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?

  • 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”.

    I thought that the phones will be shipped with NFC already built in.

      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.

    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
    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

      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.

    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!!!

    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

    Silly question to most, I realize, but can any confirm that this thing has an FM radio receiver? If so, it will allow me to retire my aging MP3 player which, incidentally, has an FM receiver, too…

    • A’alon Dawson

      It does! I had to really look on the Spec. Sheet to find it.  Its on the 3rd sheet under the Highlighted CPU info.

      • Frigadroid

        Anyone know if it has the headphone/rca tv out like the vibrant ? I love that feature except I never figured out how to turn off the vibrants display to save battery while viewing on the big screen.

        • Anonymous

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

  • BP

    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?

  • Meagan

    It took a year+ for TmobileUSA to start selling at 4.3″ Android. 
    Don’t wait until the media is drowning in iPhone5 news. 
    Come on’ TmobileUSA, get the Samsung GS2 into stores now!

      I too just check and all they have is a minute and a half video for a quick preview. What are you trying to start a riot?!

    Nice post! But you guys should give credit to GSMArena for this charts… All this screenshots are from their site ;) Just thought I’d let you know! Good day!

    • http://tmonews.com David

      These charts came from an internal source at T-Mobile. I don’t know if GSMArena received them or what, but these charts came from an internal source on our end.

    WOW an  article to inform me that these 2 phones are just about equal. 
    Thanks for this ground breaking news. 

    • http://tmonews.com David

      You’re welcome. Just try and remember you aren’t my entire audience. And welcome back Robert! Maybe you should consider that people have been asking me about this so I oblige them with this stuff so they can compare.

        Where’s the benchmarks? And looks like no WiFi calling for T-Mobile.

          More reason to get a Sensation or Amaze!

          Sure, but talk about double-gimping the SGS2 on T-Mobile. May be worth waiting for the Canadian version that keeps Exynos, and then root for CM7 to get WiFi calling back.

    FCC documents show the sgh t989 has UMTS 850/1700/1900. It shows test results on rf exposure for all those frequencies.

  • Josh Gordon

    Are there going to be any problems with Tmobile’s version since they are only claiming talk time of 4 hours, which is different than the other models? 

  • Anonymous

    I’ll sum up the difference here:

    T-Mobile version- always makes and receives phone calls

    AT&T version- occasionally makes and receives phone calls, but frequently drops them

    You’re welcome.

    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.

    • Benzworld

      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.
