Samsung Galaxy S II hands-on

May 6th, 2011 at 8:51 AM

We didn’t just grab a Samsung Infuse 4G last night, we also took possession of the company’s latest flagship Android device, the Samsung Galaxy S II. This particular device supports AT&T’s 3G 4G bands which is a welcome feature, and while it looks nearly identical to the Infuse 4G, we have to say… this is now our favorite Android device out of Samsung. With a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread all stuffed into a 8.49mm thin body, this phone is the one to beat. Samsung’s 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus display looks great on here, and the TouchWiz UI doesn’t seem to get in the way too much — at least not like it used to. With that said, Samsung’s included keyboard is useless due to its lack of autocorrect as you type — we really need to see this fixed as soon as possible. Battery life seems to be more than adequate in the limited time we’ve spent with the phone; specifically, standby time seems like it could go for days. We’ll be rocking away on a review of the Samsung Galaxy S II, but in the meantime, you know where to find the hands-on photos.
