Why You Should Buy an iPhone 4S...
Searching for a top of the line mobile phone can be a nightmare. With so many incredible devices on the market, finding the one that's right for you and that's the best deal can seem close to impossible. Really, the only way to make a good decision is by running a head to head comparison, and that's where we're here to help. LG's latest model is called the Spectrum, and it's pretty fancy looking, not to mention reasonably priced and laden with features. But how does it hold up against the competition? We put it up against the iPhone 4S, just to see what it could do. It was a close run race, but one of these devices has to be crowned the winner...

Why You Should Buy an LG Spectrum...

Firstly, the LG is an Android device, which means one very important thing. Android can run multiple applications at the same time, letting you talk on Skype and browse the internet simultaneously, for example. Apple can't do this. So if you're a multi-tasker, this is a big advantage. The Spectrum is also faster, running a 1500 MHz processor, versus an 800 MHz processor on the iPhone, making it snappier and more responsive. It also runs double the RAM, which helps with responsiveness but also makes the phone better able to handle running multiple processes at the same time. The screen on the Spectrum is larger than that on the iPhone, measuring in at 4.5 inches, rather than 3.5 inches. It also has fifty per cent higher resolution, making it clearer and brighter. Finally, the LG has faster maximum data speeds, meaning quicker downloading and faster opening of web pages. Not a bad package.

The iPhone has its own advantage though. The biggest of which is the potential internal storage. Depending on which model you buy, the iPhone comes with up to 64 GB of internal memory, the Spectrum with only 4 GB, that's a big difference in the amount of music, photos, data and games you can store on your device. You get a lot more talk time on the iPhone, which averages fourteen hours of talk time per battery charge cycle as opposed to just eight on the LG. That means a lot less phone charging to do. The iPhone runs a newer version of Bluetooth too, coming equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 rather than the older 3.0 version on the Spectrum. For users who frequently connect to Bluetooth devices (such as hands free), this means faster data transfer and that your phone uses less battery power when connecting to these devices. Finally, the iPhone is a lot smaller. It's ten per cent thinner and forty per cent smaller in general than the LG, which makes it a lot more portable...

Which One Should I Buy?!

It really is a tough choice, because these are both great phones and have their own unique advantages. In the end, we choose the extra power of the LG Spectrum, although we're very tempted by the extra storage space on the iPhone...
