Guys, i have actually got this handset, and previously had the iphone 4! i had no hesitations in ditching the iphone 4 as the S2 is easily the best phone on the market right now. the iphone feels more of a premium handset due to build quality, but the S2 beats it on every point, the screen quality, camera, usability, looks and above all the speed, i mean its got a 1.2ghz dual core processor!!! the only thing that is going to take some getting used to is the android markets lack of apps compared to apples app store, but that is an easy compromise.
i would rate this phone 10/10.
buy one and you will not regret it.
OLED display is really amazing thing, but Lifespan and Burn-in effect is essential disadvantages of it. And it is pretty serious disadvantages. Sad because SAMSUNG Galaxy S II is really good device. :(
Couple of retailers said that here in Finland its released MAY 15 or sometime on week 20 .
yours at 599 euro
and from an operator about 450 euro ( still SIM free)
The Galaxy S2 is one of the stupid-phone in the World. Usally The Samsung spread to their money for an exaggerative advertisement. They use electronic components in the Galaxy S2 so that stupid-phone has lots of equipment-faults. In Korea there are lotís of communication blog about consumerís discussion. there is Lotís of Q&A about the Galaxy S2′s faults in every 7 or 9 min. First of all itís miss-design. This phone has a plenty of bugs. Do you really want to buy a hot water pack. The Galaxy S2 can help your hand at cold winter because it generates heat every 20 min.
hehe LOL ;)
This phone is awesome, had it from Mobiles for over a week now..almost faultless. Unbelievably fast. AMOLED is incredible and its the best phone I have ever had the pleasure of owning
Nokia... ur comparing Nokia to GS2... r u crazy it's like comparing Messi to me playing football
hi,I am using now nokia n73 and is the best phone I ever use.this galaxy is better than n73?
guys, i dont feel comfortable with the dimensions of s2. I hope it doesnt become too big and hardly handeld with one hand, any ideas?
I am still waiting for this monster to be release in Malaysia... I have no doubt about its superiority over all other models currently in the market..
AnonD-5557, 08 May 2011yup its built in so no need to worry and its such a fab samsung feature :) thanx paul, its really impresive tech, and belive so its one of the criteria that shifts me to sammy
Samsung is making SE mistakes, release date for UAE??? may 2nd than May 6th, than May 8th then next week...
same for other countries with no exact release date, it's a very good android phone, but i think if they are late the HTC will take some of theire fans when they release the sensation... hurry up samsung
Anonymous, 08 May 2011its good that apple sue samsung, touch wiz is really an iphone replicate well, samsung could sue or maybe just stop selling ICs to apple because all of apple's chipset are made from samsung parts. let's see then what happens. samsung is one of the largest manufacturer of chips and screens. infact apple's lcd are based on samsung. how ironic.
Anonymous, 07 May 2011Hi, anyone know if the face unlock is included in the final release? This is an excellent feat... moreAwesome question. I completely forgot about that feature. I wish I knew the answer to that one.
fadz, 08 May 2011hi, anyone know whats the different between the one with logo Samsung above the display and th... moreThe one WITH the logo is the official final retail version of the phone. The one WITHOUT the logo is one of the test models and was never meant to be sold in retail.
[deleted post]Youre kidding right, iphone4 isnt even comparible to this latest android beast. Dual core, faster processor, superior camera, superior video recording capability, more RAM, more flexible operating system......
Yep you stick to the iphone4 like the rest of the herd lol
