OK bit the bullit and purchased the phone today from local carphone warehouse store (I'm from UK) sim free, they had only 3 in stock. Had a play with it briefly and its now on charge. What can I say its beautiful, it has chrome/metal edge around it which adds class with solid and compact feel to it and it doesn't feel plasticky in my opinion. Ok the battery cover as everyone says is a pain to get off and on but that is the only disadvantage for me apart from that its all positive. I'm an Android noob (u've got to start somewhere right?) and now I know what all the fuss is about and what I've been missing-Freeedomm! Speaker is very high quality and u won't miss a call with it as its also loud. Very fast in menus and downloading new content from app store, internet is also so blazing fast I can't believe it! I recommend 100%.
is it possible to add different wallpapers for the seven screen. or it can have one only.
AnonD-4466, 03 May 2011Oh yeah then tell your nokia to make a good high end android phone that could last for 2-3 day... moreHe's trolling, but to be honest, android phones don't last 2-3 days with heavy use either.
AnonD-6551, 03 May 2011what is "pure performance" if it wont last 3 months in your hands??
Nokia subject... moreThis isn't 2002 anymore. Current Samsung phones are well built and I'm pretty sure they do stress test their phones.

Samsung Galaxy S2 will be available in India during mid may....
I no many S2 lovers are eagerly waitin for it to get thier hands on this beauty like me.
Waitin is almost over.
yuembeddeengine, 02 May 2011This is because of clever marketing of sony for the Xperia arc has been on many billboards and... morewhat is "pure performance" if it wont last 3 months in your hands??
Nokia subjects its phones to "stress testing" to check if it can endure abuse. I dont see this with Samsung phones-- Samsung makes uber-tech phones, with thin / flimsy back covers, and poor build quality. I am wondering if Samsung "stress-tested" the SGS 2, coz I dont want to spend $900 on a phone that only "lives" 6 months and afterwards, has to be repaired or replaced ;(
Its about time, galaxy s's price should be reduced to below 350 dollars.
Anonymous, 03 May 2011got too tired waiting for the release of this phone so I got Motorola Atrix instead which is j... moreNo luck yet getting mine ,my update staus is "In Progress"..I must urge people to wait and if you cant dont buy arc or atrix the lg optimus is the best bet from tech blogs around the world.
Arc is yesterdays tech.
Motorola atrix has dreaded Motorblur and poor battery.
Obviously i dont care what others buy but just dont jump into buying something else.I think they are struggling to cope with supply of sgs2.

Aisha, 03 May 2011If it's going to be released in UAE then I'll buy it from there.. But is it confirmed that it ... moreWell dear, i don't know about that.I been e-mailing Samsung and that's their reply:
Recently we had been expecting Galaxy S II to be launched this month of
May. However, due to the decision that there will be technical
improvements, the date of release is to be finalized again.
Rest assured it will be available soon. Thank you.
