Samsung Galaxy S II – The Android Powerhouse

We have been hearing how powerful the Samsung Galaxy S II is and now Anandtech has put some numbers behind the power. In testing they put the Galaxy S II up against other leading smartphones like the iPhone 4, Nexus S and even the iPad 2.

According to the testing that was done the Galaxy S II has proven to be the most powerful Android device available. We do mean device, as the S II outperformed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It was only out performed by the iPad 2.

While Sprint and AT&T are getting this variant of the Galaxy S II, we do know T-Mobile for some reason went with a different processor. Once that is finalized we can throw T-Mobile into the ranking.

The S II is going to be a welcome addition to the Android lineup in the United States. Let’s hope the battery can keep up with the devices power.

I am not sure this device is a great strategy for Samsung, there are great players on the market like the iPod Touch that will be very hard to compete with. I really think they needed to include a data only option like the iPad and and tablets offer. It would make the Galaxy S WiFi really stand out in the crowd. Read more
