Even more misinformation. Apple started ARM way back when, and used the processors in the Newton and iPod.

They designed along the a4 which samsung benefited from as the hummingbird.

The a5 again is apple designed and they own intrisity.

Uhh? The A5 is designed by Apple.

I imagine this time next year when the quad core A6 is out we'll see a significant increase in screen res.

The 4S is an extremely big upgrade for me personally, as I own a 3GS. I'll be preordering for myself and the misses. For iPhone 4 owners? Not so sure...either way, people are going to gobble this phone up. It'll set the new bar by which every other phone is judged until this time next year. Just the way it is.
Even at 4.4" an iPhone would have about the same PPI as the retina iPad which is still really good. However, if Apple did choose to increase the PPI which I doubt, they could increase it to 1440x960 which would be about 390 PPI. The iPad 3 would need a 3072x2304 resolution to match that (almost exactly) which is really just way too much. I'd still like it though.

I'm also upgrading. Probably to the 16GB model.

You and a million other people in this thread have their heads so wrapped around numbers and specs that it's not even funny.

Numbers don't mean anything. It's how the OS is programmed and properly optimized for its hardware that makes the difference.

Difference in philosophy I guess. All hardcore Android users care about is specs on paper rather than the actual experience with the device.

Sorry.I like my phones to work reliably without glitches and lockdowns from the "Mother Ship".
I've had to straighten out a few Apple 4's lately.
Bloody annoying.

True enough,but it's like the MPG ratings on new cars.

Oh goody, this argument again.

What makes you think then that Android is an inferior OS at this stage? The fact that it can adapt to a variety of hardware configurations without changing much of the underlying code is a feat in itself. Also, you are still arguing about the Android of old - the crude, buggy OS many of you Google detractors seem to hold on for so long. Granted that the platform still has room for improvement, at its current state of 2.3.7 Gingerbread it's far more usable and stable than what you believe. I have yet to experience a massive failure on my CyanogenMod 7 nightly build Desire HD, or an experimental Cognition X2 beta update on my new Galaxy S II.

The experience on Android is different from iOS due to the different philosophies employed by the two platforms; one is more curated and integrated, while the other is more sandboxed and customizable. This immediately invalidates the "inferiority" of the Android UX when it's not really playing the same ballgame as iOS. They can do the same basic stuff differently - the iPhone certainly has the edge with the App Store and iTunes, but Android can counter it with a more open development approach, Google Music Beta and the simplicity of a drag-and-drop filesystem.

However, take note that in terms of raw features (aka what's baked within the system), Android has iOS beat. The native support for various file formats, ability to function as a mobile hotspot, and many others are present in stock Android when iOS needs a jailbreak to do that. When rooted, Android takes on a whole other level: ability to generate localized ROM backups, full access to system files, low-level coding and editing, etc. can be done on Android that iOS could not ever achieve.
