I can only give you my opinion on the Samsung Galaxy S2 I have one alone side a mucking about x10 (for some TripNfuN) :P

At first I thought, love how thin and light it is. Ok the back cover does feel a bit cheaper quality plastic than the x10, but sure no biggy.
Just remembered just how terrible Orange UK had customised it with wallpaper that looked like it belonged to a Nokia 6110 from so long ago. Nice way to show of Super Amoled+ (NOT)
When I turned it on and played with a bit you can feel the amazing speed, even stock.Flashed a villain rom or 2. Loved it but really missed the MIUI.
So thanks to a certain bmarko not too far from here I flashed his MIUI and wowwww!!!! Is all I can say. Super speed, super smooth.
Very little doesn’t work even though it’s still in beta.
Quadrant Score with about 20 apps installed 3660 on 3rd run maxing 70+ FPS. :o
Loved that you can unlock it in seconds with a free app from the market!
Probably the only bad thing is the screen, and yes I also thought it was gonna be its best feature. In maybe ways it is, big clear sharp, best blacks ever!
Downside, is a very very narrow sweet spot. Unless you’re looking at it square on there is a blue tint over my screen. Its ruins an otherwise excellent phone.
I was just about to send it back and swap it for a Sensation until I read there were touchscreen issues with them, so I kept it my SGS2.
Maybe some of the guys above can tell me if they have the same issue? (Lancez and Co.)B)

EDIT: This is the unlock i used here

actually, the blue tint is AMOLED's signature, i'll never buy another cellphone without THE blue tint, LOL...... as cyberman mentioned, SGS II has it's down side, but face it, nothing is perfect, and if you are looking for perfection, you are certainly living on a wrong planet :lol: it's all based on personal preference, just pick the one you fall in love with.


LOL, Lancez & Co. ?

there is a free method to unlock the SGS II on XDA and SGS II's bootloader is not locked, or else, there won't be many custom kernels. but if you are looking at north america verion, then you won't have as much fun as euro verion.

about the 3D crap, i'd say it's purely a marketing thing. i wouldn't risk my hard earned money just to be their lab rat. well, my 2 cents tho.

the reason why i asked about the unlock because BELL has the gsm phone and i wanna unlock it for Rogers which is also GSM but as i stated buying a unlocked they'll charge you $200 more just to make more money on phone :/ anyways you guys are right its not worth 3D crap and all this non-sense but what about customer service of samsung and the device durability lets say if i dropped it not too hard will it crack like how x10 cheap flimsy hardware does?

don't know about samsung services in canada, but seems alright in the states tho. the device is pretty solid and i haven't dropped it since i bought it 3 days ago (knocking on wood), but from the past experience, samsung phones are pretty solid, dropped my i8000 on concrete couple of times, few scratchs was all i got.

Best advice... Wait a few weeks for the iPhone5 or get the SGS II.
All other phones are ugly.
