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? Because where would we all be without it -- probably still using Nokia candy bar phones daily. Enough of that, check out our video below.
Google Instant Previews, the search feature that shows snapshots of web pages along side search results has finally made its way to Android and iPhone handsets. Users of Android must have vs. 2.2 (Froyo) or above, while iPhone users must have iOS 4.0 and above to take advantage of the new search feature. Users don't have to download or update anything at all to use the new feature either. All they need to do is search for a topic and the click on the magnifying glass on the right of the results (note, not the search bar).
This is one of those things that's not especially important to the evolution of Android's mobile OS or it's actual sales war with iOS, but heck, a 3D Android getting put together by other robots then turning around to destroy an Apple logo - that's just entertaining.

The Apple Vs. Google debate has been a major one since Android's announcement. And while each has it's own advantages, Android is usually seen as the "better" option because of it's openness and ability to be highly customized. Well the people at eWeek think that Android 2.2 is far behind iOS 4, and gives us ten reasons why.
