    I've gotten into many debates so far, about this topic, and even though we've yet to see the 4S in action, I still believe the GS2 Trumps it. What do you think?

    Just got the Samsung 5 Day's ago and the large screen size means it's a keeper. I have an iPad but prefer the Android interface. Guess thats why I like this phone.

    I love Samsung and Android so no matter what the Iphone had the E4GT would be a win for me. I don't care about there specs and even if its a better phone then mine it will still loose this battle for me...

    The hardware is underwhelming but the Siri AI voice control is cool. Check out the video.

    I prefer my E4GT though. A 3.5 in display doesn't cut it with my 50 year old eyes...

    Have to agree with the previous posters about the whole 3.5" screen. Its definitely powerful on a similar level as the SGS2 line. I think Apple prefers the DPI advantage of the smaller screen and they don't want to change the resolution (requires more battery) to go up in size. All my Apple friends actually admitted this was very underwhelming from a phone upgrade. Same chassis was disappointing.

    i think the battery life on the Apple devices is usually pretty great (they under clock all of their CPUs and GPUs so that helps SIGNIFICANTLY). I think this is also why they wont up the screen and resolution (DPI issue noted above)

    I cannot stand having one button and trying to navigate all the menus and options that you would have on a phone.

    The OS just feels dated, Widgets are just awesome

    Well I hope Heese didn't drop as much money rumored for this thing because Nexus Prime will destroy it.

    Oh and for those thinking Prime will be carried by Sprint don't count on it.
    Im betting Apple deal keeps it off Sprint Christmas list.

    I've played with my mom's iPhone 4 before and have not been impressed. It just feels like a smaller, 2+ year old phone. E4GT wins for me in every category (except for Verizon coverage in some areas), but not enough to make me ever consider switching.

    I am happy Sprint is getting the iPhone. I still respect it, and thank it for pushing android. It is clear that android is pushing the iPhone nowadays. The Epic touch is hands down a winner. Media on the display knocks em dead, and with music beta, and other core Google apps =win. I can't wait for the VZW and t mo crowd to have some of this super Sammy tech. Great year for android.

    With the reception issues of the SG2 I was actually waiting for what Apple had to announce and I have no interest in Apple at all. But after seeing this company and it's shannanigans and complete arrogance to what consumers want by bringing out the same small phone with minor upgrades and a supposedly "amazing" voice operations I am appauled. Nothing but another marketing gimmick just like face time was as problably only 40% of users actually use (my opinion). With that said I don't think that the Iphone4S can even compete with the Evo 3d launched months ago let alone hold a candle to the SGS2 or the comparible Photon. Upgraded camera and processor is the only thing new here as all other additions are software related and will be available to the IP4. So ill be returning the SG2 to Sprint and picking up the Photon and getting the GS2 on T-mobile with the new 30$ a month plan. I can't stop laughing at the Apple fanboys but no doubt they will buy it in droves as they have in the past. too me the "s" in iphone 4s stands for SUCKERS!!!!!

    Also, frankly im tired of swiping a bunch of apps left and right up or down. Both OS's seem dated to me. Im just waiting for a powerhouse phone from Windows 7.5..With true multitasking and something fresh and NEW!

    Actually from what I've heard Samsung knows how to program processors really well and the snapdragon performs on par with exynos.

    This thread is great for laughs. I don't get the snapdragon thing except that it was better for the t mo partnership as a whole? One thing in the geek world that made the SGSII the Shiite is the processor. This chip is so bad arse. Samsung Targets Exynos 4212 CPU for High-End Devices
    The Exynos 4210 supports ARM's SIMD engine (also known as Media Processing Engine, or 'NEON' instructions), and may give a significant performance advantage in critical performance situations such as accelerated decoding for many multimedia codecs and formats

    Not only the fact that they only upgraded the camera and processor, but it took them 16 MONTHS!!! That's a year and a quarter to only upgrade the camera, bump up the processor, iOS5 which every iOS device gets anyways, a voice control 'feature' that's been out for years, and just to add on top, the phone is 0.1oz. heavier than the iPhone 4 (of course, not serious about the last thing )! They could've done A LOT more things in that time frame. What Apple did, Samsung could do in a couple of months (Galaxy Note anyone?).

    Yes Officer... The Note from what i read is at the FCC. supposedly heading to ATT. I don't want ATT but will check it out when/if it comes out and not on Sprint. My wife likes it for the stylist and drawing. She as I were eyes wide open when we saw the guy Drawing on it. It will be a huge phone but cool as a baby tab...

    Having the iPhone will be good for Sprint, there's a lot of pent-up demand for it. It would have been nice if they could have included WiMax in the new version. That may turn off some Sprint users that were aspiring to upgrade. I have a Pre on a spare line that I thought I might upgrade it with the new iPhone, depending on its capabilities. Perhaps not.

    TiPb Poll: Only 21% Of iPhone Fans Are Getting an iPhone 4S

    Apple iPhone 4S Improvements Over iPhone 4:
    + Siri is much like Vlingo Voice Controls
    + Faster Dual Core CPU but iPhone 4 already was really responsive
    + Apple Matched the 8MP on the rear camera

    iPhone 4S Did not address:
    - Only 9% Want a Screen under 4". 4 years later, 4.5" is 58% more screen area
    - No LED Notification
    - No microSD
    - No Sprint 4G
    - No Verizon LTE
    - No AT&T HSPA+ 21Mbps
    - 0.3MP VGA front camera should have been 2MP
    - No DLNA
    - No Widgets
    - No FM Radio
    - No Keyboard options, Android has endless options
    - One Home button instead of Search, Menu, Back, and Home (also used by games)
    - No Removable, replacable battery
    - No Real micro USB connect - no proprietary USB cables.

    Couldn't have said it better myself Milo. There was so much Apple could have addressed and improved with the iPhone 4S that they just flat out ignored. It's even more appalling that they had well over a year to work on this updated model and still changed so little. Having said that, I certainly wasn't expecting to be converted to the iPhone with this announcement, but I also wasn't expecting such a massive disappointment either. It's like they didn't even try because they know it's going to sell like crazy regardless of what they do...

    Disappointing to no end. I sort of hope the sales reflect the disappointment of the phone and get Apple to shape up, because legitimate competition is what drives these companies to create better products.
