  • Samsung Galaxy S II review

    More importantly, Samsung\'s new 4.3-inch handset feels better in the hand than the Arc, thanks to its intelligently curved sides that provide a comfortable and assured grip. The textured rear cover also feels good to the touch, and should withstand nicks and scratches a lot better than the original Galaxy S\' backplate, though don\'t expect its featherlight construction to contribute much to the phone\'s overall rigidity. That will be provided b...

    Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy S II. When your displays, chips and memory are found in the flagship devices of OEMs around the world, you have to expect consumers will demand more from the hardware that bears your brand. The Galaxy S II (aka Galaxy S 2 or GSII) has even more to live up to: the original Galaxy S spawned several carrier variants that helped it become the best-selling Android smartphone in the US last year, and positioned Sa...

    Samsung builds well on the success of the original Galaxy with a fast, attractive and fully featured phone, but one that requires a lot of juice to run....

    Pros: Lightning-fast performance ; Super AMOLED Plus is fantastic ; Camera is amongst the best we`ve seen ; TouchWiz 4.0 has some neat shortcuts

    Cons: Battery life is disappointing ; Video-out requires a separate adapter

    Verdict: If we put our concerns about the battery life to one side, this review would conclude by us naming the Galaxy S II as our favourite phone of the year, so far. The combination of the spectacular screen, the slick performance, its connectivity and......

    The Samsung Galaxy S II has sold in record numbers worldwide and millions of users must`ve cheered the news of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update rolling out. The latest OS from Google is a new lease of life for the Galaxy S II - but desserts are served at the end of the meal. It`s an opportunity for the S II to finish with a flourish as it makes room for the much-anticipated new flagship. Ice Cream Sandwich, or ICS for short, improves the...

    Update: We`ve updated our review to reflect the software update on the Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich - and to include the changes found in the recent 4.0.4 update as well. The Samsung Galaxy S2 - or Samsung Galaxy S II, as it`s also known - is the phone the Korean firm deems the successor to its best smartphone so far. And with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, super-slim chassis and feather-light innards, it`s easy to see why....

    Pros: Super-fast reaction times, Slim design, Ridiculously clear screen, Clear call quality, 1080p video recording,

    Cons: Flimsy back cover, Poor keyboard layout, Samsung Apps portal,

    Verdict: We have to drop the score of this phone as it`s simply ageing now and is bettered by the S3 - but rest assured, with ICS it`s still a stunning phone....
