2.0 out of 5 stars A genius gadget (headphones), 8 Jan. 2012
This is a great wireless headphone set. The wireless transmitter is plugged in to the phone jack. The advantage here is it can be used on any device which has a phone jack (TV, Laptop, Tablet, Smart Phone etc...). There is no need for a USB port. The sound quality is superb, no noise clear and works perfectly within a 10m range. It is stylish and perfect companion for a iPhone, iPAD, Tablet or a smartphone. It comes with a micro USB to USB charge cable (both headphone and the transmitter can be charged from this at the same time). Has a volume control on left ear piece.
I bought this in China on a recent visit there but to see that it is available on amazon is great (for about £20).
Highly recommended.

Just an update on this. The headphone charging has stopped working after about 4 months use. I am very disappointed. A good design and nice product let down by possible poor manufacture or specification. Hence have reduced its rating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rubber toy, 27 Dec. 2011
The rubber ball arrived in good time. But my dog (6 month old Lurcher) loved it with treats in side started chewing instantly. Within few minutes he started ripping pieces of the rubber. If this was made of nylon like material this would have been better. Less than a week now the ball is part destroyed. A very good idea (design) but not hard rubber or nylon. Did not work for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent charger, 23 Sept. 2011
very good battery charger. My CRV was giving constant problems n start-up when it was on low usage. I used this charger and it fully charged the battery (once) and since there is no problem. Recommend this very intuitive charger to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A super excellent smart phone, 30 May 2011
I bought Galaxy S2 after a thorough review of the phone and continuously monitoring feedback given. I must say, I am not disappointed but truly amazed how intuitive and well designed. I would agree with most of the reviews before and will try to cover some aspects not so far covered in reviews in the hope that it will help other prospective buyers in making a decision to buy a smart phone, after all you would be paying more than for a 42" HD TV.

I have been a iPhone 4 and Blackberry user and use the phone for e-mails and browsing a lot. Before deciding to purchase this phone (now have used it for about a week)I considered Blackberry Torch and iPhone4 and very much aware of capabilities and limitations of these.

e-mail, contacts, calander: you can set up multiple e-mail accounts (I have set up and using 3 accounts: gmail, hotmail and MS Exchange server). All work very well. You can synchronize e-mail, contacts, and calendar of all these accounts on the phone and they appear on the the respective application colour coded making it possible to see from what account it came from. Further you can access e-mails separately on different accounts on the same e-mail app.

Browser is very good and reliable. Yes, flash content can be viewed. Browsing is much faster and smoother than iPhone4.
Apps: Yes, it is not as extensive as the iTunes but there are enough Apps available (some preloaded, available from Samsung, and from Android market). Most Apps are free compared to iTunes. I did not have any problem with the Apps I downloaded so far.
Music Hub: It is primarily for you to download music from 7digital. The player there is not great. But there is a separate App for music which works fine with your downloaded music.
Social Hub: for e-mails, integrates well with Facebook, my space, twitter, LinkedIn etc.
Games Hub: There are free games for you to download and play as well as premium games for you to purchase.
Kies: provides the interface management App when connected to the computer (same as iTunes for iPhone). This is possibly one of the weakest. It is very slow to update. Having said that it works fine if you are bit patient. But to add music or download/upload photos or movies you really do not need it. You can use widows explorer to do that job directly accessing the phone and placing or taking content you need directly from or the the folder concerned.
Kies Air: this is one the good things. You can access all your content from the phone on a web browser by pointing the browser to the IP address given by Kies Air. For this you need to get connected on the your home wireless network. It works fine, and you can play music, view photos or videos wirelessly on any other device that is connected to your network and which has a browser. If you have a TV with a browser (Smart TV or other)or laptop you can play content fro the phone on it without any wired connection.
I connected my Galaxy S2 to a friends iPad this way wireless and could view photos but could not play music as iPad do not support flash. Good for the Galaxy S2 and shame for iPad/iPhone.

Maps, navigator, Google earth and similar Apps work fine. The Navigator works fine and is very responsive. It consumes the battery power and if you want to use it for long needs to be charged through the car charger. You would require a USB car charger and the supplied micro USB cable.
It has FM radio, treat on the move compared to iPhone. Comes with great set of high quality headphones with additional ear pieces.
The notification system is very good with all notifications iconised on a bar top of the screen which can be pulled down whenever you want to see the notifications.
Yes, with all these facilities battery life is low and you need to charge every day if you are a heavy user of these all functions. One way to improve battery life is to limit pushing of e-mails. These can easily be done on the settings menu.
Camera rear(8MP)works really well. The front camera at 3MP is also very good. Managed to get few very good quality photos. The quality of photos is better than iPhone. Screen quality is equal or better than iPhone. Comparing the screen size the iPhone4 now seems like a distant toy much smaller. There are many Apps available on the Android market (most as free downloads) which can integrate all your photos in (for example Facebook, Picasa etc.) one App.
Office & Pdf Documents: The Polaris App is pre-loaded in the phone. It can read and edit all office documents such as Excel, Word and PowerPoint.
Voice commands: Works fine. You can easily dictate your e-mails and all is then converted to text. I could get over 90% accuracy even with my first attempt. It is a treat to use.
I am using the Sunny Savers gel/Silicone hybrid cover (£3.95) which nicely fit in to the Galaxy S2. A perfect companion.
All in all a very good phone and I am very pleased with the quality of it.

UPDATE after 3months
I recently went to Australia and used my phone as a Navigator. It works superbly without any problems. Google maps and the navigator gives turn by turn instructions (audio as well). GPS works fine. You need to keep the phone connected to the car charger otherwise the battery get fully drained quickly. It saved me more than $100 as map downloads and navigators are expensive over there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super DAB/FM iPod Docking station, 29 April 2011
This is an excellent DAB radio. Contrary to one previous review DAB function is excellent. FM radio works fine. Docking works very well. Although not stated it works fine with iPhone4 as well. It has Clock display with date when on standby. We are using it as a radio/docking for the iPhone4 in the kitchen. Great product.

Philips HQ7380 7300 Series Rechargeable Rotary Male Shaver

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent shaver, 4 April 2010
I have used Phillips shavers for a long time. this was the replacement for my previous one. it is very good, less noise and vibration, washable blades and ergonomic. However, the case type pouch is poor and the cable for changing is much poor than the older versions.
Shaving quality has improved a lot.
