Galaxy Nexus Vs iPhone 4S | Which one has the upper edge?

Google’s Galaxy Nexus is the latest addition to this year’s hot smartphone line-up, alongside the iPhone 4S. Galaxy Nexus offer plenty of features you won't find on Apple's blockbuster sequel.

But does the Galaxy Nexus stand a chance against Apple’s iPhone 4S, which is currently selling like hot cakes?

This post is just to discuss about the key differences between Galaxy Nexus and Apple iPhone 4s.

The Galaxy Nexus, manufactured by Samsung, embodies Google’s idea of the perfect smartphone, together with the brand-new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich mobile OS.

The first thing you’ll notice on the Galaxy Nexus is the huge, curved 4.65-inch display, which is considerably bigger than the 3.5-inch display on the iPhone 4S.

The Galaxy Nexus display doesn’t skimp on pixel density either; it has a 1280- by-720 pixel resolution, the highest in the comparison. The iPhone display however, still retains the highest pixel density at 330 ppi, a slight lead over the 316 ppi screen of the Galaxy Nexus.

The Galaxy Nexus is also very thin, (8.84 mm on the Nexus), which makes the iPhone 4S look a bit bulky at 9.3 mm. While the iPhone 4S is the most compact given its smaller screen size.

Processor and Memory:

Inside, the Galaxy Nexus, and the iPhone 4S run on the latest dual-core processors, namely 1.2GHz dual-core on the Android side, and 1GHz dual-core on the iPhone 4S. The Android phone also run on 1GB of RAM, while the iPhone 4S features half that amount.


As for storage, both Nexus and iPhone 4S come with 16GB of built-in memory, so you have plenty of space for your apps and media.

The Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S come in 32GB flavors, too, or even up to 64GB at the high end for the 4S, which doesn’t have a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage.


In the multimedia department, you won’t run out of options with either of these phones. The iPhone 4S have 8-megapixel cameras at the back that can record full HD 1080p video. The Galaxy Nexus can also record 1080p video, but, surprisingly, Samsung put only a 5-megapixel shooter on Google’s phone, which is less than what we have seen on other phones from the manufacturer, such as the Galaxy SII. All three phones also have video chat cameras on the front.

Even though there were plenty of differences to be said between Galaxy Nexus and the iPhone 4s, I am just stopping at the point what I think to be most important between these two. I hope you enjoyed this post, please leave your comment below.
