Samsung compares Galaxy S II to Apple's new iPhone

Matt Hamblen | Oct. 8, 2011
Samsung countered this week's iPhone 4S unveiling by proclaiming that its Android-based Galaxy S II is superior to the Apple device in many ways.

Samsung also cited the Vlingo voice activation feature in the Galaxy S II, while noting the Siri system in iPhone 4S remains in its beta phase.

The Siri feature in the iPhone 4S still requires activation by hand and can't support hands-free as the Galaxy S II can, according to officials at Sensory, whose hands-free activation technology is in the Galaxy S II.

Samsung also noted the $199 starting price for the Galaxy S II includes 16GB internal storage and up to 32 GB external storage.

The $199 iPhone 4S is a 16GB model with no external storage.
