Samsung proved just how competitive they are in the mobile market, when the Galaxy S2 became one of the initial smartphones to embody a large 5 inch display screen and the efficient dual core processors. Hitting the market in February 2011, the Galaxy S2 was the first real success for Samsung in terms of sales.

Thankfully, the handset packs a RAM of 1 GB and dual-core processor, making capable of running the Marshmallow OS. But considering its an older device, the smooth experience usually seen on current devices shouldn't be expected.

Along with a stock-like user experience, CyanogenMod 13 brings a ton of new customization features as well as added features.
