After 5 million units sold in the first 85 days across the globe, American fingers have finally been graced with the presence of Samsung’s Galaxy S II.
AT&T’s offering is more of a sharper-edged rectangle than Sprint’s, but it is still one of the lightest, thinnest smartphones we’ve ever seen. AT&T claims they’ve got the thinnest 4G smartphone on their hands, measuring 8.89mm at its thinnest. It certainly fit in our back pocket, but it was wide enough that we’d be worried to sit on it. It showed no signs of being unsturdy, but the plastic shell doesn’t feel like it could take much of a beating, either. Did we mention how light it was?
A new feature allowed for quick scrolling through app drawers, using numbers for quick visual differentiation.
The main video camera records in 1080p and captures stills at 8MP.
