17 May 2011
Summary: Samsung's first generation Galaxy S flagship smartphone, and the myriad variants it spawned, helped drive Samsung to the top of the heap in the Android world. It was fast, had a great display, and offered a solid user experience in general.
Pros: Good design, brilliant display, very fast processor, solid 8mp camera with 1080p video recording, good battery life, improved user interface
Excerpt: In 2010, Samsung came to the market in a big way with the Galaxy S series of devices. All products that wore this badge featured similar specs: a 4.0″ Super AMOLED display powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU with 512MB of RAM. We saw the Galaxy S as the Verizon Fascinate, Samsung Captivate, and many others.
Pros: + Extremely thin and light
Cons: - Battery life is below average (can be rectified by overriding automatic brightness)
Summary: The speaker is loud and does not differ from that of Galaxy S. If you liked this parameter in the first Galaxy the second one should also do fine. The vibro is weak and it is not always heard from inside the clothes.
I like the phone without any reservations. Technologically, it is the best offering on the market.
Summary: Here we come with Samsung Gallaxy S II Review, Samsung Gallaxy S II is of the most popular Android handsets to date carries a burden of expectation almost as sizable as its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. It promises to be thinner, lighter, and faster than the Galaxy S that preceded it, while garnishing Android 2.3.3 with a set of TouchWiz customizations that might actually enhance, rather than hinder, the user experience.
Pros: Very good display, Elegant design, TouchWiz 4.0 user interface, High-quality full HD video recordings, Great performance

Excerpt: . This is the final version of the review so now you can get a comprehensive look at all the aspects of the phone. Certain parts from the preview remain unaltered some however were supplemented or extended.
Conclusion: The call quality of the Samsung Galaxy S II is pretty good – the earpiece won’t blow your mind away, but is still strong and pretty clear, something to be expected on such a high-end device. The noise-canceling microphones didn’t disappoint our listeners on the other side, weeding out parasitic noises. We were worried that the 1.2GHz processor will have battery life issues. Samsung has done a good job optimizing the chipset, though.
Pros: Significantly improved Super AMOLED Plus display, The best handset for recording and watching Full HD video, The dual-core Exynos chipset meets and exceeds the benchmarks in its peer group, Future-proof collection of connectivity options, Thin and light
Cons: Design could be a bit more differentiating, Motion sensor-powered gestures could see more practical usage

Excerpt: To say the Galaxy S II has a lot to live up to would be a drastic understatement. Its predecessor, the Galaxy S, was one of the , though it certainly wasn't without its shortcomings (*cough* TouchWiz *cough*). But with an even better display, a slimmer profile, a better camera, and - gasp - a new version of Samsung's custom UI, the Galaxy S II aims to patch over its antecedent's few flaws in addition to mixing in some new magic. So how does it fare?
Excerpt: Samsung Galaxy S II has a spectacular screen and its blacks are impenetrable. I loved the way the blacks popped at me and the viewing angles are truly awesome. It is a qHD screen having a resolution of 960x540 pixels and such high resolution screens are fast becoming norm in the highest end smartphones these days. I was also glad to see that the quality remains the same even when you see it from the sides or top/down unlike other phones.
