Best phone yet! Apart from the Samsung interface...

So far this has been the best phone I've used! The screen it wonderful and the phone itself is quite responsive with no hints of lag whatsoever. The camera takes some great pictures. With the battery life, I can get a full day's charge from it which is pretty standard. The amazing part of it though is that I achieve it when I've been playing games on it. Probably the only qwim I have would be the interface that Samsung put on this phone. It's not as good as the other flavours of Andriod interfaces I've tried. Apart from that, best phone out there.

I went from the iphone 3GS to the new Samsung Galaxy S II with TELUS and could not be happier. I went back and forth between the iphone 4S and this phone before finally settling on the galaxy SII X. I had some growing pains going from ios to android but after a week i was right at home.

- amazing big, bright amoled screen
- great battery life
- great android apps for facebook & twitter
- gmail integration is fantastic
- Turn by turn navigation just works!
- Speed to text is really awesome

- It can be a little overwhelming/confusing starting out on android
- android virtual keyboard isn't as good as the ios keyboard
- a little big

I really recommend the Samsung Galaxy SII line to anyone out there who is deciding between Apple and Android.
