Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S2 (Video Review)


Average: 4.2 (76 votes)

After using the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S2 for a few days now I have got to say there are going to be some very happy people when they go out and get this phone.

The phone is overpriced for the Straight Talk brand and might not be a big seller unless they can bring the price down most people don’t have $350 dollars laying around which is how much the phone is currently priced. Price aside it is an amazing phone to use like mentioned in the video and is defiantly one of the best phones that Samsung has ever produced.

The image below of the phone is to scale so if you are using a Desktop or laptop commuter you can get an idea of the size of this phone, it is large but not so much that it looks like it is a tablet or other larger device.

If you are smitten with Straight Talk and have the cash I recommend going out and getting the Samsung Galaxy S2 based on this review.

If you have not transferred over to Straight Talk due not finding a phone that you like then this might be just enough to convince you to go to Straight Talk. The Samsung Galaxy S II S959G is to be released under Straight Talk in the next few months. This phone will unfortunately not appear in Walmart stores initially and will only be an online order only. Priced at just $350 ex tax the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S II will be the best phone by a long shot.

Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S II




nice i been waiting for a good phone like this to come out.i hope it comes out with ics...


What is system will this be utilizing?


Which network will this phone be using under the straight talk brand?


Data through AT&T or T-Mobile? Wontek used to be good for pointing this important detail out, but seems to be ignoring it of late (wonder if they're being pressured by ST or something). I can get better reviews and details from other sites - that particular piece of information was the only reason I preferred to come here, but if it's no longer reported, then I have no incentive any longer to look for this site in particular.


The phone will definitely be running ICS if it isn't already. After the lawsuit that Samsung had with Apple, they are trying to change the way the phone's designs are and it's system is. So upgrading the firmware is one way they can do that.


On Straight Talk, any model# that ends with a G is GSM, if it ends in a C it's CDMA. The article states a G model#, so there you go.


On a personal note, I don't believe the phone is overpriced. Just a few months ago, on one of the major carriers (Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile) this phone would have cost around 650 dollars unlocked and off-contract. Seeing as you buy a StraightTalk phone to use StraightTalk's service, it doesn't bother me at all that the phone is locked to their service, that only makes perfect sense. I was on ST late last year and was happy with the service, but went to Verizon since they had a much bigger selection of phones. I looked at ST's website a couple of weeks ago and saw the S2. I bought the phone that following Monday, and when I got it, I fell in love with it. It's everything I wanted in a phone at what I consider an attractive price, on a carrier I like (no more Verizon price gouging).. It's fast and performance is still up there with the big boys. It might not be an iPhone 5 or an S3, but for those of us who want a great phone with a great carrier with decently priced service, I'd wholly recommend it. And the price of the phone WILL come down as time passes. It's only 350 right now, and I'm sure like other ST phones, the price will drop.


Does anyone know if we can update this phone to ICS via straight talk?


It will use AT&T.


I am wondering if this phone can be a mobile hotspot so I can get rid of my MIFI
