    So far I'm well pleased. I haven't had it long to do some messing and testing but so far all seems pretty flawless.

    Only thing I am not fond of is the scrolling/swiping of the screens, it seems as if you have to really fling your thumb to get the screen to move. Sometimes I have to flick the screen more than once, but that's a minor thing really.
    Is there a setting for that I am missing?

    Only other thing I noticed was I took a pic, and the res is at 3264x2448 and the pic looked kinda grainy and fuzzy. That may be a setting, not sure, but if anyone can assist me on that I'd be grateful.

    Overall so far so good.

    when you open the camera, hit the little settings wheel looking deal.. scroll down to resolution & presto set it where you like

    I have also noticed the poor images the camera takes
    I have it set to 8 megapixels and the pics look horrible on the phone. Transfer the pics to your computer and they end up looking great

    Agreed, they do look bad on the phone. even pix that I had on my SD card from my other phone look bad...

    Try setting screen mode to dynamic (settings/display) pictures look fine to me on mine.

    dynamic screen mode makes my font look weird. The dialogue boxes look going back to standard now

    What are you running for a ROM? I have it on dynamic and all it does is adjust color temperature some (for richer colors) my dialog boxes and font looks normal.


    ps Have you changed your dpi settings at all??

    I love the pics the camera takes.I get great pics both from taking them and the ones sent to me come out great.I love the camera so much,and I'm still trying to figure out why people say this phone has a bad camera?!?!?!?

    I think they are referring to the display (though I am quite happy with how the display looks). I do like the camera for this phone and is one of the reasons I got the SGS2

    I'm loving the camera also, takes really fine photos and excellent video also. I've had the phone just over a week and have found everything to be excellent. Not a single glitch or problem.

    Just got mine Monday and I am really impressed. Already rooted and running CM 10. Having issues with MMS now so probably going back to a stock ROM.
