damn this phone is perfect !!
i have been an iphone person..... but after watching the reviews of Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II on youtube, damn...... sgs is way too awesome !!
usb on the go is a brilliant feature. i love it, aint waiting for iphone 5, getting sgs 2 ver soon...
pretty expensive in msia, but i guess its worth it!!!
Anonymous, 14 May 2011Agreed that this phone has raw power to handle heavy apps and videos but what abt gaming??? ... morealready the phone is costly and if they had worked harder for the body too, i guess the price would rise to such a level that buying this phone would become a luxury(to some it already is a luxury, dont u think?)..
Greatest review for the greatest phone!
no battery test? suck.
the disadvantages only 3 of them? woooww...

How about 200 billion stars since we're talking about a "galaxy"?
qwerty man, 14 May 2011we need and want a similar model, which also has a side-sliding hardware qwerty keyboard.I agree with you, qwerty-man.
i am currently using a full touchscreen Samsung i9003 Galaxy.
the screen is responsive and comfortable, but still, something' missing.
i prefer the real physical keyboard with real feedback.
i hope Samsung will release Galaxy S2 Pro with real QWERTY keyboard.
This is an amazing phone 360, but someone explain to me why on earth these phone makers think its a good idea to drop a dedicated camera button? We need that to stop, thin is awesome but taking a picture without a hardware key feels really awkward.
very comprehensive review, thanks GSM Arena!
your reviews help me decide which phone should I buy next.
can't wait for the next SGSII review with the battery consumption test.

60 fps on a dual core sucksss... why don't they do it any better? And why don't samsung make their touchwiz any better ??? Touchwiz as usual looks very much cluttered like a 2yr old child's drawing...
And last and not the least design and body material... why would someone want a phone so much pricey with a copied design(even after copying iPhone this phone looks yuck...) and body made of such a cheap material ???
Finally, macro shots are back! Thank you, GSMArena! :)
I heard the gs2 cant play tegra2 optimized games.
Is that true?

guys I like the Sharp aquos sh 12c 3D smartphone that will be out in Japan On May 20. this is awesome phone.. search the phone in google and you'll find out

It has a wrist strap eyelet? FINALLY someone remembered to include it. Take that, 90% of other smartphones (not to mention one with glass on both sides).
oh wait, Apple recently released white version of iPhone 4 to revolutionize the world....again :)
Could GSMArena do a comparison between the standard version of SGS2 and Tegra-2 based SGS2 if you are able to? I would like to see the difference. I heard some Asia countries will be receiving Tegra-2 based SGS2 due to the inability to meet strong demand in short time.
