The low res and annoying battery made me leave it for Atrix. SGS2 looks good on benchmarks due to it's low res screen (same as LG optimus 2x), but basically, even the Atrix is a better choice. Same goes for this one.
I'm getting this asap.
And people who like iPhone. . . Get over the hype. It's a weak phone at a high price with a easy-to-break design. It looks cheap shit and feels just the same.
i think it is a good phone but its hardware is just downwards than the galaxy s2
Un-replaceable battery is definitely a dealbreaker. I had to carry around an external backup battery chager for iphone4. Not a pleasant experience i tell you.
[deleted post]Ya i agree with you... Here in India we can almost buy 2 SGS2 for the price of one iphone 4s...C'mon apple...Really???
sgs2 is still a BEAST even if someone tries to threaten him, until a quadcore phone will arrive this is still the phone 2 beat in a dual core world.. will definitely buy the sgs2 this christmas rather than the hefty price of moto droid razr, it make look great on outside but in the inside, sgs2 still a BEAST!!!!
would've bought it instead of sgs2 if it was released months back. (only because i loved my previous Razr & Milestones)
now, its just don't have enough to justify upgrade from sgs2.
sgs2 have strong flixible chep and very light back cover which allows the user to hotswap the sim and replace the battery with another back battery easily ,it also gives superb grip,chances are less but even if u damage back cover u can replace with new one without affecting ur pocket a lot all this points are very practical and justifies the name SMART PHONE . I am not a moto a hater.but micro sim tray difficult to open like nokia n9 and all the above mention things are not there in it so for me its a dealbreaker .
And also i know i should hate Samsung as a company but its just makes to good products . Best quality /features/price
You simply cant ignore that fact , and that fact is what drives the sales. Apple deliver awesome laptops , but thats about it.
HTC make great design phones and awesome usability with sence. But hardware is just to low and low quality.
Motorola is innovative in materials used but hardware always outdated and always buggy.
Sharp makes awesome phones but low in numbers and poor availability.
LG makes ... well lg just competes with samsung and always ends up making crappy anything
Sony ericson phones have awesome design but not so stellar hardware specs. And the build quality and materials are horrible
Nokia also poor build quality but depends on region. Because it had factories in almost every country , that quality someplaces was shity. Here in romania , peeling paint , dust under the display , squeaks. In even the most xpensive handsets.

I do like the RAZR but it has to many bugs atm . Hopefully ICS will fix most of those . Till then S II and Note still the best.
I think you should retry the audio test quality with another unit... those results are quite strange, you probably have got a defective phone
though 8 months old, SGS2 still holds its ground against razr...Hoping Only if it had better aesthetics and built...
even with the little drawbacks,I stil consider it the best smartphone ever
SoulMaster, 29 Nov 2011Is it possible that this phone almost the best music phone because it doesn't has built-in FM ... moreHow crap u compare music with one FM Feature? Music is about beats and the quality of output may be through head phones or speaker phone..
i thing the handling is failed..you feel no comfortable in your hand because its thicker at the top..
Is it possible that this phone almost the best music phone because it doesn't has built-in FM radio like iPhone?
