    I do not own any apple either. However work is now supporting apple. I have thought about getting the new IPad. Is it any better function-wise vs the 2? The display is nice but does it do more?

    The Galaxy S2 has a clearer, more scratch resistant screen and an 8 megapixel camera. It also has a faster processor, is more responsive, better to handle and is much cheaper. I fail to see why anyone would buy an iPhone!

    Apart from an old 2ng generation iPod, this is the first Apple product I've owned. I don't think there can be too many differences (display apart) as there are various threads on Apple Support forums asking how to tell the iPad2 and 3 apart (there's nothing obvious on the boxes for example)!

    More scratch resistant? Yes. Clearer? No. The fact is that Apple recognized the fact that the user connects with the phone through the screen, and they made it as important to their engineers as, say, the processor. The result is a higher resolution than any other phone. And I'm not a "fanboy"! I just happen to own an iPhone :P

    (One of many smartphone articles that have the same result).

    From what I've seen, the "super AMOLED" screen on the S2 is clearer than the 4S screen.

    Let's just agree they're both very nice (although the S2 is better )

    But you weren't arguing camera, you were arguing screen. On topic please.

    To be fair others were arguing the camera wasn't very good (S2 is still better though )

    Shiny new S3 coming out soon so will have to see what that has to offer.

    Still, this thread is about iPad not iPhone, and only the iPhone 4s has a good camera anyway.
