Summary: 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.
Conclusion: As different from the original Galaxy S as it's possible to get. The horrible lag of the orignal phone is gone, the handset looks great - albeit cloned from an Iphone - and it's one of the best phones we've used. It has some issues, but they are minor and can be solved with a few simple tweaks. µ
Pros: Thin, light, huge screen, good battery life, lag-free, camera.
Cons: Not as fast a web browsing as the HTC Sensation., Samsung's Touchwiz interface is still dreadful.
Conclusion: To keep the handset running, a 1650mAh battery provides power. That’s one of the highest-rated we’ve seen so far, but still it did not quite manage a full day’s usage for us. Par for the smartphone course.
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S II LTE packs in all the features found in the 3G version with the added ability to connect to a 4G network for fast network speeds. This version has a beautiful Super AMOLED Plus display and good camera and video quality.
Excerpt: As their flagship phone for 2011, the Galaxy S2 from Samsung is one sexy smartphone. With the subtle sophistication that we've come to expect from this Korean company, Samsung's latest offering gives users a frustration-free multitasking experience in a sleek, compact package.
