Good: ????? ???????, ???? ????????. ???. ? ????? !!!
Comment: ???????? ???? ??????? !
Good: Still a very high spec phone even tho it's over a year old
Bad: Samsung OS updates are so slow - even on unlocked devices
Comment: The phone it's self is still a market leader, the specs are still toe to toe with a number of new phones being released even though it's over a year old, simple to use even if it your first touch screen or android phone as this was for me, ive now had this since November 2011, I'm still happy with it.
The only bug bearer for me is the way Samsung release android OS updates....they are not the fastest at doing this
So if your after a phone that you want the latest OS you need a pure GED (Google experience device) phone i:e (Nexus) or be happy to sit and wait for Samsung to delivery direct to you.
most android phones will update for 3 android OS cycle releases, therefore it's possible that the new Jelly bean WILL come out on the s2...making this again the best phones out & still a market leader....so what you wanting for
Good: So far so good. No problems and fun to play with.
Bad: Only got it yesterday, so not enough time to find any bad points so far
Comment: A brilliant phone. I love it already.
Comment: Absolutely brilliant phone, probably the best phone i have ever had. I had this phone as a replacement for the downright awful orange San Francisco II which I had nothing but problems with. The big, high resolution screen is amazing and the processor is blisteringly fast. Even the 3g internet can give my wifi connection a run for its money in terms of page loading speed. Overall a brilliant phone and definitely the best one i have ever had, makes the iphone i had look rubbish.
Good: Speed, Android, Design & More
Bad: No Qwerty
Comment: Not for me but still a good choice, especially with OK replacements of Qwerty keyboards for e.g. you can change to keyboards like Swype which are pretty cool.... The design is much better than Galaxy S III Though
Good: Easy to use, fast, responsive
Bad: Battery life, unable to connect to hidden networks
Comment: Best phone I've had (also the envy of my wife who has the iPhone 4s, nothing but trouble). Whilst the battery life is not great, can probably only get about 10 hours when used heavily. No issues connecting to wlan. However, I do like to hid my Wireless network...have had to stop doing that as the S2 will not connect to a hidden network (not a major problem)
Other than that, it does everything I could possibly want it to
Good: thin, light, smooth running, and powerful
Bad: battery life. seriously, if u buy 1 get a bigger battery for it
Comment: a great phone. great gfx. amazingly easy to use even when upgraded to 4.0 ICS
Good: gorilla glass virtually unbreakable, good visuals,
Bad: think ive got a dud phone as so many probs...cant connect wifi..keeps getting error messages... pc says theres no pics on camera!!..sends mms messages only..screen freezes and wont react....latest is worse in that its sending text message was being sent to wrong person and also when i`m receiving a text its saying its from another person!!!...wont open videos when people send them....even on silent mode its still making noises when receiving emails!!
Comment: dont think i would have chosen this phone in hindsight but lets see after repairs!!!
Good: Nothing really. Only the camera.
Bad: It will not connect to a wireless network even when the router is
