The S II's front panel is black and unassuming as it bears only the T-Mobile brand.
After spending the past five days using T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S II, eWEEK gives it a big thumbs up overall. T-Mobile's Galaxy S II costs $229 with a contract and sports a speedy 1.5GHz, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor. With a Super AMOLED Plus touch screen, T-Mobile's S II sports more or less the same display as the Galaxy S II, Samsung Epic 4G Touch. Both have 800-by-480 resolution. When 4G was live, we couldn't complain about the device's raw power or performance. It downloaded applications such as Google+, Facebook and Twitter for Android in just a few seconds. But 4G coverage is sparse in Connecticut, so we had to go to the border of New York to test it. When we did get to access 4G, the device hummed, but the network chomped the heck out of this handset's impressive 1,850-mAh battery supply. Moreover, consistent with T-Mobile's generally poor coverage in Connecticut, the S II dropped coverage at times throughout Fairfield County. Yet from an aesthetic point of view, T-Mobile's smartphone trumps the S IIs from both AT&T and Sprint. Check out why in this slide show.
