Since the iPhone 4S has just been announced by Apple, we thought we’d put it head to head against some of the leading Android devices currently available and the rumoured specs of the Nexus Prime. All of them are dual-core, all of them are sparkly, but some are apparently more revolutionary than others. Find our comparison of these beasts after the jump. And yes, I’m well aware I used the iPhone 4 image above, but I mean really, deal with it — they’re exactly the same.

More updates will come later. Staying up reading 3 live blogs for such an underwhelming experience has put my brain to sleep.

Also, the iPhone 4S is said to be clocked at only 800Mhz not 1GHz

Ah true that.
I think when it was first announced though many sources had it as 1Gb.

Having just bricked my iphone 3gs trying to upgrade to ios5 and spent a frustrating two days trying to recover it without success, I’ve decided life is to short for Apple so have ordered a Sensation

Well, I finally got the Sensation and after a bit of a learning curve – setting it up and getting to know the OS (also increasing font size and improving loudness)  I can say that I am more than delighted with the move, love the bigger screen, the speed, build quality of the phone and being liberated from itunes

I was hoping not to see much about iPhone on an Android based news site, but I guess since this phone is seemingly Android’s biggest competition I can deal with it. Also the whole thing was a let down and it’s pretty funny to be honest.

Playing catch up huh Apple? Not a good look.

If Samsung and Google smash the Unpacked event (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oM9RO-GAKjE&feature=player_embedded) next week, we might be seeing a lot of people looking at Android.

Is it confirmed a PowerVR SGX543MP2 in the iPhone4S, because that will actually almost certainly make it faster than any other dual core chip out there… maybe Exynos can give it a run though…

I read over at GSMArena that the iPhone 4S also has been updated to 1GB RAM, which puts it right up there.
That 3.5″ screen size is pretty small though..

Your atrix 3g freqs specs are incorrect…..not ALL atrix phones have quad band 3g, only a few of them. ie the one telstra sells is only tri band. for example

Is Apple having a brain dump??? There is nothing about the iPhone 4S which makes it stand out from the competition! Android’s sales figures will continue to crap over Apple!

Isn’t the 4s 1gb of ram not 512?

The stock rom for the atrix is 720 for video but it is 1080 capable. Lots of custom roms let you record in 1080.
