    Nice one Jan, I like the ending...

    I know its not meant to be analyzed, but wouldn't you say that the whole willing-to-switch-to-Android thing is more thanks to the SGS2? The combination of Samsung's marketing and Androids awesomeness started the trend with SGS2 - and now the hype around the Nexus is probably just compounding onto that.

    If only the Nexus was an option for us MTN upgraders

    Great comparative review, Jan.

    I'm surprised to hear that the 4s's processor is clocked at 800Mhz - I always assumed it was 1Ghz.

    I'll take the Galaxy Nexus in the end, as the iPhone's screen is just a little small. My 3.7" screen (Defy) sometimes seems too small, so I can't imagine a 3.5" screen keeping me happy. But in the end, both are awesome phones and like you said, it's all about personal taste.

    PS - good luck with that 1206 unread emails of yours

    Interesting results on the benchmarks.

    I wonder how the 4S would've been with the CPU at 1GHz....
    Anyway... gonna get some Infinity Blade II going hehe

    Bring your IB2.... I'll just start up WifiKill and kick you off the network

    Anyway.... I am very tempted to go Nexus, but for some reason I would have preferred a RAZR MAXX body

    Also have the Galaxy Note teasing me in the background, maybe I'll just wait to see what the price will be and then decide.
    .... and thanks for all the fish.

    Compared to these two devices the Note wins hands down in my opinion. One quickly get used to the size and then it is only a pleasure to use. When I now look at my SGS2 I cannot believe that I was happy with that screen, and when I look at my wife's iPhone 4 screen I just shake my head.

    The battery results tell a completely different story to the datasheets.

    The Galaxy Nexus is best. Why? Because it’s the first Android device that has the BlackBerry loyalists in the MyBroadband office considering a switch to a different platform.
    Who would that be?

    Samsung is a company that produces rubbish knock-offs, in my opinion. I have had several Samsung phones and they were all crap. Nearly every Samsung device (of any type) I have owned has failed within 24 months of ownership. This includes printers, monitors, air-conditioners and optical disks.

    Ah to the author, you might want to consider cleaning the screens of the phones before you photograph them?
    And this is the bottom line.

    Must agree with you there...I still have my SII and it feels so little when I hold it...
    had my Note for a week now and very happy. battery is good even with 8 hours a day of heavy using...
    But I don't know how gsmarena can quote 26 hours talk time hahahaha
    must say it's on 2G though...never tried it.
