I just want to see Samsung remake GS2 once again and just add the extras like NFC etc, so I wait for GS6 and hope better to be good, if not I am actually very happy with my GS2
amazing phone

I always say that Samsung went all out with the S2. Sometimes I hold it just for the fun of it. This smartphone has everything and it even seems faster to me than the rest and the rest of them. I have never had any form of memory issues and the CPU is lightening fast...much faster than some of the quad cores out there. The S2 is still a phone to reckon with.

that would transform your phone and junks you have accumulated,
that would improve your batter, if it doesn't then do a master reset but back up your data/files everything first.

make sure your battery is FULL before doing the master re-set

that is so important, if you battery fails during the re-set then you truly will have a big issue with the phone and may not be able to recover it.

still relevant, still interesting and still fast, why would I need to upgrade to anything?
I bought Case-Mate for it and honestly the phone feels so different, dropped it number of times, and Case-phone PROTECTECT the phone without a single scratches.

love GS2, and truly can't stand any of the latest Galaxy versions, Samsung lost it after they made the GS2.

let me help you, don't upgrade but just go to setting and hard-reset your phone, including formatting
BUT PLEASE BACK UP ALL OF YOUR DATA first.
then go to market and download Master Clean app, then you wouldn't have problem.
You can also try master clean first before resetting your phone to see if your problem resolved, if not do the reset,
since I have done that my battery last good 36 hour on average use, and I still managed to keep my Ginger Bread version of the phone.
no issue with the phone, I love it even more than the new GS4, or GS5

I wait for GS6 or wait for Sony latest before even thinking to upgrade, GS2 is truly the best phone Samsung has EVER made, truly fantastic

so do the above and let me know how you got on

Just dial *#9900# on your phone and select option 2 “Delete dumpstate/logcat” in the prompted menu. It's not necessary to root your phone either.

My i9100 says 2GB for installation files and 11.49GB of built in storage. That's a combined 13.5GB out of 16GB. That's excellent if you ask me. Maybe you should do a master reset and if that doesn't work reinstall or upgrade your firmware. My S2 is amazing and it's lightening fast. I have no complaints whatsoever.

If these are suppose to have 16/32gb Internal Storage, then why is mine saying storage 'insufficient' to install certain apps, and only have 172mb (AFTER deleting some Apps), and 2gb TOTAL? (2gb Internal Storage WTF?) CPU is always at 80%-90% constantly, if I use a Booster & Close Apps & Widgets running in background I get it down to 75%-80% (Thats closing ALOT of Samsung stuff & Loads of Apps running in background including Norton Identity Theft, Phone Tracker, and other important Samsung Stuff & Communication Apps...) - This is p*ssing me off big time! Anyone solutions on this one? It's always said Internal Storage 2gb, it's the real deal phone bought outright in 2012 for like $500
