Why is an iPad included in this list? That is a tablet, it has a larger battery and more surface area to dissipate the extra heat given off by internal components and thus they can clock the CPU/GPU up higher.

Not happy with how large the gap between the Galaxy Nexus and galaxy 2 is. Didn't realise how good the 4s's GPU was. Nice to get some comparison however!

Why when Android loss in an area, their fan boy can say its not critical. but when other OS loss to Android in certain area, they are not allow to say its not critical by Android fan boi??

The new Androids are very very powerful and so are the new iPhones. I just got a Droid RAZR...its quite fast. The thing that the iPhones have, in addition to great performance is the quality of the screen. While they're not the largest screens the display quality sets the bar. I look forward to when the Android devices can get that nice big 4"+ screen and beat both the iPhones ppi and color quality, contrast, and viewing angles. We're not there yet, but it coming.

Some think the latest Androids are already there...but those folks are not being honest or objective...and yes it does make a big difference. ...but I still like my Droid RAZR vary much.

I like Android Hardware, but I like Apple App Store... Difficult to make decision... Apple is still doing a very good job at their store.

So the Nexus, clocked 50% higher than the 4S, is less than 10% faster in browser scores? And the SGX540 in the Nexus (which is clocked almost twice as fast as previous versions) gets completely owned by the 4S?

And this is impressive?

To the people saying you don't need that kind of GPU power, what about streaming HD game content to your TV and using your iPhone as the controller?

um... do you not understand the difference in gpu and such? it would be like looking at the specs of an nvidia card and an ati card and saying how the ati card isnt 400% faster than the nvidia (cuda cores to stream processers)

also to some extent you have to take in that ios is one device, while android is multipul... you cant say "if the ios was XXXX it would beat android" because the fact is it isnt, and android is.

take a look at the fps... 30fps on a mobile device is more than good enough.
and to the above quote... you can do that, who does that, and whats the purpose, when games on those plat forms are touch based, you have to look at the tablet, and when they arent touch based, the controls are so bad that the games are border line unplayable.

Wow... just... Wow.... i have refrained from linking to anandtech on toms out of respect... but toms is always a day or two behind. like this. Has crappy info. No edititing. Horrible spelling... and now they are flat out posting anandtechs reviews....

The difference in speed in regard to the browser is negligible. Most people wont notice a fraction of a second.

However, everyone defending the inferior GPU on the Nexus and saying it does not make a difference could not be more wrong. Playing video, games and even just general usage all make use the of the GPU. Its the difference from smooth experience, compared to a choppy one. And anyone who has navigated Androids GUI sure as hell knows its not as smooth as Apples iOS.

So please be objective or else your arguments dont hold any weight.

People complaining about the GPU or defending it are making it an Apple vs Android thing, but it's not. It's more a Nvidia vs Imagination Technologies (or other smart phone GPU maker). Of course the new SGX543MP2 chip is gonna be faster than the old SGX540 one.

Android phone makers need to step up and start putting faster GPU's in their phones.

I would really wanna compare how either the iOS or Android handle their graphics, by having toms or someone benchmark Apple and Android phones with the same CPU/GPU combo.

1 - Yes, it is like looking at Nvidia and ATI. The iPhone 4s is clocked lower but performs better. Which is why it's bad if people just look at mhz.

2 - 'ios is one device, while android is multipul' - interesting spelling aside, we're comparing the BEST Android phone to the iPhone. So I don't see a problem.

3 - 30 FPS? Enough? Switch from 30 to 60 and see if you'll notice the difference. Hint - it's very different. Not only that but on more detailed more modern releases you wont get anywhere near 30 fps if it's been designed to run at that speed on the iPhone 4S.

4 - You can wirelessly stream to your TV with iPhone 4S, and you can plug in a game controller on Android, so it's very relevant.

The bottom line is that GPU performance is the most limiting factor in phones, particularly as resolutions get higher - so this is a big with for Apple.

Sorry, but it's obviously an Apple vs Android 'thing'. Apple chose to put the fastest GPU of any mobile phone in their phone. Samsung didn't. Samsung's choice, Samsung' failure - and as the biggest representative of Android handsets, Android's loss.

Who cares about iOS vs Android with the same CPU/GPU combination, given that they never have the same CPU / GPU in real life. People care about the devices and how they actually perform, not how much better their hardware would perform if it were possible to install either on a single device.
