Samsung Stratosphere Vs. iPhone 4S

BY YAHOO! CONTRIBUTOR NETWORK
News York, TAG – When a wireless customer wants a "top of the line" phone these days, they have the benefit of a choice; do you want an iPhone or a Samsung’s latest Galaxy device, which is currently the Stratosphere?

Both the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Stratosphere have the most up to date hardware and each have their own class of innovative apps and software. The most obvious physical difference is that the Stratosphere has a slide out QWERTY keyboard.
In processing power the two phones are matched well, with the Apple’s 800MHz dual-core processor running iOS 5.0.1 nearly as fast as the Stratosphere's 1GHz "Hummingbird" processor runs Android.
In the hardware department Apple's primary advantage comes in the form of an 8.0MP rear-facing camera capable of capturing HD video in 1080P and a 0.3MP front-facing camera that is useful when combined with the FaceTime application to enjoy video calling to any FaceTime enabled device over WiFi. Popular applications such as Instagram make full use of the iPhone 4S' superb camera, and at the moment is only available on Apple devices.
The Stratosphere may only have a 5.0MP camera, but in addition to the slide out QWERTY keyboard also features a WVGA Super AMOLED screen that reigns supreme over all smartphone displays currently on the market. 
The screen is covered by Gorilla Glass, which is highly resistant to scratches and cracking. If you consume more media through your display than you create with your camera, the AMOLED screen is definitely a feature to look into.
On the software side Apple runs the show with its new SIRI voice activated interface, probably the most interesting new smartphone feature of 2011. Users can complete a variety of actions by merely having a normal sounding conversation with their device.
A question like "What will the weather be like today?" will get a response like "Cloudy with a high of 63 degrees".
SIRI needs Internet access to run, but has the ability to learn from prior exchanges and adapts to the user's voice over time. The Stratosphere has its own unique software in a built-in Kindle E-reader and an HTML browser that does support flash content. It also has the ability to become a media hub or Mobile hotspot, supporting up to 8 devices on a 4G connection.
Both phones offer 8 hours of talk time and approximately 200 hours of standby, and the iPhone weighs in at 14 grams lighter than the Startosphere . The 4S comes in three different sizes, a 16GB, 32GB and 64GB (each increasing substantially in price) while the Samsung comes with 4GB onboard memory and a micro SD slot that is expandable to up to 32GB.
The kicker for the Samsung Stratosphere may just be the price; retailing at $409.00, the normal price from Verizon with a 2-year contract is $149.99. There is currently an online discount that drops the price down to $99.99 with a 2-year contract. The 32GB version of the iPhone retails for $749.99 and can be had for $299.99 with a 2-year contract with Verizon.[]
