Hi everyone,

I'm going to be writing a review when the SGSII comes out for the Clove blog, interested to know what questions everyone has for the review, and what they want to see demoed on video.

Let me know and I'll try to get through everyones questions in the review.

Will be a slightly different slant on the review than places like Engadget, in that I'll actually be using the phone as my fulltime handset, so if things like the GPS are amiss I should be far less likely to miss it than those reviews (real user feedback as it were).

Hmm, how's the battery life, build quality?
How's the weight for carrying around in your pocket?

I'd like to see all sorts of benchmark, especially web based ones to test out the browser. Also check out the filesystem to see if it's still RFS as that has a tendency to slow down the more apps you install. Image/text quality with such a low dpi display. Battery life tests including the screen on time, app usage time etc not just x number of hours/days that it lasted with a generic "moderate" usage.

If you were able to....
Sound/Music quality using a good pair of Studio Monitor headphones.
e.g. Sennheiser HD-280 PRO or Sennheiser HD595 or similar.
Or even just a really good pair of ear buds.

Can't wait for your review!! :)

Is there any way you could do some sort of comparative test in an area with marginal coverage?
(By this I mean a weak signal area where some handsets may work and others maynot)

Alternatively in an area where the handset is switching between serving cells (and maybe frequencies), as this is a scenario where call quality and connection seems to suffer

Would be interested in time taken to reboot e.g. the time from ending a call turning off the phone then how long until you can make a call or start typing a text.

O and its time travel capabilities so we can have it NOW!

i think first and most importantly , seeing as it'll prob be a exynos ... run those beachmarks that previously showed it as lagging behind tegra2 ... and see if the finished product preforms any better.

cause if it does i'll be placing my order right there on the spot.

sucks i have to gamble on stock running out of exynos before placing an order for one.

Since there is also a Tegra version of the SGS 2 perhaps he might even end up with one of those.

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to go through the menus on the samsung c5510.
Why I refused to buy it was due to the phones shortcut menu having facebook, myspace google as locked elements in the shortcut bar that cannot be removed. Due to this it put me off other samsung phones. I buy multifunction phones for the features of the hardware, not particularly for internet features my home network is for.

So in your review, can will you cover the navigation menus on the phone and let us know if it has locked elements that not all buyers might want,, and if it had the social networks links are they optionally removable

thanks
