A review of the Samsung Galaxy S2

After the huge success of the Galaxy S, Samsung was back in 2011 with its successor, simply called Samsung Galaxy S2. With a beautiful AMOLED screen, a powerful processor and a Touch Wiz interface, this is a handset that competes for the title of best smartphone available on the market.

Technical Specifications

The most impressive asset of the Samsung Galaxy S2 is without doubt its 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, which offers perfect contrast and sharp colours. The display has a resolution of 480 x 800 and a dynamic brightness setting. An advantage of this screen is that even after hours of use, fingerprints are only slightly present on its surface, a problem that was corrected from its predecessor.

The phone runs on Android 2.3 and it is equipped with a Dual Core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. This means that it is impossible to experience a slowdown, even in heavy use. Other features of the handset include an 8 megapixel camera optical sensor and integrated Bluetooth 3. The handset weighs only 116 grams and it is thus the lightest Dual Core processor available on the market.

The exterior design is an improvement from Samsung Galaxy S, as it features an attractive metallic look. The capacity of the battery has also been improved, the handset being equipped with a 1650 mAh battery, which is slightly more than its predecessor. The difference seems small, but the energy consumption of the phone has also been reduced. This means that, for regular use, you will not have to recharge the phone for about 48 hours.

Final word

Despite some flaws, the first Galaxy S was a great success and with the Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung corrects the weaknesses of the first model. The handset is fast, lightweight, with an impressive screen and fitted with Android 2.3, characteristics that make it an ideal choice even for a picky user.
