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.
Excerpt: When Samsung introduced its trio of Galaxy S II phones this fall, its initial offering for AT&T was a little weak. It "only" had a 4.3-inch screen, while its Sprint and T-Mobile siblings had a 4.5-inch display.
Summary: Not too long ago, we took an in-depth, hands-on look at the unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. At the time, the phone wasn't available in the US, so we weren't able to show you a hands-on video of a US version of the phone.
Pros: 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Thin, Lightweight
Excerpt: The question every manufacturer of a non-Apple smartphone on AT&T has to answer is “why buy this over an iPhone?” For Samsung and most other Android handset makers, the answer is a big, bright screen, fast speeds, and all the Google integration you could want.
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
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.
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.
