Galaxy S II breaks Samsung's records, sells 3 million in 55 days - read the full textUnless you were hanging out with the sherpas in the Himalayas you probably must have heard a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S II. To say it was well-received would be an understatement as almost everyone we knew had already got one or was planning on getting one. But now we have the official figures...

And people who loves this Galaxy S2 will buy and adore the iPhone 5.
It's always the same story. Quite funny.

Come on, people. 10 millions, it's nothing. Honestly, it is not a question of war between Samsung and Apple here. This Galaxy S2 is simply a cheap phone with a high price. And the Galaxy S3 will already be sold very soon. Open your eyes.

1. By having more apps, you are more likely to find an App that suits your needs. General apps are ok, but when you need specific apps, you will be more likely to find it in the bigger store.

2. "The cream always rises to the top". The App Store that has more apps means that there is also more competition. There may be several apps that do the same thing, hence developers are compelled to make theirs the best, so the customer ends up with better quality apps.

When Android apps hit 200,000 it made headlines. When WP7 Store hit 5000 apps it also made headlines. Regardless of the number, this is an aspect considered important by all the OSs.

Anyway, just thought to comment on that issue, irrespective of phone choice.

I have iphone and sgs2, honestly i cant think of going back to my iphone. i do jailbreak the iphone... so what ? Jailbreaking not going to change your bluetooth so that u can send anything to your friend device. Sending via email also is not your option on iphone. whoever have iphone outthere might know how creepy is when u cant send more than 2 pic in email ? ,unless u have thord party program..... ( very slow ) Too many restricted on iphone. How good is the phone when u cant even share your data. Iphone is more likely gaming phone. but yah with wifi file explorer, kies wifi, and universal usb in this phone makes my life so much easier than when i used iphone.

> In reply to Anon @ 2011-07-05 03:18 from 2CR$ - click to readI just recently updated my firmware from KE2 to KE7. Lasting 2 days of moderate to heavy usage. Before the update, it was 12 hours under moderate usage... I was about to succumb to Nokia/Apple fanboys hate comments, but I'm actually quite surprised how long it lasts now. I'm not worried about it dying on me even if I forget to charge it overnight one day.

Battery is not a weak point of SGSII. In fact, it's quite excellent.

How's the battery life going on your GS2?? 3hrs of screen time??? Wow, I'd get about half a days use from it.
