Complementing the device’s impressive 1.2GHz dual-core processor the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is also up for the Phone of the Year prize in the 2011 T3 Gadget Awards, boasts a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities, Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and a minimalist form factor.

“The response this year to the Phone Awards has been phenomenal – proving that the mobile phone market is the most exciting area of tech at the moment,” Marc Chacksfield, deputy editor of TechRadar announced.
