Samsung Galaxy S II-The New Android King

Approximately one year ago, I shared with you guys a phone destined to slay the (then) iPhone produced by Apple; One year ago, the phone was so sensationally good that people have actually turned their heads and wallets away from the rather back-lagging iPhone and pick Samsung Galaxy S! One year has gone and Apple has clearly seen its lead being trimmed tremendously. Now the already "outdated" iPhone will have to content with Samsung Galaxy SII! I don't think iPhone 5 which will be released next month can dethrone Samsung Galaxy S II.

Samsung Galaxy S II

Do you know that Samsung Galaxy S II managed to surpassed the 3 million units sold mark in just 55 days? Now let's do some maths here: At least one Samsung Galaxy S II (GSII)has been sold nearly every 1.5 seconds, which made us to 57,000 GSII being sold daily. Wow! Hence it is now Samsung's quickest and best-selling smartphone to date. That speaks volume about the phone quality right? I believe no one can deny the fact the Samsung has been making better phones compared to Apple. Let us see why Samsung Galaxy S II is simply way better than iPhone shall we?

Super AMOLED Plus will blow you away!

For starters, the newest, sexiest incarnation of Samsung Galaxy S comes with Super AMOLED Plus. AMOLED Plus is claimed to enhance readability and improved battery life. With its amazingly generous 4.3inch display, one can expect nothing but unbelievable multimedia richness from Samsung Galaxy S II. It seems that Samsung has really put this smartphone of theirs under rigorous exercise huh. Measuring at 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.49mm and weighing a mere 116g, it is easily the thinnest smartphone in its class. Throw in a full Gorilla Glass front panel and voila your Samsung Galaxy S II is now like your 43inch LCD TV. Ha :D

Experience life in the fast lane with 1.2Ghz Dual-core processor.

LG Optimus 2X was the world's first smartphone to showcase a dual-core processor. But it didn't take long for that claim to be thrown into the history book with several smartphones climbing up the shelves spotting the same "old" 1Ghz dual-core processor. Samsung Galaxy S II wanted to come out with a bang and its 1.2Ghz dual-core Exynos processor certainly didn't disappoint. Pair this 1.2Ghz dual-core processor with 1GB or RAM and 2GB of ROM, guess what you will get-insane, blistering, raw processing power. How about storage for your GSII? Well you can opt for either the 16GB internal storage or the 32GB internal storage. Still not enough? You can slot in your very own 32GB microSD then. :p

Do you know that Samsung Galaxy S II is actually capable of shooting FULL HD 1080p video at 30fps, which is really a rarity. So now you can capture all those priceless moment of your loved ones vividly. Samsung Galaxy S II boast a stunning 8MP camera complete with autofocus and LED flash. Flip the phone and you will see the 2MP camera sitting comfortably on the front panel, making videoconferencing and self-portrait a snap! Having 2MP for a front camera is considered quite impressive as some smartphones have only a VGA camera to show.

Get vocal: Control your Samsung Galaxy S II with your voice.

Watch a few TV commercials of Samsung Galaxy S II




In a nutshell, Samsung Galaxy S II could very well be the best Android Smartphone right now. Wait...IMHO, Samsung Galaxy S II is without a doubt the best smartphone right now. I dare claim that no other smartphone can rival its sheer brilliance and raw power. I could only think of HTC Sense as a possible contender. Will iPhone 5 be able to match Samsung Galaxy S II? Let's wait for Apple to roll it our this September ok. All in all Samsung Galaxy S II has not only upped its own game, but at the same time it has upped the benchmark for all existing and future smartphones.

Maxis Android Device presents Samsung Galaxy S II

Don't you wish you can have this Samsung Galaxy S II huh! However this king of Android will not come cheap though. If you are a Malaysian (like me), be prepared to fork out RM2,099 if you wish to own this phenomenal Samsung Galaxy S II. However the good news is you can get it as low as RM1,399 if you are subscribing to Maxis Android Device Package. Then again, the amount you paid for this Samsung Galaxy S II is relatively reasonable as it is the king of Android...and it is almost "future-proof" too. :)

All hail the King of Android-Samsung Galaxy S II
