I have been Nokia user for decade (3310, 7110, 7610, e65, n82). Each mobile I have used for at lest 2 to 3 years. I finally decided to change to android and to find out why everyone these days prefers android over Ios or symbyan. I bought the galaxy s2 as my first android mobile and I have been using for something more than a month. To be honest I have mixed fillings about it more than I expected. The screen is superb and big. But that is also problem because of battery life. Coming from keypad to touch screen I find it to be more exaggerated and not sufficient as the key pad. The software is very demanding and power hungry, and that’s the reason why android phones have better CPU’s and bigger batteries. The navigation is also a problem because I happened to live in Macedonia and Google maps voice guidance on galaxy it’s not available. Not to mention that to get lock for GPS u need at least 5 min. (n82 less then 30 sec) Nokia smart phones can handle Garmin perfectly and I miss it a lot. The ergonomics of the phone are also a concerning. If your jeans have small pocket forget the galaxy. The camera is not as my n82 but the video recording is perfect at galaxy s2
So far I think most balanced mobile is E6. Butt again this is my opinion and my perspective on mobile.

No front camera.
SGS2, the best pho... moreNyje, you say its de best mobile of de year. Have u had an experience with S.E. arc??? I dont really hope so. Its an incredible mobile, its user friendliness is rated 9/10 .
Samsung galaxy s2's got a nice specs. nonetheless, i still doubt its user friendliness. Or better still, lets hear from the users cos criticism is one dumb shit i cant afford to play.
Question, for galaxy s2 users, what is the gaming experience/capabilities of this phone, does it really have gyro sensor??? And what about the battery? Are these specs mentioned above 99% correct?

[deleted post]true..thats the mentality of many. because not everyone is into gadgets. some just go and pick up any top end fone just for the name of the brand.. cause they have enuf money. "ooo look at me i too got an iphone baby".. but u buy the fone for yourself n not for others or to show off.if u seen other models but still like apple, nothing wrong. but many buy it just to flaunt or be 'in the league'..... huh what a waste
i've just left SE ARC for SGS2. The reason is that i have to make video call recently. To my experience, i found that both phone have its special advantages. honestly, arc camara is way better than sgs2 that seems to be over saturated. yet the performnance of sgs2 is much faster than arc in all situation. it is the truth that arc has a better look and its battery stay alive longer than sgs2 for the same useage. in short, just choose the obe that satify ur own needs. NO NEED TO ARGUE WHICH ONE IS BERTER AS LONG AS U LOVE IT THEN IT IS THE BEST PHONE FOR U.
Samsung needs serious thinking on gprs/edge class 33 in future .......
anna, 17 Oct 2011the password locking facility is available..check ur settingsoops.. sorry for the english... ate up half of the words.. the person was saying he found it risky to keep his email open at all times, so i suggested him to download an app lock frm the market. as far as i know theres no such option in phone settings. u only got a screen lock.
anna, 17 Oct 2011the password locking facility is available..check ur settingswhere is password lock .. i dont any such option in my settings. im not talking about the screen lock. im talking abt app lock

majid, 17 Oct 2011If you want a more stylish phone which has a better camera,better sound quality,less price,bet... moreCoarse phone? Its the slimmest Smartphone on the market with a nice design, not to mention its one of the lightest. Prices at the moment are going for £324 in the UK Sim Free so not too bad in comparison to iPhone. The camera is also one of the best in the market with one of the only phones to capture full 1080p HD footage. Errrrrrr and what was that comment about the style or youthfull SE brand? It has made NOTHING hardly over the last Q or so. SGS2 is THE top phone on the market whether you like it or not to be honest.
If you want a more stylish phone which has a better camera,better sound quality,less price,better design,more youthfull and attractive brands name,lighter weight, better UI and slimmer body go for se arc.Honestly galaxy has only a better cpu which only makes little difference in reallity and doesnt have a tangible effect and also isnt necessary for many people but this useless feature makes galaxy more expensive than arc which has many advantages over this overpriced and coarse phone.
