Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II - user opinions and reviews

Samsung

Sort by:

The specs are very good and Samsung phones are not too bad, however whats up with the design? All of their phones look the same today. I can barely tell them apart. Alot of phones from Samsung resemble the iphone too much. Now i know apple gets their most of their hardware from Samsung but that's no excuse for the design to be so familiar. Its not like they are from the same company.1 thing i commend Nokia is Sony Ericsson for is their original and unique designs.I love the design of the Nokia X7, E7 and C7. The N8 is probably the most industrial device i have ever seen.It is truly a beauty esp. the camera at the back. I love the fact that its not flat. The Sony Ericsson Xperia series is also quite beautiful.Please take some notes Samsung.

How long before we see screen burn-in and deterioration with this Super AMOLED Plus? 6 months? 480 hours on the blue OLED with a fixed image?

It's unbelievable how Samsung and everyone else advertise how the black levels is so rich and how the colors are vibrant, yet they don't speak of the screen lifespan.

Don't tell me to set the brightness to the lowest, to turn the screen off asap and not leave it on too much. If I'm paying a premium price for such a phone, I want it to use it at the best setting and however I want without having to worry the screen colors washing out or whatever deterioration within less than a year.

I'll wait for the inventory of its Super AMOLED Plus stock depleting and get the version equipped with SLCD (if there isn't a better phone available), so still on the quest to find a new phone.

Half the components on the iphone is made by samsung.

You can only have so much variation on a bar phone. When people want big screens and still have the phone ergonomic. You get the same design.

Its not just samsung or apple. EVERYONE has the same design cause it works.

Jees how anyone can believe the iphone 4 comes close to even the SGS that alone the SGSII is beyond me. You could bash on about the iphone 5 but no officially released specs are availabel as far as I know yet?

no changeable battery no sd card slot, no flash support, no true multitasking, you sure this thing is a smartphone?

IF and when apple get the hardware platform REMOTELY upto date then it may be worth considering paying the artificially inflated contract price for their product but frankly the Android OS is now at least as good if not better and this was really where their lead came from. But there hardware has been at least one if not two generations out of date since day one.

Personally I think it's better already if you have your own brain and are willing to put a little bit of time into making it what you need.

Samsung devices are great but the Galaxy S design are horrible. The phones designed for left hands not right. They should reconsider the design before the Galaxy S2.

This phone have great up to date proccessor+OS, have best mobile phone big display with the very slim light weight design and GSMarena allready shows its camera quality of day shorts which is good but the only thing which we should scared about that is the camera of Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II be able to take better pictures/videos in dark or low light or not becaure it dont have either zenon flash or not any backlit sensor like Exmor R ?

what u all think is Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II can take better pictures/videos in dark-lowlight like nokia n8 or Sony Ericsson new XPERIA series which have Exmor R sensor or not ?

It's awesome! It's almost back up to 80% almost! And Samsung is deffinately the best! Apple is just that company that has the name that is in the lead cause so many people don't know any better until it's too late. And Android is deffinately on the rise to the top! Everyone is denying it, just like they deny that icrap sucks, but you can't change what's happening

Will the Samsung Galaxy S2 really feature only 800 X 480 resolution over the 4.27" display? That's going to give a terrible ppi, grossly inferior to the iPhone 4.

Any news to the contrary?

the Apple each day. Is just the matter of time ANDROID will be the platform that most of the people will use in their handphone.... and will be taking over apple.

Just a matter of time my dear friend
