Galaxy S II vs Galaxy S II Plus Samsung has recently showed to the public the Galaxy S II Plus, which is combining the performance of the world wide sold Galaxy S2 and newly enhanced UI and intuitive features designed to improve the overall usability and functionality. Basically, the difference between Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S2 Plus is the fact that the later has Android 4.1.2 and all these new features. Probably Samsung is only taking benefit of the fact that galaxy S2 users didn't get the 4.1.2 update and probably will still have to wait to get it, and thus people will decide to buy the Galaxy S2 Plus only because it has the 4.1.2 Android version. Otherwise, there is no difference in the specs of the two phones. Featuring Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, the Samsung device runs smoother, transitions between screens a lot faster, and gives the user enhanced usability and a new notification panel. All the performances included by Android 4.1.2 are enhanced by the 1.2 GHz processor. The nature-inspired user interface include Direct Call which enables calling by only taking the device to your ear, Smart Stay dims the screen according to the user facing towards the screen, and Smart Alert keeps you updated with your notifications by only picking the device. Galaxy S II Plus includes Popup Video that allows you to play a video in a resizable screen while doing other activities on your device. Voice control and Voice unlock allow you to control the phone only with your voice. The camera has a new zero lag function that allows you to take photos of moving objects without any delay. Group Facetag and Face Zoom are included also.
