Hi I know this might sound like a stupid question but I appreciate your response, I have sgs1 and am thinking of upgrading to sgs2 but I want to know if there is a real improvement from sgs1 as I have not used a dual core phone before. Thank you in advance.
Grimmjow, 15 Dec 2011What's your thoughts on this phone should I get it or not?Well,if u like tablets get galaxy note if not get the S2,its currently the best phone on market along with HTC sensation
[deleted post]This is not I9100G dude.
When you are in I9100G forum talk about it. And that's the first firmware upgrade it got fyi.
I am using Samsung as a secondary for 4 years now, I know how they update their stuffs. How many examples do I need to give you? Wave, Omnia HD, now GS II....

The perfect mobile... I wouldn't change for an iphone!
Even kept my laptop turned off for a whole week without noticing.
I agree fully with the complaints about it been too big and pretty ugly but is the fastest fone out their..I complain time and time again about these ugly souless slabs with no design..I am just bearing with sgs2 till designers do what they are paid for a design a MOBILE PHONE like moto v600etc...These things are classed as mobiles but look nowt like a telephone give me this sgs2 power in the Sharp clamshell type fones and i will get back my mojo..Until then i just persevere with these boring slabs with no sould or design ..

Download a software called Odin and the latest 2.3.6 ROM, KK5 from there, flash it. It's a 3 minutes process.
[deleted post]OTA? Are you kidding me?
Last update India got was 2.3.3 XWKF3, 6 months ago.
Don't expect any more updates for us. And forget OTA. OTA update is available only in very few countries like Poland etc.......
Samsung is Crap when it comes to after sales support, its fact, get used with it.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2011For $400, this is the best phone. Sensation? Optimus? Xperia? Artrix? you name it.
It even ... more$400??? You must be joking!
This phone costs - unbranded - $600!
(actual price - everywhere: $599)
That actually means it is a great phone - on paper - let down by poor quality control and serious hardware (screen and camera) flaws.
The yellow tinting is there for everyone (who isn't fanatical) to see and the pink spot can be disguised by software tricks.
If I wanted my photos to have to go through software enhancing or photoshop, I wouldn't have paid $600!
With a much cheaper phone (even if it were a Samsung) I would have saved much money and I wouldn't have to face a faulty screen and have so many of my photos with a pink spot/blur in the middle.
This phone has disappointed many and its flaws are so evident that Samsung went back to a 5MP Camera and a regular Amoled screen (no longer an Amoled Plus) on their new phone, the Nexus.
I hope the Galaxy S3 won't be suffering from such problems. We're just a few months away from its release and consumers will not forget Samsung's mistakes.
The S2 would have sold MUCH better if it hadn't suffered from so many problems.
If you google "pink spot" or "yellow tint", you'll find literally thousands of references and descriptions of the S2's faults.
And that can't be denied and it's all evidenece Samsung will have to bear in mind to continue their success in the mobile phone market.

Are you sure you even have an S2 ?

if you can't handle a great phone go for a cheap one because then no phone will be good enough. A nokia 3310 might worh for you...
