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.

I have a Galaxy Ace and I definitely prefer the texture black surface than the white plain surface? Why? I'm afraid to drop it. Having that textured surface makes it easier to grip. (Just not a fan of capdases as well)

I think the SGS II's back cover was designed with this thought in mind. You do not want to drop such an esquisite piece of technology!!

Several things (all about the back cover)
# 1 ... There must be something wrong with the phone (there isnt really) so people pick the back cover to complain about as that is the phones weakest point.
# 2 ... For those comparing the phone to a Ferrari engine being placed in a KIA. Its not the whole casing its just the trunk on the back of the Ferrari!!!
And finally .....
# 3 ... If you really cant stand the back cover, and your face explodes in serious boils in an allergic reaction to the back cover of the phone. Then wait 2 months I'm sure there will be at least 10 3rd party companies making back covers to make ding bats like you happy.

People r so blinded on this forum, so let me enlighten u:
Galaxy S2 is a sorta a fail in my opinion actually or should i call it a midstop in a right direction:
1) First bad graphics choice. mali400 is much weaker than Power VR543 (so chances are this time iphone will have better graphics especially since it's software will be build specifically for it). If they go for mali t604 next year it will be roughly 20 times more powerfull (5 times mali400 core to core)
2) No 3D (not completely necessary at the moment since software needs to be optimized for it first, but certainly not future-proof).
3) Same cheap plastic iphone-like design (least make it something different for once, i like optimus 3D design for instance)
4) To take advantage of multicore and it's improved battery life u need Ice cream Sandwich (in ur face) which wouldn't be out now till Christmas and last time i checked Samsung doesn't have good update history and by THAT time u will hearing about quad-core phones being released shortly (just google- already a bunch of rumors about it). What gives the S2 speed at the moment is 1.2 GHz vs 1ghz from the last and EXT4 and other optimization of gingerbread with better drivers

Via twitter back a few month ago samsung was also considering about quad-core and 3d in their next phone, but i also found this topic about Eldar Murtazin which still exists next post.

As u see it also has some very interesting info about new screen technology and direction that Samsung is heading to, although i highly doubt about 6 month release table (it will most probably be carrier specific, aka galaxy S2 captivate with 4.5 inch screen, 2GHz dual-core, 4g etc for AT&T like Samsung infuse 4G, for Christmas), it certainly gives u an idea that this phone will be outdated within just few month. So whether u like it or not (or ignore my comment), just see for urself next year when u wasted money!
I certainly wouldn't spend 700 dollars on unlocked phone when a better one will be out in 6-10 month

NOW, many of u might say to me that this is either just rumors or that u can't catch up to technology, but this actually quite false.
First of all many of these rumors are originated from information leaked during prototype testing phases.
Second technology moves in steps.
For instance, while we will see quad-core phones next year (and no doubt about it, Sony NGP (not phone) will be first portable quad-core coming out by end of this year already), we will NOT see 8 core phones any time soon since cortex a9 only supports up to 4 cores and cortex a15 only up to 2 in a phone. Also how many laptops have 8 core CPU- most have stopped at 2 or 4.
we already witnessed how mega-pixel race has ended in 2009 since no phones since then went for 16mp or more. In fact Samsung galaxy s went back to 5 after developing 8mp camera phones (innov8 and i8910 HD) for 2 years.
Screens wouldn't go larger than 4.3 inch (otherwise wouldn't be portable), and 1080p video recording is as high as it can get, so in those things S2 maxes out already on what is possible. Also it's 1GB ram should hopefully be enough to run multiple apps this time although not as many as symbian. But it isn't perfect by any means.
Still if Samsung continue to push forward like in S2, their next phone will be maxed out in just about everything that the software will require.
After that it will mostly be smaller cpu architectural changes and while CPU may stay at 4, gpu can go up to 16 cores, however how much would u really need??
this is what i mean by software cause no developer will be willing to develop crysis 2 for phones and sell it for 10 bucks. power 543 is needed for Sony NGP more than anything else. (i still have Samsung i8910 and it can run all the games ur S2 can as long as it's out for Symbian^3)
