Smoking’ Hot: Samsung Galaxy S2 Duos
Just a few days back, I and a friend were scouring the gadget area of a super mall looking for a new phone. What we discovered was quite fascinating â€“ instead of people going gaga over the latest Samsung Galaxy S5, the hottest gadget in stores right now is the Samsung Galaxy S2Â Duos!
Now why would anyone want a phone that was released almost 2 years ago (the phone was released on September 2012)? Well, Iâ€™ve found out the reasons why. Read more to learn why!
First of all, the phone has dual SIM capabilities, a very trending feature right now. Almost all of us want to be connected in several networks so having this capability in a Smartphone is very much a welcome treat.
You might think that the S II Duos is a bit bulky because of the added luggage but it is surprisingly light. Just weighing around 138 g with dimensions 129.8 x 68.9 x 9.7mm, youâ€™ll hardly notice this phone in your pocket.
The display has an acceptable width of 4.52 inches or 480 x 800 pixels with 206 ppi pixel density. We would love it if the S II Duos has at least 5 inches of display but the Corning Gorilla Glass protection more than makes up for it. Moreover, the screen type is a Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touch screen with 16 million colors which gives a smooth and crisp display.
For the gaming and movie enthusiast, the S2 Duos has an internal memory of 16GbB with 1GB of RAM with a card slot of a microSD which is expandable up to 32GB.
Now for the selfie lover, youâ€™ll get an 8MP camera with autofocus and LED flash. It also has geo-tagging, face and smile detection, touch focus, and image stabilization capabilities. Never again will your selfies look blurry and never again will your selfies be limited by darkness! It also has a secondary 2MP camera and HD video capabilities of 1080p at 30 frames per second.
The whole gadget is running on Android operating system with a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU. It also comes in black or white.
To top it all off, the Samsung Galaxy S2 Duos only costs around P7,000 â€“ P7,500 so the gadget is practically a bargain.
If youâ€™re on a tight budget and looking for a budget friendly phone that does it all, then the Samsung Galaxy S2 Duos is a match made in heaven for you.
