I don't understand why Nokia N8 was pushed in the photo comparison. BTW on the picture with the cars on the second page, the N8 is blurriest(see "stylo" text).
i choose xperia S! that is because I am young who wants both style and functionality, not like older people :)
Everybody knows that sony is a more riliable camera maker and so I choose the xperia over s2.also sony phones have the best design and are prestigious. However despite the fact I dont like samsung phones I should confess that samsung is an admirable company.
xs better from s2 becose sony very better from samsung samsung make rubish phone and copy from other sony like no other
RamyRamz69, 11 Mar 2012Lol....i dont need to defend anything, the review stated the XS was better, most of the people... moreIn what part does this review says that xs is better than gs2? Now youre saying that gsmarena is biased with xs?lol!
And i take ur responses just for fun simply because this 17 year old ur talking to is making more sense than you.haha!
wow.. sony vs samsung.. both have diff personalitity .. but i vote for sony... :)
everyone get so excited about quadcore nowdays.. huhuhuhu... but i personally waithing who will come out with 2gb RAM ddr3 or higher..
Lol guys please. Both are good phones. Just enjoy your phones and stop comparing. Compare so much for what?

salsa, 10 Mar 2012lol i really enjoy reading your arguments! 1st, why are you clinging on so much about iphone w... moreLol. I know your pain and laughter. This ramzy is a shameless and hopeless poster. Makes false points, lies, and relies mostly on bashing and name calling rather actually trying to prove anything. I'm with you. Sure this is a little better, but not by much and its almost a year newer. You could sit there and say you like both companies and devices, but have a differing favorite or opinion from ramzy and they will just take what you say good about Sony and use it against you while bashing you and Samsung or whatever other company and still call you names. Lol. He is a huge troll here.
RamyRamz69, 11 Mar 2012Lol....i dont need to defend anything, the review stated the XS was better, most of the people... moreLmao! No it does not say that. First of all it says make your own choice. Second its not simply better it is barely better. Concisering also the fact that there is almost a year between the two and its barely better shows how well the GS2 really is. Now I'm not saying that it isn't better in some ways because I would be ignorant...or more so like you. Haha. Its got a couple nicer features. You might AZ well just wait for the GS3 at this point. And I haven't been able to take you seriously since the first time I saw your posts. So Randy, Nashua, ignorant, full of lies, blind, and so hatefull and bashing. And it is out of this world hilarious that you say other people act like children here. Lmao!!!!

Every time you post I take you less seriously, you're obviously under 18.
matta, 11 Mar 2012i wonder if someone can publish the video comparison between these phone xs vs s2,minute 3:06,... morealmost all those youtube videos r done with review units. U hv 2 wait til thy do a comparison with a retail unit
Thank you for the comparison.
It is good to see Sony producing great mobiles even if it has taken them a while to crank up their product generation.
Everyone is ranting about hardware issues as opposed to user functionality and experience.
Often more powerful hardware will disguise shortfalls in operating system efficiency.
It will take a while for Android to catch with ois, if indeed it does, but it has certainly opened up a massive market.
For me I prefer a key board to farting around with widgets etc, but have an open mind as to whether Android will actually introduce anything of a difference, and is new and relevant to the business user. For now, like ois it is boring.
I am not interested in apps as most are rubbish and a waste of time.
For Sony, well done, have always enjoyed Sony products.
I hope you can produce something different for the future and not follow the Samsung business model.
TMach, 11 Mar 2012This is about comparing apples with apples as opposed to pears. It is not about the time span ... moreActually its funny how u miss whole point about optimization here.
"That means this is a valid comparison so dual core v dual core and quad V quad. I suppose when the GS3 comes out the benchmark will be the latest quads from HTC, Apple and presumably Sony Xperia Mint!"
I show u an example of optimized software vs crap software and how single core owns dual core :
Rightware browser mark also very very good for iphone 4 , competing in middle in dual core devices.
Last 2 marks are offscreen so they dont count.
optimized software vs crap = optimization always wins with low hardware and its been one year since samsung unveiled galaxy s2 and still no optimized software aka ICS.
And u look at clock speed :
800 Mhz vs 1200 Mhz and 1400 Mhz devices , and also
imagine how much iPhone 4S will score if it has 1400 Mhz or atleast 1200 Mhz? .
Single core may not own dual core in all areas but optimized software for right hardware can give maximum efficiency , Android OEMs are struggling to make high end devices with high Specs which performs same as 800 Mhz device in many areas.
My Opinion is Nexus series and iPhones are the only Line up with perfect integration for software and hardware
I strictly hate android phones (all) except Nexus series , because all other phones have poor software support and no optimized software.
And i like iPhones too for their simplicity and user-friendly software which is perfectly optimized every year like Nexus.

Just shows how good the performance of the SG2 was and still is. A year old piece of tech holding its own against a brand new piece. Sweet.
Guys, dont forget that Galaxy S II was released 11 months ago and it was the best phone ever. And Samsung's new flagship will be S III on 2012 May. Galaxy S II will have 1.8 dual core proccessor, 12 MP cam, 2 (1.5) GB RAM. So, Samsung is still the top notch manufacturer. SE cant beat Samsung.
