Samsung Galaxy S2 vs. BlackBerry Bold 9900: Review of Specs

By Gary Johnson - May 10, 2011

The Samsung Galaxy S2 has been in the news a lot lately but there are many new impressive devices coming to the market. Today we have a look at the Samsung Galaxy S2 vs the BlackBerry Bold 9900, and review of the specs.

Paul Briden of Know Your Mobile is reporting that the Galaxy S2 has a more modern look to it and weighs virtually nothing. The BlackBerry on the other hand looks a bit cramped and unattractive, it also feels quite heavy. It is nice to have a QWERTY keyboard but is at the expense of the touch screen being pushed up to the top of the handset.

Both the screens on the devices have excellent picture quality with the Samsung measuring 4.3-inches, compared to the small 2.3-inches on the BlackBerry. The operating system on the Bold has impressed so far, with the browser being much quicker than older versions.

Android Gingerbread comes on the Galaxy S2 which is much easier to use than its predecessor. The Samsung has a dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 processor, while the Bold uses a single core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm 8655 Snapdragon.

Camera wise the Bold only has one shooter which is 5-megapixels, while the Samsung has an 8-Megapixel on the back and a secondary 2-megapixel on the front. It was found that the latest BlackBerry is one of the best to date, but the Galaxy S2 comes out on top of the two handsets.
