Review: Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T

Form Basics Extras Wrap-up Comments  7  

AT&T's Galaxy S II is a very good phone. Its slightly smaller footprint makes it a more approachable and usable phone than some other top-end models. It doesn't break any new ground with respect to hardware design, but it's no wallflower, either.

As far as performance goes, signal performance was a little hit-or-miss, and it had a direct impact on data performance in particular. Voice calls, however, were excellent, as was battery life. The messaging and communication tools are top-of-the-line, the media powers are good enough for most (and can be supplemented by the Android Market) and the camera and video camera do an excellent job.

The user interface is the best we've seen from Samsung yet, and the Android 2.3 base code gives the Galaxy S II plenty of power when it comes to app compatibility.

The Galaxy S II is an excellent phone from Samsung. Were it not for the small signal blip, it would be a near home run. Even so, hitting a triple isn't so bad, and unless you live in a crummy network coverage area, there's no reason to skip the Galaxy S II.
