If this was happening to that many devices, there would be an outbreak all over the net and Samsung would have to do something about it. I'm pretty sure it would have made it on GSM Arena's front page as it seem they follow Galaxy line quite closely.

Those who experience the problem are more inclined to find these forums to talk about it and this factor skews the statistics. Of course the polls on such forums will show high number of users that experience this issue. But think about it. 35% of 10 million is 3.5 million devices. That's a huge number. How many out of 10 million users were sampled? How many devices are being shipped back to Samsung? How many people actually experience this issue?

If even half of 3.5 million people reported this issue, I'm pretty sure Samsung would do something about it. I know Samsung doesn't have the best software support but they have decent hardware support.

If you are aware of this problem and know how to take care of your phone, you can enjoy all the benefits of the AMOLED. I'm pretty freaking sure people won't mind not leaving their phone on for long periods of time, people won't mind that they lower the brightness down when it isn't needed.

65% of the users just don't give a damn.

Even it is 60000 hours, your display will last more than 30 years if you turned on the display 5 hours a day, but who uses 5 hours everyday? In my case, it will last about 100 years. I am using Galaxy S for almost one year. No burn-in at all. the display is fantastic. Black is pure black, and the color is amazing. Once you experience the super amoled, you will not look for a LCD display. It's sooooooo good.

Wonder if they knew that Eric Scmidt the CEO of Google sat on both Apple and Google boards. Also wonder if they knew that when the google founders were looking for a CEO, they chose Steve Jobs.

Relax guys, the top guys at Google and Apple are hanging out enjoying themselves having fun with your money, what's the point of you guys fighting down here in some comment section on a website.

Just enjoy the tech and cihill.

Best spec i have ever seen in a mobile phone.. good one samsung.. My only concern is ur good looking phone department.. You guys really need some good creative guys to work on design part of the phone. Better and louder ringtone is also welcome.. Design wise Optimus 2x is good.

I have searched some info about a "Super AMOLED" and its "Burn-In" effect and seams that about 35% of "Super AMOLED" users are telling that their screens are affected by Burn-In effect. And that is pretty sad!
So, it would be useful to know more official news about "Super AMOLED Plus" lifetime and "Burn-In" effect, I think it may be a big disadvantage! :(

> In reply to Prateek Gupta @ 2011-04-12 18:19 from vI99 - click to readI now have thought of a nickname but posted anonymously

my post below was reply Prateek Gupta. 1gb was referring to HTC SENSATION not the Galaxy.

I dont know if this the 1.2ghz processor was used in this test or the original 1ghz anybody

*************************
As the song goes 2 outta 3 ain't bad
1Gb isn't enough storage that is why there is an 8Gb card
second only HSPDA 900/2100 not a world phone

"Also in the benchmark tests, SGS2 lagged behind Optimus 2x." this really benefits gamers and LG 2X was only marginally better.

the reason I cut+pasted you comments is the 1.2Ghz was a recent addition per comments.
the so called lag was when tested against the 1Ghz so are you using old data ?

I want sexy high-tech coloured LEDs.

Maybe the "Galaxy S III Super AMOLED Plus Mega" will have it or the version after it.

Unless you just meant they come out with a new one at which every single company does this kinda thing. Samsung is just coming out with newer cooler and better stuff while doing it.

If everybody would buy a phone with a screen which lasts long people would not come back on this site. Samsung found the solution: you cna upgrade yourself the operating system or live with a slow processor but you can't change yourself a limited life span screen so they are in control when you''l by a new one, first OLED, then AMOLED, then Super AMOLED, then Super AMOLED Plus, after 6 months Super AMOLED Mega and so on.
