The more ram you have, the more applications you can have running in the same time without experiencing any lag on your phone.

ROM, on the other hand, stands for Read Only Memory, and is a type of memory that you can't access and is used in the factory to store your OS. 512MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM are two different memories. You should only take into consideration, most of the time, the amount of RAM you have which is 512MB in your case.

Hope this helps!

The only thing on the Iconia better is the 4.8inch screen with 1024x480 resolution and that it has two speakers.
Galaxy has faster cpu and dual core, much more powerful gpu, super amoled plus, 8.49mm compared to 13.6mm, 1080p over 720p more battery, more wifi channels, gorrila glass, more memory, more ram, and so on and on and on.

> In reply to Russel @ 2011-04-18 10:08 from PTic - click to readIf you take a look at the comparison between the new Samsug Galaxy S2 and Acer Iconia Smart, the only "better specs" I can see that the Acer has got over the Samsung is the larger screen size and resolution. Imo, a 4.7inch screen which makes the phone a total of 142mm long is too much for a phone to hold it comfortably in ur palm.

On the other hand the Samsung has got better internal memory (16/32GB compared with 8GB), better RAM (1GB compared with 512MB), much better CPU (1.2GHZ DUAL CORE compared with 1GHZ Scorpion SINGLE CORE), better video capture (1080p vs 720p), much better display (Super AMOLED Plus compared with TFT) and a larger battery (1650mAh compared with 1500mAh). Furthermore the Samsung has got NFC and a Gorilla Glass display.

However if I were you, I would wait for both phones to be released since both of them are going to released sometime in April/ May and then compare them. However I should add that if both phones cost the same amount of money, I would go for the Samsung Galaxy S2 without any doubt, but that's just me =)

> In reply to Russel @ 2011-04-18 10:08 from PTic - click to readSamsung Galaxy SII is the better smartphone of the two. First of all the Acer iconia smart is bigger and thicker. I don t see myself carrying a phone of 141mm long, but that's just me. Further more imo, the 4.3inch screen size of samsung is the perfect size. 4.7 inch of the acer is enormously large. Other than the screen size and of course the resolution, the Samsung Galaxy S2 has better specs.

The Samsung has got more internal memory (16/32GB compared with 8GB), more ram (1GB compared with 512mb), much better cpu (1.2GHZ DUAL CORE compared with 1GHZ Scorpion SINGLE CORE), better video capture (1080p compared with 720p) and most important of all better display (Super AMOLED plus compared with TFT)

Apart from the larger screen size which I don't really like cause imo 4.7 is too big for a phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 is without any doubt the better phone. However since both are going to be released in April/May,I suggest you wait a bit for both of them to get released and compare them then =)

But these 2 phones costs around 40k and acer costs around 45K.So have to be little careful,inorder not waste the money.I opt for Acer iconia smart.But before that,wanna get some opinions. Both have almost similar specifications.Acer has bigger screen with Dolby speakers.I have been following Acer Iconia smart for a very long time.But suddenly i read about this Samsung Galaxy II. NOw a little confused. May be GSMARENA experts can clearly Suggest.

You just need to go into contacts and look for the particular person that you want to call... then using your finger swype from left to right and that particular contact and you are already placing a call to that person. I don't really understand how it would take someone half an hour to look for a contact!!!

To remedy this, if you want to ask a question between two phones, please make the question more relevant, and include a bit more detail. Otherwise, go to the specs page, and just do a comparison yourself.

I can say that honestly because if you understood that then you wouldn't be posting stuff like that here. That is o though. They are not for everyone, but think things trough before you decide how or why you think something, and definitely before speaking and posting. :)

As me and many others have stated forever, the iphone was not the simple design br touch phone, other simple design bar phones are not copies based on the sole factor that they are just that and as we know it Samsung are the ones hard at work mass producing oleds and improving it and thy are in so high dend from them that they cant even provide enough to all their units let alone other companies.

Ones the where obviously big as they were obvious so let's wait until the release to see what's really going on. By that I mean that I think even without the .2GHZ increase that if not limited the Exynos is more powerful.
