I'll keep this phone even because I'm still paying for it.
The issue here isn't about defending or attacking any particular brand/company.
It's a question of spending our money and being deceived, getting something that doesn't meet what's advertised and expected and getting the "that's only natural/That happens in every phone" standard answer from the responsible part.
Your phone meets up or even exceeds your expectations? Good for you!
Then, it hasn't been expensive and it was well worth the money, whatever the brand or model.
We should demand higher quality standards and conformity from everything we buy and stop acting as fanboys of a(ny) brand.
Me, I just can't recommend the S2 or Samsung's support.
That's all there is to it.
damn. Just got a galaxy s2... I'm very impressed i must say. Now that's one hell of a machine. Tha HD Video playback is phenomenal
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2012how to compare between n & s2,b'coz n8 is approx 1 year older than s2.U said it urself... N8 is Old and outdated. S2 is future.
Its hang on gaming mode...so what the meaning of dual core processor...!
[deleted post]android os has to grow..
right now very unstable os uses up too much of ram.. just drinks battery like dracula sucking blood..
last but not the least android os is very susceptible to malware..
so GOOGLE should work on it & develop it well..
may be android os version 7.0 will be stable.. lets wait & see.

@Samantha, I know what you mean. Samsung don't seem to care much about replacing faulty hardware. Too bad really, the phones they make would've been really amazing - if only the lottery part could be avoided.
To everyone that owns a Samsung phone and has no problems: more power to you, and consider yourselves lucky. But don't go calling other people trolls just because you happen to have a healthy phone yourselves.
Yes battery life is good on 2.3.6 but phone use to hang a lot and on off by itself ....as i am using galaxy s2 and updates by phone twice t0 2.3.6 from samsung carecentre.....so they again updated it to previous version 2.3.3 now its working fine but battery life is poor as compared to 2.3.6 as i used both version....
Those who r facing please use Battery Bosster from Andriod Market and Juice Ultimate Defender……you will definitely will see some improvement.
This phone is great... on paper! Its quality control and hardware problems spoil a potentially brilliant device.
What has been done to solve the phone's faults, you may ask?
Marketing and Advertising campaigns devised to sell "white" versions, make fun of Apple fanboys and, ultimately, feed Samsung's own army of fans.
The Galaxy S2 has (many) battery problems, screen tinting (colour tinting issues) and a camera that shows a pink spot both on videos and photos.
That means the Galaxy S2 is a let down that is astonishingly pricey due to the price paid to advertisers and marketing agencies.
If only they had spent that kind of money on quality control...
Godsson, 20 Feb 2012U're are just being biased about the whole issue man! think about it sg2's got all d features ... moreClever ADvertising. That's all there is into it.
Both Samsung an Apple sell overpriced phones which could literaly be sold half the price.
Apple has brought nothing new in their latest releases: Making new from old seems to be the key to selling an image and making people pay for it.You're not actually payiong for a midrange phone, you're paying for your self-image...
Samsung have come up with the "Iphone Killer": basically a high-end hardware phone let down by many faults and poor quality control.
The result? You end up paying for a phone with screen problems, whose battery overheats.. OFTEN and with an unavoidable pink spot in every photo you take on a white background.
That means I had mine replaced... for no obvious benefit!
Latest software have tried to disguise a hardware problem, but I for one, do not believe in paying so much for so little and feeling happy for it.
That is why I feel exploited and wish I could get a refund and go back to my (actually, not so older) phone.
I wish I could buy a good phone, which would perform according to what's advertised, not a good image.
But, that seems to be getting harder and harder, nowadays...
i want to know is it right that the ordinary version of galaxy s ii I9100 stopped for production and all new galaxy phones is the I9100G version
Many new good phones out there nowadays but ofcourse SG2 is the benchmark. To have a better phone a mfg must outdo it! That says alot about who's boss. Samsung win_pants down_but I only have 2 problems.
1.Battery! Like seriously! MotoRazzr Maxx is 3300mah.
2.NO gsm/gsm dual SIM SG2 variant which I beleive would b like owning 2 GS2s at the same time in one gadget!
