Conclusion: Our main complaint about the S2 is the build. It’s doesn’t feel premium. Other than that, this device is indeed worthy of being Samsung's flagship device. Combining top-notch connectivity with one of the best screens available on a smartphone, and backed by a powerful dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM for a super-slick user experience, the Samsung Galaxy S2 is quite simply a marvelous phone.
Pros: Glorious screen, thin body, great performance, Good battery performance, Fast Exynos processor coupled with a good Mali-400 GPU, HDMI out via MHL, Good camera/video mode
Conclusion: Samsung nails the design of this lightweight, easy-to-control Windows Mobile smartphone, but the Saga's poor benchmark test results, sparse software bundle, and middling endurance are significant drawbacks.
Pros: True world phone that roams on GSM networks overseas. Includes full complement of wireless radios. Powerful Opera Web browser.
Cons: Sluggish. Short battery life. No IM client or V Cast support. Nonstandard headphone and interface jacks.
Excerpt: Samsung Galaxy S II / S 2 is never predicted to be one of the kings of smartphone manufacturers, with a few false of start ups at the early beginning. Nobody would suppose the company comes up with new energy and took another step forward, putting the best technologies and developing sophisticated smartphones, and the popular Samsung Galaxy S is the real proof. Now, the successor is made, namely the Samsung Galaxy S II / S 2 .
Conclusion: Unequivocally, the Samsung Galaxy S II is one of the best Google Android smartphones on the market today. It’s incredibly thin, the Super AMOLED Plus screen is simply breathtaking, and it has performance up the wazoo. The only thing that might hold you back is the TouchWiz UI, which isn’t everyone’s bag. That and you know that there is always something nicer in Android land just around the corner.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S II is by far the most hyped device so far this year. I mean who wouldn’t get hyped up over a 4.3″ Super AMOLED + display, 1.2GHz Dual-Core CPU and Quadband 3G supporting every network in Australia at the proper HSPA+ speed of 21Mbit. The Samsung Galaxy S set the benchmark last year and there’s no doubt the Galaxy S II has done the same this year.
Pros: Insanely good 4.3″ Super AMOLED + display, Snappy 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, Incredibly thin at 8.49mm, Ability to shoot semi-legible, Quadband HSPA+ (21Mbit/7.56Mbit) – Works on
Cons: Kies syncing software for your PC, Fairly average loudspeaker, TouchWiz, even though it does the job, is too iPhone-ish, No notification LED!!1! *angry face*, No native micro-HDMI connection
Excerpt: It's the Android device you've been waiting for! Aaron reviews the Samsung Galaxy S II , a high-end smartphone and arguably Samsung's best phone to date. Sporting a 1.2 GHz Exynos dual-core CPU, it offers a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel camera, 2.0-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0, and a 1,650 mAh battery.
Summary: As with the Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, there's a lot to like about U.S. Cellular's version. This $179 device has a gorgeous AMOLED display, speedy processor and a quality camera. However, its lack of 4G speeds makes us feel like we're forcing a race horse to give pony rides at the state fair. Those looking to take advantage of U.S.
