Samsung Galaxy S2

 

It's Samsung's best smartphone to date, but is it the best in the market?

Vibrant AMOLED display ; Fast processor ; Customised interface works well

Less than perfect built quality ; Mediocre battery life

The Galaxy S should have been a cracking handset and in many ways it is. Its screen is very good, it's fast, it's packed with features, and looks pretty decent as well. Certainly if you're looking for a large and powerful Android smartphone, it's up...

Samsung Galaxy S2 review

 

Samsung Galaxy S2 Review: The S2 offers an exciting batch of features, from a super repsonsive 4.3-inch touchscreen to a generous 8-megapixel camera

Glorious screen, thin body ; Decent battery performance ; Good camera/video mode

Feels plasticky ; Can't play some Tegra games

Our main complaint about the S2 is the build. It’s doesn’t feel premium and considering it will set you back close to £500 on pre-order, this isn’t good enough.

Samsung Galaxy S II

 

A fine phone and worthy champion – but the new kids have upped the ante

Light ; slim ; big screen ; dynamic, colourful video ; new Kies wireless software is neat

Lacks premium feel ; audio can be bettered ; no longer the latest Android OS

Samsung Galaxy S2 review: video performance Internet browsing is fast – the Galaxy S II has a dual-core 1.2GHz chip – and the screen’s size comes in to its own.

Samsung Galaxy S II review

 

The world's slimest smartphone, says Samsung, but does the i9100 back it up with brains?

Fast, powerful, with dazzling design and great battery life, the Galaxy S II is an irresistible Android handset

Samsung Galaxy S2 review

 

Dual-core power, beautiful screen - the Galaxy S II is the kind of sequel we like

Super-fast reaction times ; Slim design ; Ridiculously clear screen ; Clear call quality ; 1080p video recording

Flimsy back cover ; Poor keyboard layout ; Samsung Apps portal

Update: We've updated our review to reflect the software update on the Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich - and to include the changes found in the recent 4.0.4 update as well.

Samsung Galaxy S2 review: Long forgotten but any good in 2018?

 

Once the best Android handset to own, there are now other smartphones available for around the same money as a second-hand example

Fantastic display ; Good camera ; microSD card support

Plastic chassis

Samsung's Galaxy S2 has a beautiful screen, fast and slick interface and great camera. The plastic chassis isn't quite up to that of some of its competitors (such as the new Motorola RAZR) and some will bemoan the lack of an HDMI output. However, this...

Samsung Galaxy S2 review

 

With attractive Android skinning and a good array of widgets, many of which are resizable, the Samsung Galaxy S II lends itself to plenty of user customisation too.

Nine months might be an eternity in smartphone development, but the Galaxy S II still holds its own very well against more recently released devices. While its price has fallen since its launch, Samsung’s handset is still an expensive option.
