I got a Galaxy S2 for almost three months now and my previous phone was a Iphone 3gs....my 3gs never missed a beat in 2 years...I know lot of people are glorifying GS2 here and most of them don't even own one....let me tell you what I experienced in last three months with GS2....
1. Front camera for self photo just stopped working.
2. Gets really hot with more than 20 min of talk.
3. when playing music it shuts down and restarts after few songs.
4. when I receive a call while using navigation app it crashes.
5. Build quality is really cheap.
After having all these issues with in three months I don't think I'll ever buy a Samsung junk again. My GF is using a HTC Incredible S which is way better in terms of build quality and reliability.

Nokam, 22 Oct 2011•MicroSIM card support only
•No Flash support in the web browser
•No true multitasking for a... morewow u listed stuff that everyone already knows, u must be a genius or something, stop wasting time and trolling about how bad apple is, which is not, apple gives it customers really what they need, now siri, icloud, new features in ios5 for its users, damn good camera , and countless app in their app store.
u guys keep bashing that sgs2 is superfast, who cares? maybe u guys, nobody else cares if u claim android browsers load 2 seconds faster than ios browser, nobody cares if u can insert a microsd card slot in your android phone, nobody cares if you can replace your batteries, nobody cares!!!!!!
we come here to read reviews done by professionals, and read comments by actual users, so we can have a good idea of how good the phone is. so stop hating, and enjoy what you have.
Gsmarena for an awesome review.
isnt this icloud app backup stuff the same as titanium backup or any other app on the androids.. and contacts/calendars/emails etc are anyways always in sync on 'ALL YOUR DEVICES' with the same Google ID (yeah.. thats your gmail id)...
it may provide a more easy interface.. but that's it... nothing new.. and what do you want to do with all that 64 gb space if you cant copy files onto/off it !!
Apple is a thief. 4S copied from GS2.
+ Full HD video recording - how come no apple product has full HD recording before GS2 had?
+ 8 MP camera. There are various resolution of camera. Why use 8MP only? Because GS2 did it, and they simply had to blatantly copy-paste.
+ Apple also copied the antennae design - http://www.comon.dk/art/198604?page=2
+ Apple waited for Samsung to make the GS2, and took 5 months to copy it.
HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II will very easily kick out this basic phone :)
gsmarena said that ip4s is the best phone today..
cnet and pocketpc reviews on youtube says that s2 is still superior, they compre both phone frm os to screen to display from pic to camera videos full hd
theres also blog here on gsmarena prove that s2 is a superior for videos over all nxt is nikon cool pix which is digicam.
overall image s2 much superior than ip4s..
i doubt how gsmarena make their review..
always goodnews for ip4s
actuall browsing not just benchmark.. uploding downloading
voice google vlingo vs siri
Galaxy S2 and iPhone 4S are both beasts. If you care about quality apps/games, go with iPhone 4S. If you want big screen, go with Galaxy S2. Battery is little bit better on Galaxy S2 and audio quality is better on iphone 4S.
Not sure whether is right place to say it... Isn't the notification bar/tool too similiar with android platform?... I thought Apple strongly against copying (on going never ending patent wars)... I'm user of android platform and i thought this is sumting which can say android is better than apple... where Apple Apps is far superior then google market... what r ur thoughts??..
Wherever I go I see Android fanboys bashing some brand or the other... Now since GSMArena have put a review of the iPhone 4S and it was proved to them its a great phone and even better than S2 or some top Droids out there, my Droid mates are unable to digest the fact and call GSMArena biased and what not??? Get a life guys!!!
Obviously the reviewer of this iPhone 4s is again OVER rating this phone. Please copy the link and watch it:
This will show what you guys are missing out.
One thing that's terrible about the iPhone 4s, it is very very vulnerable to heights. Even if you drop it waist high (or even knee high), there will be cracks on the phone because it uses glass in the hardware. Gs2!on the other hand, it uses thebscratch resistant gorilla glass so it will start to have small cracks when you drop it shoulder high. Nokia n9, lg optimus 2x and htc sensation also have gorilla glass. If you are a clumsy person, dont buy the iphone 4s because it will break not sonlong after you buy it. No offense to apple fanboys but iphone 4s is like made in china. Breaks easily.
