To my surprise my Dad bought me this... A Samsung Galaxy S II!! I thought we would buy a simple phone to bring to school with (just to replace my current "phone" Samsung Galaxy Tab w/c is really bulky to bring at school). While it's still new I decided to point-out some of its features.
The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is crowned the King of Smartphones because of its amazing features, Dual Core processors, 8MP AF camera, 2MP front cam, Full HD (1080p) Record and Playback, and Super AMOLED Plus just to name a few.
The Black box is really sophisticated looking.
The phone includes a Quick start guide, AC charger, USB connector, Headset and a couple pair of ear buds.
The phone has an 8MP rear camera which I'm planning as my main cam until I save up for a decent DSLR cam. The images here in this post were shot using Galaxy S2.
Video recording and playback features in the phone are great (sample below).The quality may be different when uploaded (should have uploaded in youtube instead). I'll manage to add some videos at daylight.
As for battery life, Samsung told me it would take 1 to 1 1/2 days until recharging, and 3-4 hours at full charge. But I have to test it out to make sure.
