On top of its speediness, it has a superslim design, a gorgeous display, an excellent camera and of course, NFC support.

It’s been five months already since the first Galaxy S II came to the market and, we can attest, its AT&T sibling is a winner just like the original.

I bought mine January of 2012. The only complaint that I have is that battery life sucks, but that's something you're going to have with any Android phone. What's really made this phone last is the scene on XDA - there's a lot of ROM's out there for a phone that's a year and a half old, and I'm...
