Samsung launched the first instalment of its flagship Android line back in 2010. This was of course the Samsung Galaxy S, the phone which at the time was one of the most commercially successful models for the South Korean manufacturer. The device paved the way for future instalments of the series, helping Samsung to become the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world.
The following year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S2 which also became a huge hit. Although this has since been succeeded by newer instalments of the series such as last year’s Galaxy S3 and the recently announced Galaxy S4 which looks set to be the dominant smartphone of 2013, the Samsung Galaxy S2 remains of smartphone of choice for millions of people around the world. With the launch of new additions to the Galaxy S range, many networks reduced the prices of Galaxy S2 contracts, make it an ideal choice for those on a budget but want a feature packed smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 remains a popular choice in the UK, with most networks are offering deals for the phone on pay monthly contracts. One of the networks to do so is Three, which has recently taken to Twitter to inform users of the new software update available for the Galaxy S2.
