Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II - user opinions and reviews

Samsung

Sort by:

GSM Arena gave the strongest sides of this superb phone, and games comes after all other specs, I dont understand people who buy mobiles just for games or just for its appearance;design. Is so satisfying to read the reviews so i did and i will buy this phone for its large screen, 1080p HD record, GPS, Google search, Its document reading facilities,zoom etc, easy to type, in every condition screen is visible and more n more. Games? it could be nice but i rather choose ps3 or something else for games!. perfectness could become with a metal body..

are you saying you can't record more than 4 min with this?
also I am sorry I am not quite following this formats you talking about and the differences,

I will be surprise if you can't simply record (as many minutes as your storage allows you) and play it back in your computer, generally quick time player , plays everything!
cheers

Am i the only person here with sgs 2??

So when U post daily & ask multiple questions about taking photos with the SGSII in NO LIGHT conditions, strange. These 2 links R bedroom shots, SGSII, with lights on & OFF on Flickr with the userid of 'MAXHARDCORE!' Now questions on r/c earphones. Either this is U, as I suspect it is or your skewed sense of humour, whatever, these questions are NOT bona fide, I think U have more sinister motives than the trolls who R more interested in peddling their phones.

HELP ;(

Does anyone know the wired headphones with remote controls and mic functions working because the headphones coming with this phone does not have remote for Forward, Reverse and Volume Control.

I mostly listen music while riding bike and phone is in the pocket so with out remote i cant stop/play or roeward/reverse or control volume of my songs.

THANX

I use the Altec Lansing Backbeat 903 which allows you to control volume, play/pause, previous/next song, and voice dial.

They have great sound quality and are quite affordable

> In reply to [deleted post]Since gsmarena have sort of confirmed this i knew that samsung under estimated the pre-order amount of sgs 2.Based on climate and contrscts at 24 months nowadays in UK they did not expect the amount of pre-orders.I will find the link to release dates for you.

I'm receiving all day long emails and i don't know if this phone can handle that.
Clearly the writing experience is not that same as the blackberry.
I want to use this phone more as a business phone, not as a toy :).
thanks again.

Storage optionphone or memory card,

Default name ie you can name the file for easy finding,

Limit for mms -on/off.

When you record there is an orange graphic equaliser that bounces up and down.If you choose list option your songs come up and you can record a snippet of that song ,,unsure where its stored at this moment????

Right heres the big question,,its recorded in .3ga format,,never heard of it???????????????
