It is time to have a phone with 3 days battery (SGS battery 6 hours, just like a laptop and the price further). "tennis rackets" so were the first mobile phone now back to the bag, how ridiculous! Freedom of movement with something in their pockets!

Cool, a screen of 4'3" inches in your hands. Very handy to use. NOT.
You never keep those huge smartphones for more than three months. They're too big. It is ridiculous.

Guys, dont fight over ios or android etc etc..each adheres to individual taste and likes..moroever when people say symbian vs ios vs android etc etc..we forget the fact that its iphone vs rest all symbian vs rest all android which itself shows the fact that apple is fighting the market with a single device which itself is incredible..i own all 4 devices r good in its own way..but rmmbr it all started with symbian and the flexibility they provide is chill, njoy ur devices and stop fighting

Engadget's review 9/10, Techradar 5 star (full), Electricpig 5 star (full)... Most of their review are praising and applauding for the SGS2. And most of the british who able to get their 1st hand on this device are impressed by the performance.So we don't mind apple lovers insult this phone, cuz the PROs are already recognize this beast.

Currently its THE BEST phone in the market. i dont like iphonez cuz they only work best with apple products, they r a pain otherwise.
Also Galaxy S II has a way beyond much better config, which works with all products, including apple...!
id go for Galaxy S II, anytime...!

He was referring to the fact that they only gave the figures for the Samsung home market against the iphone which isn't in its home market.

If you look at the preorders of the iphone 4 compared to the SGS 2 in America for example then you'll see a different picture I'm sure.

As another poster says - until we see the figures for a neutral country then we'll have a better idea.

everyone can manipulate figures to make one phone look better/more popular than another & GSMA seems to be getting more & more guilty of this of late.

for instance.

In my office the iphone is 3 times as popular as the blackberry & the samsung SGS isn't popular at all.. even the sony ericsson p800 is more popular (as I have one of them lying around in my drawer next to a Panasonic ETAC) ;-)
