Samsung Galaxy S II 5 Stars

« Back to reviews Samsung Galaxy S II

Look and feel

Lovely-looking handset with sharp edges, a correlated pattern on the back and a wonderfully vibrant 4.3-inch display.

Ease of use

Improved user experience from the tweaked TouchWiz UI. Android users will get to grips with the handset easily.


A dual-core chip, eight-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, A-GPS and plenty of ‘hubs’ for downloading media content.


A really fast phone that does an excellent job all round. A true smartphone.

Battery life

Despite having so many features on offer, the Samsung Galaxy II, still managed to run all day on a battery charge. Average users should be able to charge every other day.

That dual-core chip makes the handset really fast.
Photography fans will notice the lack of a dedicated shutter key.
