Your Next Smartphone is Already Here

On April 29th 2011, the Samsung Galaxy S II (also known as the Samsung Galaxy S 2 or Samsung i9100) smartphone was released to the public in South Korea. Within 30 minutes, about 30,000 phones were sold. That's 1,000 phones per minute, and only in South Korea. So what makes this phone so hot that people buy it like crazy?

Smartphones are just everywhere these days. The real buzz started with, of course, the iPhone. Apple seems to have a way of making everything look "really cool", and so millions of people just charge to buy their products upon first public release. It's not always the case that Apple's products are indeed the best in the market, or the most innovative, but it doesn't seem to bother the Apple fanatics.

One important thing people buy a smartphone for is to earn bragging rights. In that sense, not only does the Samsung Galaxy S II give you the right to brag, its chic and elegant design, ultra-slim figure, and impossibly light weight would make every iPhone owner start mumbling. These features don't come at the expense of the screen - the 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display is the widest in the market, and the vibrant colors are simply stunning.

At this point you may say that each year several new smartphones reach the market, and your ability to flash your phone and feel you're on the top of the world is not going to last very long. In general, you'll be right. However, the Galaxy S II is future-ready: its incredibly fast dual-core processor, the large, expandable internal memory, the full HD 1080p recording and playback capability, and the support for the newest communication standards available make sure that the Galaxy S II is still going to be one of the best smartphones out there even in a couple of years.

It goes without saying that whatever current smartphones do, the Samsung Galaxy S II can probably do better. The browsing experience is so entertaining, you would not even feel as if you're surfing the net via a smartphone. And if it's cool games or hot music you're interested in - you got it. The world of rich media and entertainment is at your disposal, and you can enjoy it anytime, anywhere. If you feel like just laying back and reading a good book or a magazine, you'll find that this feature is already included in the phone.

So why beat around the bush and not just tell you what every Samsung Galaxy S II review will tell you anyway? You should really do yourself a favor and get the Galaxy S II. You'll thank yourself instantly.

I am considering moving over to a new phone from my iPhone 4 simply because I have been interested in Android for quite some time. I am definitely going to consider the Samsung Galaxy S. Thanks for the review.

Glad I could be of help. There should be some more in-depth reviews + a comparison chart and stuff in the linked site by the end of the week, so you can check it out then if you want. Oh, and make sure you look for the Galaxy S II (Galaxy S 2, or Samsung i9100), and not simply the Galaxy S, which is already a year old. If there's anything else you'd like to know about the subject, feel free to let me know.
