Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II - The Best Android Yet!

 

The Galaxy S II has been one of those handsets that the mobile community has been craving for. Sure we have the iPhone 4, but S II was, as far as I was concerned, to be the next best thing or the alternative for those with lower budgets. A few weeks...

The Galaxy S II, although officially available for Rs. 32,490 (16GB), is also available, in some locations, for about Rs. 30,000. The fact that the device performs quite seamlessly and is priced rather reasonably, impressed me. When compared to similar...

Epic 4G Touch Review

 

Epic 4G Touch Review - This very detailed review of the Epic Touch 4G covers the pro and cons of Sprint new phone based on the Galaxy S2 platform

Expert review by:

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 (U.S. Cellular)

 

The popular Samsung Galaxy S II makes its way to U.S. Cellular.

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...

Samsung Galaxy S II ICS review: Sugar coated

 

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...

Samsung Galaxy S II (U.S. Cellular)

 

With the rapid-fire release of one smartphone after another, it's easy for once-great phones to quickly become obsolete. Luckily, the Samsung Galaxy S II is one device with staying power, and its appearance on U.S. Cellular's network is a slam dunk.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has a large, beautiful 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a great 8-megapixel camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 16GB built-in storage

U.S. Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S II has a slower network. It's significantly pricier than other handsets in the carrier's lineup

With venerable specs, including a terrific camera and large, beautiful screen, the Samsung Galaxy S II is holding true to its claim to fame as the everyman's high-end Android phone.

Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket review: Aiming for the stars

 

We have the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket all set on the launch pad. Announced together with the HTC Vivid, the smartphone is among the first LTE enabled devices, compatible with AT&T's all new LTE network. The smartphone is certainly a welcome...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 HSUPA support ; LTE network connectivity ; 4.52" 16M-color Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution ; Android OS v2.3.5 with TouchWiz 4 launcher ; 1.5...

No dedicated camera key ; No NFC support out of the box (a future update should address this issue) ; WVGA screen resolution is not on par with the rest of the competition in this class

With the addition of an LTE enabled Galaxy S II to the U.S., Samsung has literally a version for every possible taste out there. The Galaxy S II Skyrocket however, is clearly the best equipped for the future with its spanking new radio on board.

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.
