The editors didn't like

  • Slightly reduced battery life (improved with firmware updates)
  • Plastic shell (but this does make the phone very light for its size)
  • Design
  • The Samsung Galaxy S II is very thin
  • With a light plastic shell that weighs just 116g. It's lighter than the iPh
  • Expensive
  • Fragile back cover
  • Lacks premium feel
  • Audio can be bettered
  • No longer the latest Android OS
  • Filled with app bloatware
  • Menus are confused in places
  • Not as user-friendly as HTC and iPhone rivals
  • Not much unless you are really picky
  • Succeeds in spite of Samsung's software hubs
  • Not because of
  • Flimsy back cover
  • Poor keyboard layout
  • Samsung Apps portal
  • Keen photographers will miss a dedicated shutter key
  • Plasticky build
  • Flimsy backplate.
  • Screen not very bright and doesn't reproduce colours accurately
  • MHL convertor for HDMI ports not included
  • Still entirely plastic
  • Yet another iPhone clone
  • TouchWiz not for everybody
  • There's very little to dislike about the Samsung Galaxy S II. The huge screen and skinny casing can make it slightly awkward to hold
  • And the Android OS gets some slightly useless additions from Samsung
  • But both of these points are minor niggles.
  • Unnecessary software
  • Plastic chassis
  • Flimsy backplate
  • Screen may be too large for those with small hands
  • Screen resolution could be higher
  • MicroSD card slot is under the battery
  • Too large for some
  • Plastic build doesn't feel premium
  • Poor call quality

  • There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is a better phone than the S6 – its camera and performance are both better; in some respects battery life is superior, and the return of storage expansion and disaster-proofing is a massive bonus.Is it good enou...

  • So yes, the upgrade from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich is one of the major pros brought by Google's Android 4.0. If it weren't for it, we wouldn't have had the opportunity to have so many fun experiences. Samsung's Galaxy S2 is among the first smartp...
