My Samsung Galaxy S2 Review– Personal Experience


Last month, I bought the newly released Samsung Galaxy S2. After using it for a month, here is my short review

NOTE : I am reviewing my phone, after some hands on experience on similar smartphones like Sony Ericsson Arc and LG Optimus 2X

What’s Good :

  • Super AMOLED display is crystal clear. Pictures are ultra sharp and clear. You will love just to see the screen.
  • Gorilla Glass – Put it in you pocket, scratch it, place it on floor, whatever you do, the screen is clean without a single scratch.
  • Ultra fast – 1.2 GHz Dual Core processor on a phone . Previously I didn’t switch to an android phone, because of its performance issue in phones with lower processors <800 MHz. But this is stunningly fast.

    1) Scroll a folder with 200 pictures in it – It is fast and shows all thumbnails
    2) Scroll with 250+ contacts – It is fast
    3) Play any 3D game – It is fast and doesn’t lag.
  • 16 GB built in memory and 1GB RAM (Normally you don’t need a separate SD card)
  • 2 MP front camera which is very good for self shot and video calls
  • 1080p video recording is very good.
  • As Light as feather – Just 116 grams, when you first hold the phone you will say ‘Hey it is very light weight’
  • Touch is very good, touch is very response, accurate and smooth. It feels like liquid.
  • Some good features in Samsung’s Touch Wiz 4.0.
    1) Shortcut to disable data network
    2) Lock screen wallpaper
    3) Customizable home screen and app screen.

What’s Not So Good : (I have not mentioned BAD, intentionally Smile)

  • Battery Life :
    1) If you use it heavily it stands only for 1 Day. 
    2) But on moderate use it stands for 2 Days (Good for a smart phone)
    3) If you use it just for few calls, it will come even for 4 Days.
  • Head Phone :
    1) Headphone quality is not bad, but for a smart phone of this price it doesn’t match.
    2) Also it doesn’t fit properly in my ears.
  • Picture Quality : 8 MP Camera quality is good, but not great.
  • No Camera Key : As we have used a separate camera key in many phones. It looks odd.
  • You need a really big pocket to put this phone – 4.3 inch phone is very difficult to manage, if you travel a lot.
  • Some firmware issues, rarely doesn’t connect to Internet and doesn’t charge up and heats up – But all are fixed just by a restart. Hope Samsung will release a firmware update.

Verdict : Best android phone yet or simply the best smart phone yet. To the envy of iPhone.

Some Tips :

  • Don’t charge often, Do a full charge when the battery goes down fully. This will improve the battery’s performance

  • Hari's racy screenplay right from first scene
  • Hari's dialogue
  • Some intelligent scenes
  • Dhanush : Looks more matured than his previous films

Negatives:

  • Resembles some Hari's previous films

Verdict : If u like racy action movies, u can enjoy Vengai. Else, not your kind of movie.

Best PC configuration for Photo and 3D Work (Photoshop and 3Ds Max)

Important things for Photo and 3D work:
  • You need the fastest Processor possible
  • You need a lot of RAM (6GB Min) – You need 64 bit version of Windows.
  • Graphics card for Photo editing and 3D works like Photoshop and 3Ds Max are little different from gaming graphics cards.
    Graphics Options : -Nvidia Quadro 
    -ATI FirePro
    (Higher Config cards for Rs.20,000 like Nvidia Quadro 2000 are very good in performance)
    These cards are not good for Gaming.
  • You can also use gaming graphics card also like GTX 560 or ATI HD 6850. With this You can play games also, but gives lower performance in Photo and 3d works.
