Hello S2 users ...
I have S3 & S2 ,
It's my pleasure to share my ideas with you ...

Settings to speed up system to get maximum performance ( RAM & Battery ) for galaxy S2 :

1-in developer options scroll down to Drowing : select animation is off for ( windows animation scale - transion animation scale - animator duration scale ) .
2- in developer options scroll down to Apps : limit background processes and select 4 processes at most . ***( always repeat this selection after turn on or restart phone ) .
3- In application manager ( turn off ) (disable) unnecessary bloatware apps and services for ( google & samsung ) Because it always running in the background and consuming dramatically battery life and Ram . 
4- Not install many apps that consuming battery and Ram such as social network apps or games ...etc, You must know that most of these applications are running in the background even if not used !!!!! Only install what you really need in your daily life .
5- in display reduce brightness level less than half . ( not use auto brightness )
6- turn off ( Motion - Voice control - smart stay ) .
7- turned off ( sync ) google account & access to location .
8- Not use live wallpapers. 
9- reduce number of pages & widget on home screen ( maximum 3 pages ) .
10- always clean up system ( Ram and cash ) .
11- use home button to close apps that running in the background . After that go to settings > application manager > runnig and stop active apps ( Except system apps ) .
12- use power saving mode to reduce battery consumption ( limit cpu speed ).

For Extremist battery saving mode :

1- Use black wallpaper background in home and lock screens . 
2- Not use vibrations in ( call - ringtons - notifications ) .
3- Not use sounds in ( dailing keypad - touch screen - lock and unlock screen ) .
4-Switch off touch key light . 
5- Set screen timeout 15 seconds .
6- Not use any live Widget .

Battery charging :
1-To get speed charge close all apps during charge or use airplane mode or turn off phone before charge .
2- If you faced any problem such as slow ( bad ) charge , check your charger , Before you think about change the charger ( adapter& usb cable ) , first change the usb cable ( get new one ) then watch the result . 
3- Always use original charger , never use bad quality it will damage your battery and phone .
4- If you are using battery for more than 18 months itís better to change and get a new one ( original ) .
5- You can use an extended battery to get more than doubles your battery power ( many brands in markets , only chose high quality ...

Golden solution for most apps problems :
If you have any problem with any app
Go to settings > application manager > application ( name ) :
Force stop
Clear data 
Then restart phone . If the problem continues delete app then install it again , If the problem continues go to recovery mode and choose wipe data partition then reboot system .
If you canít solve the problem in any way you should format ( reset ) your phone or flash a new official ROM .
Other Information :
After update or flash a new ROM itís better to format ( reset ) phone to get pure system to avoid many problems such as overheating or bad charging.

They will not directly shut it down since it will be obvious that way. so they are / might Killing it softly.

Agree????

> In reply to User @ 2014-12-11 08:48 from y054 - click to readI advice for you to close gps, data connection, wifi, account sync and minimize the brightness if the pone will not be used so that the powerb consumption will be lesse and free some memory from your ram too. avoid installing unwanted application that consumes battery life too. and only charge if the battery is almost drained. constatnt charging will only shorted the battery life span. turn off your phone at least once a day so that it can also refresh and cool down.

Used an S2 for 2 years before upgrading to S4. i had a wonderful experience with S2, never had any problems with it. i think i enjoyed the S2 more then the S4. FM radio on S2 but s4 you have to listen to radio via the internet.
