    Strange...I don't see a secondary mic hole at the top of the device like the original GSII. What gives? No noise cancellation?
    thats a dumb omission IMO.... lame

    I noticed that the AT&T has a mic on the top, although on a different position than the international version:

    The wait for this thing is consuming me. I think these reviews and videos make the wait even harder. Gaaaahhhhh

    Hmmm good question. It's definitely not there.

    ahhhh. that means my eye sight is ok. I saw that too. Means we are not getting the noise cancelling feature of GS2 .. The list of things missing in the device is growing faster than the excitement of its release...

    It makes it possible, but I wouldn't write it off completely yet. It's certainly possible they moved it somewhere less obvious on Sprint's variant. What else is on this list of missing things? I can't think of anything at the moment.

    There's a rectangular opening on the top of the phone that's not present on the international Galaxy S II. Is that a microphone or an indentation to pry the back cover off?

    I'm fairly sure it's there so you can pry the cover off. As you can see from the pictures, the battery cover on Sprint's version extends over the edge of the phone, while the International version does not.

    If this doesn't have noise cancellation I'll be pissed off. I actually use it for voice calls

    There is a pin-hole next to the camera lens. You can see it with the back cover removed...wonder if that's it.

    You've got some serious attention to detail man. That could be it, but isn't it odd to place a mic under the battery cover? Maybe they found that the thin plastic of the Galaxy SII battery door made it possible to put a mic under?

    I want to see what is under the Qualcomm sticker that is seen in the gallery of the slashgear review. My guess is it is under that or it doesnt come with one.

    The sticker was taken off for some of the pictures. There is no mic hole on the top of the casing.
