    Why is it that the European Samsung devices dont have the update issues we have in the states? Everyone says its Samsung's fault, but isnt it the carrier that determines when the devices get them?

    There has not even been any Mention or Leaks that the GS2 is even coming to Verizon from anyone.
    I have info that it is in fact coming. Under what name it will release I do not know but I trust the info.

    Samsung registered names for the galaxy S2 in america and you can find it by using google. All I remember is the att version is going to be called ATTain. The galaxy line will always come to all carriers that's the point of this phone. Just like the first one arrived as captivate, fascinate and vibrant so does this one come with its own flair and names

    There will be a S2 device on Verizon.. now what its called and when it will arrive I dont know. But sammy is planning the same "all carriers" approach as the original device.

    Cept this time I hope it doesnt have BING..

    I already got a Thunderbolt. I might sell it to get the Galaxy S2 when it comes out, which is most likely around August. But I do have an upgrade in November, so I might just skip it for hopefully something amazing from Motorola, unlocked.

    There has not even been any Mention or Leaks that the GS2 is even coming to Verizon from anyone. At least Verizon said something about the Targa/Bionic coming but nothing about this phone. Nothing from the Panda or the Leaks nothing only just Speculation that they would do it because the did it with the old Galaxy S...
    Panda has tweeted about the GS2:

    "Up early to hit the gym.. got a samsung galaxy S2 to play with.. this is the device that shld have been the charge.." - @black_man_x , May 1, 2011

    Followed by:

    "... as for coming to vzw? Well sadly I don't have info to say what version we will get.." - @black_man_x , May 1.

    He has mentioned that he doubts that Samsung can shoehorn a lte radio in the current thin version of the phone.

    Curious what you think about the Atrix seeing that Bionic MAY just end up its close cousin.

    Yeah its off topic but I can do that cuz I started the thread lollol

    Panda delivers! Your impression of the phone is appreciated!

    I'm inclined to hold out on LTE until we get a more power efficient design.

    If SGS2 has 2.3 and everything else is good, I might get it even without LTE. Although I do live in a 4G area.
    Not sure what I'd think of Bionic in comparison to SGS2 if Bionic came with 1 GB RAM, unlocked, and good battery life...

    I'm waiting on the charge. After reading reviews for the sgsII, it has set some doubts into my mind. Plus the recent delay dont sit too well.
    I may get the charge then sell it for the II. Is what im doing with my 6 month old fasc to get the charge.
    This smartphone stuff is like the expensive mantoys we play with(cars, bikes, whatever) and so if youre passionate about any hobby, you suck it up and fork out the cash right?

    I want this phone and want it badly, I have been up for an upgrade for 6 months now waiting for dual cores to hit the market and this one specifically when specs came out.

    However, I really donno if I can wait till the end of the year as I still have the original storm which leaves so much to be desired. Brb, I gotta pull the battery on my Storm because it's frozen.

    The release shouldn't be too far off. Approximately 2.5-3 months out.......

    Are you basing this estimate using the release timeframe of the Galaxy S phones? Or some other information? If Verizon decides to put an LTE radio in it, then I could see it being pushed out much further. Although, I doubt that they'd do that at this point.

    As with all releases things can change but lets hope this time frame sticks . I'm hoping they push for a quicker release on it.

    If Verizon f's around with the SG2 release, I'm heading to T-Mobile... 100% serious. I'm done with Verizon and their ****ty "high-end" offerings. Thunderbolt?? Seriously?? Look at what the other carriers are putting out right now Verizon...

    BBLV I feel your aggravation. I've been sitting on an upgrade since August of last year and my other line is up in July. Verizon's line-up is so poor I haven't been able to lull the trigger on anything Android related.

    Its so frustrating to see ALL the high end Android devices go elsewhere. Luckily I really want this device or there would be nothing else worth getting. I dont blame you bro for moving on if they delay it. The worst equipment on Americas most reliable network wears thin after a while.

    The SGS2 looks great, even considered jumping to AT&T for it but I may likely get the Charge and when this comes along sell the Charge and get the SGS2. Seems like we are all trying to beat the clock with the unlimited data issue Verizon stated would end by summer.

    I just want a phone that has solid performance and the OS isn't a year behind. I have considering buying a used DX, new DX2, waiting on the D3, Bionic or just get the Charge. LTE sounds great, but as every has seen and comments on LTE may not be worth the jump this year.

    I would not buy the charge, that phone is a joke.






    Watching these videos I came away disappointed in the charge. We all knew it would not be worth the high price but the lag and the issues with the browser. I would rather have battery issues then lag issues. I can fix the battery issue by getting a bigger battery, lag issues you would have to hope a dev make a rom or the oem send out an ota (which we know samsung's rep with updating vzw's phones.).
