[Video] Samsung Galaxy S2 PLUS? You For Real, Samsung?!

Steven Blum


Samsung is in hot water with fans over the phone they released today. Called the Galaxy S2 "PLUS," it is essentially the same phone as the Galaxy S2, albeit with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. As many have already pointed out, even Jelly Bean couldn't be rightfully called a "feature," given the fact that the Galaxy S2 can be updated to run the newest version of Android.

It's got a 4.3" Super AMOLED display, the same 8MP shooter round back and 2MP shooter up front, even the same 1.2 GHz processor.

This is another instance of Samsung trying to cover all their bases and release a phone for absolutely every single price segment. But you have to laugh when coming across any device with the name "Galaxy S2" in 2013. WTF?

Given that Samsung is making billions in profits every year, you'd think they'd try not to put their name behind products which are absolute crap. This is why Samsung will never have the brand power of a company like Apple. But from a business standpoint, creating a phone for every market segment is genius – it's probably why Samsung has had so much sueccess in Android Land.

Sorry to say it, Samsung, but this phone sounds like a stinker. To poke fun at Samsung a little bit for this decision, I created a short video below which expresses my annoyance with the company.
