Samsung Galaxy S II (Sprint, T-Mobile)
Sure, the GS3 was Samsung's flagship this year, but that doesn't mean its previous Galaxy wasn't great, too. Despite its age, the Galaxy S II still has a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, NFC capabilities, and a lovely 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. It will also be heavily marked down: Walmart is selling it for $79.88 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile, and RadioShack is offering it for free with a carrier agreement from Sprint.
- Overall score: 8.3 (4.0 stars)

The good: The Samsung Galaxy S II supports T-Mobile's faster HSPA+ network and has a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and an NFC chip. The Android Gingerbread smartphone also has a spacious and vibrant Super AMOLED Plus touch screen, 16GB of internal memory, and great camera performance.
The bad: The smartphone is high-priced and on the larger side, and you can't remove bloatware.
The bottom line: The Samsung Galaxy S II ranks as one of T-Mobile's most powerful and feature-rich Android smartphones, but it's somewhat pricey.
