“A great value for money”

Written on: 22/01/2014 by evanwebb (3 reviews written)

Before purchasing Galaxy S4, I was using Samsung Galaxy S2 for over an year. It was suck a cool looking, stylish, easy to use smartphone. It has loads of loads of apps which are so great & can be found in Google Playstore. S2 is sleek, beautiful, 4" display, dual core, 1GB ram, gorilla glass features, & so on. If you are looking for a budget smartphone which can run all your apps & games, go for Samsung Galaxy S2. Regards, Happy & Satisfied Samsung Galaxy S2 User… Read Full Review

“Love this phone, and what a bargain”

Written on: 30/09/2013 by plmy (10 reviews written)

Have had this phone for a couple of years and absolutely love it. Not only has it been great value (compared to my wife's iphone for instance), it's also helped me hugely when I'm out and about for work (picking up emails, finding suppliers close by, the map service, google search, an incredible apps selection etc). If you haven't got a smartphone - recommend the galaxy range wholeheartedly. … Read Full Review

“Great Phone!”

Written on: 07/07/2013 by liamwelsh6 (2 reviews written)

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is an amazing phone, i have had mine for just under 2 years and it still impresses me. since the Samsung Galaxy S4 has just come out i will be trading my S2 for the S4 as i am pleased with the phone style and overall performance. It's very fast and user friendly, all the motion gestures are amazing and really useful (especially the flip over mute movement,) there are more motion gestures on the S4 and am looking forward to using these. Overall if i was going to buy a… Read Full Review

“Very happy with this phone!”

Written on: 19/04/2013 by waltermackey (2 reviews written)

I love this phone. I was in the market for a new phone and have really been impressed with Samsung's line of products, so I went with this phone. The play store (which is their version of the app store) is awesome! I have also noticed that android users get many more apps for free. The camera on this phone is awesome and has a great quality (as does the video). I also love the screen size, which is huge, it really makes everything easier to see. Overall, I am impressed and have grown to love… Read Full Review

Sometimes when downloading an app from play store screen goes blank then mobile restarts up again after closing , This is not a problem for me as when it restarts it goes to where i left off, I also recommend Lookout Security its free from play store , Also on movie tube films play excellent no buffering no cut offs , Sat nav excellent, The only thing i miss is the fingerprint lock which i had on my motorola atrix Thank you for reading jk … Read Full Review

“Better quality expected for the cost”

Written on: 28/11/2012 by Unhappyoflondon (1 review written)

A few days ago Id have enthusiastically recommended the S2 until the phone failed to recognise my SIM. Randomly and out of the blue. According to Google it seems not recognising the SIM is a common problem - the operating system gets corrupted and its the talk of lots of technical forums Despite this Samsung don't have a fix for it - and I'm not technical / foolhardy enough to attempt a fix.


On advice from Samsung I tried a reboot and lost all my data and contacts. I now need to travel across

“New phone”

Written on: 14/11/2012 by thiek2 (11 reviews written)

Just received my S2 and like the phone, but, upgraded from HTC WILDFIRE and unfortunately S2 is lacking in no led light flashing to let you know of messages and also only gives one audible warning of messages instead of repeating as the HTC did, therefore 4/10 instead of 5/10. Camera is a big improvement and connecting so social media is super fast. Back cover is a little flimsy but not a big issue as once it's on it's on. Would recommend a cover as screen looks a bit vulnerable with it being… Read Full Review

“Great Phone, Awful battery”

Written on: 05/11/2012 by supermanheldme (3 reviews written)

Ive had iphones since the first gen came out. Until i was given a samsung i had got bored of the iphone. To a degree that i was ready to revert to a simple blackberry (Please forgive me). Anyway i was given the S2 from someone who had recently upgraded. It took me a week or two to really get into it but its a great little phone. The battery life is dreadful compared to the iphone but the rest of it is great. Only other issue is it has a really bad keyboard to it. The responsiveness of the… Read Full Review

“Best Phone I've had”

Written on: 04/09/2012 by inewyork60 (1 review written)

Works very well. Better screen and options than the blackberry I had before. BUT - I had another galaxy s2 that I lost before this one that didn't work as well. I've tried my friends' iphones but they were too small. I love the screen, it could even be bigger. My friends keep breaking their iphones but I've dropped this phone so many times, no screen damage yet… Read Full Review

“Strong, Powerful, and Overall Great”

Written on: 18/07/2012 by NafasJaan (1 review written)

Great phone that has so many features that I've yet to use them after nearly a year of ownership. Very strong processor with a super-bright screen. I have the T-Mobile version which has the huge screen. The downside is that it drains battery pretty easily (it'd be a good idea to purchase an external battery for whenever this becomes an issue) and it can be hard to carry in your pocket. I would recommend this phone to others, but given that the s3 is out, this phone may soon be considered "too… Read Full Review

“A lovely customisable phone but useless at the same time”

Written on: 13/06/2012

I own both an Iphone 4S and a galaxy S2 and prefer the Iphone by far. The Samsung is not a bad phone, it is in fact very good. the customisation options are fantastic, the openness of the handset returns me to a day whereby I could happily choose a ringtone myself without buying it for a few quid from some capitalist regime somewhere on foreign shores. The problems lie in the fact that the Iphone although fascist in nature is also very easy to use as a phone. The Samsungs texting in particular… Read Full Review
