Completing the trifecta, T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II is about to embark on its own journey, as it aims to reign supreme over T-Mobile’s lineup. Employing a new processor under the hood and a slightly higher $229.99 on-contract price than its siblings, will it still be able to impress after we’ve seen two great offerings from Sprint and AT&T already? Well, T-Mobile customers are surely hoping that’s the case with this one.


Design:

Sharing a similar design footprint to the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G Touch, with its size, dimensions, and weight, T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II is every bit the same appealing handset that we love. Plastic in nature, it’s lightweight for its size, but we truly like its rubbery textured back cover that keeps it looking clean at all times. However, it’s your conventional looking smartphone slate.

Above all, its 4.52” WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display continues to impress us with its wide viewing angles, high-contrast looks, and vibrant color production. Even though it’s sufficient for most things, its resolution is clearly beginning to show its age – and it’s especially evident with web browsing!

Around its sides, we find its volume rocker, power button, 3.5 mm headset jack, noise cancellation microphone, standard microphone, and a microUSB port – with the latter, you gain video-out functionality with the use of an MHL adapter. Around the back, it features an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash and notches for its speaker. Meanwhile, pulling off the back cover reveals its beefy 1,850 mAh battery, SIM card slot, and microSD card slot.
