Lumia has max 16 GB storage, can't be used as a removable drive. Samsung Galaxy has 16 GB storage, can take a 32 GB Microsim, can be used as a removable drive, has HD video...

Galaxy s 2 is the worst phone I have ever owned heats up and burns you, crashes randomly, opens touch screen randomly in pocket and reconfigures itself blocking contacts going into flight mode etc. The incoming volume on the headset is pathetic I have missed more calls with this phone than I ever have before. Over it after 2 months

Lumia 800 can multitask. I own one and trust me, the only significant difference is bluetooth, processor and ram.. I'd say go for s2 if u want android else lumia.

Galaxy SII only has 21 mbs HSDPA not 42.2...

lumia has a processing speed of 1400mhz but it still dont have the ability for multitasking.There one important difference between these two processors that the lumia 800 has 1400 mhz single core processor while galaxy s2 has 1200mhz dualcore processor.
