AT&T Samsung Galaxy SII Ready To Party

Well happy October 2nd to you too. Today, Samsung’s Galaxy S II hits the AT&T Network.  I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the Samsung Galaxy S II is, in my opinion, the best Android phone I’ve used to date. That’s big.

It features a 4.27 inch, superAMOLED Plus display. Running that display and all the computing is a 1.2ghz dual core Exonys (Samsung) processor. It’s also the thinnest smartphone in the world right now at 8.9mm thick.

I’ve been really impressed with the overall performance.  You may find this to be a tad bit absurd but one of the things that the Samsung Galaxy S II has done better than most every other Android phone I’ve tested (over 50 to date at least), is make, take, transfer, hold and conference calls. I take a tremendous amount of calls and do a lot of impromptu conferencing. I also have to do a lot of switching via call waiting and I know no one else is reporting this, but the Samsung Galaxy S II can just keep up with the way I use the phone.

On the data side, the SGSII on AT&T multi-tasks like a champ.  So far notifications haven’t gotten sloppy and lag and glitch is at an absolute minimum.

Netflix looks amazing on the superAMOLED plus display.  resizable widgets allow me to customize homescreens to the fullest and my pictures look great before posting thanks to the onboard photo editor.

The SGSII is available today from AT&T for $199 on a new two year agreement.

  1. It
    is about time that the Galaxy SII is here! It seems like I’ve been waiting
    forever for it! I just ordered my Galaxy SII from AT&T and I can’t wait
    until it gets here. Judging from all the good reviews I have been hearing about
    this phone, it should be nothing but blazing. It has a large screen, a
    dual-core processor, and it can download fast with 4G. I’m sure this phone will
    be fast at anything! On any phone I get, I must be able to stream movies, so I
    think this phone is going to have no problem doing that. As for the app I would
    use, that would be the DISH Remote Access app. I love this app because it lets
    me stream recorded shows from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver to my phone anywhere
    I am. I can even stream live TV if I want! As a customer and employee of DISH
    Network, I have been using the DRA app for a long time, and I think this app is
    going to work wonders on the GSII. I can’t wait for it to arrive! 

  2. Can someone please do a thorough post on the best way to move  from one Android phone to a new one (especially if its the same manufacturer, Galaxy S1 to Galaxy S2), addressing calendar, contacts, photos and apps WITH data?  The syncing with Google option is not appealing to many of us for several reasons; using Titanium Backup requires rooting the brand new phone (and I’m not even sure it gets the photos).  What I really want is an app I can put on the old phone and the new phone and as I think of things, just beam them over.  Has anyone done that?  Thanks!

  3. that. just like samsung took motorola to court in europe to remove the commercial stating that the motorola Atrix is the most powerful phone in the world. the Galaxy S2 destroys the motorola atrix

  4. thank you. i now know that it has the same size screen as the international. everyone says 4.3″ but they’re rounding up. may i ask where you got your source staying that it’s 4.27″ instead of 4.3″? One more thing, it was never the thinnest smartphone in tiger world even at 8.49. apples iphone is still the thinnest. The reason why is cuz the galaxy s2 has as bump on the bottom of the back of the phone. It’s 8.49 @ it’s thinnest point. Apple took that to court to stop Samsung from saying
