Compare Samsung Galaxy S and S2

by kaensm / May 1, 2011 5:30 PM PDT

I wonder what's the difference between Samsung Galaxy S and S II since they look like the same. I know that they have something in common but many differences. Can anyone help me out in figuring this out?

There are rumors for iPhone 5 but the question is when will be its release? Is there really an iPhone 5 that we should wait for? Is this confirmed by Apple?

The main difference is that the Galaxy S is single core processing and the Galaxy S2 is a dual-core processor. I would recommend holding out sor the S2. Hope this helps.

Galaxy S2 for sure. Galaxy S won't even get an ICS upgrade unless you install it manually. Even then I've seen it run so slow. We can expect GS3 to come out this summer.
