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?
FURY, 10 Apr 2011Yeah Dual Core - Bigger Screen and a 8 meg Camera...I am Glad that Apple is still a leader and... moreIts not the matter whether Samsung or Apple is the leader. The real truth is that the little green robot , ANDROID is closing nearer and nearer behind
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
X, 09 Apr 2011i want ask .. is it supports Arabic language ?? since the software is Android 2.3 .. then it supports :) .. thanks
This is a good phone but I think the price of this phone is gone cost an ARM and leg on the release of this phone here in the Philippine , it will be a race for which company gonna release the first dualcore phone ,who has a good aftersale service and steadily releases os updates
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2011yeah, do that.

I mean Apple is Breaking ground with all these "new" features and improvemnts coming out in JUNE - what will the competition do to catch up???
i've attended show bro.... its complete piece of copy cat and demanding to meet better than others.... rather it has no creative ideas in them.....
1. design similar to iphone... it is a broad screen i phone with flash...
2. soft ware update is common... but uniqueness from other company feature lacks here.
3. targeted on to make slimmest phone. so fragile i hope...
4. dual core processor doesn't seem so good or better than single core nexus one phone...
5. basic android phone... with no uniqueness has seen like htc features...
6. draw back 480*800 in latest phone is sucks...
7. may be atttractive but soon forgettable on releas of other models.....
8. no idea about battery.... i m sorry
9. it will be so shiny in day light like samsung galaxy s ..... i hope because it is super amoled plus....
rex, 10 Apr 2011I will wait for iphone 5. Iphone is the best smartphone in terms of quality of the screen and ... moreyeah, do that.

Honestly, take it from me, iPhone has hit the "plateau" of its product cycle. You can only make so much improvements on a single product, before you realize that BEYOND this, you cannot improve any further without changing the product itself.
iOS is a closed platform. Maybe Apple can tweak it here and there, but it cannot do an ANDROID. If you notice, until now, iphone doesnt have radio, adobe flash,.. or even live wallpapers. apple added multi-tasking, like an afterthought, to iphne 4 and look what a sorry-ass joke it looks like compared to Android's multi-tasking.. ;p
Despite being handicapped, Apple iphone still improves in TRICKLES.. added 3G in iphone 3g, added better camera in 3gs, added camera flash in 4.. coz if they put all the features at once, they wont have anything left to put in. iPhone is like a box with 4 corners. This time, all 4 corners are full, so where do you go now??
My bet is Apple will go the Android way and go vertical -- increase iphone size to 4", and dual-core cpu.
RONALD, 10 Apr 2011This phone have great up to date proccessor+OS, have best mobile phone big display with the ve... moreN8 is not impressive, maybe Arc or Neo is. I tried N8 instore, and it got yellow fringes on pics. Didnt see it with Arc though. Arc IS impressive, though, bright or no light. Fantastic phone for camera buffs.
S2, however, is underwhelming. For price of $900, all you get is dual-core, and, s-amoled plus screen 4.3" (so big). The casing is identical to the cheapie- Galaxy Ace, while the apps are same as that you would find on cheaper Samsung smartphones like Ace or Gio. No special LWP, or unique apps, installed, unlike the original galaxy S. The in-box accessories are also standard stuff--
I will wait until maybe 6 months, for models with same specs, but cheaper price, rolls in.
This phone is for the ones with deep pockets..:P
With yet no confirm schedule of launch, its getting more and more tough to wait for this masterpiece. I don’t see any other phone so close to S2 as of now. I see following heads-up:
1) Super Amoled -- 4.3 Inches
2) 1.2 Ghz Dual Core CPU, 1 GB RAM
3) 8 MP with LED Flash
Though somewhere I feel Sony Erricsion Arc was somewhere close but no front camera defeats it. Also, not sure on LED LCD vs S-Amoled. SE Arc comes with 1500 MAh NI-Polimer as compared to Li-Ion in Galaxy. NI-PO are better and stable batteries and give much longer life.
I am from India and trying to arrange this Mobile from my friends in US, hoping this will get launched there much before in India.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2011I just don't understand Samsung. Best parts inside, worst parts outside. Every samsung phone l... morePlastic is used to reduce the WEIGHT not the cost. Every dual core and single core are coming in at 130 - 140g because it uses some sort of metal where Samsung used plastic. Who said that smart phone must be made part metal. or why do we accept some items made of plastic and not call it a toy. Toys yes are made of plastic as metals sharp painted etc, Samsung are not cost cutting but reducing weight they have not used plastic instead of say platinum. The only repeated criticism is that it is PLASTIC & (Gorilla glass) toy? where r the expensive looking phones with these specs? toy? SOME TOY THIS IS.
Dual-core processor will not draw more battery power – both cores can run at lower speeds, which requires less battery than one core running at the equivalent speed – dual-core is actually more battery efficient around 75% of the time. Only processor intensive cycles will drain the battery quicker in dual-core.
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 ?
