T-Mobile Galaxy S II Gaming Demo, Drift Or Crash

Are you curious to see how the Samsung Galaxy S II handles gaming on it’s dual-core processor? Good news as we’ve got our hands on this two minute demo that shows how the Galaxy S II handles some hardcore racing.

        I have a G2x. The thing locks up all the time, causing it to miss important phone calls, which really sucks. Even a RAZR would beat the G2x.

    May pick one up as I qualify for best upgrade price. I keep phones as is and as long as they do what I need that’s what matters. Looking for a larger screen, larger battery, and dual core that the Vibrant doesn’t have. Oh, and you get Gingerbread which the Vibrant never got and probably will never get.

          I won’t be satisfied either until I get a high quality phone with all the original features and parts included and working like notification lights, fm radio, gps, dual sims, sd… and timely updates. I guess the mailman was right about one thing tmobile customers have to settle for the best they have to offer, because either hatred of the competition or love for tmobile discounted plans.

          Of course you can talk and be on the web at the same time, that crap you see from ATT is attacking Verizon because you can’t do that on Verizon or Sprint UNLESS you are on WiFi.

        • Durandal_1707

          Talking and texting at the same time is a feature of UMTS, which is the network that T-Mobile and AT&T use for their 3G and “4G” service. The only time you won’t be able to talk and surf at the same time would be if you only have a 2G signal from ATT/TMO (in which case you’ll be on GSM instead of UMTS) or if you are using a carrier that does not use UMTS, such as Verizon or Sprint.

        Like I said when the G2x came out and people were so excited to be guinea pigs, you might want to wait and see if it checks out okay first. Besides we had to wait this long all ready, in another month or two they will be giving them away on midnight sales. Lessons well learned from the Samsung Vibrant experience ;-P

    • Loueradun

      I have to agree 100%.  Apple is playing catch up with all the Android devices and it didn’t even release a new model/design.  What they really needed was a larger screen closer to the 4 – 4.3 inch range.  That said, Apple’s marketing of the device, combined with their blind following, will still net them a lot of buyers.

  • Nearmsp

    None of the above, until UMA is in it. If Sprint reports for iPhone 4S are good, I may not buy the SGS2 at all. So for me, wait and watch until thanksgiving is what i plan to do.

      The iPhone 4s is a joke, just like you and you’re comment. You must be one of those iPhone 3g users on T-Mobile. LOL @ you if so.

      • Nearmsp

        Do you feel better by attributing motives to statement that I will not go for a SGS2 if it does not have UMA. Or did the fact that I might go for an iPhone bother you? You are free not to buy an iPhone 4S. But why do you deride anyone who might get one? BTW, I am NOT a iPhone 3g on T-mobile. I have been with T-mobile over 7 years and I have had Blackberry’s for over 4 years now.

        I don’t need the Wi-Fi while I am in the US and I have great T-mobile signal everywhere. I need it when I travel overseas on business. The UMA is something that is great and that is one reason I stuck on to using BBs for so long due to their quad band and excellent UMA/Wi-Fi calling.

    Samsung is a joke that game plays smoother and looks better on my 3 month old htc sensation

    • Sanman202

      Well, when you up or an upgrade maybe you can consider something better. Apparently you just spent money on a new phone a few months ago and now this phone will be too much, so you knock it and have to make yourself feel better that you have the Sensation. There will always be the next best thing coming out. If i get the SGS2 maybe in a few months I will say wow I wish I waited. Everyone should’ve known this phone was coming out in a few months after the Sensation was released if you follow this stuff. 

      • Mastrorj

      • Loueradun

        Seriously?  I doubt you actually own a Sensation.  If you do, perhaps you should update the software.  This thing flies at stock.  It is even faster with a custom rom, which everyone who owns an android should look into.

      Wow, everyone is bashing the sensation here… Don’t know why…  It has the same processor as the SGSII, and plays the game very well.  The Sensation does have a higher resolution screen which does make it look better, there is no denying that.  Don’t know why you guys are so quick to dig on a phone with pretty much the same specs…

          wow…nice attitude. no wonder TMO didnt win the JD Powers award for customer service. Hey heres an idea( and i know its not u per say)stop putting out crap devices and we wont have to get a new phone every 3-6 months. Give us something worth keeping around then less customers will quit complaining. I know there are people that are full of it and lie to get phones but u cant treat us all like that. But then maybe its just u that sucks lol bc when i call the “cancelation dept” or retention/customer loyalty, they are very very nice people. N by the way im actually leaving tomorrow morning :) reps like u that make me confident im making a good decision leaving tmobile.

Every phone company has crappy reps and good reps. Go online and type in every carrier and you will find complaints for all. I think Tmo may have a few more than others because their coverage isn’t as widespread but overall really never had an issue with them.

    As I’ve been waiting for this phone all year, I settled (so far) for the G2x…It’s been good to me.
    I’ve learned from my SGS1 that the phone is only as good as the development supporting it.
    looks like XDA has got this ready in spades! Still a good phone, I love to see any hardware unboxing and or launching…It’s that hardware lust you know.

    And since someone thru in that Iphone 4S crap, That’s just a textbook case of how marketing and name recognition can sell your product with minor upgrades to bring it to the status quo (current competition specs) and people just fall all over themselves to have it….Sounds familiar…….

    This is a sweet phone. This or the amaze or maybe walmart will drop the price of the sensation and I may go that route. Btw I’m using a cliq 2 which has a sweet keyboard but im ready for some big screen dual core action. If I can’t let go of my keyboard addition then my touch4g slide! Options are good I’m just torn.

    WiFi Calling available built in the software of the phone, go under wireless settings and it has the option right there next to NFC toggle. I have the tmobile GS2 at my store to confirm. So stop your bitching , nerds / trolls with no social life.

    I’ve been a Blackberry guy forever but I’ve decided that now its time for me to either switch carriers or stay and get a Android phone. But with the Nexus Prime coming out, why would anyone get the Galaxy 2 when they could just wait for the Nexus. I’m not familiar with Android so maybe the Galaxy is gonna be better in some way. Maybe someone can explain it to me.

    • Sanman202

      It’s really a matter of preference. Blackberry as you know is great for work emails and the nice real keyboard. Android and Apple are more for the apps that are available and entertainment. I think the Galaxy S2 and Nexus Prime will be pretty close in specs. The Nexus will have less bloatware (preinstalled apps by carrier) that can slow the phone down and take up space. You can leave the apps as there will still be lots of space for new apps. Some people really don’t want those on there and they Root the phone. Rooting gives you the option to do more customization the the operating system and apps. 

      • Loueradun

        It is really hard to say that an 800×480 resolution display, and a 1280×720 resolution display are similar specs.  The only thing the galaxy SII had going for it was a slightly faster processor then other similar dual core phones out of the box.  This got gimped on the T-Mobile version, and now that it has the same chip as the Sensation 4G, it is a no brainier to wait until the Nexus Prime.  Unless you like a really large low resolution display…  I’d rather have my smaller qHD display on my sensation any day.
