Is the Samsung Galaxy S2 The Most Loved Smartphone?

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 211

Last year was a triumph for Samsung as the firm brought out a number of similar Galaxy models in the range, but the S2 was head and shoulders above the rest and many would argue the competition too. It's a similar-looking device to the rest of the Galaxy range, which is no bad thing, but it's deeply intriguing who the electronics giant has managed to cram so many tech into this smartphone that it's worth buying just to try and work that out!

Let's look at the specifications then, and see what makes the Samsung Galaxy S2 so incredible: -

The Processor - The dual core 1.2GHz unit in the S2 is unbelievably quick and has only just recently been pipped by the 1.5GHz chip in the HTC Sensation XE. It's more than fast enough for everyday duties and if you're a resource-heavy user too. There is an expected quad-core 1.5GHz chip expected in the S3, though, which will take Samsung back to the top.

Screen - The super AMOLED capacitive LED screen is so impressive that other manufacturers are left scratching their heads. Even the iPhone 5 is being rumoured to borrow the technology when it reaches the market later in the year. It's that good! At 480 x 800 the screen resolution isn't the highest but the processor speed and that special screen combine to give impressive graphics at a fast rate, and it's more than capable of making you say, "Wow" when you first use it. Encased in Gorilla Glass, the super-protective, scratch-resistant covering you can expect the Galaxy S2 to last for a very long time without showing scratches.

Thanks to that impressive screen, watching videos and browsing images is akin to a full HD TV. There is so much functionality and impressive clarity that makes this screen the one to beat right now.

Android Operating System - Android phones are the most popular in the world right now. Beating off Apple's flagship phones easily, although mainly due to many manufacturers using it, this operating system is deeply impressive. It comes complete with Gingerbread 2.3 OS preloaded. This works perfectly with the processor and RAM configurations that everything you seem to do is seamless and effortless. It's slicker than BP's finest and it's so easy and intuitive to use.

Thanks to the customisable TouchWiz v4.0 user-interface you can make your Android phone work perfectly for your needs and with millions of apps to download you can have a wide range of widgets, movies, books, games and apps at your fingertips.

So, as you can see there are plenty of reasons why the Samsung Galaxy S2 is killing off the competition and why more than 20 million handsets have been sold already. There are still rumours around the release date of the Galaxy S3 but it's due to be soon, especially as the iPhone 5 (or new iPhone as it's being called) is due out in the autumn. It's certainly something to look forward to but for now, the S2 is more than capable of being the smartphone you've always dreamed of.
