Samsung Galaxy S II 4G (Virgin Mobile)

 

Smartphones tend not to age gracefully, but after more than a year and a half since it was first released, the Samsung Galaxy S II has really held up well. It's finally made its way over to Virgin Mobile, in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G. That...

Speedy dual-core processor. Big, vibrant screen. Nice camera. Good call quality

Pricey. Lower-resolution screen

The Samsung Galaxy S II for Virgin Mobile gets you a lot of power and 4G speeds, but it comes at a steep price.

Samsung Galaxy S II 4G (Boost Mobile)

 

Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our evaluation of the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, since that device and the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G for Boost Mobile are almost identical.

The Samsung Galaxy S II 4G sports a large and vivid 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, the phone also runs Android 4.0 and is 4G-capable. Camera quality is also excellent.

Call quality could be better. The device is large and has a plasticky build.

Despite its age, the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G offers solid performance, a vibrant screen, and a great multimedia experience, which makes it the top dog on Boost Mobile.

Samsung Galaxy S II 4G (Boost Mobile)

 

The unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II made its debut more than a year ago. 15 months and all the major carriers later, it's finally arriving on Boost Mobile. 15 months is more like a few years in the smartphone world, so credit should go to Samsung that...

Powerful, dual-core processor. Large, vibrant screen. Solid camera. Good call quality

Pricey. Slower-than-average 4G modem

The Samsung Galaxy S II 4G for Boost Mobile is pricey up front, but it gets you lots of power and inexpensive 4G data.

Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket (black, AT&T)

 

At long last, AT&T is finally rolling out its much-awaited LTE network that promises much faster speeds than its existing "4G" HSPA+ network. (What will AT&T dub its LTE network to differentiate it from HSPA+? 4G Plus?) The carrier promised that LTE...

The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket has a beautiful 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display along with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, an NFC chip, and support for AT&T's LTE network. It ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and has an 8-megapixel camera with...

AT&T's LTE network is only available in a few cities at the time of the Skyrocket's launch, it has a somewhat cheap, plastic feel, and you can't remove bloatware

If you live in an area that gets AT&T's LTE network, we highly recommend the powerful and beautiful Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

Samsung Epic 4G Touch (frost white, Sprint)

 

Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our evaluation of the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II.

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch boasts a large and bright 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. With a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, the Android smartphone is fast and 4G-capable. Camera quality is also excellent

Call quality could be better. The phone is large and has a plastic build

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch offers speedy performance, a beautiful screen, and a great multimedia experience to make it one of Sprint's top Android phones, but its large size won't be for everyone.

Gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display ; Tremendous battery life ; Top-notch performance

The Epic 4G Touch is the first carrier-branded Galaxy S II in the US, and doesn't lose the magic.

Samsung Epic Touch 4G for Sprint: Slim and Speedy

 

The arrival of Samsung's Galaxy S II phones has been a long time coming. We first saw the next generation of Samsung's popular line of Android phones back in February at Mobile World Congress. After many successful months in Europe, the Galaxy S II...

Bright, clear Super AMOLED Plus display ; Superb performance ; Excellent camera

Lots of bloatware/preloaded apps ; Plasticky build

The slim and speedy Samsung Epic Touch 4G is excellent for gaming, Web browsing and watching video, but the plasticky design feels a bit on the cheap side.

Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket with LTE for AT&T doesn't disappoint

 

The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is the fourth Galaxy S II device to hit U.S. carriers, and the fifth one that we have reviewed here at MobileBurn. Though the Skyrocket shares many similarities with the previous models, especially the version carried...

Speed to spare, great display, solid battery life

Plasticky construction, can be large for some, LTE coverage is pitiful

Since it is a bona fide Galaxy S II, the Skyrocket is an impressive performer all-around. It is exceptionally fast in day to day tasks, and has the solid battery life (for Android, anyways) that the Galaxy S II line has come to be revered for. Does it...

Sprint Epic 4G Touch review

Here's the bottom line: The Galaxy S II is easily the fastest, thinnest and lightest Android smartphone you can get. Sprint's first out of the gate in the United States -- the other carriers will follow shortly. And while Sprint appears to have a few...
