AT&T Galaxy S2 Review!

AT&T’s Galaxy S2 Android smartphone is nearly identical to the “first” international version, which I tried months ago when it first came out except the edges are bit more polished and there are four capacitative menu buttons at the bottom instead of just three.

Best Display on Market – AMOLED 4.3″ Screen

Probably the best feature about all Galaxy S2 series is its AMOLED Samsung screen that is brighter than any other smartphone display on the market and also the colors are more vibrant.  You can tell that Samsung has put some of their HDTV screens onto this smartphone and the result?  It’s absolutely stunning as you can see in the photos. (No, these photos weren’t photoshopped in any way!)  If you take other smartphones on the market and put them side by side, you will see a clear difference in how the Galaxy S2 is brighter, clearer, and more refreshing.

Even with only 800×480 resolution screen, the Galaxy S2 screen beats out the Droid Bionic and HTC Evo 3D (both ahve 960×540 resolution) by far, you only have to take one glance and you will fall in love with the S2, not the others.



Even viewing from side angles, the display stay clear and bright, something you can only expect from Samsung’s AMOLED technology.

The Galaxy S2 comes with Volume buttons on its left side and there’s a bit of contour at the bottom, helping you hold the phone with one hand in vertical position.

On the right side of the Galaxy S2, there’s a Power button, simple enough?

The front of the Galaxy S2 has a 2 megapixel camera, which has quite good results when taking photos of yourself.

AT&T HSPA+ 21.1Mbps 4G Network Connectivity

The AT&T Galaxy S2 features HSPA+ 21.1Mbps 4G network connectivity.  In real life, the HSPA+ does well at getting reliable signal.  Although the actual download speeds aren’t terribly fast (Verizon 4G LTE got 20Mbps while Sprint WiMax go 10Mbps on same test area), it does a respecting 3-4Mbps download in real life testing.
