Hardware Talks :
With 1.2 GHz dual-core application processor and advanced 4G (HSPA+ 21 MBPs) connectivity Samsung Galaxy S II is best in terms of power and performance .Dual core processor will make multitasking easier on the phone. But in places like like India , there is always an issue with the connectivity ,even 3G is not working in most parts of the country . In places where its working,speed is not that awesome , in that case you will regret that you cannot use the full power of this awesome phone . It also have features like Bluetooth 3.0 +HS and Wi Fi direct which will help you reduce your data transfer timing .
