for more than 2 hours . The camera on both phones have the same resolution but the iphone has better quality in overall photographing and even the front VGA camera is better than the SII 2MP camera . Battery life is great on the iphone especially when you use browsing internet and gaming alot as me . The only advantage in OS that Android has over iOS is that it makes you go deep in your phone not just a surface apps and no going deep . And in screen the ip4s has better quality screen than SGS2 , but some people say that the screen is bigger so it is better , i say no bec bigger screen means bigger sized phone which makes it difficult to handle with one hand , That what happened to me when i was trying to rotate the SGS2 without using my other hand , the phone was about to fall from my hand , luckily it didn't fall or my friend would have killed me . But i didn't have any problems handling the 4s although its back is slippery , this is due to its smaller size . In design , the iphone materials is better , but the protection is the same in the two phones , but as for me i won't pay 550 USD ( equals to the price of the phone in my country ) in a cheap looking plastic mobile phone that my cheap 6303i is better with stainless steel body . One last thing i want to say to those who say that GSMArena is biased in their reviews about iphones since the first iphone , i want them to check out the iphone 4 review where GSMArena makes fun of apple advertising when they say iphone makes video calling a reality as if there wasn't video calling before iphone 4 .
I am sorry that my comment is too long but i have read all comments on this review and i had many things in my mind to say . I am really sorry , but on the other hand this comment is better than rewriting the advantages and disadvantages of the phone and not saying any opinions or new information .
dont let anyphone take over the iphone it's the best well see i love the tuch of the iphone trey hard to solve the battery problem that i herd from many peaple keep on the road
Droid user, 23 Mar 2012this is the best phone ever made!!!!!!!!!!!

If sony n samsung are making parts for Apple, it doesnt mean that those are their technology. They are jus Labouring or producing Apple's Technology. Thats wat we call Intellectual Property and are protected by patent!!! Otherwise, sony n samsung would have copied Retina display long time ago!!! Stay quiet with ur big knowledge!!!
Wind, 15 Mar 2012You're right! For those who claim iPhone is better than Galaxy S2, for starters, check out the... moreu can used Bluetooth through apps. u can download apps for free.. u can used ur bluetooth for transfering,
GOT normal Simcard? no it is microSIM but u can used ur normal simcard if u want.. you only need to cut it! and all countries offered an iphone got microsim already. you can buy 1 for cheap price.
SDcard Slot?. 16gig is higher enough exept if you want to watch movies then go for 64gig. and other phone w/ SD card are not even included in the package u need to buy SD for it!
FLASHSUPPORT? html+5 got build in flash support some site and movie player will run smooth in iphone4&4s. even if it is not flash supported.
Transfer of file Not Using Itunes? sure u can through iCloud. u can downmload normal movies MP3's pictures etc. anything u want. you only have to do is sync it to itunes then through iCloud u can transfer it w/o a wire/cable!over price? sure it is. iPhone using tech like LCD retina of LG, board of SAMSUNG, lens of SONY, so it is expensive. atleast it was a good Quality. and they paid for the rights so it is legal.
I am confused in which is better to buy the htc one x or the one s or the sensation xe or the iphone 4s in terms of gaming and sound ?

Having owned a IPhone for the first time (iPhone 4s) makes you realise how over hyped it really is. A lack of customisation no Bluetooth file transfer etc. I had a number of problems but the guys at apple fail to recognise that there was something wrong with the thing, end of day you always get one bad apple eh! This being my third replacement after 2 yellow screens I have come to the conclusion that apple phones are a gimmick. Samsung all the way!

Although i'm not a user of both the phones by reading and seeing at wat you said i can say dat iphone is just a brand name. Thats all and nothing else!..
see dude and all apple i beileve that apple awesome and great creation company bt steve jobs said that we are not perfect and we are not only one
i thinks i phone 4s is the best phone ever made in the mobile industries is been two years thus any of the sumsung and lg the sony which are famous in making world best television bt they are not succeded to make retina display like iphone 4 and new ipad
my suggestion is to people to watch some hd movies on the retina display you will forget to watch movies on the tv or any other video playback device
okay...for all those who STUCK with sgs2 PLEASE don't fool yourselves...samsung crearly COPY and PASTE apple's ideas, inventions and technologies...galaxy was an iphone 4 CLONE and s2 iphone's 4s CLONE! when apple created the revolutionary first iphone, samsung was still playing with pixels and bada OS! apple was is and still will be the best in it's own LEADER class! i have the iphone 4s and it's the best of the best! io also had the galaxy s2 and only it's screen size was something that the 4s lacked! 4s has TREMENDOUS camera and video quality, THE BEST POSSIBLE audio reproduction, RETINA display and the fastest processor (dual core)!even the xperia s with is adreno 220 is weaker that the GPU found at the iphone! and when the iphone 5 will come up, samsung will still be lookin' for patents!
I don't know how gsmarena did make a review of siri without a video sample....are they shy,
this is the best phone ever made!!!!!!!!!!!
apple is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
iPhone 4s doesnt shoot 1080p videos??? when i see the detail of video file (shooted via 4s), it shows resolution of 568x320 and not 1920x1080. why? although hd mode is selected.
Although when i download video from gsmarena review of 4s, it also shows resolution of 854x480 and not 1080p. why? also gsmrena hasnt posted video of 4s in its video comparison section...
so some biasness is seen from gsmarena side???
can anybody help???

For those who claim iPhone is better than Galaxy S2, for starters, check out the "main disadvantages" section of both phones. Galaxy S2 has only 4 disadvantages, while iPhone 4S has 11! And for those who are too lazy to do that, ask yourselves this:
Does iPhone 4S have Bluetooth File Transfer? No it doesn't. Galaxy S2 does.
Does iPhone 4S have a normal SIM card slot? No it doesn't. Galaxy S2 does.
Does iPhone 4S have an SD card slot? No it doesn't. Galaxy S2 does.
Does iPhone 4S have Flash Player support? No it doesn't. Galaxy S2 does.
Can iPhone 4S transfer files to your computer without installing annoying programs on it? No it can't. Galaxy S2 can.
Does iPhone 4S have downloading from sites other than iTunes? No it doesn't. Galaxy S2 does.
Why can't people understand, iPhone is overpriced rubbish!
3 reasons why I hate apple's Iphone.
1. IOS 5 screwed up the easy possibility to unlock the phone and IOS 5 copied the drop down menu page off android.
2. The Iphone PHYSICAL technology is being surpassed by fellow android cellphones (face recognition, fingerprint reading, larger brilliant screen, adobe flash, and cool accessories - samsung and motorola are beating the hell out of Apple right now).
3. It cost too much for nothing, and hard time to transfer my contacts to non-iphone (had to buy google sync on itunes for that...what a shame!)
APPLE IS PLAYING CATCH UP and ANDROID LEADS!
And by the way Samsung Galaxy S2 is faster than an Iphone4S.
I am fine with my Motorola Atrix (with bluetooth keyboard, bluetooth car speaker roadster, multimedia dock with Webtop integrated in the phone). I got all accessories for cheap (a total of 100$ on craigslist). Dual Core, pretty much fast (rooted + unlocked) and deleted all unwanted softwares factory pre installed.
With Android, I feel that I am the master of my phone. (with Iphone your just another slave inside a semi-closed source)
AND STOP TALKING ABOUT PLAYING GAMES ON YOUR PHONES...its a smartphone, something to be productive with!!!! Get a XBOX or PS3 if you want to play games and eat chips at home.
