I will always point out facts and background about Samsung as a company, and not about the SGSII

As for the Galaxy SII, I had heard a lot of great things, so I fell all over myself to get one for review. As I mentioned, the antenna issues were bad enough that I got a second one to be sure.

I wasn't surprised that the HTC Flyer tablet had better signal, it has a sweet antenna … but the little baby low-end HTC Wildfire S? THAT Surprised me.

I was also genuinely surprised by the incompatibilities I was seeing - as you say, this is one of the best smartphones EVER … why the heck should I not be able to use Hulu+ on it? Makes no sense … but I am not alone.

As for the mass storage, I finally figured it out - on a Mac. On my work and home PC, the security software shut down the tricks Samsung requires, so it just wouldn't work.

For context, with my Droid 4 (and Droid Pro, original Droid, HTC Flyer, HTC Wildfire, HTC 7 Pro, ACER Iconia Tab, and others), I simply plug in the cable and BAM - storage.

On the Samsung Galaxy …
- Plug in cable
- Navigate to Settings->Wireless & Networks -> USB Utilities ->Usb Storage.
- Click Turn on storage
- Remove cable because it won't work if cable is plugged in
- Click Turn on Storage
- NOW plug in cable
- Click OK
- Click Enable storage

See my point? What is this, 1995 or something?
