Samsung Galaxy S II T-Mobile Review

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?...

This is why I left T-Mobile after 6 years and went to AT&T FOR THEIR GALAXY S2, AND BECAUSE I get 3g on my Omnia 7 now instead of just edge. I hated to leave but I see no reason to pay more for a phone that is not better but in fact less than another of the same brand on at&t or sprint.

Does someone know ever can I buy this phone's battery? It's 1850 Mah battery that can also be place in the "Original" SGS2.

Funny how they forgot to mention Sprint's complete lack of 4G when saying they prefer the Sprint version. Not only that, but Sprint even says it will be late 2013 before they pull their heads out of their asses. Guess I need to change my handle. Just dumped Sprint for T-Mo to grab up this beauty. And I'll finally get to experience 4G. Anyone want to buy a Sprint EVO 4G?

Who writes these reviews?! "If you are strongly devoted to the Galaxy S II idea, and switching the carrier is not a problem for you, you'll surely want to know that T-Mobile’s version IS BY FAR THE LEAST favorable option on our list. Taking into account its higher $229.99 price point and not as buttery smooth performance, Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G Touch is looking A TEENY BIT BETTER." Which one is it?

The thing is was it worth it for a weaker cpu, gpu or a cpu,gpu that isnt as good with Touchwiz? 21Mbps that the Exynos is capped at is probably faster than most get with home ISP's and if ppl could actually hit 21Mbps down consistently thats more than fast enough for a phone. IMO T Mobile shoulda went with the Exynos.

It doesn't matter. There is already a SGSII LTE/HD LTE in the works.
