I am using the GS2 for last 3months & i think its the best smartphone i have ever seen. I m a crazy gadget geek & i always dreamt of having a smartphone & i have also used somd other smartphones, but i think this is the one i was looking for. We all know that now Samsung is the leading brand in phone & i think its the best production of samsung. In features i think nothing can comes to its lebel even the iphone. As a proud owner i will say that its really feel great holding this one in hand & flaunt.

Apple might still score high in customer satisfaction, but that actually says nothing about the amount of returned units.

For those who think iphone4 is the best..let me tell u something..50% of the iphone4 is made by samsung..and the rest 50% by other companies..but not apple..

And im using SGS2 for 3weeks now and i think this is much better than iphone4..i still have my old iphone4..i dont even feel like looking at it anymore..

1) the screen is SGS2 is the best screen iv ever seen..even ipad2 cant beat it..
2) the processor is the fastest..
3) and its made up of hard doesnt feel plastici at all..and because of that its very light..

For all those iphone users..use this phone for a week and you will come to what iam toking about..and i bet you wont go back to the useless iphone4..

P.S congratz to samsung for the 5million mark..

This is a good phone for those that want to be in second place. Everyone knows the iphone is the device that every phone wants to be like. You never see this phone in the movies or tv shows do you?? The iphone is the phone they always use. This is just like any other android trash.

I love my iPhone 4 except I still have the antenna problem and it drops many calls.

I saw this video and the GS2 beats my phone in web rendering speed.

It even beat the iPad 2! How can a mobile beat a tablet? It must be really fast! When my contract is over, I want to try this phone.

I know no phone is perfect, but I want something faster than my iPhone 4. Also, my gf's games keep crashing on her iPhone 4. We looked at game comments on iTunes and lots of people got games crashing, maybe iPhone is too slow for today's games?

If GS2 is a good experience for me, then she will switch too.

Hats off to Samsung, Android phones are gaining popularity. Still Samsung has its competition with HTC, Motorola and others making great devices.

Android device security is important I recommend 2x mobiledevicemanagerDownload at
or from the Android Market

To all my friends out there let me tell u couple of things that will clear your perceptions about this phone.i have been using this for more than a month now.

1) As fart as heating is concerned it is not an issue reason is that all phone get heated while using y do some of us feels that galaxy s2 get over heated is because the phone is ultra slim. The back cover is mere plastic and very very slim which does not absorb heat and let it pass through.
2) As far as the tint is concerned there is no such tint on the screen atleast on the unit I have. The phone screen is perfect as a matter of fact there is no better 4.3 inch screen present in the market. The movie and picture experienxe is amazing.
3) I dnt no y someone said the phone has bad wifi signal strength I have been a heavy smartphone user and by far this phone has the best wifi signal strength.

Now I m not a androix fan boy or samsung fan boy m just telling u the true experiences that I have noticed about this phone. Its worth every penny atleast mine. I agree that touchwiz 4 needs improvement but u have other ui's available plus samsung has announced to further enhance the touchwiz capabilities between I like to use touchwiz 4 because of few options that are not still available in other user interfaces.

I heard Cyanogen Mod for the SGS2 is already out so that means that MIUI wouldn't be far away. I want to get one for myself but it's being carried exclusively by Bell. I will have to unlock it with Chainfire's unlock as I'm on a different network. My carrier's answer to the SGS2 are the O3D and the Evo 3D. They're good but not SGS2 good.

You can't have profits that high if you are not selling tons of iPhones. Like it or not, the average Joe likes the iPhone and it's selling like hotcakes.

Next time ipad appears part of their notebook's sales, iphones get presented as xxx millions...And what happens with the iphone, that are broken and out of service? What happens with the ones, sold on ebay and re-activated under different itunes account?
Wouldn't trust a word on such statistics nowadays, no matter which company is presenting it. Besides, who cares if there are 100 million people, that need simply a feature phone with demo versions of games ;)

Apple might have passed 100 million sold iPhones in total. But that would be a irrelevant figure, really. As no other manufactor has counted so many different devices as the same model.
