Dear Galaxy S2 users,
I am planning to buy a smartphone but am confused between SGS2 and Xperia arc. I have heard that the call quality (earpiece) of the SGS2 is not that good, while the call quality (earpiece) of the Arc is outstanding. Please comment on this. Call quality through earpiece is very important for me.

I've just moved to an SII from a Sony W995. I'm a heavy user and used ActiveSync on my W995 for contacts and calendar sync with my MS Outlook contacts and calendars, I switched off email as it became tedious receiving it on the phone, I prefer to deal with email at my desk on my PC. The calendar on the W995 is pretty good and does everything I need. And I rely heavily on my calendar to organise my life - when I have my children stay with me, school events, birthdays, MOT, car tax, payments etc. I have a complicated and busy life. The W995 is a fab phone and is rock solid reliable.
Now the S2. Build quality better than I had been lead to expect from reviews, fast, fabulous screen and amazing apps. However ... and it's a BIG however: In pratice it is a very impractical phone with several faults. I compare all my experiences with using the W995. Texting - painful, the touch screen keyboard is a pain if you need to go back to edit. Left and right arrows keys (D-pad on W995) are a dream. Very fiddly on the S2. Plus the number of touch strokes to get into the text are many more. On the W995 it's simply press Address book, scroll/key to the contact, press options | Send message | Select and you're into the body of the message. Plus with shortcuts set up there can be less keystrokes than this. Similary, press the up arrow and you're into the calendar.
So far my S2 has crashed three times (I've only had it for five days). I have dialled calls where the callee has picked up but can't hear me and I can't hear them. I've killed all running apps to ensure minimal impact on resources. The only fix has been a power down and restart. My Plantronics Voyager Pro blue tooth earpiece (briliant in its own right) partners readily with the S2, however calls do not come through to it. Speech quality can be erratic and dalek-like. It's also possible to make a call and lose the screen it was on so you can't control the call, e.g. hang up.
So it's a love hate relationship so far. I do love everything the phone can do - truly incredible apps, however it's practical use as a phone for calls and texting is very painful. I am hoping I will get used to this phone as I want to keep it. However, my W995 was so easy to use single handedly. Incoming text messages just get displayed. Calendar appointments are displayed and alerted easily. On the S2 they are not so obviously displayed or alerted even with widgets.
Even sat nav on the W995 was good although much better on the S2. I love my W995 but I miss it loads already. And the battery on my S2 is almost dead at 3pm after very limited use today, the W995 would be going strong still by now.
With music, the S2 decided to stop working complaining the music was the wrong format. A re-boot of the phone and it is happy again.
So I am in a real dilemma, do I stay with the troublesome but fantastic S2 or try to go back to my W995 (I need a new one because my old one is very worn, has been dropped many times onto the pavement and I think is now suffering as a result)? I'm not sure. Smartphones are the way of the future but nothing can ever replace the positive tactile experience of using a keypad and navigation (i.e. left/right/up/down) keys. My W995 only ever froze once since I got it 18 months ago.
One key press and I can voice record. I can also record phone calls, very handy.
So I am squirming with indecision at the moment. Reliable, practical, brilliant W995 or unreliable, awkward, stuning S2?

Is everyone here happy with the SG2? My sister doesnt really like it. She liked the previous galaxy better. This one is too big, feels too plasticky. Agree or not?
it has been an experience of a lifetime. it just cant get better than this.. a phone worth every cent

Badhan zaman, 30 Jun 2011Can I Play All 34 gameloft Hd games in Galaxy s2?
Please Help Me Someone because I dont know ... moreOf course he can play all the game from gameloft, and future (powerdrain game)
Hey i am one of the early adopters of this phone in India & i have this phone for about 3 weeks now and all i can say it the best smart phone there is ....
However even with the best of my efforts i still could not see the infamous yellow spot of galaxy s 2 on my phone as discussed on this site and the various posts before me
The only disadvantage about this power hungry beast is it eats up the battery very fast especially during game play
It hardly last s a full day and goes below 10% after about 22 hours of moderate to heavy use but will last two days for soft or lite users on a full charge
It does warm up a little[especially during game play ] as mentioned in few posts before me but but its not much of issue at least to me :)
This phone does not hav hdmi port or cable,, but specs says it has tv out n support on mhl??? How???
Loved the processing speed and browser...but 4.3 inch is too big for a phone i could'nt buy it because of its size :(
Does samsung galaxy s2 support 3g videocalling without skype or tango as in symbian or java phone
i think fring can be use for video calling, samsung should concentrate more on the battery and the heat issue, if heat contineous this phone wont last a year! well who needs a year samsung realeses phones every other day lol, as soon as u bought the latest model and started using it ur already outdated haha
