There are so many webpages for watching TV and movies that I never felt any need to buy a new TV, and all advertising makes any good movie... unwatchable on any TV anyway!

I am not loyal to any brand or company! I used to like Nokia, but N97 mini was too bad on everything and that made me look for any alternative and when I tried Android I was amazed how very much better and userfriendly it is than Symbian. Windows Mobile was really bad, and WP7 is simply too boring and even more restricted than iOS, I can not change or improve anything on WP7 or iOS, not even the user-interface!
Nokia make excellent phone-shells/casings, but today Samsung makes the best internal hardware, and even Apple buy from Samsung to use in their iPhones.
Metal only makes the phone heavy, but if I would change anything on S2 it would be to make the backcover of a more rubberized plastic because the one now used is sometimes a bit "slippery", but S1 and Arc and Neo feels a lot more "plastic" than S2, and the S2 backcover is no "fingerprintmagnet" at all.
S2 is so thin and lightweight that I can not even feel it in my pants pocket, and when I write emails... I really love the big screen and "Smart Keyboard Pro" that can enlarge buttons to really make it easy to write fast and without many errors, but I can understand if women and kids with smaller hands think S2 is too big to be comfortable when used as a "phone".
HTC make good looking phones, and I really like my Desire, but HTC have to many hardware-problems, unable to keep stable 3g-connection and screens that become unresponsive after only a few months use. SE are too "plastic" even for me and have a really annoying user-interface, and SE-screens are not "scratch-resistant" at all. LG gave too bad software support. So today Samsung is the best company, and S2 is the best phone, but this can change very soon, and if Nokia decide to make Tizen-phones or start using Android, then I could consider buying a Nokia-phone again. But I think Samsung will be the best company for atleast another year, and they now develop Tizen, that replace MeeGo, together with Intel.

Pooja, 21 Oct 2011Finally i have enough money to buy this phone, i am buying two phones :D one for my Brother. ... moreSG S2 gets fully charged in almost 3 hours, and thereafter further charging is stopped. You can keep it connected to charger as long as you wish but it will not help. You can search torrents for apps.
i'am a nokia player for15 year, everytime i buy is nokia brand, but now compare to s2, I quit nokia, spent to much money$$$$$$$ can't make me satisfy, since s2 come out, I swich to samsung brand, then I find out s2 is super,quality and style. specially SPEED. this is important today for the internet use, so what you think ? my friends.

There are other units which are walkman/music phone, game phone, TV phone, and etc..
N8 is a just camera phone nothing more, that's all.
I was an N8 user before,, I traded off my n8 with s2. After reading all comments. I would say this is one of the best phone currently out in the market,, fast browsing and amazing screen.
BUT after two weeks of used the wow factor has gradually diminished. everytime I look on the pictures taken on my s2 ,, they are not as crisp as my n8.
Its also big if you are type of person who usually put the phone inside their jeans pocket,, you wont likely bring this phone out with you.
And finally value for money, its expensive and the design is not eye catchy... this might be the best phone out there in terms of specs....
People are so un-educated, they are comparing phones which have entilry different specs, even NOKIA dest not compare N8 with SGS2 , because they know very well that SGS2 is thousand times better device than N8.My request to foolish people is compare SGS2 with HTC Sensatioin and Iphone 4s. Take care and think with logic....

Can you point out which part of my comment is harsh?
I am just correcting his misleading post.
Your experience is not the whole story that will describe the performance of the unit.
Think first before you post because you are not the only user of SGS2.
Yes I do respect true opinion but not the wrong ones.
Ssup guys,i recently bought this galaxy s2 i cant operate d phone coz is asking me of my service providers code n am nt from europe.plzzzz i need ur urgent help
Listen...Problem with S2 here and there...it's sometimes how u handle it...giving it much more pressure than it should actually receive. Guys relax with em phones. I got my N8 and we both koolio with each other, i ain't gonna persuade some1 into buying it. It's okay for me. It might or might not be for U.
