I don't understand why Samsung releases a premier phone like this, however, when it comes to North America, they release 3 different versions of the phone that does not have all the goodies compared to the original galaxy s II. Would be nice if they had an e-store like what Apple does and order the phone off there.

It's not always about putting the biggest battery in a phone. Some things are needed to be sacrificed so that a phone could work properly.

But you would expect a flagship releasing after SGSII would surpass it and if it doesn't, then that would be embarrassing wouldn't it? Now that Nokia knows what SGSII is capable of...
AnonD-5197, 18 May 2011Enlighten us. Carefully explain how N9 is going to take the throne.It will out feature the SGS 2, it's easier to use and the UI will be better than TW4. Just wait for the review of the N9 and you will become a believer.

War is over...
South Korea is leader for microelectronic now...
Prices for laptops and desktops, everyday falling down...
Because, gigants from South Korea play new game;
SMALL, TOUCH, FAST, BRIGHT and Low Cost!

What are You talk about?
N9 NOT exist... And Nokia is OVER!
... moreHahaha, I laughed so hard at you saying that LG is the only competition for Samsung. LOL
LG is by far the worst company on the mobile market, do you think they are great just because they launched a dual-core phone? lol
If you know how easy is to buy a high-end chip and put on a phone with Android... lol
AnonD-1082, 18 May 2011The SGS2 is the second best phone after the Nokia N9 which will be crowned the new smartphone King.Haha... "after"?. :)
What are You talk about?

In future N9 is another joke from Nokia, just like N8 garbage!
SGS II is KING for next year, for sure!
Next better phone is SGS III
Samsung have just ONE real competition... LG!

But you are kind of exagerating...do you know how much a car battery lasts? Less than a couple of hours. The car alternator continuosly charges the battery while using the car...actually you use the car battery only when starting the car and when you use the lights, radio etc...without having the engine started... While running, the car uses the electricity generated by the alternator.
I would definetly choose a single core android (a good single core :P) with a really good battery life over a dual core one.

I didn't said that Symbian is still competitive, nor that it offer better usability than iOS or Android, I think you should read again my last line.
The only reason that iPhone still sells a lot is because it's a fashionable device, because it's from Apple and because Steve Jobs says it's amazingly remarkable. Reality distortion field much? Get real man, people only still buy iPhones because they don't know what other devices has to offer, most of them only buy because of the name, anyone who want a device to be useful, without stupid restrictions and not only a pretty toy, will look for other brands.
Lol I didn't "generalize" anything. I never said that most people rather phones like N8 than iOS or Android phones, could you please point me the line that I supposedly said that? :)

they are so eager to create the worls thinest smartphone it doesn make sense. why dont create the worlds longest lasting smartphone in therms of battery life.
u r right new phones must do much more rather than only calling and texting. but thats not an excucse. have u seen how huge is S2 ??? its enormous. if it was 9,49 instead of 8,49 mm they could fill in that space with an extra batt.
i speachless how stupid those producers can be.
and i dont get your point about going home and having a rest!!! if u r having a rest does it automatically means the phone has to have a rest in terms of being charged??? then we can apply this to anything - to the car battery (imagine charging it every night beceuse our presious needs a rest and tender, love and care). this sucks.
i dont see any excuses for the smartphones to last barely a day or barely 2 days in case of s2 (and thats not a heavy usage)

I mean, to ask for 4-5days battery life under heavy usage is just too much. For me, a standard day's use is acceptable. It's already a bonus to have 2 days use and most reviews of SGS did say its battery is better than most smartphones, even last 2 days. Afterall, most of us do go home to take some rest, phones do too, they need to recharge. Point is we want our phones to do so much more than what a phone used to do (call and text), now we expect it to surf as fast as possible, play games, watch movies, etc, i think its just fair that the batteries are draining so fast, but i agree it shd not go below a day's use cause most of us dont carry chargers. I dont think it being thin has anything to do with battery (not sure though), but they did do address the battery issue of original sgs and wave. so its an upgrade.

Calling iPhone fashionable. Comeon Apple is the single force dat destroyed Nokia's dominance. If symbian was so great, then people would have always bought it more than any other brands. Its all about competition and Nokia has failed miserably, despite their size.
Bottom line is Nokia is out of competition now and along with it, also Symbian. The fight of the smartphones is now between Android and iOS. Please dont try to include Nokia into this fight. They are already gone and knocked out of the game.
Also dont generalize ur preference. U maybe happy with Nokia N8 but there are other tons of people who are happier on iOS and Android.
