[RedmondPie] Galaxy S II Review - Page 3

post #21 of 41
RGB AMOLED display! Samsung finally stopped cheating their customers by lying about the resolution. biggrin.gif


Looks like I can stop hating Galaxy S phones. Too bad its a low resolution 4.3" phone though. SAMOLED+ or not, its still going to be an inferior pixelated mess compared to the qHD Motorola Atrix.

Did Samsung not test their phones before shipping them out? Also, the ROM modding community for Samsung phones is mediocre at best compared to HTC.

My mothers HTC Desire and my HTC Dream are equal build quality to my best mates and my aunts Galaxy S, I never get why people say that...My HTC Dream has already half of the case near the SD Card slot coming open on its own for one thing.

I'm pretty sure what I saw in the vid was a front facing camera. I was hoping for the same. I would really like to replace my EVO with this phone.

Any flash on this thing yet? Seriously, my galaxy s can tell me where to go while I drive but can't be used as a simple flashlight...

The US Cellular Galaxy S has an LED flash.

The phone is too big for my tastes. I don't want anything larger than a 4 inch screen if possible. I hate how big many of the smart phones are getting. I don't need a freaking television in my pocket...

Oh and I hope they've taken the contrast down a notch, the galaxy S hurt my eyes (and so does the iphone 4's screen). I think my desire is just perfect (AMOLED version btw), it isn't too colourful but still very easy to use.

IIRC Samsung is the only company that is manufacturing AMOLED panels. So, I'm pretty sure the Desire has the exact same panel as any Galaxy S, in terms of color (obviously the size is different)

I am still using old phone... the ones that slides with QWERTY keyboard... I am really looking for my new upgrade!

4.2 inchesand only 800 x 400. No thanks, the new Motorola's look good, I'll wait till Apple makes their move to see what my next move is.
