The new Galaxy S is finally here and it is a powerhouse of a smartphone in a slim and lightweight design. Thinner than the original Galaxy S iPhone, the new Samsung Galaxy S II is light (only 117g) and packs the latest version of Android (Gingerbread).

Slim & Light Design
The Galaxy S II is Samsung's slimmest and lightest Dual Core smartphone, weighing just 116 grams at a thickness of only 8.49mm. Featuring a premium metallic look, its tactile surface will sit perfectly in your palm.

The Galaxy S II features a new smaller and even more powerful battery. Samsung's advanced power consumption technology significantly improves standby and talk time even further

Super Amoled Plus
Experience sharper images and smoother graphics with the Super AMOLED Plus display. With super-fast response times and outstanding contrast ratio, the 4.3" display is Samsung's most colourful and brightest screen.

Data Speed
Enjoy PC-like browsing thanks to the Galaxy S II's downloading speeds of up to 21mbps or lightning fast downloads with Dual Channel Wifi.

Samsung Dual Core Application Processor
Dedicated to speed, Samsung Dual Core Application Processor is based on Quad GPU and has 3200M pix/s. Clocking at lightening speeds the unrivaled performance of the Dual Core Application Processor provides unsurpassed functionality and density for faster downloads, quicker multi-tasking, a smoother UI, snappier streaming and highly efficient gaming. With encoding/decoding ability that supports video play and recording of all 1080p/30fps makes it no.1 among dual cores.

8MP Camera with LED Flash
Get your shots in. The 8MP auto focus camera doesn't miss any details whether you're shooting idleness or action. Take beautiful, detailed photos even in low light with the built-in LED flash. And thanks to the much improved user interface of Android Gingerbread, fast scene switching is possible. And a quick switch to the 2MP front-facing camera makes self-portraits a snap. Picture the difference.

When you first set eyes and hands on the Galaxy S2, there are two things that will probably go through your mind at first glance. First off, 'wow, that screen is big' and second, 'it's so incredibly light and thin'. You would definitely not be wrong as the screen is approximately 4.3" and it only weights in at 116g.

I am going to address the screen first. The Galaxy S2 sports a Super AMOLED Plus screen (an improvement over the Super AMOLED screen in the Galaxy S) and it offers much more crisper text and much more vibrancy and brightness in the colours. It is an absolute joy to watch videos, play games or view pictures. It's definitely one of the biggest things about this phone that I like to make a song and a dance about, because it truly is a fantastic screen that you won't find with other phones.

Moving on, the Galaxy S packs 1GB of RAM and a 1.2GHz dual core processor and the results are very noticeable. The power-up is quick, the fluidness of swiping screens is incredible and just the general responsiveness of the phone is magnificent. The power of this phone bursts out at you from everywhere; you simply cannot help but instantaneously notice it.

The camera quality and video recording is just phenomenal on this phone. The 8MP camera produces some great, high quality shots and the recording at full HD is just the height of this phone's capabilities. It is important to note that at full HD (1080p), you cannot use the zoom function on the camera. The phone also has a 2mp front facing camera and although it isn't as impressive as the rear facing camera, it's one of the highest quality front facing cameras that I have used. It should make video conferencing that little bit more crisper.

The design and aesthetics of the phone are probably the one thing that will be a hit and miss with people. The phone feels very nice in your hand and is lovely and thin; however, it does not sport the premium feel that you may find with other phones. It is definitely an upgrade from the Galaxy S, but I wouldn't consider it to be premium. Nevertheless, I find it still very nice to hold and to use.

The new TouchWiz 4.0 is a big improvement over the previous instalment and there is a nice overlay. The wallpapers look even more impressive, mainly due to the Super AMOLED Plus screen.

I have managed to use the game hub and although the selection of games is not largely diverse, there are still a nice selection of social and premium games and some are free.

I really do not know what else to say about this phone. The browsing experience is great, the responsiveness and fluidity is perfect, the quality is out of this world. This phone is really so enjoyable to use and I would go out of my way to recommend this phone to anyone looking at a new smartphone or an Android powered phone; it's a real treat and I think Samsung have manufactured a winner here.

This phone has just killed the iPhone 4. Still going through its features but so far I can say that its excellent, very bright due to its Super AMOLED display, and full of media capabilities. It also has a 1080p full res video recorder. NICE.

I have had this phone nearly a week now. I love it. It has everything! I was thinking about an iphone but this is far better in my opinion. If you want an iphone for the apps, this has thousands and you can get a lot of the apps that the iphone has. I love how you can read people's facebook etc updates in your contacts and use the Social Hub for seeing all of your emails, twitter, facebook updates in one place. The camera is 8 MP, and the screen makes the images so clear!! i couldn't believe how high quality the pics come out, even when you zoom in. I love how you can tap & scroll down at the top of the screen which shows you all of your notifications then you scroll back up to close it. The phone does have a a large screen which people might be put off, but I think it's not far bigger than the iphone and HTC's. It is sooo light though so definately doesn't mean its bulky. The battery goes down rather quickly but I am on it all the time so not suprised about that. Really cant say anything negative about this phone at the moment!! I would recommend this phone to anyone.

 Perfect Phone

I have had this phone for just over a week, and can say its by far and away the best gadget i've ever owned. Putting this into context in terms of phones, i've had an HTC Desire, a Desire HD, and an Iphone 4, and it blows them all away. Its rather like comparing a Ferrari against a Ford Mondeo, its that good.
The phone looks and feels great. And yes its not as stylish in terms of visual appeal as say the iphone 4, with its lovely metal body, but hey i'd prefer lightness and thinness to anything else, especially with a phone of this screen size. I had an HTC Desire HD, with the 4.3 inch screen, and metal casing, and you definitely knew you had it in your pocket, this you don't. And its built really well, doesn't creak at all, unlike my HTC Desire HD.
The speed of the machine is unreal, and lets face it, it should be, as its faster than quite a few pcs and laptops. It takes everything in its stride, especially HD movie playback. I've run a blueray rip of Avatar on the phone, and it runs perfectly,which amazed me. I also have a DNLA TV, and it works perfectly with the phone.

As for the camera, its great, as is the video.

Oh and it actually works very well as a phone, the reception is great, and sound quality is excellent.

I am quite shocked that reviewers haven't proclaimed this as a revolutionary phone, and stated that it's simply the best phone out there, I mean period, and by some distance. It does everything very well, and has no real weakness, and for that alone its a winner. What else do you want from a phone?

The UK version doesnt come with NFC. Samsung shiped UK versions without the NFC chip inside so it cant even be enabled. Otherwise, the best phone of 2011
