retina display is 320 pix while SAMoLED is 200 pix .so its sharper.

Whatever you say you don't seem to be able to express yourself well, more incoherent.
check out my favorite video of all time! just posted today by pritesh thanks pritesh.

My view are this as much as you keep promising to buy another phone you never will why you haven't used another moniker except SAMSUNG, even this phone is beyond you limits you will be window shopping NEVER BUYING never ever buying just making utterings.

This phone is extremely expensive and I think that Samsung have included functions you will definitely NOT need in my opinion based on 8 i/d & your comments.

Things I think you whoever you are today won't need

Conference call: for obvious reasons and similarly
call waiting:
3g video call:
Camera function self timer:*
GPS*
(* just 4U hint is at least one person)

also you may find that your "favourite contacts" and voice mail number BOTH connect you to voice mail.

This is my final response to you but to clarify, the date today is MAY 9th, I post under the name of April 12th, I thought I had better explain it just in case you had to be somewhere special and you know, well actually you don't.

There is no such thing as a phone PDA android system which is all things to all men , seek and find what suits you, the simpler the better, life is already over complicated these technologies are running our lifes and in most case keep us from what is important.

A human more holistic communication is a better way technologies speed things up not always for the good. What happened to the Okie pokie.

damnn 850$ in swedan , its way to expensive .I think sony ericsson xperia arc wpuld be the best deal after this .SGS2 is god but if it would have been like 650 or 700 $ then i would have given it a thought. In india it will be of 39,990 i have confermed :(

A Korean power blogger posted 9 things I hate with Galaxy S2. He said it is such a rubbish.
The things he hated are:

- Dull display
- Design your grandfather would like
- Auto reset
etc.

Got the headset last week, its kickass!

The battery is excellent, the screen is brilliant, and its ultra fast and responsive.

Watching movies is a pleasure, surfing the net is a joy, and playing games is very graphically impressive.

The camera is the best there is (i had samsung omnia HD I8910 beforehand).

I compared the phone to Iphone 4 yesterday, and its just so much better - INCOMPARABLE.

HIGHLY RECOMEMDED

Look the iPhone4 display, with it's incredible 800:1 contrast ratio, just can't be compared with the SGS2's sAmoled+ display. Period. (And you can hold on thight to your beloved PPI as long as you want, it barely make any difference to the human eye...)

Hell, I only have a 3.3 sAmoled screen right now and all the iPhone4 users around me are just blown away by it... lol. Wait until Apple release the next iPhone with a sAmoled screen and all the iFans are gonna swear it's the best thing ever. ;)

It mostly gets warm when charging but this is perfectly normal. Some peeps have been implying that its gets so hot ur face melts but this is complete BS, trust me. Components in any electronic device get warm, especially those with batteries and processors.Think of it like a mini computer, all computers generate heat and manufacturers keep the heat at bay by using fans or small heat sinks.

I know from owning previous phones that if I turn off push email the battery will last longer as the internet connection is always on ready to push new emails to u. I haven't had a single crash yet. Some people will always bang on about battery life but I can assure you that considering the power of the phone Samsung did a great job here. Maybe u should wait until GSM review it for the full picture if u are still unsure.

A truly excellent handset and a step in the right direction for Android in general. All we need now is the Android App store to fully rival that of Apple's. In theory if more people begin to switch from Apple to Android then network effects should begin in time to turn delelopers in our favour. Buy it!! You really wont be disappointed.
