Are you sure Samsung is Iphone copycat or the other way round?
Samsung non-andriod phones already has such similar design years ago. Now because of iphone 4 is famous and only known by you now (who is really a frog underneath the well).
Do more research and comment. Eventually, this design is very common since the booming of touch screen phone era.
The question should be whether the design is user friendly and specs meet our needs or not? or comparing who copy who.
Don't know why ppl wanna to argue on the design... or just want to join the fun of comment.
No offense and cheers... please nego this comment if you don't like it.
I've been always a Samsung fan, this Galaxy S II's hardware is topnotch, but I hate the front design so much, the back and sides are good, why didn't they make some design like the Wave? I love the Wave's design. However, I will definitely buy this phone anyway, hope they'll start selling it soon
This must be a trump for Samsung Galaxy S II fans because it reaches 92% of daily interest. I hope it doesn't be the same like the Motorola ATRIX and Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc wherein lasts its top daily interest for only a week or two.
Wew, this phone is a beast!

Want to ask you guys a serious question, so, apple fanboy, get lost first.
Samsung vs LG, which brand provides better updates for the Android OS based on their previous Android phones?
Very nice specifications. This phone will definitely come up trumps on the smartphone market. Watch out, iPhone 4.
Bryan, 15 Feb 2011Galaxay S 1 was very laggy and had stopped being supported by Samsung. Also Kies was a pain to... moreConfigure Keis to be somewhat more usable whereas the phone being laggy.. use the task manager, delete useless performance heavy useless apps, never had a lag issue with my galaxy s
Damn this is the phone I always wanted to have. light weight, pro features, wow amazing but one thing pissed me off it's look iphon 4. look hate that. Apart beautiful. It's time to sell my HTC Desire HD. :(
The new Galaxy S 2 looks good, and I wonder what sar values it has. The first Galaxy S had low sar values.
is it true that samsung galaxy s ii has mono speaker?
maybe mono sound is on this prototype... thx
don't know if you have notice something WEIRD with this handset but the OUTGOING speaker is located at the LEFT HAND SIDE BACK BOTTOM part of the mobile phone :s viewing from the back.Hope this will not have any effect on the outgoing sound QUALITY.
It doesn't have an HDMI port because it has a MHL port, which means it provides a lot of functionality from a single connector.
"Samsung Galaxy S2 has a MHL (Multimedia High-definition Link) connector, which basically allows the Micro-USB to do much more than just be a Micro-USB connector, it can for example output 1080p with a Micro-USB to HDMI cable, it can do USB host stuff such as USB keyboards, which basically means, if Samsung wants, they can make it do most of the things the Motorola Atrix 4G does."
insomnia, 15 Feb 2011The first Galaxy S - was copying iPhone 3GS design (as iPhone 4 was not out). Now I see Galaxy... moreThe only reason for which both Galaxys resemble so much to the iPhone is because perfection has only one form and Apple beat Samsung to it. Samsung is great but it's not Apple. ;)
No hdmi output? no problem, via usb will suffice. Still whining about it? What about DLNA for your samsung tv with allshare?
Bottom line: just because you don't have hdmi output doesn't mean you can't view content on your tv through your mobile device at all whiners!
Galaxay S 1 was very laggy and had stopped being supported by Samsung. Also Kies was a pain to use!
How do I know Galaxy S 2 won't be the same?
royal flush, 15 Feb 2011the SG1 has a VGA 0.3 mp front facing camera for video calls, the SG2 has a 2.0Mp camera which... moreVideo calling can mean either calling over 3G or wifi. So we still don't know if it's capable of doing video calling over 3G without a third party app.
