Samsung not impressed with iPhone 4S

Samsung not impressed with iPhone 4SWe’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.

Apple have no need to try hard, people but their stuff irrelevant of if it's any good or not.

Matt agreed Apple doesn't need to try hard at all not that I'm a fanboy or anything but they could sell well Apples in their stores and people would still queue up to buy them and that is the power of their brand.

but if apple dont continue to innovate that wont last. look at nokia and blackberry... lost touch even slightly and it could be the end.

I think Apple will continue to innovate even without Steve Jobs they have a great team in their R&D and Apple is not like other brands where people will lose interest Apple are in a very unique position that they have a unique cult following brand loyalists which no other brand has.

well samsung has a point, but the 4GS will sell so many more anyway because, well, its apple. Thats what happens.

Do find it interesting that Android Gingerbread is coloured blue in comparison to iOS tho, now thats got to be more subjective than actual fact :)

Julias. they had a cult of personality... steve was the focal point of that (almost religion) and the new guy 'tim' is well boring...

Yes your right Jan Steve was the L.Ron Hubbard of Apple and that was Steve's power and Tim may just sink Apple who knows?

Seriously: comparing screen size is ridiculous. People know what size screen they are buying. Many people do not want a 4.3in slab. Others find 3.5 too small. Hardly a victory for Samsung. Just a matter of taste

Stelph  Oct. 8, 2011 at 13:23

@JanSt - exactly, another good point, personally im happy with a 3.5" screen or even a 3.7" one but about 4" is just mental, they dont fit in my pocket!

stelph. when the note comes out take a picture of you holding one ;) if the 4.3" sgs2 wont fit the note should be hilarious lol
