    I've come from iOS & a 3gs and I'm really happy with my switch to Android & the galaxy s2.

    However I'm slightly disappointed with the video camera in low light. The HD is amazing, but when the flash/light comes on, it really brightens things up, but to a point of blinding people when you film them - ie on a night out etc.

    Is there any way to make the flash/light not as bright, or is this just a common thing wroth saxophones nowadays

    If that's your biggest disappointment, I'd say the device is a home-run for you.

    Yeah, I if I turn flash on during video indoors I blind everyone in the room and can see through walls.

    It does stop whatever interaction between people I am trying to film and they end up looking like rabbits on a lamping trip.

    An old photographer's trick - try (carefully) placing a layer or two of paper tissue over the flash as a diffuser. Cheap, temporary and surprisingly effective. :)

    I don't know what you're complaining about. My saxophone doesn't have a flash at all. It does work fairly well in the dark anyway though ;).
