Smartphones have become the must-have gadgets for millions of people in a relatively short time period. Not only are they fast, efficient and powerful, but they are far more affordable than a typical laptop.
Smart phones have hit the ground running this year and there is no end in sight as to when they will run out of steam. One of the newest smartphones announced is the Samsung Galaxy S2. This new phone is not quite as large as the ones that people have become accustomed to. One of the most impressive features of the handset is the new and improved TouchWiz 4.0 user interface. Lets take a closer look at some of the features and characteristics of this UI...
With TouchWiz 4.0 on the Samsung Galaxy S2, users will notice that it is very user friendly and will allow for easy use without the hassles that come with the interfaces on many phones. The Web Browser is among the best features of the phone. The browser has a PC feeling and is displays full web pages where many phones have to chop the web page down to fit onto the phone. With a 4.3 inch display and Adobe Flash capabilities, users will be able to view all of their favourite movies and videos without worrying about compatibility of the video.
Another feature that the TouchWiz 4.0 UI incorporates is the Reader Hub. This is something that tablets typically have but Samsung has found a way to incorporate it onto their new phone. With this feature, users have access to a wide range of books and online magazines. This feature is particularly useful for people that travel a lot and do not want the burden of buying a magazine or carrying books with them while they travel.
Users will also notice that the Samsung Galaxy S2 is very well designed and has a better screen than the typical smart phone. The screen is a 4.3 inch Super Amoled display which gives users better battery life, better readability and a much simmer design. The phone is a mere 8.49mm thick and has one of the slimmest designs in the cell phone industry. This size makes it the perfect product for storing in a shirt pocket and because the user will not even notice that it is there. Overall, the size of the phone makes a huge statement with such a small design.
Overall, the features of the interface on the Samsung Galaxy S2 are fresh and unique which gives it an advantage over the competition. Not many phones have an endless number of features or selling points, but this phone has all of those and users will spend a long time discovering the new things on their phone. Everything from the screen size to the battery life, this phone is the closest thing to the perfect device. Every device has its flaws and this phone is no exception but the never ending list of features greatly outweighs the flaws.
