I am using this phone for quite a while. Previously i owned a sony Xperia mini.
The only concern i had with xpria is a small screen but other than that i was totally satisfied with xperia.
I got this in a offer for a very less rate and i am happy with it too..
Few things are to be discussed here.
1. The camera clariy is not as expected. When i press the capture button, it shows me one of the best shot for a second, then while saving the picture i can see that it is not the same. The images are not sharp/crisp.. its kinda little blurry. Also the picture brightness had reduced considerably. I owned K790i long back which had only 3.2MP camera but delivered best pictures ever. Might be i am expecting too much from a mobile camera. I am not sure about the camera clarity in international version of G2 but his one is not as expected.
2. The music player was good. But i did not get an headset in the package so i didn't know about the music quality until i plugged a headphone which i pruchased recently. The sound was loud and convincing until i turned on the 5.1 channel effect. It got horrible. The player is unable to playback. The song is struggling to play... it gave me a feel like the old cassette walkman struggling to play when the battery was low... I never expected this from G2.
Being a Dual core processor, 5.1 shouldn't be an issue but it disappointed me. Other than that i use a bluetooth headset in which the quality is good.
3. The video play back is good. The screen resolution is good. Black appears to be perfect black. In LCD/LED screen we need to see if black looks perfect black. And yes it does have a pure black.
4. The size is very sleek. First few weeks i felt it very much dificult to hold it since the surface is polished and sleek, it can easily slip from my hands. After buying a rubber case, i felt much releved.
5. Batter life considerably improved after updating to ICS.
6. The front camera is not a HD camera, so the skype and GTALK video calls are average quality. If the other person is using a laptop, the resolution is very low due to huge screen size.
7.The processor speed is awesome. I never felt any lag in any application.
8. The back panel looks very cheap. It is made of very thin plastic that you will get cheap feel but front screen gives you a rich look.
9. I felt a little bit difficult in typing compared to in XPERIA. Even though xperia had a small screen, i never missed a Key, but in S2 i missed many keys. I am not sure if the mobile touch is sensing differently. But got used to it later.
10. Overall it is worth a try. It has everything in it but needs a lot of perfections.
can anyone tell me the difference between this phone and the international S2,the GTi9100?

wordlife88, 03 Jul 2012whats the feedback for the ICS .... ??? The interface is good.. Dont know if anyone else experience this. The default music player plays with distortion at times. The app management is better. Battery wise, I haven't seen much of a change. Management of contacts is better. My GPS works better after I upgraded to ICS. Voice commands are better too.
Thats it from my usage.
Varis B., 16 Aug 2012hi guys... Can you help me to prefer galaxy s2 att or sony xperia s please?yah bro i am also confused between these two phones...
To tell the truth... This phone is the first phone that I really love to use until to day... I completely satisfy with my decision buying this. I've been waiting for this to come to ATT since the first day the international came out. Then when this phone was available for ATT I got it the first day. I dropped it a month later then I sold it for a International S2 i9100G... But later I bought another i777 cuz I don't like the home button in the international version.
