AT&T has a lot of solid Android phones to choose from — is the Samsung Galaxy S II the best of the bunch? And can it compete with the iPhone?

31 October 2011
  • Summary: The Galaxy S II is a worthy upgrade to the original Galaxy S — it’s light, thin, and despite feeling a little chintzy is a very good-looking phone. It works well, though calling AT&T’s HSPA+ network “4G” remains a cruel, cruel joke — we’re holding out for LTE. Thanks to the dual-core processor and upgraded version of Android, I’d recommend the Galaxy S II over the Infuse 4G without reservation, but when you can buy the Atrix for $100 less or the iPhone 4S for the same...
  • Pros: Big, vibrant Super AMOLED Plus display, Super fast processor, Solid camera
  • Cons: Display resolution is too low, "4G" speeds are very slow, Body feels cheap and breakable

The Galaxy S was a huge success, but plenty of other excellent phones have come out since. Does Samsung still make T-Mobile's best phone?

theverge.com
31 October 2011
  • Summary: The Galaxy S II for T-Mobile is exactly what you’d expect from a sequel: it’s faster, bigger, and a bit better put together. However, it’s not the standard-setting Android phone the Galaxy S was a year ago, mostly because competing phones have caught up, and — in some critical areas, like the display — even surpassed what the Galaxy S II brings to the table. It’s clearly one of the three best phones available on T-Mobile, along with the HTC Amaze 4G and HTC Sensation.
  • Pros: Big, bright screen, Excellent cameras, Very fast
  • Cons: Low-resolution display, Terrible speakerphone, Lots of bloatware
