Samsung Galaxy Nexus v/s iPhone 4S : Detailed Comparison

After the launch of Samsung Galaxy Nexus, this is the best possible comparison everyone is looking for. Both iPhone 4S and Galaxy Nexus have been announced this month & while iPhone comes with same design, Galaxy Nexus is a complete change. Lets have a look into specifications and find which one is better for you.Processor & RAM: Both devices run on dual-core processors. iPhone 4S comes with 800 Mhz & Galaxy Nexus with 1.2 Ghz clock speed. In terms of RAM, iPhone 4S has 512 MB while Galaxy Nexus has 1GB RAM. Although iPhone 4S is nearly as fast as Nexus but technically, Nexus has better specs.

Winner: Galaxy Nexus

Display: Galaxy Nexus has stunning Super AMOLED 4.65 inch display with resolution of 1280 x 720 and it clearly beats awesome retina display on iPhone 4S with 960 x 640 resolution. While iPhone 4S still has slightly more pixel destiny which makes text & images more sharper.

Winner: Galaxy Nexus

Camera: With addition of fifth lens, iPhone 4S is the best camera phone in the market, even better than some point & shoot cameras. It can record full 1080p videos with 8 megapixels and all-new optics. On the other hand, Nexus sports a 5 MP camera & can also record videos in full 1080p.

Winner: iPhone 4S

Operating System: Instead of restrictions which come in iOS, you can’t deny that iOS is the leader for the quality of apps we see on iDevices. Android, no doubt is one of the best open source operating system but at the end of the day what matters is applications you run on your phone. This is my opinion and android fans will totally disagree on this.

Winner: iPhone 4S

User Interface: Well, again iPhone is the leader. If you compare any app like Facebook, Twitter you will definitely see the difference. The icons are not properly aligned and lacks a polished look seen on iOS device. Also, you will not see good games on an android device. There are reasons for same: Android is shipping in hundreds of different manufactures while iOS is only available for iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad which makes it easy for developers to design quality apps.

Winner: iPhone 4S

Storage: Galaxy Nexus is available in 2 models: 16 GB and 32 GB and surprisingly with no option for expandable memory.  While iPhone 4S is available in 3 models: 16 GB, 32 GB & 64 GB. This clearly states iPhone 4S as the winner.

Winner: iPhone 4S

Battery: The biggest disappointment before and after Android ICS announcement remains the same. Battery !! This time again Google didn’t mentioned anything about battery improvements. Whereas Apple has been consistently working on battery from the day one. Even an android fan will agree that iPhone 4S wins.

Winner: iPhone 4S

Price: Pricing for Google Nexus has not been revealed yet but its obvious that you will see Nexus getting a lower price tag when compared to iPhone 4S which is available at $649 for 16GB (Unlocked).

Winner: Galaxy Nexus

This is it. Now it depends on you which phone are you getting this holiday. I already have iPhone 4 so I am not upgrading to 4S and buying Galaxy Nexus instead. Do tell us your choice.
