Samsung Galaxy s 2 pros & cons Review with images

AdvantagesThis phone is amazing. Android gingerbread OS is great and doesn't freeze that much.

DisadvantagesBattery life sucks. If you run multiple applications you better close them.

"This a great phone. Samsung did good job for this. From it's latest Operating Sytem, downloads from the Google Play is amazing and faster than I thought. If you have bad connection with your data services provided by your carrier, WIFI capability/ option will be a great help. The graphics are better than the Samsung Epic. Speaking of battery life, ugh! It's just that the battery drains faster. If you always stream music and videos via ..." Read review

Very smart phone

AdvantagesLight, sleek and easy to use

DisadvantagesBattery life could be better

"...I was attracted to the Samsung Galaxy as it promised the same features for a fraction of the cost. The phone itself is very sleak and much lighter than the newest iphone weighing only 116 grammes despite being bigger in dimension. The screen is large and fills almost the whole front of the phone, which is great for web surfing etc. It is a touch screen system with a few additional to support commonest functions, such as get you back to the home page, ..."

Samsung Galaxy SII Excellent, elegant super fast smart phone!!!

AdvantagesSuper fast, slim and easy to use, really good to watch videos and movies

DisadvantagesBit power hungry so battery life is ok but not great!!!

"...using the application given by Samsung and also you have the data cable as well if you prefer to do it that way. I would definitely recommend it to you. But one thing I have to say is that it is power hungry but it has a reasonable battery life. Also you can extend it by reducing the screen brightness and use power saving modes. so overall it's a really good friend to have with you over the other phones in the market. ..." Read review

A phone with all the features

AdvantagesThe Android OS, Easy to use, good camera

DisadvantagesDoes not get OS updates that fast

"...a launcher named Touchwiz from Samsung and it have some good features and some good apps. Unfortunatly you can't uninstall the ones that you don't use.It is really fast and easy to start using the phone. When you start it for the first time there is a guide which helpes you configuring it. After that you have access to your e-mail, facebook, twitter etc.The worst thing about the phone is in my opinion the PC-connection software ..." Read review

Too many irritations and issues

Advantagesnice screen, good camera (if it's not buzzing)

Disadvantagesrubbish battery, laggy frozen screen, charging issues, buzzing noise,

"Obviously this review is written many months after this phone was released onto the world at large. I was far from the first wave of people to get this phone and I am almost due an upgrade, so I can say from genuine experience (1 year and 9 months of it to be exact) that it is, or at least has been for me, a pain to own. I loved the phone to begin with and thought it was both the bees knees and the cats pyjamas. I don't recollect exactly how long ..." Read review

Not quite out of this galaxy, but its pretty darn close

Advantagesprice, call quality

Disadvantagescheap plasticy feel

"...3.2 out of the box), Samsung have skinned android with TouchWiz 3.0 which give you a very different experience to other phones. They have added several features, and one of the first ones you will notice is the picture lock screen which you can customize and simply have to swipe to unlock. Another key feature of TouchWiz is that you can organize the app drawer ie the screen that shows all the apps you have installed. You can add or remove pages to ..." Read review

AdvantagesFast and smooth functionality, wide choice of apps, nice design, good camera, loud speakers

DisadvantagesBattery lasting time

"Packaging and equipment In the package I found a presentable headset, data cable, phone charger, and of course, the phone itself.

Design Samsung Galaxy S II handset features an ultra-solid design, large screen and ultra slim and eye-catching design. Device dimensions are: 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.49 millimeters. As already was possible to predict, this phone ..." Read review

Samsungs Best Smart Phone

AdvantagesSmart thin, bright amoled screen, great video quality

DisadvantagesToo big if you have small hands

"I've had several of the Samsung models and this is by far my favourite yet. It's sleek it's smart and most importantly extremely thin and lightweight. The screen is bright and video and photos show up very well on this model thanks to it's bright HD 1080p video quality. The phone allows you to open multiple websites AND run several apps at the same time. The phone has alot of memory, personally i've managed to install around ..." Read review

Impressive mobile... I kid you not!

AdvantagesSilky fast. lovely screen. great background animation. Loves the net.

DisadvantagesShort battery if you play a lot. Feels fragile cos it`s so thin. Voice hole in wrong place?

"...some kind of technology that Samsung somehow nicked from aliens! I gave it 4 stars only because 5 in my view is perfect, and nothing is perfect- Yet! The Samsung Galaxy S 2 comes close though. ..." Read review

expierence the samsung galaxy s2

AdvantagesExcellent 8mp camera and large screen. Phone has the most up to date features around.

DisadvantagesTouch sensitive and very fast. Takes a while to find your way around.

"...have recently purchased the new samsung galaxy s2. In my opinion I think it is the best all round mobile phone on the market right now. I have mine on contract which meant the phone was free. I was quite surprised at this as the phone was new out and all the other top five phones in its class you had to pay at least twenty-five percent of the phones total cost before you got started. Once home the phone was easy to set up and within minutes I had ..." Read review

Samsung Galaxy S2 is pretty much awesome.

AdvantagesGreat camera,

DisadvantagesBattery life, freezes

"I've had this phone for a little over a year and I've only had one problem with it, and that was that it wouldn't turn on, but it turns out that I messed up the battery by myself. In my opinion, this phone beats the other Galaxy's that are out there, because it's smaller and still does the same things as the other ones. It lets you have plenty of applications, you can add in your own SD card for more storage, it has a great camera, texting options, ..." Read review

Best Phone on the market at present

AdvantagesIce cream sandwich, good reception, bluetooth, wifi, apps, games, books

Disadvantagespoor battery life

"This is in my opinion the best phone on the market at present time. It has lots of features, the new ice cream sandwich operating system is brilliant and very easy to use. The camera quality is excellent even in the dark. The phone has lots of features and the bluetooth and wifi quality is excellent. The phone allows you to expand the memory inside and it already has 16GB onboard memory. I have a 16GB Sandisk MicroSDHC Class 10 which is very quick ..." Read review

Samsung GALAXY S II Review with images

AdvantagesScreen, Battery Life, Camera, Video, Processor

DisadvantagesSize of handset

"The Samsung galaxy S2 is the successor to the successful Samsung Galaxy Ace. All I can say is that Samsung have done a good job with this. What really caught my eye with the S2 is when you first open the box you will notice how Slim and thin the smartphone is and how comfortable it feels holding it in your hands. It was in fact Samsung's thinnest smartphone when it was released. What I also liked was the new 4.3 inch AMOLED Plus Display screen. ..." Read review

Samsung Galaxy S2 is, overall, THE best phone on the market now

AdvantagesLarge, crisp screen; fast OS; excellent features; Beautiful design

DisadvantagesPoor battery life; no camera button on phone; 'cheap' plastic casing

"I have had the Samsung Galaxy S2 now for only a few days, but already feel well informed enough on it's overall performance that I am justified in writing this review. First impressions of the phone were the huge size - it quite took me aback when it arrived in it's tiny box. The phone is also very slim, measuring in at just 8mm, making it thinner than it's main competitor - the i-phone 4. The Samsung is also longer and wider than the i-phone, with ..." Read review
