S2 vs the iPhone
A month ago I was stuck with a choice, something that a few years ago I would make in a jiffy. I needed to change my cellphone, I was previously using an iPhone and I needed to change it because as we know most apple handheld devices do not work more than 1 year if used extensively.
So I faced a choice which way to go? I had a few options iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S2/Note, Blackberry Torch, Bold 4, and some HTC ones. I really did not consider the BB and the HTC well since they are HTC and shitberry.
I was in a dilemma, at once ... the Samsung S2 was a great choice, better processor than the iPhone, a sort of free OS and way way way cheaper than the 4S.
One fine day, I made my choice and got an Samsung Galaxy S2. After using it for over a month, here goes the much awaited review.
So to speak the iPhone 4S looks almost the same as the iPhone 4 except a few minor changes on the antenna locations it looks identical, which to me is pretty bad, but looking at the history with apple they do tend to do that. While the looks on the iPhone 4S are good, the S2 steals the show with its bright and big display. S2 feels much slimmer and lighter on the hand, the iPhone feels heavier when you put a simple silicone cover on it, while the S2 feels just great.
While the iPhone uses the much acclaimed iOS 5 and with the addition of Siri which annoyingly only responds if you can and will put on an accent, the Samsung uses the android. The iPhone OS is simply unmatchable for the ease of use. When it says plug and play it actually means plug and play with something else other than your computer and your phone because the OS will take care of everything for you, while the andriod can do that but when it says plus and play, it means plug me play with your computer with what you want inside me and out of me and manage all that and click on sync and then play... so one extra step here for the andriod, but it gives you a lot more freedom such as the bluetooth exchange, loading of third party apps, watch .avi files and etc. Basiclly things you cannot do on your iphone. So if you dont get bored of converting videos in iPhone friendly format, you are all set.
One more important part is the keypad... one thing for sure, the Samsung Swype is simple unbeatable absolutely loved it, the iPhone keypad being good as it is cannot beat the comfort of the swype.
One word for both, CRAP....either wont last as long as you want it.
The final choice:
I think it comes down to what you want, both phones are excellent in where they stand, I think you just have to make up you mind on what you want....
I took the S2, simply because i wanted something new.
