The photo taken with Arc tends to show a bit more grainy edge as compared to S2. As for color, S2 has a bit of issues with saturation which Arc seems to not have. These are just my 2 cents worth of comments.

I hope to see updated review with final hardware and software, I just can't believe games would stutter on Galaxy S II when they don't on Optimus 2X.

great, and the most important criteria for a phone is not compared: telephony quality - like how well am I understood when talking and vice versa.

2 1/2 years ago I bought my LG KC910 renoir just to find out that telephony quality sux and I am hardly understood...

Chill down guys. GSMArena has underwritten a disclaimer that the product it has now is with a pre-released Gingerbread and a unchanged CPU. The comparisons might not be as what the final product may have. Let us just take it with a pinch of salt. It's just a preview, NOT a review.

I don't understand why gsmarena always say that contrast ratio for amoled is infinite. Of course the dark pixel don't emit light. But according to physics, if the adjacent pixels light up, that particular pixel is supposed to absorb/reflect some of those emitted light.

The SGS II at least has a hardware accelerated browser that is a lot smoother than the one on the LG. Heck I'd even go as far as saying that the browser on my SGS is smoother(running 2.3.3). The camera, audio and display quality are all sub par on the LG. When you take all of this into consideration, while keeping in mind that the SGS II is both lighter and thinner and comes with better codec support, you'll come to see why GSMArena are praising the SGSII before the 2X. Gaming is about the only thing that is better on the Optimus(for now at least).

So much impressive hardware but what's the point? You can have the best processors, best screens, best everything but at the end of the day, your software is just incapable of utilizing it.

Its like driving a McLaren in downtown Bangkok! Pity.

So dont you think this small difference is not very important. Also keep that in mind that CBD doesnt have those crispiness and wide viewing angles of samoled+. CBD only has better color reproduction.

It can be a bad question, but for the S II can people play with TEGRA games? I heard, that the Dual-Core phones, can play them.

If the first sgs II,with the dual core 1ghz processor didn' t have performance issues,then why samsung decided to release a delayed version with a 1,2 ghz processor? i think dual core 1 ghz processor is enough but sgs 2 has performance issues. and the comparison with lg isn't fair. it makes lg look like a mediocre phone
