You have to love the iPhone fanboys. They never realise that Apple buy samsungs hand-me-downs. The iPhone 5 has the exact (EXACT) insides as the 2 year old s2. Android is easier, more reliable, customisable, and generally better. You have more choice with android, not just the same phone as everyone else. Iphones are like ferraris. For people who have no imagination. Look at all the android vs iPhone comparisons and you'll find android wins more than not. Just like above. S2 lte hd is better than iPhone 4s. And the 5!
One and only single phone per two-three years, and half the world owns it, isn't that the only reason, iPhone is the best phone ever and will lead market ever. Many other manufacturer produces couple of models in every three months and where they are up to in global market ? Nobody even close to iPhone quality and ease of use, even they have more resources. I have used lot of devices since 1997, but using iPhone, a great experience. <a href="http://movaluate.com">Find Your Smartphone's current market price</a>
I would highly recommend the Smasung Galaxy over the Iphone myself. It's a much faster phone, with nice features like... Flash player. If you are away from home long periods at a time and there is no where to charge your phone... Like say the woods where you might as well not have a phone anyways, then the battery life issue will be come a problem, though all things aside they are very close. I just don't like Apple or their products.
Article is *extremely* biased.  The author weighs things like processing power as far more important than battery life.  Also, saying the Samsung comes out slightly ahead in network communications because it supports NFC when it's actual download upload speed is only half the speed of an iPhone is ludicrous.  Please pull your iPhone hating head out of your butt.  Thank you.
iphone is much better than anything samsung can produce phone-wise
El samsung Galaxy S II LTE, se lleva en banda al Iphone 4S. Samsung ha mejorado aún más su producto estrella, y ya el Samsung Galaxy S II, versión original, superaba al Iphone 4S. Simplemente, no hay punto de comparación enfrentándolo al Iphone. Creo que sería más equilibrado enfrentarlo con modelos de HTC o los nuevos de LG, puesto que el Iphone ya no es un rival a la altura del Samsung Galaxy II LTE.
