There's a lot of speculation about the SoC used in Samsung's Galaxy S II, thankfully through process of elimination and some snooping around we've been able to figure it out.
We know for sure it's not NVIDIA's Tegra 2 or Qualcomm. That leaves Samsung or TI. A quick look at GLBenchmark2's output gives us the GPU string: ARM Mali 400. TI's OMAP 4 uses a PowerVR SGX, so it's out of the running. This leaves one and only SoC: Samsung's own Exynos 4210 (formerly Orion).

I had hoped for more. This phone is a bit faster than mine, but not fast enough to justify an upgrade this year.
Well, in all honesty, I make very few calls with my phone. Judging by those around me, I’m fairly typical. Data is where it’s at these days.
So they could be called a Smart Camera.
I used the benchmarks supplied by Anandtech. The GSII did very well in those benchmarks, but anyone like me with a phone in the top 5 isn’t going to see enough of a difference to make the upgrade worthwhile.
