> In reply to RONALD @ 2011-05-14 21:05 from vGx@ - click to readI say this to most people for a long time now.Sit down and write down what you use youir smartfone for.Is it worth waiting ages for sgs 2 just for a music fone.I love the 1080p and cannot wait to get mhl cable.I love the audio quality and concert hall setting,,i love the display and battery stamina.Also today have been doing word ,excel documents and trying 13MB PDFS using polaris software built in,,the calculator goes to scientific mode in landcscape ..You can alter screen temperature just it does the lot and use nearly everything.

I dont have a car but use gps for other features but not a neccessity.To be honest if i could get a good twitter client and a few other things the wave or wave 2 would do but they are only 100GBP less than what i paid for this beast.

See if you could buy just a music fone if thats your main venture.

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.

It makes sense that the phone should be in UAE by end of this month because it's launched in other countries last month! Samsung should think and release this beast quickly to gain the market, before people jump on iPhone5 which will get announced in June as all previous iPhones.

hi to all, if anybody kind enough to give me some feedback on this phone will be much apreciated. how fast is the gps. i had the htc hd2 and it would lock in a few seconds even from cold start. the nokia n8 i have now takes 2-3 minutes. also can you install igo software? also is it stable on the bluetooth. i have 3 cars 2 with factory fitted b/ths and 1 with parrot and the n8 works diferently on all of them with many issues. i dont really care for games and apps. 3 things are importand for me.
1. reception with sound quality
1. bluetooth
3. gps
thank you in advance

Hey,

I have problems deciding between this model and the blackberry bold 9900.
Do you know what the e-mailing experience is like ? I mean the viewing, writing, receiving emails. Is it close to a blackberry or not ?
As i know the blackberry uses some kind of special internet connection that won't use you internet all the time while receiving e-mails. Is this avaible for the Samsung galaxy s II or do i need a special kind of connection ?
I would like some feedback from some ppl that know more than i know.

Thank you.

Hy,

I'm very undecided between this model and the blackberry 9900 bold.
I don't know if this phone is good for sending and receiving e-mails and how is the writing experience.
Also i don't know if i need a special internet connection. As far as i know blackberry uses a special connection that doesn't uses your internet.
I could use some advice from some ppl that know more than i do.

Thank you,

Those of you who are still reeling from the review, all the nay sayers "where's the review?" well.....

I noticed also the SAR came in low, 0.34. When it needs to scores high it does, and it when it needs to scores low it does.
"It shoots, it scores, whatever the requisite amount needed to fulfil the objective" we chanted

Unfortunately as GSMARENA discovered some items you have to purchase additionally
