The Samsung Galaxy S2 is a touchscreen smartphone manufactured by Samsung. This Samsung smartphone is the recent Android superphone to reach market, with 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB RAM combined with Android 2.3. In current era the dual-core race is set to heat up massively over the market, with the HTC Sensation and iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S all set to bring the tech to market too.
The successor to one of the most popular Android handsets to date carries a burden of expectation almost as sizable as its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen. It is thinner, lighter, and faster than the Galaxy S.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 is almost impossibly thin when you pick it up – dimensions of 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5mm mean it’s one of the thinnest smartphones on the market at the moment.
The 3.5mm headphone jack lives on the top of the phone, bucking the lower placement on other 4.3-inch screen phones, and the microUSB slot lives on the bottom.
The screen is gorgeous; the colors are really vibrant, the blacks are impenetrable and it offers great viewing angles and improved outdoors visibility. The video quality of the Samsung SII’s 1080p is pretty good.
The internal memory of the phone is 16 GB expandable with a memory card slot that can take up to a microSD card of 32 GB. The allocation of the internal memory gives only 2 GB to applications and the rest will have to go storage.
But no phone is complete without Apps, especially an Android smartphone. Chances are that your telecom operator or Samsung will factory-install a number of most useful apps including the likes of Facebook, Twitter, e-book reader or more
The Galaxy S II’s onscreen keyboard is terrific, allowing us to get up to a fast typing speed within almost no time at all. And browser performance is superb in terms of speed.
The Samsung S2 makes great use of the gyroscope sensor through some nice display options that the phone owners will find great time impressing their friends
The other element of note is the 8.1 MP camera with single LED flash on the rear
The TouchWiz 4.0 integration can also be found in the Settings menu, where the user can:
-Change the overall font used in the device and download additional ones
-Change the lock screen wallpaper
-Change the display type (standard, dynamic and movie)
