And the problems start... As usual.
As usual Samsung look awesome in paper but the problems start to appear soon. bad cameras, low battery life, heating problems, wrong colours, low gps signal, bad sound during call etc, etc, etc.
super amoled was supposedly perfect and a total screen killer but when the galaxy S2 was near launching date the truth started to appear: bad colours, high power consumption, lower durability and, surprise surprise! Not that good resolution.
Had a Samsung Tv and was about the same... seemed perfect when new but after a while it started to go down the drain in terms of image quality so... Does this real surprises anyone?

Nokia C7 and N8 AMOLED screens have similar (purple) issue, why wasn't this reported on GSMArena?

hehehe now it the Displaygate and from Samsung, and people screams about Nokias screen, this is as faulty as Nokias....

Shame on Samsung and they are supposed to make the screens for theiir own phones and now their standards of quality are questionable...

The first!

Too bad for Samy, I'm waiting for my HTC Sensation:) However, I've seen GS II live, looks amazing and no yellow spots noticed!
