1080p videos embedded in websites??? An iPhone can't play those.

About "lagging, crashing and battery problems", wtf are you trying to pull? Convince me of something that doesn't exist? Yeah, I own a SGSII, I know better than you about it and it doesn't lag, crash or run out of juice midday. Stop making stuff up.

That's Samsung KSA website;returnurl=

Now cite me some of these advertisements for SGSII as a "Gaming" phone. "Come on CITE me some, you should know them so well".

SGSII selling point is desktop-like web browsing experience and streaming/viewing videos.

I considered iPhone but it can't stream videos from the sites I visit daily, and of course the small screen.

Samsung's main page has 1% of "gaming" advertisement.

They talk about dual-core and how fast it is, they talk about it enables you to play high-end games.

No games have ever lagged or crashed, in fact all the games I could compare with my brother's iPhone has been better looking and smoother on my SGSII.

Dual-core indeed improve flash playback on SGGII from SGSI. SGSII plays 1080p flash videos without a hickup. Flash may be dying, but I know for sure I'll be using it for next 2 years which is my contract period. Main advantage: desktop-like web browsing experience. What is this battery drainage issue you are making up?

You can criticize SGSII with facts, don't make up nonsense to bash the phone you don't even know about. There are valid disadvantages of SGSII you can research, such as less variety of games, etc. What you've listed are far from facts. And you wonder why there are "Android attacks" in Apple related articles.

> In reply to joonius @ 2011-09-28 17:40 from qbY5 - click to readu can record and play 1080p videos on single core mobiles..i can do it with a simple app from the app store infact u can do 1080p videos on older single core android phones too u dont need dual core for that..

are u serious??have u ever seen any SGS2 ad??they always talk about "dual core" and "gaming"..every SGS2 ad u see shows its specially made for gaming but the problem is there arent any game that uses its dual core cpus..the biggest complain about SGS2 is that older games lag and crash on SGS2!is this what u paid for?u can do 1080p videos on last years Galaxy S..again the dual core didnt improve flash playback on SGS2 nor did it fix the battery drainage issue...flash is dead even adobe admitted defeat to flash so they released adobe edge and flash server specially designed for ios!!

wake up!u are being scammed by Samsung!
