The Samsung Galaxy S II on 3
Why we like it
- Incredible Super AMOLED+ screen outshines even the original Galaxy S
- Dual core processor for superior power and speed
- Feather-light and super-slim
- Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system
It isn’t hard to see why the 3 Samsung Galaxy S II was 2011 Phone of the Year! It made astounding advances upon Samsung’s original Galaxy S, and it’s clear that Samsung are smartphone manufacturers who are pushing the boundaries of what mobiles can do for you. This phone is packed full of features to make your life easier and more fun.
The S 2’s superAMOLED+ touchscreen displays your photos and videos in crisp, clear colours whilst reducing battery consumption meaning you can watch videos on the go for longer. Contrast levels on the screen have been radically enhanced making for an incredibly rich visual experience that allows you to see your pictures from the 8 megapixel camera in ultra-sharp detail.
The Samsung Galaxy’s sharp screen is matched only by this smartphone’s sharp looks. At 8.5mm it is sleek and sophisticated but designed with your comfort in mind. The S II has a bumper on its base to ensure it sits comfortably in your palm, and the premium case is fingerprint free with a non-slip battery cover meaning it feels more executive and professional than ever before.
Under the bonnet this phone packs quite a punch with a dual core processor running the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system. The Galaxy S II delivers lighting fast loading times and a highly responsive touchscreen at the same time as increased battery life. What’s not to like? Because it runs Android you can expect plenty of room to customise your S 2 just the way you want: update your social networks, download the latest games or choose from a huge selection of apps to load across your seven homescreens!
You’re guaranteed to be a hit with your friends with the brilliant Three Samsung Galaxy S II. If you’re after a top notch smartphone for working on documents and emails, or for surfing the web and gaming, then this is the phone for you.
