Now do you feel stupid trying to troll the sgs 2.Ha most sane people just put the back on their fones dont go around bending it.If you bend other fone backs they snap or buckle.

when you take it out, make sure it doesn't bend , because then you can't fit it back in place
what a joke this plastic back is!
and they want £500 for this?

> In reply to Sun @ 2011-05-11 10:29 from Mtyp - click to readI had wave throughout summer last year and it was just another top phone.The only problem was no decent twitter client and ended up using Snaptu which is a very good application,,especially as its only Java.

I cant wait till more people get the fone.They have stopped selling it on prepay at o2 stores as the quota has run out and the rest of stock is for contract.

I am going to start the battery test in next hour.

I hate this in Android,,when you go to taskiller there is always tonnes of stuff open.So you kill all tasks and exit taskiller.If you go back to taskiller a load of apps and stuff is open again.

Since Galaxy 2 battery life looks to be pretty much the same as with the first Galaxy I'm looking for alternatives when I'm gonna buy the phone.....Has enyone used a Mugen battery? It claims to improve battery life with 50% with it's 3200Mah capacity! It thichens up the phone a bit but i guess it's an acceptable price to pay for not looking constantly at the battery indicator! So....what do you think?

It is selling in India for 32000 Rupees on eBay.in , which amounts to 2450 AED.
Surprisingly electronics are more expensive here in Dubai.
There is a shop in Diera that gives good prices along with Axiom Warranty though.
Will wait till he gets it.
Lemme know if u find a good deal on this mobile.

Does this great phone has notification flash like all htc phones and nokia phones have ?
Is there any other brand has that feature( )
It is bothering me to press the button to check if there is a miss(call,message,etc.)
Thanks.

I also think power saving mode uses more battery.I had this on samsung i8510 and it was best to avaoid it.I am not 100% sure yet but when i have activated power saving mode and set it at 10% to switch off all the possible items and put screen at 30%.

The sgs 2 is very strong and if i grasp it both ends and try to twist i it rock solid.THE SGS 2 does NOT need a back cover as part of its design strentgh but obviously samsung had to put a back cover on to look nice and to stop battery falling out.

As of today i have had no crash and with my 32gb card at 25gb full the only slow down is the network speeds.Honestly all technology has steamed ahead yet network speeds since 2003 here in UK are stuck in a rudy mess.

I know uk has HSDPA but its very patchy and download speeds are variable from gprs speeds to 300kb/s at best.Just cause UK has hsdpa does not mean we achieve big s download or upload speeds.

Smartfones have gone from say 220MHz single core to 1.2GHz dual core and from 16MB memory cards to 32GB cards but network speeds have only increased from 52kb/s to average of 400kb/s at best.The world needs to go sattelites or wimax the whole planet. For example stop spending billions on upgrade after upgrade and just go straight to wimax.

> In reply to lien @ 2011-05-11 00:26 from N@Ve - click to readI did the neocore download from market and left it running till battery dead and got 5hrs 10 minutes about.I had screen set to auto with wifi connected and bluetooth on.I had twitter feeds updating every 30 minutes i think plus email.

I cannot do any old movie test because of hundreds of different codecs.The only way i can try this to be fair is to go out and record some video at 1080p then set it on repeat till fone is dead.I will do this today and video record some bits of traffic and so on give result.I will do these settings,,,

Set screen to full brightness,,bluetooth left on,,twitter set to every 10 minutes and wifi left connected, Email set to as it comes in and volume full blast through headfones.

The only other way is for you to give me the settings and you direct me to a sight to download a video to off on repeat mode.

> In reply to pmacb @ 2011-05-08 19:14 from myi4 - click to readfaultless? u must be kidding cause this phone is FULL of mistakes: no 3D (this unique feature will be very useful in future, so not very futureproof), mali400 is much weaker than powerVR 543 (not gonna get into specifics, just look that up) but even iphone 5's dual-core 543 will be more powerful than this mali, and their same cheap plastic that is now thinner with larger surface area makes it more breakable than ever
