Techno Buffalo did a comparison between the fresh iPhone 4 and Google’s own Nexus One. Apple’s new toy definitely has the design on its side, since it’s shiny and resilient, specially thanks to that Gorilla Glass technology used upfront. The camera quality on the device is also better, as the handset comes with a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording at 30 fps.
Nexus One’s camera is also a 5 megapixel unit, complete with autofocus and flash and it’s able to do 800 x 480 video capture. It’s hard to say if iOS 4 or Android 2.2 wins the duel right now, as the Apple platform has the interface and user-friendliness on its side, while Froyo is filled with interesting features, it allows tethering, mobile hotspot features and of course supports the latest Flash player.
The display confrontation is won by the iPhone 4, with its 3.5 inch IPS screen, supporting a 960 x 640 pixel resolution, versus the Nexus One’s 3.7 inch AMOLED screen, supporting a 480 x 800 pixel resolution. Another win for Apple is the presence of the front camera on the iPhone 4, complete with the FaceTime service, while Google’s smartphone lacks any kind of front camera.
We’ll let the video above have its say…
