Samsung i9100 Galaxy S II
Advantages: Camera, media, gaming, apps, storage
I hope I do not come across as biased or one sided when explaining this product to you, due to the fact I am currently the owner to a Samsung Galaxy S2. In my opinion it is the best phone out there at the moment, yes I think it is better than the Iphone 4.
Initially what made me consider this phone was its style, the way it looked. Black represents many things such as professionalism. I wanted a phone with many different apps, as I am someone who likes to be organised. Along with gaming, music and a camera. The apps is just the tip of it, this phone contains an Android market with thousands of applications available. They are sorted out in a neat manner so you can have easy access, you can download many a variety; apps, games, books and films.
You can customize your background, download a cool photo and place it as your background. The front page shows the temperature, where you are located along with the time and date. It can be quite complicated if you decide to purchase it but after a while it will get easier, it also comes with a voice command. You simply speak out loud what you would like to search or write to a friend, and a special technology types it out automatically for you.
If you are a bit of a 'freak' when it comes to being organised there is programmes such as 'Evernote' and 'ColorNote' which will make your life so much easier. There is also another fantastic aspect which your phone will be so worth it, the camera. The 8 megapixel camera takes sleek shots, and comes with flash if you need it for dark settings. You can easily upload them to Facebook or Twitter in less than 10 seconds. It is a touch screen and getting onto other pages, and moving along the screen is very smooth.
There are so many things you can do on this phone, you can go onto social networking sites, take crisp videos along with the photos also with flash, download books (there are free books available), the media is stunning and can fit thousands of songs.
The only disadvantage I can manage to think of is the sheer size, if you are not a fan of chunky phones than this may be a problem. It is extremely thin, very light too. Although the size of it may be off putting for some, however you get use to it after a while you won't even notice it until you compare it to others. If you do manage to buy it, you won't regret it.
Summary: Sleek and stylish!
