TouchWiz 4.0

Running on top of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is TouchWiz 4.0. The latest version of Samsung's custom user interface includes enhancements that make the UI more useful and polished, like the ability to resize live widgets and more controls in the notifications area.

Design

Unlike the T-Mobile and Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, the AT&T model has a smaller 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, which in turn makes for a more manageable device that's easier to hold and pocket.
