Whether broswer version is same?
if same, why same interface different?
Furthermore, Samsung with 3G Signal but LG without any 3G signal.
The test environment seem prepared for Samsung. It is unfair comparsion.

I think that in this test galaxy S II is shown much better then in reality. In reality better choice is 2x if we consider price.

I wouldn't complain about the picture quality for pictures taken with any of those phones. Oversaturation is there for SGSII but that's not problematic, some noises are noticeable when zoomed in on Arc's that's not problematic. But in the end, I think they all take really good pictures unless you plan to look at your pictures all zoomed up everytime...

Hope GSMArena includes some night shots in the preview/review.

I want to see night shot from SGS2 and its led flash performance especially the led white balance, I still remember n86, that dual led flash color was really su*k...

anyway, I wish SGS2 noise control is done well when high ISO800. Usually, taking photo without using flash is nice than with flash.

one short note: LG make better phones than Samsung.

P.S. i agree with the previous commenter, that the comparison is not fair - top Samsung phone vs not the top LG phone.

It's really a shame but to me this was more of a Samsung promotion than anything else...

GSMArena you can do better than this...

What about battery life? Can these two last a day on 3G?

I know I can't prove it, but the gsmarena com shows the difference in pic quality.

Before anyone say image stabilizer, they are not perfect.

Idk why... But personnaly, I'm a sucker for oversaturated colors! ;P

On topic, Gs2 does feel like a more mature device, they should have put a little more time on the optimus imo..

I got my optimus 2x a day ago I've been playing with it. At the first the responsiveness and browsing were awful. As it has been discovered that the LG Stock firmware has huge bugs. Anyway so I've got the custom firmware now. I can assure you ITS FAST. Not sure if its faster than Galaxy S2 as its obviously on gingerbread and and o2x is on froyo but it's certainly comparable and much much better than the stock firmware.

For both of you, I made very clear comparison between Galaxy S II and SE Arc. Look at here:

Not in the same league. Arc have less detail and more noise. Once SE made phones with good camera (better than others). These times are history.
