Samsung Galaxy SII: The ultimate phone?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
To be honest I was always an iPhone fan and steered clear of Android, until I saw the specs and reviews on the SGSII that is. This phone seems to have the best of everything out there right now, including other announced but not released yet phones. This phone honestly may convert me to Android. Is there anything this phone can't do? Any downfalls at all? It looks simply phenomenal.

Lol, damn! One of the main reasons for me staying with the iPhone is that the speed and fluidity of flipping through menus and pictures at high speeds just felt great. The Android phones never did it for me, but this new one looks to be it.

I'm really hoping it comes to T-Mobile. It definitely looks like the superphone to beat. HTC's Sensation will be nice too, but I'm drooling over this thing.

Truth. Wake me up when they release the phones with Cortex A15's in them.

Because Apple holds all the patents on the super-smooth touch-screen tech they use for quite some time

Nah, it's just Android doesn't support full hardware acceleration yet on its UI. Come that essential update, every supported Android phone will be smooth as buttah. :3
