Samsung Galaxy S II coming soon, 4 commercials released (Updated)

The Samsung Galaxy S series has gained a very high level of popularity in the U.S., one of the main reasons being that there is a Galaxy S device available on every major carrier (as well as some smaller carriers). Since Mobile World Congress, Samsung fans have surely been excited for the release of the nifty Samsung Galaxy S II, sporting specs that are expected to blow everyone’s mind. Clarifying the rumored delay, Samsung stated that the device would be released within April, but the actual launch is different in every country. Nevertheless, the Galaxy S II should be getting here soon, and Samsung is teasing us with a series of commercials this week.

Samsung is not efficiently demonstrating what the device can actually do, which seems to be becoming a trend lately, but the advertising focuses more on the high quality display (1st commercial) and the voice command advantages (2nd and 3rd commercials). Frankly, although voice commands and Super AMOLED plus displays can be exciting, it would be more interesting to see the device’s full potential in other aspects as well. Regardless, it is exciting to get a peek of this device from an official source, because it means that the bad boy is just around the corner. If you have been waiting for the Galaxy S II, check out the videos after the break, and let us know what you think of them. Will you be getting your hands on the Galaxy S II once it is available?

Update:

Samsung has given us a 4th commercial to drool on, now featuring the thinness of the device. You think you will be making up with your girlfriend/boyfriend like this? Watch the video if you want to see how this device can make your life easier…

    If this phone comes to Verizon, I hope it earns the Droid moniker. That way,it will for sure get timely updates and not be plagued by bloatware. Unfortunately, the Fascinate suffered that cruel non-Droid fate. I bet the Droid Charge will be updated soon and will be Bing/Verizon wireless services(navigation,Vcast,etc) free.

    • http://Website Richard Yarrell

      Bing/Verizon services stinks to high heaven and the Droid Charge is a joke let’s be honest you already know that. Samsung and Motorola are the worst update wise and Verizon with all there stupid bloatware on all their devices is a total joke. Truthfully you can take Verizon and Samsung and just throw them both in the closest garbage can and lock the lid down real tight.

        OMG Nice! The bs RFS file system was really one thing holding me back from even considering this device after using a Samsung Vibrant!

        The other is how stretched everything may look on such a huge screen with the same 800×480 resolution :-\ I know it’s the same on the Evo and Thunderbolt, but every time I look at my friend’s Thunderbolt everything just looks so stretched on that 4.3″ screen compared to the 3.8″ on my MT4G. I guess it’s a matter of getting used to, but does this bother anyone else?

      You poor soul. You still believe the Galaxy S update fiasco was Samsung’s fault, huh? There, there. One day you will see the truth about the carriers being to blame, not Samsung.

        as the update issue has gotten old, blaming the carriers got old too…

        carriers might be the ones to blame, but that does not change the fact that updates for all the Galaxy S devices in U.S. got really late compare to other manufactures in U.S.

    Screw Samsung and all of their bloatware wrapped in a bunch of cheap plastic. I am sure the S2 will be better, but I couldn’t be happier with my G2X and the GPS works flawlessly unlike my Vibrant that will never see a fix. Life really is good with LG.

    • http://Website Virtue

      It is worth it especially if you’re a hardcore music nut. The DACs on the Galaxy series are ridiculously good and if you’re not a music nut, the screen, the thinness and the sheer amount of processing power should still win you over. HTC is all about appearances and although that isn’t a bad thing, I need something that can get things done quickly and not just sit there and look pretty.

    They are beginning to sway me. I was going to get the G2X (played with it in the store) but then I decided to wait and see when the Sensation and SGS2 come out. I want at least 8GB internal storage so that leaves the Sensation out right there (it only has 1GB internal storage. I like the 1GB RAM on the SGS2 also when compared to the 768MB on Sensation and the 512MB on G2X. SAMOLED + looks gorgeous as well instead of LCD’s on HTC Sensation and G2X (though they both look good). It also has HSPA+ of up to 21Mpbs as opposed to 14.4Mbps on G2X or Sensation.

    There are only 3 major things I hated about the Galaxy S and they have been fixed. They are as follows:

    1. RFS file system sucked – ext4 is now on the SGS2
    2. GPS fail – GPS has worked great for reviewers so far on the SGS2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SHJ6wFi7H8
    3. Pentile Matrix screen – It is now RGB Matrix on SGS2

    Check out the review of a pre-production version with the 1GHz Exynos (1.2GHz will be in the final retail release) and a tour of the Touch Wiz 4.0 interface *crickets* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4d-wWCf4CQ&feature=related

    It looks pretty damn nice to me. As for Touch Wiz, there is always ADW, Launcher Pro, etc. so this is a non-issue for me. The updates don’t bother me either as it’s releasing with the most current version of Gingerbread 2.3.3 this time. Heck, it’s been over 4 months since Gingerbread has been out and no one has the official update here in the U.S. with the exception of the Nexus branded devices. So no particular phone manufacturer (or wireless carrier) has been speedy this year with updates so that’s not an issue for me.

    I really like this website, but the immature comments seem to be made by introverted high schoolers. Anyway this new galaxy looks very nice and probably has enough power under the hood to compete with the best. I do happen to like htc, but i also respect other manufacturers’ devices as well.

      You obviously have never had a Samsung smartphone and how do you know that this is a great phone? I don’t know a single Galaxy S owner that is completely satisfied with their phone and for Samsung to have sold as many of these devices as they have and never fixed the GPS issues is inexcusable!! The only thing Samsung has going for them is Super Amoled, but the LCD technology is getting so good that I really can’t say that I miss that feature.

    Hi Taylor, Clark,

    Aren’t you sick of rolling absurd in discussions? You see that one person still continuing ruining this site.

    How about making a rule that the author of down voted post (hidden) loses the right to post in this thread anymore? Or make a “Complain for this post” button and with several violations the author has to be banned for several days? Or just make “Ignore User” (based on his IP which could be even hidden)

    Otherwise people will soon leave the site and never return.

    I for one will never buy a Samsung phone again. I purchased a Fascinate for my daughter for Christmas. It’s was barely updated to 2.2.1 a couple days ago when 2.3.3 is already slowly trickling out to other devices. When Samsung jumped on the Android bandwagon, they promised they would update their devices in a more timely manner but that hasn’t proven to be the case. Blow me Samsung!

Heck, it’s been over 4 months since Gingerbread has been out and no one has the official update here in the U.S. with the exception of the Nexus branded devices. So no particular phone manufacturer (or wireless carrier) has been speedy this year with updates so that’s not an issue for me.

    My sister has the first one. I wonder if it will be as light as the first one.

    I guess I had the G1 and G2 for so long that a phone without a pullout keyboard is weird and useless to me.

      Viaero Wireless. Won’t help most everyone here but if you live in Nebraska, East Colorado, and North Kansas you will get this device. Though they haven’t announced an official date it is in testing right now. It’s going to launch with there 3G network. Finally it pays to live in the butthole of America!

    If this phone comes to Verizon, I hope it earns the Droid moniker. That way,it will for sure get timely updates and not be plagued by bloatware. Unfortunately, the Fascinate suffered that cruel non-Droid fate. I bet the Droid Charge will be updated soon and will be Bing/Verizon wireless services(navigation,Vcast,etc) free.

    • Richard YarrellGuest 4 years ago

      Bing/Verizon services stinks to high heaven and the Droid Charge is a joke let’s be honest you already know that. Samsung and Motorola are the worst update wise and Verizon with all there stupid bloatware on all their devices is a total joke. Truthfully you can take Verizon and Samsung and just throw them both in the closest garbage can and lock the lid down real tight.

      • OMG Nice! The bs RFS file system was really one thing holding me back from even considering this device after using a Samsung Vibrant!

        The other is how stretched everything may look on such a huge screen with the same 800×480 resolution :-\ I know it’s the same on the Evo and Thunderbolt, but every time I look at my friend’s Thunderbolt everything just looks so stretched on that 4.3″ screen compared to the 3.8″ on my MT4G. I guess it’s a matter of getting used to, but does this bother anyone else?

        as the update issue has gotten old, blaming the carriers got old too…

        carriers might be the ones to blame, but that does not change the fact that updates for all the Galaxy S devices in U.S. got really late compare to other manufactures in U.S.

        I don’t care who’s to blame, only the fact of the update timing.

    • VirtueGuest 4 years ago

      It is worth it especially if you’re a hardcore music nut. The DACs on the Galaxy series are ridiculously good and if you’re not a music nut, the screen, the thinness and the sheer amount of processing power should still win you over. HTC is all about appearances and although that isn’t a bad thing, I need something that can get things done quickly and not just sit there and look pretty.

  19. They are beginning to sway me. I was going to get the G2X (played with it in the store) but then I decided to wait and see when the Sensation and SGS2 come out. I want at least 8GB internal storage so that leaves the Sensation out right there (it only has 1GB internal storage. I like the 1GB RAM on the SGS2 also when compared to the 768MB on Sensation and the 512MB on G2X. SAMOLED + looks gorgeous as well instead of LCD’s on HTC Sensation and G2X (though they both look good). It also has HSPA+ of up to 21Mpbs as opposed to 14.4Mbps on G2X or Sensation.

    There are only 3 major things I hated about the Galaxy S and they have been fixed. They are as follows:

    1. RFS file system sucked – ext4 is now on the SGS2
    2. GPS fail – GPS has worked great for reviewers so far on the SGS2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SHJ6wFi7H8
    3. Pentile Matrix screen – It is now RGB Matrix on SGS2

    Check out the review of a pre-production version with the 1GHz Exynos (1.2GHz will be in the final retail release) and a tour of the Touch Wiz 4.0 interface *crickets* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4d-wWCf4CQ&feature=related

    It looks pretty damn nice to me. As for Touch Wiz, there is always ADW, Launcher Pro, etc. so this is a non-issue for me.

      You obviously have never had a Samsung smartphone and how do you know that this is a great phone? I don’t know a single Galaxy S owner that is completely satisfied with their phone and for Samsung to have sold as many of these devices as they have and never fixed the GPS issues is inexcusable!! The only thing Samsung has going for them is Super Amoled, but the LCD technology is getting so good that I really can’t say that I miss that feature.

      This phone Is good, really good. I’ve had a HTC Magic In the past and It was sluggish, unresponsive and slow.

    How about making a rule that the author of down voted post (hidden) loses the right to post in this thread anymore? Or make a “Complain for this post” button and with several violations the author has to be banned for several days? Or just make “Ignore User” (based on his IP which could be even hidden)

    Otherwise people will soon leave the site and never return.

    I for one will never buy a Samsung phone again. I purchased a Fascinate for my daughter for Christmas. It’s was barely updated to 2.2.1 a couple days ago when 2.3.3 is already slowly trickling out to other devices. When Samsung jumped on the Android bandwagon, they promised they would update their devices in a more timely manner but that hasn’t proven to be the case. Blow me Samsung!
