Samsung Galaxy S II vs iPhone 4S browser comparison and load times [Video Updated]

The iPhone 4S is finally here and while we don't have a 5 to compare things to, we do have the 4S to throw up against the Samsung Galaxy S II for a few browser load times and overall performance tests as I'm sure plenty are interested in seeing the results. I always told myself I'd never use the word "iPhone" in a title here at Android Community but this isn't about me -- its for you, the readers. A little friendly competition is always nice right?

Perhaps you've heard of the most massively powerful out of the box Android device on the market today, the Samsung Galaxy S II? Have a peek at the CF-Bench result of the device as it rests in the hands of our good pal Vince, compare it with the dwarfed results of the rest of the devices back in our original CF-Bench post and you'll see.
