alex, 14 May 2011is this device GPU(400MP) more powerful than HTC Sensation's GPU (adreno 220)?Quite sure it's not as good, 90% sure there was a V's review posted a month back between the SG2 and the Sensation, CPU was best on the SG2, the GPU on the Sensation was better.
Fiiiinaly got my SG2, my iPants kicked and screamed all the way to Carphone Warehouse for a trade in. I can confirm this is the best phone ever, more buttery then iOS, fast, superb, easy to use, great graphics... The only bad thing is my shirt pocket won't close over it Lolz. And as for the plastic back, it's not that bad, it's firm when it's on the handset, and I finally got the joke about the Yotube video with the flexi plastic... It's not true! Don't bend it! Lmao xD
there are rumors about releasing 4G networks worldwide, which are much faster and cheaper... how do i know if a phone supports 4G network?
Do you upgrade the software over the air with these phones like htc or do you have to connect to computer and go through kies ?

It's like putting a bluray disc in a old school discman and complaining that this new disc isn't working I don't know what could be wrong.. Get with the technology people :))
abhi, 15 May 2011Don't act like as if there is no use of gaming in smartphones.... I can say the same things ... moreExactly! There is always a dedicated machine that runs better for what it's for. That is the point with smart phones. It doesn't always have the best everything, but it has very good everything. There is always something that is dedicated to that one thing and is good, but it's usually just for that like a camera or a computer. And for the past couple years when it came to the Omnia HD and the Galaxy line, Samsung has had the most epic featured, wide ranged phones. The GS2 is the most advanced phone out on the market.
Anonymous, 15 May 2011Who cares about those benchmarks? Only geeks like you cares so much about getting high scores ... moreHAHA! You're funny. Those bench marks show just how powerfull the phone is and that i can do way more than you little n8 ever will. Yes the cam is nice.... If all you want is the best cam then go ahead and stick with that by all means, but if you want a real smartphone with a wide scale range of epic features that still has a very good cam then come back here. HAHAHAHAHA!
I heard that s2 produce much heat than other samrtphones. they said that it's like putting your cheek near an oven... is it true???
HTC sensation is good in its on place. However the aesthetic looks of galaxy s 2 are unmatched compared to the colourful body of HTC sensation. I think both processor are good.

My N8 is still the best camera phone even after 7 months from its launch. If not for the purple screen defect it would have been the best smartphone ever. It's just sad that we are still suffering from this purplegate fiasco. Nokia don't have a fix for it and they don't want to recall the defective N8s. Visit the N8 forums and you'll see people suffering from this defect that ruined Nokia's name.
Anyway, Samsung should enjoy this short lived triumph. The MeeGo N9 will be crowned the best smartphone when it comes out.
the latest review has the following paragraph in page 2
"The bad news is that the MHL adapter required for HD TV-out and the USB adapter enabling the USB host functionality aren’t included. It’s a real pity – both work pretty well but many users will probably not bother purchasing them and won’t get a chance to try them."
does this mean that if i want to connect a USB, i HAVE GOT TO AND MUST AND THERE IS NO WAY OTHER THAN this USB host, or is it just a passive link, that i can replace with a cable (micro USB to female USB)
plz help...this matters to me... nokia n8 says it has "USB on the go" support...
atyarra, 15 May 2011GSM Arena gave the strongest sides of this superb phone, and games comes after all other specs... moreDon't act like as if there is no use of gaming in smartphones....
I can say the same things as u said... Buy a SatNav GPS unit if it's ur concern, it will give u far more better, faster & accurate experience.
If u want 1080p video rec. than u should rather buy a Dedicated HandyCam/camera which will not only provide u much superb video rec. but 60fps recording instead of 30fps and far more superior zooming options than sgs2.
If u want document reading & editing than u should rather open ur laptop/pc which will allow u to even read files upto hundreds of mb and gb and with a 15" or 17" u will be much more comfortable.
There is always a dedicated, bigger and much better option for everything we have in our phones but that doesn't mean that we should neglect those functions in smartphones.

Its a PICNIC problem in your case (Problem In Chair Not In Computer)
GSM Arena gave the strongest sides of this superb phone, and games comes after all other specs, I dont understand people who buy mobiles just for games or just for its appearance;design. Is so satisfying to read the reviews so i did and i will buy this phone for its large screen, 1080p HD record, GPS, Google search, Its document reading facilities,zoom etc, easy to type, in every condition screen is visible and more n more. Games? it could be nice but i rather choose ps3 or something else for games!. perfectness could become with a metal body..

are you saying you can't record more than 4 min with this?
also I am sorry I am not quite following this formats you talking about and the differences,
I will be surprise if you can't simply record (as many minutes as your storage allows you) and play it back in your computer, generally quick time player , plays everything!
