The Samsung stable has produced yet another stud, albeit an extremely slim one. It has engineered the second slimmest dual core processor phone in the world. The first one was the NEC Medias, however this was only ever released in Japan which made it unavailable to most of the world. It is quite safe to say that Samsung Galaxy S2, the newest addition to the flagship Galaxy S series from Samsung Electronics is one of the top phones in the world which strikes the perfect balance between performance and looks.
Samsung have managed to slap down any competition with the Galaxy S2 due to its size and sheer processing power. Samsung have not only created the slimmest handset, but also the most powerful. The Galaxy S series carries a range of phones that are capable of hosting a wide variety of operating systems like Google Inc's Android (Linux based), MiMo (another Linux variant), Symbian and Microsoft Windows Phone. Although the Galaxy series presently uses Google's Android as the primary OS, if you wanted you could try out an alternative operating system. Most people choose to stick with Google Android though due to its ease of use and the sheer number of apps that are available free of charge through the Android Market.
And it's very difficult not to rave about the features either. Simply put, it has everything. From communication standards like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS and 3G to hardware compliance from TV to the standard 3.5 mm audio jack. Camera, sensors (gyroscope and proximity) and accelerometers etc are some more features to add. Now, power retention has, is and will always be an important issue as long as scientists don't integrate phones into the human body. This miniature version of a full blown computer is powered by a standard Lion battery.
This Smartphone is driven by Googles highly successful Android Operating System version 2.3 (Gingerbread) which has brought a number of important updates and fixes. All the computing power comes from a dual core processor either Samsung's Exynos or Nvidia's Tegra depending on when the handset was made.
It has an internal memory of either 16 GB or 32 GB; in addition another micro SD slot is present which can support up to 32 GB of external memory. And this insane availability of memory guarantees that every phone call processed by the phone and every text which enters or leaves the instrument can be stored. The instrument also comes with a 1GB RAM.
The next most important thing that comes into our mind is the number of formats the phone can understand and decode. And the Galaxy S2 comes out trumps here too, being able to play most formats that are played on a PC, the handset can also play 'flv' and 'mkv' video files.
