What about the MHL HDMI USB-OTG support?You shall give a good comparision about GPU in original S2 and S2 plus which is superior.DUAL CORE 1.2Ghz is not enough.Cores should be specified whether they are Cortex A9 or not.
spf, 07 Feb 2013has gorilla glass or not?of course it has gorila glass
can any one tell me the exact ram available and is there any option to move games and selected apps to external memory card
recently I thought of buying LG optimus l9 or htc one sv but they failed to impress me as the games apps can't be moved to external sd card
is this device has NFC? what is the exact model number
lastly is there any competitor of this phone, consider with ics or jellybean,nor the gb say s2...
Is there anyone who wants it instead of the first S2 i9100 .Buy this for what? Less storage , no usb otg, more expensive.
asphalt 7 does work on this device, and it runs pretty well.

I just passed the above comment for heavy HD gaming and full HD video playback experience only. Gaming aside this phone will be a great purchase for customer who want a budget friendly reliable phone. Once i too owned a Galaxy S2 I9100G and i must say it was my favorite and i love its design and slimness. I hope S2 Plus will follow the footsteps of the older sibling.

I am not saying that the S2 Plus is a useless handset but i just wanna convey the message to my fellow gamers that this phone is not compatible to all new HD game titles. If one is a hardcore mobile phone gamer than he should go for the S3, Note2 or even for the HTC Butterfly with Adreno 320 GPU. And BTW what HD games one will install on this handset with such a small screen and only 4 GB of inbuilt storage available for the user as another 4 GB will be used by the OS itself on this phone. Of course one can transfer game data files to your SD card but in order to do that one will have to root his device and that will void the warranty. And probably nobody will want to do that with his new smartphone. Galaxy S2 is past and the future is coming, the almighty Galaxy S4. Anxiously waiting for it.

Anonymous, 06 Feb 2013dude go to gl benchmark and cross check. it is more powerful than mali 400 mp gpu found in s2.GL benchmark can't make the GPU play HD games. In reality i have tested the games Asphalt 7 and Modern Combat 4 on my brother's Galaxy Grand and the handset refuses to run these games and then i installed the same games on my Galaxy Note 2 and they are working flawlessly. So how can you tell that Mali400MP of Note2 is weaker than Broadcom Videocore 4 GPU. And no company in the world will provide a more powerful CPU or GPU on a less expensive phone than their flagships(i.e. Note 2 and S3 in case of Samsung which have Mali400MP GPUs). So clear your facts bro and benchmark doesn't exactly tells about the precise performance of the CPUs and GPUs. No offense bro.

If the GPU is BROADCOM VIDEOCORE 4, then it is useless. I mean it can't play some HD games like Asphalt 4 and Modern Combat 4-Zero hour. The processor and GPU is exactly the same as Galaxy Grand. Don't go for this mobile if you are a gamer.
