Battle of the year: Samsung Galaxy Nexus vs. Apple iPhone 4S vs. Samsung Galaxy S II [TABLE]

At long last! After it was initially delayed because of the sad loss of Steve Jobs, the Unpacked event finally took place in Hong Kong where the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the latest version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich were revealed to the world.

As we usually do here on the GSMArena blog, we like to put the hottest pieces of hardware in a dogfight against one another and that’s exactly what we’ll do now. The main star today is the Galaxy Nexus and it will stand up against the refreshed iPhone 4S, which now packs an A5 chip with a 1GHz dual-core processor and the Android-superstar the Galaxy S II. Let’s begin.
