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
Summary: We've been waiting for the US variants for months, and like the international Galaxy S II, Samsung's Epic 4G Touch is the best Android phone available today. The dual-core processor and overall snappy performance will appeal to those seeking a high-end device, while the much-improved TouchWiz 4.0 UI is the perfect transition for someone coming from iOS or moving into the smartphone realm for the first time.
Pros: Dual-core processor is incredibly fast; 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display is beautiful and a nice upgrade from the international version; 1,800 mAh battery allows for a full day of use; TouchWiz 4.0 UI is a huge improvement from past versions.
Cons: All-plastic design may not appeal to everyone; Sprint's poor data speeds as of late impact the performance of the phone's data services.
