Summary: I was very excited to get this phone and ended up printing a return label for it today. I learned the hard way that from now on it is a good practice to contact the seller and ask exactly what you are receiving. The phone I received came in a generic samsung s II box and did not have the same back as all the other T mobile Samsung ii phones I have seen online.
Summary: ...so I 1) must remove the battery from the phone to charge it and I 2) must load data onto the phone by saving it onto a micro SD card then putting the card into the phone. The phone as a phone works great and the apps work very well. The phone was unlocked as promised.
Samsung's flagship phone delivers an awesome user experience!

Summary: Bought one of these used because of the good ratings, and kept it for 2+ years with daily use until I upgraded to the Galaxy S5. Probably the best Android phone you can get for comparable price, and it kept me as a loyal customer for their newer product which also exceeded my expectations. Nowadays it's a bit slow for running modern OS (Android 4.0+) but can still play the most CPU intensive games.
Ranks only one star and that's because it is a "no-contract" phone

Summary: This phone has been unreliable from the beginning. The phone is on its last days and just about 1-year old. Issues: Texts come and go with no reliability (no texts for days and even weeks, then 100 at once) Service would drop without cause, reboot, still down then suddenly on again. Size - pretty large and not comfortable in the hand.
Summary: I bought the Galaxy S II from Virgin Mobile and I have zero complaints with the carrier, I do have complaints about the phone. For some strange reason, it turns off and on as if it has a mind of its own. The lag from the keyboard is terribly annoying because I type and the letters appear a few seconds after I finish typing an entire sentence.
Summary: In the beginning, there was a galaxy full of Android devices, and the great Google saw that it was good... But then, Samsung must have seen the same galaxy and thought they could do better. Fresh off the modest success of the first Galaxy S lines in 2010, Samsung's S II series serves not to follow on its predecessor's coattails, but to blaze its own trails.
