We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: “Meh.” That was the collective Mobo-reaction to the iPhone 4S announcement on Tuesday. Any self-respecting writer/blogger/journalist would surely struggle to describe it as anything other than a modest update.
Anyway, turns out we’re far from alone. Know who else thinks the iPhone 4S seems a little lame by today’s standards? Samsung.
Samsung is so unimpressed with the iPhone 4S, and so assured of the Galaxy S II’s superiority, that it has published a full comparison chart thingy.
Areas where Samsung feels its offering is superior are marked in blue, and include the Galaxy S II’s Super AMOLED 4.3in display, 4.3oz weight (vs the 4.9oz iPhone 4S), removable battery, and – no arguing with this one – price.
It’s worth pointing out too that the Samsung Galaxy S II has been around for five months. And of course the South Korean manufacturer is imminently set to follow up with the 5.3in Galaxy Note and 4.65in Nexus Prime (probably).
Time for Apple to crank it up a notch, methinks.
