If that's the case then u are saying every mobile phone manufacturer has poor quality parts in them. Samsung is a leading distributor for memory, processor and screen matrix etc to many companies such as Nokia and Apple. The only reason screens got better in mobiles is due to Samsung as they upped the game with AMOLED which meant more competition in this area (good for the consumer) Apple had to find a solution to AMOLED and their answer was the retina display which by the way is a good tech. In regards to making profit,as Samsung manufacture their own components the cost to the customer is considerably less than it would be for say Apple or Nokia as those companies need to pay licenses to Samsung for the components and their delivery thus passing on the excess in cost to the customer.

Actually, even Koreans don't think well of Samsung or LG or Hyundai.. they are THERE, so what can they do but buy them, right?? But quality? hell, no. Samsung is a PARTS SUPPLIER, first and foremost. If a single part, say a Dual-core CPU unit, is what sells, then they get it from their warehouses and slap it on each and every phone they make.. Design? WHAT is that? "copy iphone to be sure" is their philosophy.

But one thing is for sure, Samsung is THE place to go to if you need parts, ANY parts, and you want them parts to be CHEAP. So I will not be surprised if Samsung slaps a TV unit with Blu Ray on their smartphones tomorrow -- they got the parts for that too.

But design? sorry, you are in the wrong department.

If this phone has any back-illuminated CMOS image sensor like sony ericssion new expria or iphone 4 for taken pictures in dark then we can call this great phone is PERFECT but sadly its camera is simple with led flash and 8mp, for camera department samsung has not done any innovation for this phone.

But it is very close to be perfect ;)

A plastic back that can be bent into a circle and not lose its shape, That must be cheap plastic!!!!. I have had a lot of Samsung phones that were plastic and metal and there build quality is always second to none. The look of this mobile is fine and i will spend all my time looking at that amazing screen and using that awesome processor. 8.5mm dude, f***** amazing!!!!

for your info, Korean always manufacture a super high specification and advance products such cars (exmp: Hyundai & KIA), super flat LCD tv, computer, mobile phone etc. But the quality of their products are very very low and cheap. If you can maintain the korean car on the road for at least 5 years, you can be the luckiest person in the world.

Yeah, I love the Gs2 Specs and everything. Especially the Super Amoled plus display and the Exynos processor. The only thing i "dislike" about the phone is the built qulity, its just too plasticky. But it's really a great phone. I think Second to it, would be the Htc Sensation.

wow !! this phone is really plastic, the cover so soft and cheap material. Although it has a good software and latest technology but the physical phone is really cheap product. Samsung make 500% profit from this type of phone. The cost extimated around USD 120.00 and it can sell till USD 600.00. Think before you buy.

> In reply to azer @ 2011-05-10 07:39 from w0PK - click to readI agree with sammy lover i=idiots.
on another note i am getting more and more involved in sgs2..I keep changing and adjusting stuff all the time.I usually am bored with a fone after a week but this thing gets better and better..Audio is better than sgs which i said was superb,,the treble is even crisper and i can push it more without that horrible scratchy shrill effect..the effect is when someone says "S" or cymbals when it goes horrible.If anyone knows if they have used a new wolfson DSP chip please tell.

I change the wallpaer from live to static then play a game,then i am listening to music ,then using google docs and then taking test photos then trying video then twittering then online its just so good.I have got dropbox on now which is a first and torch using LED on front screen.Dont know why they have 4 new icons over sgs which are,,

Music Hub,Games,Readers Hub ans Social Hub.The reader is good you can get lots of books,i used aldiko or something on sgs but this is weell cool.I must try the video editor to see how it copes with 1080p.There is built in polaris office but have not tried these as using google docs but nice.Samsung suggests gives a list of trending app downloads it seems.

I am still exploring everything and getting used to it one week on.

Post your iphone4 inside Iphone category, don't mess with Samsung Galaxy S II.
You doesn't own the Samsung, you don't know much.
Don't compliant anything that you no touch before.

Hi guys.
I would like to know how is this phone different or superior than LG Optimus 2x?
Is it worth keeping in your jeans pocket or is it big enough to carry in your hands all the time?
Most importantly, will it cost more than Optimus 2x or would be the same?
