The Galaxy S II. It's one of the hottest Android smartphones of 2011, and thanks to Sprint, you can get it at a subsidized (read: cheaper) price! Aaron reviews the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, and while it packs the same 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos processor as the original phone, it has a larger 4.52-inch Super AMOLED display and a 1,800 mAh battery. Despite the added screen size and larger battery, it's incredibly thin at 9.66mm and easy to pocket. Other specs include an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing shooter, and Android 2.3.4 with TouchWiz 4.0.
It's available at Sprint now for $199.99, which is a nice price in comparison to Verizon's 4G lineup. Is it worth buying, or should you hold off for the season's other Android superphones? We'll figure it out. Part 1 of 2.
