Okay, so your looking for a new phone? and you’ve heard people raving on about “smart phones” and touch screens etc and comparing the Apple iPhone 4S to the Galaxy S2. Well we have used the both of course and don’t get me wrong, the iPhone is a great mobile phone, but Samsung mobiles have brought out the big guns with the Galaxy S2 and blown it straight into second place.
It is not often that you buy something and think that it’s near perfect, but trust us the Galaxy S2 on three mobile is getting very close. In white, it’s sleek, light , bright and super fast. It’s so fast, often it’s instant. I’m sure iPhone 5 fans will be shouting that the iPhone is more “stylish” (which between you and me is), but day to day, it’s functionality that counts. The Galaxy on three is a bit plastic feeling but that does make it lighter and you can live with it. It can also be a bit slippery in white as the white versions are smooth and the black S2 is textured, but they do feel nicer.
The S2 runs the now famous Google Android OS software which considering it’s so new puts Microsoft to shame when you think how old Windows is, yet every new version seems to have more bugs! The geeks at Google seem to have learnt from others mistakes and nailed it from day one. No Nokia N97 lockups!!
In summary when you hold both side by side, the iPhone feels nice but here it is in a nutshell…
The Galaxy S2 (free from the 3 store with a contract) can do all that the iPhone 4S can do, but also much more ! (21 reviews) Five star rating from us for a truly masterpiece of a phone.
