samsung brings you technology with chipest price
Nokia has nothing except camera
Apple iphone brings the best quality and is not expesive!
My encounter with galaxy s2 vs iphone-4/ipod touch 4g
its also about iOS vs Android
First , Dual-core vs Single-Core , performance wise s2 is faster than iphone 4 but unfortunately its not twice as fast or 50% faster , overall i saw about 20% better performance .
only like 3-4 seconds gap between comparing tasks done on both phones atmost but unfortunately due to flash and heavy CPU , galaxy battery isn't as good as iphone-4 where iphone-4 has really good battery life after comparing .
internet-performance is superb on dual-core , other tasks may not be showing much improvements comparing with single core but internet is like 40-50% faster especially on using fast browsers like opera .
dual-core only matters for browsing experience but download speeds remain same .
quality , android has good market of apps worldwide , after comparing both appstore and android market , i found really surprising that android apps are very good quality and also free while most of the apps free on android have small ad-banners while all iOS version of same android apps cost u 99 cents ad-free such a rip off in iOS and also ultlity apps widgets awesome simply amazing .
but no-one can beat games of appstore , here i vote for iphone for sure , but apps-wise android market .
Displays , i had high expectations for both displays but unfortunately i didn't like either of them because of many reasons , problem with s2 display is pictures look over-contrasted many cases and also un-natural feels so bad for the eyes especially videos . text looks very good and fine .
Retina display is good but many flaws
1. Yellow-Tint (even in camera)
2. poor black-levels
3. not so accuracy in producing colours (oversaturated here but over-contrasted in case of s2)
and i really appreciate high viewing angles of retina display pretty amazing and also more crispness .
both screens look crisp from a normal distance . but s2 screen has very big size and also very good black-levels .
here galaxy s2 wins by just a margin maybe ,
build quality , here galaxy plastic body + light weight feels like carrying a tv-remote it doesn't feel like holding a dual-core smartphone but iphone with good body design looks so good but unfortunately very bad grip , while galaxy s2 has good grip but that good-grip position messes up with speaker position .
both phones have average grips and iphone isnt facing reception issues . here i give score for iphone-4 due to speaker position of galaxy s2 .
OS - flash + widgets really cool
Harwdware = SD-card , removable battery
so overall galaxy s2 wins by so much margin .
after much delay...i bought the gs2 over iphone4 and finally say bye2 to nokia n97, my 6th nokia version since year 1998.. reason for the change to gs2 over... some of my fren whom is a ip4 geek even bought gs2 n say its better...best spec price android with a good price (lower to htc) and the rest of reason everybody here have mentioned... the bad part... screen is big (which is good for me) but not one hand friendly...yes it can turn a bit hot if you play extensive games even after few minutes, u will really fell it when hav to pick up calls not using the speaker..free games is samsung not updated for gingerbread...battery only last for 1day with occasional gaming n surfing during office break n after work, 30 short call n sms (7am to 1am)..one thing 1 want to do now is to find a diff screen protector...the want which i got for free (matte type) is reducing the screen view n touch feel..overall im really happy having this phone...which i think is the best smartphone at this moment..

Hi all, for those who want more powerful batteries, go to amazon or google and type on 2400 mAH, 3500 maH or 5000 maH batteries.
My query is how do I switch of alert tone when I recieve SMS receiept? I want my alert tone on when I get a voicemail/SMS but want it off when an SMS receipt comes back to me.
Also - how do I set my voicemail to 30 seconds? Meaning my phone will ring for 30 seconds before it goes to voicemail? At the moment, my phone rings for 15 seconds and then goes to voicemail. That is too short. Thanks.
AnonD-5465, 25 Jul 2011mine is 3380 under official rom
battery lasts for atleast 24hrs under heavy use
about 3... moreOh absolutly i am getting good battery life its other chap who is getting 8hrs for some reason,,he could have things in background etc or faulty..
On 2.3.3 i was getting good battery but since updating 2.3.4 i reckon i am getting 50% more..
I have found a weird bug in SPB TV and France 24 which i use for live news,,,if you start it the audio plays but no video,,if you start it again the video plays with no audio...Might hunt around for answer or send an email off to SPB..I use this app everyday its just one of the apps you get thats stays with you and cant do without.
I love this fone even able to adjust the mode settings of screen;
Settings--Display--Screen Mode,,i reckon everyone has it in Dynamic mode for full colour but i like movie mode for better contrast.
AnonD-8044, 25 Jul 2011This is what i would do ,charge your fone and leave it for 10 hrs with nothing doing and chec... moremine is 3380 under official rom
battery lasts for atleast 24hrs under heavy use
about 36hrs un heavy --SMART-- use = closing data network wifi bluetooth gps when not needed and clearing the ram from taskmanager
hope that helps... by the way ... the more social app. u install the more battery is consumed as those apps runs in the background 24hrs to keep u updated ... ONLY install the programs u need .. not to show off
thanks pals ;))) am using skype fring and whatsapp also facebook and twitter ... thats all what are runining 24hrs with email set to every 6hrs with the weather app. set to refresh every 2 hrs
so 24~36 full hours are AMAZINGGGGGG
Mind-blowing. That's all that needs to be said about the Galaxy S II. If you can afford to buy it, you will love it.
Hi, i just bought this mobile 2 days ago. I didn't get any heat problem. Camera quality is good. What i like touch by focus. i used to using Nokia N82. My battery only 1 day, but enough for me.
The screen is a bit over saturated. If i took a picture in low light, the human's skin colour is not natural anymore, a bit to red. Maybe it's good for a view, but for human's skin colour i prefer my old N82.
I admitted this phone is wonderful, very fast.
I just wondering if the glass camera at the back of the phone using the gorilla glass?
Please any body can help me, how to set phone ring tone from the file that i copy to mass memory? I've to go to the music file and set as ring tone first to make that file on the list of phone ring tone. If i want to set for a group there is a list that i can choose.
Should i install antivirus? Is AVG free edition good enough?
Where i can d/l games in hd? From the samsung market, it's said that it's not compatible. Something like need for speed hd, assasin hd etc.
Thanks in advance.
techzyber, 24 Jul 2011android 2.3 is new version of mobile android os it best
but one os is better than android 2.... moreyou said that ios5 is better than gingerbread 2.3. You gave the link that said this:
* No Flash support in the web browser
*No quick toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G
*No Facebook integration
*No proper widgets for the lockscreen
*App folders still are limited to 12 apps tops
*No DivX/XviD video support out of the box (though there’re lots of players in the App Store)
*No USB Mass storage mode for uploading content to the device
*No haptics for the touchscreen
*No Bluetooth file transfers to other phones
*Contacts lack a swipe-to-delete or mass delete feature
So disatvantages are so bigger then atvantages of ios5. So ios5 never become best os then android
imm, 25 Jul 2011Dears...stucked b/w buying Samsung GSII/Xperia Arc or HTC Sensation....I am not that much upda... moreIf you're not too keen on the tech, i'd say decide on either the Samsung Galaxy S2 or the Iphone 5 when it comes out. But only you can decide on which
BDDHK, 25 Jul 2011May be it's because those are services.
Active applications are shown in Task Manager but not... more@ brynn and BDDHK.......
hmm...is there a app which kills the apps automatically...coz its frustrating to do it manually everytime....at the end it consumes battery even if its nt used and runns in the background
only few things which are needed to make it a perfect phone- metallic body with better design, atleast stereo sound recording in HD video recording, better battery(even 2500 mAh battery would be incapable of feeding this beast)
by the way could any one name any such smartphone with this many functionalities which has satisfactory battery back-up
v, 25 Jul 2011m sure the battry s gonna b a prob even if he says its working fine,,,,,another things eats me... moreMay be it's because those are services.
Active applications are shown in Task Manager but not active services.... for example, yahoo messenger or GTalk, these are open services but not shown in task manager. Task killer would close these two and would show as two apps killed. Those are actually services .. no harm.
A great news about SG2 . 3 million S2 sold last 3 weeks . Total 6 millian in last 75 days . Woh . . .
