"The Best!!!"on by sonelone
Pros Performance, Screen, Design, Camera, Battery, Just everything in general
Cons Plasticy body(I would have preferred soft-touch plastic or metal, even though it would have added a tiny bit of weight)
Summary This phone is absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to anybody looking for a smartphone, first-time and experienced users alike. There is absolutely no lag on this phone whatsoever and flash plays perfectly, contrary to what Apple says. Ditching my iPhone 4 for this device was the best decision ever! The screen is absolutely brilliant. Don't let the low pixel density fool you! Colors pop, are not over-saturated like the OG Galaxy S, and everything is incredibly crisp. The battery life is also amazing and I get two days with medium use, as much as with the iPhone 4. I don't understand why CNET is taking points off for things like the lack of a dedicated hardware camera key and the microSD and an alleged call quality issue. There is no call quality issue whatsoever and the lack of a camera button is more of a personal thing. Some people don't like too many buttons on their phones. The microSD thing is also a very small issue. Also they only gave this phone 8.0 on performance and design. It is the thinnest phone on the market everywhere except Japan and 8/10 on performance is absolutely ridiculous. This is the fastest phone in the world and probably will be for another year or until Tegra 3 phones come out.
Pros Call Performance, Audio Performance, Multimedia, Web Performance, Battery Life, Easy to use UI,
beautiful AMOLED Plus Screen, Premium Looking Hardware Design, Easy access four hubs short cut,
Camera Quality, and more!!!!
Cons Nothing to complain with this device. I don't know how much I have to expect from my Galaxy S 2. This is the greatest device I've ever had and none of smart phone devices cannot be close to Samsung Galaxy S 2. I cannot go back to iPhone due to Galaxy S 2.
SummaryCNET should have give 5 stars for Samsung Galaxy S 2. I read about Cons from CNET Call quality better. I am not sure how they came up with this???? Call Quality and performance are superb!!! I don't know CNET people checked properly.

Super AMOLED screen
Web browsing is super fast
Bigger screen yet thinnest phone in the World
UI and touch screen is incredibly smooth
Cons Service provider screwing US buyers
Summary The editor took points off for call quality, external camera button, and SD card placement? is she serious? This lady was probably paid by Apple, I will never take this reviewer seriously in the future.
Pros Marvelous super amoled plus screen that outshines all other phones and makes others do a double take when they glimpse it. It is gorgeous.
1080p video recording and playback. So far I have played a couple of 1080p movies on it , super fast and responsive
Summary The iPhone is now second best.
Pros -Super AMOLED screen plus
-Bluetooth and real multitasking
-1080 p recordin
-flash browsing smooth and no lag
Cons -Battery life is ok but not amazing still pretty decent
Summary Not sure how CNET gave this phone a lower rating then the iphone 4 seems like they are the only site that did? Makes absolutely no sense.actually they designed the super amoled screen and dual core processor with maximum battery life in mind, for me the phone easily lasts throughout the day.
This replace my iphone, I now have more flexibility customization and better use of my phone.
