I've had the S2 (i9100) and now the Nexus. Out of the 2 i prefer the S2. I knew wat i was getting into esp. w. the camera being a 5 mega pixel on the nexus but I have to dare say the s2 beats nexus in a far margin because of the 8 mega pixel camera. The nexus takes great pics. w. the flash on even though the pics comes out a lil. yellowish. As for multitasking, nexus wins. As of easy to get to different switch on/off toggles, s2 wins. I miss the toggles so bad. Other things I dont like about the nexus is, the phone will black out and freeze on you, then you gotta pull the battery, it gets a lil slow and laggy, browser crashes every damn minute, cant upload files and pics from browser, s2 i know i could have. Volume eats ass. It suxs. Even with Volume+ it will work one time the next minute it wont. Battery is equal to s2. s2 comes w. several samsung apps that I luved like samsung hub, the folder app. etc.. Nexus you have to download 3rd party alternatives which don't work as well as samsungs own. Facebook sync don't work, smh.. I luved the way on the s2 when u set a wallpaper it covers the whole pic, nexus it can only cover a 3rd of the pic, making ur wallpaper zoomed in. Look list goes on. If the s2 i9100 was compatible w. t-mobile i would have kept it. in addition when the s2 gets ics very soon it will perform even better on top of touch wiz. I knw tmo has its own s2, but my god their version is too too big, ugly and the colors is not as sharp as the i9100 s2. Anyway, i think if u want ics, get the s2 and wait fo the upgrade that will soon come.
This phone only has 16gb internal memory and you cant get 32gb in the UK no one is selling it. How are you meant to take HD videos and have music with only 16GB? SGS2 all the way.
I have used this for a week and what
I like is:-
face detection,HD screen super clear and crisp,ICS,slim solid body,plays games smoothly no lag,camera not bad but good,touch screen is really good for typing also,
I don't like:-
battery after heavy use stays for one day or less,hard to use with only one hand,lags sometimes,front camera is bad
great phone better than GS2
Dodan20, 17 Jan 2012Hi Joe53, how much do you want for you Galaxy S2?
I work in a mobile phone store and believe-... moreI am planning to sell it for about $400 no problem. I had almost owen any Android Flagship phone from HTC, Motorola, Samsung, google, and LG. This is by far best right behind Motorola RAZR. I do love my Galaxy S2 no problem i hate it for two reason. 1) Battery Life very Bad 2) Auto Correction on Keyboard bad and I am not only one complain between family & Friends.
Can you tell me why you think Galaxy S2 better than Nexus??
So, i bought this phone yesterday and yeah, it's call and all but, when i tried to call other people they can't hear me unless i turn the loudspeak on.. Can anybody tell me what's wrong with it? Even voice command can't hear me. I really like this phone, but with this problem? damn, just damn..
another "aka" name: Galaxy X (in Brazil, because the "Nexus" brand here is owned not by Google, but by a local company)

I work in a mobile phone store and believe-me when i tell you that Galaxy S2 is better than Nexus.
Please please don't buy this phone i have used both nexus S and this one also, its only having HD screen looks like PSP slim screen otherwise there is nothing special camera is bullshit really nokia is better then this lags to much battery is average icon and many other items looks very small Angry birds is too small not comfort in hand.
spark, 15 Jan 2012hi friends, i am in great juncture between galaxy s2 and nexus. Am not so rich to change mobil... moreWe had 3 Galaxy S2 in family i finish sell one already looking to sell the other two all because so happy with our new Nexus for few obvious reason. 1) Battery life by far better, 2) key board and Auto Correction by far better, 3) Also anytime Google has a OS update you will get it automatically update in Google Nexus phone with no waiting. nexus has the latest Android OS Ice Cream which is better, 4) Screen resolution by far much better than Galaxy S2 if you put them side by side
Also quality of package Samsung Nexus much better than Galaxy S2. Galaxy S2 now is old phone and new one Galaxy S3 should be coming out around May.
Had the phone now for 2 weeks, I love it but there are some issues as the recipients of my meeting invites can't see the notes section of the meeting invite.
Battery life is short
and phone has turned itself off 4 times in 10 days needing the removal and re-insertion of the battery.
Would love to know if anyone has found a way around the Notes dilemma in the meeting invites...
hi friends, i am in great juncture between galaxy s2 and nexus. Am not so rich to change mobile even for months. So i gone through lots and lots of forms and found galaxy s2 is better in all the ways than iphone except touch and camera quality. So at last i some how picked galaxy s2 to own.

I couldn find which wood is good. Kindly suggest me friends and please let me know what is the price ofnexus in uae. thanks a lot buddies

piece of crap phone, 12 Jan 2012This phone is the worst phone i have ever had. Cost me $300 and it has so many glitches to it.... morei think that ur phone is just glitchy u should replace it or if not just wait for updates from google soon :)
actualy i think the keyboard is the best iv experienced in a phone and yes and that includes the iphone, its responsive and never hit the letter next to the one i want by accident :)
anyways hope it all sorts out for u :)
