3 out of 5 eggsBe Aware

Pros: The photos and video this thing takes are truly outstanding. The display looks amazing. It performed great for the first 6 months.

Cons: The Galaxy S II GT-i9100 is an international version not intended for US distribution. You will not get warranty service from Samsung. You cannot access current drivers from Samsung's website either since it auto-detects the region of your IP address and sends you to the US portion of the website which does not list this model. Your best hope of support is foreign-based forums.

Other Thoughts: My phone has now developed an issue with the USB port on the phone where it will no longer allow it to connect to my computer. It also will not allow the phone to charge. As I have discovered, this problem is now popping up in several forums quite often for people in other countries. Samsung, in those places, claims it is water intrusion. I do not see that as my cause.

So now charging my battery must be done outside the phone. I managed to locate and purchase an external charger and two batteries on Axxxxn.

I found a fix, but it requires buying a new $12 PC Board from Hong Kong on exxy, opening the phone, and replacing it. I think I'll just use this phone as I am until it no longer works and consider myself schooled on buying international electronics - even if they are at a great price.

5 out of 5 eggsA 5 in any league.

Pros: Going for 2 years after release, this phone is benchmark for which IPHONE 4 suckers have been displace to 2nd in market, extremly fast procesing images, try Cam Scanner app with both, take 30 images to see what Iam talking about, watch Galaxy delivering on the spot as IPHONE lags behing by minutes in procesing the same amount of images, even in economy mode. Sound, Display, accesability, integrability, few phones are matchable to this even today. In freedom this one beats even the S3 due S3 is an enclosed Phone and this one is not. Love it and treasure it, mantain it correctly and you can hold with it for 3 years at least. I dont care about Upgradability, now days the mayority of upgrades take away rather than adding value to it. But surely there was one update already, look for it in Google. This still the BEST PHONE in the reachable market.

Cons: Keep the AMOLE Screen safe, very safe, if posible use a holster with it, or a wallet type case that protect the screen, dont take it to bed with you, netheir to the gym around weights without propper cautiones, the OEM AMOLE replacement for DYS price rounds an average of $140dollars, so either you get insurance for it, or can be bound to pay a big ticket to replace it your self as it happen to me, but well, it happens.. beware.

IPHONE4 Screen Replaced in my sons Phone $30.00 OEM
My S2 Screen Repair 114.00 OEM

Treated like a baby and you will be proud of its performance.


Other Thoughts: To NEWEGG staff, I have seen lots of prime products fall in rating due to people mixing product quality to service received.. bad service will always rate 1 or 2.

This Phone is a 5 by a Big Margin...
Let rate the product only, and provide a section to rate saervice that not affect negatively the rate of an excellent product.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing phone

Pros: Fast, screen size is perfect for my liking and full of color, rooting phone isn't too complicated, 1gig of RAM, fast 3g capabilities, has 16gigs onboard storage and up to 32gigs via micro sd, noise cancellation and very loud speaker output, good camera as well front facing, decent battery life.

Cons: No 4g capabilities, no built in stand ... oh well. Not compatible with T-Mobile.

Other Thoughts: For the record -- I own the USCC version of this phone. The hardware is virtually the same, only variants in cosmetics.

From holding the power button to a full boot it takes about 30 seconds, way faster than anything else I've touched. From what I hear Samsung is extremely lazy about updates -- but since you aren't contracted might as well root your phone! I'm running CM9 on mine and I lose just 2-4% battery life overnight, and about 55% battery with heavy texting through an 11 hour work day. It's amazing how fast this phone loads everything; the iPhone 4S is no match for this device.

5 out of 5 eggsGOOD SUPPLIER & PHONE

Pros: + product arrived quickly and in perfect condition
+ product lived up EXACTLY to description
+ works with USA (T-mobile) and UK (Three) SIM

* "DO NOT ACCEPT" seal was already broken; I accepted it anyway
* product does NOT SUPPORT 1700 Hz data channel - NO 3G on USA T-mobile
* product cannot be upgraded to ICS - yet
* charger was European mainland/Singapore pins - USA adapted included

Other Thoughts: Overall very satisfied with supplier and product; quick delivery and brand new so supplier gets good ratings, and the phone itself is fantastic.

Absence of ICS currently isn't a problem; SAMSUNG 2.3.3 has many of the useful ICS features except for STEREO recording - the absence of face recognition could even be a positive!

If ICS is NEVER available then ... but whose fault will that be anyway?

Strong recommendation

4 out of 5 eggsImpressive phone

Pros: Unlocked.

Can use any sim card you wish.

No contract needed.

Incredible phone for someone who wants more freedom better user tweakability than the iPhone provides.


Tons of free apps in the Android market.
Well built.

User accessible batteries and tons of battery choices from vendor other than Samsung.

Powerful with its 1 gig of ram as compared to the iPhone's meager 512 gig of ram.

Looks elegant and the plastic back cover adds significant protection from accidentally slipping while you hold it.

Allows for 3g coverage with t-mobile since it comes with the HSDPA 1700 band which is unusual to find in most smart phones.

Good reception even while indoors.

Because of HDSPA 1700, it can run in the geeks friendly Simple Mobile network.

Good sound level.

Unlike the iPhone 4s, it has a micro sd slot so you can port your music as you wish.

Too many to list.

Cons: Has no 4g capabilities, but I generally don't use 4g even in my phones that have it primarily because it is a drain on the batteries to leave it on. Although for watching videos it can be useful, but then you exceed data plans limits very rapidly.

Would have preferred a slightly bigger screen.

It has been surpassed by the world's top smart phone, The Samsung Galaxy S3 which has yet to be released in the USA.

Requires average to above average intelligence, unlike the iPhone.

If you do not value freedom avoid this phone. Steve Jobs will be glad to take care of your phone needs from his grave via the iPhone.

Other Thoughts: Would strongly recommend this phone for anyone seeking a phone that allows for user management and which promotes open standards in technology.

2 out of 5 eggsopen box item

Pros: Runs fast, updated to ics immediately.

Cons: I guess beware of seller brainstorm. The phone works but appeared to be an open box item. There was a dust and hair between the protective plastic film over the screen like it was taken off and then put back on. The phone also had vodafone software on it so it was a carrier version and not the international version. I didn't order an open box item and certainly didn't get a discount for one.

2 out of 5 eggsGood phone, but Caribbean baseband

Pros: Very good phone, but good luck waiting for updates.

Cons: Version of the band I got was Carribean... Now go figure, was this phone intended for the Latin America? Probably. will it limit your phone in comparison with North America versions? Probably. And I am still on 2.3.4 and good luck waiting for updates. Seems like nobody cares updating unlocked Samsung phones...
