I used Galaxy S2 last 2monhs and before the Galaxy S2 I used Galaxy R and I now I know why Galaxy S2 is popular. Its slim, powerful, high features and all high end mobile. Its touchscreen is far better then Galaxy R and screen r too mind blowing and battery back up also good and same like galaxy R. I need better performance and thats why I installed and try check performance in different of, like Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich & finally jelly bean and now I know which version is very good and well, its Ice cream Sandwich 4.0.4 cause its fast, good graphics and the best thing is the sound quality is much better then gingerbread and Jelly Bean. Who is sound lover I'm telling U guys just installed Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. Just go Sammobile.com and download firmware for your region.
Guys don't update your S2 to Jelly Bean OS.....it's giving alot of problems.....

me-me, 16 Aug 2013i give this phone a 6/10, overall,
screen responsiveness 9/10
memory 2... moreYou are wrong. The phone has 1.97 Gb of "device memory"and 11.49 Gb of "Usb storage" whatever that is. You can move apps from device to usb. Plus of course the memory card that you cannot use for apps as with every android phone.
Best phone i ever had...
buki, 13 Aug 2013should i buy s2 or s2 plus? please let me knowBuy s2 not s2 plus because s2 plus having some software problem
i give this phone a 6/10, overall,
screen responsiveness 9/10
app store 5/10 (android overall review)
phoning and texting 7/10
i am very impressed with the camera, takes exellent pictures, but thats not what I paid for when i got the phone, so what if the camera is great, if thats the only great thing it does.
the screen responsiveness is definitely comparable to apple, (and asides from the camera being far superior and the price range) its the only thing the s2 is comparable with the iphone. everything else is far below the iphone. memory for example, it has me pulling my hair out, the phone has 16 gb of memory (not bad) except for the fact that it only has 2 gb for games, like What the heck? even when i add an external sd not every app can go on the sd, and the ones that do still take room on the phones app memory, the iphone or even the ipod touch has this phone beat without competition here, seeing as if i get a 16 gb iphone (minus the os memory) i can use all the memory for apps if i wanted to. and when I put music and pictures and all that, the phone always puts it on its internal memory, like why do i bother with the external? and when i transfer music from the internal to the external i can no longer play it on the player. again i would not be havign this problem with ANY iPhone! samsung needs to fix that.
app store is meh, no where near the apple store, has good games, but no where near as good as the apple market, yeah maybe this phone has better processors, but what is the point when their is no game on the market good enough to need that kind of processing speed.
and for phoning and texting? phoning works great, texting and writing on the phone is a pain (as is with any touch screen imo)
