Galaxy Note vs iPhone 4S

Galaxy Note vs iPhone 4S

Truth be told, I love Apple products. I have owned both the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 4. The original iPhone sparked my desire to write about technology.

A few hours ago, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, announced the iPhone 4S. So how does Apple’s latest and greatest hold up to Samsung’s Galaxy Note?

As you can tell from the chart above, both the Galaxy Note and iPhone 4S have their advantages. Some things are clear winners for one side, but some have to do with personal preference. For example some might find the 3.5 inch screen on the iPhone perfect for their needs, so the 5.3 inch doesn’t get marked down as the winner.

Now every feature is not accounted for on the table either. Namely the note aspect of the Note. The stylus stored in the phone’s body is an excellent value added feature.

Apple is launching a phone that can barely hold its own against today’s phones and will fall behind as the year goes by.
