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 release of the Samsung Galaxy S II has been met with huge anticipation and for good reason. Following the success of the original Galaxy S there were high hopes for Samsung’s follow-up device. And those hopes have not only been met, they have been easily exceeded.
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...
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: 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.
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”.
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
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S II is better than any other Android smartphone to have hit the market so far. It has everything you could want and will need and each of those functions it more or less excels at.
