Personally, this is the phone I am waiting for. It satisfies almost all of my technolust, aside from the lack of QWERTY keyboard. Trust me, i’ve already received enough flack from the iPhone friends I used to have.

What’s great about the S II is, well, virtually everything. It’s display is the best on the market, it can decode uncompressed 1080p content natively, is the thinnest smartphone this side of Japan at 8.49mm, features a dual core 1.2Ghz processor that looks to be the fastest yet, and is pretty much as future proof as a phone can be.

So I tracked down a very comprehensive video review, courtesy of Phone Arena, that gives you a very complete picture on what it would be like to actually own one of these superphones. Keep in mind that the particular unit they are reviewing here is a preproduction unit, and as such, has not been fully optimized. Further, its of the 1Ghz variety, but will launch at 1.2Ghz. Check it out below:

 

With the ability to record 1080p video at 30fps, take 8 Megapixel stills, charge the phone itself (one day soon) with its MHL port which essentially doubles as a microUSB and offers HDMI connectivity for compatible HDTV’s, it simply doesn’t get any better folks. Oh, and let’s not forget that it will have 16GB/32GB of on-board memory.

Any thoughts? It’s looking like it’s going to take quite a bit of time stateside, and perhaps may even get to Canada first. The lucky folks in the UK will be able to get their hands on it as early as May 1st.
