Review: Samsung Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch is the best Sprint Android phone of 2011
3 October 2014
Excerpt: It’s been awhile since I reviewed an Android device, so let’s jump right to the point. The is the best Android phone of 2011. At least for another week (maybe less). We often joke that new Android phones come out every week, but next week happens to be special. Google and Samsung are ...
Conclusion: Our main complaint about the S2 is the build. It’s doesn’t feel premium. Other than that, this device is indeed worthy of being Samsung's flagship device. Combining top-notch connectivity with one of the best screens available on a smartphone, and backed by a powerful dual-core processor and 1 GB of...
Pros: Glorious screen, thin body, great performance, Good battery performance, Fast Exynos processor coupled with a good Mali-400 GPU, HDMI out via MHL, Good camera/video mode
Conclusion: It’s a fantastic phone that has been cleverly created to stay relatively up-to-date in the near-future, with a high-speed dual-core processor, wireless syncing to your computer and the very latest version of Android.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is an excellent smartphone. If you're in an LTE area and are in the market for a new phone, go get one. The Super AMOLED Plus display is livin' large here, and we enjoy it despite the old school resolution.
Pros: Extremely fast LTE speeds, colorful display, good battery life by LTE standards.
Cons: AT&T's LTE coverage footprint is in its infancy, 800 x 480 resolution is getting old.
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.
Conclusion: If you held off from buying the Samsung Infuse 4G to experience Super AMOLED Plus goodness, you’ll be smiling from ear to ear knowing that the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II is by far the best thing to come around from Sammy’s camp on the airwaves of the carrier.
Pros: Ridiculous fast performance all around, Deep & saturated colors with its Super AMOLED Plus display, Shoots detailed photos & videos, Razor thin construction
Conclusion: It’s not really a surprise to us that the Samsung Epic 4G Touch is one of the best Android phones you can buy. We felt that the Galaxy S II kind of set the bar back when we took a look at it in May, and the Epic 4G Touch retains all that we liked from the Galaxy S II and made some needed...
Pros: Amazingly fast performance all around, High quality camera and camcorder with 1080p, Good call quality and battery life, 4.5” Super AMOLED Plus is easy on the eyes, Just 9.6mm thin and 4.5oz light
Cons: WVGA display resolution, resulting in 206 ppi, No dedicated camera key and small volume rocker, TouchWiz doesn’t hurt the phone’s performance, but we could do without it
