Samsung Galaxy S II

So I finally got to get my hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S II when my friend bought one.

I had already done a small review on it in a previous post when I was comparing it withe the new HTC Sensation and Motorola Atrix. I stated it came in second for me out of the new dual-core flagship phones.
It was good to finally play around with it but once again it had me coming to the same conclusion that it is very iPhone-esque e.g. the shape and feel plus the app drawer is side scrolling (iOS) instead of the usual vertical scroll.

I enjoyed that it was running very smoothly with most things that I threw at it multitasking, games and a movie... but so does my Desire HD. Although I have still not been won over by Touchwiz 4.0 even in the 'flesh' .
I do like the feeling of how slim it is although the AMOLED screen did not do much for me.

HTC fan boy still here to stay, bring on the Sensation

Still busy

Sorry for the lack of posts recently guys, was hoping on doing a a review of a few of the honeycomb tablets out but I have been busy with my new temporary job I mentioned.
So I get to sit on my back side for about 8 hours a day re-tagging blinds(Venetians and roman blinds) with new safety stickers and labels, putting two and two together when comparing the old tags with the new ones I'd assume some children have been killed by strangulation from the cords which is very sad and of course we be a huge crapstorm for business.
Oh and $20 p/h isn't to bad for this mind-numbing-ly boring work considering haha
