Those looking to get a good deal on a smartphone this Father’s Day weekend might want to look no further than the offer that AT&T has going on for the Samsung Galaxy S II.
The carrier is currently offering the device up for a mere $9.99 on-contract, which is $90 off the regular retail price of $99.99 on-contract.
Sure, the Samsung Galaxy S II might be an aging device but it’s still a goodie and one of the best Android smartphones to ever grace AT&T’s network.
The device sports a spacious 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display, a dual-core processor that is clocked at 1.2GH, an 8MP rear camera that can shoot 1080p video, a front-facing camera, and HSPA+ speeds. It also currently runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is awaiting its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update from AT&T and Samsung.
Samsung has promised to get the Ice Cream update out for the AT&T Galaxy S II and with the T-Mobile variant recently getting Android 4.0, it should only be a matter of time before the AT&T device gets it.
One of the other drawbacks is that the device runs on AT&T’s 4G HSPA+ network which is a bit faster than 3G but not as fast as the carrier’s 4G LTE network.
It’s also about to be overshadowed by the Samsung Galaxy S III which offers an HD display, 4G LTE speeds and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box to go along with a new design.
However, this device is still a solid one and could make for a perfect Father’s Day gift, especially at this price.
