Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II - user opinions and reviews

Samsung

Sort by:

" MSM8x60 is based on ARM's Cortex A8 design. This means its CPU core should perform similar to current/second generation Snapdragons (Nexus One, HTC Evo, Droid Incredible, Dell Streak, HTC G2 etc) at the same clock speed. Since it features two cores, and clocked at least 20% higher than those, it should perform up to 2.4x faster.

Any phones to utilize Cortex A9 based processors is expected to perform significantly better !!! "

Mali 400MP GPU is more powerfull than Adreno 220.
Some tests:
GLBenchmark 2.0 Egypt :
1) Qualcomm 1.5 GHz MSM8660 with Adreno 220 - 38 FPS
2) Apple iPad 2 with SGX 543 - 48 FPS
3) Samsung GT-i9100 Galaxy S2 - 50 FPS

So, stop writing here bullshits that HTC Sensation with Adreno 220 is more powerful than SGS2 with Mali 400MP.
Even, HTC Sensation will use MSM8260 at 1.2 GHz and this is Cortex A8 architecture and SGS2 Orion chipset is Cortex A9.

Atleast, SGS 2 will be carrier-subsidized. Here in Dubai, HTC is not taken in by carriers, and have to be bought cash, unlocked. OUCH XP

However, the MMS limit for voice mail is the SAME for all phones -- and this is not a defect of SGS 2, but a carrier-imposed limit. Regardless of what phone you buy and use, the MMS limit for sound files will still be the same -- 4 minutes, according to him. And ACTUALLY, nobody as in NO BODY, can stand listening to voice MMS longer than 3 minutes... including me.

Meego is supposed to be "Symbian - premium edition" but Nokia is unwilling to put more R&D money on it, esp now that they have Microsoft to do the software.

Fiiiinaly got my SG2, my iPants kicked and screamed all the way to Carphone Warehouse for a trade in. I can confirm this is the best phone ever, more buttery then iOS, fast, superb, easy to use, great graphics... The only bad thing is my shirt pocket won't close over it Lolz. And as for the plastic back, it's not that bad, it's firm when it's on the handset, and I finally got the joke about the Yotube video with the flexi plastic... It's not true! Don't bend it! Lmao xD

It doesn't always have the best everything, but it has very good everything. There is always something that is dedicated to that one thing and is good, but it's usually just for that like a camera or a computer. And for the past couple years when it came to the Omnia HD and the Galaxy line, Samsung has had the most epic featured, wide ranged phones. The GS2 is the most advanced phone out on the market.

Yes the cam is nice.... If all you want is the best cam then go ahead and stick with that by all means, but if you want a real smartphone with a wide scale range of epic features that still has a very good cam then come back here. HAHAHAHAHA!
