Browser

The Galaxy S II has the stock Android browser. As noted many times, it is a highly capable browser that does a commendable job of rendering web sites, both full desktop and mobile versions. Speeds are crazy fast when under 21Mbps and 42Mbps coverage -- we're talking faster than Wi-Fi. It's really amazing to browse the web at such speeds on a mobile device. T-Mobile's 42Mbps network can deliver stunning results in the Galaxy S II's browser.

Customize

Samsung's new version of TouchWiz is a pleasant upgrade from previous versions in that it’s not as "in-your-face." The new version of TouchWiz also means that the phone is easier to customize and make your own. With seven customizable home screen panels and widgets a-plenty, there's little you can't control. You can also rearrange the four key apps that are in the main taskbar on the home screens, though it is ridiculously difficult to find the right ontrols to adjust them.
