Your right there. There is no other experience like this phone. Its very quick & just about does everything you want instantly. There is a great suite of software preloaded with Android Gingerbread 2.3.3. No games are preloaded tho. I bought a Samsung 32GB MicroSD Memory card aswell.
The only niggle for me is sending phone back as it arrived with a defect I didn't notice until reading gsmarena blog article on the yellow & pink display issues. I realized mine had the yellow tint issue which I can say was handled very well by Samsung support, & it came back without the defect "Yellow tint"
The new display is better than the last one. I'm sure the definition & Pixel per Inche density of the new unit is better than the orgiginal device unit because i see a difference in detail when browsing gsmrena. Certain images don't look as bad etc... etc...
The other small niggle is non hot swappable memory card. If you unmount the card or take it out, bam. You'll have to use KIES & go through the laborious & timely procedure of addming your music collection.
I am waiting now for the 2000MAH Samsung extended battery to arrive from Clove. One of the few places to already sell the new battery. I need extended life. Hopefully if the nexus prime battery is the same fit as galaxy sII we can then use 2450MAH battery in our galaxy sII. Also you could prob use the 4G or 4g LTE versions with 1850MAH battery.
There has never been a greater choice of batterys for a phone. Samsung Galaxy SII is sorted. btw the camera is amazing, the 1080P excellent. Music playback sounds better than my Nokia 5800 & N900. I have a gel cases for mine, Green, yellow, & a pack with 10+ colours gel cases although they don't fit aswell as the two made by AIO I think it AIO??
just finished setting up my galaxy s 2. and my first samsung device ever. great phone, exremelly awesome. just feel that the brand image of samsung needs a boost. keep it up sammy for the great products.
when you have galaxy s2 in your hand. play it , feel it, then*** you people will believe in your eyes, s2 is fantastic. talk is cheap, find the real dream.
Unable to access Samsung apps world, when I accept the disclaimer on the phone, it waits a few swconds then returns to disclaimer screen again and again, tried on WiFi & 3G.
Even did a hard re-set, no joy ???
symbian vs android... :)
AnonD-18025, 04 Oct 2011Then go for SonyEricsson Xperia Play, that is the phone for gamers like you, not SGS2. Or bet... morei agree This phone is a WOW. I want this on my list this christmas.I hope my HD games I downloaded from http://mediafiredownloadz.com will work on this device.
AnonD-11248, 05 Oct 2011Streaming movies can be usefull if u don't want to use up memory on your phone but the picture... moreS2 can easily handle streaming flash 11 hd movies, 720p, it can even handle 1080p streaming movies, so the movie-quality is perfect on S2 even when streaming movies! I have unlimited data on my 3g-network!

Or bet... moreI am actually not really a "gamer", I used to be but not anymore, but I do like to play games sometimes. I think I have played most of the good games on SonyPlaystation... so I see no point in buying xperia play to play these again, and the hardware on xperia play is not good enough to handle the latest new games, that I have not played yet, for mobile phones, and I do not like the glossy bulky plastic design or the user interface on all SE phones and the too small internal memory, and the slide-out gamepad can not be used as a qwerty-keyboard and I would look like a teenage kid if I showed xperia play at my work.
S2 is the best gaming-phone today, and it is perfect for watching streamed hd flash movies from pages like justin.tv... when I travel by train and while I charge phone-battery anyway.
AnonD-24896, 05 Oct 2011pls tell me more about this phoneIt's the best Smartphone so far.
Will it be possible to upgrade sgs2 to the new ice-cream sandwich software.. When is it coming out..the software, will it destroy the warranty?
AnonD-18025, 05 Oct 2011Use Opera mini, you will be able to watch the movie whle downloading.Streaming movies can be usefull if u don't want to use up memory on your phone but the picture quality is not as good as a downloaded movie espesially if you download it at 720p
AnonD-24896, 05 Oct 2011pls tell me more about this phoneKindly click the "Specifications" on the left side of this page.
No need to elaborate more.
AnonD-24896, 05 Oct 2011samsung 19100 is not goodYou don't know how to use SGS2 that's why you are saying that.
Better use a low end phone if you don't know how to explore a smartphone.
Having only had the Galaxy S2 for only almost a month im still learning it
But overall i find it a brilliant phone
My phone b4 the Nokia N8 crashed from day one & was a pain in the butt
I have compaired the Galaxy S2 with the Iphone 4 as 2 of my daughters have 1 & i find them very slow & often loose there signals & arnt very good as regarding putting ringtones or texttones on them
You have to buy them and install via itunes which is a pain
Ive always liked samsung phones so im going to stick to them from now on :-)
Apple Number 1??? HAHA! I really dont think so. To be fair over the past year i did actually think the announcement yesterday was going to blow the SGS2 away. But how wrong could i have been. Its larger (In terms of width) and slower then the S2. I dont know why that guy from Apple yesterday was saying " This is the slimmest and best smartphone out there".......errrrrr newsflash buddy.....it WAS a few years back........NOT ANYMORE!
