The iPhone 4S is facing some stiff competition from a lot of manufacturers right now. If you’re getting bored with Apple and you want to sell old iPhone, then you’ll have plenty of choices.
Back then, there were no direct competitors to the iPhone, only followers. While Android has great operating software, they only made great strides when the Ice Cream Sandwich came out. Now, other phones like HTC’s One series are getting praise all over the web.
It’s time to take a look at these phones. You’ll just want to sell your iPhone 4S for one of these phones.
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been out since the fourth quarter of 2011, but it’s still very good, and it bears the title of being the first Android phone to carry Ice Cream Sandwich.
It’s truly a futuristic phone in many ways. Aside from Ice Cream Sandwich, you’ll notice that the Galaxy Nexus doesn’t have any buttons underneath the screen. All the buttons have been transferred to the screen.
The screen is large, measuring 4.65 inches, giving you ample room to surf the net, watch videos, and do everything you want. With an incredibly sharp HD resolution of 1280 by 720p, you won’t find anything better. Adding to that is the Super AMOLED display, which delivers incredible contrast.
The only probable downside to this phone is the 5 megapixel camera, but on a bright note, it still delivers quality pictures.
2. Nokia Lumia 900
Nokia desperately needs something to get people buying their phones again. Their own smartphones that carry the Symbian OS haven’t been faring well in the U.S. market, so they partnered with Microsoft to create Nokia Windows Phones, and the results are astounding.
Right now, the best offering they have is the Lumia 900, released this April. It runs on the latest version of Windows Phone, which is 7.5, or nicknamed Mango. It’s a totally different OS from Android and iOS. Social media is deeply integrated, and there are plenty of other features you’ll find familiar if you happen to be a Windows desktop user.
It has a large 4.3 – inch AMOLED screen. It also has ClearBlack display and Gorilla Glass for added protection.
To compete with other smartphones, it has 4G LTE and an 8 megapixel camera. It doesn’t hurt to stand out with funky colors too. The blue probably fits the Lumia 900 the best
3. HTC One X
HTC is back with a vengeance with their One series of smartphones. All of these phones are loaded with Ice Cream Sandwich, and they all have HTC’s Sense interface.
To coincide with HTC’s use of Ice Cream Sandwich, they’ve also revamped, or rather simplified, the Sense interface. It’s very easy to navigate, and it’s a great direction to where HTC’s aesthetics are going.
The One X is the best Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone HTC has right now. It’s got 1280 by 720p HD resolution with a screen size of 4.7 inches. It also has an 8 megapixel camera and NFC capabilities.
These three smartphones are probably the ones that will make you sell your iPhone 4S right now. Check them out and see how they perform.
