A phones success not only lies on the specifications but also on the correct pricing....at the end of the day its about the bang for the buck.....the reduction in costs only depends upon the phones success in market(ex.nokia 5800 exp music)...but now a days the manufactures don give enuf time for a product to be fully tested and certified as succesful...they just keep pushin forward with new technology and don support the already sold ones(generally discontinued),which results in absurd pricing of the every new lauch(to subsidise the r&d)....this goes to all the brands....i shud appreciate nokia for this reason..since they are reliable(less symbian :( ...)....with this trend v shud expect a smart phone of the future(say quad core/12 mp/3d/4g/blah/blah) would be costing nothing less than 1500 $/1000 pounds/70000 INR.....does any 1 agree with me or am i the only one feeling this??...........:(
abhi, 16 Feb 2011Again samsung has been able to lure customers into it's trap.
People will buy galaxy S II but... moreMan, you are so right. 2 years ago my Omnia2 was the Flagship WM phone but Samsung did nothing, no support no support, I ended up using Custom Rom.
I got a feeling I will end up getting Optimus3D.
Another thing, TI OMAP ROCKSSS!!!

David, London, UK, 16 Feb 2011Hi all,
Apart from youtube, to see numerous large indepth photographs of this wonderful pei... moreLG Optimus 3D P920 has a JAVA!
Also Motorola Atrix has JAVA, but unfortunately Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II only via third party applications.
Pepe, 16 Feb 2011Which is best?
http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=3621&idPhone2=3708Pepe, tell me which best camera phone to make best quality photo, then I will tell you which phone are best.
And in case have a look here, even specification can be wrong and I expecting even better:
HTC Desire HD2 - ( http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_desire_hd2-3775.php )
Just question again how excellent photos we can make with HTC Desire HD2, or HTC already improve they own phone camera lens quality.
cannot wait any longer for this device. samsung has really evolved in recent time. hope they hold their place in the market in the long run.
Pepe, 16 Feb 2011Which is best?
http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=3621&idPhone2=3708Pepe, you must ask which best from these?
But I already told which are the KING of ALL, and who the KING's WIFE ;)
My next phone after Galaxy is the successor!
To bad doesn't come with HDMI output. Only Tegra2 chip able to do that. Not sure GT-I9100 or GT-I9103. Which one the best.
Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II it's KING all of the smart phones.
LG Optimus 3D P920 it's KING wife.
So we must wait other heavy fighter prince HTC Desire HD2.
Samsung Galaxy S 2 has HDMI output !!!
Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)
New standard first used in the Samsung Galaxy S2 to output HDMI and charge at the same time through the Micro-USB connector, it also allows for some data to be sent back from HDMI such as using the TVs standard remote control to also remote control the device.
Samsung Galaxy S 2 is simply the best phone.
Mobilemaster, 16 Feb 2011Hi my friend! I am really glad that you are honest. You are NOT a fanatic fan. :) By the way t... morewhoaw, a fanatic fan! mate, its better if we brag about the phone's ratings and not its popularity. iphone4 was popular but ratings were next to sh*t. being popular doesn't mean its the best. im not saying this phone's ratings are bad. im just saying there are other phones which have higher ratings even if they are not as popular. peace...
btw, samsung's website in my country isn't updated yet so i can't see the specs straight from them. anyone who knows a samsung site that has specs for sgs2?
royal flush, 16 Feb 2011re video call. The information is from the SG1 manual The SG1 has 3G video call whereas the IP... moreits good that you based your assumption with your experience in galaxy s however, the presentations themselves in mobile world congress 2011 say that this phone's front camera is for video chat as well. like sony ericsson's new xperia line up and apple's iphone4. no one ever said that this will be used for 3g video calling. im not sure with motorola's and lg's but at the moment, only the new htc phones confirmed their front cam can make 3g video calls. i hope this will get updated soon. i don't want to use the front camera for when im near wifi hotspot only.
[deleted post]How so? It's basically got the most advanced features all in one. What is so shitty about about it? That it's got the best mobile gpu, that it's got the best looking type of screen technology available, or that is pretty much the slimmest smart phone out there? We would love to know and also what is so much better?
This is the phone of dream period! It would be even better if it has 3D capabilities and the fastest CPU out there. It should also have image stabilization for video recording. I can't wait to buy it!
