very good functionality plus poor battery in an average shell.

Excerpt: This phone has a lot to offer but I couldn't fall in love with it because of the handling and battery problems. I bought it 8 months ago as a everyday tool and i use almost all its functionality. Although it is very light and thin , i would prefer it would have been a little thicker and had bigger battery. Also the thicker phone would fit in hand better.
Pros: very good display, very speedy, good photo and video, thin and light, a lot functionality
Cons: poor handling, poor battery life, poor text input
Excerpt: I have owned the phone over a month now, i was an iPhone user for 2 yrs before this. I use my phone to make calls, messaging, music and occasional camera usage to take some photos. The s2 is pretty good at doing all this but not what i expected from this old flagship. The music quality was surprisingly bad through any good headphones .The text input and touch sensitivity if frustrating and slow coming from the iPhone.
Pros: Lightness, Customisability of android, Future update to JB, Camera
Cons: Music quality, Touch Sensitivity, Text input
Summary: I wish I would've waited to get the Galaxy s3 instead because of the video and image quality but this is good for the time being! :) the s2 is good but there will always be better phones out there.
Summary: So far I really like this phone.... I got tried of paying AT&T so much money every month. As a former Iphone user I think this is comparable or even better than the Iphone 4. Its very fast and where I live the boost coverage has been pretty good. I think the best feature of this phone is the screen it beautiful. I also like the ability to add a 32GB Micro SD card. You can put movies and music right on the card and the phone will play them.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone has plenty of features to offer such as: -A large 4.3 INCH screen -This phone is light -Talk time is large at 8 hours, and standby is 400 -It comes with 16 Gigs of internal storage, and you can add an additional 32 GIGs with a micro SD card. -It’s got GPS navigation and NFC, also known as Near Field Communication. -With NFC you can use it with Google Wallet, etc.
Summary: This phone is nice for boostmobile, but it is very expensive for what it is. Everything seems to work fine, but the professional reviews exaggerate several of its features. For example, reviews pretty unanimously rave about the camera. Yes, it is good for a phone, but it is only equal to a $50 stand-alone digital camera. The wifi radio is weak, since my routers produce very strong signals that everything with wifi rate as 5 bars consistently.
Summary: I love my S11. Big screen,light weight and no contract. Save me alot of money. Didn't jump on the iphone band wagon because its all about name(Apple). If you are all about saving money then get this phone.
Summary: Overall, I'm delighted with the phone. VERY IMPORTANT: As of the date of this review (21 Sep 2012), the I9100 will only get Edge on T-mobile USA because it doesn't receive 1700 WCDMA. If you want 3g/"4g" you'll have to go to ATT or another carrier that uses the frequencies supported by the phone. These are documented at the Samsung webstie: [...
