iPhone 4S Vs. latest generation terminals

Because Apple reused the design of the Iphone 4 for him Iphone 4s, the new device may continue to claim the title of the world’s thinnest smartphone, followed closely by the Samsung Galaxy S II. The Iphone 4s, however, he gained a bit of weight (increased from 137 grams to 140 grams), so the Galaxy S II It is the lightest in this comparison table at 122 grams.


The Iphone 4s has the same processor as iPad 2 (A5 dual-core 1GHz processor), which is on par with the chipset of the Motorola Droid Bionic, and slightly slower than the 1.2 GHz dual-core Samsung Galaxy S II. The HTC Titan and the BlackBerry Torch 9850 (no availability date) do not have dual-core processors, therefore HTC and Research In Motion use a single-core processor at 1.5 GHz and 1.2 GHz, respectively.

Apple hasn’t said how much RAM the Iphone 4sAlthough it was expected that the amount has doubled compared to the previous model, it seems to carry the same, that is, 512 MB. The Galaxy S II and the Bionic Droid (like most high-end Android phones) carry 1GB of RAM, while the Titan Single-core and Torch have 512MB and 768MB, respectively.

Apple broke the trend of displaying ever-larger smartphones and kept the screen size of the Iphone 4s in 3.5 inches. In comparison, the Titan has a generous 4.7-inch screen, the Droid Bionic has a 4.3-inch screen, and the Galaxy S II offers a 4.27-inch. For its part, Research In Motion has a larger screen than its usual 3.7 inches.

Although the Iphone 4s has the smallest of the screens in this comparison, Apple keeps the technology of the previous iPhone with its Retina display, which has the highest pixel density. The closest match to the Iphone 4s as far as screen resolution is concerned it is for the Bionic Droid, Meanwhile he Samsung Galaxy It has been praised for its sharpness and vivid colors (they really stand out). The HTC Titan it has the lowest pixel density here.

The Iphone 4s has an 8 megapixel camera on the back, on par with the Galaxy S II, Bionic Droid Y Titan. Apple says it made several improvements to the camera lens and aperture, which should help users get much better photos.

The Iphone 4s It can also record 1080p high definition videos, such as the Galaxy S II and the Bionic. The Titan and the torch they can record videos in high definition, but at 720p only. Meanwhile, Apple kept the same VGA camera for video calls in the Iphone 4s (with a resolution similar to that of the Bionic Droid), but well below the 2 megapixel resolution of the Galaxy S II. The BlackBerry Torch it is the only phone in this comparison without a video calling camera.
