According to these benchs, even the Iphone 4 is faster than SGS2 in some tests.
Off course, many people who has tried both devices knows for sure that the SGS2 does offer a better/faster overall experience.
For me, I have some points when evauating my device of choice.
Screen size, screen resolution, very customizable OS and good overall performance.
The pair SGS2/Android offers it all with style.
The pair iPhone4[S]/iOS while have screen resolution and overall performance nicely done, fails in big screen and cutomizable OS (and for now there is not much to work around this).
That is why I own the Samsung flagship.

That's a freakin' 800 MHz beating a 1.2 GHz.
Alot of you "Tech-geeks" don't understand how processors work in mobile phones, and in general really.
If you have a 1ghz cpu underclocked to say 500mhz, you'll still be getting the "raw power" of say what a 1ghz cpu will be pushing out, except you will have the consistancy of not having a laggy device or "performance spikes"
So an underclocked cpu is better, less lag, less heat, less batter / power use.
Apple are doing great in that respect, you don't need a monster cpu.
yellow, 11 Oct 2011so u are saying that 1.2ghz gs2 is supposed to be slower than 1ghz iphone 4s???I am telling you that comment particularly made me laugh... Like a 0.3 Ghz increase would bring out much difference when the actual 1.2Ghz processor could not even come near to the underclocked processor of the 4S...
somebody scammed you off...
they only took 2 tests out of 8 in which iphone4s wins. but they ignore other 6, in which SGS2 is better or comparable, and ignoring the last two benchmark which measure pure graphic power..
iPhone4S 7760kVertex/s ~ 14773kShader/s
SGS2 7880kVertex/s ~ 23090kShader/s
Ok I agree may be its fast but where is the flash support where is the bluetooth to transfer. A picture from u friend mobile very simple but important things. Present in other cell phones

I love iOS but even I know that it is not for everybody. Buy what serves you best.
Mr Maz, 11 Oct 2011you've got to love the propoganda! all the tests done again slower processor phones, what's it... moreso u are saying that 1.2ghz gs2 is supposed to be slower than 1ghz iphone 4s???
you've got to love the propoganda! all the tests done again slower processor phones, what's it like against the updated 1.5ghz GSII and Sensation?
derrickrose, 11 Oct 2011you might wanna add VAT as well..True that. Was just quoting US contract free price, cos it is fully unlocked, and usable anywhere.
You're right tho, there will obviously be price variations.

OK I must admit some bad sides that I don't like about new iPhone.
1)microSIM ???? Just why???
2)No microSD slot
3)Price (849$ vs 849€)
4)I expected bigger screen. 3.7 or 3.9 inches.
5)No radio. I could live without that, but I f*cking love FM transmitter on my phone.
6)I'm not sure, but you must have iTunes to connect iPhone to PC. I don't like iTunes very much.
Wow, two videos on Siri vs Android Voice Actions!
2. Android Voice Actions
Just some light hearted jabbing guys :p
