I've had mine for about 2 months now. It's so smooth in operation. It's even taken over from my laptop for many jobs. My only criticism is the battery life is pretty appalling. It needs charging every night(once my wife has finished playing games on it)

Apple sells more or less 15 millions of iPhone each three months since years. No, there is no success for this Galaxy S2.

What about the 10 millions Galaxy S2 already sold that were mentionned on this site? It's becoming 5 millions only.
This Galaxy S2 is VERY different when you hold it in your hands. Much too huge and too plastic one.

As for silly bragging comments over who sells the most....

Lets stand back and look at this.
We should be praising or passing constructive criticism on the headlined device topics; this might contribute to better phones.

Why do certain people just warship brands? Are they paying your mortgage and putting food on the table?

Companies exist to make money, nothing else. You are nothing but statistics for quarterly, performance, XL presentation.
Wake up and smell the coffee (whatever your brand is!).

Me and my mate bought sim-free handsets and are enjoying using our devices without asbestos gloves!

Is this just a coincidence? Hmmmmmmm......

I'm quite sure that iPhone 5 is going to sell more this year.

For galaxy s2 to beat iPhone 4 sells it has to gain sells every month and need to do that for long time, first galaxy didnt, iPhone did, best sells after year :)

Reason: big phone, galaxy s2 size phones are not for everyone, smaller phone has much bigger potential to get huge sells numbers.

Of coz it shud be sensitive, thats how capacitive touch screeen works..if its not, im sure u'll complain again that its not sensitive. To solve it, dont use touch screen phone with keypad or qwerty keyboard..haha. Lack of support from local dealer? bad bcoz that's not samsung fault but the fault of your local dealer. Solution is find other dealer, i'm sure there are alots of dealers in your place.
