> In reply to [deleted post]Well you are right on this one

I already sold my SG2 since the bloody thing slows down, freezes even on calls, camera issues, gps problems...the list is endless I will upload an video on YouTube showing the "gremlins" inside and is the 3rd (since the others was "lemons" exchanged/returned to the carrier by me) even at the store they toldme....Man is the 8th that people return in 1 week :S .

Now I have an HTC Trophy and WP7 is a REAL PLEASURE to use not a single slowdown, glitch, restart NOTHING!!!!

I don't totally blame Samsung I blame Android BUT Samsung phones has hardware issues as well......

"... the Samsung Galaxy S ... took seven months to reach 10 million sales, two months longer than the S II."

You might want to correct that

It's a remarkable achievement by Samsung but i'm not impressed with their overall quality control, Most of Samsung's galaxy s2 devices have the following issues:
-Screen blotches (clearly visible under dim light)
-Overheating after a short time of use the temperature jumps to 44C and the device becomes too hot to use.
-Music player stutters a lot and frequently crashes.
-Voice command app activates randomly when you press the home button.
-So many variants in the market with various specs (some seem like a downgrade from the original GT9100 and i doubt if those variants will ever get the taste of ICS) its like daylight robbery to sell a GT9100G under the name of Galaxy S2.
I've used five different galaxy s2 and after switching from one S2 to another and finding out that each device had its own issues i had to get used of those problems and they are very concerning i doubt if i'll ever buy another samsung device even thought they have some of the best designs and excellent specs.

I'm not surprised, it is an amazing phone after all, considered by many to be the best there is, and I expect the S3 will be a true iPhone killer too

2.when you want to buy iphone you have 2 choice.4&4s but when you want to buy galaxy phone you have plus.r.etc so this is obvious that iphone sales will be higher than s2 but samsung sell more high end phones than apple overall!
