It’s time to big celebration over at Samsung Headquarters as the Korean cell phone company announced that the critically acclaimed Samsung Galaxy S2 has hit a whopping 20 million sales worldwide.

In early 2011, they announced that the 10 million Galaxy S sold. Later that year, they reported that the Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S2 had exceeded 30 million units sold in 15 months (the Galaxy S, introduced in July 2010, 20 million units and Samsung Galaxy S2 , launched in Korea last April and May in France, 10 million units). 

This time, they just announced they sold 20 million Samsung  Galaxy S2 in less than ten months. A performance for which Samsung should have now surpassed the 40 million Galaxy S and S2. According to Samsung, taking just 10 months to hit the mark puts it ahead of the original Galaxy S (hovering around 22 million sold) by 7 months. 

Recall that the iPhone 4S had over 4 million copies sold in one weekend, while it took 55 days to Samsung to surpass 3 million copies of  Samsung Galaxy S2. We have no unofficial figures, however, analysts said, the iPhone 4S could also exceed 30 million units sold in early 2012.

A real numbers game … what you think ?

iPhone 4S Vs Samsung Galaxy S2

Samsung Galaxy S2 has been known as one of the best smart phone and ranked as best smart phone from the lists of top ranked smart phones. Most of the top level manufactures present in global market failed to create device similar to Samsung Galaxy SII, even Apples iPhone 4. Perhaps makers of Samsung Galaxy S2 thought that they are unreachable, but that was only a myth. Soon apple launched iPhone 4S with a number of updated apps and feature.

In acquiring most of the global electronic market both of the products are compared with there features and apps. Following are some sincere differences of there features and specs.


Design

GalaxySII

We all know that design is a matter of taste. Different people have different taste for design. Some people goes for heavy and huge devices while other prefer light and tiny phones. So in such case we can’t predict for better one. Samsung Galaxy SII is a tiny phone ( 4.3-inch display, 8.49mm slim, 116g light weighted). On the other hand, the design of Apples iPhone 4S is same as its predecessor but it’s display (3.5 inches) smaller than the samsung i9200 galaxy s2 , but it’s not as thin as it. Samsung galaxy s2 release date was October 2011.


Processor

The Samsung Galaxy S2 comprises of a 1.2GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor. This processor is responsible for faster performance. Specially in case of net surfing this phone brings out the best experience for internet users. In contrast the iPhone 4S has a 1GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, which is also very fast though it provides best graphic support, it fails over CPU of the Galaxy SII in terms of performance, so the winner is Samsung.


Camera

Samsung Galaxy S2 has a 8MP camera with auto focus technique and LED flash that takes photos up to 3264 x 2448 and videos up to 1080p at the rate of 30fps. On the other hand the new iPhone 4S has an 8MP camera and able to take 3264 x 2448 pictures like the Galaxy S2. And of course, it shoots 1080p HD videos. They’re both equally good, so we have a draw here.


Platform

On comparing both phone based on there platform Samsung Galaxy S2 having android OS is the most popular platform at the moment, android is famous for easy to customization and for carrying huge number of apps in Android Market. On the other hand, Apple’s iOS is really easy to use even if the iPhone is your first smart phone ever, but of course it’s not what makes the new iPhone 4S special.

Must Read :

Its new program SIRI (you’ve probably already heard about Siri) this program is specially designed to help the user give commands to the phone, ask questions and send text massages. Most of the people will buy the iPhone 4S especially for Siri. Since Android is becoming older say by day, so in this case winner is iPhone 4S for its Siri.


Price

Price of Samsung Galaxy S2 costs £397.99 on Amazon, while the iPhone 4S having 16GB memory is much more expensive i.e. £593.15. However it shouldn’t forget that iPhone 4S was launched after the launching of Samsung Galaxy SII. So, apple will offer discount after some times. Samsung galaxy s2 price in India is near about ~30,000 Rs. I have collected this samsung galaxy s ii price in India through local cell phone retailer.

With considering above few features and apps a person can decide most appropriate smart phone for him/her.
