I saw a video on YouTube where pre-release test unit of the Galaxy S II was having a serious problems with Auto-Rotation! Interesting if final release will be having same problem too?

Also, I think that it would be useful if Galaxy S II had an Notification LED.

Thanks for the review and I don't mean to upset any one with my comment but I really don't understand why this review have to be comparison of two mobile phones about which camera has better picture quality, or screen or screen size, which one is making better video recordings etc etc what about making phone calls, what about battery life, what about which one is easier to text etc etc this review is like comparing photo cameras not mobile phones.

Just checked with mine Galaxy S and black image.
The screen is black even in complete darkness. I see no difference when I switch the phone off - completely dark, so I guess 0 cd (or something)

How about comparing flagship vs flagship?


both launch around the same time and would be a much better comparison than an older dual core product that's available NOW rather than a few months away..

Can't wait for LG G2X, USA version of Optimus 2X. Tegra 2 has quite a few exclusive games coming out for it. Nvidia Geforce GPU inside Tegra 2 is made easy for games to port to it from PC or consoles. Tegra 2> Exynos anytime.

i agree title is misleading...the review was done to SGS2 as the main topic(any english speaking person should now this if they realy read the review or preview of SGS2)...title should be SGS2 compared with Optimus 2x...But this is the problem when there is already a preview that was done for the other devices...they are the point of comparison rather than being compare to each other

I meant to say that when SGSII is released, it should perform better than the one GSM Arena tested.

# of times these words were mentioned...
"Galaxy" : 68
"Optimus" : 28

Nothing wrong with writing another article about SGS2, but the title is rather misleading.

iphone4 screen might be a tad sharper but to a naked eye Samsung's AMOLED whipps iphone 4 LCD screen. Even if you compare first generation Samsung Wave its screen renders colours better than iphone 4 and everybody Ive shown it to have been blown away by AMOLEDs.

> In reply to Cro @ 2011-04-10 14:15 from prjP - click to readWell, in reality SGSII "should" be better since what they tested here is not the official model.
LG Optimus 2X is and excellent phone, I agree, the performance test indeed surpassed SGSII. Honestly, I like the pictures taken by LG O2X best and the phone design looks 10 times better than SGSII.

But nothing seems to convince me away from SGSII with its good looking screen, thickness, and TouchWiz4.0 =D I think Samsung did a good job on the TW4. So much information can be viewed right away soon as you unlock the device.
