HTC sensation is good in its on place. However the aesthetic looks of galaxy s 2 are unmatched compared to the colourful body of HTC sensation. I think both processor are good.

My N8 is still the best camera phone even after 7 months from its launch. If not for the purple screen defect it would have been the best smartphone ever. It's just sad that we are still suffering from this purplegate fiasco. Nokia don't have a fix for it and they don't want to recall the defective N8s. Visit the N8 forums and you'll see people suffering from this defect that ruined Nokia's name.

Anyway, Samsung should enjoy this short lived triumph. The MeeGo N9 will be crowned the best smartphone when it comes out.

the latest review has the following paragraph in page 2
"The bad news is that the MHL adapter required for HD TV-out and the USB adapter enabling the USB host functionality aren’t included. It’s a real pity – both work pretty well but many users will probably not bother purchasing them and won’t get a chance to try them."

does this mean that if i want to connect a USB, i HAVE GOT TO AND MUST AND THERE IS NO WAY OTHER THAN this USB host, or is it just a passive link, that i can replace with a cable (micro USB to female USB)

plz help...this matters to me... nokia n8 says it has "USB on the go" support...

I can say the same things as u said... Buy a SatNav GPS unit if it's ur concern, it will give u far more better, faster & accurate experience.
If u want 1080p video rec. than u should rather buy a Dedicated HandyCam/camera which will not only provide u much superb video rec. but 60fps recording instead of 30fps and far more superior zooming options than sgs2.
If u want document reading & editing than u should rather open ur laptop/pc which will allow u to even read files upto hundreds of mb and gb and with a 15" or 17" u will be much more comfortable.
There is always a dedicated, bigger and much better option for everything we have in our phones but that doesn't mean that we should neglect those functions in smartphones.

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.

does the recorded format allows you to play it back in your laptop lets say?

this function very useful for me, specially if you want to record lectures etc,

how is the quality of record ? lets say from 2 m distance?

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.
