    Here is a link to Android Police for a benchmark test on the iPhone 4s vs a Slew of Android Devices, including our beloved Galaxy S II.

    iPhone 4S VS. Android Benchmarks Posted: Even The Galaxy S II Is Getting Smoked (For Now, At Least)





    All I can say is, wow!

    Those benchmarks are from Anandtech.

    I found it interesting how Honeycomb did much better Gingerbread? Anandtech speculated that ICS might close the gap. Makes one wonder of its the OS holding back better scores.

    Like I've said the GS2 is six months old, and the king of Android phones. The iphone has always done better with certain benchmarks due to iOS being optimized for the hardware. As far as gaming, no surprise there as apple pushes gaming. Let's see how things are with the improvements in ICS.

    Remember benchmarks don't give the iphone a 4.5", a removable battery, or expandable storage space . Love the E4GT for what it is.

    That's an impressive Egypt score for sure. Before the iPhone 4S, the GSII was the only smartphone that came close to the iPad 2 score. My wife will be happy! I'll still take Android hardware any day of the week and twice on Sunday though.

    True but your Missing the true HDMI out factor which gives are toy the look of suffering in benchmark
    Are benchmark takes a hit due it produceing better HDMI visual output.

    Apple needs to tighten up slam dunk numbers are worthless in the real world in most cases due to the simplicity of their OS.
    Simply meaning it doesn't provide a true smartphone experience compared to android.
    Its generic , Nothing wrong with that but I prefer wide open freedom

    So you're going to base your purchase off of a benchmark? Benchmarks are solely for bragging rights and nothing more.

    Don't make me pull up the benchmark threads for the e4gt! Lol these forums were abuzz with how ba it was in benchmark tests! Lol

    I like how we pick stats that make us look good but brush them off when it's to our demise, lol. I'm all about stats and I'm bout to trade my e4gt lol

    Well said. Trust me, if these benchmarks showed the GS2 (or any android device) stomping all over the iPhone 4S, you'd see these same people shouting it from the rooftops.

    People have short memories. This is a constant back and forth with new versions of ios and android. Every new release one "walks all over" the other in JS performance. Showing Honeycomb already having an even match for iOS 5 will mean ICS will at the very least be at its level, probably faster. Add in that the GS2 can be overclocked and it is a no brainer that GS2 will go back up again. From what I have seen a 1.6ghz O/C on exynos already pulls faster benchmarks even without ICS.

    So when the Nexus Prime puts up numbers that make the 4S look bad will you be dumping that too because you're "all about stats"? There's always something newer and faster. Buy the iPhone because you prefer it over the E4GT, not just because it's the new kid on the block. Yes we would brag if the 4S benchmarked lower than the GS2 because it would have been embarrassing for Apple to take 16 months to release a phone that was top of the line.

    Benchmarks are important no doubt but what good are they if OS they sit on doesn't come close to what Android provides
    milominderbinderers link provides 25 features missing from iphone OS.
    If those features don't matter to you enjoy IOS high benchs they look good on paper not on iphones tiny screen.

    Lol you guys crack me up! I have been using iOS5 for a few days now, and I'm pumped on it. You know what is missing from Android? FAST LOADING! Anytime you have to load something, let's say Facebook, for example, it takes FOREVER!!!!!!!! And yet iOS is almost predictive! lol

    At least half of those 25 reasons are available on any smartphone, including the iPhone. Kies Air does sound really cool though, and a big S-AMOLED screen is nice for sure. (though 4 inches would be my ideal)

    I think we can all agree that benchmarks are fun for bragging rights and are interesting to read, but otherwise shouldn't have any weight in deciding what smartphone to buy.

    It boils down to this: if you're a techie person and want to always have the latest cutting edge hardware (be it LTE, or NFC, or the latest dual-core CPU, etc) then Android is the place for you. Neither the iPhone nor Windows Phone are likely to be on the bleeding edge. And there's nothing wrong with that - they just tend to take a more conservative approach.

    The one thing I will say about Apple is they optimize iOS very well to run on their hardware. May be the benefit of only making one device and controlling every aspect of it. Even before the duel core that thing was pretty snappy, and it only has, what, 512 MB of RAM? Granted, it probably isn't doing half of what Android does in the background, but it definitely gives them the edge as far as appearances and experience. Kudos to them. Now ... where's my ICS ...

    What do you mean by this? are you talking download speed? because if you are that has nothing to do with the phone and all to do with Sprints service. So unless you went to ATT or Verizon , you will still have to wait for your facebook page to load.

    Benchmarks a good tool to reference your phones power but they mean nothing really at the end. If your phone is performing at flawless movement and is handling everything you throw at it with ease. then its a perfect phone even if the benckmarks don't back it up.

    Enjoy your phone , which ever you use.

    I would've sworn the original galaxy S has the same app opening speed as the iphone 4, and after playing with my friends epic 4g touch I was blown away by how instant the apps open.

    The Speed in which this phone operates is hands down insane IMO. I have only own two Android phones and played with my wifes EVO but i have seen some great reviews here about other phones. Crapple has good reason to go against Sammy, Its the best out there right now and if it can stop them from continuing to dominate then why not.

    This phone can be faster and some of the problems that people are having do need to be addressed but by far Sammy is the top dog right now IMO.
    System wise Sony PS3 has to most power out there but XB360 is top system. Everyone I know that plays games has both or the 360. those that have both play 360 more.
    So if Crapple scores higher in these test let them. I still will enjoy my phone and its great power.

    About closing the thread, I don't see why but if need be.

    Could part of the reason for the benchmark results be that Gingerbread only utilizes one of the cores? I would think there would be an increase in benchmark scores once this phone gets Ice Cream Sandwich.
