Well this is wonderful and all for people who have the Galaxy S2, but how long would it be for people with contracts locked to a provider to get the update?

Epic 4G Touch for Sprint already has OTA worthy leaks of 4.1.2 on XDA so its not going to be much longer.

the question is will this update fix the sleep of death? or the fact that the gps works when it feels like it?

Samsung has horrible update support and customer service.

Another reason to avoid their handsets until they can actually commit proper resources to support their products and customers. 8 months just for an update to a new OS that's on a flagship phone released last year, simply pathetic.

I currently use Galaxy S2, and it was my first Smartphone device. It's absolutely going to be the last Android product I buy. I'm switching over to iPhone whenever they release a new phone on the market. Samsung has a terrible support policy and their phones is just becoming bigger and bigger. On the other hand, Android is very unstable and most Apps are running more smoothly on Iphone devices.

I see Apple has a bunch of paid trolls on here posting, that's nice.

The S2 was one of the best-selling phones in history, and the S3 IS the best selling phone in history. So shove it.

If you are an S2 owner and love your phone, do yourself a favor: Don't put 4.1 on it. The S2 has neither the power nor Ram to support it and the improvements are minimal - there is also widespread complaints of faster battery drain due to MediaServer (MediaScanner) which are basically being ignored.

If your phone is years old and works, don't mess with it.

First off, iPhone 4 and 4S total sales completely destroy the S3, or S2 or S1, any of them.

There's almost twice as many iPhone 4 than S3.

In face, right now, there's more iPhone 5's than S3.

iPhone 5 numbers when measuring first weekend, first week, first month, etc destroy the S3 sales numbers, not even close. S3 came out 4 months before the iPhone 5, so they have a nice little head start, even with that they're not behind iPhone 5 sales when considering January sales.

S3 sales numbers are 40 million since the first 7 months.
iPhone 5 sales will be confirmed in the financial quarter by Apple, which the expected number is 50 million (first 4 months), 40 million in the first 3 months.

There's many sources for this information:

First 3 months of iPhone (40 M), First 7 months of S3 (40 M)

Just forgot to say, you're 100% wrong to say the S3 is the best selling smartphone in history.

It's not even in the top 3, but nice try, you should work for Samsung's PR, but they probably have standards such as blatantly false information that is easily verified disqualifies you from being hired.

I was responding to someone who was making inaccurate statements of fact.

Simple, if you can't understand that, I don't need a life, you need an education.
