Still top of the line. Is there anything that even slows that phone down yet?

No it isn't old. Going to be about a year or longer before the software catches up. Then you could just overclock it to stay ahead or just sit back and enjoy a device that would probably run everything well if not great for 2 years.

No way, it's still one of the best if not best phone hardware wise. Has one of the fastest processors and GPUs out atm. It's also getting ICS update Q1 2012. Keep in mind Galaxy S2 is SAMSUNG's flagship phone of 2011 like the Droid Razr and Rezound was for Motorola/HTC. Galaxy Nexus was just a google device with Samsung, not Samsung's flagship line.

At least someone understand that the Nexus wasn't Samsungs best phone of 2011.

That would be the Samsung Galaxy Note or the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE Skyrocket HD (what a mouth full)

The Galaxy S II is second to these. I know. I have the galaxy S II on ATT tongue.gif

It's still amazing and top of the line.

I just got the GS2 too..my only complaint about this phone was the screen resolution. But turns out, that can be fixed with this app LCD RESOLUTION. Make sure your phone is rooted, and run this app. Makes the screen much better. No longer is this phone made for the Blind. Improves the screen to HD Resolution! I set mine to 200

The Nexus is googles flagship phone and is the full android experience and thats why its the first phone to get ICS. Nexus tops SG2 imo.

all that does is change the DPI.....

resolution is the same.

nothing special other than making it harder to read small text.
