Samsung Galaxy S2 review

 

Dual-core power, beautiful screen - the Galaxy S II is the kind of sequel we like

Super-fast reaction times ; Slim design ; Ridiculously clear screen ; Clear call quality ; 1080p video recording

Flimsy back cover ; Poor keyboard layout ; Samsung Apps portal

You only need to look at the disparity between the things we liked and things we didn't to see what this phone is all about – and if we're honest, some of those dislikes wouldn't have made it into most phone reviews, but we didn't want it to look...

Samsung Galaxy S2 review

 

Samsung Galaxy S2 Review: The S2 offers an exciting batch of features, from a super repsonsive 4.3-inch touchscreen to a generous 8-megapixel camera

Glorious screen, thin body ; Decent battery performance ; Good camera/video mode

Feels plasticky ; Can't play some Tegra games

Our main complaint about the S2 is the build. It’s doesn’t feel premium and considering it will set you back close to £500 on pre-order, this isn’t good enough.

Samsung Epic 4G Touch review

 

4G comes to a phone that could beat the Samsung Galaxy S2

Brilliantly clear screen ; Long lasting ; Fast processor ; Thin and light ; Ample storage

Not as many bundled apps ; No extra app stores ; No camera button ; Slow 4G ; Expensive with no contract

Samsung Galaxy S II review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S II is a serious smartphone. It has everything, at least on paper. But just because a phone comes fitted with the latest version of the Android operating system, a dual core processor and a size of screen you could you could pop on...

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...

First Look: Samsung Galaxy S II review

 

Hits just about every point on the spec sheet

Plastic build might be a complaint

There’s a lot that needn’t be wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S II that appears to be once you pick it up. While the aesthetics and ergonomics are just something that you’ll have to live with the pay off is the knowledge that you’ve got something of...

Samsung Galaxy S2 review

 

With attractive Android skinning and a good array of widgets, many of which are resizable, the Samsung Galaxy S II lends itself to plenty of user customisation too.

Nine months might be an eternity in smartphone development, but the Galaxy S II still holds its own very well against more recently released devices. While its price has fallen since its launch, Samsung’s handset is still an expensive option.

Samsung Galaxy S2 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S2 crams a gorgeous display, lightning-fast processor and powerful camera into one of the slimmest, lightest smart phones we've ever had the pleasure to hold. The Android operating system could be more user-friendly, but it's never...

Beautiful 4.3-inch screen ; Insanely slim and light ; Very fast ; Great camera ; Attractive design ; Endless features and customisation options

Filled with app bloatware ; Menus are confused in places ; Not as user-friendly as HTC and iPhone rivals

Samsung Galaxy S II Review

 

Fast, powerful, with dazzling design and great battery life, the Galaxy S II is an irresistible Android handset

Samsung has pulled out all the stops with the Galaxy S II i9100. It’s squeezed its best-quality 4.3-inch screen, an 8MP camera and a super-fast dual-core processor into a surprisingly slim case. In fa
