Samsung Galaxy S II Plus review: Golden oldie

 

Samsung has been steadily setting the bar ever higher with each flagship released, and the massive success of the Samsung Galaxy S III and its predecessor, the S II, have catapulted it to the top of the smartphone food chain. And, as is expected in the...

Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support ; 21.1 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.3" 16M-color Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution ; Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX ; 1.2 GHz dual-core...

No dedicated camera key ; Almost identical to its predecessor ; Below average loudspeaker performance ; Pricey at launch

We mentioned at the start that it's the software where the S II Plus will make the most sense over the original Galaxy S II, due in large part to the near-identical hardware of the two devices. However, with Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S II already...

Samsung I9105 Galaxy S II Plus preview: First look

 

It's not the end of the road just yet for the Galaxy S III but it would do well to prepare to pass the torch on. Yet, while the current flagship is coming to terms with mortality, Samsung obviously believes there's still fight left in the old Galaxy S...

Review Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus (i9105P) Smartphone

 

Old made new. Samsung launches a refresh of its successful Galaxy S2 called Galaxy S2 Plus on the market. The 4.3-inch smartphone powered by a swift 1.2 GHz dual-core, updated Android version and NFC support competes against midrange contenders.

High-contrast AMOLED screen, Smooth user interface, Good application and gaming performance, Meticulous workmanship, Micro SD card reader, NFC, Slim, light and well-built: The Galaxy S2 Plus is not at all just a weak refresh that wants to adorn itself...

Fairly high price, Screen's low resolution, Average equipment, With a price difference of only around EUR 100 to the Galaxy S3, the S2 Plus is simply too expensive for our taste. An 800 x 480 pixel screen, 1.2 GHz dual-core, 8 GB storage are the key...

Samsung Galaxy S II Plus Review

 

Thin and light for a mid-range device, Camera takes good photos

Can't really call it an upgrade, 480 by 800 pixel displays are so 2010

First and foremost, there's no denying that the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus is a capable and well-made mid-range smartphone. It has preserved many of the traits that made the 2-year-old Galaxy S II land in the pockets of over 40 million people worldwide,...

Great Card

 

Great card for the price. I have this one in the tablet I bought which came with a free 128GB card, I swapped that out into my Switch and use the 64GB for videos and music on the tablet.
