You are misunderstanding quite a lot about technology here, but it's okay, I will walk you through it, and then you will understand.
First, you overstate your case, no one is "1-2 years" ahead of anyone in this market technology wise, but we can ignore that one.
Your excited. You were looking for emphasis. I understand.
The main thing you are missing here is that "technology" is not just a list of stuff that's in the phone. Good networking technology is not about whether it has 3G or 4G, it's about overall network performance and efficiency. It's not about whether it uses Wireless N versus Wireless G, it's again about overall performance and how the phone does the job that the consumers want it to do.
Secondly, even when it comes to the individual parts and assessment of those parts in isolation from the overall phone, it's again about performance and usability, not specs and numbers. For instance, gimmicky things like Haptic feedback or a Swipe keyboard that only appeal to a small group of consumers and actually get in the way of other consumers, are a net *negative*. This is actually "bad technology" (to use the simple terms you use).
Sure Samsung has good processors, but Apple's processors running at the same speed, run rings around them in terms of performance. The latest Samsung phone may have a faster processor than the latest Apple phone, but if it doesn't actually perform any faster, then it's not any better is it? Apples phones also get twice the graphic performance out of the same processor speed as a Samsung phone, so overall a Samsung phone *has* to be over two times faster just to compete with iOS.
Finally, on your list of specs that you think proves "better technology" you include things that Apple is not even considering implementing in their devices because they have already decided they are inferior user experiences. Apple is never going to put a superAMOLED screen in their phone because it simply isn't as good as the one they currently use. Apple isn't going to make their screens bigger, because they don't like using bigger screens and value a smaller phone more than they do copying their competitors. These kind of differences are more about different approaches to phone technology altogether and are not comparable.
There. Now don't you feel better? have you calmed down now? There is a good explanation for all of your points if you understand what technology is and how these things all work. I'd suggest taking a day off, and reading some books about technology so that you won't get so excited next time you misunderstand the issues.
