is coming out, with Barcelona&#8217;s MWC 2011 event as the place to announce it officially. Presumably, a lot of assumptions draw round the handset, whether or not the successor impresses the smartphone market. To some, the Galaxy S2 is quite, seriously impressive with some great improvements built within. But, everyone has his own personal preference, of course.</p><p>It maybe an initial review to trust casually, maybe not. We need to test it, or even compare it to another champion to make sure this is worth

    iPhone is nothing in front of galaxy it seems. Their market monopoly came to an end.

    I’m feeling pity about the apple fanboys. they are spendng their hard earned money for age old technology, when it compared to galaxy.

  • tom

    Still I don’t know why the apple is enforcing the pathetic iTunes to do anything in iPhone an Ipods?

    I hate the iTunes, that really a burden to users.. so i’m leaving my iphone and moving to galaxy.

    @jamespothan, ideas are not one’s property.

    Let them sue chinese street companies first. It is not ethical to sue Samsung just because of the fear Samsung will boom.

  • http://www.technoparktoday.com/iphone-4-or-samsung-galaxy-s2-which-is-the-best/ dilip

    dont you guys just understand that their are 23 pending cases against samsung s2 by apple ….samsung is copyind the ios more than 70% he is a real cheat i love apple and i hate samsung

  • http://www.ninethsense.com/ PraVeeN

    Then you hate HTC also. There are many cases pending for same.

    iPhone4 is full of bugs which also helped increased sales of other phones.

  • http://www.technoparktoday.com/iphone-4-or-samsung-galaxy-s2-which-is-the-best/ dilip

    you can see the tear down of samsung galaxy s2 at ifix it website 17 of its hardware components are from apple i phone 3gs and 4 …………

  • http://www.technoparktoday.com/iphone-4-or-samsung-galaxy-s2-which-is-the-best/ dilip

    iam not here to talk bout HTC and what is the bug in iphone ……….. you have used it got bored or may be heard from others ..that iphone is not good

  • http://www.ninethsense.com/ PraVeeN

    I was an iPhone user and now I am on HTC which I feel the Android is far better than iOS. I did not go for iPhone4 as its reviews and ratings were very bad.

    I don’t think copying idea is a sin. Check history, technology change will happen only from the thought “You made X then why cant I make Y?”

  • http://www.technoparktoday.com/iphone-4-or-samsung-galaxy-s2-which-is-the-best/ dilip

    but reviews and comments do not make results well im going to take iphone 4 tomorrow byeeeeeeee………..

  • rajesh

    This review is all damn.this is all in favor of galaxy s2.where is samsung and where is apple.Apple is the most trustable and reputed brand where as samsung is a cheap and is not a reliable one.I surely recommend apple iphone 4 as the best till the arrival of apple iphone 5.

  • http://nil Atul C.

    I think Sam sung Gs2 is anytime better than i phone. its very costly to repair, when battery is also very costly. very hectic every time to use i tune……….

  • sanoop

    Apple is nothing but a piece of bullshit in unrealistic price. Apple IOS is nothing when compare with the capabilities of android. they implemented the muti tasking just after the arrival and neck to neck competition with android phones.

    Android phones having tons of features where the iPhone users can’t ever imagine or even dream. the only plus point of iPhone is the build quality, but the software is just a piece of shit.

    I still remember the limitations of iPhone earlier, they werent even allow to forward a message..phew..

  • abhi

    but the class and charisma u will get by using iphone 4….u wnt get it in by using samsung s2……..and also s2 has come after iphone 4….obviously they will have a upper hand as they already knw wat iphone 4 is having….i m sure the release of iphone 5 will rape samsung apart…..

  • Sunny

    Hey guys iPhone 4 is a god phone samsung galaxy s2 is also good but the problem is that samsung uses low quality parts and apple uses good quality parts and iOS 5 is the worlds best OS android is not so good I know it’s more customizable but not friendly where as iOS is know for it’s friendly ness
    iPhone hav eye retina dp and samsung AMOLED which is not so good as eye retina.
    And samsung is Korean based company and apple is US based company
    So all know who is best

    So if u want a good but not cheap phone u should prefer iPhone 4

  • Sunny

    And another great feature that only iPhone haves is that it can also run android OS whether it is Ginger bread or honey comb

  • http://www.technoparktoday.com shaid

    i phone is better than samsung galaxy
    galaxy feurates like chines mobilre
    iphone good to be use

  • miraj

    i phone is good but i love android OS. samsung galaxy s 2 give combination of speed and android OS. one more thing is their price difference of both phones.i go with galaxy s 2 . if i phone use android OS then no one can compare with this phone to any other phone.

  • Prathap

    Samsung Galaxy is feature rich, but iPhone is just surviving with its brand name only. if i’d given a chance to choose between these two, i would go for Galaxy

  • pnb_2k

    Samsung has improved themself a lot and now become a brand. Apple try to cash it’s brand name by providing less/old features. Now a days most of the products are made in china only but good companies maintains their standard even if it is china made. Definitely iPhone have rigid body and galaxy S2 has cheap body so need to be handled carefully. But i feel both phones are overpriced.

  • Mary

    Samsung has been around for so many years . I had a Samsung phone before and i had no problem. I am torn between the apple and the Samsung galaxy. Well i have the galaxy and i like it a lot and i have no problems with it. Apple and samsug are both amazing companies . Galaxy is faster slimmer and the screen is bigger.

  • http://www.apple.com Vaishakh

    Hey Guy,

    What did you know about iPhone? Have you ever used it? I’d like to explain in couples of words that what’s the differences between iPhone and Samsung (others).

    IPHONE USED VERY STANDARD PEOPLE AND SAMSUNG OR OTHER MOBILE PHONE USING BY NON-STANDARD PEOPLE

    YOU CAN’T COMPARE IPHONE OR ANY OTHER APPLE PRODUCTS TO ANOTHER ONE

    Cheers!

  • pavan

    where is samsung and where is apple.Apple is the most trustable and reputed brand where as samsung is a cheap and is not a reliable one.I surely recommend apple iphone 4 as the best till the arrival of apple iphone 5.iphone is best@always

  • natalie

    samsung galaxy s2 is better,look at all the features and compare to the iphone 4.it is not necessary to pay more money to get the best. it is smart to have good things at a good price.

  • keecee

    samsung galaxy beating the i phone in ratings is amazing. forget the cheap parts but look at the features. the both fo them are good but i go for the galaxy s2 it is far better than the i phone4

  • 4641rahul

    suggest me with these 2 freaking disaster……iphn 4 or gs2…???

  • cibil

    but What I heard is the samsung phones having some complaints. i know 3 of my friends needed a board replacement for samsung galaxy models within the first six months.

  • http://www.ninethsense.com/ PraVeeN

    Heared 34% of the Android phones affected by hacking. So there must be some security flaw in this free-stuff.

  • http://facebook.com lei

    go appllllllllllllllllee

  • Ram

    This is a sick comparison. I used both and eventhough the hardware is huge for S2, the bad OS (read Android) is the pain. It still lacks power (hardware wise). The screen looks brighter in S2, but response and smoothness is generations behind compared to even iPhone 3Gs. Also Android drains the battery faster no matter what technology LCD uses!! If it was even a half-match to iPhone (e.g Camera), then why is Samsung bringing the Galaxy S3 next month? So if you are posting comparisons, please stop the fan-boy approach and give comparison on actual usability (not hardware spec)

  • http://www.rapidsofttechnologies.com Frida Adams

    iPhone plays games and 3d games better than S2 and also it has good battery life than Samsung galaxy S2. iPhone 5 has been launched and Galaxy S3 too…. So now we should talk about these two. But in my view, iPhone is an iPhone not anything beat it.

  • manoj verma

    galaxy s2 is toooooooo much faster than iphone4 as it’s my own experiance

  • dharmendar

    hey SAMSUNG GALAXY S 2 IS BETTER THAN APPLE apple is the waste company why should i pay more money to get a worst phone(apple iphone) i should pay to get a best phone (galaxy s2)
