Bloody UK .. Confirmed May 1st release date of the SGSII in the UK -- that equates to October for Canada
I have been following the SGS2 for quite some time now and have become quite impatient to get my hands on this device. As i will be using the phone primarily for HD gaming, watching movies, TV shows, read ebooks and navigating via GPS, i want your opinion about how this device will fare. As far as i know, SGS2 has not performed well in the GPU benchmark tests and it falls someway behind the Nvidia Geforce GPU. Also its Mali 400 GPU lags in the race with powerVR sgx543 and adreno 220 which will be introduced in future phones. Some people are also claiming that the small 1650 mAh battery won't be able to sustain the dual core processor. The original galaxy is also reported to have a GPS bug which i am wary about. So i wanted your opinions about the phone which will suit my needs and whether it is worth waiting for SGS2 and investing money in the same. And also whether there is or will be any phone better than this in the near future. Thank you
As to the Why 1.2 most likely to address the few lag spots it has .. if you watch the LG Optimus 2x vs SGSII vid it did lag in a few spots I am guessing w a 1.2ghz chip that wont happen...to the person who stated it will raise the price just buy the phone YOU want and stop worrying about this one...Still I dont get it -- is it just me or do others think it is plain foolishness to waste your time and go on a phone site you DO NOT like?? I mean do you really think you are going to sway us.. Guys I will be right back I am going to make an ass of myself too and go to the Atrix link and talk about the SGSII...lol
Mninoni, 11 Apr 2011How long before we see screen burn-in and deterioration with this Super AMOLED Plus? 6 months?... moreTo Be Honest that is a concern for me too.... hopefully it washes out in 11 months so we can send it in for fix before the warranty ends if this is the case.

i'm lukin 4ward to buy it
S2, 11 Apr 2011UK Release Date confirmed its 1st May.
http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communicatio... moreok Argos should have this item in but in july 2011 with new catalogue
Tesco.com again sorry don't know when new catalogue comes out HOWEVER, it may be out earlier locked to the tesco mobile network, as in both cases the GALAXY S was in their cataloge
This surely is an increase in price for the SGS2 as if memory serves me correct the GALAXY CAME HANDSET FREE. THESE ALL COME WITH A PRICE WOW.
OFC it's not an iPhone copy. while the specs may be similar, I bet the Samsung will have proper USB support and the Bluetooth can be used for data transfer... :D
yeh yeh!!samsung galaxy s2 will came on 1 may.i waiting so long already so happy.finally world best phone have arrival
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2011Does this phone plays MKV (Blu ray) videos directly? Whether USB on the go feature is confirmed?no i dont thing so because mkv is kind of

irvinehooi, 11 Apr 2011Hi, as per my knowledge Samsung is very famous in restricting such function to works in their ... moreCall recording was disallowed in non-nokia s60 as nokia did not give samsung or SE the components required. With android you won't have such issues.
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2011Does this phone plays MKV (Blu ray) videos directly? Whether USB on the go feature is confirmed?yes MKV format can able to play
Hi, as per my knowledge Samsung is very famous in restricting such function to works in their mobile phone. Such as my last Samsung INNOV8 also having to face such restriction (regardless whether installed any 3rd party recording app or not, because Samsung is restrict it in the firmware level) where other Nokia Symbian based phone doesn't have such issue / restriction at all.
So actually I need someone to confirm whether such "Call Recording" (Conversation Recording) function / feature is restricted on Galaxy S2 or not.
I don't see why they added a 1.2GHz dual-core instead of the originally planned 1GHz dual-core. The only thing the new processor is going to do is boost the price of the phone and drain the battery quicker.
I think I'll stick and wait for the Xperia Pro. It's still fast enough to do pretty much everything and it's half the price of the Galaxy S2. If I was a rich man on the other hand though...
Gitty, 11 Apr 2011what will be the price of this phone ? Plz let me knw and when ll it get released ?575usd
