About 18 months ago I worked for Orange and this was then the top spec handset in the shop. Nothing could beat it for spec, call quality or raw power. And a lot of people foolishly signed up for inferior iPhone 4's on a more expensive tarrif. More fool them I suppose.

Fast forward to 2013 and a whole two years since the Galaxy S2 has been launched. And two years is an eternity in the mobile phone world. Has it still got what it takes?

Well Samsung of course haven't stood still, having introduced two successors the S3 and S4. Quad Band, 13MP cameras,4G LTE compatibility. Surely the S2 has been left so far behind it isn't worth considering.

Right?

WRONG!

The S2 was so far ahead of the game at the time it can still deliver an outstanding smartphone performance even now.

Recently updated to include NFC and Android 4.0 the Galaxy S2 is still in there. In fact rivals such as Sony (Xperia T) and Apple( iPhone 5) took almost 18 months to catch up.

And BlackBerry's Z10 took two years!

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich interface is silky smooth and the screen Super AMOLED screen is still a reference standard IMHO.

In practice, I've found the S2 to offer good battery life,superb reception, excellent call quality, great pictures from its 8MP camera. Oh and the video performance ain't bad either. Apps such as Google Maps aren't too slow either.

Drawbacks?

As will all smartphones, battery life is meagre. I found that I have had to keep a couple of spare batteries with me to be safe. The back cover is incredibly flimsy , made from a razor thin piece of plastic and could break. I will be purchasing an extended battery soon so this isn't such a problem.

I bought Galaxy S2 after a thorough review of the phone and continuously monitoring feedback given. I must say, I am not disappointed but truly amazed how intuitive and well designed. I would agree with most of the reviews before and will try to cover some aspects not so far covered in reviews in the hope that it will help other prospective buyers in making a decision to buy a smart phone, after all you would be paying more than for a 42" HD TV.

I have been a iPhone 4 and Blackberry user and use the phone for e-mails and browsing a lot. Before deciding to purchase this phone (now have used it for about a week)I considered Blackberry Torch and iPhone4 and very much aware of capabilities and limitations of these.

e-mail, contacts, calander: you can set up multiple e-mail accounts (I have set up and using 3 accounts: gmail, hotmail and MS Exchange server). All work very well. You can synchronize e-mail, contacts, and calendar of all these accounts on the phone and they appear on the the respective application colour coded making it possible to see from what account it came from. Further you can access e-mails separately on different accounts on the same e-mail app.

Browser is very good and reliable. Yes, flash content can be viewed. Browsing is much faster and smoother than iPhone4.
Apps: Yes, it is not as extensive as the iTunes but there are enough Apps available (some preloaded, available from Samsung, and from Android market). Most Apps are free compared to iTunes. I did not have any problem with the Apps I downloaded so far.
Music Hub: It is primarily for you to download music from 7digital. The player there is not great. But there is a separate App for music which works fine with your downloaded music.

The phone is described in detail elsewhere, is very good quality and has a very touch sensitive screen.

Having said that, the Huawei phone I had previously, though not so touch sensitive or such a a high quality display was able to pick up and respond to poor WiFi signals more effectively. We just returned from holiday in Turkey and my old phone out performed the Galaxy on internet connection each time. I gave four stars because the Huawei was one third the price!

I Love this phone. I won't pretend I get the ins and outs of of the technical side of it.
I'm a technophobe at all, but I'm no wizz. This is a very easy phont to use. I always
get Nokias so I was a bit nervous about going with a make I've never tried before but its so simple.
And stunning, the colours you get on the screen, the clarity of the picture is amaxing, my best firend
has an iphone 4 and it doesn't even compare to the S2! Its so easy to put music on, it took a while
but I think thats because my laptop had trouble keeping up! Thats one of the most impressive thing
about this phone is it so damn fast. I'd given up going online with my old X6 becasue it took so long
to load and was real baal ache, this is wizzy, its zooms!! And thats what I wanted. The apps available
good, I've already used the Kindle app and Vouchercloud and so many more, they're easy to find and download
in just seconds.

I'd also like to comment on what other people have put about the battery, Tiday I've listened to about 3
hours of music, been online for about an hour, made several phonecalls/sent txts, played a game for a bit
and used the camera and the battery has hardly gone down at all. I have got it in power saving mode from 70%
and I have the wifi and 3g off when I'm not using it. I was abit worried by other reviews that I'd have to
carry a charger with me everywhere!! But I don't know what they were doing on the phone to run the battery down
that quickly?!!? If you use it all day online/music/games then yes I suppose it would go down fast but who
has the time for that? Don't most people have jobs?? If you're online that much all day then surely you'd have
a pc or laptop and not just use your phone!! I so far have had no issues with battery.

I'm very happy with my phone and have yet to find any major faults with it!
