Samsung GALAXY S II 4G

Samsung GALAXY S II 4G

Great phone but lacks the 900MHz 3G Band, so Optus and Vodaphone are not well catered for with the remaining bands. This is OK as long as you live in the major city areas of Australia, when you go bush, you will be dropping back to 2g and edge so if faster internet is not a problem then this is a great phone and really flies on the Telstra network via the 4G network, which is still in its infancy and not a lot of coverage just yet.
