Samsung Galaxy S II Built-in screen capture, no root required

For a while now most android phones could only capture what was on-screen using different tools, or applications and many required root access first. Apps like drocap, shootme, or Screenshot ER. Lately the outcry for this to be a stock feature has been answered by a few OEM's. First the LG Optimus and G2x got it, read about that here. Then we recently discovered it was also on the Droid Charge as well. We now can tell you the Samsung Galaxy S II also has a stock built-in screen capture feature.

Samsung Galaxy S II Official Extensive Live Demo [VIDEO]

The almighty Samsung Galaxy S II has already hit Korea and the UK, but has yet to reveal a date for its U.S. release. Either way, with a recent announcement of a NFC-enabled version heading to the UK in June, the device is certainly ready to set foot on our shores any day now. And what better way to whet our appetites than with an extensive 12-minute long demo to show off its power, speed, and cool new UI features.

Samsung Galaxy S II dual-core overclock destroys benchmarks at 1.5 Ghz [video]

It looks like that shiny new and what I'd call extremely thin powerhouse of an android phone you just bought is ready to have some fun. Yes I'm talking about that dual-core Samsung Galaxy S II we have heard plenty about recently. Some of those fancy developers at XDA we are always talking about in the android community have done it again, and already overclocked the SGS II to 1.5 Ghz and that is just the start.

Samsung Galaxy S II vs Infuse 4G Quadrant Benchmark Pummeling

I know there's a mob of citizens out there saying that these benchmarking tests are bad and unreliable and can be fixed to win and etc, etc, but I'm not going to start every single post with this warning - in fact, hold me to this - this is the last time I post this warning. If you don't like benchmarks, don't read benchmarks, and sit on it, Potsie. That said, we've been going through the guts of both the Samsung Infuse 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S II (the Euro version still since the USA version isn't exactly ready for the world yet.) What we're finding is that at first glance they seem pretty similar in their cosmetics. Upon closer inspection, they're COMPLETELY DIFFERENT - and in no small way, let me tell you that.

Samsung Galaxy SII Gorilla Glass Confirmed

It's been confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S II has been designed with Gorilla Glass, that super bendable, and hard to scratch, thin layer of glass which makes a screen extremely durable to every day abuse. The Galaxy S also had Gorilla Glass, so it isn't really all that big of news. But since the Galaxy S II is super thin, there was some question as to if Gorilla Glass was part of the design or not. Now we know.

Samsung Galaxy S II not coming til Q3

This doesn't sound good. I know good things come to those that wait, but these are very crucial times and everyone has been pushing hard to get the latest and greatest out in terms of android phones. According to some new information the Samsung Galaxy S II wont see a launch til at least Q3. This is not good news, but then again they are working with all carriers and will probably launch on Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint just like the first phone. So that might be part of the delay, that and building enough CPU's.

Samsung Galaxy S II Blows up the Quadrant Benchmark

We have all been seeing a lot of dual-core phones on the horizon, and one thing we always do first is a Quadrant benchmark or something of that sort. Now this does not represent real world testing, but it gives us a pretty good idea on what is to come. We have the Galaxy S II here ripping through any other stock quadrant score we've yet to see.
