i think it is great that they are giving this phone updates. iv'e had three updates in two weeks and one camera update, good work samsung. amazing phone so fast but battery life isn't the greatest but i can live with charging it everynight.
AnonD-5637, 26 May 2011Well congrats on your new phone.. Dont worry thats not a hard ware problem. its just a softwar... moreThe problem is that this update does not seem to really fix the camera issue? I have read some discussions, where other Samsung customers state the same stuff. :(
I hope that Samsung does something (effective) because I like the phone, but I would have to switch, if the problem is not solved.
P.S. I would suggest the rest of the people to wait at least for a couple of weeks, before buying. Could be a problematic batch that I am dealing with.
P.P.S I am in the Netherlands, so I would like to know where are the people with NO camera bugs from (if there are any).
Great I got mine yesterday in Thailand and it is working great and love it. Works smooth and it looks more advance than my iPhone 4. Feels great in hand and download time very fast as my iPhone or old Samsung Galaxy S I use to owen.
I owen Like I said my iPhone and Since could not find the Galaxy S2 I did buy LG 2X few weeks ago I do also owen my BB 9780. I would rate Galaxy first before my iPhone 4. Compare the LCD screen between the two device no comparable. Galaxy S2 by far better and sharper. It is 4.3 inch display which i was worry about but holding it no feel that wide and big. But i would rather phone be little heavier but stronger package than Galaxy S2. The iPhone 4 and LG 2X packaging much better, even though Galaxy S2 feels great.

Dont worry thats not a hard ware problem. its just a software problem and samsung has already released a firmware update to fix few o such glitches.. Check this link out, u ll find your answers
Just got mine, incredible phone, but one point. I was using HTC Desire HD, and one thing i realize on the s2 is the signal as not so strong like desire hd. I think HTC phones has the strongest signal. But anyway, S2 is the top of the phones at the time. Very satisfied with mine.
I have one more item to moan about..
Google want cloud based features/apps what ever you call it but we need something for that to work.All the countrys need a good fast reliable network and besides South Korea and Japan the speeds are awful and variable beyond belief.
I get a 3.5g or H signal where i am but that is no indicator of up or down speeds,it means nothing.In the end the smartphone will be faster than a hman can operate it so humans will be a limiting factor"BUT" overall its the networks that will let us down.

In fact, I have been sending some e-mails to Samsung nl, but even they could not give me a definite answer. For this reason I decided not to wait and just bought one today (a non-NFC version). Unfortunately, there is an issue with its camera - some pink/yellow spots appear when I take white-background pictures!!! :( I have looked on Internet and to my regret, I saw that I am not the only one. :( I wonder if there is anyone here, who has this problem, as well. And what is more important - does somebody know whether it's a software or hardware problem? Last but not least, is there a fix for that?
mrn, 26 May 2011Everything is ok except display res.... Samsung can built higher res...display like iphone4 64... moreWith Samsung using 3 subpixels and the amount of luminence 480 x 800 is about the biggest pixel count they can squeeze into a 4.3 inch display,,
Hey bigger pixel count or super AMOLED plus display?
Super AMOLED display hell yeh..I cant even see any pixels although the sgs did have the pentile matrix display giving it a pixelly look.
I think you should go for another fone instead of this powerhouse with 1 GB of RAM ..
My laptop in may 2009 had 80 GB hard-drive 512MB ram and 1.6 GHZ proccessor.Now 2 years later this beats it and RAM is more important than proccessor speed for running smoothness mostly at smartphone levels.

First samSUNg.com Netherlands is displaying this @ 8.49mm the NON NFC size.
BUT..there is this,
Just based on geography I don't see how some European coUNtrieS can get it and others can't, with the "open borders"
The articles does not give a difinitive yes or no but with the reversal in UK, nothing appears set in stone.
Hope it helps

Everything is ok except display res.... Samsung can built higher res...display like iphone4 640*960 or more higher ,
They're make 4.3 inch Display, but res...ony 480*800 not good.

Now the above are important to me so another HTC smartfone is out of the question till they change their components.
dont trust those specfic in that site they never show the rite info look at the network tab they given hspa+21mbs (up) and 5.4mbs (dw) actually its hspa+21mbs (dw) and 5.4mbs (up..... they do all this silly mistakes and its not the first time they doing this....
perhaps the reason why they enlarge its thickness because on the gsmarena review main disadvantages is "super slim body". now the 11.5mm has better gripping when taking pics, etc. than the 8.5mm.
Apart from thickness difference of 11.5 mm, even width and height are different. More thickness and less width & height. I guess Indian version is different. I pre ordered on letsbuy.com. They said first week June, now Second week. Dont know the price of 32830 with free case, screen guard, car charger and HD cable is high or what. But I would prefer non-NFC version, to maintain 8.5 mm thickness, which they say SGS2 's main physical attribute. Other specs are just dream come true. It has all features, no competition at all. Only benefit in my current e72 is qwerty typing...
luis, 26 May 2011when is galaxy S II coming to philippines?they say,this june but no exact date.
check this site its samsung main site(india) it is showing that its thickness is 8.49 mm guys relax cause main site wont lie
