Samsung Galaxy S II 5 Stars
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.
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.
- Look and Feel 4 Stars
- Ease of use 5 Stars
- Features 5 Stars
- Performance 5 Stars
- Battery life 4 Stars
Final verdict: 5 Stars
The best Android handset we’ve seen, the Samsung Galaxy S II does a great job in all areas.
