i asked for galaxy S2 only to find out later i was given i9100G. went back to the store and the dealer says both are the same.
i compared the specifications of both.
The cpu's are different. that is a big difference.
The speed of HSDPA are different.
The speed of HSUPA are different.
Price of i9100G is almost the same as i9100.
i used the the i900G for a few days.
poor browser experience. my galaxy s plus was faster opening a web page.
the i9100G was not able to play a particular TV program but the galaxy S plus was able to do.
if you want your money's worth ask for i9100.
if you want to "waste" your money, buy the 19100. at least i9100 is the better product.
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2012i had sent email to Samsung official website regarding my I9100G phone always hang, still wait... moreGood luck, I did the same, and they replied to sent my phone to nearset service center. Well did reply to them that I sent it twice (1.dead pixel-change the screen, 2.system died, changed motherboard)..

Hi all ...
I am interested in buying this phone, but I see that there are 2 types, an Exynos (which people think is good), and an OMAP (which seems to have the problems).
Is there any way to tell the two apart without opening the box - i.e. before you buy it?
U guys sure will encounter lots of lagging/ hangging pro with G version. NON G version is using Cortex-A9 CPU which able to cop up to 4 core compare to Cortex-A8 max up to dual core for G version. To understand more, look at this:

This is an inferior/sub-standard product that Samsung is pushing into Malaysia and Indian markets because of the unsuspecting public there. There are still charging exorbitant price for this piece of Junk. I bought this phone. It does get heated up very quickly. The total actual space available on this is only 11Gb whereas it is printed as 16Gb on the box. There are slight screen lags because of the underclocked processor. This is sheer discrimination by Samsung to be selling this junk in some countries just because they have to meet demand in other countries. Samsung is definitely headed in the wrong direction by doing this! Not fair.
I'm one of the person who got cheated by assuming I9100. I bought this in Samsung authorized showroom. In the box it was mentioned as I9100 and even in the bill it was mentioned as I9100 and not 'G'. But when I came home and reboot the device I got to know that its I9100G
I'm going to send mail to Samsung. Also I'm thinking to raise complaint against Samsung for this issue?
If anyone would like to join me please reply

Peej, 08 Jan 2012Absolutely fantastic. 10/10. I looked long and hard for a leading smartphone (iphone 4s, Sony... moreNo doubt Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 is a great phone, fast response, nice and clear photo and video captured and playback, but the latest model I9100G (please note, this is G model) always hang, not only i'm having the problem but also a lot of users having the same problem (don't believe me, please scroll down and read all the comments and complaint from other users), if the phone hardware and chipset is causing the problem, i doubt the new coming android OS ICS can solve the hang problem. Samsung, you had built a great phone S2 I9100 in the year 2011, i hope the 9100G will not spoil all the hardwork, please fix the I9100G problem.
Absolutely fantastic. 10/10. I looked long and hard for a leading smartphone (iphone 4s, Sony's Ray and Arc and the S version, HTCs and the Droids) and this kept coming out top on all the Youtube and phone website reviews. The speed is excellent and unflappable no matter how many things are open, downloading, synching. The resolution is fantastic: crisp, bright, fast and responsive screen. The keyboard is both Qwerty and 1-9 traditional and is very intuitive and easy to correct autocorrect (unlike an iPhone). The apps are endless, of course, but the functionality as standard is great - Samsung have thought this through and added integration to email, Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, all sorts and their own hub containing apps and add ons. It synchs seamlessly to a PC via Kies Air (wired or wireless). It is SO light and surprisingly easy to hold and pocket, given how it is a few mm taller and wider than most. The camera and video are very good, with geotagging etc. Plus it links easily to my TV so I am happy as a pig in S**T :D
