Review: Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T
As with its Galaxy S II brethren, the AT&T variant has an 8-megapixel sensor and a bright LED flash. Most of the pictures I captured were excellent in quality. Focus was crisp, colors were accurate, white balance was balanced, and they showed a warmth that made them pleasing to the eye.
Use of the flash was particularly helpful. The flash is extremely bright, and it fires off several bursts before the picture is taken to help with focus. The end result is indoor shots that look almost as good as those taken on a sunny day.

The Galaxy S II can also capture 1080p HD video. I thought the quality of the video was excellent. The AT&T S II showed none of the problems that I saw with the Epic 4G Touch, and delivered consistently good results. The clarity of the video was the most impressive trait, but colors and white balance all looked good, too.
