Review: Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T
The Galaxy S II comes with the stock Android browser. With the capable processor and HSPA+ on board, it is a solid browsing device. When under strong AT&T coverage, browsing sessions were a joy. Web pages loaded in the blink of an eye. This phone - more than others I've recently tested - took a performance hit when under weak network conditions. Strong signal equals fast browsing; weak signal equals inconsistent browsing.
Samsung's new version of TouchWiz is a pleasant upgrade from previous versions in that it's not as "in-your-face." But it 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.
