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.

Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9305 [N/T] Replacement 3200mAh Battery

I was a little disappointed with the standard 2100mAh standard Samsung Battery, it didn’t last a full day for me, and needed charging in under 12 hours.

But this was easily fixed by buying a higher ah battery.

I also didn’t want to change the back case to support larger capacity ones.

So I settled for a 3200mAh High Capacity Replacement Battery, this one uses your existing case and extends your phones usage by giving it an extra 1/3 over the standard.

Samsung Galaxy S3 4G GT-I9305 [N/T]

I’m very impressed with my new purchase so far, and will be adding a few accessories to go with it, I will list these on my site over the next few weeks as they arrive and give my opinion on each of them. This way you will be able to make an informed decision for your purchase, rather than go in blind like I did.
