Samsung Galaxy S II Takes On LG Optimus Big: Show Down

Samsung’s new Galaxy S II (S2) smartphone is reported to be one of the big contenders of 2011, and will be up against many others such as the Apple iPhone 4/5, BlackBerry’s Bold 9900, HTC Thunderbolt and EVO 3D, Motorola Droid Bionic and so on. Here at OSM we have given you many reports on the new Galaxy S II including comparisons, news of over 3 million pre-orders being received just within one month, hands-on and expert reviews.

But what do we know about the LG Optimus Big? Back at the end of March, our very own Debbie gave us news that the Big would be larger than that of its neighbour, the Optimus Black which comes with a 4-inch display.

During the Korea World IT Show held today, Chris Davies over at Slashgear was able to see both handsets in the flesh to give us a hands-on comparison. The S2 fairs better against the LG in terms of processing power. Samsung’s Galaxy will include a 1.2GHz dual-core as oppose to the Optimus’s 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2. Battery life on the Galaxy was tried and tested against the LG, with the S2 coming out on top in terms of how much was used on a single charge.

If we take a moment to look at the screen displays on both handsets, the Samsung will incorporate a Super AMOLED Plus which has been noted on several occasions to give bright crisp clear colors, but the LG on the otherhand will give you the user, a NOVA display reducing up to half of the power consumption used on a daily basis again with crisp colors. On saying this, Chris reported that the LG was a little disappointing with the colors giving a “smudge like” appearance, although the color white faired well giving a sharp presentation.

Other ticked boxes for the Samsung include its lightness, it comes released with Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread as oppose to the LG on Android 2.2 Froyo, the Samsung comes with an impressive 8MP rear camera with the LG making do with a smaller 5MP.

Tell us are you waiting for the new Galaxy S2? What tempted you, or are you a fan of LG and would like to hold out for the Optimus Black or Big?
