  • A Must Have Gadget
    Veena (Jun 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Pick up the phone and the first thing you notice is how light it is ? it?s just 116g. Measuring 8.49mm, it?s incredibly slim in comparison to 9.9mm for the original Galaxy S; 9.3mm for the Apple iPhone 4 and 8.7mm for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. While the Galaxy S2 will certainly fit into the tightest jeans pocket, the compromise is build quality - the body just feels cheap and uninspiring. Things don't improve when you remove the wafer thin back to insert a sim - we?d be seriously worried about snapping it. Controls are limited to volume on one side, power on the other, MHL port, which serves a dual purpose of charging via USB and outputting to HDMI, and a 3.5mm jack on the top, Samsung includes a range of streaming options including DLNA. Samsung Galaxy S2: Screen The highlight of S2 is the 4.3-inch 800x480 screen, which incorporates Super AMOLED Plus technology. Colours are eye popping and blues and greens literally jump out of the screen at you. Off-angle viewing is excellent too - the first phone we?ve seen to match the iPhone 4. A larger screen sizes means that the phone is bulky, but it?s a joy for movies. When playing back our test HD movie clips, detail is sharp and action smooth. We found that whites aren?t as pure or bright as those on the Apple iPhone 4, although blacks seem darker and colours are bolder and warmer. It handles action smoothly too. Samsung Galaxy S2: Android Running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread, you get seven homescreens customisable with widgets and shortcuts. Swipe down to quickly activate WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and Auto Rotation settings. Phone, Contact, Messaging and Application settings along the bottom are static when you are browsing the homescreens. Like other Android phones, press down to customise with Shortcuts, Folders, Wallpaper and numerous Samsung widgets. Samsung?s overlayed Android with its TouchWiz UI which is functional and adds some neat features, including four hubs: Music (see below), Games, Readers and Social Hub, which acts as a portal to Kobo bookstore and Magazines via Zinio. Social Hub syncs social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, to IM accounts including Google Talk; and MySpace and Linked-in. It?s functional, syncing your contacts, but we prefer HTC Sense. In addition Sony Ericsson?s Xperia skin is slightly easier to use, for example here you can only organize the Applications via grid or list and to create App Folders you make the folder first before dragging items onto it.

  • Solid Performer
    Pallavi Ram (May 15, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    This was first gift I received from my husband after marriage, and unfortunately I lost it & miss it. The design is solid, good battery life, absolutely brilliant display that provides engaging view, comfortable to hold & can easily operate in single hand, and a photo captured with this is divine bracket camera quality is that excellent. I never really noticed any freeze-up or lag while playing games or browsing. Speaker quality is definitely a drawback. This mobile is easy to review, it was the best smartphone to buy, real value for money back then. Despite its age, this one is still a solid performer on any given day.

    this is my personal review so i think there is no need to write specs because most of the person knows and well those are written above. well this was suggested to me by gadget guru- rajiv makhni (television anchor of year 2012) i follow his advises i actually read every article of him in hindustan times. about the phone i will say this is the only phone by samsung with nice design and slim profile handset which i like most (though i like plastic handsets because the are lighter) Build quality- the phone is engineered nicely it feels strong and in real sense as wel it is robust(i dropped it many times it always resisted) Reception/call quality- i myself rarely dropped any call what else to say about Internet- it worked fine but for prolonged usage it gets warm and sometimes pages loads a bit slow ( 2g) Multimedia- it produces good sound output balanced sound no problem with audios as it supports most of the formats.and for videos too (playing videos for long consumes battery fast in this phone) Camera-- camera produces very good outdoor pics and up to thye mark indoor too but i will shutter speed is a bit slow Display--its super amoled plus it is good but for me it was over saturated colours are not that much balanced battery- this is the main problem or i will say shortcoming of this phone mot of the times it never lasted with me for whole day with good amount of charge this is my review about phone which i used for a long time.i tried to include all basic or necessary points one should see before comparing.thank you
