Samsung is making waves again! The successor to the enormously successful Samsung Galaxy S is finally here for all to enjoy. The Samsung Galaxy S II (or Galaxy S2 depending on where you're looking) is a true powerhouse of a smartphone packaged in an exceptionally sleek and lightweight form factor. Considerably thinner than the original Galaxy S and rivals such as the iPhone 4 (8.49mm v 9.3mm), the new Samsung Galaxy S II (internally known as the Samsung i9100) is light (only 117g) and packs the latest version of Android (Gingerbread).
The Galaxy S II boasts a 4.27-inch WVGA (480 x 800) Super AMOLED Plus screen display, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and 1080p full HD video recording, video playback at 30 frames per second and a Dual-Core processor, with each running at a blistering 1.2Ghz. The one feature most people will notice immediately is the drool-inducing screen that will have everyone jealous; the 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen has colors visibly brighter and more vivid than other phones, with better contrast and lower power consumption, superb for both gaming and video watching.
Samsung have also made improvements to the user interface, with four hubs to help you make the most of your Galaxy S II; Social, your chatting life in one place, Readers, Samsung's new ebook reader area, Game, the easiest way to download and play the best games, and Music, with access to over 12 million tracks.
