Virgin Mobile’s iteration of the Samsung Galaxy S II is officially available today for $369.99. It may not be the most up-to-date Android handset available, but the device still carriers a reputation as one of the best ever. Sure, the S III and Note/Note II (or even the Nexus 4) are all on the market, but the S II is still more than capable of holding its own. The device comes equipped with a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 4.0, mobile hotspot, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera (2-megapixel front), expandable memory and Bluetooth 3.0. Factor in the Virgin’s Beyond Talk with unlimited data and messaging plans start at $35 a month, and you’ve got yourself a pretty handy device.

The device offers brand new hardware components, including a faster processor, and is also equipped with unique parts like a heart rate sensor. Last year’s Galaxy S4 was extremely popular, and Samsung sold millions of units within months of its release.
Is the Galaxy S5 the best smartphone you can pick up right now? Is its camera going to rock your world? Can you really dunk it in the sink? Is the heart rate monitor all it’s cracked up to be?
