none to put you off it

A few weeks ago I was contacted by my mobile phone provider who made me an offer that I could not refuse. No, seriously, I’m not talking gangster rap here, it really was an offer that even I thought was a bargain. The package they offered had everything in it, as many SMS as I could handle with a...

As upgrade time reared it’s head once more I decided it was just about time to forget about the low to mid range phones and cheaper contracts and go for something top of the range. While for many top of the range automatically equates to the iPhone, I’m a little different and have a huge dislike...

My phone contract with Orange came to an end way back in April. At that time I wasn’t really ready to sign up to a new contract as I didn’t know exactly what I wanted in a phone. The HTC had been a lot of hassle for me and I certainly did not want to spend £30 odd on something I barely liked. My...

Back is a little flimsy, sometimes freezes

Introduction When my Blackberry contract ran out in November 2012, I knew that I wanted an iPhone style touchscreen for my next mobile but couldn't afford to pay iPhone prices. After a little searching around I decided to go for the Samsung Galaxy S2. I got mine through Carphone Warehouse for £20...

“The Supreme Phone”

Awesome screen, overall a masterpeice

Battery Life

I have generally kept my contracts to a maximum of £15 and had decent phones during the time, but I never really splashed out on getting one of the best phones around the time. I won't go into the mission into actually receiving this phone from T-Mobile, as that is another story for itself, and...

Difficult to see in bright sunlight

I've had this phone just over two years now and I still love it. The techie bit The Samsung Galaxy S II was first released in May 2011 and runs the Android operating system. It has a touch screen and its overall dimensions are 4.93" (H) x 2.60" (W) x 0.33" (D). It's weighs a little over 4 oz. 800...

I don't like it's shape

Oh Samsung Galaxy S II, dreamed of you for so long :D. ~Exterior~ Let's start with the exterior of the phone, the things I like and dislike. Possitioning of the buttons and plugs: There is a big home button beneath the screen, I like this a lot, because for example in S III the home button is...

Battery life is very poor

Over the years I've had every type of phone you can think of. From the "brick" to the flip to the slide, to the touch to the blackberry. You name it I've had it. My contrract was coming to an end and now it was time for me to "get with it" and get myself a smartphone. To be honest I didn't have...

I honestly couldn't wait till my contract was up for renewal to get this phone. I've never wanted an Iphone, but was instantly drawn to this phone. I now totally understand why it was voted phone of the year in 2011. I had the Samsung Galaxy S2 in black for six months, but due to a 'common...

The size makes it difficult to store safely

In February this year my wife (Sue) upgraded her old Nokia contract phone to a new Galaxy SII with O2. It was a simple choice when her contract ran out to move from an old archaic phone to a modern android design. In fact apart from the upfront fee of £80 everything else was relatively simple...

EVERYTHING....better than an iphone in my opinion

Battery Life (or lack of one) is so annoying

Ok...so I am a bit of a snob when it comes to phones, but I am not a tech head. I like the latest and greatest! Since my first contract at 18, I found I quickly get bored of phones and constantly have two contracts going on because I have upgraded early to the next best thing. This makes my bank...

Price.. but no more than any other smartphone.

Well, I'll start my review by stating this is my first smartphone, so I can't compare to any I've actually owned before, though I did look at a LOT before deciding on this phone. It's only been out a short while and so I've not had it very long, but I've had a play with enough of it to write a...

For a number of years now I have been a firm fan of Apple and their products, purchasing every iPhone that has been released including the iPhone 4. I am always amazed at them and never thought I could be persuaded into buying a different type of phone, but how wrong was I? My friend purchased...

I finally managed to get a contract phone 3 months ago and this was my phone choice. After much deliberation, about a years worth, this phone came out and it ticked all the right boxes. The phone looked good, it was fast, it had the latest android software, in-built memory and tons more. So I...

None..

I "inherited" the Samsung Galaxy S2 two months ago, It had been my husbands contract phone, but he was due for an upgrade - so it is now mine. I have to say, although this phone is 2 years old, it is like brand new, my husband has kept it in a case, so the screen and case are in perfect condition...
