Samsung Galaxy S II AT&T Vs T-Mobile Comparison

There aren’t a whole lot of differences between the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the Galaxy S II but the differences that do exist are both important and noticeable. Thankfully we’ve received a handy comparison chart which highlights (in yellow) those differences that are worth considering if you’re teetering on which device (and which network) to pick one up.

Checking out the differences in screen size, data speeds, processor and battery are all major features worth factoring in when deciding to make a purchase. Therefore, check out this handy chart which has dropped into our inbox to get a really good comparison between the two different Galaxy S II editions. Have fun!

P.S. Notice that this comparison chart does NOT list quad-band UMTS/HSPA+ bands for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II. This Fact Sheet does. Which is right?

    These specs are looking nice! Talking about T Mo version.

  • and the price?

    • Flashy4bb

      overall, the tmobile one will be cheaper eventhough the phone itself seems to be 30 bucks more, the service rate and quality will offset that.

  • Santa

    Definitely better specs on the T-Mo version. I really enjoy the extra battery life. ;D

    • Flashy4bb

      can’t beat that. lol

    • Anonymous

      The extra battery CAPACITY is cancelled out by the larger screen. So battery LIFE should be about the same

      • minhajmsd

        The processor makes up for it

  • Frankvallynot

    The only thing those 2 phones have in common is that they take sim cards that it lol the t-mo version is just way better

  • LETICIA GALLARDO

    I kept my Vibrant for a long time, I got the Sensation and I hated it so I switched to the G2x and I love it, I’m thinking of giving my boyfriend the G2x and getting this one would it really be worth it?

    att version better becouse of GPU? Much better in term of performance and grafic.

  • Sharper77

    If i buy the AT&t version and unlcock it so that i can put a t-mobile sim card in it, would I still get at least 3g speeds?? Someone please answer this because i’ve been to almost every site and have not gotten a straight answer yet. Once again, i don’t necessarily need 4g, 3g would be fine. Would i get 3g on the AT&T one??

    • JD

      As best I understand it, you would not get 3G data as that still runs off the 1700/2100 frequency.  

      • Autumn Clark

        The AT&T model has 2100, depending on your area you *might* get 3g, might not. If you can deal with slow while out and about and use wifi whenever possible, you should be fine. 2g speeds are slow, but it also has a lot to do with the hardware. I used to tether my Tmo Dash to my laptop back in the day (can’t believe its been 4 years) and unless I was downloading I never noticed it was slow. Its not just speed, its how fast you can use it.

          Correct me if I’m wrong on the 1700 thing, I don’t remember how the bands work (duel or single choosing the best one)

        • Jeremiah

          The 2100MHz refers to tne European UMTS/HSPA frequency, not the upload-only frequency of AWS 1700MHz. So no, the AT&T model would not support T-Mobile 3G nor 4G if it really is not quadband UMTS/HSPA.

    • Anonymous

      No… it will only support 2G on T-Mobile unless it is quad band UMTS AWS bands. But as of right now until we get confirmation I would just assme no just like every AT&T phone only works with T-Mobild 2G network only. I would just wait till T-Mobiles Galaxy S II comes out and see how much you like it. I highly doubt you will see a difference in the 2 if you are comparing CPU speeds. 1.5 Ghz dual core is plenty powerful and that’s why they had to put in a bigger battery on this model vs. the other carriers. I’m sure this will perform just the same or better then other variants. Just wait to get some hands on time.

    • Martinjoyce01

      No you will not get 3G. Because the the 3G and 4G are the same bands on HSDPA+ and AT&T is 1900/850 and Tmobile is 1700. HSDPA+ depends on hardware/phone your using that can support the speeds of  HSDPA+.  Basicly  HSDPA+ is 3G with faster speeds then the normal 3G but not true 4G. No LTE like verizon has and At&t will be rolling out soon.

      • Guest

        Correction AT&T has begun rolling out LTE in major Metropolitan cities (Dallas, TX and Houston, TX for certain as of last week 9/20/2011.

  • Fred

    the change to snapdragon was not wise.  you’ll need that extra battery to make up for inefficiencies from reduced development time (everyone else gets exynos).  The trade up for pie in the sky 42mbps was not worth it.  i’m waiting … maybe until Jan for the nexus prime.  my only worry is that Tmo won’t get nexus b/c it’s released solely for LTE networks.

    • Zifnab2k

      Agreed, especially since that 42mbps also drains more power.

      Everyone who cares about their Android phone should wait for Nexus Prime… anything skinned is a waste of effort.

    • allofusjw

      cmon man, u believe every blog post rumor you read? what could possibly motivate google to make the prime an lte exclusive device? most of the world still uses gsm. Googles not gonna limit themselves to such a small market. It’s completely illogical bgr vzw hype. its so backwards… suddenly verizon is not only going to have a nexus phone, but they’re gonna have worldwide exclusivity as well? nexus phones are supposed to be developer phones that will work with as many cell technologies as possible so devs around the world can develop apps and test thoroughly test them in the real world on a close to universal device. if vzw gets a nexus branded anything id be shocked. it’ll be the droid prime and it’ll come with bing hahaha!

    We win Data speeds, screen and battery size but they win in Graphics processing(and probably application as well) and Screen quality.

        I’ve heard a lot about ICS being more update friendly that previous OS versions.  Couldn’t tell you anything about HOW it is easier but I believe it.  Even with Touch Wiz, I don’t expect this phone to go beyond 3-6 months after ICS’ release for it to get updated.

        Granite we won’t actually hit 42 but I bet we’ll hit far beyond whatever AT&T is doing on their HSPA+.  And you say we need performance?  Well IMO Samsung’s Touch Wiz 4.0 will be super fast on the Exynos or the Snapdragon.  I can’t wait to do my rapid screen swype test on it when it comes out to see just how much the Snapdragon S3 “under-performs”.

  • Why is NFC optional on both phones?
    I thought that the phones will be shipped with NFC already built in.

    • Zifnab2k

      Probably because you don’t HAVE to turn it on, making it an option… just a guess though.

    Iphone 4 had exynos n graphics were great.

        I’ll be so upset if VZW gets the Nexus (Droid) Prime while everyone else is left to wait on the sidelines for other versions to become available…..I can understand VZW selling a droid version with a discount for its customers, but google should release a gsm version for tmo and att at the same time.  It can be sold thru bestbuy or online for $600 for all i care…as long as its available for us.

        Yeah I can’t wait to get the Nexus Prime…I just got the Droid Bionic on VZW and have a Sensation, G2X and G2 for T-Mobile. The Bionic blows all my T-Mobile phones away. And I am definitely going to get the Prime on VZW when it comes out.

      Exactly, the phone will perform great…the difference between the processors won’t be noticed in the use of the phones…its just a point for people that bitch and hate to bitch and hate about.

      Really, tmo wouldn’t put a processor that will not be able to compete. I’m still with the G2 and. Its 800mhz single core…and there’s no lag to complain about or issues with not enough processing power, its a phone not a pc/laptop and it loads web faster than lots of pc/laptops anyway.

      Truth about processors is that there is so much more than just single core or dual core that goes into making the processor faster and work well…all people see is dual core or not and think they are tech heads…its ridiculous

      • Anonymous

        Actually the physical difference won’t be noted but through use of the phone it will matter. The point of wanting better processors is the ability to play higher quality games, lagless, and more. Slower processing can affect all of those things

    Another advantage that’s not listed is that AT&T customers could have picked one up 6 months ago, out of contract, where as we had to wait til now to get a T-Mobile compatible version.

    Looking at the current lineup, SGS2 is arguably the best phone on T-Mo, even without the Exynos. It’s really the Mali-400 that makes a difference, how big is pending full reviews and comparisons.

    Read what my brothers over at BGR have said. It is coming fast!

    According to research recently released by mobile ad network InMobi, 41% of mobile users in North America plan to purchase the iPhone 5. 50% of those planning to purchase the phone will buy it within the first six months after it is launched, which could propel its current 27% smartphone market share to 41%. InMobi added one caveat: if Apple decides to release a minor upgrade to the current iPhone, just 15% of consumers will purchase the new device. InMobi’s research revealed that consumers hope Apple upgrades the processing speed, screen resolution, battery life and service quality in the new device. 51% of current iPhone owners, 27% of BlackBerry owners and 52% of Android owners plan to upgrade to the iPhone 5. If Apple reveals an iPhone 4S, however, just 11% of iPhone and BlackBerry users and 28% of Android users plan to make the purchase. “Apple is currently the clear leader in terms of compelling user experience and customer loyalty, and we feel that their quality and pace of innovation when it comes to mobile devices will continue to improve the content and advertising experience for consumers for iPhone 5 and beyond,” InMobi vice president of global research and marketing James Lamberti said. Read on for the full press release. This number will certainly increase in aggregate with the launch of the T-Mobile iPhone which is a done deal per undisclosed sources.

      When is the last time you two guys have been to the eye doctor? The ATT version says 1650 mAh and the T-Mobile version says 1800 mAh. The only thing that is better about the ATT version is the processor. And depending on the person, the screen too, for some people, 4.3″ screen is better, for others(me)4.5″ is better.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Pretty even I suppose. 

    To start:
    – AT&T has a smaller screen but with more ppi pixel count which means really that they have the better display. 
    – Tmobile has faster data speeds
    – Tmobile takes it again with the 1.5GHz Dual Core Scorpion Processor
    and to round it up
    – AT&T ties it back up with a tad more juice in the battery and with the smaller screen, should help the phone last a bit longer.

    Pretty good exchange I’d say overall.

    Oh and now for the NEWS EXPLOSION!!! 

    MEEGO has technically been Killed Off, DEAD, SQUASHED, SMASHED, Gone up the River, Kicked the Bucket, Taking the Big Nap, KaPut, Gone with the Wind, Under the Rock, Bathing in the Big Tub, Whisked away, Double “X”s on the Eyes etc and I couldn’t be happier (Well I could but still you get the point)!!! 

    But Wilma, why you?  Why are you happy about this, you ask?  You, the Spokesperson for Meego, the Frontrunner, the Pioneer of Spreading the Meego Word!!!  Well Jinkies (Just had to use a Velma word for this), Grab a seat, sit back and let me tell you why.

    According to Meego’s website, the Partner that Intel was looking for to help further develop Meego after NokElopSoft Shafted them has finally reared their heads and guess who it is?

    *You are DYING to know, I know you are, the wait is just KILLING you to find out, Oh the Anticipation is Building, The Shock Value is Erupting, Your giddy little curious ears are filled with Excitement and Eager Curiousitude (That is a new word now), yes they are.* 

    Well hold on to your seats pallies because non other than SAMSUNG has announced that they are partnering with Intel now and are moving from QT to HTML5 and bringing forth the Meego Alternative OS interestingly named TIZEN!!! 

    It basically does everything Meego did with the Handsets, Netbooks, In Vehicle Infotainment, Tablets, etc and Samsung and Intel have already announced that First Quarter of 2012 will be the announcement of the SDK!!! 

    I am also happy because after Nokia turned their backs on Meego, I lost
    virtually ALL respect for that company. Also, I am happy because I know
    Samsung along with Intel will get us some Tizen Devices out here and I

      aT&T 1.2 Ghz EXYNOS processor is better than T-mobile’s 1.5 QUALCOMM S3 fact.

      • Neoprimal

        Source please.

        Exynos is better than 1.2Ghz Qualcomm S3, but I haven’t seen a single source saying/proving that it’s faster/better than 1.5Ghz Qualcomm S3.

        • Captain James. T. Kirk

          If you had been in this forum when the first info about the CPU-crippled SGS2-Lite T-mobile was getting, you’d have seen considerable discussion about how the Exynos SOC based on the A9 core is clearly superior to the A8-based Snapdragon. Don’t forget, too, that there’s a different GPU in the T-mobile as well. 

          TMo made the change to hook into the modem that supports their 42Mbps net.

        • Neoprimal

          Well, I wasn’t here so “Source please.”

          Telling me I missed a conversation here on the forum isn’t an answer to my request. I’d like a source explaining why exactly the 1.2Ghz Exy is “better” than the 1.5Ghz S3 as a fact, according to baron and yourself (clearly far superior, are your words).

          The discussion(s) I’ve seen thus far anywhere have thrown around scores which prove that the 1.2 Exynos is indeed faster than the 1.2 S3, which is in the Sensation and MT4G Slide, but at this point the question at hand is the tradeoff (Mali 400 vs. Adreno 220 and 1.2Ghz vs. 1.5Ghz CPU), I have not seen anything anywhere which has compared the 1.2 Exy with the 1.5 S3 [as the TMo SGS2 is the first 1.5 DC out there, right?] and so I don’t understand the theory (or fact as some may put it) that the 1.2 Ghz Exynos is therefore “clearly far superior” to the 1.5 Ghz S3.

          So again, I’d like a source so I can come to my own conclusion.

          Thanks.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Pretty even I suppose. 

    To start:
    – AT&T has a smaller screen but with more ppi pixel count which means really that they have the better display. 
    – Tmobile has faster data speeds
    – Tmobile takes it again with the 1.5GHz Dual Core Scorpion Processor
    and to round it up
    – AT&T ties it back up with a tad more juice in the battery and with the smaller screen, should help the phone last a bit longer.

    Pretty good exchange I’d say overall.

    Oh and now for the NEWS EXPLOSION!!! 

    MEEGO has technically been Killed Off, DEAD, SQUASHED, SMASHED, Gone up the River, Kicked the Bucket, Taking the Big Nap, KaPut, Gone with the Wind, Under the Rock, Bathing in the Big Tub, Whisked away, Double “X”s on the Eyes etc and I couldn’t be happier (Well I could but still you get the point)!!! 

    But Wilma, why you?  Why are you happy about this, you ask?  You, the Spokesperson for Meego, the Frontrunner, the Pioneer of Spreading the Meego Word!!!  Well Jinkies (Just had to use a Velma word for this), Grab a seat, sit back and let me tell you why.

    According to Meego’s website, the Partner that Intel was looking for to help further develop Meego after NokElopSoft Shafted them has finally reared their heads and guess who it is?

    *You are DYING to know, I know you are, the wait is just KILLING you to find out, Oh the Anticipation is Building, The Shock Value is Erupting, Your giddy little curious ears are filled with Excitement and Eager Curiousitude (That is a new word now), yes they are.* 

    Well hold on to your seats pallies because non other than SAMSUNG has announced that they are partnering with Intel now and are moving from QT to HTML5 and bringing forth the Meego Alternative OS interestingly named TIZEN!!! 

    It basically does everything Meego did with the Handsets, Netbooks, In Vehicle Infotainment, Tablets, etc and Samsung and Intel have already announced that First Quarter of 2012 will be the announcement of the SDK!!! 

    I am also happy because after Nokia turned their backs on Meego, I lost
    virtually ALL respect for that company. Also, I am happy because I know
    Samsung along with Intel will get us some Tizen Devices out here and I
    CAN’T WAIT!!!

    Can’t wait? No I can’t!!! And you can’t either!!!   Time for the Tizen Takeover, wow that was corny LOL!!! 

    So here it is folks, IOS, WP7, Android and now Tizen will be a 4 way competition!!!  Good Job Intel and Samsung!!!  Now bring out some devices!!!  XD

          It says it has TV out via MHL but if Im not mistaken all gs2s were supposed to have DLNA and HDMI

    This side by side comparison makes me wonder if AT&T wins the acquisition of T-Mobile next year, will we get the best of both specs from future phones?

    I’ll sum up the difference here:

    Why do I keep seeing comments that AT&T’s has a bigger battery.  They don’t, it’s 1650 mAh, T-mobile’s version is 1800 mAh.

      isn’t T Mobiles 1850mAH?

      • Nibbley15

        According to Samsung’s website the specs list the T-mobile version @ 1850mA, Sprint’s @ 1800mA, and AT&T’s @ 1650mA; with talk times not seeming to match the mA at all.  AT&T & Sprint’s both have the 1.2 A9 processor and T-Mobile with the 1.5 A8.  T-Mobile & Sprint both have the 4.5 screen and AT&T with 4.3.  3 phones with the same name and different specs.

    Very negligible differences imo.  I do however prefer the look of the T-mobile variant.  I like the curvatures of it more than the AT&T model.  As usual, the real battles are between the networks and their performance.

    Sadly i have just watched the vid, and 2300 in benchmarks is just sad, i love this phone and have been waiting since i first heard of the s2, but my vibrant is getting higher benchmarks than that on 1ghz. I know benchmarks are not real world but i mean 2300 C’mon son. That 1.5 S3 is complete trash. And what makes people think the nexus prime will get an exyonos chipset also, if the prime come to tmobile it will most likely use the same processor to capture the 42mbps we will not see. Im truly disappointed today, 2300 qualcomm u suck :(

          Like, im almost in tears after that video, we have nothing to look forward to unless omap is 42mbps capable, because tmobile will only market their hspa+ network. So it pretty much qualcomms or lesser from here on out. Sad day for tmo fans, but i remember when mobile syrup first got pics of the hercules, the benchmarks were at 3300, so it went from 3300 to 2300, wtf is going on :(

          Dude I think we’ll be just fine. Yes the quadrant benchmark are disappointing cause it ain’t no exynos, but the phone looked super smooth to me, the browser, the pinch to zoom all that good stuff and that’s what matters. I wish we had exynos but honestly I think this phone will be a beast. The sun spider browser score was in the 2000s which is INCREDIBLY fast, as a matter of fact it is faster than the original GS2 google the scores.

      Nexus is “supposed” to  be using a TI OMAP chip.  The Qualcomm was a personal decision made by T-Mobile(and Telus) to bring us the 42Mbps phone.  Google on the other hand wants performance first and foremost.  

      If the Nexus is gonna be the Bells and Whistles phone that we all hope for then I highly doubt El Goog will use a chip based on outdated tech (Cortex A8)

    • Deon Davis

      I swear you people disappoint me, everybody is such benchmark slut. Out of all the vids Ive seen on this phone it seems just as fast in everyday usage as the exynos powered sg2, This phone will be able to play any game or movie the same as any other sg2 out there. Look I got a slightly overclocked mt4g and I have YET to find a app or a game including some Tegra only games that I can not play with my 1.2 ghz single core S2 cpu and 205 adreno gpu! And this phone puts my phone to shame.

      I just saw the video and while it is disappointing, it is still a beautiful phone. I did a little bit of research about benchmarks and most sites say that they aren’t a big deal. I still definitely want to check it out at the store and will most likely get it. Unless it sucks in my hands.

        “Unless it sucks in my hands.”

        That just doesn’t sound right.

  • The Beast Phone Perhaps is the HTC Amaze!  Which is TMo bound!

  • Which way is Up?

    Some of these comments are just crazy… I’m literally trying to figure out how these numbers will affect real day to day use. Yes, there is always a cool factor in bragging rights after comparing specs and all but seriously? The GS2 looks to be a great device, powerful, pocketable and pleasing to the eye and it had a larger capacity battery…

    This phone is still a winner, regardless and all things considered.

    • Oce

      Take a look at a review of the GSII w/exynos and witness how smooth the screen transitions are.   Then look at the review of the Tmo GSII, you’ll notice some lag when transitioning from screens and from apps menu to home screen.  I own a Vibrant and almost purchased a Sensation until I played with one.  The lag was just too painful.  The Qualcomm chips aren’t in the same category as the Samsung chip.  To the masses, this is a non issue, but to us phone tech aficionados, this is major.  The GSII just isn’t the GSII w/out Exynos.  Period.

      • VoiceOfReason

        Both of my Vibrants constantly crashed, freezer up, stalled, stuttered for whatever reason even after a full factory reset and no new apps installed.  

        All Android phones will do this eventually regardless or processor.  I’ve had almost every Android phone T-Mobile has put out and they’ve all choked on me after a few months of use.  Luckily I’m patient enough to factory reset them every once and a while.  

        Exynos or Qualcomm I’m getting the GS2 from T-Moible.  Dual core 1.5 GHz is better than anything I’ve had up to this point and I will reserve judgement until after I’ve messed around with one myself. 

    • n900mixalot

      I don’t see how a 2200 benchmark is that much worse than a 2380 benchmark either. And the whole “lag” situation … every device I’ve ever owned (well, not so much in WP7), iPhone included, has stuttered at one time or another, and the SGSII is no exception. RAM bottlenecks, or whatever–it happens.

      Some people will never be satisfied.

      Don’t worry about them though. You find what makes you happy.

  • Lastkid11

    Okay, this is for David. Does this prove the phone is “future-proof” when it comes to possibly crossing to the darkside (AT&T)??
    And for the AT&T guys (_ATL_Guy), I’m not starting ANY beef, but I have to report that at least in SoCal, my AT&T amigos are consistently having problems with dropped calls. I’ve been with the Big Magenta for about five years, and I could count on my one hand how many dropped calls I’ve had, and that usually is in areas where service is spotty for everyone else. It could be opposite in ATL,but here, it’s a no-go…

      If you find out, tell me. No one seems to know. 

      I even called TMobile direct through our corporate contact and asked, and the gentleman I spoke with found *nothing* about the full contract price. He knew the upgrade/new line price, which has been well publicized, but he had no information on the full price. They make less $$ on the non-subsidized phones, so they probably are reluctant to put that info out there too aggressively. 

      Best I can guess is probably in the $499-$529 range, but that is *purely* a guess – absolutely no double-secret info here.

    The SGS2 has the now-infamous Qualcomm CPU that others have mentioned is equivalent to that in the Sensation (hence why I call TMobile’s version the “SGS2-Lite”). Some have even said that a rooted Sensation with a custom ROM achieves comparable specs as the SGS2-Lite. Does that mean you shouldn’t go ahead and get the SGS2-Lite if you’re shopping for a new phone?

    Put another way, given that the Sensation is about $499 off-contract, and it appears the SGS2-Lite from T-Mobile will be about $529 off-contract, if you’re buying a new phone, why would you *not* get the SGS2-Lite? Is there some compelling reason why someone should get a Sensation and root it instead?

    Best I can tell, even with the crippled CPU, the SGS2-Lite is the hottest performer in TMobile’s lineup…

  • Im excited about the tmo version , mainly because it would be the only one I can get right now.. but one thing I wanted to point out was that the 1.5 ghz chipset is the older snapdragon and the 1.2 ghz in the other versions (ATT & Sprint) of the phone is the newer chipset with better GPU capabilities.. just to get the facts straight.

    The Exynos cpu/gpu doesn’t support 42Mbps “4g” which is why the ATT and Sprint versions have those specs swapped effectively.

    Why don’t we get the Exynos as well?

    • WW

      i don’t know the technical details but i’ve read that the exynos doesn’t support hsdpa 42 meg.

      • Raul

        There is one exynos that supports 42mbs
        But it is more expensive and the phone will go up more… Il pay more I dnt care but some people do.

        wtf was that?

      do you realize that ATT using the term LTE is actually stupid? LTE is the Long Term Evolution from CDMA technology to GSM technology. SO it actually only applies to verizon and sprint.. well and cricket and those companies but that doesnt really count

    Why the heck did T-Mobile have to make their’s bigger? So stupid.
    I’d rather have the form-factor of the AT&T version – it fits in the pocket better and is easier to hold.
    Both have the same resolution so there’s absolutely no advantage to going bigger; in fact, there’s a disadvantage as the pixel density is decreased slightly.
    Besides, if the form factor were the same for both versions, the manufacturing costs would be less from Samsung and so the device would be cheaper, from both carriers (economy of scale).

    I do like the upgraded processor on the T-Mo version, so I’ll stay in the T-Mobile network, but this one thing annoys me because 4.3″ is plenty big enough, bigger is undesirable.

    And for anyone wondering, the T-Mobile is 5mm longer and 4mm wider, but the same thickness, as the AT&T version (126x66x9mm). These specs were left out of the table above.
