Samsung Galaxy S2 Beats iPhone 4 for Phone of the Year 2011
The Samsung Galaxy S2 has been voted the phone of 2011 by readers of T3 magazine in the UK; Many may not see this as much of a surprise considering the sales volumes of Samsung’s flagship phone, but the stats read differently with either Apple or HTC phones winning the award in the last 3 years.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 beat out stiff competition from its main rivals in the ‘Best Phone of 2011’ category, which included Apple’s obvious iPhone 4, as well as the HTC Sensation, Motorola Atrix, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and HTC Incredible S .
The Galaxy S2 stood out for the quality of its camera, which comes with 8 megapixels (something Apple has just integrated into its latest iPhone 4S model), its sleek aesthetic appeal, its super-bright Super AMOLED touchscreen, and its easy integration with Samsung TVs and other Samsung products.
Just taking a quick look at the finalists, it’s easy to see why Google and its Android operating system are beginning to be the dominant choice over Apple’s iOS, of the 6 phones running, 5 of them run Android.
The Android operating system is enjoyed for its open source policy with more and more apps making their way onto the Android Market for download, recent updates to the system which is now in its latest 2.3.4 stage means that things like administration battery now have been included, as well as other new features.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 has now also launched in the UK in a new white color scheme in much the same way that Apple made its iPhone 4 available in black and white, however the delay of the white iPhone 4 certainly didn’t help the maker. when it came to votes.
Apple has just released its new iPhone 4S which now matches the 8-megapixel camera found in the Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC Sensation and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, but also packs some technology that we’ll no doubt see in future releases from rival manufacturers. like the Galaxy S3.
The sheer speed, design and features of the Samsung Galaxy S2 convinced UK voters. This flagship device still enjoys a sales figure that outshines every other phone available besides the iPhone, and when it gets upgraded to the S3 edition, it could very well receive another award. next year.
