There’s no denying it’s one hell of a phone – it’s still our #1 recommendation – and Samsung is reporting that their Galaxy SII smartphone is proving to be a monster hit around the world.
Since July, the phone has managed to double its sales total from five million to ten million units sold – and with US sales yet to register, it looks like this is going to prove to be one of the most popular smartphones ever.
Brits have already gone gaga for the Galaxy S2, with the handset outselling the iPhone 4 for three months in a row in the UK, and a recent poll revealing it to be the most desirable phone in the planet.
