Subramanya, 12 Jul 2010Dude,
Thanks a lot.
What is your final view on this handset ?
Do you forsee any other han... moreHi there!
My final opinion of this is that it will easily satisfy my needs for the next 18 months (yes - I even went from 12 months to 18 months for this handset)...
Of course there will ALWAYS be a newer, better phone around the corner - that is the nature of mobile phones - but if you never buy one on that premise then you'll never get a new phone! Even the 'hallowed' iphone gets upgraded every year - so at some point you have to draw a line and buy one and then not look at what is coming until your contract is up! (otherwise you'll go mad and think "oooh I should have waited..." or "oh.. I wish it had that feature.."
Yes it could be improved - 512RAM out of the box would have been nice (Froyo will sort that out hopefully)
A thicker (longer lasting battery) could easily have been accommodated - especially considering how thin it is - a few more mm in thickness for an extra day's worth of usage? yes please.
Yes, it would benefit from having xenon (not LED - as you may as well have nothing if LED) - but again totally different design and thickness would ensue...
The day-to-day experience, the screen, the speed the potential power and the ease of use - means that these things listed would only be even more icing on an already nice cake...
For people that say "oooh touch-wiz is rubbish" or "not even widgets" - are talking through their hat...
Samsung's own widgets amount to about 4 (yes, that few) so what it makes you do (something I didn't with HTC) is start to explore android market for different appps and truly customise my phone to how I want it..
As for touchwiz - it's hardly noticeable - it's funkier than HTC Sense (in the way you sweep left / right to call / message someone) and the music / video player is second to none (something I do use as opposed to the camera)
And the camera still knocks seven bells out of HTC's cameras - they were appalling (and still are I believe)
It suits me perfectly. As for the Nokia 72 - isn't that more blackberry-ish? and obviously Symbian - personally not for me - but more orientated towards business I think...
The next big phone? (apart from the backwards iphone 4?) my money's on the Nokia N8... such a shame it doesn't have android on it...
cant connect my phone with Kies or even as mass storage...have reinstalled the Kies but the same problem happened....anyone know what should i do????ß
The phone costed me 29k in chennai. Strongly recommend to buy. Worth each penny tht u shell out. All of a sudden Iphone looks redundant :-)
Plz find my review for the galaxy S.
Ppl,I am from chennai, I bought this phone a week back and have been tweaking around with the gadget.
1)Screen!! I am madly in love with it
2)Amazing video playback capabilities (support of Divx and Xvid)
3)720p video recording rocks(in natural sunlight though)
4)Fantastic touch sensitivity
5)Lightening fast Processor
2)Lack of proper widgets
3)very ok call clarity
4)very ok speakers
6)Only 256 MB RAM usage bcoz of old kernel
7)Basic design (Iphone duplication)
The cons are something tht you can easily live with. The best anderoid phone in the world as on date.

im so excited to have this phone. i have ordered it today and will be getting it 2-3 days from now. i have been looking for a a perfect phone. my criteria includes: design, features, and affordability. and it all fit my requirements. it is just perfect for me. i have had good experience with samsung phones for years, and i am ready to try this galaxy s.
Hi this is nice, but check out the iphone4 first.

not even the asia version of the phone
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2010I'm sorry to say my friend, but the samsung galaxy S2 is probably a fake.. read this site:... moreit is possible that the galaxy s2 will remain a roumor ... however, I have decided to wait for android gingerbread (3.0) ... 2.1 doesn't suite me for the moment and not sure galaxy s will be upgraded to 3.0 ... and update to 2.2 is still not available ...
iels2003, 11 Jul 2010I am not new with smart phones and I can confirm that synchronization with PC is biggest draw... moreThe synchronisation with Kies is really a pain. However I did reinstall Kies and now it works if I connect the phone first to the computer and then start Kies.
Nevertheless, Samsung's customer service is not helpfull at all and they have a lot of room for improvements.
I think this is my 2nd and last mobile phone with the name Samsung.
