Excerpt: The Prodigal Successor The Samsung Galaxy S II is the successor to the very popular Samsung Galaxy S. The phone supports a 4.27 inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen that makes visual experience a delightful one. Despite such huge specs, the phone boasts of a slim waistline and is just 8.5 mm thick.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S II – successor of the popular Galaxy S and brand new flagship device from Samsung. Whenever I bought a new device, Samsung has been one of the contenders, but ultimately some things never quite appealed to me, so I ended up either getting HTC or Nokia.
Pros: Awesome display, Ultra slim design, 1080p Video recording, Really fast
Summary: The Android space was dominated by the Galaxy S last year and I expect that this year the entire mobile space will be dominated by it’s successor. The hardware on the Galaxy S II won’t be beaten for quite some time (perhaps until this time next year) only to be matched by the HTC Sensation and maybe...
Excerpt: The original Galaxy S was a fairly impressive device, but this latest reboot takes things to another level, with a dual core processor, AMOLED screen, 8-megapixel camera, over-the-air data syncing and much more, all squeezed into a shockingly slim case.
Summary: I’m going to be recommending the Galaxy S II to friends of mine who want an Android device. I mean if you look at its specs, it just boggles the mind. Sure, the price is steep moment, but everything is like that when it first launches and you’ll find that it will drop once stock becomes readily...
Pros: Insanely good 4.3″ Super AMOLED + display, Snappy 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, Incredibly thin at 8.49mm, Ability to shoot semi-legible 1080p video, 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
Summary: It’s genuinely hard to find fault with the Samsung Galaxy S II. Though Android and Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI still aren’t quite up to the sleek standards of iOS, the hardware on show here makes this not only the greatest Android device we’ve seen so far, but a definite equal for the iPhone 4.
Summary: Is this phone an iPhone killer ? Well, if I was writing for a tabloid newspaper I’d have to say a definite “Yes”. If, however, I’m being realistic I’d have to say “No”. Why ? Because there won’t be just “one iPhone killer”.
Summary: Although it would benefit from a build quality that befits its premium price, that’s the only real complaint we can level at the Samsung Galaxy S II. This is by far the best Android smartphone we’ve seen and anyone currently eyeing up an iPhone 4 should give it some very serious consideration.
Excerpt: Unlike fine wines, mobile handsets don’t tend to get better with age – it’s amazing how quickly a phone that was leading edge can quickly become a bit of a has-been. While this may not have been the case with the original Samsung Galaxy S, we were nonetheless quite pleased to hear that a sequel was...
Cons: Keen photographers will miss a dedicated shutter key
