    Does iphone have better connectivity than Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch?

    I'm new to smartphones and sparing what time I can to climb the steep learning curve. Any helpful info about the problem I'm experiencing will be appreciated!

    • I'm running an app to process credit card charges. The location I run charges from has not changed.
    • My carrier is Sprint. The data plan has not changed.

    When I had an iphone, the app worked speedily with never a failed transaction. But unfortuantely, I didn't care for other aspects of that phone, so I switched to the Samsung.

    Now, the app is slow: I often have to sign in twice because the first one doesn't go through, and processing is noticeably slower and even times out about 30% of the time.

    Since everything else is the same, I'm thinking it's the hardware, and I'll need to go back to the iphone for trouble-free running of this app.

    Please share your experience/knowledge--TIA!

    What app are you using?

    Thanks! I didn't realize what I was getting myself into by finally getting a smartphone, though I guess eventually I'll adjust! ;-)

    I'm using GoPayment by Intuit.

    Just check if going on wifi makes any difference. If so it may be your network data link needs checking.
    A quick DIY is to take out sim and battery. Leave for 10minutes for any residual memory to leak, then replace and reboot.

    There appear to be a few people unhappy on Google Play (formerly known as the Market) having problems with the Android version of this software.

    It may be the iPhone version is better developed and the Android version needs some bugs sorting.

    Some are suggesting an app called Square is more useful and reliable. If you want to continue using GoPayment, maybe an email or phone call to the developer with your problem may help to solve it.

    greenman, I don't have wifi access at my office.

    stonkr, I expect that with the apple hegemony, that version is better developed. I'd hoped the android version was at least reasonably functional.

    Financially, gopayment is a better choice for me than square. I've talked with Intuit a couple times, with no improvement. I'm sure the android universe is more challenging to work with, but they seem to have more 'will' than 'way' when it comes to making the app work well.

    Your S2 should be better than your iPhone, really.

    It would appear initially that it's the Android version of the app that's causing the bother, rather than the phone.

    If it's a business choice and you need that app, you may be better with the iPhone for the time being.
