I think the debate is over the severity of the problem, number of phones impacted, and whether each phone has the problem to the same degree.
Someone posted a screen shot of their phone a couple of pages back and proudly said, "see, my phone doesn't have it." He was corrected within minutes. He didn't have a problem and now he does. If the actual user of the phone can't detect the problem it can obviously be pretty subtle.
People that may be looking at purchasing a SGS2 could easily read this thread and think the phone's a disaster. That would be a shame. My counterpoint isn't by any means a personal attack or a denial of the issue. But, as in all discussion boards, exploring different viewpoints and sides of an issue should be healthy and welcome.
Expectations are personal. If yours haven't been met than by all means pursure any path you choose to rectify the situation. But just as it would be unfair of me to tell you what your expectations should be, the same holds in reverse when I offer a different viewpoint.
My wit sometimes doesn't translate well though the pen. If I offended anyone I'm sorry. Also, from PMs I've received, I'm not the only one that feels this way.
We're just not going to see eye to eye on this one, which is fine.
I don't think it's a bad thing if people see this thread and realize that they're about to buy an expensive device with a flaw that is annoying to many of us.
Of course all views are welcome, but there is no need to go to bat for samsung and/or defend a defect.
Whether or not it's subtle is irrelevant. Obviously, enough of us noticed to have a 400 post thread and multiple blog posts.
The path we're pursuing is raising awareness, investigating, and trying to reach out to samsung. It is made more complicated by the fact that it isn't out in some of our countries
