First Look: The Samsung Galaxy S II comes to U.S. Cellular

1:32 /

U.S. Cellular gets it crack at the Samsung Galaxy S II Android Gingerbread smartphones, Samsung's most globally popular handset yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is a very popular phone for a reason and now it's coming to US Cellular. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET and I'm gonna give you a quick refresh of the specifications and features on this phone. First of all it's about this really beautiful 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. It is really gorgeous and nice and large so you're able to see everything on the screen. The design is also very approachable, pretty sleek brought these rounded corners right here. Some of the other specs are really great as well, 8 megapixel camera that is very good and a front facing 2 megapixel camera which is great for video chats. For the operating system, it is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. No word yet on upgrade but it will be upgradeable. For the processor it's got a 1.2 Gigahertz dual core in there and that is a Samsung Exynos Processor. There are also 16 gigabytes of storage already on the phone and if you want more, you can expand to 32 extra gigabytes of storage with the Micro SD card. One thing you should keep in mind is that US Cellular runs a 3G Network, not a 4G Network yet so this is a 3G phone for them. Pricing for this guy, $229.99 after a $100 mail and rebate that is with the 2-year activation. I'm Jessica Dolcourt. This is the Samsung Galaxy S2 for US Cellular. You can check out the overview and all of the reviews at CNET.com.
