The Samsung Galaxy S II line of smartphones is going to be big, just like its older sister, the original Galaxy S series. Today, we have the Epic 4G Touch version, which is Sprint's variant; T-Mobile and AT&T have their own versions, while Verizon has opted out of carrying a Galaxy S II device.
While it hasn't been released yet, I still managed to get one to review for you guys and to give you a special sneak peak. It packs a dual-core, 1.2GHz Exynos processor, which is coupled with a whopping 1GB of RAM. The 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display has a resolution of 480 x 800, so while text is sharp, it could be better.
But now, since we've got the specs out of the way, let's go ahead and unbox this bad boy.
Here is the box. It's nice and simple, and the focal point of the device picture is obviously the vibrant colors that the Super AMOLED Plus display is capable of delivering. Also, strangely enough for a smartphone box, the top is layed out in landscape. It's different, but it looks really nice and I certainly like it.
When you take that landscaped top off of the box, you're greeted by this insanely large device. It's so big! It completely dwarfs my iPhone, but thankfully, it's not difficult to hold. And part of that is due to its weight: it's so light! I kid you not, I almost threw it into the ceiling when I took it out of its box because I thought it would be much, much heavier than it actually is. It's lighter than the iPhone at only 127 grams versus the iPhone's 137.
And here's the rest of the box's contents. I'll make sure to get the review up when I'm good and ready, but I can already tell you that this is, hands down, the absolute fastest handset I've ever used ever. It's incredible.
Is there anything you'd like to see me do with it? I'll be more than happy to take any requests.
