Excerpt: The samsung galaxy s2 is a very problematic phone. It has a lot of problems. The battery life is very poor. Battery charging takes a lot of time The GPS didn't work from day one. The GPS keeps on searching.
Pros: Great Design , bright display, Great UI, External storage
Cons: GPS doesn't lock. This is a problem with many samsung phones, No updates or very slower updates, poor battery life. Keep a mobile charger if you are going on a long trip
This is an awesome product, great bang for your buck

Summary: i bought this phone because of the amount of storage space,space is important to me i had another version of the samsung phone it had very little space.This phone has lots of features alot of the aps are not applicable to our region.Im also disappointed that this phone does not have FM radio.
Summary: Really enjoying the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G. Usually I drive 52 miles 5 days a week from home to my job and can listen CNN live, France24 live and many Internet radios with the 4G without many interruptions, and this during my driving. I am a big smooth Jazz fan and connected with Pandora Internet radio, I can also listen the best of Smooth Jazz music in my car on my way to work and coming back home.

Summary: The wife and I are ecstatic about our new phones, especially considering we upgraded from a barely functional LG Optimus V. The storage is great and the functionality is so smooth. I was having trouble with the USB connection and did a lot of fruitless web searching before I finally decided just to try Samsung's e-mail tech support. Within a day, I had received all the info I could possibly need, including the thing that solved my problem.
Summary: I've had this phone for a few months and it really is a good one. Mine works off at&t towers and thats also a plus. Samsung needs to send out an update for the Android system though. Gingerbread is almost 2 years old. It seems like all the other modles of the Galaxy SII got updates except this one.
Amazing phone but buy an extra battery and carry it with you for back up.

Summary: First off, plan ahead like I did and get yourself another battery and wall dock charger. This thing sucks the juice even if you try and conserve by shutting off GPS, bluetooth, WiFi, etc. when not in use and tone down diplay settings and screen time out, etc. That way you always have a back up if your a heavy user. That being said, this phone is amazing and is the best out there(to my knowledge) for no contract folks.
