Not long after the announcement of the curved-screen smartphone by Samsung, the benchmarks and comparisons have already started making their way onto the web. Though Samsung Galaxy Nexus S is the first smartphone to feature all Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) was thought to be a hit, no one thought that it would be at Apple’s latest iPhone 4S right off the charts in most of the tests. The yet to be launched smartphone has aced in almost all the comparisons between it and others on the market.
The securing of the top position in almost all the tests can surely be attributed to the Ice Cream Sandwich as opposed to the device itself.
Though Samsung Galaxy Nexus tops in most of the comparisons still iPhone has shown its potential in the OpenGL test with its dual-core A5 chip. However, in terms of screen quality, speed, and design, these two phones are clearly the very upper crust of the mobile world but when it comes to comparing an iPhone with an Android phone, it’s very wrong to compare just the specifications. As you can see from the tests sometimes high speeds can be beaten by a nice OS.
Moreover what really matters is the end-user experience. Let’s just hope the wait isn’t much longer before we can get feedback on the user experience of the Galaxy Nexus. Apple has managed to wow users with iOS 5 and Siri on iPhone 4S. Google too has managed to give the much-needed push to the UI of Android with Ice-creamSandwich. Let’s see what the user experience comparison beholds.
