Its the same as the I9100 , i dont know why
they did this phone, even the I9100 has super
amoled plus but this is jux super amoled and
it only comes with 8Gig internal memory..poor
thing they did since it was Plus and we are in
2013, i was thinkin something higher
specs..failed..am still using my I9100 s2 on jelly bean 4.1.2 leaked version and its amazing..this is very bad..Samsumg WHY?
I got conned by the whole s plus thing. Thinking it was a new and improved galaxy s. I think Samsung just had a load of spare motherboards, cpus , GPUs and screens left over and mangled them together and called it the s plus. There are alot of reasons why I was dissappointed with this phone but breaking point was the lack of support, no ICS update leaving it running clunky gingerbread. The legends over at XDA gave the plus users ICS in the end but if you go through their forums users were not impressed. This is just IMHO but I will never buy another Sammy product sold as the xyz plus. I agree with the comment that you would be better off saving your cash and sticking with the original S2.
this is absolutely the biggest waste of money and disgrace to Samsung. why would anybody buy it outdated old phone with a small screen. tell me why anybody would buy this over a Nexus
Guys better you buy a used galaxy s2. Android 4.1.2 update is coming this month. This way u can save a lot of bucks. Samsung is trying to make fool of consumers.
ScorpionHD, 10 Jan 2013With No LTE why would anyone consider buying this?Umm, anyone who doesn't CARE about LTE maybe?
As if 80% of all mobile users are using LTE right now anyway...
LTE, NFC and HD screens are all nice to have - but for a vast majority are not really essential or a deal-breaker (like Bluetooth or screen size for instance)
This phone is a plausible buy because is comes with JB out of the box for someone wanting a gs2. But then again it'll probally costs more than original gs2 which is now very cheap and of course you can update it.
Does that mean the first galaxy s2 won't be getting the jellybean treatment? Too bad I have my phone for the last 6 months and I was expecting to have my s2 get the update.
i agree i have a SGSII and i already have this from customs roms..
guys why do u hate plastic?? hmmm
yah the glass-back designs are really awesome
but why wouldnt the samsung design team incorporate it? it is illogical to think that their design team is not genius if sammy is too rich.. in business, the management will always look at the advantages and disadvantages of everything..
for me, i dont like the plastic of samsung, but i should consider everything.
AnonD-69184, 10 Jan 2013That is because Samsung doesn't release a flagship every couple of months like others who are... moreHmm that make sense..
But i have a bad feeling, they are looking at what others are releasing.. and a few days before they launch the product.. they will announce theirs.. cutting profits from other companies.
Hope they compete evenly.

I mean sony released the xperia t 3 or 4 months ago and now they released xperia z.
Mad man, 10 Jan 2013Samsung are now just beating a dead horse. Instead of releasing a newer better phone they real... moreSammy is not too aggressive when it comes to their flagship unlike Sony, HTC and others.. the S-series and Note series are carefully released so not to degrade the handsets of their latest flagship owners.. they are releasing many phones to meet the varying demands of their million customers esp when it comes to affordability..
anyway it is impossible that Sammy has a very dull and unwise mobile team.. every decision they make must have their own advantages
This is very bad news for samsung!
People like sony.. htc .. huawei and zte are releasing their top flagship phones with great specs and 1080p screen..
And yet no news from samsung.. hurry up!
