Dear Consumer Reports:

Imagine your life without the iPhone 4S. You would have many inconveniences and troubles. You would have battery shortages on your cell phone and you would carry unnecessary weight with you. My name is Matthew Wong. I believe that the iPhone 4s is better than the Samsung Galaxy S II. If you’re new to the “smartphone” world, you may not know which smartphone to choose. Is it Apple’s iPhone 4s, which seems like a good choice to everybody, or Samsung’s Galaxy S II? The Apple's iPhone 4S is obviously the right choice because it has an elegant design, a razor-sharp resolution, and is more portable compared to the Samsung Galaxy S II.

First, the iPhone 4S has an elegant and stylish design, with longer battery life. It has bigger buttons, and a better home button which makes it easier to operate. Here is a complaint from Samsung Galaxy S II, an article by Android Devices, written by Ed Hardy, about the misleading home button in Galaxy. "I have a Samsung Galaxy S II. When I press the home button, I am taken to a page that is not the home page. It is a page with the time/date, weather, sound button...I want to remove it and return back to my original home page." In contrast, the iPhone's home button leads you right to the home page, so convenient and easy to use. In addition, in Samsung Galaxy S II, published on Jan. 22, 2012, an article by Frustrated, quotes again that iPhone 4S is better than the Samsung Galaxy S II. “A couple weeks after I got the S II, I took it back to the Sprint store because it gets extremely hot and the battery dies quickly...” Clearly, The iPhone 4S is more superior to Samsung Galaxy S II with better look and design.

 

With the iPhone 4S having a razor sharp resolution, one can see great outdoors and indoors. According to Samsung, it says that their phones now have Super AMOLED screens. In the article Galaxy S: A New Era In AMOLED Technology, published on September 16, 2012, by Samsung, it states that the screens are 20% brighter and noticeably clearly than a typical AMOLED screen. However, what they didn’t mention was that this new Super AMOLED Technology only increases the brightness indoors, not when you’re under the sun. Also, on Samsung Galaxy S II, published on December 7, 2012, Hannah Bouckly states, andproves, that white colors on the screen of a Samsung Galaxy S II is not as bright and pure compared to the iPhone 4S. The colors of the iPhone 4S are bolder, stronger, and "warmer."

Some people say that the Samsung Galaxy S II has more memory than the iPhone 4S. But, that is misleading and not true. In Samsung Galaxy S II Specs, written by Samsung in the year of 2011, it says that the Galaxy has 16GB of internal storage and a memory slot that has a limit to 32GB. That makes the maximum memory storage of the Galaxy 48GB. According to Apple, in iPhone 4S Tech Specs, published on October 12, 2011, the standard data storage for the iPhone 4S is 16GB. But, if that is not enough, you can buy more storage from Apple, or you can just buy the phone with 64GB of storage. Also, the maintenance cost for owning the Galaxy is much higher as you have to change the memory cards every one or two months.

 

Some people might think that the Samsung Galaxy S II is better because the screen is bigger. But actually, bigger screen size is a disadvantage. True, that means that you have more screen-area to work and play games. But, let’s say you're taking a call. What if your ear or cheek accidentally touched the screen and hit the “end-call” button? Then whomever you were talking to would think you are rude and impolite. This would not happen to an iPhone 4s, as the screen is just the right size. According to Samsung Galaxy S II, published on Dec.11, 2009, from Big Resource, it says: “I don't know how many others are having this problem, but I hit the mute and/or speaker button frequently while on a call...The proximity sensor "works" but not in the sense that it works on the iPhone. The screen takes several seconds to dim and then can pop on at any time during the call allowing these buttons to pressed with my cheek...” - Ted Neugeboren. In conclusion, the iPhone 4s has a better screen with the right size since you can not accidentally hit the “end call” button.

 

After everything I’ve told you, what is the use of a smartphone if it’s not portable? The Samsung S II is longer and bigger, weighs more than the iPhone 4S. According to Compare Smartphones, by FindTheBest, published on Nov. 17, 2012, it says that the iPhone 4S weighs 112 grams while the Galaxy weighs 135 grams. That means that everyday, if you have a Galaxy, you will be carrying unnecessary weight in your pocket as compared to carrying an iPhone 4S. In addition, according to Apple iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S II, by GSMArena, published in the year of 2013, it states the iPhone 4S dimensions are 4.54 by 2.31 by 0.37 inches, while the Galaxy’s dimensions are 4.93 by 2.60 by 0.33, which makes the iPhone 4S more portable and convenient to carry.

 

With no doubt, if you are debating whether to buy a iPhone 4S or a Samsung Galaxy S II, the iPhone 4S is the right choice. Whether it is an elegant design, a razor sharp resolution, or an advantage of being more portable, the iPhone 4S has it all. It is now your job to advise your friend to get an iPhone 4S instead of a Samsung Galaxy S II. So quit debating and choose the iPhone 4S instead! Don’t regret that you didn’t get an iPhone 4S after you experience the Galaxy’s problems and inconveniences! Jaren L. Davis, an author, once said, “Make the decision, make it with confidence, and the world will be yours."

 

Sincerely,


Matthew Wong
