Samsung Galaxy S II: Best smartphone for 2011?

N.B. You can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S II by following these instructions. Retail price is PHP 29,990. Discounted price is PHP 26,990.

For the past three weeks I’ve been playing with both the prototype and the actual unit of Samsung’s lastest Android gem, the Galaxy S II. I first got to hold the device back in Mobile World Congress ’11 in Barcelona and it is, without doubt, the most highly anticipated smartphone in the Android universe because it’s simply mind blowing.

This phone deserves to be reviewed from two perspectives: (1) as the successor to the first Samsung Galaxy S which was also highly popular and (2) from the perspective of an Android device and how it compares to the competition.

Contest: Guess the Price of the Samsung Galaxy S II!

Last week I asked you to guess brand and model of our mystery phone. Well, it was unanimous — everyone seemed to get it right! The photo shown was the back part of the Samsung Galaxy S II. I’ve been playing with it for a couple of weeks now and the good news is that Samsung Philippines is making this phone available very soon!

This is the Samsung Galaxy S II running on Launcher Pro with a custom icon pack download.

We decided to tweak the contest a bit to make it more exciting. Since we all know the phone, now we have to guess .. THE LOCAL SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE! You can search for clues all over the Internet — the USD price and if you owned the previous Samsung Galaxy S, you might have some idea of how they will be pricing this next model.

The 3 winners will get a special gift pack from Samsung. Secret =)
