Even if human eyes can't distinguish mo... moreI think 'klear' is just trying to say that all standard screens including the (one in galaxy SII) have a refresh rate of 60fps. So even if the GPU outputs a higher resolution than that, there will be no practical advantage because the screen has 60fps cap. Moreover, that would also lead to wastage of battery life.
Wow, how come GSMArena forgot to mention that microSD card is not hot-swappable in the main disadvantages......?????

It's been almost a year and there's still no MeeGo device. Oh, well... I guess Nokia had a failure to launch problem.

anyway, even if u use the wifi hotspot for devices of ur own (ipod, laptop, tablet) and not for commercial purposes, no one has any right to question you
anti-anonymous, 15 May 2011Stop being delusional. Damn!I am not delusional! Nokia hyped MeeGo as the Android killer and there's a good reason why. MeeGo is the operating system of choice for BMW, GM, Hyundai and many others. It will be everywhere so Android better watch out! The Next BIG thing is almost upon us and everyone is waiting for the MeeGo N9.
im from the phil..i have an unlimited internet data plan, now i have use the android hotspot wifi..is these included in my unlimited data/ ? or will i incur additional fees for these usage? how bout tethering.. im using globe telecom net service.. anyone hav ideas..
I just learned how to root my samsung galaxy i9000 and now I am on a custom Darky's ROM and I love it! With lagfix and all that, benchmark doubled.
Now comes sgs II - holy cow, I'd love to have this but when?! Kinda expensive to change high end phones every few months... But hey, I'm getting this sh!t!

No worries fellow Nokia lovers... the upcoming MeeGo N9 will make the SGS 2 the second best phone in the market.

Anyone know anything about screen burn-ins? This is the thing that will worry me when i buy this.

It will certanly cause problems when the phone is on your pocket.
TC, 14 May 2011Have you even tried/used Galaxy S2?
Nokia N8 have only 360x640 so that screen can not be comp... more!!!
Did you really say that!? Xperia arc is the sexiest android smartphone out there at the moment. All the reviewers out there crowned it the sexiest!
Anyway, well done samsung. About this phone being the best, i disagree. It is amazing all rounder phone, but for example nokia n8 = king of snaps.
I am now considering this over htc sensation and the for ever waiting xperia duo. Hope it won't be as laggy as sgs after 3 months use.
Firstly, I am no fanboy but review after review seem to be heaping praise on the S2....
I for one am still so tempted to purchase this phone even after my dreadful i8910 experience....
This phone will do for the next 18 to 24 months of my new contract when I upgrade.
I for one am going to reserve judgement for awhile longer....read the forums and more unbiased user experience..
The only handset I can see coming close to this is the Sensation....but again reviews and user opinon will tell the whole story....
TO those who say the review is biased, you really are living on a cloud.....practically every tech site and mobile phone review that has managed to review the handset hae heaped praise on it....are they really all in Samsungs pocket and taking bungs????....I think not.
Like I said, I'm no Samsung fanboy...like I said with the i8910 their support was atrocious beyond belief.
But there is no denying that by simply looking at the spec and technology packed in this phone, it is beyond anything currently in the market and from the sounds of the feedback really does offer a leap over other handsets.....Next year will be the true test for the likes of S2,Atrix and x2...Sony have yet to show their and the second generation dual core phones will be available....Remember, nothing is future proof...but there is proof that the future is here....
Choose wisely and don't get drawn in by the marketing, arguments about which is the better manufacturer blah, blah, blah....and don;t be foolish enough to show brand loyalty....not until a manufacturer releases a phone with no issue or bugs and only updates to further improve an already great handset.....
All in all a god review and one I did not think was biased....gsmarena certainly did not gush like some of the tech sites out there.....
Now hurry up and review the HTC Sensation so that I decide which phone to get.....:)
Happy Eurovision Everyone :)
