McNeal, 29 Apr 2011Hi all, I have a few questions on my mind regarding SGSII as im going to buy it: 1. when... moreHi, in the shop in Belgium where I buy my mobiles (they are first from al the shops in Antwerp) they hope to sell it the 20th of may and they are all unlocked there.
Andrew, 29 Apr 2011Thanks Kyle but I will upload mine nonetheless and compare it to the iPhone4. Unfortunately... moreKyle or Andrew watched unboxing video thanks, noticed no HMDI cable or MHL adapter, what does the manual have to say on that thanks, @ gadget enthuiast partial answer I hope don't know but it must depend if your region uses this technology. I do know that it appears IP5 will NOT be getting this at all, 'search' news articles Gsmarena for this story, or if the 'HAVES' can tell us what variety the uk recieved
when u bye tis fone it is already mentoined weater it is having 1.2 ghz.ihat see the box smaller than orignal galaxy s going to bye it within 2 weeks
Where can I buy it in London? I'm going there in 2 weeks and would like to get this phone (unlocked) to use it in Belgium.
Why the VOTING RESULTS of this great phone is lower then Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc ?
Can anyone tell me how to verify before buying if a particular Galaxy S2 has built in NFC chip? Will it say on the box? usually sellers have sealed package.Do I have to remove the battery cover for physical evidence or literally measure the thickness? Also, how to verify the variants of LCD/AMOLED and CPUs?
I'll greatly appreciate if anyone has any info on this, it's my major concern. I hate it when I pay top dollars and find that my boss or colleague has the same phone with better cpu and extra feature.
Cheers in advance.
RONALD, 29 Apr 2011Why the VOTING RESULTS of this great phone is lower then Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc ?because some se fans keeps on voting 10/10 for se phone. Thats why arc scores higher than S2
So i got my GS2 yesterday and have pretty much spent all night playing with it, the screen is HUGE but looks great, its so vibrant! So far it has surpassed all the expectations i had for it, and they were very high to begin with! At this point i am one happy chappy, thanks samsung for creating a masterpiece :)
Thanks Kyle but I will upload mine nonetheless and compare it to the iPhone4.
Unfortunately mine is locked and had to pay £400. I had ample time to play with GS2 and had no issues, I even downloaded a few games and there is absolutely no lag and the gps works perfectly. I however discovered you can mute all sound by turning the phone face down!!! The one available in the UK boasts with Exynos chip and the SAMOLED Plus display if anyone was wondering.
@Smat @Bing Google
I have left another reply but it has not yet been posted but it explained some things.I am with o2 and voda was the jist of things.
Andrew someone beat you too it.
philm, 29 Apr 2011It will cost about a tenner to get it unlocked.I have had many o2 fones and some are locked so... moreThank u philm and Bing Google for clarifying the O2 situation with locked Galaxy s2, I will pay the extra and get mine sim free as still under contract with Vodafone. Hopefully most of the stores like carphone warehouse will have the stock after bank holidays. Cheers

Over at modaco is were all the unlocking is done i have never had a fone unlocked i dont think.I had sgs on o2 and was using darkys custom roms BUT the o2 lock stayed in place.I do have vodafone three and t-mobile sims lying around with a few quid on for test purposes.I should get mine wednesday i suppose as monday is bank holoiday here in uk.

Events change then revert timed @ 12:34 Friday 29042011. re 02 only, per 02 and confirmed only available online NOT in stores. It is locked to O2 £400 & £10 top up payg, delivery ? Networks price their phone keenly in order to attract customers, priced well under 'pre-order' price.You have to switch to O2 as this is a premium phone and is locked for that very purpose. I expect ALL the networks will lock their I9100. Fyi the I9000 Galaxy only became unlockable 2 months ago 8 months after release, whether or not the SGSII will EVER be unlocked only time will tell. There are also 2 other factors to consider any 'network branding' STAYS, ie shortcuts put in GNDN Go Nowhere Do Nothing after, You will find any 'alterations' may render the warranty void ANY problems, even non related, you pay tampering!
