With this display, Samsung sets a new standard of quality viewing on mobile handsets. The Super AMOLED Plus introduces the best in quality in color gamut, contrast ratio and edge sharpness. Using RealStripe screen technology and a greatly increased sub-pixel count, Super AMOLED Plus complements the human eye in its ability to recognize images.

The Galaxy S II is truly smarter than the ordinary smartphone. With its pre-loaded voice solution feature, Galaxy S II users can command their phone to call, text and even send an email hands-free. Simply activate the voice solution with these simple words “Hey Galaxy” and the phone automatically responds by asking the user what he would like to do.

I think the main highlights of Samsung Galaxy S II would be its muscle (4G & 1.2GHz Dual Core processor), screen (Super AMOLED Plus), and looks (8.49mm thin with an 8MP camera).
