I was looking for a new phone with a big bright display that was also portable at the same time. As a consumer of all the different Samsung products, I thought I would give the Samsung Galaxy S2 to see how it would go. This device is soooo addicting. The battery life is only 4 hours long, which is very short. But if I turn it to standby mode it’ll last for 2 days. I’m currently writing this review from the phone right now! The email and the home screen is great.
