the Mick, 17 Jan 2012Brilliant phone made me give up the Iphone4, But will it handle updates like Android 4.0?Definitely will take 4.0 ...the standard s2(i9100) is scheduled to update to ICS and this version is much faster(1.5 vs 1.2)
RSK, 03 Feb 2012I have this phone....terrible battery out of the box...dies so fast...I have no idea how to fi... moreOk go to settings,location......make sure you uncheck gps or google location services,you only need this for map apps
2.shut off your data when your not using it.go to settings,wireless networks,scroll all the way to the bottom to mobile networks,uncheck data packet...
3.goto settings,accounts and sync...this is the main reason also your battery dies.you only need this when your in a google app...market YouTube...etc keep these things off as needed and your battery will perform better.....
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2012Change network setting to GSM mode. Do not set 3g or Dual mode. Why the hell to buy 3G phone and do not use 3G ? !!!!!

I prefer the design of the T989 as opposed to the generic EU version. I live in the UK and if this handset worked here I would definitely buy it.

I have this and the iPhone 4s, speed is about the same but iPhone screen looks better, but this phone has many more uses than the iPhone. One area this phone is a complete beast in is the speed the iPhone cannot compare to the Samsung's download speed. Even on the same wifi s2 is a pinch faster hah wth. Front cam is a joke though it's horrible.
Why the aspect ratio of the display is 15:9 but not 16:9 (standard) in all high end samsung phones?
I got this phone few days back from Telus in Canada. Its amazing i'm in luv with it, I even sleep with it. adreno-220 Gpu is what makes it wonderfull in specs.

However, if you want a simplistic, slower, general smartphone, get the iPhone....as was once said, "The iPhone is a smartphone for people who don't know how to use smartphones".
