Those folder icons, are they default? This isn't looking good for Samsung in Apple's case if that's true.

nice looking at getting this phone! 1300NZD is the price tag, but i would like to know more about the battery, i consider myself a heavy of on-line things, twitter, Facebook, rss feeds.


If you wait till June we should be getting it a bit more locally for about $1000 so better off waiting till then also vodafone are getting it apparently eventually won't be till late june or july though i think.

Good review. I have just ordered this phone - coming from an iPhone 3G user. I can't wait. I'll have my sexy SGSII Monday. :blush:

Looks like an iPhone 4 running Android to me. Is that the look they were going for?


Ha ha.. Galaxy 2 is light years ahead of iPhone 4. It's not even worth comparing and the OS really doesn't look like anything like iOS because it's 10 times better and more useful not to mention smarter and doesn't require garbage iTunes and other stuff. If you ever used an Android phone and Google Apps, you would see what "magic" really is.

Aww man, I think this will be my next phone. I had my Nexus and loved it then got the Inspire 4G (Desire HD) and liked it but dunno, maybe it was too heavy? Now i'm rocking a WP7 Samsung Focus and while i miss the metalic feel, plastic does feel a whole lot lighter :D I think 4" is also the perfect size too. I also told my self that my next phone needs to have Super AMOLED!! The screen on the focus is gorgeous but WP7 still feels a little "young" now. I'll test it out again another time but for now going back to Android.

(Had an iPhone 4 - some guy traded me his for my Inpsire 4G, didn't like it though, seemed too small plus just didn't seem as "magical" as i thought it would be)

Not even going to bother.

I'm exploring a haunted house tomorrow with a mate of mine (previous Urbex pics here: http://robbiekhan.co.uk ) so expect an update demoing the HD camcorder being put to actual use instead of just some trees, cars and **** ;)

But the iPhone 4 changes "everything", again!
