Pros I guess works okay as a phone. Just not as anything else. And I DO mean anything.
Cons Nothing works consistently. Email works 5% of the time. Facebook and any other internet applications the same. Text has a regular error -- a size error and then a download button, but nobody has ever successfully downloaded those text (google it).
Summary Terrible phone. I bought this because I hate iTunes, but I've learned that it's better to have a reliable device (iPhone, most other phones that aren't this one) than to have better software. Software is great, but if your phone simply does not work then it really doesn't matter how great the software is. If your device can't connect to email or the internet or receive texts, then your device is a lemon, and that's what I have in the Samsung Galaxy II. I've never written a device review in my life, but I'm writing them for this one, because I really wish I had read a review like this before I outsmarted myself and chose this worthless rock over the iPhone. I'm no apple fanatic, and in fact I bought this because i wanted to get off the Apple products, but man, what a huge mistake. Huge huge mistake. Don't make the same one. I can only blame myself, and I'll probably crack and go buy an iPhone soon. Dont make the same mistake as me.
Pros big screen. fast on wifi.
Cons hard to connect to bluetooth headset without it being unlocked. battery goes fast.
Summary I ended up putting a protective case on it, but then it would not fit into any holster. i finally found a "Bulldog Cell Phone Concealed-Carry Holster" at cabelas" it is bigger, but did the job. the holsters are made for small guns, but work perfect for these phones. Holsters also come in pleather. my phone also has a hard time connecting to my bluetooth headset.
"Great Phone!!!"on by DiceOmega
Pros Responsive, fast, tons of storage space.
Cons data connection is 4G, not 4G LTE.
ALL stock samsung batteries are garbage, all u guys that complained about battery life should buy a rayovac battery, i listen to pandora all day at work and still have battery left at the end of the day.
Summary Great phone highly recommend it if u want a decent phone, and can't afford the S3 or S4.
"One of the best!"on by cliff5550
Pros -Beautiful large screen.
-Fast and responsive touch screen and processing of apps.
-Solid call connection.
-Locks into wi-fi connection and holds.
-Use for calling, texting, games, browsing, video watching.
Cons Like all cell phones, battery could last longer. But not bad.
Summary Surprised to see negative reviews. I have had NO bad experiences with my S2. I really enjoy using mine and highly recommend it.
Pros Big screen. That's about it.
Cons 1. Restarts itself randomly.
2. Wifi connects randomly even after I've turned it off, consuming battery life.
3. Mail app CONSTANTLY ALWAYS HANGS. I've kept fully up with ALL updates and update regularly.
Not enough space to provide all cons.
Summary Worst phone I've ever had. In addition to the cons above, there are others:
4. Screen unacceptably unresponsive
5. Making a phone call WAY too complicated
6. Not even a LITTLE intuitive
7. Constantly adds little "updates" with Android updates that screw up the small amount of things on the phone that DID work properly before the update
8. Battery life is **** poor and pathetic (PPP)
9. Part of 8 above is attributable to all the "features" that turn on on their own (wifi, 4G) when I don't need them and have SPECIFICALLY turned them off
In short: I can't imagine that if the 2S sucks this bad that any of its successors will suck less.
I will never buy a Samsung product again.
