What separates these two giants and who is the number one is a question that will take us a long time to answer as both companies will launch sleeker and better phones soon.

As of now let us compare the two phones and find who the best is:

The display – the S-AMOLED versus the Retina Display

The iPhone offers 640×960 pixels, 3.5 inch Retina display which is spectacular. The screen has a glass, scratch resistant cover that adds to its beauty.

On the other hand, the Super AMOLED 480×800 pixel, 4 inch screen is massive and the features are smart. It will not be wrong to say that this is one of the best displays that are available on an Android Smartphone.

The camera

The Samsung Galaxy S has a 5 megapixel camera on the back, but it lacks a flash and an anti-shake filter making it not at par when you want to shoot pictures in bad light.

On the other hand the iPhone has a 5 Megapixel camera on the back and a VGA camera in the front that is ideal for self-portrait. If you like your phone cameras this is an alluring feature.

Processor and OS

Both the mobiles have a 1 GHz processor built in almost the same framework. As far is OS is concerned Android 2.1 or 2.2 with Samsung TouchWiz UI overlaid offers you multitasking, flash and several homescreens. The iPhone has all these features and offers a lot more applications. Browsing the web on a Galaxy S is a cakewalk and hopefully it will catch up soon with the Apple’s App Stores!
