Not only were Apple fans holding their breath yesterday during the iPhone 4S release event, but understandably, so were competitors. Samsung Electronics didn't waste any time in releasing a comparison sheet that points out the Galaxy S2's advantages over the iPhone 4S.
Samsung emphasises that its star smartphone has true 4G data with WiMAx, HSPA+ 42 or HSPA+21 Mbps, as opposed to the 3G HSPA 14.4 connectivity of rival iPhone 4S, AppleInsider reports. The Galaxy S2 is also presented as more appealing due to its screen area, 42% or 58% larger (depending on carrier version) than iPhone 4S currently has. The Super AMOLED Plus is depicted as a better option than the Retina Display, according to Strategy Analytics.
A higher resolution front camera, better video recording features, removable battery, HDTV remote control functionality and the partnership with US carrier T-Mobile are also listed as advantages for the Galaxy S2.
This recently published comparison, though perceived as an aggressive communication by some standards, is just the tip of the iceberg. Samsung Electronics and Apple have met in courts all over the world in more than 20 patent-infringement cases; the most recent action being taken by Samsung to stop the sale of the iPhone 4S in Italy and France, even before it hits these markets.
