At a iPhone 4S eventuality on Tuesday, Apple boasted of a new phone’s specs by comparing it to a series of Android competitors. But as many as newly minted CEO Tim Cook raved about a 4S, a doubt remains: Does a 4S truly smoke-stack adult to a rest?
For a consequence of comparison, we’ve taken some of a latest and biggest handsets opposite today’s many distinguished mobile handling systems and pennyless them down relations to a new iPhone. First, we have a Droid Bionic, Motorola’s latest and biggest 4G smartphone offering. There’s also a Samsung Galaxy S II, a much-anticipated supplement to a renouned Galaxy line. And of course, we have to embody a underdogs: Samsung’s Focus (which runs Windows Phone 7.5, a.k.a. Mango), and one of RIM’s many new handsets, a BlackBerry Bold 9900.
So let’s get to it.
First, let’s review these guys on what matters most: Their insides.
The Samsung Focus packs a weakest punch sporting a 1-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, while a Blackberry Bold has a rather faster 1.2-GHz Snapdragon model. The iPhone 4S and a Droid Bionic both residence 1-GHz dual-core chips, a 4S an Apple-designed A5 processor, a Droid Bionic an A9 processor. The Samsung Galaxy S II also facilities a 1.2 GHz dual-core chip.
Honestly, single-core chips are yesterday’s news. iPhone or not, dual cores are indeed improved than one.
We weren’t given a specifics of a iPhone 4S’s battery, yet it’s protected to contend it’s possibly a same as a iPhone 4’s, a 1420 mAH battery, or better. The Blackberry Bold sports a smallest in a battery department, a 1240 mAH battery, while a Samsung Galaxy S II has a largest, a 1650 mAH one (the improved to extract adult that super vast arrangement with). Schiller betrothed us adult to 14 hours of speak time with a iPhone 4S; we’ll see if that binds water.
Only a BlackBerry measures in smaller than a iPhone when it comes to arrangement size. The Bold has a most dwarfed 2.8-inch LCD. The iPhone 4S has a 3.5-inch retina display, usually like a predecessor. The Samsung Focus has a incomparable 4-inch Super AMOLED display.
The Android models welcome a “bigger is better” ethos: The Droid Bionic has a 4.3-inch qHD display, yet a Galaxy S II trumps even that with a gargantuan 4.52-inch Super AMOLED screen.
Although a incomparable phones are good for media consumption, a smaller phone fits some-more simply into pockets and doesn’t demeanour absurd when we indeed speak on it. Display size, therefore, is mostly a matter of personal welfare and depends on how we devise to use a phone.
It should be remarkable that a BlackBerry Bold 9900 is a usually one of a garland to embody a hardware QWERTY keyboard (and not a slide-out version), while a rest implement onscreen touch-based keyboards.
The Samsung Focus and BlackBerry Bold both have 5 MP cameras on board. We suspicion that cinema taken with a Focus were sub-par, and rather on a becloud side. It does offer HD video recording capabilities, though. The Focus is an comparison phone, it came out in 2010, yet a Bold 9900 debuted this year.
8 megapixels seems to be a customary in 2011. The Droid Bionic has an 8-megapixel camera. The Samsung Galaxy S II does as well. Both take bright, detailed photos. So finally, a iPhone 4S joins a 8-megapixel trend, also with print modifying functions. All 3 of these guys have 1080p video recording capabilities, so we can constraint whatever it is like we like to constraint with your smartphone camera with artistic clarity and detail.
The Samsung Focus and Droid Bionic are singular conduit guys. The Focus runs on ATT‘s HSPA+ network, while a Bionic sails on Verizon‘s CDMA and LTE networks.
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is a initial 4G BlackBerry, and it’s accessible on T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon‘s networks.
The Samsung Galaxy S II comes in opposite flavors that run on ATT, T-Mobile and Sprint’s networks. We tested a Epic 4G Touch, that is accessible on Sprint’s 4G Wi-Max network.
The iPhone 4S will be accessible on ATT, Verizon and Sprint.
Hardware wise, a BlackBerry Bold 9900 is unequivocally a usually phone that’s behind a times (though observant RIM needs to locate adult is frequency news). Android and iOS are still battling neck and neck for universe smartphone domination. And we should have some new Windows Phone Mango handsets later this fall, that should strike adult Windows Phone’s offerings to improved compare that of Android and iOS (hopefully, during least).
