The super Amoled plus alone was enough for my brother to regret buying the Sensation XE instead of the S2. Now that stock ICS looks 100 times better than Sense or any other UI, getting a Samsung and rooting it has become the best option. As for Samsung support, I do agree they were a let down, especially when they decided they won't update the Galaxy ICS but since I will install a custom ROM, this really isn't an issue anymore. As for this phone, I do agree it is currently overpriced but that is due to its recent release. That happens with almost every newly released phone. The phone though is a great mid ranger and it has managed to beat the S2 in some benchmarks. Personally I will wait for its price to drop, otherwise I could save some more money and get the S2. I am certain that this phone will get the ICS so I don't worry much about this aspect.
Guys dont worry about ics update.we can upgrade any android devices to ics unofficially.in internet you can see ics update for galaxy s.it is working.by rooting and installing Custom Roms we can solve it.look at Xperia mini it is getting ics officially then y this phone can update to ics?
No point in buyin this phone until samsung assures an ICS update forit. They are flooding the market with new phones but what about their updates? Only 3 phones(s2, r, note)will b getting ics? Sony has assured ics update for almost all xperia phones..!
the review says that this device use the exynos GPU
I think it use the U8500 SoC's built in mali400 GPU
how and why they will remove a part of the u8500 SoC and implement another similar part from exynos ... seems illogical,right ?
why I'd buy this plastic crap when the asked price in my country ,Saudia Arabia, can get me any flagship model (iphone 4,HTC sensation or Motorola Atrix 2)
the pricing of all recent samsung phones is a big question mark to me
from Galaxy nexus through this shitty g.S Advance to Galaxy R (which is exactly the same price as S2 despite being much less powerful)
in addition to the horrible bada phones which as their name say BAD,but the truth is that they are not only bad but the biggest joke in cellphones history
lots and lots of overpriced similar phones doesn't make any sense to me and emphasize the well known fact that "SAMSUNG SUCKS" and I am really wondering why many people are hardcore fans of this brand ...
so it uses NovaThor U8500 SoC:http://www.stericsson.com/press_releases/Samsung_galaxy_U8500.jsp
is there GPU and LPU in this phone which is much better this or the galaxy W
Dude, 07 Mar 2012Dude, just add 2K and you can get the S2.Personally I prefer this over the s2, thnx for the advice though.
ATRIx 2 seems better if s advance priced around 22-23k,atrix 2 cost only 22k in flipkart.
is it better than the motorola atrix 2 atrix 2 has 8 mega pixel camera with flash s advance has 5. both have almost same prices . which one is better ?
Really very fine phone, hopefully will be updated to ICS. However its price will determine the future of many devices. If price higher people will go for GS2, if launched at lower price galaxy R, galaxy W, Wave 3 will be badly effected.
