We will remember this model. Samsung has already made several of these successes


<! –->

For many years, the Samsung Galaxy S has defined how to look for first-class smartphones with Android. Despite the improvements from year to year, the competition has overtaken them in recent years and has lost its former "defining" superiority. However, our current impressions of the Galaxy S10 range say that these are the machines that give Samsung an edge and define how a conventional smartphone should be. And that after a few years we will remember them very well and remind them as one of the best pieces of the entire line of models.

Legendary Duo

Today we are mainly remembering two types. The first is the legendary Galaxy S II. Yes, there is of course the first Galaxy S to start the line of models, but in fact, Android smartphones were in their infancy and only the Galaxy S II made real progress and has become a memorable smartphone. Even though his equipment is obviously ridiculous today, he had everything and showed the real potential of Android smartphones.

In addition, this outdated machine really works great: in 2011 it was equipped with Android 2.3.4, but was officially upgradable for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It's likely to be similar to the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 last year, but this year's Galaxy S II is a fully functional smartphone. Once Google has finished supporting the system, you will no longer have access to new Google Play apps.

Obviously, an outdated phone does not deal with many modern applications nowadays, most of them require newer versions of the system, hardware or software would not suffice for them. But when we turn on some historic S II today, we're still amazed at how good its small display is with a relatively small resolution and how agile the system can be after years of being. It was simply a very timeless machine that made Samsung extremely successful.

For the first time with a wave

The second model, which, in our opinion, stands out in the historical line of the Galaxy line, above the other representatives, is the Galaxy S6, mainly due to its variants of edge. They were the first representatives of this series with a side curved screen to define the design of the S models until today. In the S6 series, Samsung chose a similar approach, which has returned (albeit slightly differently) this year. There was a classic S6 with a flat screen, then a S6 border of the same size but a fold and then the S6 + border with a larger curved screen.

At that time, Samsung chose the triple model, which differs minimally, but will attract another customer. In addition to this year's S10 series, Apple is also using this principle with the current iPhones (XR, XS and XS Max). This also shows how the concept of the S6 series was timeless. The main change was mainly design and again S6 was successful in hardware, so it is not really a problem to use the phone until today, although some restrictions come again. From Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, the phone has improved on Android 7.0 Nougat, which is already starting to lose a bit.

The S6 series also made significant advances in the camera industry, with optical image stabilization appearing for the first time in the S-Series. So, to this day, this smartphone does not shoot badly, although progress in recent years has evidently nullified its quality. Still, the S6 does not belong to the old iron, which is not very common in the field of Android smartphones. However, we do not encourage you to buy it today, which obviously does not make sense in terms of the support and performance of today's middle class phones.

And the others?

So far, the Galaxy S II and S6 Edge are the most outstanding smartphones of the legendary high-end. This year, they will be accompanied by the S10, which brings more positive changes than previous developments, and for which Samsung also worked on the design. They are really a perfect example of conventional technology, even cutting edge, at the time of the advent of flexible displays.

What about seven other representatives of Galaxy S? Of course the first generation will remain a legend, but it was only the first steps. The Galaxy S3 came up with an unusual and rounded design, but above all it had to face a much stronger competition. At that time, Taiwan's HTC and its smartphones made great progress over the next few years: whether it's rival S3 One X with a polycarbonate body, or the incredible M7 one-on-one that competed with the Galaxy S4 and One M9 camera double and steel body, which was against the Galaxy S5 type.

Then Samsung again forged the innovative leadership of the S6, but the next generation of the S7, S8 and S9 was only a gradual evolution, and Samsung was under pressure from Chinese manufacturers with a more aggressive pricing policy and better technology. Of course, last year's S9 models were not bad, but in a flurry of top models and often much cheaper, including Huawei's incredible P20 cell phones, they were really tough. But now, with the S10 series, Samsung said it was about to return to the spotlight. Let's see what the competition is for. But we feel that this year, Korean models are better able to fight opponents. Now, hopefully, we will not be able to see more strong S-Series representatives over the next four years (as it is based on breaks between SII, S6 and S10).
