anaheim, 25 Apr 2011David Richards is a writer, so he doesnt tell the whole story. Ask a researcher, instead. ... moreExcept for the last 2 paragraphs, here is where your rationale is flawed.There comes a time when you simply cannot redesign a product eg spectacles, on the face lens in front of the eye (wait, idea no wouldn't work) support arms to position lens (wait..oh cr ). There comes a point where even a designer isn't required as you reached the optimal point! Just one example. Not convinced, no patents filed in this example but copied extensively. Mother nature, Its got a heart, I want a heart, Its got lungs etc. genes to copy these traits evolution. Different species same basic equipment. This has been answered more eloquently in earlier post. Screen icons are similar as to be recognisable. If sammy cannot come up with anything 'new' against my better judgement I will be acquiring this status quo device. There is something about this phone we see more than we see in other models.

... more"As for Apple suing Samsung over "iphone patents", that lawsuit is BALONEY. IF Apple wants to get the real "imitators", then they should sue Chinese "iphone makers" in Beijing, coz these Chinese sell EXACT REPLICAS of iphone 4 and 3GS for $10 a piece, and they ship them to Dubai, the Philippines, even Europe. Steve Jobs just needs more money from Samsung, thats all I can say..."
You speak as if Apple is suing for the first time.
1. Apple has sued HTC (Taiwanese company) for infringing 20 iPhone patents
2. Apple sued Psystar for copyright infringement - Won
3. Apple sued Microsoft and HP for gui - Lost
4. Apple sued Meizu (Chinese company)
Apple sues whoever it thinks is infringing on its intellectual property rights, as well as if they think they have a good case. Suing chinese clone makers is problematic because Chinese intellectual property laws make it difficult to win cases.
Also, please note that just as much as Apple sues others, many also sue Apple, so its no big deal.
Lastly, please note that Android itself also is involved both in suing and being sued.
1. Google sued Eric Specht to use the Android name (can you believe that?)
2. Google sued the friggin US Govt for considering only Microsoft in improving messaging functionality.
3. Microsoft is suing Android as it believes it has patents that can allow it to get fees.
4. Oracle sued Android (Google) for Java related patents.
1. Its a lawsuit minefield out there, companies suing companies is no big deal, just business as usual.
2. I have no law knowledge, but came up with the above in just 2 minutes of Google - just a simple search can do wonders in backing up your comments with facts. Please utilise it, after all, wouldnt it be ironic if Android fanboys didn't know how to use... Google?
3. Who cares? If Apple wins against Samsung, will you suddenly be forced to buy love Apple? And vice versa, if Samsung wins, will Apple fans have to convert to Samsung? Don't think so, its not the end of the world guys. Enjoy your phones.
anaheim, 25 Apr 2011David Richards is a writer, so he doesnt tell the whole story. Ask a researcher, instead. ... moreThat may all be true except that SE does not make superior phones, especially to Samsung. Samsung is a jack of all trades and they do it well. Yes I will admit that sometimes SE is better in the design department, but as far as what is ticking inside Samsung blows pretty much all away with their best.
RONALD, 25 Apr 2011I am from 1% and 100% sure that u r from 99%.If you really gonna buy S2 then you haven't justified yourself like in which court you belong 1% or 99%, again my saying is true 99% just BLAB!
I have a problem concerning MHL port, currently, if I am not mistaken, ANY television have MHL functionality, then , it is not possible to charging the SGS2 via this way, except by using an adapter, moreover which is the cable who can be connected on Smartphone, a micro USB connected at the phone side but on which port of the HDTV, does the mirroring work, currently, without the MHL technology on the HDTV, is the really specific cable USB to HDMI provided with the phone?
Czar, 23 Apr 201199% of people who post about galaxy S 2 will never buy it they just blab blabI am from 1% and 100% sure that u r from 99%.

Czar, 23 Apr 201199% of people who post about galaxy S 2 will never buy it they just blab blabyou're right...lol
Regarding the procesor whether it would be Exynos or Tegra 2. What I can see that, country origin of Samsung manufacturer is in Korea and Korea itself located in south east asia. For their own country and their own people, of-cause they will provide the best phone which is Exynos processor. if south east asia will have best processor, India will be one of the country will receive the same processor.

Samsung made 3.6 billion in profits, yes, but they also spent trillion dollars in research, manufacturing, and marketing their thousands of products, from railroad cars to ships to cellphones to radios... Samsung is a behemoth in Korea, and the Korean people are actually the "compulsory investors" into this company, since parts of their tax go into the capitalization of Samsung (and LG too).
Compare this to Sony Ericsson which is a smaller but mobile phone-oriented company, spun off from Sony. Unlike Samsung, SE makes only mobiles. Period. You will never see any SE washing machines, or SE rice cookers. In Korea, there are even Samsung cars (not just mobile phones) and Samsung watches!!!
To summarize, with the huge, almost-universal scope of Samsung's operations, I am not surprised they earned $billions. I would be more surprised, in fact, if they didn't.
As for SE, they make superior mobile phones that are unique in their own right, so I actually prefer SE over Samsung, if given the chance. See, SE specializes in mobile phones, while Samsung is a "generic" manufacturer of EVERYTHING electronics under the sun. Being a jack of all trades, Samsung is very poor in design aesthetics, which explains why sometimes they imitate some best-selling designs for their products (Japanese designs are the common victims of Korean rip-offs)...
As for Apple suing Samsung over "iphone patents", that lawsuit is BALONEY. IF Apple wants to get the real "imitators", then they should sue Chinese "iphone makers" in Beijing, coz these Chinese sell EXACT REPLICAS of iphone 4 and 3GS for $10 a piece, and they ship them to Dubai, the Philippines, even Europe. Steve Jobs just needs more money from Samsung, thats all I can say...
