Samsung today announced the Galaxy S II, its latest Galaxy line smartphone. The Galaxy S II is extremely thin at 8.49mm, and it uses the latest Super AMOLED plus display technology for its 4.27-inch display. It has quad-band GSM/EDGE and quad-band HSPA at 21Mbps, Bluetooth 3.0 HS, GPS, Wi-Fi, and FM with RDS radios, and a dual-core 1GHz processor. The S II's main camera captures 8 megapixels, full 1080p HD video and has auto-focus and a flash. The secondary camera has 2 megapixels. Media can be shared via DLNA, an the S II will come with either 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage, in addition to a slot for microSD cards up to 32GB. The S II runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and includes a number of Samsung software elements, such as TouchWiz, Social Hub, Media Hub, Readers Hub, and Game Hub. The S II features a new, customizable live panel, which users can use to pull down web content, such as RSS feeds. Samsung has added business-centric features, such as device encryption, Cysco VPN software, Sybase's Afaria device manager, Cisco WebEx and Cisco's VoIP application. It comes with support for an NFC chip, but this option would need to be selected by network operators selling the device.
The Sprint version of the Epic 4G Touch packs WiMax 4G, TouchWiz, a speedy processor, 4.5-inch touch display and a host of Sprint software. Do these all add up to a killer phone?
Phone Scoop looks at the Galaxy S II smartphone for AT&T's network. While this version packs a smaller screen than its larger brothers, there are some surprising benefits.
Phone Scoop met with T-Mobile today and was able to spend some time with its new newest — and fastest — 4G phones, the HTC Amaze 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G. Here are our initial impressions.
T-Mobile scores the best version of the Samsung Galaxy S II with its large display, faster processor, and zippier wireless data radio. But those aren't the only noteworthy features of this superlative smartphone.
Phone Scoop goes hands-on with the latest Galaxy S II device from Samsung, the Skyrocket. The Skyrocket's claim to fame is that it is one of the first smartphones to include support for AT&T's new Long Term Evolution 4G network.

No thanks SamSUCK
Last but not least, you always somehow seem to phuck something up by always falling short. Like not include a feature such as a camera flash, or take away 720p video recording. You always phuck up somewhere. Not to mention the signature SamSUCK cheap plasticky build quality.
