This is a great review but I have only one question. In the review I saw that the recording format for 1080p was mp4 but when I record movies it's always in the 3gp format. Is there a setting to change this?
that was unbiased review unlike some other websites.gsmarena is a website to trust
i have been an iphone person..... but after watching the reviews of Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II on youtube, damn...... sgs is way too awesome !!
usb on the go is a brilliant feature. i love it, aint waiting for iphone 5, getting sgs 2 ver soon...
pretty expensive in msia, but i guess its worth it!!!
Anonymous, 14 May 2011Agreed that this phone has raw power to handle heavy apps and videos but what abt gaming??? ... morealready the phone is costly and if they had worked harder for the body too, i guess the price would rise to such a level that buying this phone would become a luxury(to some it already is a luxury, dont u think?)..

qwerty man, 14 May 2011we need and want a similar model, which also has a side-sliding hardware qwerty keyboard.I agree with you, qwerty-man.
i am currently using a full touchscreen Samsung i9003 Galaxy.
the screen is responsive and comfortable, but still, something' missing.
i prefer the real physical keyboard with real feedback.
i hope Samsung will release Galaxy S2 Pro with real QWERTY keyboard.
This is an amazing phone 360, but someone explain to me why on earth these phone makers think its a good idea to drop a dedicated camera button? We need that to stop, thin is awesome but taking a picture without a hardware key feels really awkward.
very comprehensive review, thanks GSM Arena!
your reviews help me decide which phone should I buy next.
can't wait for the next SGSII review with the battery consumption test.

60 fps on a dual core sucksss... why don't they do it any better? And why don't samsung make their touchwiz any better ??? Touchwiz as usual looks very much cluttered like a 2yr old child's drawing...
And last and not the least design and body material... why would someone want a phone so much pricey with a copied design(even after copying iPhone this phone looks yuck...) and body made of such a cheap material ???
