A survey has conducted that iphone4s os will often crash 80% of total...and the battery backup of iphone4s is totaly poor(SUCKS) compared normal android froyo 2.2 os
All the apps in apple market are costly...there is less free apps available in apple market compared to android market
there is no custom firmware for iphone os and it is costly !!! Its yearly sales percentage increases by 1.5% from 2011-2012...Even moderate people can afford android devices at lowest prices
I installed Lightening ROM 2.6 in My S2.
It comes with ICS v4.0.3 and rooted with a cool blue theme.
Everything working fine and faster.
Much faster than standard ICS and better looking.

The best Android machine till date.
Despite the fact that the phone is slightly on the upper side in price band, it's worth every penny of it...
The phone has absolutely silky smooth touch feel, amazing speed buoyed by a powerful processor and a kickass back mounted camera.
Secondary camera is amazingly well...
In addition, the Wifi direct feature is absolutely a cherry on the cake and this phone thus deserves to the best android device around!!!

It is not all about teoretical hardware specs!
We can not even know if the coming game Max Payne will even be supported on S2 even though the hardware is more than capable running/playing it. When you buy an Android you do not really know what Android games and apps that are fully supported on your new Android phone!

It is just a 1Ghz dual core! And its screen is IPS LCD. Personally I think AMOLED is much better in terms of battery and colour reproduction. What Apple has done is they have taken a normal LCD screen and increase the resolution.
And iPhone 4S is not worth the cost especially in India. They want 50k plus for that crap. I must be mad to get that for 50K plus. I can get a laptop with core i7 for that kind of money.
Apple doesn't respect the Indian market!
Actually please don't compare S2 with iPhone. There is no room for comparison at all. In hardware terms iPhone is way behind. You can check out in Google about the iPhone hardware.
'The' phone to buy. With its ARM Dual-Core Exynos and Mali 400MP GPU which is quad core, this phone is extreme. 1GB RAM makes it future proof as well at least for the next 1 to 2 years.
Superb Screen. Awesome Camera. Zero lag in taking photos. Full HD Video recording.
Lots of customizations. Highest Custom Rom support.
CynogenMod, MIUI, you name it! And the new CM9 is superb.
All in all the best phone to buy when you see in terms of developer support and hardware support.
So if you are not a noob and you know how to handle phones properly and you are not going to just use it for calls and use the stock firmware you will be surprised with the personalization it can offer.
There may be other phones with better hardware now but nothing beats it! The have made an almost complete phone.
It came before:
Been using this beast for 5 months..still cant put my hands off it!!
Also replaced the 1650 mah battery with an original 2000 mah battery..
Its just amazing..still gives head on competition to many new phones..looking 4wrd to s3 launch!!!
hook, 05 Apr 2012my phone gets this blue color at the top or bottom of the screen when I scroll all the way up ... morethe blue color is the transition effect. it is not a glitch.that happens in all the galaxy s2 in all parts of the world. so dont worry and be happy and eat a sugar cookie with redbull...
I have been using this phone for abt 2 months. This is the best phone EVER!!! Everything runs so well... games,music,gps,android... etc.. even one time I used gps,music,skype and camera at almost the same time.. there was no lag at all !!! Really guys...
There are q lot of phones on the market... but i think that the only good ones are just two: iphone 4s and galaxy s2. iphone hardware is great but come on... iOS sucks!!!! you are like in a prison !! no divx movies, no subt, no flash, mp3 problems ..
btw, I galaxy s2 battery life is Great! if you do a lot of surfing,gaming etc.. it last a full day (this is very normal) and if you use it mostly for callings it can lasts abt 3 days.. And do not forget you can always buy some cheap 2nd add. battery just in case..
can you do this with Iphone 4s ? :)))
Galaxy s2 is just freedom !
galaxy Sll the same as prostetute,can not through her out coz of her performance insted of regular granted nokia woman
