Galaxy S vs Galaxy S ii

Right off the bat, the Galaxy S ll's resemblance to its predecessor, the Galaxy S, in terms of design, is obvious. There are some differences though; the S ll ditches the chrome bezel in favor of plastic, with ports and buttons shifted around. The ultra-sleek (at 8.49mm, it is the thinnest of the four) smartphone sports an extremely slim bezel and a clean design that draws attention to its huge 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. The build is still predominantly plastic, just like the original Galaxy S, but this ultimately gives it an edge — the phone's weight is kept to a minimum at just 116 grams, the lightest of the bunch. Generally, the buttons are on the small side but they exhibit good tactile feedback. We also liked how its textured back adds a better grip to the device.
