Samsung Galaxy S2 Smartphone Review

Samsung had a fantastic year in 2010 with their Galaxy S model. Samsung’s goal is, of course, to develop further into the mobile bazaar. The result of Samsung’s efforts is a phone that manages to incorporate pretty all that is at present
And since Samsung itself is one of the world’s main mobile component manufacturers it’s no shock that Samsung once again manages to carry a advanced and high tech phone to Android fans world wide.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 phone is launched from Samsung in India runs on latest Android 2.3 OS. The Samsung Galaxy S2 is motorized by Dual Core Application Processor and 1GB RAM. The Galaxy S2 features 32GB built-in memory, external memory support, an 8 mega pixel camera, HD video playback and recording, NFC, Wi-Fi, HDMI and A-GPS.
You can read out our review of HTC Sensation the arch rival of Samsung Galaxy S2.


One feature that did not change with regards to the preceding model, the Galaxy S, is the appearance of the phone. The Galaxy S2 is about as large as the Galaxy S, but still the S2 has a somewhat bigger screen. Its 0.3” larger than the Galaxy S screen.4
The S2 is a very slim phone. At almost 8.5 millimeters, dimensions - 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5mm, the S2 is the thinnest phone that is out on today’s mobile market. There are no big changes to the appearance except ofcourse for the one on the backside. Where the Galaxy S was soft as the skin of a new born baby, the Galaxy S2 has a rougher backside. This is to make it easier to hold in your hand.

4.3” Super Amoled Plus screen

The screen is 4.3” diagonally, which is an attractive decent size. The screen is a Super Amoled Plus Capacitive screen. Mind the ‘Plus’. Super Amoled Plus is slightly brighter and sharper than the non Plus version of this screen technology. The resolution, however, is still 800×480.
Noteworthy is the fact that the Galaxy S2 makes use of a new chip that renders images in extremely high quality, specifically for the Super Amoled Plus screen. You won’t notice this when looking at standard menu items and icons, but you’ll absolutely notice when watching movies or live games.


The Galaxy S2 Android smartphone runs on a 1GHz dual core processor. It is the Exynos 4210 processor, manufactured by Samsung itself. The first few comparisons have by now been made with Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chip and the Exynos 4210 wins it every time. Not only is the Exynos 4210 very fast all by itself, it also has an incorporated quad core GPU aboard.
It comes with 1GB RAM memory, there is also 16 or 32 GB worth of permanent storage space
Samsung has also not abandoned to incorporate the latest mobile data technology into their innovative high end Smartphone. With the Galaxy S2, it will be possible to have HSPA+ relations, provided that your supplier supports these links. In theory, you could achieve download speeds of 56 Mbit/s and upload speeds of 22 Mbit/s.

8 Mega Pixel Camera

The reverse camera has a very upright 8 mega pixel and it comes with a LED flasher. For most people, an 8 megapixel with LED flasher smartphone camera will be more than enough to craft a few pictures of friends when you are going out and having a good time. It works best when captivating pictures up close.

Speech Control : Vlingo

Android comes with its very own speech credit software these days. But still, Samsung has determined to provide the Galaxy S2 with speech recognition software of its very own: Vlingo.
With Vlingo, you no need to type in order to do searches, send emails, or what have you. Just fire up Vlingo and start talking. Vlingo does a really good job at sympathetic voice instructions. Vlingo can be very handy when you are trying to send a longer than standard email.
In practice, speech recognition software sometimes produces unpredictable results. But advancements in this area are being made.


In summary, we think it is very clear that Samsung’s new high end Smartphone, the Galaxy S2, is going to gust the opposition out of the water. The S2’s computational authority is something the world has never seen. And it’s not just for show either… it really makes for a user responsive interface.
There are other dual core smartphones out there, so that’s nothing new. But other dual core smart phones just don’t perform like the Galaxy S2 does. And that’s even without software that has been particularly built to make use of the S2’s hardware. Things can only get better.
It is hard to contrast Samsung’s Galaxy S2 to other smart phones. There simply isn’t anything like it on the bazaar at this instant. If you’re the kind of Smartphone aficionado that has to have the newest in high tech gadgetry, then the Galaxy S2 is the phone for you!

Well, Technically the Samsung Galaxy S 2 is the great phone, but if your like me and attempt to write letters using a touchscreen keyboard then handsets like the BlackBerry with a great QWERTY keyboard are ideal.

thanx for the alvis,
only problem with touchscreen phones are that you cannot type long letters on them as it is a touchscreen...... this is where mobiles with qwerty keyboard have advantage...

I am waiting for the Galaxy SII to come to the US before I get a new phone. The main things that I am looking forward to are the large screen, the fast dual-core processor, and 4G. All of these things should make movies and shows look amazing! In fact, an app that I use now would be perfect for the Galaxy SII, and that is the DISH Remote Access app. I love this app because it lets me watch live TV on my phone! Being able to watch live TV or recorded shows from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver anywhere I am is fantastic. As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using the app for a long time and it is one of the best apps I have. I encourage anyone and everyone to take a look here to get all the information on starting an account to get your TV Everywhere!

For me, Samsung Galaxy S2 is the best smartphone now. Even Apple released their new iPhone 4s, the specifications of S2 is better than it. I just want to try the touchscreen of both phone, since I know that Apple's touchscreen is so good.
