how are you?
I see your point regarding the battery in android.
I had similar issues, but I don't see a big deal anymore, why? I can charge it almost anywhere, at work I put it on charge, in my car in charge and at home.
I only have issue when I am traveling, then I can't charge it, so my phone should be fully charged in advance.
I have tried to get rid of my n97 after getting the x10 sony, but couldn't. Tried again after getting the bb torch and still can't. I ended up using 3 phones which I really don't need.
Sorry, this is not a phone, not a smartphone, not a tablet ! it's a combination of all of them, but none of them; 4,3" is too big to care it with you every day, battery will last 1 day, the screen is too small if you want to spend reading documentation ...etc ...
Yes, it incorporates everything, but it should have limit to a decent 3" inches, already tooo big, you can use it to play tennis table, and already too thin, what is the purpose of being so thin, battery is required for a decent use to last 2-3 days as for regular use !
Design has nothing special, remember HTC Desire ?! it really has a nice design, this one is so ...
In reference to 4.3 inches being to big. I deal wih larger equipment than that on an everyday basis and I have no problems :)----3

no matter how tempting might android looks but at the end of it if u cant use it for even one day without being scared of battery dyin8 on u...B4 u get back home from work...whats the pont !!!
i had moto milestone,galaxy-I and dell streak but after using N8(my only second nokia device after N-gage !!!)i can surely compare the battery life of symbi and android...and i assure u i have never seen a smartphone like N8...surviving almost 3 days of heavy to madr8 use !!!
i bet...no android can do that.but then again if u leave this battery point aside android is way ahead than symbi in every department !!!
at the end of it...all comes to ur need rather than whos better and whos not,ri8...cheers :-)
this is the complete oscar winner phone.she doesnot need any nomination...just wiinneerr.....does it alll

The problem in USA are your local networks.
As you have branded variants of the galaxy S, Don't wait for support from samsung but from your local network.
The original galaxy S had a good support not perfect thoough), it's on 2.2.1 since a long time and according to some rumors it will receive the 2.3 soon.
Next time , buy an unbranded phone and you'll get all the updates in time :)
briadz, 22 Feb 2011Just an observation: Samsung phones are getting bigger and bigger...lolsIt is not only Samsung, but even others are going for bigger size. Since we now use our phone for browsing/mail/watching movies/GPS etc, the bigger size make sense too. Here is a comparison and you will see hardly any difference among brands:
Samsung Galaxy s II : 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5 mm
Motorola Atrix 4G : 117.8 x 63.5 x 10.1 mm
LG Optimus 3D : 128.8 x 68 x 11.9 mm
Sony Ericsson Arc : 125 x 63 x 8.7 mm
HTC Incredible S : 120 x 64 x 11.7 mm
Hi all, £500 pre order for the Motorola Atrix 4G alone SIM Free on kingofgadgets(dot)co(dot)uk. To covert this into Rupees, US/Canadian dollars, Yen, Euros etc, just convert £500 into your local currency. Samsung Galaxy S2 is my first choice. On the same website, it is £589 SIM free pre order so a £89 more. I currently have an Iphone 4 which I got in early December and will NOT be going for Iphone 5 regardless of the specs it may have. I am returning back to Android. Prior to me Iphone, I had a HTC Desire. Thanks.

ahhhh when is it coming out...need to change my nexus one and hd7 btw wp7 is a great os but i like android more :p
Samsung does not support their phones. I have the Samsung Fascinate from Verizon, still no Froyo, and they are releasing phones with gingerbread on them now. Whatever you do, stay away from Samsung. Stick with a company that doesn't abandon their phone as soon as it is released. The only real update I have received from samsung is a fix for the GPS so now that is useable. It was nice of them to sell me a phone that takes literally 10 -15 minutes to get a signal lock on gps before I can use it. Stick with HTC or Motorola their phones work when they ship them out and if not they update them quickly.
