Jazys, 20 Aug 2011Hi I m planing to buy an android fone in few days and i m useing samsung wave 2 which one i s... moreA (dual core) processor separates them.. if you want sheer power and smoothness go for SII, if you want elegance and looks then go for Arc.
Having used this phone for the last month, overall pretty happy with it. Upgraded from a 3gs and have to say there are a few negatives having made the jump from an iphone. Even though the handset has 16gb of internal memory, only 2gb of that is reserved for system memory. Due to the way Android operates a lot of apps need to be saved on the system memory. Next, the no. of quality apps available is someway lagging behind the app store. One of the biggest surprises to me is that the touchscreen is less responsive & sometimes annoyingly inaccurate when compared to my old 3gs.
The biggest downside with this handset is the appalling battery life. Also be carefully
apps you have running in the background as your data allowance will be eaten up in no time.
On the plus side the screen makes web browsing and viewing media a whole new experience on a mobile and the processor means everything you do works instantly.
Camera is excellent and overall the phone is a joy to use.
However if I wasn't already due an upgrade earlier in the year I think it may be worth waiting to see what the new iphone has to offer. I'm sure the Android market will improved

My s2 had a motherboard issue in which it is not displaying the memorycard's available space(shows as 0MB the available space) and poor response from service centre very disapponted. I returned the device the second day i bought still couldn't get the DOA certificate for replacement. Din't expect this from SAMSUNG too bad

Listo CHRISTO, 19 Aug 2011I came accross this sentence that the micro SD of the galaxy sii is not ''hot-swappable.'' Can... moreAFAIK...it means you can't just open a slot and insert a sd card or take one out...you will need to turn the phone off,take the battery out(generally) and then do it..since the slot is inside there..
Listo CHRISTO, 19 Aug 2011I came accross this sentence that the micro SD of the galaxy sii is not ''hot-swappable.'' Can... moreThis just means it will be safe to remove and or add the memory card while the phone is still powered up. This is a conveience if you need to keep data separated or backed up and now you can change the card when you want.
