The iPhone 4S - not the rumored "iPhone 5" - was revealed this week. Apple fanatics are still predictably going ga-ga over the new iPhone, but not everyone's been bitten by the Apple bug. Here are nine comparable, high-end devices we like just as much - or more - than the iPhone 4S.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is a media-centric Android smartphone with an 8 megapixel digital camera and LED flash that can capture full 1080p HD video.
