Update 2:

Dont know about what GSMArena got as bundled headphones(ROKR it is written), but the scandinavian package that I bought, has the worst headphones thrown in.... it is absolutely terrible...had to buy a new pair for 60 Euros.. :-(
Why dont they make the package consistent?

will be nice to see what the next gen iphone will do as well.

But even after that, it is quite fast and the looks are killing, i think even more than the fabled iPhone.....

Update 1:

1. The camera is really good at macro shots.. i got the lock-on at 1.5 cms, which I think is quite outstanding.. I think GSMArena must update on the macro shot capabilities of the unit here..

2. The processor, though running at 1.2Ghz,, barely touches 1 Ghz, and even so, normally only for a very small time.. normally is works at 300 Mhz for around 90% of the times.

3. The power consumption in standby mode is only 2 mA, though, it gets quite high sometimes..

4. There is a problem with the Wifi reception. The connection does hang sometimes and you need to switch-off/switch-on the wifi, to make it work again.

5. Signal reception is good, but not that of Nokia's.... though the voice clarity is pretty good.

Others will be updated accordingly later...

as a N8 owner though, it does feel fragile sometimes, but thinking about the Kevlar i dont think it would be..
it is surely a beauty to behold... and firefox doesn't really work. Maybe the best mobile browser is the Opera today....though the default browser is pretty damn good...

Sounds like a good build right?

Well it's not, I've got my hands on this phone and it still feels flimsy. Firefox crashes, as we all know mozilla is pretty crappy on any mobile devices.

It's a nice step up, but the mobile companies need to stop pushing usless crap into the phone.

Good job on Motorola though!

I have SGS2 and sure there is only minute changes that moto boasts are the screen and width of the phone. The unable to takeout the battery unimpressed me. To whom ever design and approve the product was not really analyzing thoroughly, because most people who got this or getting this device would by a case protector, which would make that phone thicker by the way, therefore there is no point of creating a sealed behind. Very disappointing behind. lol ;p

what is the point of full HD video in phone? screen is 960x540, it just cant display 1920x1080 pixels, there will be no difference between 960x540 and 1920x1080 videos on this screen... i have sgs2 for 4 month and i only played 1080p video twice, just to check if it does play it in browser... that was all...

I just see another audio quality review on another website. I think stereo crosstalk when use headphone should much more than 1x as you test. Plz retest in on another unit.

> In reply to black2black @ 2011-11-30 02:55 from th65 - click to readSamsung SGS2 is an okay phone. I had it for a very short while. The low res and annoying battery made me leave it for Atrix. SGS2 looks good on benchmarks due to it's low res screen (same as LG optimus 2x), but basically, even the Atrix is a better choice. Same goes for this one.

I'm getting this asap.

And people who like iPhone. . . Get over the hype. It's a weak phone at a high price with a easy-to-break design. It looks cheap shit and feels just the same.

Un-replaceable battery is definitely a dealbreaker. I had to carry around an external backup battery chager for iphone4. Not a pleasant experience i tell you.
