FaceBook, 31 May 2011is the phone works/run on SIMPLE MOBILE network 3G (1700/2100 Mhz)??? I know this phone works ... moreI dont think you will get 3G on SGS II if you use SIMPLE MOBILE as it's using 1700/2100 Mhz. You will only get 2G on it. Only phones like Nokia N900 & other recent Nokia phones which use HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 can get 3G signal using simple mobile provider.
If you wanna use SGS II, there is another AT&T MNVO called H2O which is similar to Simple Mobile provider. H2O wireless definitely uses HSDPA (3G) bands 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 on SGS II
Amazing phone but shocking poor video performance.
What I mean by this statement is that I previously owned the Galaxy S and loved the video performance and my girlfriend still has Galaxy S so I ran some tests.
The Galaxy S2 does obviously take clear video but the auto focus is a complete joke with how slow it takes to react and EXPOSURE is a complete failure.
What I mean with exposure issue is when you film into bright outdoor light then change your filming to indoors darker situation, it takes roughly 7-10 seconds to catch up. (Very Poor)
Other issues, when recording video on Galaxy S when I pressed the power button it would lock screen so you do not accidently zoom but on the Galaxy S2 it stops the video.
I am really hoping these issue I mention get fixed with future firmware upgrades and in my opinion it would be the best phone ever.
Boger X ...., 31 May 2011Are there any disadvantages of this SII samsung i9100 galaxy? .... Please information for tho... moreI have used this phone about 3 weeks and haven't found anything to complain. If you like android, this is the best device available; atrix, sensation and optimus 2x are inferior. However some users don't like the plastic build for a high-end phone like this and there are many topics in xda about problems in galaxy s 2. Also the touchwiz doesn't suit everyones tastes. But I haven't encountered any problems and would recommend this phone to everyone wanting the phone closest to perfection and the best android experience around.
SignSIN, 31 May 2011So guys i really would like to know about SGSII heating problem. So anyone who have this phone... moreI have had my GSII for 4 days now and have spent hours so far setting it up. I have had no heating problems whatsoever. It gets warm, but barely noticible. I have not played any games, so that may be the main thing causing the heating issue on other phones. Mine came with KE7 installed - don't know if Samsung did anything about the overheating in that update.
Also - on another note - the GPS works flawlessly. It finds my location and stays locked on it, on the GPS setting only (works in flight mode without need of cell towers).
I don’t know if you guys have noticed this or not…but when the SGS II first came out and was showcased at MWC the icons for Messages and Contacts were different... and now the retail version shows them to be exactly like how they used to be in TW 3.0..Why is that? Even in this review you guys can notice that in some pictures it’s exactly the same as MWC and in some picture it’s different! Why is that so? Can somebody please explain? Or is it because we get an option to change them..
help needed, 31 May 2011Yes it is quite impossible to hold it in your hands while it is so hot. If it gets so hot i ju... moreDude, these are really scary statements, making us doubt if buying or not this phone, it's this happening with every application you opened or just with specific ones?
SignSIN, 31 May 2011well, because of this heating problem, i dont know if i should buy this phone or go for arc...... moreYes it is quite impossible to hold it in your hands while it is so hot. If it gets so hot i just hold it from above. The worst part is around the camera. There should be the mighty processor underneath. Despite the heating matter i am very pleased with it, although i concidered arc as well. But for example i have shown picture shooting tests, whereby the mighty camera-phone-arc got beaten by the sg2. But what else does arc has that sg2 has not. On the contrary sg2 has several things/features arc does not have.
Guys, i from Malaysia. I have been waiting for this phone for a long time. I wanna buy this phone. But, like some users said . is Not good? cause heating? does the process slow ? does the image project clearly? The video and camera is the quality great?
let's hear your comments guys now that WHO/OMS rated the use of mobile phone as "cancer hazard". Last year the phone companies and mobile operators paid alot in my opinion to cover the obvious side effects for human health but the evidence is too much, all around the world people are complaining about headaches...no more lies!use handsfree!
This is interesting. Even Samsung's new Galaxy S II has AMOLED problem. This time it's yellow tint. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t =1079444
help needed, 31 May 2011Yes indeed it gets really hot. Like playing Medieval Castle for one game, the device is so hot... morewell, because of this heating problem, i dont know if i should buy this phone or go for arc... is it really so bad, like other people are saying that its almost possible to hold the device in hand? its unbelievable tho :D
SignSIN, 31 May 2011So guys i really would like to know about SGSII heating problem. So anyone who have this phone... moreYes indeed it gets really hot. Like playing Medieval Castle for one game, the device is so hot that I just in case quite playing. It gets warmer when surfing and doing stuff like that, but not so hot. Actually I do not know whether to return the device or not?! At the moment at least I am keeping it...Everything else works fine, besides the "pink spot" issue with the camera. On the other hand the "pink spot" appears only then when to take a picture for example a white wall. In case on ordinary pictures where the background is colourful the "spot" does not apper (or at least cannot be seen).
So guys i really would like to know about SGSII heating problem. So anyone who have this phone, can say something about it?
