All this Dual-Core stuff sounds good. But why do you need a Dual-Core processor on a phone? What applications will it run that need the power of a 1.2 Dual-Core processor? Most phones running a Single-Core processor do a splendid job. Look at the iPhone 4, Xperia Arc & Play, Galaxy S etc... So if any one can shed some light on this please let me know...
First of all Happy Easter to all on here, as well as the staff here at GSMArena. So on Friday I went next door to a little family dinner I was invited to and the house was full of cels. 2 Captivates 1. Atrix and Blackberries. well I was a litte curious on the Captivate and the SGS. The first thing I noticed was the feel of the phones I am a big guy large hands and the Atrix was a perfect fit - for one hand usage..the Galaxy S fit better with two hands for viewing a movie. Makes me wonder how the SGS will feel during calls and one hand situations. Second thing I noticed was the vast improvement with Dual Core.. pulling up pictures was tedious on the Galaxy S - it would lag at times. So to those who state "no need for dual core", you are sadly mistaken and this is only one situation.

Anyone knows when this phone will be out? I need to replace my N8 which have a purple screen defect. The fanboys on the Nokia N8 forums are not being helpful and are trying to cover up the defect. I'm sick and tired of dealing with Nokia. They admitted the defect but can't solve the issue. I'm switching to sgs 2.
Folks I'm from India(Chennai)!!!
I went to a Samsung Mobile priority dealer today @ 8.30 P.M IST for asking when ll this phone available for sales.
To my surprise he said they ll have this phone tomorrow in stores for sales. He didn't confirm the price yet cause as soon as the piece he gets he ll know.
So I took his phone number to call him tomorrow for the availability and price. I'll call him and update u fellas!!!

Have a look at this retail unit.
So fast with the dual core. Can't wait to get my hands on one.
[deleted post]I agree with this, without the 'not' of course. ;)
I am starting to see thogh, that those with positive words are starting to also be heard, and that it is no longer just Apple fanboy, vs Samsung fanboy vs Android etc.
There is a new movement taking place, and that is those with common sense vs the trolls. I notice Samsung fans with common sense, speaking out against Samsung trolls, and Apple fans speaking out against Apple fanatic fanboys.
Truth is, most people don't have problems with each other, but it is the extreme fanboys who make trouble for everybody.
hey guys here is an unboxing videos of the samsung galaxy S 2 enjoy
