all specification is good but battery was very poor only 1650 Mh battery u wont get the battery back up but reaming feather are very good
So the "plus" diference is the Touchwizz version.? And some people are going to buy it...Samsung please...
nothing change than before SII and design also same so what do you change in SII+
Appreciate your update about futur of SII+
so all samsung fan should look at huawei brands..the spec is more better than samsung brands and the price much more lower
s2 plus plss upgraged life battery still use same battery with the old model s2... designed nice look but battery life so bad....
Obviously more of a GS2 Minus...
Will probably replace the S Advance, and the GS2 will be replaced by the S Premier
they are just making fool out of people y should n e one use 8gb instead of 16 gb
I thought it's a "PLUS"? how come 8Gb internal memory compared to 16Gb of S2 I9100. Samsung should call it Samsung I9105 Galaxy S II Minus.
what is the difference between s2 plus and the original s2??only not the same OS..others the same
Frigging same shitty 1600mah battery! What are they, blind? Ignorant?
No need to launch this phone it is falling short in all benchmark test unable to understand why they have put the plus tag in it if its not doing the work of plus
The new Broadcom chipset evens out the CPU benchmarks with the old S II. In some benchmarks it does pull ahead, but that is only because the device is running on a newer version of Android.
The same does not hold true for the GPU. The Broadcom Videocore IV is horribly weak compared to the Mali400 MP4 quad core in the Galaxy S II. In most benchmarks, the performance is nearly half that of the original S II smartphone. The gaming experience with new, high requirement games will seriously be affected in the new S II plus. However, the phone shouldn’t have any hiccups with casual games, which will be what most users will play.
The two smartphones are virtually identical. What separates them is the slight weight difference of 5 grams. The original S II is 116 grams while the S II Plus is 121 grams. Why the weight difference even though everything is the same? We really don’t know. Perhaps the packaging of the chipset by a different vendor. In any case, you can hardly differentiate the weight difference between the two.
The Galaxy S II Plus only comes with an 8 GB internal storage option while the Galaxy S II has 16 GB or 32 GB options available. Additionally, the Galaxy S II Plus supports SDXHC cards upto 64 GB while the Galaxy S II only supports SDHC cards upto 32 GB.
In either case, you have plenty of storage available to you.
The Galaxy S II Plus will benefit from new features in the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean by Samsung. It’s nice to see a mid range smartphone get many of the software benefits and features of the flagship Galaxy S III or the Galaxy Note II.
The original Galaxy S II will also be receiving the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update next month, thus bringing both old and new devices to level.
Samsung is making the S II cheaper to produce so it can sell more units at a lower price. Also, by simply continuing an old flagship (also really popular one), Samsung is simply taking all the popularity associated with the product name and is blessing it onto newer and cheaper hardware. That being said, the Galaxy S II Plus isn’t a bad smartphone. For a first timer, this will be an excellent choice of phone. The latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean promises a good user experience as well. To the more knowledgeable, they will crib about the weaker chipset but most of the crowd couldn’t be less concerned, and that is where Samsung is aiming this device (or rather throwing it) at.
The only way I see this smartphone receive a thumbs up by reviewers is that Samsung prices it cheap. And to take into account nearly 2 years since the original phone’s launch, Samsung must be making the parts real cheap anyways. And in addition, outsourcing the chipset to a cheaper alternative not only helps Samsung make this smartphone for much lesser, but hopefully price it cheap as well.
