If you're looking for an Android phone to rival Apple iPhone, that gives you the same smooth, immaculate experience, you need look no further than Samsung Galaxy S II. Samsung have managed to equal or even, dare we say, surpass Apple iPhone on the majority of specs, all adding up to a magnificent Android phone. Okay, it may not have quite the expensive, designer look and feel of Apple iPhone, but it still sweet, and thinner/lighter than iPhone too!

Large, pin-point sharp, crisp HD quality screens are a must have feature for top-end smartphones. If you are going to spend the best part of half a grand you want the very best you can get. Okay, so the word was that iPhone's Retina Display was unbeatable. Samsung Galaxy S II's Super AMOLED Plus display is the closest to Retina Display you will find in an android phone and may just change your opinion.

Samsung Galaxy S II.

Super AMOLED Plus offers a screen quality of 300ppi ( pixels per inch) compared to Retina Display's 326ppi, making it almost impossible to differentiate between the two. Both smartphones have superior, scratch resistant screens, Samsung S II boasting the very latest Gorilla Glass.

Samsung edges in front of iPhone with its dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 8 MP camera and HD video. You also get a 2 MP front-facing camera with Samsung Galaxy S II. Samsung's super fast browsing/uploading speed should just pip iPhone at the post.

Galaxy S II is the business; super sleek and sexy, with slightly better battery life than iPhone to boot. Also, if you choose to go with android you won't have the inconvenience of a sealed battery unit that you can't replace easily and the annoying antenna problem that iPhone 4 is plagued with (people can't get a phone signal if they held their iPhone in a certain way).

Apple have a lot of ground to pick up if they don't wan't to drop off the smartphone radar in the foreseeable future; they need to get a move on with dual-core processors and 3D technology as android has already raced ahead in these departments. The way that Android phone technology is heading, Apple had better make sure they have some pretty nifty tricks up their sleeve or they will soon be Android's poor cousin.

Samsung Galaxy S II is available on pay & go from

3 Store for £499.99

Carphone Warehouse for £499.95

“Super AMOLED Plus offers a screen quality of 300ppi (pixels per inch) compared to Retina Display's 326ppi”

Ok. The Galaxy S II screen is 22% bigger, 17% lower resolution, and yet only 10% difference in PPI?

By my calculations (unless I am an idiot) the Samsung has 216 DPI… not 300. Not even f.....g CLOSE to the iPhone.


I don't think anyone would notice the difference to be honest unless you are using a magnifying glass :)
