SG2 User, 19 Mar 2012I am a very disappointed SG2 user. I won't buy any samsung product again. There's no support. ... moreI couldn't agree more with you!
I too have a S2 had it when it first came out, loved it and still do, however build quality isn't the best and I strive for better, that's why I have pre-ordered the HTC One X!
HTC's build quality and software IMO is better than Samsungs, I have been running CM9 since the experimental build came out for it and it's turned it into a much better handset, even with an alpha release.
If Samsung were bringing out the S3 at same time then I would consider it, but I prefer build quality as had the iPhone 4 last year and Apple's build quality is second to none!
Saying that I'm glad that these manufactures have started challenging Apple and build better phones!
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2012i swear on my mom that i had a sgs2 for 2 weeks. the back cover was so bad and cheap that beco... moreStop these bad lies
SGS2 is way better than N9 in every aspect i own it now and yes the battery door is thin plastic but i do not mind since everybody uses leather case and plastic is much better because its lighter and doesn't conduct electronic ions and isolates heat from dual processor
People bashing the SGS2 have never used it surely? I've found the build quality to be just fine and it makes the phone lighter using plastic and glass together (all your phones should be in cases anyway seeing as you pay so much for them) The back cover is thin for a reason, and easily replacable but there's no need to keep swapping the battery. The screen is awesome, and while I prefer the Retina display, is big enough to show that Apple need to make theirs larger too.
i have an s2 and waiting for the s3... i just wish that they do not leave anything for the critics to point to... s2 had a great body seeing that it is light and sturdy but it is cheap looking... i just wish they make a more solid looking body as their hardware is always great...and i would want a video playback time of atleast 10 hours...and please better audio this time... fingers crossed
Yeah all that speed and that cores on this phones...than i want winXp or seven on it, so i'm sure i have everything with me...,otherwise this kind of droids & aples can't do much with it more than playing games and few call's...that can do even typical phone....i mean nothing atracts me on apple&android OS.
damn technologies, so all we need now is a real computing platform like Windows 7/8 and Leopard on a phone..
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2012A quad core to play Angry birds will be useful for you indeed. Some people play angry birds, while operating an ssh tunnel and hosting ftp servers on their phone. :-P
Some even run chrooted debian on their devices.
In such cases a quad core would be great. ;-)

AnonD-397, 19 Mar 2012You are LIAR! You DON'T have SGS2, because, you must know the TRUE! TRUE is, SGS2 is BRILLIA... morei swear on my mom that i had a sgs2 for 2 weeks. the back cover was so bad and cheap that become to be obssessive to me. camera very bad in low light,artificial light. i sold it for 400 euros and i took instead a nokia n9 with 300 euros the 2nd day i gave away my sgs2. this is my opinion, i am obssessed with build quality and camera, and sgs2 was a little far from my standards. i hope sgs3 will be unibody like nokia n9 that i love much more than sgs2
LOL so much fanboyism here...
You know why people HATE Sammy and Apple? Because they make good products - that you can't deny...
I'm not a fan of Apple, but I can appreciate that what they do, they do well, it's not for me, but I get it. It makes me hate them a little that so many people jump on the Apple bandwagon, but, each to their own...
Similarly - you'll find a lot of people hate the Galaxy S series, because they know it's that good...
Anyone who's honestly got one (myself included) and who has tried many different manufacturers (I'm not loyal to any) cannot say that a) it's not the best performer of last year (because it was) - and b) that it didn't change the general public's view of Android (it put Android on the map and made it a real contender to Apple)...
And the thing is, the Galaxy S3 I think will show just how far Android has come and a glimpse at its future... Flagships released this year simply cannot compete with it... Why? Because they have made too many concessions - primarily no radio (HTC) and no expandable memory (HTC and Sony)... Obviously we haven't seen what Moto has to offer this year - I suspect something incredibly good too...
The Galaxy S range is a handset (and I do hope I'm right on this or I'm going to look stupid) that gives you EVERYTHING - radio, expandable memory, 2gb RAM, larger screen, better contrast, 12MP camera, etc. etc. And forget about Touchwiz (which IS rubbish, there's no denying that) because you have ADW Launcher, SPB 3D, Apex, Launcherpro, Launcher7, etc. which get rid of it and turn it into something AMAZING...
Let's see what's announced in a month or so...

ohhhhh quad core confirmed !! what a surprize !? :p imagine samsung g s 3 is dual core :d
[deleted post]Lol power and tech specs is only half the story. You need all that power to do something right? Or do you just carry the list of tech specs to read to people you meet? lol.
Apple still has the best quality apps (for now, I am not saying forever), and as long as Samsung keeps using Android it will be on the losing end:
Windows mobile are also catching up, and will be boosted once the Windows 8 tablets come out.
As far as I can see, there is still a lot to play for.
Given that Exynos 5250 (based on Cortex A15) has been demonstrated during MWC 2012, I was hoping that it can be released in SGS3. It seems like it won't be.

You DON'T have SGS2, because, you must know the TRUE!
TRUE is, SGS2 is BRILLIANT phone ever seen and support for this phone is GREAT (go to XDA and learn).
First time, everyone who take this magic device in the hand, you MUST LOVE it :)
