Samsung Galaxy S II unboxing and demo video

GalaxyS2-main The Samsung Galaxy S II (Galaxy S2 or i9100) has to be one of the most eagerly awaited handsets of the year. Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S was hugely popular selling tons of units and really making its mark.

The Galaxy S2 is one of only a few handsets around at the moment to have a dual-core CPU and this one is really special. a 1.2GHz Arm-cortex A9 CPU with a Mali-400MP GPU along side. That along with 1GB of RAM and 8 or 16GB of internal storage makes this one of the best specified handsets out there at the moment.

Then there’s the 4.3″ Super AMOLED screen complete with Gorilla Glass.

Perhaps one of the most striking things, when you consider that spec, is that the whole lot fits in a handset thats just 8.5mm thick and weighs just 116 grams!!

I’ve only had my review model for a few hours and already I think it’s awesome. Check out the video I have below, I can scarcely call it an unboxing video as it’s one of the longest I’ve done in a long time. This is the edited, cut-down version and it’s still over 30 minutes long!  Make yourself a coffee and enjoy the show.
