Impression from my Galaxy S which I bought some time ago, I believe this will be really dream phone in current market. If I am not owning Galaxy S this will be my phone.

> In reply to [deleted post]Its true that there are other decent reviews on the net but GSMarena do a full in depth review such camera and sound features whereas others only scrape the surface. I can only imagine GSMarena are having difficulty getting hold of the phone or that that they are working on the mother of all reviews! Despite owning the phone I'm looking forward to their opinion on this beast!

I currently own iphone, though this samsung looks great.
One thing is bothering me on all samsung phones. Design of their menus, icons etc. Look at those 4 main icons: Phone, Contacts, Messaging, Applications. They look like if some 5-year old kid draw them. Did they ever look at some iphone icons? Jeez...

Except for the big and bad design, this is a good phone.

> In reply to mark2jag @ 2011-05-11 19:08 from nxb% - click to readwith regrads to my previous comment about S2 not sending text messages internationally, im not stupid and have tried my sim in 4 or 5 different handsets, and they all work fine. the galaxy s2 will not send international text messages and comes up with an error message saying failed all the time. If i reset the phone completely then it will allow the sending of just one text message complete with delivery report but after the first message any further messages come back with a failed report meaning not delivered......
Incidentally UK text messaging seems unaffected. Samsung cant or wont help despite going to their head office, Phones 4u Camberley dont seem to give a damn, so unless I can get IT sorted then I'd really be ooking at getting it returned. Like i said before in the review I still rate the phone but it doesnt do what I NEED IT TO DO so therefore its NO USE TO ME!!!!!

just got this phone a couple of hours ago, first thing it is big but it feels really good in the hand. Screen is amazing and it is blazing fast. I picked up a gps signal within ten seconds and that was indoors. voice app works really well and the navigation by voice is amazing. Haven't had a chance to do much else but will post back when i've spent a day with it.

S2 looks just huge. Too wide and too long. Is it a phone or something between phone and tablet..?

> In reply to [deleted post]I am an iPhone 4 fan, but you are a troll. If you like iPhone 4, say good things about it in iPhone 4 section. if you dislike something in particular about SGS2, state it. But mindless trolling, neither Samsung fans, or true Apple fans appreciate. Reported you, on behalf of real Apple fans, who do not troll.

Guys, two questions:

1. what is the aspect ratio of this phone? for example iPhone has a ration of 3:2 and Nokia N8 has 16:9... But I don't know the exact aspect ratio of this one.

2. Does Android 2.3 support Unicode characters (Particularly Persian language characters)?

To all people who was desprated waiting for this phone. If you want to have this phone to maintain its quality and performance, please do not rush them (Samsung) too hard. Normally for for Asian people tend to ignore the quality once it come to quantity, they will rush to fulfill the demand of customer and will ignore the quality of their product.
