Samsung now offers a bigger battery for the Galaxy S II, makes it hard to battle your smartphone addiction
The Samsung Galaxy S II hasn’t yet launched stateside, but in other parts of the world people have been enjoying it for months. The razor thin 4.3-inch smartphone packs an impressive 1.2GHz dual-core chip, but with that comes an extra strain on the battery - and many would wish it lasted a bit more. Don’t get us wrong - the battery life on the Galaxy S II is not all that bad compared to juice eaters like the HTC ThunderBolt for once, but a slight upgrade on that 1650mAh battery would be a welcome addition.

The only thing we can imagine holding you back is the hefty price tag - at nearly $65 (45 euro) at Samsung Italy, it’s a pricey option, but if you happen to live in Australia, it will only set you back some $40. Yet it might turn out cheaper than an external juicer, so would you consider buying it?
