Samsung Galaxy S II can be rightly said to be the main rival currently against the iPhone. It is brilliantly designed and has amazing technology in it. The size of its screen is 4.3 inches large and it is quite larger than an iPhone. It is powered by dual core processor, and when it was released by that time, it was considered as ahead of its time, even the iPhone did not have it! It comes in only two storage options that being 16 GB and 32 GB with no option of increasing the storage through external storage options! Samsung have taken advantage of iPhone not using new technology for their touchscreen, Samsung now use on their Galaxy S II the all new Gorilla Glass, which is next to indestructible and unscratchable and hence users will not require using screen protector making the phone look really good!
Its not only on the size and speed where the Samsung Galaxy S II looks better than the iPhone, it has got a 8.0 MP camera at its back with LED flash and also the quality of the camera is quite stunning as the picture clicked are all full HD with a very high resolution and it also has features such as auto-focus, geo tagging and many more makes the camera one of the strongest points of Samsung Galaxy S II. Even in the new iPhone 4S, the quality of the camera has been improved drastically and it is capable of capturing stunning pictures and as per critics the quality of pictures from both the smartphones is nearly equally as good! Video recording on the Samsung Galaxy S II is also full HD and it is recorded at 1080p, and so the camera quality of the Samsung Galaxy S II is quite stunning!
Samsung Galaxy S II comes with both 2G and 3G connectivity and both are of superb quality. The problem with 3G in India being that the customers would have to switch back to postpaid to enjoy the features of 3G which is bad mark for the customers. It is also equipped with Wi-Fi which is of superb quality and it is able to catch lowest of the signals with relative ease compared to the iPhone. The Bluetooth is latest model of 2.1 currently in the market and it is very fast when connected with another Samsung mobile. Unlike the iPhone using the Bluetooth is a very easy thing in the Samsung Galaxy S II.
With the help of two 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, Samsung Galaxy S II is able to take anything you throw at it, whether be it a full 1080p HD movie or a full HD game with high level of graphics, the Samsung Galaxy S II is easily able to cope up with anything. And thanks to the dual core processor, the Super-Amoled HD display works absolutely brilliantly with absolutely no sign of glitches. The display is one of the major factors for the success of Samsung Galaxy S II as the pictures and the movies when viewed on the Samsung Galaxy S II shows absolutely vibrant quality and amazing vibrant looking colors and clarity!
The new Samsung Galaxy S II has now two colour options white and black, whereas earlier there was only one option. Web Browsing in Samsung Galaxy S II is more like surfing on a PC it is so good and the options are also very good making web browsing of impeccable quality. To top it all of since the Samsung Galaxy S II is installed with the Android 2.3, it has access to nearly unlimited and thousands of apps for users to choose from and most of them being free makes it all that much better for the users.
The only major downfall of the Samsung Galaxy S II is due to the high performance features in the Samsung Galaxy S II the battery life is not at all good compared the to the iPhone and hence it can make a quite huge problems for users who dont have a travel charger with them on long trips lasting more than a day!
