A Closer Look At Chipsets On The iPhone 4 8GB And The Galaxy S

29/02/2012 | Author: | Posted in Mobile Phones

The forthcoming release of new mobile phones such as the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy 3 means that we are likely to see a reduction in price of older models such as the Galaxy S and the iPhone 4 8GB. We have a closer look at the processing power of these two models and also the design to see which handset may appeal to consumers who do not want to pay a premium price for a brand new model.

Neither the iPhone 4 8GB or the Samsung Galaxy S incorporate a dual core processor but both models do feature powerful chips that ensure that the phones operate at a good speed. The iPhone device runs on the Apple A4 chipset which includes a 1Ghz Cortex A8 processor. An excellent PowerVR SGX535 graphics processing unit is also present to ensure that anybody using the device for games titles can enjoy the ultimate experience. In terms of RAM memory the model includes 512MB which is ample although many device now offer amounts of around 1GB which means that the iPhone is slightly lacking in this area. The Samsung Galaxy S runs on a Hummingbird chipset which includes the same Cortex A8 1Ghz processor that is featured on the iPhone and 512MB of RAM memory. In terms of graphics processing the device does incorporate a PowerVR SGX540 chip which is a slight improvement on the Apple phone although it really is hard to detect a notable difference in performance as both models are so evenly matched. The Samsung Galaxy S offers a slightly better chipset than the iPhone but there is little to choose between both models in this department with each handsets offering great user speeds and excellent multi tasking facilities.

The iPhone 4 8GB features an adventurous design which keeps the phone looking very modern despite the handset being over one year old. The model was the first phone to incorporate glass panels on both the front and the rear of the device. This impressive design makes the phone stand out from the crowd and Apple even opted to use the same chassis on the iPhone 4S which is currently one of the leading devices available. At just 9.3mm in depth the device is incredibly slim and the compact 3.5 inch screen enables the phone measure up slightly smaller than many other smartphones in terms of height and width with measurements of 115.2 x 58.6mm. The Samsung Galaxy S features a larger 4.3 inch display which means that the overall dimensions of the model are greater. Measuring 122.4 x 64.2 x 9.9mm the device is still very slim and the modern design with the slightly curved corners does help the phone maintain a very modern look. The Samsung features a plastic back panel which may not feel as premium as the finish on the Apple phone but it does help the phone weigh less with a weight of 119 grammes compared to 137 grammes on the iPhone 4.

Even when compared to many newer devices the iPhone 48GB and the Samsung Galaxy S prove handsets worthy of consideration. Both of these devices include powerful chipsets and a modern design although many consumers will prefer the glass finish that is sported by the Apple device.

The iPhone 4 8GB and the iPhone 4S are available now.
