McArra, 11 Oct 2011My International Galaxy SII scores 917points in Vellamo, is not that much of a difference, is it?Don't know what your point is, you saying the sticks got it wrong and we are equally fast? See my comment several back about benchmarks and don't worry soo much about them they don't measure more than how fast your device can do set routines with that benchmarks code, Doesn't measure actual usage or how another apps code will be handled (the benchmark Nat run better on one device than another (like better on the one they own and use but not yours) again due to many reasons (OS version other installed apps, tweaks, etc.)
John, 12 Oct 2011It seems based on the earlier news articles that version III is coming so why buy this phone a... moreSounds like your friend got one with issues, mind only gets barely warm when overclocked to 1.8GHz and gaming.
I get awesome reception everywhere (I live in an area where we have alot of iron which can mess with reception and yet it still rocks).
Trust me the iPhone 4s only clicks an 800MHz CPU no way it is faster, again leads me to say your friends phone is having problems.
bRain, 12 Oct 2011Because these sharks from T-Mob dont want you to get a FREE acess to radio... You wanna listen... moreOr it sucks anyways, you need headphones with good solid copper wire cause it uses them as the antenna, and if you do try ANY cellphone is going to give feedback on radio spectrum due to the cellular modem (put phone next to a computer speaker (unshielded) or a landline phone (hear it the most when searching for signal). So, kinda pointless, though if you want it root the phone and download the apk and install it in /system/app (may not work with JB due to coding but xda has it for ICS) kills me people don't try Google before assuming things.
xman, 12 Oct 2011disapointing to see the cost listed at $250; Given contract premiums and likely replacement in... moreLoL, if you worry about replacing in 2 years you would be good for another subsidized upgrade and get the better price anyway. Besides, have had my phone little over 2 years (or very close). STILL top notch performance and no want to upgrade (and I am an Android developer who works with the source code and builds my own ROMs from source so I have abused it quite a bit and require the best performance).
Aiman italiano, 17 Oct 2011Hey guys i got my galaxy s2 from tmobile and im getting a lot lower scores everywhere compared... moreIt is highly subjective to even rely on benchmarks they only measure a set action over time which in no way mimics a human using the device or the specific code (some apps are slow due to poor coding so wouldn't matter how fast it was processed if written poorly). Back to you though, those high scores are from tweaks and other tricks (ie a very minimum ROM running for test just to get higher score). If you haven't rooted and studied the INNUMERABLE tweaks you will never out rank a thoroughly tweaked device. Kinda like running on stock ROM feels like walking in sand to me vs a good custom ROM like paranoid android but someone who has always used stock would probably never realise this (stupid touchwiz :-)).
larry, 12 Oct 2011how come you never review real use of the video camera.. try taking a video at your kids music... moreSince this is a totally different model you would need to check the review for international g2. I have had no issues in loud environs with either video or audio recording. Impresses me how well it picks up far away audio. If vids of the kids are soo important maybe invest in a true video camera as this is a smartphone not solely dedicated to video (or test in loud store or return it within the 2 week return after purchase window allowed by all carriers)

Droid is a branding name, I believe almost exclusively ... moreThat's like saying since my name is Michael and I go by my nickname Mike that if someone made a product names Mike I had to stop. only means you can't use it to name your product unless you pay moto. In this reference they are fine to call Android Droid after it is clear what they mean.

Go inside a room and shut off the lights and try ... moreIf yours is bleeding take it back to the store and get a manufacturers replacement warranty. I have 2 and I have seen I think 13 more only 1 out of 15 had the "bleeding" problem. And he took it in and got another.
TxB, 20 Oct 2011Turn your screen down to max low brightness. Go inside a room and shut off the lights and try ... moreMine has zero bleeding. The blacks are incredibly impressive. Best true black I've seen on a smartphone so far. I doubt mine is unique.
It's not a droid. The OS is Android. Droid is a branding name, I believe almost exclusively Motorola. Either way, this is not a Droid. The end.
Lightningtrip, 22 Oct 2011We have root, and are smashing all benchmarks with a few tweaks...xda developers rule
We have root, and are smashing all benchmarks with a few tweaks...
Turn your screen down to max low brightness. Go inside a room and shut off the lights and try to look at a BLACK blank screen and you will notice bleeding, black blotches, and the backlight isn't really sticking to what reviews call "true black" Bleeding and a disturbingly wrong backlight glow plus verticle lines on the screen made me return two units to the Tmobile store. Even the one that the rep had - had screen issues. The display model had it too. Samsung please fix this issue. The T989 was compared to my i9100 in the dark. It's a big pain when watching movies.
Aiman italiano, 17 Oct 2011Hey guys i got my galaxy s2 from tmobile and im getting a lot lower scores everywhere compared... morei got 3100. once. but mine has ranged anywhere from 2100 - 3100 :-/ quite a gap there...
Hey guys i got my galaxy s2 from tmobile and im getting a lot lower scores everywhere compared to what GSMARENA show here for example on Quadrant im getting max 2521 ( Instead of 3100 ), on Vellamo 720 ( Instead of 921 ) i have no idea why anyone have any idea why or maybe the guys in SMARENA can help me here.
Thanks to all and anyone that give an advise.
