Want some up-close shots of the Samsung Galaxy S II ? Well, if our photos from back in February weren’t enough, we’ve now added these extra shots of the handset we have on loan from the lovely people at Clove.
I’m using it fairly heavily at the moment and seeing around 25% battery life left at the end of the day – that’s a marked improvement on other handsets I’ve used. Today it has been on since 7AM with 1 hour of iPlayer usage, 30 minutes of streaming audio, about 10 texts, 20 minutes of internet browsing and roughly 20 minutes Tweeting. WiFi has been on during that time but, as I write at 9PM (14 hours after powering on) I have 33% battery left.
I’ve got a couple of example videos from the phone, both filmed in full 1920×1080 HD. This first one shows the constant focus whilst the second one, filmed last night, shows how good it’ll film in the dark – during a storm! I actually trimmed the second video down with a fre Android app called “VidTrim”. Both were then uploaded direct from the phone to YouTube over WiFi so, oh.. you better add that to today’s activities. 33% battery life remains.
That full HD 1080p recording is pretty stunning I must say. Hmm.. let me just check something now. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc camera – amazing. Samsung Galaxy S II camera – amazing. HTC? You need to step up your game.
