```Presumably you want

m1 = Array[x, {2, 2}];
m2 = Array[y, {2, 2}];

And @@ Thread[Flatten /@ (m1 > m2)]

x[1, 1] > y[1, 1] && x[1, 2] > y[1, 2] && x[2, 1] > y[2, 1] &&
x[2, 2] > y[2, 2]

Alternatively,

And @@ (MapThread[Greater, {m1, m2}, 2] // Flatten)

x[1, 1] > y[1, 1] && x[1, 2] > y[1, 2] && x[2, 1] > y[2, 1] &&
x[2, 2] > y[2, 2]

a = {{2, 3}, {4, 5}};

b = {{1, 2}, {2, 3}};

And @@ Thread[Flatten /@ (a > b)]

True

And @@ (MapThread[Greater, {a, b}, 2] // Flatten)

True

=============
I am using mathematica for practical purpose.
I wonder how can I perform Matrix comparison.
For instance:
a={{2,3},{4,5}}; b={{1,2},{2,3}};
a>b
I want the result is True.
But it seems that Mathematica can not recognize it.
I do not know how I can solve it? Are there any additional package to be added?
Can any one with kindness help me?
