m using this phone past 45 days and its just awesome,it very much responsive,it has tegra 2 inside. it stands tall in 10 gaming phones(not tabs) dual core with 1ghz,no bugs so far using stock rom,camera is just awesome and led light is good,thou it has s-lcd but the display is good if u are looking for a phone under 21k it is good i have been playing all hd and 3d games and it response is good battery is also good,its fun to play tegra optimized games.it takes time to charge like 3 hrs but stands well for 2 days with normal usage.but when the ram usage is more than 450 the scroll lags a bit for that i use fast reboot :D
Stuck in between sensation xl & galaxy R, which 1 should i buy?
Btw i'm using nokia c5.
I got this phone today, found its now with 4 GB of memory. Even if the packet shows 8 GB memory, it comes in 4 GB. Samsung is not doing fair business. Apart this phone is cool and outstanding.
tbh I MUCH prefer my motorola atrix over this. the ppi, the battery, and the internal storage are better, plus with teh right rom, i get 1080p video on my atrix ^.^
Parmeet, 25 Jan 2012Go for xperia ray or neo v .. samsung's battery lifeis much lower than sony ericsson Biggest Joke ever.......... Reality is Sony Ericsson's battery is pathetic when comparing to Samsung.. don't be a SE fan.. Take a luk at battery test
Many thanks to GSMArena to provide such a comprehensive review.
I have been using this device for quite sometime and all I have is praises to Samsung for finding the right product for the right market! Easily the best and most dependable dual-core android with a lot price tag (atleast in India).
Bottomline: If you are not a Geek (Android Rooting enthusiast), please choose SGR over O2X!
Wch wud be better "Galaxy SL" or "Optimus Black" or "Galaxy R"....??? M really confused....!!!

I do not use Wifi, or Bluetooth so they are always disabled. Bluetooth may have be used once in a week. With regards to 3G yes. I keep background apps data and auto sync disabled. I need to keep data services on since I get work msg on whats app ( 4 - 5 messages a day).Two hours in a day - during my break hours, I completely disable data.
I sync Gmail manually twice a day, so that there isn't much load on battery. I am using display brightness at 20% and screen light time out is 1 min.
Specifications looks good, planning to go for a smart phone, Galaxy R is worth to buy??? Please advise
