Does Flipkart or Letsbuy.com sell 100% genuine product (Galaxy s2)??? these web sites are trust worthy??? im planning to buy galaxy s2 in either Flipkart r Letsbuy...Please to advice on buying phone in such web sites...
Tim, 28 Nov 2011Not true! Unfortunately most S2 phones have BOTH the yellow tint fault AND the pink spot prob... moreSo, I set a white background on my phone, took a screenshot of it, uploaded it to my PC, open up my photoshop, click on the color picker, then click on the whites across the entire screen, all the corners and the middle, and the color picker reads 255 for R G B. Meaning the screen is free from any tinting. And this is what GSMarena does on its review.(Just that when they did this test on their test unit, it happens to have the yellow tint issue.) I'm here to say, NOT EVERY SGS2 UNITS HAVE THE YELLOW TINT ISSUE!

Does iPhone 4 supports 4G @21 Mbps?
Does iPhone gives a bigger screen display?
Does iPhone 4 has a light weight and slim body?
Does iPhone supports swype texting to make messaging easier?
Answer those honestly and say again that this phone is not an iPhone killer.

As you said over all it's good phone maybe the best Android phone till date but still not an iPhone killer.
MOBILE USER, 29 Nov 2011I do read some positive comments but the negative are much more than the positive! ..I'm just ... moreAll the things you mentioned in your previous post were not present in my S2.
I don't know where you got those informations.
Or maybe they got the fake units, you know nowadays, lots of immitations.
Especially when the product is selling like hot cakes.
As far as I know, S2 is better than other smartphone available now and the GSMArena current ratings by rate will speak for it.
If you have doubt, then don't buy it.
As simple as that!

Why don't you look at the other side of the street before crossing? You are only looking at the left side, watch out there's a car on the right side!
I suggest you read the positive comments before judging or the car will hit you!

Straight to the point and you use language that are not technical and easily understood by most readers. I'm really thinking of buying this phone...and it seems that the drawback is only the battery life. Anyway, thanks for your time in giving your outstanding review. Cheers!!
