A New Mobile Phone: Samsung Galaxy II S

July 13th, 2011 · 3 Comments

After a couple years of the Nokia E71, I got myself a new mobile – Samsung’s Android phone which sold 3 million worldwide in its first 55 days. It cost Rs 30,500 ($680).

It is a beautiful phone. Quite light, big sharp screen, and quite an intuitive interface. Of course, the Apps are now being downloaded and tried out. I still think the iPhone feels much better from the experience perspective, but Android is now very good. It is a good fight between the two, so the innovations should keep coming.

I intend to keep this as a second phone for some time. With a battery replacement, the Nokia E71 is still quite a reliable talk-and-sms warhorse, and I like its qwerty keypad.

    Just wondering how is your experience so far with this phone? I am deciding between the iPhone 4S and Galaxy SII but cannot come to a conclusion. Pls provide your input with the some of the basic functionality like voicemail, setting alarm, reminders, navigating to various functions, multitasking? Thx.
