Galaxy Nexus vs. Samsung Galaxy S II [Comparison]

Google and Samsung just announced the GALAXY NEXUS that comes integrated with the new and refreshing ‘Android 4.0’. The Galaxy Nexus is a powerful smartphone loaded with latest software but it doesn’t has anything much different in comparison to SGS2, except a bigger and more brilliant display. Check yourself by comparing both the devices below:

If Samsung Galaxy S2 gets the Android 4.0 update then I don’t think current SGS2 users would find the need to upgrade to Google Nexus. That’s my view, share yours below. 🙂

    Fair comparison. The only superior feature in the Galaxy Nexus are the HD display, 4G capability and the OS version. If the Galaxy SII gets ICS, there’ll be virtually no reason to upgrade. Well, until the S3 hits the market next year.

    S2 already has the goods – external storage, 8mp and 2mp camera, and slim n sleek design. 4G isn’t a big addition to me, since 4G networks are non-existent in the UK.
