    I have just read that the initial cost for the Galaxy S2 is going to be around the $700-$800 price point...

    That is ridiculous.....what do you think?

    Unfortunately, I predict this $700+ range is going to be the new standard for 4G phones. Example: HTC Thunderbolt which is rumored (confirmed possibly?) to be $750 full retail.

    It's still cheaper than the iphone4.

    Wow that sucks for Verizon users, the HTC Inspire 4G that just came out on AT&T for $99 on a two-year contract or only $399 off-contract is nearly the same phone in every way. (Same processor, same Super LCD screen, same body build, etc..)
  5. That's about right for an import pre-order. Bad for a domestic US phone. They are what, usually $550 off-contract?

    woah woah woah, so this puppy will be $700 with a 2 year contract when it comes out in the us? And this is going to be on Att right?
  7. hahaha what

    hahaha what Android Enthusiast

    no it will be $700 unsubsidized. theres no way they would sell an unsubbed phone for over 200 the atrix specs destroy this one and is only 200
  8. I don't see how it destroys this one at all. Same 1GB ram, dual-core processor. The screen on the s2 is premium grade stuff that is samsung-exclusive. The reviews of the qHD screen show the lower tech behind it. A biometric scanner is a commodity, even on budget laptops, and it's more of a peculiarity than a necessity on a phone. The docks are just way expensive... The Atrix is a good contender, but not head-and-shoulders above the rest.

    That is a lot of money for this phone. Who knows what bugs it will have in begining. What other good 8meg camera phones are out?
  10. That site looks like a very unreliable source, not to mention it is all speculation. No matter what, the price will be $199 w/ contract in the US, competitive with the Atrix and Optimus 2x.

    True :) The G.S II has more behind it in my opinion.
    Super AMOLED+, 8MP camera, and 1080p video recording. Samsung has the resources to be more competitive than the rest atm.
  12. That is just at best buy I'm sure it will be cheaper from verizon since verizon is usually always 50 dollars or so cheaper than best buy

    saw ads for uk stores selling it at what converted to $880 us dollars. google search for uk release and has several sources at about the same price for a "sim free" phone.

    What sort of contract do you think this would be on in the UK? I'm hoping for

    Dude, verizon sells for higher than best buy. I think it does anyways.
  16. No your wrong best buy is always more

    Remove the 20% VAT because that doesn't apply here: $880 - 20% = $733

    Sounds right between $700 and $750...

    best buy or verizon is kinda irrelevent. specs for this phone don't show it as a cdma phone. no verizon or sprint in the current configuration.

    Haha noway,
    4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display • 1.2 GHz dual-core SoC processor, ( NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 or Samsung’s Exynos )
    • 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of on-board storage with micro SD card slot
    • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with flash, with 1080p full HD recording and front facing VGA camera
    • Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
    touchwiz 4.0, MHL and USB OTG, gorilla glass

    and the atrix
    4 inch qHD display – 540 x 960 pixels • NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor at 1 GHz
    • 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with 720p HD recording and front facing VGA camera

    I don't think any phone out right now can compete against the s2's specs basically set the standard for the next generation of smartphone.
