Here at SuperCheapMobiles we have collated the best free Samsung Galaxy S 2 deals on the major UK  networks in one place.

The tariffs differ from network to network but make sure you get the tariff that suits you best, the one with the your required number of minutes and texts. Don’t forget the increasingly important data allowance, which allows you to use the full internet features of the Galaxy S 2 when on the road.


Running the Android OS, the Samsung Galaxy S 2 will need a lot of data allowance, 3 Mobile offer the best data allowance with 1GB data a month which should be enough for causal use of the internet. If you need lots of minutes then 3 Mobile again offer the most lucrative deal with 900 minutes included.

If you send lots of texts then Vodafone, O2 and Orange offer unlimited texts but please note they come with a fair usage policy. 3 Mobile does include a large 5000 texts but that may not be enough for your needs.

If you want a cheap line rental then 3 Mobile and Vodafone both offer £30 a month contracts. However 3 Mobile probably offer a bit more with the large 1GB data allowance and 900 minutes.

Samsung recently unveiled that the Samsung Smart View app is available for the Samsung Galaxy S 2. The Smart View app allows users to watch TV through their Samsung Galaxy S 2. However you need to link it first to a Samsung Smart D7000/D8000 TV, which start from a pricey £1300 but do have LED screens and 3D compatibilty.

This isn’t the first time Samsung has offered TV content using your mobile phone. In 2010 they launched the Samsung Remote, allowing you to watch the same TV programme that you were watching on your TV on your mobile phone. The intention was that you wouldn’t miss any of the programme and could watch the programme anywhere in the house, when making a cup of tea for example.

This idea didn’t really take off so Samsung has created the Smart View app. The app allows you to watch whatever programme you want instead of the same one. The idea has very big potential, especially with use with tablets. The Smart View app will be out for the Samsung Galaxy Tab later this year, and is currently only available on the Galaxy S 2.

Guy Kinnell, Marketing Director for TV, Samsung UK said “Samsung Smart TV is leading the ‘smart revolution’ not only with the features of Smart TV itself – such as rich content, 2D and 3D picture quality, smart functions and design – but also with input devices using our Qwerty smart remote control, the Samsung Remote app, and now with Smart View,”

HTC released the Desire S as a successor of the popular HTC Desire. The Desire was a popular phone among consumers and mobile phone experts. The Desire S was released in March 2011 and since then other phone manufacturers have started to release incredibly powerful smart phones, the Samsung Galaxy S 2 being the most notable. In an effort to compete HTC have released the HTC Sensation to compete with the Samsung, but is the HTC Sensation that much better than the HTC Desire S?

The HTC Sensation does have incredible specifications and with a dual core processor it is definitely better than the Desire S when it comes to loading times and dealing with large files. The Desire S has thrown itself in direct competition with the likes of the iPhone with a 3.5″ screen. The Sensation on the other hand has gone for a massive 4.3″ screen. This makes the HTC Sensation a  bit more clunky but it still fits in the hand perfectly, weighing 18g more than the Desire S.

Both smart phones run Android v2.3 Gingerbread as their operating system. They both also have the HTC Sense user interface, making them both easy to use and up to date with software.

The Sensation has a higher screen resolution 540 x 960 pixels compared to the lower 480 x 800 pixels in the Desire S. Both phones use the same S-LCD panel, providing stunning display quality.

The HTC Sensation has a dual core 1.2GHz processor, compared to just the single core 1GHz processor in the HTC Desire S. This puts the Sensation way in front of the Desire S in terms of processor power but it isn’t the most notable difference when using the phones for light use. The Desire S is no slow phone though and has a decent 768MB of RAM, same amount as the Sensation.

The Sensation has a very impressive 8MP camera, whilst the Desire S has only a 5MP camera. They both have 0.3MP front facing cameras however.

Overall the HTC Sensation is the better phone but the Desire S is still a very good phone and would be more than adequate for many consumers. However if you find the right HTC Sensation deal then it is well worth picking one up!

Ofcom, the government regulators for telecomunnications, has said that the introduction of 4G on mobiles may affect the reception signals of digital television.

Ofcom said that 3% of homes that use Freeview could be affected by the introduction of 4G on mobile phones. These houses could be badly affected due to the arrival of the high speed mobile internet in 2013.

Despite offering quicker internet speeds the 800MHz frequency band is very close to the frequency used by digital televeison. Possibly severly affecting both signals, casuing a slowdown or loss of service.

Ofcom have now started a research program in an effort ti change the filters for mobile base stations and changes to aerials using reorientation. This is all in their plan to help households that may be affected by the 4G signals produced, when it goes live in 2013.

They also plan to counsult those affected and see what the impacts may be. All this research and consultation will be funded by those compaines who buy a license for 4G signals.

The big question though, is which phones will juse the new superfast 4G signal? The latest set of smartphones, Samsung Galaxy S2 and HTC Sensation doesn’t feature it but it sure is a big thing for the future!

The boss of France Telecom, owners of Orange, Stephan Richard has hinted at Apple wanting to reduce the size of the iPhone 5. Apparently Apple want to make the iPhone 5 much thinner than previous devices, allowing the iPhone 5 to compete with the latest smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S.

Richard said that Orange was working with the electronics giant, Apple, on even smaller SIM cards than the micro SIM. Allowing for more space within the iPhone. Speaking to All Things Digital Richard said:

“We are going to work with [Apple] in order to standardize a new format of SIM which takes into account our needs with security and authentication and also is compatible with their wishes in terms of size.

“I understood that the next iPhone would be smaller and thinner and they are definitely seeking some space.”

It looks like space within the iPhone 5 comes at a premium. So much so that Apple wanted to get rid of a SIM card all together, using virtual identification instead. This is quite a u-turn considering Apple released the iPhone 4 with the micro SIM, a card with just the chip on. However Orange weren’t too comfortable with the idea, seeing it as a potential breach of customer privacy and security. The Orange boss said:

“Apple has been working for years on reducing the size of SIM cards because they need space in the phone. They even thought about a device without any SIM card, that is what is known as the e-SIM project.

“All of us told them it was a bad idea because the SIM card is a critical piece of the security and authentication process. It would be very difficult for a telco or carrier to manage the customer relationship.

“I think that they understood this point. We had a very constructive exchange and dialogue with them.”

So it looks like Apple want the iPhone 5 to be the thinnest smartphone on the market and are currently struggling to do so. The on question everyone is asking though, when is the iPhone 5 release date?

The two latest smartphones from Samsung and HTC go head to head in a Samsung Galaxy S2 v HTC Sensation comparison!

Both the phones are the first batch of smartphones to contain a dual processor, both running at 1.2GHz there isn’t a great deal of difference between the two phones when it comes to processing power. The HTC Sensation has only 768MB of RAM, compared to 1GB of RAM in the Samsung Galaxy S2, this allows the Samsung Galaxy S 2 to gain slightly faster loading times and can deal with lots of data at once more efficiently than the HTC Sensation.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 has a large 16GB or 32GB internal memory, which is massive compared to the HTC Sensation’s 1GB. You can expand the storage space in the Sensation using a microSD card upto 32GB.

A department where the HTC Sensation beats the Samsung Galaxy S2 is with screen resolution. Despite using the Super AMOLED Plus technology, the Samsung has a slightly lower screen resolution of 480×800 pixels compared to 540×960 pixels in the HTC. The Sensation also has dual LED flash, one more than the Galaxy S2. The HTC’s screen of 4.3″ is only slightly bigger than the Samsung’s of 4.27″. Both provide a very good screen size allowing for easy navigation. The Sensation features 2 cameras, a 8MP back facing one and a 1.2MP front facing one for video calling. The Samsung also has 2 cameras, the front which is also 8MP but the front facing camera is slightly better at 2MP, pipping the HTC Sensation when it comes to the cameras.

The HTC Sensation weighs a heavy 148g compared to just 116g for the Samsung Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S 2 is also an incredible 2.8mm thinner than the HTC. The Samsung phone is just 8.49mm thin, the HTC a bulky 11.3mm.

All in all both phones are really good, high quality phones but the Samsung Galaxy S2 probably just pips the HTC Sensation. Main reason is due to the weight and size, also the better front facing camera which is very useful for video calling. The HTC Sensation isn’t of the thin and light category of smartphones but still lies comfortable in the hand.
