Samsung Galaxy S II (T-Mobile) review - huge screen, 1080p HD video for the win
20 October 2011
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile USA is a large, wonderful device. It is based upon the global edition of the GS2 that I reviewed some time ago, but a few of the original's components have been swapped out or upgraded - mostly to good effect.
Pros: Huge and colorful display, thin design, very fast, great reception, 1080p HD video, large battery
Cons: Boring design, large pixels on the screen, not the best low light focusing
Summary: AT&T subscribers now have two stellar smartphones to choose from at $199: The Galaxy S II and the iPhone 4S. The S II has a bigger Super AMOLED Plus display packaged in a lighter design than Apple's handset. It also offers a great camera and one of the fastest processors inside a smartphone, plus a highly customizable interface.
Summary: Of the new crop of superphones on T-Mobile's network, the $229 Samsung Galaxy S II is the most compelling. Not only does it serve up bleeding-edge performance and feature a lovely Super AMOLED Plus display, it also offers incredible endurance.
Pros: Blazing performance, Gorgeous screen, Excellent 8-MP camera, Fast 4G Data, Long battery life, Load speaker
