Vedant, 05 Jun 2011Hi everyone. I have the original galaxy s since August of last year and it's been running grea... moreHi mate, to be fair,
i was in the same situation as you, i bought also in July last year my SGS1 and i just bought 2 days ago this SGS2.
It's hard to recommend it as an upgrade unless you can get it cheaper or as renewal / new subscription.
1080P, 8MP and dual core are the only upgrades, basically the phone is the same, same box, same package, same menus, UI is barely different, oh you don't have to scroll back to 1st pages once you reach the last one, it's looping now (woohoo). A bit more options here and there, a little upgrade in SMS app.
8MP ain't a surprise, Samsung had reached already 12MP with Pixon12 2 years ago or so. Guess they are saving it for SGSIII. Don't misunderstand me, it's a great phone, but hard to see the immediate changes with a SGS1 upgraded to 2.3.3 (excepted i had that battery drain bug). The overall faster feeling is due mostly to much faster internal SD i think first then 1.2ghz then dual core but to me it feels like the phone isn't completely optimized yet, so we may expect some good speed upgrades like we got with SGS1.
So it's your call or you can wait furthermore that the price lowers a bit, there's no rush for now, that's my best advice to SGS1 owners.
Btw, the phone is a bit bigger, not so big, but still it won't fit in my current SGS1's soft case.
i love this phone my friend is using it fo 3mnths now&we are realy enjoy the phone,the most of its bcs it almost as the galaxy tab,the features are fabolous..
Suhail, 04 Jun 2011Galaxy S 2 is really an Awesome phone.....so light... Fast....the only issue i am facing with ... moreman is it released in KSA??? cas its not officially announced in middle east!!!!
Kiruba, 05 Jun 2011Thanks. Is it better than Samsung Nexus S in terms of speed, touch responsive, etc...?Samsung galaxy s2 speed is more due to monster dual core.
As,my user experience touch response of s2 is better.Also,speaker and battery life of nexus S is very bad as compared to s2.
Hope,these answers clears your doubt.
Can anyone reply on touch response because I had used my friend mobile for few minutes only.After 1-2 years,when my parents will give me money.Then,I will buy it and make custom ROM for it,which utilizes the power of dual core.As,I do not like touchwiz.Till then,I have to continue my work on LG optimus one

It is loud enough when watching movies or taking calls. The battery is good for this beast, I get a day and a half with heavy use. The battery gets better and better with each charge. The build quality of this phone is fantastic, 8.5 mm thickness and even thou it is made of plastic it is really well made and designed. My friends iphone4 feels like a brick compared to this. Well done Samsung it is one great phone.
is it worth 30K??? plz help which should i choose s2/ip4/atrix/lg x2???
Kiruba, 04 Jun 2011Loudspeaker performance?Loudspeaker sound quality - not to my liking, would rate it below par. I have an iphone 3GS which speaker SQ is much better.
Surely this phone is awesome except that a)the battery sucks, b) sound quality from speaker is below par, c) body quality is cheap.
I had to recharge by evening (after having charged early morning), that too not using 3G at all! The speaker quality is awful, though its a pleasure (great screen) to watch the video clippings on youtube. Watched the same video clipping on -iphone 3GS, iphone has a much better speaker. Only if iphone had flash support or S2 had a better battery and speaker!!!
