Samsung Galaxy S II LTE pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

So, it turns out that there was no misprint on the press release. Samsung Galaxy S II LTE is, in fact, both bigger and better than the plain old Samsung

The Samsung Galaxy S II is better than any other Android smartphone to have hit the market so far. It has everything you could want and will need and each

Hugely powerful, TouchWiz 4 doesn't spoil the Android experience, lightweight, fantastic display

Not much unless you are really picky

The Samsung Galaxy S II is better than any other Android smartphone to have hit the market so far. It has everything you could want and will need and each of those functions it more or less excels at. It’s fast, it’s bright, it’s clear and, joy of...

Samsung has, as we reported earlier, launched the Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100), and we've grabbed a hands-on already. Boy is is it a powerhouse. Wrapped

Samsung Galaxy S II video review

 

Its latest and greatest gets our critical eye cast upon it

to the first Samsung Galaxy S smartphone, the Galaxy S II offers plenty to tempt the high-end phone lover. There's a dual-core 1.2Ghz Arm Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM and a choice of either 16GB or 32GB of mass storage.

Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE Review

 

Nearly a year of making its presence known in almost every single corner of the globe, the Samsung Galaxy S II has accomplished its goal by proving itself to be one of the most polarizing smartphones in recent memory. Keeping up with the times, the...

Sharp looking Super AMOLED display ; Above average photos & videos

LTE and HSPA are not usable in the U.S ; Sluggishness with its performance ; No Ice Cream Sandwich

No doubt we take a fancy to seeing a higher resolution display, but in all honesty, you’re better off picking up that other Samsung device, you know, the one they call the Galaxy Nexus. There is no reason to buy this Korean only model, as the unlocked...

Review: Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile

 

T-Mobile scores the best version of the Samsung Galaxy S II with its large display, faster processor, and zippier wireless data radio. But those aren't the only noteworthy features of this superlative smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 Review

 

What Samsung have managed to package together is a dual core processor, and a lot of other goodies in an unbelievably slim and light form factor. While the plasticky feel is a bit of a disappaointment, the performance on offer will simply blow you...

Excellent display, with vivid colours ; Very slim design, and amazingly lightweight ; Android never felt faster! ; Good camera ; Excellent battery life

Plasticky build is a huge disappointment ; TouchWiz 4.0 UI isn't feature rich or polished like the HTC Sense ; Dependence on Kies desktop software is a painful iTunes-esque experience

trim to fit

 

For the price, I don't mind having to hack it up, but looks not so great. Another item probably best purchased locally.

Cheap, thin, protective

Most of the cutouts need to be enlarged to fit the standard Samsung Galaxy SII, and I had to cut a few more to match up with the mic, earbud port, and so forth
