Why is there so many variants of the Galaxy s2 all using different chip set ?
Galaxy s2 i9100 : the original galaxy s2 , the one that ruled all benchmarks .
Galaxy s2 i9100G : this variant is found in most parts of Asia , the original is only sold for a while before it was replaced by this , Samsung claims its because the original has heat issues , bulls**t , its just cheaper to produce . This version packs a TI Omap 4430 . Its the phone I am using now . BTW , my friend's original s2 feels faster and more solid .
T-Mobile Galaxy s2 : the variant I like the most , with a large 4.5 inch screen and a 1.5ghz snapdragon CPU
Galaxy R : one of the cheaper varient of the S2 , looks the same only the CPU is nvidea Tegra 3 and the screen is SLCD
Now galaxy S2+ ?
