Samsung Galaxy S II

AndroidFan

Peak Oil is real!
how is it compared to sgs-2 proccy.....?

iPad 2 has a dual core 1 GHz A5 processor based on Samsung's Orion designs and SGX543 GPU which is excellent...

But the Galaxy S II has a newer 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos processor and MALI 400 GPU which is faster than iPad 2's processor+GPU combo...

So, the Galaxy S II would probably out-spec even the unreleased iPhone 5...

no screen guard required dude..gorilla glass..
Nonetheless i still care bro! The screen is so lovely!

Buddy No branded cell phone company provides a screen guard....
Dont know about that. But came with Sony Xperia ARC! Bought for my sis last month. :)
Btw, came with lots of accessories as well!

Nope, wrong. Gorilla Glass is Scratch resistant not scratch proof. I'd always recommend applying a scratch guard on that beautiful screen.
True and point well made!

Congrats and Welcome to GS II family.
But didn't you receive the leather pouch at least?
Thanks pal. My first android phone and what a gr8 phone it is. Loving it. I thought that loudspeaker volume would be a problem as i was using Omnia HD previously. But, it seemed alright and just perfect for usage. Brilliant screen and perfect colors reproduction.
I haven't noticed that yellowish demon on the screen so far..! :p
Does that happen on particular background colors only?

And yeah came with leather pouch in package. Nice looking pouch and catches lot of attention as well! :D

Sanchar World, Atta Market, Sec-18, Noida.

So, closed the deal finally for 28,800 INR!! :) Got screen guard as well for 150 bucks.
Now looking for a Class 6 Micro SD. Asked the dealer about it.
Btw, i am using Class 2 Sandisk 8GB card on phone and so far no problems. I hope thats ok, as i haven't encounter any issues yet.

Yes, the Yellowish tint can be seen if background is Grey and also if brightness is set at Auto or Low.
For loudspeaker sound enhancement you can try to edit and increase the volume a bit by inputting *#197328640#. Though Omnia HD was a phone capable of producing sound of some awesome calibre from it's Stereo speakers, so it's basically unbeatable and not possible from I9100. Anyway enjoy the beast at it's full extent.
And you are welcome.
Regards.

Guys has the yellow screen issue been fixed? any word from samsung on this?

Just asking because I am waiting for my piece from the last two weeks and the univercell guy told me that they are awaiting new stocks...


Final check how is the galaxy s II compared to the sensation? The sensation is priced around 32.5k(inclusive of taxes and insurance) whereas the galaxy s II is 31.5k..
 

Terabyte

@ashwin : Its all about preferences here.
You want solid build, premium looks and the HTC Sense UI which is too good compared to crappy TouchWiz UI then get Sensation.
If you want the phone with best multimedia capabilities and the best camera phone and SAMOLED Plus then SGSII is for you.
Hope this helped ;)

Got mine last friday from ebay.in for 29,490 with free shipping. Absolutely loving it. So far haven't noticed the yellow tinge issue, though the fone does get a little warm during continous usage. Battery backup is also pretty good, not like wat people are reporting. Mine lasts over 1.5 days with moderate usage. I personally felt that the touch response is better than even the iphones. Navigation in the menu is silky smooth. Now on the look out for good apps for it.

Don't get bothered by that Yellowish tint problem as you will hardly notice it. And don't forget to post here about the good apps you find.
Regards.
PS- Read in XDA that KF3 is out in Kies and available for upgrade. Don't have the PC atm but gonna check it as soon as I get it back.

can phones be exchanged at hotspot???
and u got 5k off:shock: for a old 5800
Yep 5K for a old 5800XM! I was pleased to hear that and made sure to sell it then. :)
And apologies for mentioning it wrong. It was actually from The Mobile Store (GIP). But whatever, may it be Hot Spot or TMS, makes no difference! :p

I haven't really noticed that yellowish tint on gray backgrounds yet! :|
