Samsung Galaxy S II review: Eye-popping Gingerbread


What do you get when you merge Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch high-end screen, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and 4G capability? Simply Samsung's best smartphone to date.
The Samsung Galaxy S II (first announced at Mobile World Congress) impresses with a long list of top-shelf features that overall deliver. Not every design element is perfect and we weren't always able to maintain 4G-like speeds, a hurdle that's hardly surprising given this model is an unlocked handset that's unoptimized for US networks.
However, the FCC's recent clearance leads us to believe that the Galaxy S II is bound for our shores soon, and we can't wait. After all, the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display alone makes Gingerbread look good enough to eat.
