gsmarena have previewed this phone again called second encounter
what is new to me is this on page 2
"Underneath the battery cover you can see the microSD card slot, the SIM compartment and the 1650 mAh battery. The microSD card is unfortunately not hot-swappable. Surprisingly, the SIM card is."
why make the simcard hot-swappable? any technally minded have an answer why they have chosen this route
This seems like a great phone; I am hopeful that a version with T-Mobile USA bands become available soon; would be great if it had AT&T and T-Mobile bands like the G2X. However, the main point that I wanted to make is regarding the lack of a dedicated camera button. I prefer buttons, but it doesn't seem too many manufacturers include that in their design (I can only think of Sony Ericsson at the moment). There is an app that will let you choose certain hardware keys to take a picture. The app is called Camera Zoom FX. You can choose the volume up/down button or any other hardware key (except the power button) to take pictures. It also lets you take a picture by just tapping anywhere on the screen. There are PLENTY of other photo options as well. It costs just under $5 in the market. Just thought I'd share...
ive heard this is a ginger bread phone. i love gingerbread men

Marginal differences r not enogh to make me change my mind and there is more on just this list of pros. I have not checked but as I understand it the fingerprint reader shuts you out completely so not even emergency calls which could be problematic. Again Galaxy S2 fan so I don't see this as an alternative choice in my case even though it probably beats 90-95 % of handset released
iphone and nokia seems hard to match up samsung galaxy s2
.truly a computer in ur hand
i have been waiting 2 buy d best smartfone available.im confused between d lg optimus 2x and d samsung galaxy s2.which is a better option 2 wait for.
Hunky, 14 Apr 2011Other advantage of ATRIX over GALAXY SII is its screen resolution. Atrix is 960X540 and not 48... moreI do not think so. Atrix uses pentile pixel that makes less clarity. The odd resolution also makes some apps aligned left&top--not full screen--so the screen would be ugly.

Talking about update Atrix will get Gingerbread too and that not a problem.
But there is other featuring that Atrix have but missing on the Galaxy S2:
* Bionic Fingerprint
* qHD Display
* Battery 1930mAh
* Laptop Dock
* Multi Media Dock
For this Atrix is special although Galaxy S2 have more power.
* Dual core 1.2Ghz
* Super Am display
* 8MP at the back and 2MP front.
* Thin 8mm
For me it is difficult to see the winner late see how both will perform in the market.
BRAVO! Samsung. Very good phone.
FURY, 15 Apr 2011India and UK getting the Exynos 1.2ghz SGSII model.. I am just curious as to why the UK gets t... moreYou know when you need to get the info needed you're tied up. UK may have a smaller number of handsets but we have do have a higher proportion of smartphones users overall and more people % wise with more than one handset. We also have a only 5 'similar' sized networks all of which have HSPDA 3G+. The last article I read on this commented on the fact that the US is catching up but will be a with its sppreciation of smartphones as some carriers are not 3G even 384Kbps. So UK networks are more likely to have this item on contract handset part subsidised whereas US not which means in order to get this purchased sim free. At the time if reading e.g none of the US had 3G video calling, so things may have changed a bit but we in the UK do love our smartphones.

If you have noticed, Samsung engineers very well. They do produce the thinnest and the lightest mobile devices and this is considered designing well. How can the leading company not spend "a lot of time" designing? Plain looks are great in my opinion, it suits the power very well. The extremely thin profile gives you the option to use a case and still keep it thin.
Good designs will obviously show itself again and again. SGSI had a great success and one of the reasons was thin and light design. No doubt they will reuse them over and over again. Samsung did repeat in producing the best hardware specification to be precise. No they did not repeat the specs, they very much doubled the spec they used on Galaxy S. I don't think people will be angry with the power of this phone.
WTF is headphone quality?... They give you nice headphones? I don't even...
You made it clear that you love Sony, but don't come to a Samsung page with half-ass knowledge on mobile devices and expect not to get your insensible comment criticized by people who know what they're talking about. Only makes Sony fans look bad.

It is much more slimmer and has .3 in. more than the Atrix... What do you say them apples...
Is it possible to put different wallpapers for different home screens on android?

Hey frnd samsung phones are packed full of specs.but they forget to spend time on their design.they hav such a bad design.people attracted in gud design.bt sonyericson gave importance to their design.SE is so userfriendly.and people like the camera performance and userinterface and especially the headphone quality.samsung repeats their specs and design again and again.this makes people angry.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S
II NOT COMING TIL
-5 [7 votes]
This doesn’t sound good. I know
good things come to those that
wait, but these are very crucial
times and everyone has been
pushing hard to get the latest
and greatest out in terms of
android phones. According to
some new information the
Samsung Galaxy S II wont see a
launch til at least Q3. This is not
good news, but then again they
are working with all carries and
will probably launch on Verizon,
T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint just
like the first phone. So that
might be part of the delay, that
and building enough CPU’s.
According to Mobilesyrup during
the Nexus S launch event this
morning he had a quick
conversation with Samsung VP
Paul Brennan about the Galaxy S
II we all know and love, I mean
look at its quadrant score.
Brennan mentioned that the
incredibly thin and light device
(meaning the SGSII) was still in
carrier negotiations, and that it
should be released in Canada
sometime in early Q3.
There was no talk about pricing
but we can expect the usual
$199 with new contract here in
the states. Oh, and the last bit of
news is probably the biggest
part for us in the States, and
where this news starts to go
south. VP Brennan stated that
Canada might beat the United
States in releasing this device. So
that means we possibly wont
see the Galaxy S II til Q3 or even
later. I sure hope he is wrong,
for our sakes, and Samsung.
