[deleted post]Accept the truth you sad little person, I am giving my opinion, if you only want to hear good things about everything maybe just buy magazines that are sponsored by Samsung.
Get a life
Reposting my reviews and fixing some mistakes
Ok I will explain the reasons I am no longer putting up with the Galaxy S2.
Here are my likes 1st of all.
Screen is nice.
Very fast web browsing.
Here are my dislikes
Camera/video are complete joke-VERY VERY POOR quality from the so called 8MP camera, funny how on every single shot I compare to my original Galaxy S that the S2 produce much worse pictures- Also must add its not that my S2 is faulty as my girlfriend also has S2 with very same results.
GPS= no chance- Constantly searching for signal and volume is impossible to hear.
oven gloves are required after 5 minutes holding this phone if your browsing the web or doing anything that remotely uses power of battery- Its actually scary how hot this phone becomes.
Phone automatically dims to half brightness when using the phone for 5 minutes with a message appearing saying- reduced power to save overheating.( maybe this will be fixed with firmware upgrade in future but my phone is Vodafone branded so this could be a long wait.
Battery life very poor compared to my original Galaxy S
The biggest fault I have with this phone is how poor the video recording actually is.
Auto focos is a complete failure, constantly in and out of focus and takes about 5 seconds everytime to focus.
Exposure when recording video takes roughly 10 seconds to correct itself, what I mean by this is if you take a video and recording out a window for instance into daylight then continue to video indoor in lower lighting conditions the exposure is complete joke.
I just cant understand why my Galaxy S records video so much better and takes much better photos.
Why also when recording video I am unable to press power button to lock screen to save accidently zooming like I could on Galaxy S
I knew this phone was too good to be true.
Sorry for condition of this email but very hard typing from a phone.
My S2 is not faulty as have tried a few and all have the same issues I mention.
Before everyone starts kicking off, I hate HTC Sensation and no other phone on the market comes close to the Galaxy S2, if they would fix these Issues I would not revert back to my Galaxy S original.
Samsung why bring out a camera/video worse than your previous 5 megapixel cam.
still no news about US release .... :(
dun knw whats sammy's problem .... when its released everywhere ... why not here ?
and they are saying now it will release in verizon .... common ... we all want the GSM version >>>

Sandy, 09 Jun 2011its available in all leading Showrooms in Bangalore. 30k for 16GBInstead of throwing a blanket statement like this, can u name some of these 'leading' stores? I am in Koramangala area and I could not find it in stores like Univercell, Sangeetha and some other stores near Sony World Crossing, Forum area... So if u can give me names of some these stores it will be helpful...
been using the sgII for a week now and must say i am very impressed. I am not a big gadgetman but the speed and smoothness of the phone is great. Nice camera, superb video, if anyone thinking of getting it i would strongly recommend it........:)
I didn`t get a CD with it to install on computer,so i can send music from computer to mobile ..every mobile has to go with a cd,so does this one(or doesn`t ? O.o).. can somebody help me with this or i made mistake ??
where is Asus padafone in the site .. its already announced . this site is going slow and slow ..
i do like the SGSII and i will buy one cuz i beleive that it's the best smartphone in 2011 :))
but in the same time i ADORE the sense UI... It's amazing specially the E-mail widgets & the interface...
how can we make that mix... Galaxy SII with Sense 3 UI or even sense 2 ??? that will make the SGSII just PERFECT all the way ;))
any advices or suggestions ???
Thank you in advance...
my samsung galaxy s2 has no facial recognition feature what should i do ?
Poomonster, 09 Jun 2011Hi all, I was wondering if anyone that has this phone can comment on the music playback qualit... moreIf music quality s important wud suggest u skip this. I used to have n900 which according to me has better quality thru both speaker and earphones. This one sounds a bit unnatural. Plz feel free to check it in srores if u get a chance. If u ask me i am not tht impresed. All d best
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2011It is already available at Hyperpanda KSAhow much is it in hyperpanda KSA
Hi all, I was wondering if anyone that has this phone can comment on the music playback quality through earphones. I am looking to get one of these phones at the end of the month but have been put off by reviews saying that the sound quality through earphones is not very good. I currently have an iPhone 3GS which gives excellent quality sound. I listen to music a lot on the phone and would rather keep my iPhone a bit longer than change to this and be disappointed. Any genuine comments would be greatly appreciated.
