Summary: As with the Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, there's a lot to like about U.S. Cellular's version. This $179 device has a gorgeous AMOLED display, speedy processor and a quality camera. However, its lack of 4G speeds makes us feel like we're forcing a race horse to give pony rides at the state fair. Those looking to take advantage of U.S.
Pros: Brilliant display, Can upgrade to a new phone in as little as 11 months, Strong performance, Fun built-in camera effects
Cons: Not 4G LTE compatible, Advertising offers appear as notifications, Below-average battery life
Summary: 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 display was a serious dazzler.
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)
