Techradar is very positive:
*clears throat* We liked nigh-on EVERYTHING on the Samsung Galaxy S2. It's rare we get to evangelise a handset so much – in fact we haven't managed to do so since we opened the box on the HTC Desire and realised a slick experience could live outside the iPhone.

If you read back you will see that the Iphone 4 is priced above the SGSII. So even if the Iphone 5 had the same specifications as the SGSII do you think that it would be priced the same. Re last paragraph flawed this will be shipping to people as early as tommorow 27/04/11 those who got it in contract from the site which is now removed, I spoke to them myself as you had to enter card details but no info, but this site had a phone order hotline, briefly in that only 3 of the networks are listed. So Samsung are going to call back stock to change the specs, I think not. Apple now have ti compete on specs & price. Do as I do fishing, chess to pass the time. I being good so no Rules Of Acquisition... for now w...a...i...t note even gsmarena have not revied it
AnonD-5637, 26 Apr 2011Exactly. I planned for a white iphone4 in novemeber, but it got delayed.then shifted my focus ... moresame here pal...saw this around jan then at mwc(feb) it did got official tag on it and since then still its been tryin to release only x-( every now and then gsmarena comes up with the new release date for sgs-II...
and the most frustrating thing is that,not a single person from samsung i've contacted has any news on this...bloody hell x-/ this is really being unproffessional samy...
but cnt help it,i cant find any other phone which can replace my galaxy s-i9000.so unwillingly i've to bloody wait for it...no matter how it does get delayed :-(
i wonder weather samsung are waiting for the apple to make any official annoucement about iphone 5 so that they can rectify their SGS-II specs according to it !!!
Please be patient. This baby will drop soon. Believe me it will be worth the wait. By the end of June most of us will be happy. I am based in London, UK so shouldnt have to wait for more than another month. I have saved enough and will be trading in my iphone 4. I can't wait until my iphone 4 is gone. No flash on the internet. How stupid yet I fell into their marketing advertising seduction. Just like all the potential zebras who will fall to the lions when the iphone 5 comes out. Apple are just hype. The did change the market with apps but others have caught up apart from Nokia.
AnonD-570, 26 Apr 2011yup...thats amazing !!! but samsung shd atleast let us know the official release date for Indi... moreExactly. I planned for a white iphone4 in novemeber, but it got delayed.then shifted my focus to HTC desire HD. believe me i went to store 2 times and came back thinking why invest on a phone with so low battery backup. Heard about this phone in Jan and and since then waiting and following it. MWC expo and all those promising videos. it was Q1 then pushed to Q2. Next week we are heading in May. Still no update except the new commercials. Its damn frustrating and irriating to wait more!!
if your not from the uk try these websites to buy the galaxy s2 sim free. plemix.com or expansys.com, i have bought phones from both sites and have never had any problems. they ship worldwide. hope this helps.
FURY, 25 Apr 2011AAAAAAAAAAMEN!! This has to be the longest post on here but makes sense....thanks fury.
[deleted post]That's good for the UK, but we can't buy one at phones4u, cose they don't deliver in Belgium.
Samsung is very bad image for thire battey backup so please alrte for it
TxB, 26 Apr 2011This phone is now released in Vietnam. Hey are u sure!!! when ?? and how much is it!!
AnonD-5637, 25 Apr 2011check this link out!! this phone is way beyond our expectations.. this thing is giving competi... moreyup...thats amazing !!! but samsung shd atleast let us know the official release date for India or for any other country for that matter...coz unless we know the exact time we have to wait then it becomes very difficult to control urself from buying likes of LG optimus 2X or SE xperia arc...they both are very tempting u see and the most importnt thing is they are "AVAILABLE" in the market x-( and when u have money in ur hand u surely feel like buying one !!!
m sure many of u out there must have gone through this !!! and some of u must've fallen for the temptation jst like my few friends did and went with the arc(no doubt arc is awesome but wen it comes to the specs...!!!) :-P
please samsung 'save' ur remainin sgs-II buyers,its becoming dificult day by day since my friend keeps flaunting his SE arc where as i am still stuck with the old sgs i9000(not that m complaining,my sgs running 2.3.3 is still bettr than arc :-P!!!)for the sake of us release it damn8 x-/ the big daddy of androids 'the SGS_II'... 8-/
i love you samsung galaxy s2...but i think its time to let you go. because i lose my patience to wit you, why you are so long to release... im crying because i let you go.. but dont worry i buy one of your relative phone . i take the wave 2, i have it right now, thanks samsung, all your phones are really great and i admire them a lot,,, but dont worry by may or july i will buy you back... see you soon,, i love you
[deleted post]Well for asia it usually would be available 2-4 weeks after release in Europe...So it won't be long..And Of course AP set could be earlier..And for US, rumor said it might be available in Q3 but I'm not quite sure about that :/
Sun, 25 Apr 2011I'm tired of this long wait....by delaying the launch Samsung lost many costumers who went for... moreMaybe you wait but search internet there is no sign of when this Device will come out? Wonder what is the problem? Specification shows the Best Android phone up to this date. Thinking same to buy Sony Arc or LG 2X but Samsung Galaxy S2 could be out anytime but whom knows.
It seems like is for Pre-Sales at eBay and be released in Singapore in April and by May 6th some other country like UK. I wonder why UK is always listed as first country all Phone companies introduce their phones
