Samsung Galaxy SII

The Samsung Galaxy SII is dubbed to be an iPhone killer. And with a 1.2GHz processor, super-slim chassis and feather-light finish, it’s easy to see why.

It is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market at the moment, rivalling the iPhone 4 and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. And, at just 116gms, it is one of the lightest too. The super AMOLED 4.3 inch screen is a delight – looks even better than the iPhone with its vivid colors, but some may find the colors of the iPhone little more natural. The 8.1MP camera with single LED flash takes great pictures and videos for most day to day requirements.

As compared to the iPhone 4, the Galaxy SII has a tad lower screen resolution and has a plastic body. But otherwise, in terms of speed of browsing and customisability, the SII scores over the iPhone 4. Maybe the iPhone 5 will catch up with this later, but as of now, the SII has an overall breezy experience.

The Android Marketplace for the SII has many more free apps than the Apple iOS marketplace. Besides, for the flexibility of the Android system, the ease of replacement of batteries and the simplicity of the entire experience, I would vote for the SII.

Finally, finding your phone is like finding your life partner, you don’t know whether it is the right one until you meet in person. The final choice must be made after holding the phone in your hand — finding out the build quality (sturdiness), the actual speed of launching applications, the ease of use etc.. But, based on the hard specs, Samsung definitely has an edge. And if you are looking for a good smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy SII is going to be top of the line for a while.
