With the Galaxy S, Samsung produced one of the most popular and impressive Android smartphones to date. These are large boots to fill for its successor, the Galaxy S2, however looking at the specification, it looks more than worthy of taking over from this great phone.
This phone really does sport the very latest technology, and somehow Samsung have manged to fit it all into a chassis that under 9mm in depth. This wafer thin profile means that the phone feel incredibly small when in the palm of your hand, despite the unit housing a large 4.3 inch screen that rivals the HTC Desire HD in terms of size. The screen on this model however does exceed it rivals in terms of the technology on offer. Boasting the new Super AMOLED+ display, this offer a higher contrast ratio to what was on offer previously, along with vastly improved power consumption. The S2 will run on Android Gingerbread 2.3 out of the box, and will have the brands own TouchWiz user interface in operation in its latest 4.0 version. Android not only offers user a wealth of download opportunities, but it also sports Flash support, meaning viewing your favourite websites is enjoyable, especially given the phones excellent connectivity options that include WiFi and 3G.
The Samsung Galaxy S2is a super fast handset thanks to the 1.2Ghz processor that it incorporates. Not only is this one of the largest available in a mobile handset, but it also is a dual core unit, enabling effortless multi tasking and generally quicker response in all areas. The processor is joined by a hefty 1Ghz of RAM and 16GB of internal storage capacity, ideal for storing all manner of material including multiple audio files or snaps and footage captured by the phone itself. The camera is a cut above the standard found on most smartphones, and offers a high quality 8 mega pixel image. The camera is accompanied by an LED flash to make shots in poor lighting much more effective. Video footage is also great, with the S2 being one of only a handful of models able to capture 1080P, the highest resolution HD footage possible. The Samsung Galaxy S2 improves upon what was already an impressive and popular model. An improved screen together with an overhaul of the Android OS and great media facilities make this destined to become one of the leading smartphones of 2011.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Nokia X5 Purple are coming soon.
