Interesting new ad/tactic from Samsung, painting those devoted Apple users who line up from the iPhone 4S as fanboy hipster sheep whose faces are stuck to the blogs -- reading about battery life issues and lack of design changes -- until a giant-screened, 4G powered, Galaxy S II tears them away.
Also interesting that Samsung only focuses on the size of the screen and speed of the radio -- and not at all about the Android operating system that runs it.
Make anyone want to dump their new iPhone for a Galaxy S II?
Another week, another baddest ass Android phone on the market, and right now that's the Samsung Galaxy S II -- and Android Central has their full Sprint Galaxy II Epic 4G Touch review up for your reading pleasure. Now Sprint doesn't have an iPhone (yet?) so if you're on Medium Yellow and you need a phone this week then the Galaxy S II is hard to beat. If you're on AT&T, however, you have a tougher decision to make -- namely iPhone 4 today, or perhaps iPhone 5 next month vs. the AT&T Galaxy S II.
Since we don't live in the future, however, if really you really need that phone today, which should you get?
Phil, Kevin, and Rene beta test a new video rig, survive technical problems, and talk RIM results, BlackBerry striking back, next generation Android phones, Windows 8 tablets, and a tale of two iPhones. This is Mobile Nations!
Phil from Android Central went and got his geeky little hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S II phones set to hit US carriers soon -- and come this fall go up against iPhone 5. And... they're big. Up to 4.52-inches of big. So big I'm wondering why Samsung didn't just simplify their branding and call them Galaxy Tab 4.5. (Maybe because Spring Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch just rolls off the tongue so much more easily?)
