Round One: Storage Capabilities
In the first round, the iPhone 4s and Droid 4 went toe to toe in the battle for ultimate storage capacity bragging rights. In this hard fought round, Droid 4 came out hitting hard with 16 GB of storage space and a removable 32 GB memory card. However, the iPhone 4s answered right back with 16, 32 and even 64 GB models. While, it was a close round, the iPhone 4s seemed to be more on the offensive the entire round, landing more punches, including 16 GB more memory than its Droid 4 opponent.
Winner: iPhone 4s
Round Two: Processor
The second round was continued domination by the iPhone 4s, as it came shooting out of its corner with a powerful dual-core A5 processor chip. The Droid did its best to compete, but simply yielded in comparison with a Dual-Core 1.2GHz , Dual-Channel RAM Processor. The round was tighter than it seemed, but when the bell sounded, the iPhone 4s seemed to put up more of a fight coming off of the previous rounds domination in the storage capabilities category. But Droid 4 still had something to prove in the next round.
Winner: iPhone 4s
Round Three: Design
In the third round action, the iPhone 4s seemed to be continuing with its domination of the fight as it threw haymaker after haymaker, landing several headshots, but then its attack quickly turned to exhaustion and sloppiness. Droid then capitalized with a more attractive design and easier to use interface. iPhone 4s may have had an impressively sleek design and plenty of fun apps, but the Droid 4 answered right back, mirroring and eventually edging out the iPhone 4s’ design capabilities.
Round Four: Price
In round four iPhone 4s came back into the fight with motivation and redemption on its mind. The iPhone 4s does not like to lose. But still fighting hard, came Droid 4 with furious body shots and thunderous jabs. All and all, these two smartphones matched up fairly evenly in the price round both coming in with their lowest price of $199.
This round is a draw.
Round Five: Operating System
This was the final round and with the iPhone 4s having won two rounds already, Droid 4 with one and a draw in the previous round, Droid 4 needed to win the Operating system final round for there to be a split decision. With that in mind, Droid 4 came out giving everything it had left in the tank for the final round, utilizing the Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) operating system. To counter, however, the iPhone 4s knew the fight may come down to the final round and had subsequently been saving a little something extra in reserve. That something extra was “the world’s most advanced operating system,” iOS 5. While, Droid 4′s operating system landed substantial jabs and body shots, iPhone 4s’ threw Droid 4 off balance, eventually landing a knockout blow. Droid 4 was down; 4…5…6 and iPhone 4s stood in its corner with the confidence of knowing Droid 4 would not likely get up. 7…8…9… Droid 4 stumbled to one knee, but fell once more. 10… you’re out and iPhone 4s is the champion of all smartphones.
Winner: iPhone 4s
The overall winner of this smartphone battle – the iPhone 4s!
