1:58 /

With a larger screen, faster processor, and faster network than its cousins, this could be the Samsung Galaxy S II version to take Gingerbread's cake.

-Hey everyone, I'm Jessica Dolcuort for CNET. Today, I've got in my hands the Samsung Galaxy S2 with T-Mobile, slight variation the other Samsung Galaxy S2 phones on the market and one of the difference is the design. It's a little bit more rounded than some of the other ones. Another different is the processor. It is a Dual Core 1.5 Gigahertz Snapdragon S3 processor That's must be a little bit faster and that's demonstrated how quickly you can move around between screens and the screens in your apps. So, it must be a little bit faster than some of the other ones on the market. In addition to the processor, the screen is a little bit faster on this one as well. It is a 4.5-inch screen instead of 4.3-inch screen and does have a super AMOLED plus display, so everything is really sharp, really clear, really beautiful. The color is absolutely hot. In addition to that, there is an 8-megapixel camera on the back that's got auto focus and [unk]. It's a really great camera. I've tested it before on the unlocked version and it performed really, really well. This phone runs the absolute most recent version of android. It's gingerbread 2.3.5 and at this point you can get any more that. It also has an HDMI output, so you can plug it in to your TV and it runs on T-Mobile HSPA+42 network. It's the fastest feature to get on this downloaded at 42 megabits per second, that's pretty fast. The Galaxy S2 here cost $229.99 after a $50 mail in rebate and that is the new 2-year service agreement. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET. This is the Samsung Galaxy S2 for T-Mobile.
