Really great phone, runs Android apps at lightning speed, and a very clear display.
Like the responsiveness and the ease of setting up mail and contacts.
Terrific still and video camera for a phone.
The memory is stated as 16G internal, but that is partitioned, so you are left with 2G of real internal memory and about 12G of "usbStorage" that can't be used to install apps as far as I can tell. Plus if your music is there, the player won't find it. Therefore don't think you'll get away without needing an SD Card.
Battery life is a bit short, but that could be because reception here is weak.
No A/V adaptor included.
Necessary to turn it off and remove the battery to change the SD Card
guyz I bought galaxy s2 atlast after a year on research to find a best smart phone.. Gr8 looking phone.. But am not satisfied.. Phone heats up when you use wifi and youcannot put the phone near your ear due to heat... Speaker phone is pathetic..not so audible..more comments to follow.. This my first day..
Nice Phone.. but, SGS-II has its own bugs..
Good Battery backup 1650mAps
pretty good camera compare to arc.
> Unable to install few games like NFS shift etc.. may be firmware issue..
> Keyboard app stcuks frequently..
> phone call app also hangs (can be inproved in next update)
> also issue while operating with bluetooth headset.
> No notification LED.. :(

AnonD-5465, 20 Jul 2011!! Galaxy SII dont even have them !! check the pics ! also youtube I meant when you look at nexus s pure gingerbread it has that lovely green look ,,i just wondered if that could be replicated on sgs 2.
i would like to know if the 2.3.4 update solves the overheating problem and battery issue.. also would 8gb card be included in the box?? thx.
I have a question,,on some Android devices running Gingerbread at the bottom on homescreen you have 3 green symbols/touch buttons..On left is green fone icon then menu (9small dots) and a world symbol for internet..Is it possible to replicate that on sgs 2..Thanx.

the battery after awhile 2 weeks for an example gets better and better .. now the average is 1.5 days .. thumbs up for this dual core beast !
Can anyone confirm if the Galaxy devices in South Africa have nfc and if not, when they will be bringing it out.
