This is as close you can get to S2 its big brother. The design is almost similar to S2 and even better, they've added a back metal panel to give it a premium feel.The SC-LCD screen is very natural. Browsing is a pleasure and so is watching movies. Besides, you also have Dual core processor with Tegra 2 chipset which is the latest in the offerings by NVIDIA. High end Gaming should be a breeze.At this price, you can't get any better deal
