    I love so so so so so much having the Galaxy S II. I was recently staying at my Aunts house for three days. She is in a nursing home and I have been maintaining her yard and upkeep on the house for her. My mother asked if I had internet installed at the house because she had seen I was making posts on Facebook. Why would I do that when I have great 4G internet service on my Galaxy S II. Great screen, watched videos, played games, social networking, check email, listened to music and so so so so so much more. With a Seidio T-Mobile Galaxy S II Active Case, my phone will feel like royalty wrap in that beautiful purple case. 

  • Carla7216

    First let me begin by saying, “I LOVE TMOBILE” the Representatives that I’ve dealt with were absolutely amazing! To me, my Samsung GA II (T989), is the best phone I’ve owned! This phone goes above and beyond what I have imagined. The speed, the software, the storage, the apps, have all been marked in high standards in my opinion. My GS2 has been working great since I purchased it last year. To me it’s way better than the IPhone and it’s SIRI! Hands down! I wouldn’t trade my phone for any other unless there is an upgrade to my GS2 that surpases all my expectations! Go Team Tmobile! A+++++ in my book! My prayers are with you all. God Bless You!

  • Mikecvtm

    I love my galaxy s!! Im a mechanic and its very helpful when I google for dianostic code on the go or watch YouTube for “HOW TO” locate parts while working on the car. The big screen help out alot and I forgot to mention the galaxy s2 processor is stupid insane fast and battery life is awesome.

  • E Haynesworth

    Hello the name is Earnest, walked into a t-mobile store to pay my monthly bill, As i was about to pay my bill i turned my head left just to take a peak at the phone display only thing is i couldn’t turn my head back to bill screen, my eyes were monkey glued to this beautiful bright gigantic memorizing device, store clerk whispering its the best in my ear (repeatedly), long story short I bought the SGS2 went home tried to call my mom to tell her the good news and was greeTed with the infamous “your t-mobile service has been temporarily suspended” i forgot to pay the bill! Lol i love my t-mobile galaxy s2, best phone known to man!

  • James Guaragna

    I could have gotten the GSII for ANY carrier at all. But I chose TMOBILE because I am a 7 year member of the TMO family. I waited for this phone to come out for so long in the U.S. and replaced my Nexus S which was near and dear to my heart. BEST DECISION EVER! This phone does it all. It’s like Michael Jordan in Space Jam. Or Bow Wow in ‘Like Mike’. Or the Road Runner, because we all know that the iPhone is Wiley Coyote. This case looks awesome and I would rock it proudly! GSII for the win!

  • http://www.nerdberry.net Sleepracer

    I just ordered my Galaxy S2 it will be here on Tuesday! I cannot wait to use it to manage my websites! It would be nice to win the black Seidio Active! Good luck to all!

  • James

    I love the gs2 because it makes iphone fans wet their pants. Provide competition there by help drive prices down. Thanks for the closest thing to a iphone killer. :)

  • Diazjustin75

    I love my galaxy s 2 its amazing. The big screen is very nice especially when you watch a movie or watch a video on youtube, the colors and picture is just incredible. The swipe works great I love it cause its a lot faster then hitting esch button and I just love it. The battery life is out of this world on one full charge I can use my phone for almost two full days its incredible. These are just a few reasons why I love my galaxy s 2!!!!

  • JC

    My Galaxy S 2 is an essential part of my life.  Raising two kids in sports, school, after school activities…..I need a phone that would provide me the resources to effectively and efficiently communicate with them and their busy schedules.  And let us not forget mine as well.  Having the ability to access countless resources via the phone has saved my life. :)

  • John in PC

    I love my GS2 because it beats the heck out of my gen 1 Moto Razr. :)

  • AmyH

    I have been a Blackberry user for 5 years and finally, in December, I made the switch to the GSII. Best decision ever!  I use it for everything!  Look up stocks, recipes, weather, news, movie facts – even divorce papers.  Been with T-Mobile since since ’98 when it was VoiceStream.

    I love my galaxy s2’s huge, vibrant super amoled display. Even though many people complain about the size of the screen, I can’t seem to live without it now. I also love how slim the phone is, it goes in and out of my pockets easily. People ask me if I had the iPhone 4s all the time, I just tell them no it’s better, it’s a galaxy s2! I don’t know how well the snapdragon processor fares against the exynos Iprocessor, but I think the performance is quite superb. Scrolling through home screens is smooth, loading pages in the browser is quick on 4G, high quality or HD games also run really nicely. I don’t see any other phone that I would want to use for a while, granted the galaxy nexus is only on Verizon, and I plan to stick with Tmo for quite a while longer.

  • Lanford17

    My wife and I have three daughters,( ages 8 months, 11 years, and 16 years). I love them all dearly, and they pretty much rule my life. They do however take over the house when they are home. My Galaxy S2 is the only control that I have, it is my microcosm of entertainment, my escape. I super love this phone !!!!

  • Smilingbulldog

    The Galaxy S II saved my life. I tried bacon but that was a big let down. With the Galaxy I can be myself. Sometimes we just sit together quietly without saying a word. That’s how you really know your are right for each other. Sometimes we even catch ourselves saying the same things; Jinx!

  • EB

    My galaxy s II is the only phone that can help relieve my sexual tension. Anywhere. Anytime. ;)

  • Edrnmike

    I use my Galaxy S2 to look up drugs and procedures as an RN practicing in a busy ER. It is faster and more portable than the many books I would have to have at bedside. I also use the great display to show medical information and pictures.

  • Maaguilar

    Three Galaxy SII is amazing! I love the screen and the speed! I’d love to replace my current phone with the GSII!

  • Felix Rosario

    I love when i sit next to someone with an iphone on the bus and my screen just looks 10 times better

  • Flakita12

    Samsung Galaxy SII better than apple TMO for life yo!

  • Ellemmarr

    Ive rocked Galaxy devices since the Vibrant and the GS2 is by far the best phone Samsung has made. When I show off Celeste (Yes I have named my GS2) I tell people I don’t know why I would change it because it does absolutely everything I need and more. The huge Super Amoled screen, the exceptional camera, the speed of the device, and the great (well better than most) battery life is what makes me so happy with my phone. The next GS might have a bigger screen, faster processor and maybe even a stylus pen, but my GS2 is riding with me for the long haul.

  • chris zimmerman

    I first grew to love Android with my G1, then the HTC G2 when it came out.  When my G2 died, I made the switch from an HTC phone to Samsung, and I have to say, I’m thoroughly impressed.  The build quality is excellent, and the specs on this phone rock.  I was trying to hold out buying a new phone until the quad-core phones came out, but after rockin’ my Galaxy S2 now for about a month, I don’t foresee any reason to have to upgrade until this phone just plain out dies.  Extremely responsive, excellent display, and battery life has been decent as well.  I’ve suggested to everyone I know that this is by far the best phone I’ve ever owned, and have strongly recommended it to other!! 

  • Jason

    I like my GSII so much I got my wife one too!

  • Julia

    My daughter really would love to have this one!

    • Tbyrne

      Well then, tell David why and maybe you’ll get one!

  • http://twitter.com/wiseyoungbuck wiseyoungbuck

    I love my Galaxy S II. The screen is great. The phone is so light. I just got one and I’d love to have a new case!

  • Randy McCamman

    The Galaxy S II has been a lifesaver for me.  It allows me to stay in communication with my children.  I can see where they are.  When we travel, its no longer “Dad, how long before we are there”, now with the GPS functions, I can give them a definite answer and no longer are we getting lost.  The kids stay entertained with the huge amount of apps and games and movies this phone has.  The screen is so big, that I don’t have to squint my eyes to read it.  It’s an amazing phone!!!

  • Carlostorres9515

    I helped my friend find out that her iPhone 4 wasnt 4G with my super duper Galaxy S II

  • Krazyaz

    Id love to win a case the gs2 lets me talk with my family overseas when im at school via skype its the oonly time their on

  • Ashsterling78

    I love my galaxy s II. I went from having an old out dated small little phone to this big screen and very powerful one. It keeps me updated with all my friends at super fast 4g speeds. I’m always on the go and it’s nice to have a phone that can keep up with me. Now I just need an awesome case that can protect it.

    I don’t carry a tablet or a GPS or a video player or crayons for my grandson, who lives with me, or a dozen other devices that others might carry, cause my Galaxy SII does everything… and beautifully. My t989 wakes me in the a.m. I read the news in the morning after answering all my email. I check my schedule for the day, upload the photo of the cake my grandson helped make for my birthday yesterday to my Facebook, send my daughter a text message via my Google voice account, navigate to my first appointment and share my ideas with the photos and videos on my t989. I went for coffee and looked up the current value of my home and suggested amount for renting it out my taxes. I used Google search to resolve a dispute with my friend over how old Jennifer Aniston is. After picking up my grandson from school, we went for lunch and he used my phone to read his picture books, play his games and doing coloring. I did let him watch a little “kids TV”. At his bedtime we read a couple of his picture books together and when I put him to bed I relax with my Galaxy SII doing what every comes to mind. At 64 years old, this beautiful screen is easy to see and the colors are beautiful. The screen is big enough to enjoy everything and the device is small and light enough to enjoy carrying around. It’s the most used thing in my house and I can’t imagine my life without it.

  • TangoCharlie

    After Palm and Windows Mobile my GSII is my first Android phone.  When people ask what it is, I tell them it’s “my right hand and part of my brain.” I have over 2000 contacts and rapidly growing because it’s so easy to add new ones through gmail. As a field service tech, I’m constantly using it for calls, text, email, navigating, web, and even for remote access of client devices. The speed and power make it SO much better than any phone I’ve used before and I’ve lot count of the number of apps… I had to make a folder just for all my astronomy apps!  (try a HUD app for location, elevation and azimuth!)  Add Netflix and Crunchyroll (anime) and I’ve got everything I need in one place.

  • Melissa_robbins56

    It’s an amazing phone!

  • Mspri730

    I love my galaxy s 2….it is like a mini pc at the palm of your hands. I don’t use my computer anymore because I can do everything on my galaxy s 2. Love the big screen, the apps, how fast it is. I just love everything about it. I even got two of my friends to get it and they love it!

  • Darius Nguyen

    light, fast and sexy … “that’s what she said”

  • Charles-Lee Howard

    The Galaxy S2 is an AMAZING phone, in which I am able to do a myriad of things without have ANY delay time. Its the easiest phone to multi-task, and it allows me to send and receive through various manners of communication information domestic and globally. So much so that 2 co-works, 1 friend, and my mother (who lives abroad) bought the device (various networks) and MORE than happy with purchase, and I have more rethinking their iPhone purchase and/or think about when they renew their contract to go Galaxy S3 (since the speculated to be release soon). The Galaxy line of phone ARE amazing and now pondering to acquire the Galaxy Pad 11.6! 

  • Fiasco43

    My galaxy s2 is the first 4g phone ive ever owned. From watching netflix while on my lunch break to finding my sons doctors office to listening to my entire music catalogue via google music, I LOVE this phone. Its ridiculously fast. I get to take hd photo/video of my two year old with the 8mp camera. All my calenders are synced. Multiple emails synced. Blazing fast internet. Love it!!!!

  • Harieoliver@Yahoo.com

    I love my galaxy a II so so so so so much I went out and bought the Samsung galaxy tablet and TV as a computer monitor. I loooovvvveee my galaxy s II

  • Blackberrypearl9100

    The gs2 allowed me to stay connected to my college friends. It is amazing how one aspect of my life can have life altering changes. Please give me the case so that I can keep the nexus between my friends and I open. 

  • Aln0118

    I love my Galaxy S II because its big and beautiful display allows me to watch movies when I’m out camping. I also was able to strap it to my forehead with a headband and record video in 1080p as I scaled rocks on a mountain. It almost fell though, so I need a hard and strong case to protect it…I wonder where I can get one.

    I love my galaxy S2 because it’s fast and smooth.  Much better than my old phone.

  • David Barros

    This is the nicest phone out there I really like it.

  • EddieT

    Sometimes I can be a little hard of hearing due to all the concerts I’ve been to without hearing protection. Yesterday, a friend introduced me to the Purple VRS apk. I’ve always wanted to learn sign language but it was always too difficult & time consuming, so I never got around to it. Today, I used this app to communicate with a deaf person! He had an iPhone. He saw me multi-tasking with my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S2 on public transit, and wanted to know what kind of phone I had. At first, we couldn’t communicate at all which was very frustrating. But, once we started using Purple VRS, it was LIFE CHANGING! For the first time in my life I was communicating easily and fluidly with out having to know sign language. Awesome! I would not have been able to do this on my former non-android.

    At home, my roomies are always complaining that I use the desktop computer too much, since they fear having to pay $$ for a huge electricity bill.. now, I spend most of my time on my Tmo Samsung Galaxy S2 via WIFI access, anywhere and every where WIFI access is available, significantly reducing my desktop computing use and making me 100x more productive. I’m so glad I bought extra batteries and an external battery charger, it’s so easy and smart to take extra charged batteries for unlimited use of this phone. Without my Samsung Galaxy S2, I wouldn’t be as successful as I have been these last few days of owning it! It’s like a whole new adventure now that I have it! :)

    Well, the SGS2 WOULD be my favorite phone if I had one!  Actually, I’m considering using my upgrade eligibility that becomes available next month.  This would probably clinch the deal, don’t you think???

  • Mcatmadness

    The samsung galaxy s 2 has been an amazing phone. I was able to download MCAT apps that help me to study for the MCAT and to pursue my dreams as a physician. This phone has also helped me in class because I can record lecture notes in order to ensure that I don’t miss a beat in class. I also take great photos in lab with my 8mp camera, which helps on practical exams in physiology. This case would be a great way to make sure nothing happens to those crucial apps and would help me on my journey to becoming a compassionate physician. I hope I win. 

  • Timothy Hu

    I love my GS2. Made me give up my Blackberry 9700 and jump off the sinking ship finally. Night and day!

  • Handoyo

    I love my Galaxy S2….The screen is large enough for movies, but it’s still fits perfectly in the pocket. It’s fast, light, and very customizable (well all android phone are very customizable). All in all….best purchase I made last year!

  • Tkerwin206

    I love my Galaxy S2 because it has literally helped me watch my nephew grow up even though we are so far away. With my sister having the same phone I am allowed to video chat with my nephew all the time to keep in touch! I also get to receive excellent quality photos and videos of my nephew  through picture message on a daily basis. Im really glad I have A galaxy S2
