EXCELLENT

SleepingOz has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

The BEST phone I ever used so far! Encounter no issue with it until now. The SuperAMOLED Plus is just awesome. Camera's good as well. Battery for an Android handset is fair. I'm waiting for CM9 to boost this beast even more! The only phone that will beat this beast will be the GSIII

Good specs, very smooth use on the internet but call quality poor

erkansaner has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I have used it for 3 months. Perfect internet communication device, perfect for browsing, any other option, for example a laptop had become useless for that purposes if you have this. Most people mentioned perfect features, I am OK with them. Not a single freeze in Android throughout my use in 3 months. I had two problems one is a major one. Minor one is the sound quality when you listen music, it is very good, but is not good as it was in Samsung Galaxy S (my previous one) and definite as Iphone 4s (I compared it). For me this is a shame for Samsung an Electronic giant and a chip manufacturer.

The major one deserves another paragraph, "outgoing sound quality during phone calls". An echo in my voice, sometimes metallic, sometimes deep, nearly unintelligible by the listener. Funny thing that, you do not really notice this easily since it is the other people suffering this problem. People complain after a while and then you can notice. I checked other parameters that can be the cause of the reason like reception, the GSM operator, and then give it back the service, they said they have changed the microphones but it was not any good. Now I am not using Galaxy S 2.

Build quality 9/10 Not perfect or special but there is no fault of defects in the material and the design.
Reception 9/10
Call quality 4/10 I wrote in the review, it is the awfull outgoing sound quality, your friends may be suffering this. Call them while in the same place and switch the phones and compare the sound quality you are hearing.
Internet 10/10 flawless, years ahead from any high end smartphone (specially any non-android phone)
Multimedia 8/10 Sound chip is not as perfect as it was in Samsung Galaxy S.
Camera 9/10
UI speed 10/10
Everyday usage 9/10
Text input 10/10 I recommend Swift keyboard from the market.
Display 9/10 A little higher resolution would satisfy me for 5 years : )
Battery 8/10 Not worse than any other highly functional smartphone.

Pros

  • several

Cons

  • outgoing sound quality during phone calls
  • sound chip

A really fast and complete package.

AlonShtrafun has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I took this one after cheking both him and the new RAZR. I love taking photos, so the RAZR's camera was voted out. The screen is magnificent and the interface is fast. The interface shines in the notifications panel, and shames itself when organizing apps. Other than that it's balanced, stable and even has some resizable widgets.

The build is good but plastic all around. The speaker and the camera perform at 100%. The headphones produce some good sounds, although I would still take on my old Xperia X10 for that. Plays every movie I try with it. Connects through wifi to the computer. Samsung's own content is a nice touch + the FM radio is a huge bonus for me.

I don't think there is something else to say. If you hate Itunes like I do, this one is a safe bet.

The phonewhich meets my needs

Nesh13 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I saw alot of people here mentioning that the battery life sux. In the beginingI was estitating to get this phone but after using Juice Defender software on my Motorola Milestone, I knew that it will boost up my battery life in this phone too. And the result is perfect. I can play my Drag Racing game for almost 3hrs non stop and my battery still shows 36 to 40 percent. I'm running on a custom ROM which gives megreat results on all the applications and performance. My best Benchmark is 6545 in Antutu. Guys, if you really want great performance, than you should upgrade the firmware and add in custom application to boost the speed of your phone which will not affect the hardware of your phone.

This is what a smartphone should exactly be!

bonparisien has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Dual-core processor equates to unbelievably fast reaction times. It's super slick and it's super quick. It's incredibly thin and it's very light. The Super AMOLED Plus screen is the best mobile screen I've ever laid my eyes on. The call quality is great. The camera takes awesome shots and the 1080p video recording is a dream! It plays any kind of video format that I throw at it. The pre-loaded applications right out of the box are a welcome bonus. Even the battery lasts surprisingly long!

  • Can not edit song details
  • Can not delete vedios from vedios app
  • No history on the browser
  • The volume rocker is on the left side so when you open the camera and hold the phone in landscape (the touch and home buttons on the right)the volume rocker which is zoom buttons here become under the phone so you can not see them when you hold it in the other landscape (the touch and home buttons on the left the camera will be on the right which is a thing i am not used to
  • When shooting a vedio you can not pause shooting and then continue shooting like Nokia N8 and the vedio editor export vedio in 720p

Technology Leader

SmartTouch has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

It's the best one currently on the market. Display, camera, performance, functions, design, size, weight, it's leader on all these specs. It's famous and it's not extremely expensive. It is number one on sells. A pleasure to use and hold. The battery life is not better than the competition, but it's not worse, so it's not a minus, and there are a lot of battery saving options.

Build quality 10/10 Thin, light, premium feel, beautiful and dark look.
Reception 10/10 No problems at all, Wi-Fi signal can seem weak, but once you connect, there's no dropping from the network.
Call quality 10/10 Great sound quality, and the other side can hear you very good.
Internet 10/10 Best phone for browsing the internet, because of the display, the hardware acceleration, it deals great with heavy sites and HD flash.
Multimedia 10/10 Great audio quality and best phone for watching movies because of the display again and the monster stock video player.
Camera 10/10 Solid photos and best Full HD recorder.
UI speed 10/10 Unmatched performance and functional UI.
Everyday usage 10/10 No major problems at all.
Text input 10/10 It has Swype(the most advanced keyboard) preinstalled.
Display 10/10 Perfect display with the most gorgeous colors.
Battery 9/10 It could be a little more better.

Pros

  • Everything.
  • Even the SIM card is hot-swappable.

Cons

  • You must remove the battery to get the SD card.

The SGS2 is a great smartphone, the battery life isn't that good, but as someone who works next to a computer all day long that isn't a big problem as it can be charged via USB cable..
The display is just AWESOME and the camera is good too.

amsung Galaxy S II is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone. It comes with the newer Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, and an even larger screen at 4.3 inches of Super AMOLED Plus goodness. The Galaxy S II upgrades the camera to 8MP and adds an LED flash to it, together with 1080p video recording. A 1.2GHz dual-core chipset is running the show so as to deliver a fine performance without any hints of lag

Dropped my Atrix 4G for the SGS G2

I don't regret dropping Motorola for this equipment. It works and works well, not available is the US as of yet. Easily modified software and community support is amazing. This beast is fast and responsive, and overclocked to 1600MHZ dual core. I am amazed every single time I compare this phone to my old Atrix 4g, it absolutely blows that peice of junk out of the water. I will never again purchase a phone from a carrier store, or MotoFAIL for that matter.

Samsung Galaxy S II Best Smart Phone Currently Available in India

AMITAVA MITRA has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I am Using Samsung Galaxy S II since last 28 Days & it works Awesome. Its Main Camera, Secondary Camera both are Better then All Phone in Same Class like Google Nexus, LG Optimus 2x, HTC Sensasion & Sony Ericson Arc. Best in class Super AMOLED+ Display & Amizing Full HD 1080P (30FPS) Video Recording & Playback. Inbuilt storage is more than Enogh as it comes with 16GB On Board Memory. Its Dual Core 1.2GHz Processor helps your phone usage fastest even in Web Browsing.

It has Just two Negetive Point, i.e. Poor Battery Life in 3G or 3G+ Network & Average Sound Quality through Packaged Head Phone.

But in All, That Is The Best Smart phone available in India, I have Personally Test Nokia X7, Sony Ericson ARC, Apple iPhone 4G, Samsung Google Nexus S, LG Optimus 2X & HTS Sensation....These all are lower in all specs than Samsung Galaxy S II.

So If you are ready to spend Rs.31000 then go for this Only.

It's a good smart phone it's a very user friendly I m so surprised to use this device. Its the best phone that I hav used. Its too slim and light weight. I love its super amoled+ display. I was nt a fan of samsung touch viz. But the new touchviz (ver4.0) is OK. Its too fast. I luv this phone. I dnt knw why sammy didnt use 12mp cam in this amzing device coz evry new phone out ther hav 8mp cam

Samsung Galaxy S2

Great device. Battery life isn't fabulous. Also, wifi reception is weak. I have had difficulties with text messages on my device. I receive multiple duplicate text messages as the phone doesn't send a acknowledge receipt to my wireless provider. Build quality is better than past Samsung handsets, but still is not on par with other "premiere" manufacturers. Solid device.

The Best Smartphone Ever

omershlush has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

This Smartphone better than iPhone and htc.
good camera.
very speed.
nice design.
fast internet.
Build quality is low because very cheap materials.....
the new Touchviz 4.0 is awsome.
finally i think this phone is too much big. 4.3" is too much. 4" is good.
