Samsung Galaxy S II Hands-On (Video)
The Galaxy S II is a pretty big deal for Samsung. It’s the proper successor to their wildly-selling Galaxy S series of devices, which has sold over 10 million units already. Compared to the device it’s replacing, the Galaxy S II features a large 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus display at WVGA resolution, plus it’s bumped to Android 2.3 with the latest version of TouchWiz UI. It features a dual core CPU (we’re still not 100% on just which) with around 512MB of RAM. On the back it’s packing an 8MP camera with full 1080p video capture.
We just got some serious hands on time with the Galaxy S II, and found that it indeed might be the world’s thinnest and lightest device which would appeal to the majority among you but if you’re like me, you would probably not like it. It all comes down to your tastes, really, the device is thin, light and had a great build quality.
Needless to say Samsung’s own Super AMOLED Plus display brings the best in contrast and color vibrancy and, with the dual-core CPU and Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the device really flies executing whatever you throw at it.
