There are people who are stuck with specifications and features of a device's hardware, forming a final opinion about something without even testing the product. I see a lot of people saying, ?Oh, the iPhone only has 512MB of memory, the very weak MacBook Air video card, the clock iPhone 4S processor low ?, among other things. But these same people forget that, in the end, what matters is the experience, the synergy between hardware and software that ends up dictating the good performance of the product: there is no point in having spectacular hardware if the software only crashes, for example.
See this comparison between the iPhone 4S (with an A5 chip dual-core 800MHz, running iOS 5) and Samsung Galaxy S II (equipped with Qualcomm processor dual-core 1.5GHz, running Android 2.3.5). Even with lower processing power, the Apple smartphone gains in performance:
Go to 4?30 ?if you only want to see the comparison between iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S II.
Interesting the analysis by Cory Gunther, from Android Community: one of the fastest processors on the market (Qualcomm dual-core 1.5GHz) has a very good performance, second only to the A5, from Apple. And, for him, better to have this performance and still have the option of running the Flash Player (which was disabled in the comparative test, to make things fair). Still according to Gunther, iOS is very efficient, being also responsible for this type of gain, not to mention that many websites are designed with Apple's mobile operating system in mind.
For Gunther, this proves that we don't need processors quad-core and 4.7-inch screens to have a good experience but give a pinprick on the iPhone screen, saying that you can?t imagine browsing such a small thing. Today, the iPhone 4S beats Androids devices, but he recommends users of the green robot to wait for devices equipped with quad-core, because yes the story will change! Although I think no one needs a phone with such a powerful processor, everyone will love having one.
Another point used to justify the performance of the iPhone 4S before the Samsung Galaxy S II that iOS 5 just came out of the oven, while Android 2.3 (codenamed Gingerbread), already has about a year of life the most correct comparison would be with Android 4.0 (codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich), which should be released soon. Once the Nexus Prime comes out, they?ll run tests to see who?s the best. Even so, Gunther says that Apple did a very good job with the iPhone 4S.
Now, my two pitacos: even having superior technical specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S II failed to beat the iPhone 4S. Do you know what that is? Consistent ecosystem. Gunther is right to say that iOS 5 is also responsible for the overall performance of the device, after all, as a dual-core 800MHz can beat another, 1.5GHz ?! That's why I'm going to hit that key again: forget about technical specifications! exactly why Apple does not say, in the presentation of its iGadgets, that they have so much memory, so much clock, etc. What matters is that the iPhone 4S is much faster than the iPhone 4 and that the graphic performance of the device has improved (a lot); what does the final experiment count, and what does it have 512MB, 800MHz CPU, etc.
Who is attached to numbers and specifications does not see the whole (n, Gunther?), After all, who would say that 800MHz beat 1.5GHz of the ?best processor on the market?? Now we?ll see if a quad-core against one dual-core a fairer comparison.
