In order to show off this remarkable hardware, optimization is necessary. Galaxy S II is much loved by customers worldwide for its optimized user environment.
Software That Graces the Hardware
Since Galaxy S II was the first smartphone ever to be loaded with dual core, appropriate performance adjustment were necessary. Our software development team worked tirelessly to optimize a range of software in order to run smoothly with Galaxy S II’s hardware specifications. As the result, customers are able to feel the beauty of a true smartphone.
“The biggest change is its speed. Activation speed of all things from booting speed to media scanning, running applications, multi-tasking and others have gotten much faster. Application of dual core cannot be viewed from the aspect of performance improvement only. Attention must be paid to the efficient electricity consumption, as well as other parts. Instead of making customers feel that the phone is fast simply because “it’s equipped with dual core”, we need to make customers feel that every processor is faster and more accurate because the phone is optimized for dual core.”

A situation room for developers was set up, and whenever there were issues, communication between departments was key.Stable quality and accelerated performance had to be realized through optimization, with all parts upgraded or modified from existing devices. For this process, interdepartmental cooperation was crucial. This behind-the-scenes team worked hard to create a seamless user experience with the Galaxy S II.
