Successor to the hugely popular Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S II is the new flagship Android superphone from the Korean giant. Very few phones currently match the specs of Galaxy S II and it is here to stay as the king of smartphones for (at least) the next one year. It is definitely the fastest and the most powerful handset currently available (faster than LG Optimus 2x, G2x and Nexus S). As an example of its sheer power, consider this – it runs 7 fully loaded homescreens, updating live (multiple clocks, news, weather feeds etc) without any glitches!! Have a look at its specs and features in brief -
