The Samsung Galaxy S II comes to U.S. Cellular Video Transcript
The Samsung Galaxy S2 is a very popular phone for a reason and now it's coming to US Cellular. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET and I'm gonna give you a quick refresh of the specifications and features on this phone. First of all it's about this really beautiful 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. It is really gorgeous and nice and large so you're able to see everything on the screen. The design is also very approachable, pretty sleek brought these rounded corners right here. Some of the other specs are really great as well, 8 megapixel camera that is very good and a front facing 2 megapixel camera which is great for video chats. For the operating system, it is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. No word yet on upgrade but it will be upgradeable. For the processor it's got a 1.2 Gigahertz dual core in there and that is a Samsung Exynos Processor. There are also 16 gigabytes of storage already on the phone and if you want more, you can expand to 32 extra gigabytes of storage with the Micro SD card. One thing you should keep in mind is that US Cellular runs a 3G Network, not a 4G Network yet so this is a 3G phone for them. Pricing for this guy, $229.99 after a $100 mail and rebate that is with the 2-year activation. I'm Jessica Dolcourt. This is the Samsung Galaxy S2 for US Cellular. You can check out the overview and all of the reviews at CNET.com.
The follow-up to the Android-run Galaxy S series is a dual-core smartphone running Android Gingerbread 2.3.
With the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator, US Cellular gains another Android smartphone option. Unfortunately, the carrier's limited 4G LTE access and the weak single-core CPU weigh down an otherwise high-flying handset.
The $199.99 Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the first Android smartphone to rock Ice Cream Sandwich has finally come to Sprint. It's virtually identical to its Verizon sibling except this handset will eventually connect to Sprint's 4G LTE network and also offers support for the Google Wallet mobile payment app.
A 4-inch Super AMOLED display and 1GHz dual-core processor are bright spots on this European Android Gingerbread phone.
With its 3.2-megapixel camera and 1GHz processor, we understand that the Galaxy Admire 4G from MetroPCS is an inexpensive entry-level handset, but we still can't help being disappointed that it ships with the dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
The small, simple Android smartphone was on display at Mobile World Congress.
Samsung's Galaxy sequel brings 4G to the Vibrant-like handset, but it will only run Android 2.2 at launch.
It's got Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a QWERTY keyboard, but besides that, the Samsung Replenish is one of Boost Mobile's most affordable smartphones.
It may never come to the U.S., but that didn't stop us from looking at the midrange smartphone with its 5-megapixel camera.
A more modest addition to the Galaxy S smartphone line, the Android-lovin' Indulge would be MetroPCS' best phone to date, if it weren't for one glaring flaw.
Samsung Galaxy S II (U.S. Cellular) Review
The good: The Samsung Galaxy S II has a large, beautiful 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a great 8-megapixel camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 16GB built-in storage.
The bad: U.S. Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S II has a slower network. It's significantly pricier than other handsets in the carrier's lineup.
The bottom line: With venerable specs, including a terrific camera and large, beautiful screen, the Samsung Galaxy S II is holding true to its claim to fame as the everyman's high-end Android phone.
