The expectations were high but the show was rather uninteresting iPhone 4s is launched much to the disappointment of a few Apple fans this wasn’t the way Apple used to launch products (sadly no WOW factor this time ) and the atleast in the name “iPhone 5” would have made Apple fans much happier. 8 mega pixel camera a dual core processor A5 and no change in the looks .Apple may have given Android phones a slight edge for two reasons
1) Samsung Galaxy S2 looks more impressive in looks and specs compared to iPhone 4s and Apple seems to be playing the catching up game which is unusual to the company Apple which usually sets the trends for others to follow.
2)Apple’s iPhone 4 s launch will quickly be eclipsed by the fabled Nexus prime (yet another Google’s attempt at Nexus series but this time with a reliable partner Samsung as the hardware vendor) which might be technical advanced specs compared to Galaxy S2 or iPhone 4s.
Here’s the comparison drawn so far between the two smart phones.

Dont miss the windows-8-giveaway-.What do you think? Has Apple done enough with the iPhone 4S to counter the Android threat? Pound for pound who will come out on top? I think you may already know the answer.
