Buy The Samsung Galaxy S2 Now Or Wait For The iPhone 5 (4GS)

The world of the smartphone is one that is heating up more and more by the day. Only recently we have seen hints of the white iPhone in a 64GB model, the LG Revolution price being revealed and the HTC ChaCha getting an early release but there are two other devices that everyone is talking about at the moment.

They are made by Samsung and Apple who are currently at loggerheads in courtrooms but the battle extends to the market where we are wondering if we should buy the Samsung Galaxy S2 (II) now or wait for the iPhone 5 (4GS). Already we have reported that the Galaxy S2 is due to be hitting India on June 3rd as well as 5 desirable additions to Sammy’s new flagship device.

The Galaxy S2 will come with a mass of excellent specifications including the 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen that is at a resolution of 480×800, NFC capabilities, a dual-core processor running at 1.2GHz as well as 1GB of RAM. Not only that but it features a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera that can record in 1080p HD, a front-facing 2 megapixel camera and it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but we are pretty sure that will be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich when it becomes available from Google. You can read the full specification list from phonearena.com.

On the other hand we have the unknown because Apple is so secretive about its devices. All we can go on for the new Apple iPhone is the rumors and speculation such as the improved rear-facing camera being at 8 megapixels and being redesigned on the back of the device. We have also heard that it will be smaller than the current iPhone 4, that it won’t feature NFC and that it a release date is being teased for June/July.

So what do we do, do we go with the Samsung Galaxy S2 where we know exactly what we are getting or do we wait for the iPhone 5 (4GS) that we really don’t know anything for sure about? What do you guys think? Which option will you go with? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I'd say go for Samsung! I know apple products has its own pros & cons but its really frustrating for ppl like me in India where its being launched a year after its debut in US! I am going to buy samsung just to make a point that this kind of an attitude will definitely not work! Apple has to realze that its loosing some potential market because of its laid-back attitude!
