Samsung Galaxy S II

As a follow up to the Samsung Galaxy S I, this phone outshines its predecessor
in a hundred different ways. Not only is it more user friendly than the first
version, it is just about the most user-friendly phone on the market. The
display is bright, and the processor is dual-core. The eight megapixel camera
comes with an LED flash, and the phone features a full gigabyte of RAM.

This is also one of the lightest smartphones out there, weighing in at only
about four ounces. The Galaxy S II is a serious force to be reckoned with.

smartphones available. The panels are scratch-resistant, meaning less wear and
tear, and the phone weighs only about five ounces total.

all previous versions in this aspect as well. With all the speed and features
of the iPhone 4, a fast mobile broadband connection is definitely a necessity
