    I had the galaxy s one, and now the galaxy s 2,and also the sensation.

    The galaxy s 2 is better, it's more pleasing. The sensation just works better tho its more functional.

    I'd still get the galaxy to coz its just sexier

    Anyone on here have the s2? What's it like? Have samsung rectified the problem's that appeared in the first one regarding the slow OS and GPS not working?

    I'm so close to getting an S2. I was torn between that and the Sensation but the S2 is just more aesthetically pleasing
    The S2 is far better than the sensation and it's GPS is flawless. It tells me which way I'm facing on a street! It's my first smartphone so maybe that's the same with all smartphones but regarding this GPS issue it works fine.

    OS is brilliant and interface is great too. The back cover looks cheap but then you find out it will not scratch like other phones do.

    Maybe it's just your phone? I don't know but honestly my phone's GPS is the thing it helps me so much :awesome:

    I traded my first S2 in since it got so damn hot for no apparent reason and my second one seems to be perfect

    Anyone know much about the Orange Mote Carlo?
    Is it similar to the San Fran in that it's easily unlockable and less importantly rootable?

    There was also a guy who bought a Nexus S off e-bay only to find out it had ICS but then google remote locked and wiped it. i wouldve been smarter and turned on airplane mode or smth just to keep it.
