Samsung Galaxy S2
Advantages: Great camera, stylish, easy to use, works perfectly even after wear and tear
Disadvantages: Deciding between the headphone port and using a case to protect the phone
I got this phone in white in June 2012, and I absolutely love it! Its lightweight, slick and Android software suits it perfectly. Its got a brilliant camera and takes great picture no matter what light conditions, movement etc. Previous android phones I've owned (HTC Wildfire) seem to get slower and slower after owning for just a couple of months and used to crash a lot, however the S2 has kept speedy and very rarely crashes.
The screen is amazing and very reactive. I believe it is the perfect sized screen too, although you can get a bigger screen, I know someone with the S3 and although performs just as well, it is quite hard to hold because the screen is so large. But hold the S2 up next to an iPhone 4 it definitely puts it to shame! Being able to have 3 buttons not on the screen compared to just one on the iPhone definitely makes the S2 easier to use.
The speaker is great for playing music out loud, however if you listen through headphones and the phone has a case on it can be a bit of a problem as it pushes the headphone jack out and because I use mine through headphones quite a lot I gave up with having a case on it which I regret as I dropped it in my sink and completely cracked the screen and there are many wear and tear marks on the silver bit around the edge of the screen. But it doesn't affect the phones performance one bit (But is going to cost me up to £120 to replace!)
All round brilliant phone would recommend to anyone who is familiar with touch screen smart phones or not.
Summary: Brilliant phone, would recommend to anyone
