What a fail comment. impossible right now. A laptop only last 10 hours with a HUGE battery running 1280x800..
SGII is 8.5mm thin!! 2 days is amazing!!
As much as you can say that apple "copied" other designs, which i dont think is true. Well if you belive that, then you must also know that they perfected it and marketed it so that everyone acroos the world will want one, the same effect didnt happen with palm or any company ever since the motorola v60
darkangels6sic6, 18 May 2011Regardless Apple is still just fashionable and a big company of tyranting bullies. And they ar... moreDid you really write what i see...are you serious? lol, iphone doesnt come close to the top, sorry buddy but iphone is at the top, and have been ever since the iphone2g, they sell the most phones and every single company compares there new models with the iphone. So even nokia or samsung fans know that this is true. Although, now samsung have released a beast, and this mobile phone is clearly on top
Bighugstudio, 19 May 2011Funny how they think there is an error in smartbench gaming lol No, mali is just that weak.... moreMali's FPS is capped, and that's why the score is low. There's no errors. Producing more frames than 60 per second is useless.
Warren-G, 19 May 2011All samsung does is copy copy copy. I have a feeling samsung invented copy and paste. You can ... moreOk so you think apple doesn't copy. Let's quit all the noise about samsung copying, if they do apple will win the case which I don't think will happen. Yes apple came out with a better way to use touchscreens but that doesn't make them first. I feel they copies palm with the grid and which the grid has been done by samsung before apple even came out. The only thing I can say about apple is that they are the device and software manufacturer which makes it easy to fix, besides they only have one phone which also makes it easy to have less issues. Android should have picked a manufacturer to produce their phone and kept it away from others while the only thing they would have had would be open source.
marat, 19 May 2011I think the time has come for a nuclear battery. full stop.which would last at least 100 years.

why are they bullies? you buy what you want if you dont
like it you can always change and get another phone.
I am now using a Android phone which i love.
one of the reason that Apple works is because they have
an eco system that works. And some people dont want to
go hunting high and low for apps and music, yes i agree the
We have the Xoom that only has 50 apps to put on it
and was never fully baked when it came to market as well
as being over priced and then we have the Ipad (which i dont care to buy) that has 65,000 apps i believe in the market.
Yes you may think people are silly because they like Apple
and it truth i dont have an interest but one cant deny that
they are organised. Google is geting there
Again with the Droid BS........ c`mon man, you write reviews for a really nice phone website, do a little research about the products you review before you start talking about them....
All samsung does is copy copy copy. I have a feeling samsung invented copy and paste. You can never be the best by stealing from the best. Be innovative.
Funny how they think there is an error in smartbench gaming lol
No, mali is just that weak.
My tegra 2 stock stock can beat those sunspider and browsermark scores.
Where is the nenamark benchmark? Another loss.

I can't believe it - Nokia N9 madness has infiltrated this thread too!
I have to say tho... moreAgreed, Meego is such an unknown in the smartphone world, you cannot comapare it with anything, even the latest Symbian phones. I think that Symbian HAS had a bad rep though purely based on it's comparison with more simplified OS's like Android and iOS recently though. (im not saying Android is simple, it's just more of a pick up and go OS)
The Galaxy has shown what it can do, and impressed, but I think the next iphone will put a dent in its sales IF it arrives. iOS is a joy to use, for the casual smartphone owner (and despite the hate by true phone geeks everywhere)
Labelling an iphone owner as a sheep is very narrow minded in my opinion, but as long as phones like this are available and the iphone and Nokias of this world, I think there is something for everyone these days, and that makes this makes for interesting times.
I can't believe it - Nokia N9 madness has infiltrated this thread too!
I have to say though (again as impartial as possible)
N9 looks nice, but it's far too little and too late for the party...
As I said in the N9 thread...
The problem is that with over 3m GS2 sales already and rising...
and the iphone 5 around the corner...
The N9 is really going to struggle finding a market / identity...
Especially with Meego at the helm..
That's not discounting the fact that Nokia are no doubt preparing to flood the market (and quite rightly so) with Windows phones...
I just don't think Meego will last and who wants to (as a developer or consumer) want to buy something that will be expensive with little future... remember all the apps you pay for on whatever system are transferable - you'd be wasting a lot of money on meego apps that potentially will be axed in the next year or so...
AnonD-1082, 18 May 2011The hardware of the N9 was ready since last summer. Nokia took time to release it because they... moreI'm sorry, but that is mostly not true. Yes it will be a great phone and they probably did take their time to make sure it runs real nice. Which it will run great. The camera if like the n8 or better will take the best cell phone pictures which is definitly bragging rights, but in the end as far as all around epicness, power/performance, and setting the bar....Not going to happen.
This is not hating. Like I said it will be a beautiful phone.. Just not the best or close to it
marat, 18 May 2011yes, I was wrong about the car battery, but I'm 100% right about the smartphone batteriessimple solution to ur battery problem, get one of those extended battery life case. i will stick to 8.5mm with 2 days battery life and you can have 4-5 days on a thicker model. done!
AnonD-5197, 18 May 2011You are clearly delusional, having high hopes with nothing tangible to back up your forecast w... moreThe hardware of the N9 was ready since last summer. Nokia took time to release it because they were perfecting it. When it comes out, it will set the smartphone bar out of its competitor's reach and recreate it in its own image. It will change everything and Samsung will be forced to pull a Samsung and do a cheap copycat of the N9 just like what they did with the iPhone.
To make the battery power be balanced with the any mobile phone is the biggest challenge for any mobile phone company .
i think that the battery technology improvement is slower than the other components for the mobile phones ,, just look and see that still we are using the same battery technology for the last 5 years and only the size has changed
as to my knowledge most of the mobile manufacturers use the lithium ion batteries and only i saw that Sony Ericsson uses the Lithium Polimer batteries and they say that it last longer then the ion batteries (still to be decided by the industry itself, actually its a debatable subject amoung many ..
i have read some articles that claim that they have achieved a faster charging period by just re arranging the lithium ion batteries internal configuration and not the core technology
to be honest io dont find it irritating tio charge my battery every day ones and even twice , unless you are so busy person that you dont have to do so ,,, usually to charge a mobile battery from 0 to full takes i average one or two hours and you can do that daiy when you are relaxing or watching you Tv at night .
i hope that the industry will come out with new concepts to have longer battery lives or even to find method to harness power from the surroundings , , many noew concepts has been introduces lately \
1- to collect power from the wifi signals around us \
2- to convert the speech energy to electrical power and charge the battery as we talk on the phone
3- already one or two models were in the market last year to charge the batteries through solar cells
so you can see above that there are mixtures of ideas and technologies that will emerge in due time and new methids will be introduced.
its not really easy for any manufacturer to find the correect components and balance it with the battery power and mobile size and make it value for money and be sold in the market , just sit down and think about it and you will see its a gret task to do .
to be honest i admire all mobile companies without exception and i love all the systems and approaches ,,, and I wish them all luck and success

And they are to far behind in the mobile world considering they only have four phones out and never once have any of them come close to being top of the line let alone best
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.
