AT&T Galaxy S II Receiving Update To 4.0.4

The Galaxy S III may be Samsung’s flagship, but its predecessor, the Galaxy S II, is still alive and kicking.

And unlike most phones at that price point, it packs a punch. With its weakest point being the display, it still manages to offer a 5″ qHD 960×640 screen at the same 3:2 ratio as older iDevices.
