Who needs the iPhone 5 when this could be the most epic dogfight battle of 2012 (at least, so far)? Aaron throws the Samsung Galaxy Note into the ring against the Apple iPhone 4S. The Galaxy Note tabletphone is available now on AT&T and offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 CPU, 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD (1280x800 pixels) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 2,500 mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 2.3.6 with Samsung's TouchWiz 4.0. Apple's iPhone 4S offers an Apple A5 dual-core CPU, 3.5-inch Retina display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, a front-facing camera for FaceTime, 1,420 mAh battery, HSPA+ connectivity ("4G" as AT&T calls it), and iOS 5.
Two very different devices that will appeal to two different demographics. Which one is the must-have, best all-around smartphone? We'll figure it out! Part 2 of 2.
