Searching for the best smartphone for 2011? Look no further – you’ve just found it. It’s the Samsung Galaxy S II (Samsung Galaxy S 2 / Samsung i9100). Whether it’s good sound quality you’re looking for, astonishingly colorful display, 1080p full HD capabilities, easy browsing, rich media and entertainment, or simply a phone that looks awesome, you’ll find it all in the Samsung Galaxy S II.
The Galaxy S II has a wide 4.3″ screen, with the Super AMOLED Plus technology. Although it doesn’t have the highest resolution available to date, the Super AMOLED Plus display makes up for it with vivid, clear colors. The phone’s width might take a bit to get used to, but all in all it’s the most compact and slim phone out there. The Galaxy S II is only about 8.49mm deep – almost 1mm less than the iPhone 4. Additionally, the phone weighs only 116g, which is amazing, considering what it can do.
To make sure everything runs smoothly, the Galaxy S II is equipped with a 1.2GHZ dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. Even when many CPU-demanding applications run at once, there is still no noticeable lag. Coupled with the wide, high-quality screen and the exact touch interface, this makes browsing a real treat. Samsung has optimized the power consumption of the device, and the battery lasts for a whole day of extensive use, or about 2 days of “normal” use (phone calls and some media).
If you’re concerned about the multimedia abilities of such a small device, don’t be. The Galaxy S II features two cameras: a front-facing 2MP camera, and a high-quality 8MP camera with LED flash. The back camera indeed delivers the goods, with highly-detailed quality photos, and switching between the two cameras is easy and fast. If you enjoy taking movies, you’ll love the 1080p full HD video recording and playback capabilities. The movies you take are just amazingly real, and the internal 16GB memory (can be extended to 32GB via a micro SD card) can save about an hour and a half of full HD recording.
As any Samsung Galaxy S II review will tell you, the Galaxy S II is a definite buy. Not only does this phone look chic and elegant, Samsung squeezed a lot of good things into its compact casing. The fast processor, high-resolution camera, full HD video support, and cutting-edge communication protocols make sure that the Galaxy S II will be a prime phone even a year from now.
