You're also glossing over the fact that there's a very large case market for iPhones, many of which increase durability by a good margin (see: Otterbox).

More on topic, I'll reiterate that I don't think these results mean what people think they mean. This quarter was immediately before a widely anticipated product launch for Apple; this is far more important than Samsung product launches, for the simple fact that there are precisely three iPhone models compared to the much larger number of Samsung phones on the market. It's also only the number of phones sold, which doesn't provide any insight whatsoever into profitability (probably the more important statistic, in the long run).
The Galaxy Nexus is a pretty big deal.......

Perhaps your understanding of design and mine is different.

If you look at pretty much the first line in my post you'll see I credited ARM to to creation of the architecture etc.

It's wiki but still;

(noun) a specification of an object, manifested by an agent, intended to accomplish goals, in a particular environment, using a set of primitive components, satisfying a set of requirements, subject to constraints;


"using a set of primitive components'



Design does not necessarily mean to credit the designer with creation of all the parts just the cohesion.
My understanding of this is 4 years of undergraduate Computer Enginnering study with a focus of micro architecture and embedded systems... what is yours?

You specificly say that the creation of cohesion between the parts, and that is correct. But compared to the work of literal design of a micro architecture, that is nothing. The design of branch prediction, super scalar pipelines and the fact that these ARM chips contain vector processing which is completely different than the style of processor in your computer far exceed the amount of work required to modify this predesigned architecture and physically design the caches and connect them. Point of fact, Apple did a ton of work on their phones... this however is not the place that most the work was conducted.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the Galaxy S2 match or beat the Galaxy Nexus in every aspect apart from the screen? If so, what's the point in waiting for the Galaxy Nexus if you can just get an S2 now and upgrade to ICS later?

The Galaxy S II beats every phone on the planet as of now. The Galaxy Nexus carries MOST of the S II's hardware except for the powerful GPU the Galaxy S II has. What makes the Nexus appealing is it's straight Android - no mods, nothing. Where as the Galaxy S II uses TouchWiz which is a complete GUI replacement of Android. TouchWiz usually sucks, but Version 4 actually is quite good. Full hardware acceleration, and makes full use of the Gyro and Accelerometer. Example: You can tilt the phone forward or back, and the browser zooms in or out - this uses the Gyro, which NO motorola phone has, even the newest high end ones like the Razr. Motorola is really starting to go down hill as they refuse to add technology to their platform. Especially since Gingerbread makes full use of the Gyro, as does ICS.

Right now when it comes to features and technology, Samsung has everyone beat, period. They have incorporated WiFi Direct, MHL - which is a BIG DEAL as it supports multichannel audio out to a receiver and full uncompressed 1080p video. Slap a MKV file on that phone and you'll be watching a movie in full 5.1 and 1080p bliss. Also included is USB To Go, which is USB Host, Bluetooth 3.0, DLNA, Barometer. Simply put NOTHING beats it. I can only imagine what the Galaxy S III will be like - that's supposed to launch Q2 2012 at the latest.

This.

Also, the Galaxy Nexus is the only choice for those of us on Verizon.

Also TouchWiz 4 is fully hardware accelerated - as well. The Galaxy Nexus carries over most of these features hardware wise, except for an older GPU. the SGX540 instead of the new gual core GPU. I like how TouchWiz 4 uses the Gyro and Accelerometer to zoom in and out.
The GPU in the SGS2 is the Mali-400 which is a quad-core

Well every couple of weeks? Christ I have to reboot - or my phone reboots it's self several times a day. It's the "used to be awesome before GB update f'ed it up" Droid X. My Droid X2 will be here as Verizon is replacing my X with the X2 due to many complaints from me at no contract extension. But I hear that phone has the same issues. Moto is really going down hill. My next phone will be a Galaxy S III or the new Nexus - if Samsung makes it.
