Than the obvious things like Widgets, multiple markets, live wallpapers, way better/easier download multiple apps, nifty small ui stuff not going to get into, easy backup all my apps, amazing torrent apps, proper well done adobe flash, easy to root to do a lot of extra stuff (overclock + multiple roms etc), a LOT more free apps, you can download any link in the browser that you can download from your computer, super easy use file managers, you can use the led light as a flash light and turn the actual phone screen off, add media any way you like usually very easy setup to sync/add media over your wifi even 3g, true multitasking, a lot more awesome utility apps (there is even a facebook sniffer). I could keep going I know you can do some of the stuff with iphone jailbroken, but android can do a lot of that stock and it just does it better i feel. A lot of the iphone hacked solutions feel half done to me IDK. Others can probably add a lot more just what i can think of off the top of my head. iOS is great but i like Android a lot better, it's just so much more fun
Quite a list, thanks!
- What do you mean it is way easier/better to download multiple apps?
- Flash is a big plus. There's some websites I would appreciate flash on...
- Don't care about rooting, overclocking, etc. Who would want to reduce battery life on their phone on purpose? Well, I guess you would.
- Care to elaborate on the "A LOT more free apps"? Any specific examples? Last time I asked that question, the only thing that was brought up was a Google stargazer app. Hoping for more than that...
- File manager would be nice.
- Flashlight would be nice, but I thought you could do that with the 4 already? Guess not...
- Not sure that I want to manage true multi-tasking. I rather like the way Apple handles that. If I left too many apps open in the background, it'd eat my battery in no time.
- Care to elaborate on the "a lot more awesome utility apps"? What does a facebook sniffer do?
- I did jailbreak my current iPhone so I could tether it, but only used that feature once, so I don't really have any other reason to jailbreak/unlock it.

Image stabilization? 5 lense design? Beyond that, not really sure.

No no need for me to overclock GSII it's way too fast already. But you can if

In market you can download lots of apps quickly and they download in the background (check progress from top bar). Where ios you get ripped out of the appstore everytime you download an app.

Rooting is cool for custom roms and you can make full backup of your current rom etc.

I got free: Plants vs Zombies, Cut the Rope, Drag Racer premium, Flight Mania, Field Runners, all the angry birds etc. To clarify i got them legit from the stock market or amazon market which has a free paid app every day.

You can do flash light with iphone 4 but you have to keep your screen on for it to work. And you can make a nice little widget for it in adroid, even put it on the lockscreen if you wanted.

Well facebook sniffer is just an example i thought of at the time. Not a very good one i guess because it's just more of a hacking app. But idk i just seem to be more satisfied with the util apps. Granted ios has more games but android is catching up really fast. File manager, multiple media players, office tools, torrent clients, server admin tools, emulators, etc. You could probably fine an app/s that does the same thing or similar for ios. I just like some of the apps i have found better in this area than ios. Granted there are also many ios apps better than android it goes both ways. Regardless of os you are going to be satisfied app wise.

Battery life on my GSII is also very very good. so that's not a problem. There is more stuff. This is just what i can think of off the top of my head at the moment. :Cheers:

Has the Nexus Prime been included anywhere? That's supposed to be a great phone.

Wait for the Google Samsung conference here to see what the new Nexus device will be about. At the very least, it will be as good as SGS2.

iOS I find to be a much smoother and refined OS in general. Some people here despise iTunes but I actually do like it. The organization of it, podcast integration, plug-in your phone and it backs up all your data (well, i guess you got wireless sync now... where before it was an app you had to get from Cydia). If you're going from an older iPhone to a newer one, just plug it in to your comp and have all your contacts, texts, emails, etc... transfer over. If you're going to hate the ecosystem to begin with and refuse to learn it, than you're prob going to hate the phone.

As a phone, I see no reason to go overclocking it, battery is much more important than power, and current phones are already powerful enough anyways, but you can tell all your friends how your jiggahertz > theirs I guess? If you want more customization, jailbreaks are simple to do. No need to fuss with what ROM you're gonna throw on. I'll usually Jailbreak, download a few things I want (5 row icons, SBsettings), and just leave it at that. Set it and forget it, not everyone is interested in fidgeting with their phone all the time. Multi-tasking is much more efficient and battery conscious. Try as I might, but I've never been able to brick an iPhone.

But everything else... excellent and have no regrets after that iPhone 4S presentation...

i think its a bit of a misnomer for this chart to say the galaxy S2 comes in "16 and 32gb" when in reality, it has 16gb built in internally, 2 of which is system storage, about 1 is for RAM, and about 12 is for user storage

it still has a microSD card slot, i bought myself a 32gb micro SD for mine, so technically speaking the galaxy S2 can have a max of around 44gb of user storage
