I am one of the first and very proud (:-)) owners of the Galaxy S 2 and call tell you that it will not matter much to me whether the CPu runs at 1.2 or 1.4, wha matters are the following things: Super AMOLED display, which I already have in the current version of SGS2 and battery life. So far, from my own experience and from what I see on the net, Gal2 beats all smart phones concerning battery life but STILL IS NOT satisafactory. Day-day and a half is NOT satisfactory to a geek like me.
I need to buy a phone 1.4ghz dosen't make a huge difference to me but things that matter's is SUPER AMOLED HD display.I think that can make me wait for this phones plz conform the specification of this phone as soon as possible.
LOL @ all those ppl argueing with their old trashy n900.
I'm currently using all those 3 phones, and really, n900 has nothing to be compared to them, guys TRY BEFORE COMMENTING.
And about those stupid comments "Android needs 1ghz to run smoothly".
So smart that you all need to be reminded, 1st reason why these processors were introduced, is for mobile 720P playback / recording / editing, and other functions of course, without even mentionning, evolution.
So grow up or get a life, or both.
Already runing mine at 1.6 Ghz. Doesnt really care as Samsung will only change a single line in Software not Hardware.
Adrian 89, 29 Jun 2011if we already had a Samsung Galaxy S 2 with 1.2 GHz can we upgrade to 1.4 GHz ? dude..hardware how to upgrade man..u thought software ?..haha..
Adrian 89, 29 Jun 2011if we already had a Samsung Galaxy S 2 with 1.2 GHz can we upgrade to 1.4 GHz ? well duh its just a software mod
It's SuperHot@1200Mhz.. it will be MeltingHot@1400Mhz!
P.s. the high temperature is not well tollerated by amoled screens.
Dorian, 28 Jun 2011oh my god!!!! impressive !!!! my next phone definetly!You do realize that this isn't even really overclocking; the Exynos supports up to 1.5ghz anyway; Samsung just underclocks them
Adrian 89, 28 Jun 2011if we already had a Samsung Galaxy S 2 with 1.2 GHz can we upgrade to 1.4 GHz ?
Forget 1.4 GHz. Try 1.6 GHz
if we already had a Samsung Galaxy S 2 with 1.2 GHz can we upgrade to 1.4 GHz ?
i guess launching of iphone 5 at september will make sammy to produce 8 cores, 2gig ram, 128 gb nand flash and 16mp with 10x optical zoom cam smartphone lol :P whatever you had quad or octa cores, you can not beat apple with that. sammy has to use quality material (not plastic) like htc and others. i really liked touchwiz 4.0 but i hate that plastic backcover at galaxy s 2.
Have they at least given a better GPS reciever? Also, how does the CPU speed enchancement affect battery usage?
