Samsung fires shots at Apple’s iPhone 4S with Galaxy S II comparison chart

Apple on Tuesday unveiled its next-generation iPhone 4S smartphone, and the handset’s striking resemblance to the previous-generation iPhone 4 is seen by many as a window for competitors to strike. The first competitor to leap through that window, as it turns out, is Samsung. Samsung on Tuesday evening delivered a comparison grid to BGR that pits Apple’s new iPhone specs against Samsung’s wildly popular Galaxy S II line of handsets, and the tale of the tape appears to favor the latter. Specific highlights include the Galaxy S II’s 4G WiMAX and HSPA+ outshining HSPA 14.4 on the iPhone 4S, Samsung’s 4.3-4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus displays outclassing Apple’s 3.5-inch Retina Display, and Samsung’s slim smartphone weighing in at more than half an ounce less than Apple’s hefty 4.9-ounce handset. Samsung’s full comparison grid follows below.
