@dfgdf : Atleast I am concerned with what I want unlike you showing more interest in articles regarding Apple products and commenting on others' personal opinion. What does that make you, an ape? or a pig?

Iphone is a great phone but its too boring of a UI for me. If the iphone has a problem it exits the app instead of having a box pop up that says force close, basically the same. Dropped calls happens on iphones and android phones, U probably just have at&t. Sgs2 has no lag because android is still getting better.

lol then you should change your user name, just saying.

Also don't give me that crap dude, I know all to well that the iphone can lag and has force closes. It just doesnt tell you it has, you can open an app and for no reason at all it will just send you back to the homescreen. That is the iphone's way of FORCE CLOSING you.

And Dropped Calls? Hahahaha oh right the iphone 4 atenna issue was all just made up. Please, the iphone and every generation iphone has been made famous for having bad call quantity, bad signal strength, and dropped calls.

Wth... No major difference in interface of all four version... how people survived with same lame interface for these many years.... and people are still crazy about it... And on top of that apple has all guts to sue Samsung for this bulls**t icons interface which other smartphone were having for years.... People gladly accepted iPhone 4 despite of many technical glitches in basic requirements... I know by writing all this I can't stop people buying another piece of crap and making it super hit again, but can't really help it.....

I agree with you, I AND YOU would be boring by the same interface. YOU AND I. But the average people who has found a simple interface he can quickly understand, and found some funny applications, this average doesn't want to change : he has something that works for him. he doesn't need to use many hours to understand how it works, how to configure it, how to invert the mistakes he have made...

So I don't want Iphone because it would bore me...but it's not a problem, it's a selling argument for Apple ! And that's why you maybe (probably) have a Androphone and probably I will have one...but not my father and your aunt. Wrong ?

The Iphones might not have any lag but it's because the phone doesn't do anything. You have a phone with a bunch of icons so why would it have lag and the battery last longer because nothing is running on the phone.The sgs2 doesn't have lag.

sgs2 doent have lag because it is randomly shut off or because the battery died after 2 hours. it doesnt have time to lag.

That's a really uneducated and foolish comment.

The SGS2 does not lag as much as other phones because it is at the cutting-edge of processor and graphics speeds, while the apps and programs that can be run on android are still optimized to be run on as many phones(including low-end, 600MHZs) as possible, and thus are not that resource-hungry.

Just wait 2 years, and SGS2 will start to lag, because by then the market's average processor speeds would've went up, and most programs take more resources for more functionality, higher resolutions etc.

If you don't know much about Androids, just think how the iPhone 3GS used to be lightning-quick, but after the iPhone 4 was released and most dev's got more liberal with their apps' resource usage, the same, albeit updated, apps would run much slower on the 3GS, making it sluggish.
