Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T has earned our Editor's Choice thanks to its combo of a large and beautiful Super AMOLED Plus display, the fastest CPU in a smartphone and snappy HSPA+ 4G data speeds with wide coverage over the US.
Pros: Extremely fast CPU, HSPA+ 4G, super-vivid Super AMOLED Plus display.
Cons: We wish it had a qHD resolution display, average looks.
Conclusion: It’s easy to recommend the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, even if you’ll dread telling your friends your new phone’s full name. It’s incredibly fast, extremely slim and has Samsung’s winning Super AMOLED Plus display.
Pros: Super display, extremely fast, very good camera.
Cons: Large phone, display resolution is lower than we'd like. WiMAX 4G coverage still spotty.
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch is the smartphone equivalent of a runway model. It’s gorgeous to look at. It’s a bit larger than life, yet still maintains a trim figure. And it has a name so long you need to take a gulp of air when you’re done speaking.
Pros: The 1.2 GHz dual-core processor provides standout performance — apps open and close quickly, transitions are smooth and gameplay is great. One of the better smartphone cameras. Big screen is fantastic for games and videos.
Cons: Battery life is a drag. Onscreen keyboard is difficult to type on in portrait mode. Will go in a pocket, but doesn’t exactly “fit” in a pocket. Badly in need of a nickname.
Excerpt: Samsung had unprecedented success last year delivering its Galaxy S line of flagship Android phones to a global stage, and for good reason: it launched as one of the thinnest smartphones in the world, the homegrown 1GHz Hummingbird processor was plenty fast for its day, and the 4-inch Super AMOLED...
Pros: Blazingly fast, Thin and light, Gorgeous display
Cons: Low screen resolution compared to other high-end Android phones on the market, TouchWiz still less attractive than stock UI, Not a global phone (the Photon 4G is, for the same price)
Summary: For those who like their screens big, the $199 Samsung Galaxy II Epic 4G Touch should be at or near the top of your list. Paradoxically, it's both lighter and larger than the Photon 4G, although that phone has a crisper qHD display, world-roaming capabilities, and a slightly faster 4G connection.
Summary: International travelers looking for a powerful unlocked smartphone will find much to like in the $799 Samsung Galaxy S II. Outfitted with a fire-breathing 1-GHz dual-core Samsung CPU and an outstanding camera that shoots full 1080p video, this slim wonder phone is sure to please.
