Samsung Wave is good too overall but I had the hard time to fix it.
Still couldn't find any solutions in headphone.
Lead sound disappeared when connected with a headphone.
Tried different player, different headphone but no luck.
Any solution please??????
Having previously owned the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab, there was no way i could resist acquiring the Galaxy S II especially after reading all the reviews about it on GSM Arena.
So i got the phone 3 days ago and i have been busy setting up all my stuff on it and downloading additional apps.
The phone did not disappoint in any way, however i am yet to fully experience the power and speed of the 1.2ghz processor, probably because of my phone carriers limitations.
But having said that its Galaxy S II for me anyday anytime.
i have this phone now for a week .. i like it alot , better than the Iphone 3 and 4 i owned before .. just one realy bad thing : Satelitte FIX !! man what a mess! i am fighting with different updates from andriod , and sat fix programs . also navigate software from Cygic is a real drama .
But: video and photo quality is amazing !
I can't decided between this Samsung Galaxy S-II and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc.
Any advice ?

But its definitely worth the money and many other owners think so too. I am loving my phone. I have made the comparison between HTC Sensation and SGS2(i eliminated iphone4 from my choices too) by researching online, reading reviews(the review at gsmarena is quite detailed and the phone is really as good as what they described. if you haven't read it, you really should) and watching online videos of these two phones before i made up my mind and chose SGS2. Personally, the design of the SGS2 has already won me over by a little. Have you read up the features of the phone from the official website? If not, you can take a look here: http://www.samsung.com/global/microsite/galaxys2/html/feature.html
Its pretty awesome.
You can also search for "Samsung galaxy s2 vs HTC sensation" videos on youtube and see the comparisons for yourself and see which do you prefer. It all boils down to your personal interest. Still in terms of battery life, web browsing performance, camera, video quality etc and other tests conducted at http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_sensation-review-605p4.php samsung is still at the upper hand.
About the heating problem, for my case, the phone only heats up when i am charging the phone or when i am doing intensive multi tasking (like play games, surfing, music, facebook, message all in one go). It gets the hottest during charging only, i would say. But the heat is really acceptable in my opinion. And many also says that their smartphones get heat up too. So its quite normal actually. I installed some gadgets from android to measure the battery temperature. It will never exceed 50(the critical temp), the highest it can go during charging is 40 deg. In Idle mode / when i m solely listenning to music its only 30 and the phone does not feel hot at all.
